Describe the bug
This is a second hand bug report so it's probably missing a lot of info, however here goes.

They were having issues with the visual distance, in this example, the slime can't see another monster that should be next to the door
0

then here when the creature moves 1 tile, then you can suddenly see him.
here

Objects like tables or benches should probably not block visual occlusion

Side note, the lack of curved rooms mean more square rooms which exacerbates the problem.

slight improvements with multiple casts but this is a hack really.. needs a better scheme.

We might push this as a way to ease the pain for folks but I'm not stoked about it

Another issue from a user. Let's see if we can recreate this and see if the new hacks help

Perhaps its just the slime that makes it feel different but all counters are blocking sight for me.

And this may be a different issue entirely but to give more info... this might be a sight issue PC view at top of stairs
screenshot 32
(above) PC at top of stairs cannot see terrain to move to. still viewing 1st floor.

Thanks @BlappoSpawn these are very helpful. As you suspected the 'floor not appearing' issue is a separate bug. The next update will probably include my line of sight tweaks so we can see how well or poorly this scene is handled once that is out!
