This thread will be the main thread for the post concerning qtVlm.

Please post here any topic and we will push here also any new release or other info about qtVlm

MapQuest has changed yesterday its policy for tile/map diffusion.

As a consequence qtVlm can't access anymore to their map atm. We are working on a solution.

In order to have a map displayed if you used to have mapQuest:
- go to qtVlm / Configuration / Map
- select either:
* offline maps (VLM) = gshhs
* online VLM maps (gshhs + elevation) to which you can add openSeaMap info

This has no impact on mbTiles or kap config
Christophe - Can you give an ETA for the next update?
Hello,

As maitai will be back from vacations I guess that we will provide a new release next week
Good morning all.

The new qT version displays the boat Polar wrongly.
Please compare the two images got from the SOL client and from qT (with the GPS connected).
Sail Fair.

Yep JB The QT speed polar is 90 degress off.
I've posted this in QT-forum. So let's see what they read first :-)

There was a typo in this function and as a result qtVlm is using twa instead of twd to rotate the polar (only when receiving it through nmea data).

This is fixed and will be in the next release.
I want to be able to run 2 (or more) QtVlm's on the same computer, simultaneously. Anyone knows how to? Maybe a small setup tutorial!

Viva Finn.

Good morning.

Install the second qT in a different directory, ex.:"c:/Program Files/qTVlm2".
Sail Fair.
I did install qtvlm in d:\qt\. works nice.
So you could install in \race1
\race2
\race3 etc.
If you are short in drive/disk space maybe this is not a good option. About 500 MB needed for every installation.

If you want to route more races at the same time then you have to consider how much your cpu/processor can take. If your computer gets terribly slow or qtvlm crashes then you know you excecuted one task too much...
alternatives?:
- In the same instance of qtvlm you could change the polar of your boat if you would start routing for a new race.... then stop the nmea-proxy for the old race and start the new one.. deleting "old" routes help to avoid confusion around which route is going to where.

- In the qtvlm folder are only 4 files that change with every routing.
You could try to put these files in a race1 folder/map.
You should make a map for every race you want to route.

If after six hours you return to race1 just copy the files from race1 to their original places and you should be ready to go.
files to copy
boatAccReal.dat
poiReal.dat
qtVlm.ini
traceSave.comp

I did not try this alternative till now.
But will give it a go when/if I do more races at th same time.

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Point Yacht Club welcomes Sailonline to the 2022 running of the classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. This race is the oldest established international sailing event in South Africa and traditionally starts in the bay of Maputo, the old Portuguese colonial capital of Mozambique and finishes in Durban. Last year, and now again this year, the race was/will be from Durban to East London - circa 250nm in native Cape 31 speed machines.

Seoul to Seoul TIMED 2022
In this TIMED race designed by NZL_Scotsman, you'll start at Incheon, sail around 34nm WNW through the Korean DMZ towards the island of Yongmae-do and leave it to port, before returning to Incheon. Luckily, there is no military presence to contend with in this SOL race, though there's still plenty of islands to watch out for and not BBQ on. And once back in Incheon, you can even RE-REGISTER HERE for another attempt. Fastest round trip wins!

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
