I think github is a save way to share.

Hi, thanks for the suggestions, they all look useful. I assume you are setting things up so you can start up the multi-screen simulator automatically?

So far I have done 1, 3, 4 & 5, and these are included in

I'll continue to have a look at the rest.

Some questions:
I think 6 is for the 'repeater' program?
For 7, I'll probably add joystick button mappings for these. I assume that would work for you?

I like your setup and intend to build a similar one.
Environment models / Data Netherlands

First, I'm new here, it is a great simulator.

I have a lot of data of the Netherlands
- File with all Buoys and signs in the waterways, upcomming weeks I start creating the file for the simulator
- Is there a limit in number of Buoys in an ini-file? (There will be about 16.000)
- I have a lot of depth and sonardata (Over 5000 km) how to translate these files to usable depth files in the simulator?
- I have about 1 Million of 360 pictures, taken every 4 meter, is it possible to use them to build a world?
Feature requests & suggestions / multiple config files
« Last post by hhandresen on August 25, 2021, 07:23:33 PM »

I'm about to build a complete bridge based on bridge command.
I got 5 55" monitors for 180 degree view in front, and some monitors for aft. view.
I will also have dedicated monitors for radar, heading, and rudder indicator.

I will also have real Furuno ecdis system on the bridge.

I really appreciate this software !!! But have some suggestions to fit my setup.

I got one pc running 4 monitors and one running 3 monitors.

I would like to:

1) Have multiple config files (It's okay to edit by hand and not via gui) and start bc with argument to point at config file - etc. ./bridgecommand.exe -c monitor1.conf 
2) Start bc at the right monitor, etc monitor=3 as entry in config file for windows monitor number 3
3) Start as a slave monitor.
4) Start with instruments hidden.
5) Start with radar in full screen.
6) Start as rudder or heading indicator.
7) Have keyboard shortcuts/joystick to control radar. (For use with external panel) Zoom +/-, Gain +/-, Rain +/-, Sea +/-, Arpa on/off etc.
8) I noticed that nmea is running quite slow and position drops  out on ecdis now, I tried both real comport and via network. (Position needs one time pr. sec.)
9) Wind data on NMEA could be really nice also.

As I build the bridge I might have more suggestions - But I think this is for now  :P :P

Once again - what a great software.

Thanks for the solution, I will try.

The next feature I'm working on is better interaction with the land/dockside so you don't just 'run aground'. I'm hoping to get something released on this in the next few months.

As you've seen, the heightmap does not allow for 'bridge' features.

But if you have a 3d model of the bridge (or can make one), you can add this in your user directory in Models\LandObject\ObjectName (user directory is normally %appdata%\Bridge Command\5.6\, so this would be %appdata%\Bridge Command\5.6\Models\LandObject\ObjectName). Then you can load this into your world model in the same way as any other 'land object'.

How would you (any anyone else!) feel about using GitHub for this? I can create a repository of the current 'default' scenarios, which anyone could then fork, add their own scenarios, and submit a pull request so I could incorporate their submissions.

I have been looking at a more conventional 'file library', but I'm worried it would be difficult to avoid spammers and others trying to misuse this. Hopefully users don't see it, but most attempts to post in the forum are spam of some form!

Alternatively, if people want to email me with their scenarios, world models, ships etc., I'd be very happy to set up a file library where I would upload submissions myself.

What about bridges ?

If I got a bridge today, it shows up as a peace of land between the to islands ?

Any clue on this ?
