    Removing Fog Of War

    Is there any way that I can remove fog of war from specific nations? I'd like to be able to watch certain nations of my choosing to make the game a little more interesting during periods of waiting without making the whole map visible.

    Well, you can use spies to lift the fog of war, or you can ally them.
    I should go.

    If you are in to cheating you can cheat remove the FOW from individual provinces, but that could get mightly tedious for a big country!

    I'd like to do this without affecting my gameplay (i.e. spies or allies), so yes, I'd cheat to do it. Making this for selected provinces is not really what I had in mind but it'd be better than nothing. How to do this though?

    So there's no way to remove FOW for specific nations through cheats or whatever?

    I'm back with two more questions!

    First off, how do I find out province numbers?

    Second, is there any way to change the duration of Infiltrate Administration? Can I edit any files or something such? I actually like this feature now that I've gotten used to it, but I hate how short the duration is, making it a complete pain to use for permanent FOW removal.

    Search the localisation files.
    e.g.
    Code:
    PROV1;Stockholm;Stockholm;Stockholm;Sztokholm;Estocolmo;Stoccolma;Stockholm;Stockholm;;;;;;x

    You could modify common\spies.txt :
    Code:
    infiltrate_administration = {
    	cost = 20					#costs 20$ ducats  (inflation modified)
    	difficulty = 2		#2/10
    	prestige = -0.01	#lose 1 prestige if discovered..
    	badboy	= 0 			#No badboy increase if discovered.
    	capital = yes			#can only be done in a capital
    	trigger = { 
    		remove_fow = no
    	}
    	effect = {
    		remove_fow = 36	# Remove fog of war for 36 months.
    	}
    	ai_will_do = {
    		factor = 0
    	}
    }

    You could also search through the provinces folder for the province name, or do a search through Windows for the capital city.

    While that will usually work, there are provinces where the filename does not match the province name in-game (sometimes very different).
