With 5x4 one should add a hex every six hexes on the X axis and leap a hex every twelve hexes on the Y axis. Whereas with 8x7 one only adds a hex every ninety seven hexes on the Y axis. David Michael Grouchy II * The boring math ================================================================== The 5x4 hex has an upper right corner with coordinates of (1.5, 2) and the corner clockwise from that at (0, 2.5) 5x4 hex sin 60 * 2.5 = 2.1650 cos 60 * 2.5 = 1.25 that's (1.25, 2.165) instead of the (1.5, 2) looking at the x coordinate 1.5 -1.25 = 0.25 and 1.5 / 0.25 = 6 every 6th hex we'd have to gain a hex on the x. looking at the y coordinate 2 -2.165 = -0.165 and 2 / -0.165 = -12.1212 every 12th hex we'd have to lose a hex on y axis ================================================================== The 8x7 hex has an upper right corner with coordinates of (2, 3.5) and the corner clockwise from that at (0, 4) 8x7 hex sin 60 * 4 = 3.464 cos 60 * 4 = 2.000 that's (2.000, 3.464) instead of (2, 3.5) looking at the x coordinate 2.000 -2 = 0.0 so infinite hexes and still aligned on the x axis. looking at the y coordinate 3.5 -3.464 = 0.036 and 3.5 / 0.036 = 97.222 every 97 hexes we'd have to gain a hex on the y axis. ================================================================== _________________________________________________________________ Connect to the next generation of MSN Messenger http://imagine-msn.com/messenger/launch80/default.aspx?locale=en-us&source=wl mailtagline ===== Post to the entire list by writing to tft@brainiac.com.
