    Visibility radius is a game mechanic - so lies outside the remit of this as a game agnostic mapper. But GM settable hard and soft FOW should make it easy enough to set this appropriately.

    Here's the version I have in production now:

    One is the GM view (so you can see what is/isn't in FOW), the other is the player view.

    That is so awesome. Will it be possible to remove the hex frames for pure mapmaking purposes? Looks like a well-fitting map with smooth transitions behind the frames. Just wondering.

    I think the GM should be like God, everywhere at the same time. He should be able to see everything clearly.

    But he needs to know what the players can see and what not.

    The GM view of FOW is toggle-able in the app. So you can have it on when you're laying FOW, and off when you're not.

    The hex edges are a feature that will stay. It is, after all, a hex mapper - not a photoshop replacement.

    Looks amazing. Going through the form now
