Description
The Bigger Better Protractors mod changes the map tool large mouse cursors for the protractor, ruler, and course plotter. The new cursors are approximately twice as large as the originals, with higher contrast for better readability. The protractor and ruler are very similar in layout to the originals, but I changed the course plotter to have a usable radial scale for more accurate plotting.

Bigger Better Protractors is JSGME ready and should be compatible with most other mods. If there is a conflict, check out the readme for a possible workaround.

I've been using these cursors on my 1680x1050 monitor, and they work well at that resolution. Larger resolutions should also be good, but smaller resolutions may not. Here they are on my screen. (Nav Map MakeOver mod by NbJackso: http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=166264)

Great Mod, thanks. Those tiny protractors were very hard to use for calculations with these tired old eyes.
Please permit me a question; where can I get your K/Nm table, right side of the images? I went to NOAA no help, only maps and charts, a google for DotN 301-42 brought no joy as well.
Thanks in advance.
