Leg 8
Post by iconPost by zezo | 2009-06-06 | 16:35:46

Some considerations about Leg 8:

The optimizer will need some manual assistance for this leg.

The current algorithm is not very good when going in directions opposite to the great circle route, as is the case with the start, so you need few destination points along the way.

Navigating the channels will also require some human intervention. The map is not the same as in the game itself, and it's possible to run on ground, so take care and use all available sources.

The choice is also somehow limited in the channels, and the current forecast is quite unstable but the site should still give some useful short-term advice.

hello, the route is ok or wrong, we have to go South at first.

The optimizer can not sail in directions opposite to the Great Circle route, so you need to set some short-term goals, at least in the beginning.

And the land seems to differ a lot between the game and the site, so it won't be as useful in the last legs as in the middle of the Atlantic, but that's unavoidable with the unknown VORG land masses.

Cvetan - You did not have to test this to prove that you were right ;)
