Anybody wanting the PDF just shout and I’ll send it. I needed to clean up and reduce space on the forum

 

This is another basic [ELITE] Guide to help you navigate around the Caribbean.

 Let me know what you think

Is it really that hard ... to actually DEVELOP a working map? do we really need third party programs to, first comunicate, then to navigate on a GAME. This is why we are 250 ppl online with their alts. FFS!!!

Someday I'll see the community guides on github.

I'm not an expert on GIT and Markdown Language, but this will be a good reason to study them.

Great little guide that touches on a number of navigation techniques and explains some details of a couple user made maps.

Thanks for taking the time to put this together, and emphasizing that navigation is pretty darn easy.

I get a lot of enjoyment from the user made maps that compliment this game.  I don't understand why some people are angry that the Devs have not duplicated these maps.  I fail to see why Ctrl Alt is a bad key combination but M is okay.

Thanks again for your effort.

I really should have included this comment in my previous post.

Timing is very important in navigating.  I like to pre-plan my route and determine the time I will sail on each leg of the journey.  Not only is this interesting and satisfying but the prep enables me to spend more time scanning for enemy.  As you mentioned it is very important to avoid distractions at sea, and maintain vigilance. 

There are a lot of ways to determine the timings of a journey; measuring on a map and doing your own calculations,  or using any number of the user made maps.  I find that the most accurate map for timings is Prater's https://namap.neocities.org/interactiveMap.html .  I like to use https://na-map.netlify.com/ to determine the wind directions and then use the direction with Prater's.  Along with an accurate number for my own ship's OW top speed I can arrive within a few seconds of when I've planned.  For those who try it remember that, if you are fishing, your speed changes as the hold fills with weight.

For very quick time estimates;  https://na-map.netlify.com/ is great  - and also  http://burningsail.com/

Thanks again Norfolk for the efforts.

Admiral Norfolk,

I just found this and have not yet gotten a chance to fully read it and learn it. Seadog 3rd Class Wade is growling and scolding me under his breath, insolent dog, for not finding this earlier. It's great, Thanks a lot. it's going to be a great help. Now all I have to do is rebuild my ageing computer. HAHAHA, always something to do.

Fair sailing.
