comment How can I run a Unity game in a window larger than the desktop resolution?
Scrolling over a bigger-than-screen-res canvas can definitely be done, but it has little to to with the screen size in the build settings.

Don't you mean you need a canvas of that size? It doesn't make a lot of sense to say that you're looking for a software solution to needing more pixels in your screen than you have.

comment Vertical vs horizontal hex grids, pros and cons
Frankly, @JoshPetrie, I don't see why this was closed as primarily opinion-based. I explicitly asked for objective reasons, "in terms of data structures, graphics, gameplay etc, not personal preferences".

comment How to divide hex grid evenly among n players?
@manabreak: I made something to try it out. With a small change to step 2 (reassign by cycling through all players instead of reassigning randomly) it works quite well. I'll try to write it up when I have time.

PS I don't think this problem is ever impossible, the map coloring problem is quite different (for one thing it's the other way around, shapes->colors instead of colors->tile assignments).

comment How to design the AI for a board game like Risk?
@Almo: According to wikipedia (and my experience), missions have been a standard feature in European editions of Risk for ages.

Another minimax (or alpha/beta pruning) limitation, besides the ones mentioned by @Almo; you don't know your opponent's value function because missions are secret.

That's really interesting. I wonder how hard it would be to determine the direction of the probable fronts on random maps.

comment Vertical vs horizontal hex grids, pros and cons
I agree, this is something I was just thinking about too! Although this probably matters more on small maps with a clear directionality (e.g. hexagonal chess, hex-stratego) than on large and complex maps (e.g. Civ 5 or this monster)
