Thanks to Iain’s suggestion, we have updated the spring lines, so that it is now a two-step process. To deploy a spring line, first click on a bumper/fender, and then click on the cleat. To remove a spring line, just click on the bumper/fender.
TheBoatDocker has a new look. Please let us know if you like it.
p.s. There are many changes to many pages so if it does not work at first, refresh your browser in two different places: First refresh it at the opening menu page and then refresh it again at the running simulator page.
We have just released a new version of the BoatDocker. Many of the changes are behind the scenes and we believe there are several subtle performance improvements. As always, please let us know how it works for you.
Thanks to J.T.’s comments, we have added a new dock configuration including Mooring Buoys. In addition, we have made some extensive “behind the scenes” changes. So, please, refresh your browser in the menu page, and again at the simulator page, and then test it out for us and send your comments to email@example.com.
Thanks to Captain Dirk who said, [it’s confusing when the boat is at the bottom, because the orientation is is not that of the captain.] Captain Dirk suggested keep the boat fixed and move the dock instead, but that’s a major redesign. So we created a mostly north-facing dock configuration to try to mitigate that problem. As always, let us know what you think.
As you might have noticed, we have slightly modified the old dock configuration. More importantly, we have redesigned the system to rapidly add new dock configurations, which can then be selected from a startup menu.
So, we need your help! Send your dock configuration sketches to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to implement them.
We just added dual fenders so that you can now select: no fenders, port fenders, starboard side fenders, or both fenders. Also, all three spring lines can be deployed simultaneously.
As always, we appreciate your feedback.
