Following planned track

Postby Bluesy » Mon Apr 06, 2015 4:45 pm

Can anyone please tell if it is possible to slave my boat to a weather routing track? Also, I have everything matching between VRTool and Virtual Regatta in the TBS race except for the wind direction. There is an 11 degree discrepancy. Any help will be appreciated as I am new to both Virtual Regatta and VRTool.

No way to slave your boat. Interaction has to be by hand.

This wind direction difference is not supposed to be as big as 11 deg.
Probably a configuration problem (time zone, wind shift time, interpolation...).
Check the wiki. http://www.tecepe.com.br/wiki/index.php ... _Game_2014

Thank you for your answer. I have corrected the wind direction differential. I guess slaving an autopilot to the wind track would make it too easy and that's ok with me.
