This Fog Of War (FoW) example is perfect for a RTS (Real Time Strategy) game, or MOBA, or any top down perspective game!
MAIN feature: is good 60fps performance on large rooms, using surface scaling. Smooth Fog, in 2 customizable layers, not blocky.
Features: 1. uses 2 layers of fog 2. each layer can be customized for 2.1 update speed 2.2 color 2.3 opacity or alpha value 3. Fog erases according to 'sight' radius of individual units
Extra features: 1. Included sprites: 1.1 Nice space background 1.2 Enemy unit 1.3 Friendly unit 1.4 2x FoW light sprites (used to remove Fog over friendly unit) 2. Basic unit movement scripted (select single unit, and move to goal with mouse, LMB to select and RMB to give movement goal) 2.1 basic unit parenting or inheritance setup, so FoW works with one parent unit 2.2 draws selection circle under unit 3. Fog Of War interacts with basic units, and I show you how to allow only the 'friendly' units to open the FoW. 4. Create 'enemy' unit with button press <E>, for debug 5. Create 'friendly' unit with button press <F>, for debug 6. Camera object, setup so view in room follows mouse.
You only need to drop the FoW object in the room, and setup basic unitVARIABLES to allow which units are allowed to clear FoW. For completeness, I have added other objects to demonstrate how this can be done.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.
