Hex Hills 10mm (10 meter)
The Modular Hex Hills series is a set of interlocking 32mm (1 1/4") Hex Risers meant to replicate elevation changes for gaming. They are designed to replicate 1:1000 scale terrain imagining hexes at 30 meters and elevation changes at every 10 meter. The files are provided in original Pepakura format for ease of rescaling to match existing hex maps sizes. Provided are three formats: 1, 3 and 7-hex hills, each at 1, 2, 3, and 4 level change variants. A transition riser is also included as well as joining components to help keep hill structures stable during play.
In the files are included full instructions and high-resolution maps, with instructions on how to incorporate your own map modification files into the printable file. The files are presented in a compressed form, using .zip compression routines. An appropriate unpacking utility will be required to access them. Some files inside of the package are in .pdf format and will require a viewer capable of opening and printing them in order for them to be used to their original intent. In order to modify the texture files, an image editor capable of editing .jpg files will be required.
The main model file is supplied in .pdo format, which requires a working copy of the shareware software Pepakura Designer © 2012 Tama Software. The software is available at their site: http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/ and is free to download and use. A licence key is not required in order to print or modify textures. Pages are laid out to support Letter format, of 8.5” x 11” (21.59 cm x 27.94 cm). While it is possible they may be printed on A4, some modification to the layout may be required. Note that to create the models to the stated scale, no resizing through printing should be done.
