Thanks for your help once again, Camster. I got it to work. I created a racecourse for the start of the Sydney to Hobart race. I added several VO70s to the traffic as opponents and am using 100 ft maxis for the actual race class. I must say the results are pretty cool. Just exactly the look I was a...

Re: HOSTING PROBLEM

... Finding out if the effort is successful is a problem using VSK, i.e. I don't know if the ports are not open or if no one wants to join my server. So your suggestion will help with that. John I've also used Port Forward in the past to check if ports are open, highly recommended. Again, as Alx sa...

Ahoy marineverse (Greg) and well met. That sounds like an interesting concept. Waterproof VR hardware, a fan and a mate with a bucket of icy water while you sit in the bathtub might bring some realism to this game! (jks!!) Have a hunt around these forums for how to play the game on Mac with an emula...

@frolich and @Alx, I guess that's why we created VSK Australia all those years ago, and why so many other online / virtual clubs exist now. It was a group of like minded virtual skippers, some active IRL sailors, most not. The best bet to avoid boorish behaviour from hosts is to look up one in your ...

R17.1 most certainly applies in TR in VSK. A skilled skipper who is overlapped to windward/ahead/within 2 BL will try to break the overlap the re-establish it by slowing down, and then maintain it to the layline. The skipper behind only needs to do a quick double gybe to turn it off, so it can becom...

Blender for Modelling

I'm looking at using Blender to create a new 3D model but haven't the faintest idea of where to start - has anyone used Blender for modelling at all?
