Development / Re: Software Modification Start

I would also like a "what to use for a clean build on windows", right now I can't get the code to compile in whatever vs I try.

Right now VS2015 is complaining about projects compiling to same folder, (.pdb issue), referenced files not in projects (irrlicht.h and asio - which can be fixed manually) and finally a reference to boost which is not in the git repo.

I actually don't know how to get it to compile nicely at the moment.

Thumbs up, it would be nice with a quick "this is needed for compiling on windows" etc.

I can't get compilation to work doing a git pull and opening the sln in either VS2015 pro or VS2017 pro.

Environment models / Navigation chart specification and land specification?
« on: December 19, 2018, 02:15:53 PM »
Which format should be used for navigational charts and which for land surface elevations?

I would like to get a map of Denmark up and running but I need to know which maps formats I should try to get access to.

AIS input would be fun - NMEA input handling for some of the online AIS sources would be interesting.

Feature requests & suggestions / Autopilot feature
« on: December 03, 2018, 08:32:57 AM »
BridgeControl looks great.

I am in the need of an autopilot feature - basically just a way to handle incoming bearing and thrust. I have an NMEA output from a control scenario that I can pipe out to ethernet. Basically I would like to use BridgeControl to simulate some track / waypoint behavior.

So - does this seem feasible?
1. Adding the capability to handle NMEA inputs to NMEA.cpp (we need to add the listening capability to handle the incoming data)
2. Create a simple PI(D) loop that performs the turn and has the current bearing as feedback - it seems to me like I need to put the autopilot into OwnShip to get periodic recalculations.
3. I might need a PI(D) loop for the thrust control as well

I have been looking through the code, but I still don't have a complete picture of how everything is put together.
