I recently came up with a formula for building octagons in minecraft, you take the length of the diagonal wall and you get the length of the straight wall, ie. 55-diagonal, 77-straight. The ones that are perfect are; 5x7, 10x14, 15x24, 20x28, 25x35, 30x42, 35x49. you can figure out the rest yourself with a calculator. You can use this formula for building epic octogons that look cool when used right.

an octagon with a side length of n, will have a diagonal length of n/sqrt(2) blocks

another useful thing to know is that the TOTAL WIDTH from side to side can be given by:
(n/sqrt(2)*2)+n+2

depending on what size area you want to fill, or how long you want the sides, you can get any shape that is pretty much accurate..

Bookmarked! If only there was a way to get this more views - this is the kind of thing that should come in the minecraft building manual. That doesnt exist, but it should! A concise collection of formulas for building - if I were to start that, could I have permission to use this formula (with credit given of course)?
