disabled ladder

I have been using the program including hosting for some months without problems, however now when I tried to play the program initially loads then asks me to please wait, after a long time it then says the ladder is disabled and I will not be able to play officially. Even if I answer the above &quo...

Nadeo skins, a hosting issue

I know its politically correct to welcome all newcomers and I did my share in introducing many to real water sailing and racing in my 50+ years on the water, however newcomers to virtual sailing seem more interested in the "gaming" aspect and have little interest for the nuances, tradition...

Nadeo skins, a hosting issue

Ok, pehaps I am not skilled enough to handle the nadeo skin.....funny though since I rarely race when hosting. I just finished a race with another host with a nadeo spinnaker in my cockpit and had to perform the camera antics to avoid the boat in front of me and the mark coming up. This happens all ...

Nadeo skins, a hosting issue

At some time or other I am sure many of you have been "blinded" by a nadeo boat under spinnaker close astern. Yes I know all the camera angle solutions that unless you are very experienced sometimes cause additional problems. I have been hosting now since early this year and finally made t...

This is an issue that calls for a software upgrade...one of many! As an almost daily host (At Liberty) I seldom race in my own maps as multitasking doesn't work for me but when racing on other servers share the frustration with non transparent sails. Hosting, I do not kick those newbies or those sim...

Wire or not wire

Back again for help from you guys.... Have decided to try a game controller on advice of a couple of online friends. I know the general concensus is that it is better to cable rather than use wireless on VSK however I have tried wireless keyboard, mouse and router/modem and seem to have no problems ...

Thanks Sandy, guess we will just have to make due with what Nadeo gives us, or should I say Ubisoft.

Custom tracks

Is there anyway of creating/adding new terrain and/or blocks to the Tropical or Nordic venues? Or creating new similar venues? I am enjoying creating new tracks to host but the land and seascaping choices presented in the Editor are very limited. I seem to remember somewhere in the forum that someon...

I was wondering how one got to be "excellent" as a host! I do have a serious question though, I am sure that doesn't surprise this panel. Yesterday during a race a message came up in Chat with no name identity "Clock shift detected for (here was the name of a player racing)" This...

All one has to do is ask... and you will get intelligent answers and all the help you need...thanks again all. I correspond (email) with my good friend JB which many of you may know. He's a great host and offered me the suggestion that I could try hosting in spectator mode until I felt more comforta...

Luna, I will certainly look into CU and I thank you for the information. Actually I am seeking advice on how to conduct a race as a host not the design of the course. When to kick or ban? Whether to participate as a competative racer or just "go along for the ride"? I complimented on both ...

You may be talking about a guy (I won't call him a sailor) I had the unpleasent priviledge of hosting. Perhaps spelled with an "a" not an "i". Seems this is not the first instance or host he delights in bitching about. I have a good friend and host who is thinking about giving ho...
