  1. For me, replay and movement tracks are quite important, and visually is a blast, or least more than formations. From my point of view, I can do formations thanks to waypoints and personal effort, but I'won`t do replay if that function is deleted. Anyway, Are there any plans for formations, to code the program to allow ships to try to maintain stations, or will always be a turn the formation as a complete unit, so that outer and inner units within the formation will teleport to the new position when turning? By the way, is it possible to do NTDS symbols a bit thick (like janes fleet command, or command naval operations), right now they are too thin, and difficult to view against a blue water background. Also if possible, the background of numbers (such as range, bearing) is about 50% transparency, and when there are a few units closely, A lot of zoom is needed to separate the numbers (distances, degrees, names), I belive a complete flat color will be best as background, at least the forward unit numbers will be visible without zooming. Any way, it is your program, and it will be great game whatever you do.
  2. Kevin, Thank you very much, you're great.
  3. WoW!!!! 2.1 is a beast. Good Work!!
  4. Is Simplot 2.1 available for download anywhre? or when will it be updated in the download section? Thank You
  5. Kevin, this is a request, Can be added a 1 sec time advance, I know it is not necessary but I've been thinking about it, and the accuracy and possibilities it brings to the program. Thank You. Will we see an updated Simplot when H5 is released?
  6. Map Battle Santiago Cuba 1898.zip This is the scenario + map
  7. Kevin, as always great work. One question, Is there any way to change the color palette as in previous editions?, the map i'm using is clear blue, and I need to change the test (name, bearing, speed) to black or a darker color. Thank you
  8. Thank You for the new uploaded version...I will check it next weekend.
  9. It works perfect. All postions issues with units are solved...thank you kevin....you're great
  10. Happy birthday kevin, Thank you for looking after this "no decimal" problem. I Tried to create new units at x64 scale. 1.- if i create a new aircraft unit,and introduce manually a position, the program avoid reading the decimal part (remenber at x64 scale) 2.-If I create a new aircraft unit and set a bearing and range from another unit, and hit the calculate button, the new unit is at the correct position (the program reads the decimal part, x64scale). very curious indeed. keep on the good work.
  11. Hi,thanks for the updates. I'm still having problems when a scenario is loaded- When I load a scenario where the position of the units have decimals, the program doesn't read that decimals, and position the units with flat numbers. (see attachet images and scenario)- Right clicking on any position of the map with shows the axis number without decimals(is this working as intended?) when I play, units move normal (taking into account decimals to calculate position) and saving a game is correct (mantain the decimal part of the number in the txt file),it is just when loading/open when it stop to reads decimal. In the same manner, If I try to createa new unit while playing, and the position of the unit includes a decimal part, the the program avoid reading them, and place it in a position without decimal. Changing comas with dots makes no difference, It doesn't read anything of the decimal part. Thank you for your time and patience. prueba_turn_010003_00.txt
  12. I tried to play a full scen, and this are the issues find so far: 1.-Saved scenarios (single player) while range circles are visible, are unable to re-open. Solution: remember to deselect range circle with F9 menu, or open the scenario with an editor and change "true" values to "false". 2.- I cannot select range circles with decimal nautical miles, neither with coma "16,2", or with dots "16.2" 3.- the big one: The attached scenario is loaded, do a few 15 sec turn (press next movement and Next turn) and saved the game (single player). When reopened with simplot units are not in the place where the scenario says they sould be. It's like if the program cannot read the numbers behind the comas. in the attached image polnocny#1 is at "Polnocny #1|Warship|0,698|0,975" but in the map it is 0,= position, same for kiev, and others ships. Attached image, initial scenario position, and saved game. Thank you Bear in the Island 01034000,00.txt REF_turn_010301,25 prueba.txt
