Wrong Sail Configuration warning
Post by iconPost by natto | 2017-12-14 | 02:33:32

The game interface is indicating a wrong sail configuration warning but zezo router and toxcct polars chart indicate different sail. My heading is 130.5, TWA=107.5, TWS=28.7. zezo and polars indicate Code 0, but I think VR wants me to use Staysail. Anyone else getting this discrepancy?
-best, Nat

get out of the race to the lobby, and get back in. the data will be updated properly, and you will be able to see who is right, and who is not...

At the time, I tried that several times but couldn't get the message to clear although eventually it did after clearing the cache and restarting the browser. thanks for the suggestion and thank you for sharing the Polars Chart! Its very helpful.

I think the warnings for wrong sails and for running aground only update once every 5 or 10 minutes. Either that, or there's a lag of 2-3 minutes. I often control sailchanges manually, and it often tells me I made the wrong choice for 2-3 minutes after the change, even though the sail selection screen is telling me my choice is the fastest sail. I usually just ignore it for a few minutes and it goes away.

The grounding one is the one that really sucks... You don't know for sure if you're aground or not until it finally tells you after a couple minutes, and then after you clear your grounding, it continues to tell you that you're aground for 2-3 minutes, even if you go to the home page and re-enter, etc.

It'll probably get fixed eventually, but I doubt it's at the top of their priority list.

The interface also lies to you about TWA, TWS and sail used. Moving the helm may indicate Code 0 if auto sails are selected, but the server may use Staysail in the same time.

Without auto sail you can have the best sail for displayed conditions selected, but the server can see half knot less/more wind and few degrees TWA difference.

But your example is weird. Staysail does not take over below 30 knots. I got two extra penalties myself last night flapping between C0 and Stay at TWA 110 / TWS 30.5
