Looking for additional options for hiding and revealing hidden areas for your players? Look no farther! The Darkness Tool provides options for hiding and revealing areas of Permanent Darkness, or Explorable Darkness via Explorer Mode. Check out the Darkness Tool below!
“How do I get started?”
Open any game using Dynamic Lighting and navigate to the Darkness option of the Toolbar. From there, select an option for how to draw, Rectangle or Polygon, and whether you want to Hide Areas or Reveal Areas of Darkness. Once chosen, simply click and move around the map to begin hiding or revealing your areas from your players. If you want to reset all Permanent Darkness drawings on the map, click the Reset Permanent Darkness option on the menu.
"What are the Darkness Tool options?"
Permanent Darkness allows you to set an area of total darkness that Tokens cannot see through, regardless of vision or lighting.
The Darkness tool is basically a "drawing" tool, so selecting this option allows you to "draw" hidden or revealed areas in either a rectangular or polygon shape. To draw with rectangle, simply left-click somewhere on your map and drag - you will see a rectangle begin to form; release your left-click and the shape will finish drawing. To draw with polygon, simply left-click somewhere on your map and a shape will begin to form. Continue to left-click to add corners to that polygonal shape. Simply right-click to finish drawing the shape.
