Is this something the game engine really ought to be taking care of, do you think?


Ideally yes, but I don't know what issues a 'fix' might cause: From the graphical side, it basically looks like the individual sprites are zoomed, rather than the unified tile layer, possibly a rounding error with the offsets, since there's nothing smaller than a pixel. Thinking about it, it might have been the issue with my borders in GTK when I had 127 width rather than 126. Perhaps a warning to make sure tile sizes are /even/.

As a sidenote, I just noticed that when using zoom in Qt, nation flags in the nations view (and in the lounge when selecting nations) and the width of the unit display on the subsequently selected units gets enlarged too! Not the units themselves, just the width of the area where the unit is displayed. After returning to normal zoom, nation flags and subsequent unit selections return to normal. However, only the flags also shrink when zoomed out (Again, shouldn't do this).

Also, Qt's unit selection popup (from the sidebar) is weird. It also zooms, though I don't know if that's good or bad, but there are squares where it should show some kind of icons.

Spent the day getting an initial version of stubspace done between other things (Because it's too tedious all at once), it's up on the second post in the thread now. It's rough, but it at least shows the terrain and units.

Some minor aesthetic updates for Hexemplio 2.6.

select.png: centered selection circle to match Amplio2 and improve aesthetics (Will likely cause knock-on changes in ampliohexbig)

This is an update for the grid.png again. The prior version suffered from an improper/failed update locally.

I've raised hrm #762836 for the select.png and grid.png updates, but the grid.png isn't obviously entirely an improvement? The shift of one of the red lines leaves gaps in the outline for me. (With the Gtk2 client. We don't have some sort of client-specific offset bug, do we?)

GriffonSpade, would you consider adding Wahazar's more-visible pollution sprite, or something like it, to Hexemplio? I'm happy to make the change myself, but wanted to give you chance to think about it.
