Post View Distances?

i think the FOG OF WAR in this game is way too over-fogged ...
i mean you cant see a shit in 200 meters
and even if your in the air , you still cant see more then 200 meters away
you see 200 under you , and 200 meters forward of you

i found in google some ways to decrease the fog by editing the game files, but after i tried it , it seems that it really worked, but i get kicked by PB for using MD5 TOOL

its not realistic..
and its annoying

anybody else agree that the fog of war need to be removed or atleast to be decreased

It's more than 200 meters, and no, I don't agree with you.

I think its the wrong definitions of "fog of war"

Your talking about the view distance.

Each map has a tailored fog distance

this distance is highly dependent on the view distance of each map, which is chosen on a performance vs longer distance basis...

also since you've seen the game files, you KNOW its more than 200m

Play Vanilla Strike at Karkand and then come back to PR.

You won't say anything like "over-fogged" or "can't see shit" ever again in PR

While increasing the view distance on all maps would be great, its just not practical on most maps.

The further you can see in game, the more details your computer has to render. This causes a drop in frame rate and for some it can cause crashes.

view distances are fine atm.. only maps that could do with a bump would be Silent eagle and Shija valley..

Renamed thread.

Fog of War sounds like a really good name for an indie civil war game or something.

Well actually Noddy, Fog of War is the term used to describe the "blackness" in RTS games that you need to explore

Chuva_RD : You want to remove bugged thing but dont tell how to fill formed void.

first ive heard of "fog of war" is the area on Starcraft's map where you haven't explored yet. but it wasn't the first RTS to have this.

i think the view distance is nicely tuned on most maps.
