Map Decorations



With this feature, you can set props, brushes, shapes, and text as a 'map decoration'.  This will place it above all objects including 'above wall' objects and tokens allowing you to detail and decorate your whatever needs you have.

Object Option:
Map Decoration - Enables/Disables this feature for the selected object.  Enabling this feature will disable the option 'above walls' as a map decoration appears above all objects.

Map decoration properties
Objects with active map decoration flag will:
  1. always be rendered on top
  2. are not affected by dynamic lighting (ambient, light sources & shadows)
  3. are not being displayed in player views
  4. you can toggle their visibility on export via the export view options

Export Option:
Show Map Decorations - This new export feature allows you quickly hide or show map decorations so you don't have to manually hide/unhide them before making a second export of your map.




Stage Option:
Darken Stage - To allow for a more unique decorative maps, we have added a long requested option to turn off the darkening of a stage.  This will allow you further customization and allow for the creation of decoration layers, or just maps shown from a higher level without the darkening aspect.  This feature is available when 'show stage' is disabled, and can be turned on or off for each level to obtain the desired affect.
