...since I'm working on retrofitting a vector-based movement system to an old FASA game (Interceptor) I've realized a few traits I didn't realize before until I tested them via brute-force to verify things to myself.
When you sum things up in a vector-movement system as applied to a hex grid, there's two basic mergers that let you quickly simplify things down to a single pair of vectors that will always be on neighboring sides of the movement hex. I.E. A single fixed line on a 360-degree circle, common sense but neat on how things simplify down.
First, a hex grid to work with:
__ __/#W\__ /#A\__/#E\ \__/ \__/ /#Z\__/#D\ \__/#X\__/ \__/
Yes, I'm being a bit lazy on the labelling, deal. Long story short:
Yes, it's minor, but I felt like sharing. Oh, and interceptor critical-hit sheets if you want good-quality scans, and the live WIP for the by-hand re-building I'm making of the sheets into pure PostScript to be made into PDF's eventually.Leave a comment
