Hi AD
Do you mean something like this?
Just a bigger map version.





You can make the maps bigger to print them but not improve the quality of the resolution.

Regarding post #57, the four bearing tutorial. Please delete this if it's not appropriate to ask here.

The in-game four bearing tutorial text says the course of the ship is 206. I keep coming up with a course of about 198 after the third bearing reading. The true bearing for the contact in order are 56, 61, and 68 according to the tutorial text. I've gone through and done the map work twice and get the same result.

Any idea what I may be doing wrong? I did zoom in when drawing lines to get it as accurate as I could. I've done it enough that I get the concept and what I should be doing but I question it since I get a different result....

You did the right thing.

Target's course is 151 AFAIK from the tutorial.

68 will depend on where and how far you moved your boat too, as will be the distance to you take up to shoot at the target will be different between players IIRC.

Long time since I did this tutorial.
The tutorial is taken from Trevally's words and diagrams not from me.

The first three bearings are while not moving and I'm just using the numbers that the script is saying to use. Interesting that the target course of 151 and what I get, 198/9, is 360. I wonder if I'm reading the wrong side of the compass, lol.

Thanks for the input and I'll check to see if I may be reading something wrong. I've yet to play the game. Got it last week and I've just been watching videos about it.

Hi b
Don't forget to get a true bearing which is essential you have to take your own course bearing into account as well.
That is why each time you do the tutorial the last bearing is likely to be different because you have moved the boat.
