That is definitely diagonal
hmm, well if you open it in hexgrid.lua, it looks like this

im not sure how hexagonal speeds are named, so I just called that "orthogonal".

We can take the square grid as an analogy—orthogonal goes through the centres of the cell borders, while diagonal goes through the vertices. (Alternatively, orthogonal goes perpendicular to a side while diagonal goes parallel to a side.)
Each day is a hidden opportunity, a frozen waterfall that's waiting to be realised, and one that I'll probably be ignoring

This only really applies to small ships but if the trail left behind has a light zigzag on the edges (2 different line slopes) as follows

Code: Select all

x = 25, y = 6, rule = B/S0123456H
20o\$b20o\$2b20o\$3b20o\$4b20o\$5b20o!
they're orthogonal whereas more prominent teeth (3 different line slopes)

Code: Select all

x = 19, y = 23, rule = B/S0123456H
14bo\$13b2o\$12b4o\$11b5o\$10b7o\$9b8o\$8b10o\$7b11o\$6b13o\$5b13o\$4b13o\$3b13o\$
2b13o\$b13o\$13o\$b11o\$b10o\$2b8o\$2b7o\$3b5o\$3b4o\$4b2o\$4bo!
is an indication of it being diagonal.
