    Hex or square grid?

    There is an option that lets us automaticaly put a grid on a map, but what about the idea of adding an option so that we could have a hex grid or a square grid?

    That would be useful for campaign level maps, too, I would think.

    I was thinking about that as well because I do most of my airial combat on hex grid maps.
    See you around the table.

    I think that's an excellent idea, because it would mean GMs could have indoor and outdoor maps.

    You could use it for that too, but I was thinking about the other game systems that could be ported to FG that used hexes instead of squares.

    This was brought up long ago (well... long ago in Web Time). I'm pretty sure its on The List as I remember the devs saying they would look into adding it. Not sure how its prioritized though.

    Like GURPS? I'm curious as to what other RPG systems out there use hexes.

    Hex grid was actually implemented some time ago, but it is disabled until we make the script interface support it. In other words, we're working on this.

    Neato, is this something we might see in the next generation of FG?
