I've been running games with just black as the fog of war, but I was playing around and noticed you can set a texture. I've experimented but I haven't been able to find anything I really like. Anybody have any suggestions for good fog of war textures? I'll take as many as I can get.
I was thinking, if you don't care about the whole map being shown, you can use fog for atmosphere. If everyone is using personal fog views, you can reset the exposed fog area with onTokenMove. If I recall, the soft fog doesn't have a texture, so it's already fog-like. I plan to use this for weather effects outside, like snow and rain. I too have to find or make those textures. I don't think the rain or snow overlay that comes with MT is detailed enough for me, but I do like the fog overlay as a FOW texture.
edit: Here are a couple of textures I'm going to use for snow. The heavy snow still has some transparency on it, but just barely. You can make out vague shapes of buildings through it if they're of contrasting color.
