Drawing hex maps VB.Net
« on: December 11, 2012, 02:31:40 PM »
Hi all, just for fun I've been teaching myself VB.Net recently.  I'm in the process of creating myself a play-aid for one of my board games and I'd like to create a hex map.  Can anyone provide some tips or direct me to some good resources?

I've not been playing Aurora much but I have been reading some of the AARs to all of you posting AARs - Keep it up I've been enjoying them  :)

Code is in C#, but looks easy enough to convert.

You want hard, try converting XNA C# code to VB. That is guaranteed to give you a headache.

fecking XACT.

Actually, should ask. Top down or isometric?

That link is for top-down.
