I was just walking back from the laundry room and I looked up above the roof line of the apartment building and noticed a nice light gray “height fog” in the background. Living around 5 miles from the beach, overcast/foggy weather is more common than not.

I have always liked some height/distance fog in most levels as it gives the map a little more depth and atmosphere. Having lived “near” the beach most of my life, it makes me wonder if there is a connection? I tend to like industrial and “old wold” maps, both which are not common in Orange County (southern California).

Do you think your real life surroundings influence your likes/dislikes in the maps you build or play?
