Board Layout Suggestion: Visible Coordinates

Post by MystWalker » 13 July 2021, 18:52

It would be really helpful to have the coordinates labeled on the board in BGA. Also having the rows and columns be marked differently with numbers and letters would make finding specific spaces and conversing about the game much easier.
Something like the example below would be wonderful! :D

How do we go about making suggestions to the dev team?

YES, but as BGA implementation turns the hex grid by 60° counter-clockwise with respect to the most common arrangement:
  • letters should go on the sides, with 'A' at the bottom and 'K' at the top
  • numbers should go on the top (and bottom) edges 1 to 11 left to right
(and similarly for other sizes).

Excellent point, Miwarre. It will be important to include these details in an proposal we make. Perhaps rotating the board to a more conventional orientation would be another good suggestion.

Does anyone know how to go about making an official request? Is it as simple as making a bug report here, or is there more to it?
