Kevin suggested we add the appearance of a rudder in the Twin Engine inboard version. It helps during the training process.
Thanks to your suggestions, we have modified the tonnage selection so that heavier boats are now longer and wider. Let us know what you think.
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.
Thanks to Jonathan’s feedback, the user can now select a bow/stern thruster configuration from the startup menu.
Thanks to J.T.’s comments, we have corrected the speedometer for different displacements (tonnage). Let us know how it is working.
Thanks to Renz and others for letting us know that the simulator was not working in the Firefox browser. We think we fixed that problem, so refresh your browser and try again.
Check out the new speedometer. It measures speed in knots. Please let us know if our calibration is correct.
