  1. Dooh, seems it was me being a DmbAss.............rofl. For this test location was Port Morant 3, points of data from the trader tool was Tiburon, Portillo & Pedro Cay. I am sure everybody clicks onto the fact that the map can be used for chart plotting etc etc etc. But I love the idea that the chart will have some in accuracies that reflect the time period and we can all independently update modify our own charts recording anything we so choose. Flipp
  2. For all those interested I've managed to import and scale Siegfried's map into CAD. Free versions of CAD have all the tools we would wish for. If you want to see a sample of the testing I have been doing this morning, have a look at my profile page. As for the life of me, I cannot seem to get attachments to work for me when replying to threads. Probably me being a DmbAss. But after I have checked with Siegfried I am more than happy to put up the CAD file for everybody to use. Flipp
  3. For all those interested, I managed to import and scale Siegfried's map with his permission this morning into a free version of CAD. I've done a load of testing using the trader tool for distances etc. The only real error is probably the original inaccuracy in the cartography to produce. I must stress there is NO complaint here, as I love the idea that the accuracy of the map probably truly reflects the time period. However for all those interested its a simple thing and with all the tools we wish for as Koltes has already put out in his map tools thread. I cant wait to start using. I am more than happy to share the CAD file we everyone after first checking this is OK with Siegfried. Below is a sample of result testing using 3 point data from the port trader tool. Location Port Morant, points used Tiburon, Portillo, Pedro Cay.


  4. Its funny how people different sides of the globe can come up with exactly the same ideas. Been toying with exactly the same principles ideas as explained and the easiest way to implement all day while working. Koltes you've saved my poor fingers as they've been keyboard bashing all day. Great work, I reckon what you have suggested would go far in satisfying all but the purest navigators out there. Might I add that providing a linear scale to one side of the map that adjusts accordingly with map resolution and via distance results obtained from 3 points already available from the trader tool. It would be fantastic if the proposed divider set idea was able to be fixed one end at one of the distance result locations in turn and then arcs drawn on the map from the divider free end. Thus 3 arcs will intersect or at least box in an approximate area of location. I appreciate you know this etc. Bat that kinda functionality I'd take the greatest pleasure in using and applying as I am sure others would too. Flipp
  5. As a clan we thought due respect should be shown and given to the attacking nation by us at least being there. So the 2 of us from ELITE who were available set out to get there very early due to distance and headwinds. We arrived at location 10 to 15 minutes after the PB start hence we entered the PB as soon as we touched the inner circle for fear of missing the entry window. We were very surprised on the attacking numbers, as we had expected to go down fighting against massive opposition imbalance as a minimum or at least to be bounced by some of the [BLACK] Brethren on approach. However none of the latter made an appearance, we obviously tracked Longdong Latte outside on approach and were expecting him to tag us holding us out of the PB but obviously this did not happen. I would like to state we would of stayed to the bitter end either way and were a little disappointed when you guys escaped, but there is always next time. Fair winds....o7
  6. We had a long sail against the wind to make the PB hence we arrived just in the nick of time. We saw "Longdong Latte" outside and we were surprised he didn't try to tag us as you were already in the PB on your own. But that's how it goes sometimes. With the wind issue you appeared to be on the same tack as us initially on entry, we were averaging 3 knots?
  7. Norf, please pass on my regards. Hope he's keeping those teeth nice and clean I've spent hours polishing the newly made head mount in readiness for our next meeting. ;-))
  8. Good to see, hoping this will keep the committed followers interest up. Especially with some of the other stuff going on and coming to light game wise right now. Looking forward to getting on the dishing out side for a change, when RL allows. Fair winds all. Flipper
