  • <halfwayDist> The distance, beyond the startDist, at which the scene will be 50% fogged.
  • <red> The red component of the fog as a value between 0.0 and 1.0
  • <green> The green component of the fog as a value between 0.0 and 1.0

Implementation in Levels

  • To add SetExpFog to your level open up your Map GSC and anywhere after maps\mp\_load::main() add this:
setExpFog(100, 1000, 0.4, 0.425, 0.44, 0.0);
