[1.09.06] "Partial Fog of War" allows to see owner of any hex.

Post by S1man »

If you use "Partial Fog of War" setting upon game creation then you can see any hex in the world owning regime by clicking on hex and consulting the bottom left popup info, where you can see both flag and name of a regime. This is probably not intended and should be replaced with "Unknown Regime" for such case.

I can't reproduce this, but even if it worked this way it would be working as intended. You can already see all regime borders using the strategic map from the button in the top right in the Partial FOW mode, and the manual has this to say:
Partial FOW
You’ll be able to inspect the Planet map during generation. Once you enter
game you’ll retain some real-time information on the Hexes of the Planet.
Notably the borders of all Regimes. Also comparative statistics will be
available, but otherwise the FOW is still applied.
However, there is a bug with FOW behavior: The information displayed in the bottom right hex info panel appears to be the reverse of the intended between the 'Partial FOW' and 'Map known, otherwise complete FOW' modes. I just posted a bug report about it here.

OK I think I actually mistyped the option: I specifically had this issue not with "Partial FOW" but with "Map known, otherwise complete", that I somehow labeled wrong.
