People seemed to like the tilted coordinates for the hex sheet I posted earlier. Below is the specfile I used with
mkhexgridto get the small hexes with the tilted coordinates. I'm not actually sure they are half-inch hexes, I just assumed "100 pixels per inch, therefore make hexes 50 pixels high." They seem to be about right, though.
mkhexgridplaces the coordinates relative to the center of the hex using distance from the center in pixels and direction (bearing) relative to "due east". Bearing 90 degrees is the top of the hex. With half-inch, 50 pixels high hexes, 16 pixel
coord-distanceis a smidge more than an eighth of an inch from the center, and the 150 degree
coord-bearingmeans the coordinate is aligned with the hex face to the left (counter-clockwise) of the top of the hex. To change the tilt of the text itself, I set
coord-tiltto 60 degrees (measured counterclockwise from the horizontal.)
