    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!):

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

    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?
