Initial sketches of the hive grid include and array of dependent systems for human development and interaction. Solar, prairie, desert, rain forest, oceanic, etc will all be different and change with water availability and human bio systems discovery. Wilderness areas should be added to maximum capacity for water and energy needs, but at the exclusion of consumption for preservation purposes. Another layer on the very bottom should be added for water treatment.
It is not necessary to imply that the hive shape needs to be the land distribution system. The grid can be used to initially find resources for your needs and attempt to form alliances between consumers and producers.
