Seen a few threads concerning DBA on a square grid.
Anyone tried it on a hexagon grid like C&C Ancients?
The tricky part is the scale.
Hexagons overlap each other across a board and so a unit with a base width of 80 paces (5 x 80 = 400 feet) would require a hexagon with a diameter of slightly more than 92 paces, 462 feet = 400 feet / 0.866 (cos of 30 degrees)
A mile is approximately 13 base widths, or 11.25 hexagons in a straight line.
The circumference of the circle equivalent of a hexagon of 462 feet diameter would be 1257 feet (pi * 462 ft) with each of the hexagons six side having length of 209 feet or almost 1/2 a hexagon.
So a turning movement through 2 sides of the hexagon would be equal to the distance of about 1 hexagon.
No need to change any other movement rates if you assume time per bound increases from 15 minutes to 17 minute (15 / 0.866)
Bow and WWG range would not be effected, but shooting ranges of 5 bw for artillery (5 x 400 ft = 2000 ft) would be measured in 4 hexagons (2000 ft / 462 feet = 4.33 hex).
Assuming I did not make any bone headed math mistakes, any thoughts or comments?
