I still don't really understand, Thue.

That screenshot is of a sqaure map.  Each square has 8 neighbours.

So what if it's rotated w.r.t the user?  So the north pole will be in
the top-left as the user sees it, and the southpole in the
bottom-right.  I don't have an issue with that..

I still think we could use a client just like the Civ2 in that
screenshot, without changing any server code.

Populous, for example, used a sqaure map that they rotated 45 degrees
for a nice isometric effect.
