I can’t decide if I like how the fog of war is displayed or not. I think it looks great, and I appreciate how you can make out mountains and forests through the fog even in tiles you haven’t gotten close enough to reveal. It makes it feel a bit like those are well-known landmarks, like how I know where some of the major mountains, forests, and deserts in the world are even though I’ve never been to them personally.
On the other hand, I had one unrevealed tile on the goblin island that contained the only village big enough to recruit from. I swore I had that whole island revealed and was about to go to the discord and ask if it was possible to spawn an island without a major city from the major faction when I decided to go around once more. I had every tile around that one revealed and so it certainly didn’t look like I’d missed anything. A more traditional fog of war and I would know exactly which tiles I hadn’t scouted.
I still think I prefer it the way it is, but dang that one tile is annoying me at the moment!
