Re: topdown rotations

Your image faces a specific angle instead of to the right, which necessitates adding 180-45=135! Degrees to the angle. (Rotating by a half circle counterclockwise and by an eight clockwise from what would be a 0 degree offset) Got it wasn't sure what orientation the image should be to work without ...

Re: Hex Engine

Those pictures of your game have gotten me to think about how I might make my own hex grid sort of game and what it might be about. Is the project still in development or maybe you're taking a good long break from it? I'm starting to consider making my own game like this :O Yes I've been on a small...

Re: Hex Engine

Looks neat :) Suggestion: Dragging the mouse while holding down the left mouse button should "paint". It's a lot of work to click every individual tile. (i.e. draw by reacting to the mousemoved event, not only in the mouse click event). Edit: Ah, also, I'd make the map much bigger. It's the main pa...
