    Looks like it now use native libraries. Running on OSX is a problem. I would prefer a cross platform library.

    Hi there. I found your project and was very interesting. From what I've read around, the problem of tiling a sphere with hexagons (not perfectly, because that is impossible) is not trivial. I'm working on a Master of Magic sequel (classic turn-based strategy game from 1994). Can you suggest some reading on how approach this? I'm thinking the 12-pentagon / hexagons theory, but it is regular only at the first iteration (the buckyball), right? How can I generate the iterarions?. Cheers.

    Looks really nice, but I experience the same strange behavior that tankjob does: the globe seems to have significantly more than 360 degrees.

    The globe looks nice but it seems to be about 90 degrees larger than a normal globe both in latitude and longitude. If you travel along the equator, you complete a circle of about 450 degrees. Weird!
