    Default A hex world WIP (and WIP app) - personal project

    Here's a little in progress project so far:

    Hex proof of concept. Trying out isometric hexes (conveniently the base has a perfect 2:1 aspect ratio in iso!):

    Working out the basic coding to get the hexes displaying

    Multiple terrains - plus infinite panning, and the UI workfow to allow picking multiple terrains

    Roads and rivers. Rivers run down hex edges, roads run through the middle, solves any conflicts nicely!

    Proof of concept for placing locations. This might just work!

    This is really cool! Is this a personal project or a commission? Is it intended for distribution and/or sale at some point?

    Cheers,

    Dear Torstan, what is this Magic about ?
    It reminds me slightly of Settlers of Catan.

    It's a personal project so far. This is all proof of concept - the images are all likely to change (the buildings certainly will).

    The magic is trigonometry, javascript/jquery, and - down the line - a little node+mongo for save/load.

    Here's some more buildings to show the layering of locations:

    Reminds me a lot the graphics used in Civilization V and an old strategy game from the deep 90's which used hex-mapping: imperialism.

    Oh Hell, I played it infinite times... I simply loved it. Torstan`s game looks awesome as it is, if I imagine even more different tiles for each terrain type. WOW, just wow. I would buy an early accessgame on steam with this visuals!.

    @Torstan-Those symbols are insanely good! I love the Dwarven site symbols. Excellent stuff! Wow! Quick question: Do you create these in a vector program, then resize as needed? What program do you use?
