I could be wrong about this, i wish i had the game now so i could test it again instead of making mistaken recollections but please just consider what i'm saying for one moment. in my opinion, that faces pic should be a sphere with 6 faces in each longtitude and 6 faces in each latitude. make a square test slab voxel that is 6x6 to test my theory.
