I created three hexagon masks before I know about the shift value and
the formula and 'width / 4 + 1' match all of them. Your new formula will
only match your default tileset but none of my bigger masks. I might be
really the best to define this value in the tileset.

Agreed. This would also allow smooth zooming not only in two or three
steps. But how would you handle the mask? If you scale the mask as well
the risk to get gaps between tiles increases rapidly.
