Fog in KotOR

Hi, I have one question: am I correct in assuming that the fog effect in KotOR (not TSL), is buggy/incomplete?

I was playing around with the SunFogColor, SunFogFar, SunFogNear and SunFogOn entries in ARE files and it seems like the effect is only applied to some objects.

What objects are you referring to exactly? Does it only apply to the area, or are the placeables or something un-fogged?

Well, for example, in Davik's Estate only the doors seem to be affected, as seen here (without modding): http://image.bayimg.com/fanajaadj.jpg

This is what the Shadowlands look like without modding: http://image.bayimg.com/ganadaadj.jpg

And after changing the settings for module tar_m02ab, it looks like this: http://image.bayimg.com/ganaoaadj.jpg
You can see the skybox is fogged black and some parts of the buildings (including doors).

Huh, that's strange. Try going back to the originals and only editing one of the settings at a time.

Hmm... Okay, take all of those settings from the Shadowlands, and apply them to the module.

I'm trippin' balls right now :S lol

The area fog seems to affect only meshes that don't have an envmap texture applied to them. Notice how parts of the Taris buildings that are reflective don't have that sky blue hue to it.

Idk, that's my analysis.

I agree with VP's analysis.

What about the buildings in the distance? That's just a 2D image and I don't see any reflections on there.

EDIT: I just realised that this is something that only affects me , so it's more of a technical support problem (something to do with the fact that I'm running the Mac version). Still, thanks for offering your help!
