           Summary: q3map does not support fogclip worldspawn option
           Product: GtkRadiant
           Version: 1.2-nightly
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: tools
        AssignedTo: ttimo@idsoftware.com
        ReportedBy: rfm@redshift.com

The official wolf map mp_trenchtoast uses an option 'fogclip' in the worldspawn
entity. The value is a distance in world units. Although undocumented, it
appears to cause vis volumes beyond the specified distance to not be drawn. The
string 'fogclip' does not appear any of the wolf binaries, but does appear in
the q3map provided with the official wolf mapping tools, so I presume this is
done in the compiler. A map compiled using the q3map from the official tools
does show this cliping behaviour. The same map compiled using 1.2.4 nightly does
not. This option seems similar to a feature proposed by RR2DO2 and ydnar in this
thread http://www.quake3world.com/ubb/Forum6/HTML/019932.html
on the quake3world.com bulliten board.
