Lately I’ve been reading a lot into generating hex grids for my game engine, Civitas. Generating hex grids is usually done in turn-based strategy games, similar to Sid Meier’s Civilization series or Heroes of Might and Magic series of video games.

In a few days my NetBeans SQLiteJDBC plugin will celebrate a whopping 8 years since its initial release (February 15, 2009).
