Map wrapping (Torroid, Sphere, Cylinder, Klein-Bottle)

Post by ssilk » Mon Dec 05, 2016 7:11 pm

This idea is to wrap around the map, so that it has no end and you can "go out at the left side and come in at the right". :)

Another way for construction is a cube:

Moonbase Commander does this, although it's simply tiling the map square repeatedly without bothering with deformations.

The "deformations" are just the mathematical model, which must also be used in Moonbase Commander.

DaveMcW gave me an insight of why Karnaugh mapping is not the right wording here. I admit I didn't read the article about Karnaugh mapping carefully. So I changed the title now. Thanks to Dave. :)

What I meant was that it doesn't bother with any sort of cube-map or other such mapping. No effort is put into making the map have any logic when viewed from a distance. It simply starts again where it ends. The game simply copy+pastes the map in square tiles.
