Boat Scenario is a drawing tool. It is your ideal companion for training sessions, rule learning, strategy explanations and more.
The project is mature and still allows for improvements.
The main features are:
- Available for Windows, Linux, and Mac.
- Multiple boat shapes, because not everyone races a Soling! Available boats now are Optimist, Laser, Tornado, and Keelboat. More can be added!
- Easy boat movement and setting the heading with left and right mouse buttons.
- Boat selection mechanism to edit multiple boats together, and undo/redo options.
- Smooth animation with play/pause/hand set to test the realism of the drawing.
- Wind shifts along the scenario.
- Export as an animation image, or as a still Image of any time in the animation.
- Printing support to generate a nice call description.
- Data is saved as xml. It is thus planned for further evolutions.
