Hi all,

I made a fog of war plugin for Impact. It was originally part of my roguelike game, but I decided to extract the code and share it with the community. I'd love some feedback.

You can see it in action here:

First of all: that game itself is effing awesome! I caught myself playing it for like 15 minutes, waiting for story or something to start or a key or specific level or something.

As for the library, seems great and I think I might throw it in my RPG! :D

I like this, it is a good starting point for RTS development/MOBA's.

I wonder how hard it would be to add in damping to make it smooth?

The plugin simply draws rectangles, so smoothing would take a little effort. One possible method would be to create a tilesheet of "soft" corners and edges. And you'd have to come up with some algorithm that determines which tile type is appropriate in which position...
