Default Other Megahex shapes

Will this megahex type ever be considered to print?

It would make "normal roooms" a bit easier to make. I don't think it would skew the measurements too much in the game.

Could be used in instance where there is no alternative. I like it.

Ah, the square megahex! That was a new one to me as well until recently. It is a clever solution for more gridded layouts.

There's already support for it built into Shamat. Just choose the Megahexes layer and then Square. ^_^

Give credit where credit is due -- that's the "Squarehexes" over on Brainiac.com. That guy was a genius!
