Change side of the map for localisation of the boat
Post by iconPost by nicolasdb | 2016-12-12 | 14:16:55

Hi zezo, thx a lot for your work !

Is it possible to be located on the left side of the map for planning the route ?

For exemple, for people that has pass Australia, we have to see the Horn for routing strategy.
For now we cannot do that because entering coordinates or using the plugin we are always render on the right side of the map.

You can still place a destination point at Cape Horn even if it's on the other side of the chart.

But you have a point. A maxi trimaran can make a passage from NZ to the Cape in less than 10 days.

I'll check if I can extend the chart to +/- 360 instead of 180, but it may not be trivial. That's code I've written years ago with a lot of magic in it ;-)

I had seen that, but it was not as practical as a map shift, thx for the update

Done, the right side of the map shows now the Horn, thx

Yep. I changed a magic number from 270 to 360 in one place ;-)

Let's hope it does not have unexpected side effects.

BTW you can use the 'Center chart' (formerly known as 'Locate boat') function in the right mouse menu if you lose your boat (off-screen or on the other side of the (flat) earth ;)
