New light rings

Actually the hehavioris not always the same. Below are 2 screenshots (again from Catalina Islands) showing one new light ring respecting the sector and another one not. You can also see the to-scale solid sector lines from the new light rings.

Using Noaa Encs between Chesapeake and Key West with up to date git code.

I get irregular gray areas that comes and goes with zooming. See example below.

The problem with the second picture is probably that the sector covering land is "Partially obscured by hills". Normally O does not show such a sector, but obviously the extended sector, if activated, does show the sector.......with a hovering cursor.
This contradiction could actually be a good compromise as it encourages the user to do an object query on the light to see what is going on. There is no easy way to simply show a "Partially obscured" sector....

Hmm. None of the 2 light descriptions (as shown when double-clicking on the light) says anything about "partially obscured". Where exactly would I find that information?

I just realized that the classical light rings are also different in the 2 pictures: one has a black arc in the unlit sector completing the circle and the other one does not.

I restarted O and the gray areas disappeared. I wonder what's going on ?

Where do I learn more about the new "extended sector" logic?
I got the partially obscured bit from an object query, double( or right)-clicking on the lighthouse, using CM93, as I don't have the NOAA charts for the area.

Extended light sectors is an old feature described in the documentation.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.8.10109

Grib, WR, Tides and what else deals with time? Is it time to have a universally positioned time control in the interface which sets everything and also is changed by plugins like grib and Wr?

It is probably more complex that I know, but I think Maxsea took that approach. It means more communication and interface between plugins and the program.....

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.8.10109

did-g...

re:
Not a new bug and rather trivial but how s57expectedinput.csv has been computed?
There's values in attdecode.csv missing int it.

For example RESTRN 16;discharging prohibited; and above but they are actually used in RESARE and 'Object Query...' returns an unhelpful
16

1. In file: opencpn/data/s57data/s57attributes.csv, look up the attribute name of interest, here is RESTRN. Note the prefix code in that file is "131".

2. In file: opencpn/data/s57data/s57expectedinput.csv, look for the prefix code, "131" in this case. There you will find listed the values that the attribute RESTRN(131) can take on.

3. I think this is redundant with contents of file: opencpn/data/s57data/attdecode.csv. Probably we could improve the lookup logic.

Anyway, I will add "16;discharging prohibited" to s57expectedinput.csv

More?

Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.8.10109

There are several bugs with grib plugin and macOS.
The main settings window does not stay on top.
Some settings windows includes strange numbers (see red circles).
I cannot find "Geopot. Hight Choice" in settings.

Can't reproduce here. FWIW it is part of the Density slider, but it is positioned correctly on my Mac. Are you using the official build? Retina or not?

Only available if it makes sense for the currently displayed grib file and seems working fine here.

These faults are NOT with my own build which is OK but with the official version 4.8.10109 which is discussed in this thread here. Please ckeck all the settings and not only the Wind setting.

When a symbol is only available for a special grib file why is there a gadget to switch it on and off? Not very intuitive. Why does the developers confuse the users?

We both know I am not very clever, can you please try to rephrase so that even I understand what you talk about?

Retina or not?

Thank you

Might be, now can you please rephrase your information so that even an idiot like me can understand it?

Thank you
