The current method of revealing parts of a Smart Image can sometimes be quite slow.

I would like to be able to draw a polygon (simply by clicking several times on the map) and when the polygon is closed (click on the first point again), then the enclosed area is immediately revealed.

This would make it a LOT quicker to reveal an entire square room or other just-exposed area of the map.

Or doubleclick on the last point and then it draws a line to the first and closes it itself.

Would be sweet. Also the idea I read somewhere of being able pre-define reveal areas and reveal them with a single click. Would be great for dungeon rooms

Remember it is already possible to draw rectangles and reveal them - you are not limited to the brushes.

Wow, that particular reveal feature slipped me by! It would have helped a lot for the 2 year campaign I've just finished!

To be honest I only discovered it by chance and accident :-)

I guess the reveal rectangle means my request here is a lot lower in my priority list now :-)

I use the rectangle all the time (where appropriate) but would still love the idea of predefined areas pr at least polygon reveal. Dungeons rooms are not always straight rectangles :-)
