Fog of War
« on: April 05, 2010, 06:39:14 am »
Hi,

I was curious if the battlescape could be made more interesting designing a fog of war
This would greatly enhance the creepy feeling the original game was ment to create.

I been checking out the wiki but i cannot find anything on Fog Of War.
It means al squares that are not in visible range of the soldier’s line of sight, will remain hidden and the battle map would need exploration.
Once explored the tile squares will remain visible but grayed out if there is no line of sight.

Combined with the stealth idea found here http://ufoai.ninex.info/wiki/index.php/Gameplay_Proposals/Visibility
Motion sensors and smoke grenades surely will have more tactical use.

Iff someone already posted about this, then forget i even mentioned it.

I remember this being discussed quite a bit in this forum before, a long time ago, with almost the same subject line.

Please use the search in the forum as well, not just the wiki.

Regarding the actual topic, I know what you mean, but I'm not sure it is possible with the current game code's architecture, at least not without lots of work.

One of the main coders could answer that better.
