Re: (TFT) Megahex definition

```Ah, well if you're using square megahexes then the missile range increment
would be 2*sqrt(7.5) ~ 5.48.

Square megahexes are a really nice idea.

Well, slightly. But not as much as using 6 would lengthen it. Anyway,
archers are always over-endowed with adjDX so it's probably a good thing to
slap some negatives on them.

"Count the hexes, divide by five, round down, stick a minus sign in front"
is pretty simple, and as accurate a description as anything else I've seen.
It also gives the correct answer for someone standing in the middle of
their megahex and shooting at shortish range, which divide-by-6 doesn't.
All in all I can't see why anyone would want to use 6 rather than 5.
