I've done everything to turn of the FOW for my custom map, but it's still there each time I begin. I unchecked Fog (under nature tab) and no change. The fog kills the game for me since visual limit isn't anything like what's in these games. Is there any way to turn it off in my map?

The Fog of War? That would be something in the XML code, I believe. I'm pretty sure you can't turn it off in the map editor.

That helps, but I'm wondering which XML file it would be under?

I believe.... it would be GameConstants. But, if you somehow disable it there, it will disable all fog of war on every map.

That's ok with me because fog in this game sucks! Thanks for the help!

No problem. If it isn't in gameconstants.xml, let me know. I'll try to help you find it if you can't.

I found some lines relating to FOW but I'm not exactly sure what I need to do to disable it?? Seems to have some kind of relation to a trigger. I wish it was easier to do this!

I made an error. A friend of mine says that you would have to increase the fog of war reveal range for all space units if you wanted it to be gone from the map.

Couldn't I just do that for the Starbases so when the game begins, it automatically reveals the region with a station present?

Of course. Then when you have a starbase on the map it would reveal everything...
