Hmm. Maybe not fog, but "Stealth mode" would be really great. That would be that you could "dissapear" from anyone more than, say, 15 nm away from you. So that you could try to lose those "shadows" that sometimes appear. This time it's not a prolem for me...

We are trying to set day/night to the position of the boat. If there is a bug I apologize and will try to fix it.

..maybe we should have fog on the screen too... and snow and rain. ;-)
What are these wet things you talk about?
I don't see these when I am sailing IRL. ;^)) especially in the Southern Indian Ocean

If it breaks, it's not strong enough!
My AutoPilot gets to enjoy the daylight setting. Hopefully the night mode will be optional very soon. Thanks for the OTHER advancements. ;)
I am having a hard time seeing the wind directions in the funny night shades. When the wind is very light it is very hard to see them at all.

There seems to be a lot of dissatisfaction aimed at the developers for giving us the day/night mode.

It should be remembered that this feature came about because some players asked for it. The developers did not suck the idea out of thin air.

Give them a break folks, they are doing their best and need all of our support.

Personally I like the night mode better, since its better contrast between the wind arrows and the background. Also you only get dots for boats and don't have to see the traces of the top boats all the time, something that makes the windarrows impossible to see in that area.

So in my opinion night mode is superior to day mode in some aspects.

So thanks for building a great game guys!

Galway Redux TIMED Race 2022
As we last did in 2017, we come to Galway for another TIMED race. Starting from Acaill Bheag, we sail around the coast of County Galway for around 90nm to finish in Galway City. While the weather is generally mild, it gets the occasional severe windstorm which is key to setting a quick time in our Seacart 30s. Feel free to try as much as you want - that is, once you have brought your boat to Galway City first.

Round Britain and Ireland 2022
We invite you to participate in the 1780 nm race according to the clockwise movement around Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands and England. We will have four waters: the North Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea, the North Sea, La Manche Channel. Each of them has its own specific navigation conditions but we will not exchange them here. Watch out for cyclones forming in the vicinity of Iceland and wandering in the south - east. The wind speed at this time of year can reach up to 40 kts and even more. Let's hope that sailing experience and our Sunfast3600 will safely lead us to the finish line.

Tour Down Under 2022
It will be 694nm of killing racing on an amazing route created by SOL'er AGage. In the chat of the first edition of this race, Tyger wrote "Only an Aussie (and a crazy one) with intimate knowledge of these waters could have come up with such a racecourse". Well maybe AGage was a bit crazy, but he was also a genius when he made it, inspired by the great cycling race "Tour Down Under". Instead of bikes we will use fast 60ft Trimarans. So rest well and prepare large amounts of coffee. You will have at least two days without sleep. 😊
