I am trying to use a hex sprite to create a background. I want to use individual objects because when I click on them they will change sprite. What I am looking for is a way to have it auto generate the hexes on start of layout so I won't have to go through and individually place 100's of them. Pic is a small example of what I am looking to do. I set this small example up by hand not code.
So I managed to eventually figure this out on my own. I was overthinking it way too much. I'll put a picture of what I did to solve it. If anyone can refine it to make it better I am all for suggestion. I'm just happy I finally figured it out.
