Hi guys!

Every progress has a price! I like the changes very much but...

Is it my imagionation or does the new interface download more data each time it updates boat positions? I have noticed a threefold increase of data usage at my end.

Three times the data = three times the cost of sailing!

Alternatively a third of the time I can spend on line :(

So, for now, I sail very seldom.

Question: Is this optional or can it be switched off?

There has been no change to the amount of data downloaded by client, except that now the DC list refreshes on startup, and then every 30 minutes, but this is only 1 or 2 Kbytes every hour (at most - even many DCs would be perhps 5Kb), so there is likely something else running that is eating your data up ;-)
I help develop the client interface for the best online ocean racing sim there is... __/)/)_/)__
Thanks for the prompt response. Ill check it out when I get home from work
Thanks for all the help trying to get the new interface working for me.I tried everything and it still wouldn't work, so I gave up and just started using firefox.Logged on with IE this morning by mistake and, like magic the new interface is working on there!!!. :-)
Great news Sally, I still suspect a somthing was storred outside your computer to reduce traffic load. As you seem to be on the Virgin Islands the bandwith could be highly "optimized", over time these stored data get refreshed.
Now you can use Sol on both again, so no need to force a browser choice by Sol :)

I absolutely love the changes you guys have made recently, particularly the no-click zoom amd the new improved polars. Good on you Solgods
The awful wind sound is still there. Do we need this really?
I have always SOL-clients running in the background, we have 1-3 races at a time with different wx-times, so I hear this "gaming indicator" 3 to 9 times a day (always missing a wx at night). Will we have wave sounds in future too?

Please stop it
Hi Bernd,

I agree with you on the sound in a work enviroment so we are certainly looking for a way to switch this on and off in the next version. If there is a way to block the current sound I will get back to you.

Bernd: simply switch off your speakers when you're working hahaha

I do it several times before I round an island, so 154 steps are too many I think.
ALL the way out?? Really? may I ask why...?

Hi Aaron! Sorry for late reply. No, I zoom in from normal overview to full zoom in and back several times before an important move. I have not counted that number of zoom steps, but I can do it if you wish (Done and it is aprox 100-110 steps). Yes, you may ask way. But as I don´t know how to sail on top level and don´t use softs I need some aces in my sleave, so I keep it for my self. ;)

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
