  • sol and guest suggestions
    Board » General Discussion
    Before I leave SailonLine race and forum a couple of suggestions:

    - get the sol-boat in every race out of the water the moment you open the race for registration.
    At least disable input of steering commands; directly or via dc's in all clients. Disable dc's in general. be it in brainaids dc-editor, autogribloader or etc.
    Very maybe you could just restore sol to the 'community-boat' it once was.

    - Get rid of the guest-account or elevate the guest-account to full operational status.

    - Give only SYC-members the 'right' to contribute to the forum.

    - Construct a document that tells how hmm gets his information of positions of boats;
    how in 'autogribloader' a solgrib is available withoud using brainaids toolbox.
    You do not have to teach programmming in it.. but if information is publicly available then tell how and where to find it.

    Bye.

    I'm trying to understand what 'simplifying' means. If it's deleting poi's that are within a certain margin not leading to a different heading then indicated by the surrounding poi's then this simplifying would just cause less poi's. This is not the same as a decreased ETA. If you then optimize these simplified poi's series I can imagine that this optimization of 'errors' brought in by the simplification again can do unexpected things with ETA.

    Why would you try to 'simplify' JB.
    Could you not first 'optimize' and then 'simplify' the exported csv by yourself?
    deleting same TWA's and or same headings?

    I'm trying to get a better understanding of what a router does. Hence these questions.

    I have the same "happening". I thought it was something new in windows 10. But maybe it's just something new in qtvlm because it only happens after the last update. (Which version i do not know. :( )

    I could not find a good way of handling this annoyance. I keep searching and will post when I found something.

    I did install qtvlm in d:\qt\. works nice.
    So you could install in \race1
    \race2
    \race3 etc.
    If you are short in drive/disk space maybe this is not a good option. About 500 MB needed for every installation.

    If you want to route more races at the same time then you have to consider how much your cpu/processor can take. If your computer gets terribly slow or qtvlm crashes then you know you excecuted one task too much...
    alternatives?:
    - In the same instance of qtvlm you could change the polar of your boat if you would start routing for a new race.... then stop the nmea-proxy for the old race and start the new one.. deleting "old" routes help to avoid confusion around which route is going to where.

    - In the qtvlm folder are only 4 files that change with every routing.
    You could try to put these files in a race1 folder/map.
    You should make a map for every race you want to route.

    If after six hours you return to race1 just copy the files from race1 to their original places and you should be ready to go.
    files to copy
    boatAccReal.dat
    poiReal.dat
    qtVlm.ini
    traceSave.comp

    I did not try this alternative till now.
    But will give it a go when/if I do more races at th same time.

    For use in BWR you can unzip the .bz2 file.
    there you will find the .grb

    'zig-zag' reminds me of BWR suggestions to sail for an hour 20 degrees to the wind... Always it was the router that within the time-limits it calculated the route could not find a tack-solution..

    when I look into the qtvlm course I see many very small zig-zags where the routing comes with twa 144 and 10 minutes later twa -144 and again 10 minutes later twa 144. (gybes here)

    Maybe playing with the time-setting/reckoning will help?

Rio In-Port TIMED Race 2018
Many years ago, when the Volvo Round-The-World yachts were 70 foot long and not restricted much in any other way, SOL organized their own little round-the-cans race outside the harbour of Rio de Janeiro. To start our 2018 series of TIMEDRUNS , we are setting those cans out again for you, and this time they will stay in the water for 20 days for all comers to try as often as they wish to set a best time. We won’t be racing a VO70 though, but the slightly more sedate X35, which, given that the course is some 80nm in length, will mean you will be confronted by a change of forecast or two during your runs. You’ll have to take a view!
