 Post subject: Drawing over FOW
PostPosted: Sun Jul 23, 2017 4:39 pm 
Hello,

i am playing a shadowrun campaign and i often use maptool to show the building's computer network over the normal map.
I'm currently using drawings to create the network links, but i'd like that to be shown over the fog of war. Is there any way i can do that?

hmm...basically no. one way i can think of is to make the grid tokens pc owned with .5 vision range, that way the players can see them but not beyond the cell of the grid token.

If you are on 1.4.1.7 or my Fork, and the network is a stamp/token, you can check Always Visible and it may give you the results you want?

There is one other alternative and that is to use a really large graphic as your FOW texture.

This has the disadvantage that the image is tiled. So it needs to be pretty large. There is also the difficulty of lining up the FOW texture with your map. My advice is start with the FOW texture and then draw the map.

So apparently there are at least three methods to achieve your goal...typical maptool...
