    Did you know maptool does dynamic line of sight calculations that directly interact with the fog ? That there's a "visited but but visible" soft fog like you find in RTS games ? The most recent development work is making vision and light interact with each other so you can say "My player is an elf" and get twice the visible area based on the current light sources in the area ? Each player also has their own view of the map.



    If you knew those already, my bad

    Thanks for the great write up naryt ! I'm always looking for ways to make MT better.

    On a side note, this kind of functionality works fantastic in orpg because of the ability to put in your own full scripting. I've resisted putting full blown scripting in for a couple reasons, which are probably pretty boring to anyone but me. But we'll get there I love these kinds of posts though because they are very inspiring to me to get to work !

    Another thing I think orpg (and rpgtonight) does well is connecting people. There are established servers that you can connect to and communicate with others. Recently I put a server list into the Connect to Server dialog in MT so that you can see who else is playing. Soon I'll introduce a formal Observer/Lurker role so people can connect and see what's going on.

    Hehe, the creators? No, they're more like the "Ancients" of the Traveller games. The current developers though, yes they're quite active and responsive.

    Hopefully, not for a very long time. I'd rather they were working on the application.
