Hex Grid

A standard hexagonal grid for regulating movement on a Board.  

Sideways: Check this box to make the hexrows of the grid run right-to-left instead of top-to-bottom. (Setting the grid to be sideways switches the meanings of horizontal/vertical and x/y below.)

X,Y offset: The horizontal and vertical position of the center of the first hex of the grid

Hex Height/Width: in pixels from hex center to hex center. If you specify only the height, the width will adjust, or you can create oblong hexes by also specifying a width

Legal Locations: Determines whether pieces can be placed on hex edges or corners, instead of only at hex centers.

Show Grid: If checked, then the grid will be drawn over the Board image using the specified color.
