Does the 5,000 block minimum distance between outposts have to satisfied along a single axis?

  1. In junior high, we learn that a^2 + b^2 = c^2. Can this be applied to the 5,000 block minimum distance between outposts in the frontier (and also the 3,000 block minimum between visually established bases)? For example, if two bases are 4,000 blocks apart east/west and 4,000 blocks apart north/south, they obviously don't satisfy the requirement on either axis, but they are still ultimately over 5.5k blocks apart. Does this work (including for the 3,000 block requirement)?

  2. This is a good Baradar67 question...

  3. I'd assume so, but you might be better off PMing a senior staff about it.
