Positively fantastic! I look forward to using this to teach trainees! Thank you for sharing this here!
The prerequisite is a bit difficult : a blank slate area and lots and lots of keys. Very simple and applicable on the field though. I love it.
Used it yesterday:
13 Portals, 27 Fields: awsome technique 🙂
Florian H fantastic result! Well done!
I admire your talent for teaching shown in this video! Very nice didactic movie 🙂 Of course it’s important to teach adepts why some link orders are better than others too, but after they learn the mechanics, algorithms like this one are useful to speed things up.
We used it today, 27 portals, 1 mistake, a bit more than 80 fields: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3VO-gYrpBUFbFhkbVFsc0tNaFU
Just a small question: you start with portal on the hull. Does the algorithm work properly if we would start with an interior portal as number 1?
You should be able to make it work – making a fanfield going clockwise from 1, then re-numbering any exposed/unused portals and going anticlockwise.
Another thing people do is make the anchor an interior portal. Strictly speaking, that’s no longer a max-fields set of layers. However, an agent might have a lot of keys for (say) their office portal, and then they walk around the neighborhood making a series of fan-fields completely surrounding the anchor. The results look quite pretty
