    What's so special about 60 ft and 120 ft? Why not 5 yards and 15 yards?

    Yeah, but those distances always seemed to be pretty arbitrary to me.

    Well, yeah they are. But Gary Gygax was a feet and inches man.

    And with FGU you can change the units to Yard, or Metres or whatever you want now on the map.

    The measures used, whether arbitrary or not, are beside the point, the case is that I want to put lighting on my map. I want to surprise the player by placing him in a cave or dungeon and hearing him say, oh but I can't see anything!
    And be able to say. really? How about you activate your torch?
    Ah! Didn't buy it? You have two options to face the darkness in the hope of finding a flashlight or torch or go back and buy
    And I hope this happens in February, but my 6th sense says that only in March will we be presented with such a resource

    Yeah it will be fun having players have to remember to use their light sources!

    Timeline who knows but the devs are working on it right now, and its better to have it working perfectly and beyond expectations that to try to mimic those other lesser VTTs.

    I believe it will be the same as the others, but with something "different" to compensate and please.
