Forums: Index > Development > Icosahedral projection option for hexmaps

An interesting option to have for board geometry for hexagonal tilesets would be an icosahedral projection. The map would consist of 20 equilateral triangles of hexes. This would represent a sphere better than a straight east-west wraparound. 16:46, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

I have worked on elaborating this idea on the Sphere page. If you are combining hexagon tiling with an icosahedron, you will create pentagons also. This will create a buckyball. However, another option is to tile the icosahedron with diamonds. This will let every tile be the same shape and us existing tilesets.
