General Discussion / Re: The speed limit for the Suez Canal?

The speed limit in the Suez canal is about 8 kts. But you could have googled that  ;)

General Discussion / Re: Refueling
« on: December 22, 2016, 01:38:14 pm »
Your ship will refuel if it is docked. It takes 4 hours to fill up the tanks.

Your ship will also refuel if it is at anchor. However, you can only anchor in shallow waters close to shore so make sure you don't run out in the middle of the ocean.
When on anchor you need to wait 4 hours before a refuel ship reaches you and another 4 hours to fill up te tanks.

So, when anchored overnight you should find your ship refueled the next morning.

General Discussion / Re: CPU - Cooking

It be interesting to see the chrome numbers. It is claimed Chrome uses a lot of CPU power. But the game is absolutely hammering the CPU. This is because it uses the "requestAnimationFrame" API call. This call allows a computer to complete drawing a frame in the browser and then executes the next simulation cycle. Faster CPU's will run at a higher frame rate but capped at 60 fps.

Code is not optimized for a specific browser although my principal browser on which I develop is Chrome.

With Chrome you may want to clear the cache and cookies.

"Anchor" menu has been replaced with "Continue" because now all ships you have in the game, remain in the game and not just the at anchor ships.

Well, the multi player mode is designed to show all other ships that are underway. Even ships from players that are on autohelm with it's owner vast asleep or at work are shown.
If this isn't the case then it's either quiet or there is a technical problem.

Right now I count 7 cruise ships in action.

Tip:  Switch to map mode and zoom out. All ships are shown as icons.

I think that is a great idea. You can now toggle collision detection on or off per ship by pressing the "L" key.

I have no answer. All I can tell you is that you can login on as many devices as you wish. I do it all the time.

All I can suggest is that you fully clear the browsers cache


Clear the history from the "beginning of time"

(Make sure you only clear cookies and cached files)

Is this still an issue?

I'd chance the locks on the liquor cabinet anyway.

But yeah, I really need offline land water detection. It's kinda complex and requires time which I don't have at the moment.

Where exactly do you get stuck? I need coordinates.

Correct. I don't support Apple because Apple doesn't allow 100% HTML 5 compliant browsers.

I managed to extract a 4800px image of qm2 but it will need some processing to get rid of the 3D model look.

Nice, that is fantastic and very welcome feedback. Can you elaborate on the steering controls? Which ship are you referring to?

So, as for rate of turn, are you saying that once a rate of turn is established , it keeps going for longer after the steering input is set to neutral?

Possibly you can help me by taking high quality top down photos on controls on your control panel. I can edit these and turn them into interactive controls. I have been hoping for a while to get to talk to actual officers as I have no experience with large ships at all.

Hey, its not a bad top down picture but not great either. It looks like its a reconstructed top down image of 3D photogrametry.

At what location did you find it? Maybe I can extract a better image from it.

Yeah, propose me a few good starting locations.
