Big discrepancy between future wind under cursor and navigation point
Post by iconPost by BooBill | 2020-07-08 | 13:43:14

Currently in the Arctique, if you click a navigation point 6h out and keep the cursor there, you get different winds in the navigation and the popup under the cursor.

At 2140 CET today, navigation point in router says winds 12.7kts at 266. Clicking that point to switch winds to 6hrs ahead, and hovering cursor over point indicates winds 11.44kts at 262.8. That's only 10mins off exactly 6h shift, so shouldn't be an interpolation thing.

Exact point I'm looking at is 58°37'30"N - 24°23'26"W

Cvetan will correct me if I'm wrong, but the wind display is not interpolated in time. It only adjusts in 3hour steps (for the first 10days, then 12 hour steps for the remaining 6 days of the forecast range).

The shift is at 21h UTC, which is 23h CEST, so you are looking in one hour difference.

There are mandatory dots on the thick lines, and clicking them should always return the same data. The other point is the third isochrone, but there may not be a dot on it.

Made the dark lines appear every 3 hours. That code is leftover from the time when the game weather was updated twice/daily.

Does make more sense now or it just clutters the chart?

Sorry about that, I guess I'd never noticed that it didn't interpolate between 3hr points before.

Personally, I kind of liked it where the bold lines represented weather updates. Or at least something to distinguish the next update. Sort of delineate the line between certain weather in the game and uncertain.
