Fog of War Expansion

Postby ParadiceCity9 on Wed Oct 06, 2010 5:32 pm

I sparked the idea of making a script which allows you to see how many territories of yours your opponents can see. This would save an unimaginable amount of time on team games especially in trying to decide who to deploy on in a fog game, for example. Thoughts?

Isn't this covered by the Map Inspect feature of BOB? I don't play foggy often, or teams often, so I can't check, but I know that in team games, I can hover over "Team 1" and see which territories are safe from attack and which are not.

Right but I'm thinking like explicitly say how many territories of each person the other team(s) can see.

Hmm, I don't think that's possible on most maps, since you'll have to guess for a one-way-attack or a one-way bombard whether the enemy holds that spot. So it's difficult to find a precise number. For standard maps (only 2-way attacks), it could work though.

Yeah, it will work only for simple maps. Bombardments and 1-way attacks will be much harder to guess. Or you would be forced to make them unsafe by default.
