Tile size

Quote from: Quatch
As part of the flying minecart physics, did you decide on a tile size?

Assuming gravity works like real world gravity and you can invent a time unit (obviously not linked to the dwarf mode calendar, which moves too fast for this), then a choice has been made.  It wouldn't make any fewer dragons fit in the tile though.  I think for the purposes of the minecarts it turned out to be 2m x 2m x 3m with 10 clicks / second, but it isn't that important or far-ranging in effect.

Where should this best be put in the wiki? (anywhere?)

>>Orius: I plan my forts with some degree of paranoia.  It's kept me somewhat safe.

I don't think it's important enough to be wiki'd, but if you find a place for it I don't think it would be too obstrusive.
