Hexagonal Grids. Hexagonal grids are used in some games but aren’t quite as straightforward or common as square grids.
I’ve been collecting hex grid resources for nearly 20 years, and wrote this guide to the most elegant approaches that lead to the simplest code, largely based on the guides by Charles Fu and Clark Verbrugge. I’ll describe the various ways to make hex grids (I’ve counted 74 so far!)
