Yay! it works. The waves and water color vary all around you now. The waves build up slowly behind islands and shallow seas and the color of the water varies with the depth. http://sailaway.world/20160623_indepth_waveheight2.html

A whole new AR overlay for Sailaway. It shows actual sail trim compared with the ideal sail trim, all lines, COG, SOG, AWD and everything you may need. Just click the little AR glasses icon and it appears. I wish I had this in real sailing.

Beta testers have received version 0.3. This version gives better insight in the sail trim and offers more intuitive operation of the lines. Also, you can now customize the colors of your boat down to the smallest detail.
The release notes can be found here http://sailaway.world/20160303_release_notes_0_3.html

On a real sailboat you find the optimal sail trim because you see the sails, feel the wind and feel how the boat responds. But in a simulation your view is limited and there is no feeling anything.

So even though I am the one that build the sailing algorithms, I found it very hard to trim the sails manually. That's why I added this little cheat thingy. It shows the optimal sail trim and the actual sail trim for the current situation.

Rendered a polar diagram from the default boat in Sailaway directly from the sailing algorithm. Incredible how much it resembles the real thing. I love Math.

I also rendered a diagram to compare a non-optimal sailtrim. Have a look here http://sailaway.world/20160213_polar_graph.html

Wrote a documentation page on sail trim. Complex stuff, but I tried to explain clear and to the point. At least I think so, but I am biased.
Better judge for yourself.
