# Get range of hexagon based on specified center

I have this method to get the cells inside a given N range:

public function getRadius($range,$center) {
// $center[0] = X or Q //$center[1] = Y or R
$cell = array(); for ($dx = -$range;$dx <= $range;$dx++)
{
for ($dy = max(-$range, -$dx -$range); $dy <= min($range, -$dx +$range); $dy++) {$ddy = $dy +$center[0];
$ddx =$dx + $center[1];$cell[] = array($ddx,$ddy);
}
}
return $cell; }  But it returns bad coordinates by adding the offset on the delta X and delta Y. • Can you define in more detail what makes the coordinates you get as output "bad" and what "good" coordinates would look like? Concrete test cases with expected outputs can often help remove ambiguity in questions like these.

$points = array(array($x,$y)); for($i=1;$i<=$range;$i++) {$curp = array($x,$y);
for($j=1;$j<=$i;$j++) {
$p =$this->hexagon->moveTo("N",$curp[0],$curp[1]);
$points[] =$p;
$curp =$p;
}
for($j=1;$j<=$i;$j++) {
$p =$this->hexagon->moveTo("SE",$curp[0],$curp[1]);
$points[] =$p;
$curp =$p;
}
for($j=1;$j<=$i;$j++) {
$p =$this->hexagon->moveTo("S",$curp[0],$curp[1]);
$points[] =$p;
$curp =$p;
}
for($j=1;$j<=$i;$j++) {
$p =$this->hexagon->moveTo("SO",$curp[0],$curp[1]);
$points[] =$p;
$curp =$p;
}
for($j=1;$j<=$i;$j++) {
$p =$this->hexagon->moveTo("NO",$curp[0],$curp[1]);
$points[] =$p;
$curp =$p;
}
for($j=1;$j<=$i;$j++) {
$p =$this->hexagon->moveTo("N",$curp[0],$curp[1]);
$points[] =$p;
$curp =$p;
}
for($j=1;$j<=$i;$j++) {
$p =$this->hexagon->moveTo("NE",$curp[0],$curp[1]);
$points[] =$p;
$curp =$p;
}
}
return \$points;
}
