Can't Place Fog Remover
< >

And yes, I saw Enraged's comment, but it says in the discussions that it is on by default... so I would guess I do not need to add the lines into my .ini ..... I might try to add them although it says its default to ON. Would've prefered a structure though.

How is this Fog Remover supposed to work? I don't see it in my engrams although I didn't disable it in my single player and it doesn't remove the fog when you install the mod (an "automatic" feature, if you will) I would truly like to not have to install another mod for a fog remover since this one said it has one... and I don't want to "cheat" and spawn one into my world.

The spyglass has been bugged for about half a year now despite several revisions of the mod, use super spyglas instead and block the engram for this one.

Say Blitz, not meaning to push you or anything, but is there any update on the bugs with the spyglass at all?

Just asking because glitches with it nearly got me killed last night in the Ragnarok swamp - I was taming an achatina and the 'Name Your Creature' screen came up while I was looking through the glass, freezing up my interface. Then I pressed ESC to try and cancel it, and that froze my controls completely, meaning I had to kill the game process in the Task Manager and log back into the server. Woke up to find myself surrounded by snakes and in the mouth of a kapro.

As I say, don't wanna rush you or anything, but these bugs are pretty big issues sometimes :(

A fog remover removes fog, so in that respect its similar, yes, they have just one task.
Do they work is another question, sometimes they do, sometimes they don't.
Not all work on all servers or all maps, nor for each user logged in, this is from experience, not just my opinion.
Just try for your situation and good luck!

Is the fog remover from this mod similar to the fog remover from mod 1148802682 ?

Nevermind the fog remover! I just noticed it was turned into an ini option!

Great to see this being worked on again!

I see an issue with the spyglass where if I open my inventory while holding it my mouse disappears until I click somewhere. I'm also unable to learn/craft or spawn the fog remover, & unable to spawn the lasso, but it shows up learn/craft.

Anyone knows why this mod isn't working for our linux server?
