Huh, are you actually changing the tiles to reveal the map? Or is it just a lighting thing? Kind of had me curious when I saw the sudden FPS drops, like a lot of calculations are going on behind the scenes.

Hi! The fps drops are probably because of the screen recorder. While I'm playing it stays at 60 fps.
No, I'm not changing tiles. The plugin creates a dark sprite for each tile(that are marked with a region), and when the player is getting close, the sprite hides.

Ah that's an interesting way to do it. You know you could probably achieve a much more rounded natural effect with a lighting plugin and just turning on lights if the player is within a certain distance of them. But turning them off again if they're off the screen. That's basically what I do with my game, except I despawn/spawn them based on the player's position.

I know what you are talking about, but this plugin is not about a light plugin. It's a try to replicate something like Fatal Labyrinth
The thing with this system is really revealing spots and leave them revealed after the player walks in there. The distance(in tiles) can be adjusted by variables.

I think a rounded effect can apply if it is not related by tile per tile. I have tried it here and it looks weird, at least for revealing instantly. But when I turn to reveal gradually, it looks better. But it really gets better if it is not tile by tile.

Oh no. That moment when you try to fix something you modified in your game, like, a year ago but didn't want to fix then, and you now have no idea what you even did. Me right now, trying to figure out why my gold window is over stretched?

Oh my gosh. Thank you, Macy's! Thank you so much! You have made me very happy!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! What are you thankful for? I'm thankful that I no longer have PTSD, and that I get to enjoy a good meal with my mom and stepdad! It might not be the same as before COVID, but at least I still get to enjoy the holiday!
