I agree, and think we both said much the same thing.
I think that tiling is the additional operation that Jason is adding into
his requirements, which is nice but not necessary, and not something
considered in the original model above.
I suspect that only the square tile shape permits tiling in 2D as Jason
would like, and since this is the quincunx model, it is the only one
that can produce a nice 2D tiled map. Can anyone confirm this?
But if one wants to use quincunx for tiling, then even more so, problems
with the mismatch to Freeciv game mechanics and normal intuition need to
be properly addressed.
On the otherhand, if one wants to expand Freeciv to other grid types,
then considering nontiled models is going to become more important. And
the generic codebase will have to support this.
Cheers,
