But a infinite surface is not equals to a sphere!!!
this is concept about i was speaking.

Sorry i was working with childrens from 6 y to 25 y at ULB. personly i
see perssone > 18y thincs persones <18 are a litle stupid. that is not
rigth.
i am learned complex physics concepts to normal childrens of 8y in
Bruxels! Never underestimate childrens!
Whe you use bad math in your code this not work then you are forced to
use the right math.
if you use bad math concept in map making you go to some result.

this is a problem of clossed surface. you no speak about a infinite
surface but about a clossed one. in a clossed one we see it as a
periodic shape. this is a math mirage! this is a finite but clossed
space!!!!!!!!!
this is not equal to a infinite space.

Yes this can help to undestand the quincuntial. but not to subtitue
quincuntial by torus.

i undestand you but i thincks we need not underestimate all players.
quincuntial is no so easy but is a alternate nosodifficult. if we
organise a contest in the meta server with quincuntial and no
quincuntial maps to become the "Master of Earth"(some combined ranking
in 2 maps) i am sure a big number of player go undestand this. i am make
it some times and this work fine the most important problem was my
server was no rankings and my first scenario is a litle too big. The
clients was standar 1.14 ones, with not reverse canvas and my server was
a hacked 1.14 server.
After this nice result i begin the hard work to really make good servers
and client, with good generators. But the singularities are there and we
need life with its.

yes there are singularities, yes that is right. But in a classic topo
all N edge and all S edge is singular. this is easy but is very bad.
this edge is no closed!! and a real sphere is a closed surface. you
thinck it is normal. but normal is not good. normal is only normal.
torus are clossed but this is not a spherelike topo, torus is a 1Toru
topo not a 0Torus topo.
sorry but 0 != 1. ask a 11 childrens if hi like play tenis with a donuts
and you go see the children differentiate a 0Torus from a 1Torus.

Arg... but this broken good maping. in good maping we can assept some
local singularities in some point only. your proposal is simplest not
good one. exept is you make a mirroroffset topo. this way you make 2
Earth maps in a torus not only one!!. that is wrong too. that is not a
torus from the point of view of a unit.
(a mirror wraps is the some as a no wrap(then is legal) exept if it is
combined with a offset wrap, this alow to make Earth maps with out
singularyties, but there are nor really the best topologie)
you need mirroroffset wrap in NS and simplet Wrap EW

this make near classic maps and clossed surface. but poles are completly
crazy!!! with this faketorussphere. we can go from usatoURSS via N
pole but we can not go from Europa to URSS. (yes i know! URSS is no
more)
this is not more a point of distortion but a point of topologie. that is
not a sphere!

i make all is posible to resolve the problems. but this problems is like
the deadproblems of life.
dead is unsuitable for life play. but i can not solve this problem.
Quincuntial is the best sphere like topo. but this topo has concetrate
the sphere curbature in 4 points. a can't solve this.
assept quincuntial is a nice topo is like assept life is nice. we can't
life all the time afraid about dead. we can't stop make a nice topo
beacause litles singularities.

I work in make i client side to make easy to undestand singularities.
In generated maps 2 of 4 singularities can be placed in poles some
times, or palced in oceans this is the best solution possible.
