This thread will be the main thread for the post concerning qtVlm.

Please post here any topic and we will push here also any new release or other info about qtVlm

MapQuest has changed yesterday its policy for tile/map diffusion.

As a consequence qtVlm can't access anymore to their map atm. We are working on a solution.

In order to have a map displayed if you used to have mapQuest:
- go to qtVlm / Configuration / Map
- select either:
* offline maps (VLM) = gshhs
* online VLM maps (gshhs + elevation) to which you can add openSeaMap info

This has no impact on mbTiles or kap config
Christophe - Can you give an ETA for the next update?
Hello,

As maitai will be back from vacations I guess that we will provide a new release next week
Good morning all.

The new qT version displays the boat Polar wrongly.
Please compare the two images got from the SOL client and from qT (with the GPS connected).
Sail Fair.

Yep JB The QT speed polar is 90 degress off.
I've posted this in QT-forum. So let's see what they read first :-)

There was a typo in this function and as a result qtVlm is using twa instead of twd to rotate the polar (only when receiving it through nmea data).

This is fixed and will be in the next release.
I want to be able to run 2 (or more) QtVlm's on the same computer, simultaneously. Anyone knows how to? Maybe a small setup tutorial!

Viva Finn.

Good morning.

Install the second qT in a different directory, ex.:"c:/Program Files/qTVlm2".
Sail Fair.
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.

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
