Tiling No. 1

This is the first successful test of a new tiling program. The program allows me to create custom tile sets, and tilings from the tile set. This is still just a preliminary test of the program, to show that the code generally works, so the colors are not important

This particular tiling is one I tried to draw by hand. The tiling could be extended to fill the plane. It's non-periodic, but the tile set itself is not aperiodic. This is a great improvement on my previous tiling program, which generated only radially symmetric, dart-rhombus tilings. Having the ability to do asymmetric tilings is liberating.

This is my first program with AS3, my first Air program, and my first OOP program. I'm excited.
