Quick one, from the 'Why haven't I thought of it before?' Department. Reading off the coordinates of a hex-grid map might be made easier by where you place the numbers or letters beside the 'zig-zag row or column.
Here's one I have made up:
|Hex-Grid with Row Coordinates aligned with the|
bottom half of the hexes in the odd columns, and
so with the top half of the even-column hexes.
Mitigates against visual ambiguity.
Just by the way, in the above map L-even (e.g. L2 etc) are not really on the map. But L-odd (L1, L3 etc) is on the map.
|I always like to add an actual picture to these posts, even|
though of doubtful relevance!
