    Is there a good overview of Layers and how to use them?

    I went looking for a overview of the new Layers and can't seem to find one.

    I have some existing maps and I want to add background (in this case literally ground) without having it obscure the existing map work.

    Is there a way to get a layer to "be under" of the existing layers?

    I've done very little with FGU so I don't know. But have you looked at the FGU wiki stickied at the top of this forum? A search for layer gave me this page, which might help; https://fantasygroundsunity.atlassia...ages+as+the+GM

    You would need to create a new map then create the background by selecting a background image and then add your map over that. (I think) You won’t be able to edit an existing map unless it was created in FG.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    I have read the Wiki, but is still so new there is a lot not yet covered.

    Making a new image with a background and adding my map on top of that sounds promising, if all my LOS work stays intact.

    I will give it a try. Thanks for the rapid reply folks.

    It's not an overview on layers, but here's a video of me playing with the layers. And yea, if within the same image you can save LOS setting for duplicates. In the video the other ship is a copy and paste horizontally inverted ship. Video is not in english, but you can see some of the layer's uses.
