    Is there any way to attach LOS to "floor assets"?

    As title says, can i attach LOS to assets so everytime i put them, the line of sight comes with it to the map?

    Yes, but it is currently done with an external tool. The tiles from Shockbolt's GMW Kit 1 should already be preset - as an example.

    Check this if you haven't already:

    Thats awesome. Will that tool be released at some point or the functionality rolled into FGU?

    We will probably install it and place it in a tools directory or possibly make it available for download here.

    The short gist is to do this:
    1. Start a new clean campaign just for this purpose
    2. Drag an asset over to the images & maps window so it will create a new image record
    3. Don't resize anything, move it or anything like that
    4. Define the LOS for the asset

    This will create entries in the campaign's db.xml file that includes all the data we need. We then run a program that reads from that xml file and extracts the LOS data for each individual image. Those are named to match and placed next to the image -- such as wall_stone_SE.jpg will have a file called wall_stone_SE.xml.

    That would be great. Looking forward to it. I know there are tileset developers who would love to get started on converting their stuff.
