Best sailing game to date!
Outstanding graphics and realism.
Unbelievable courses. Beautiful.
Request the camera button be relocated away from he sail trim slider.
Please for the love of God, have the option to move the rudder to the left side of the screen. 2 reasons; 1. Its more ergonomic. Instead of stretching your hand and loosing the ability to reach full right rudder because the main sheet is in the way - it’ll always have full range and feel more natural to how we hold the screen.
1. Always at the most inopportune times, such as when stretching your finger over to the far side of the screen to tack, if your finger lifts off the screen even just a tiny bit, the phone interprets this as minimizing the app which then causes the game to pause. But when you hit Resume, you’ve lost control.
Along with this, the main sheet often becomes unresponsive to touch.
A very frustrating and repetitive occurrence. It’s literally the only things that make me want to throw my phone. 🤣
PLEASE DEAR GOD FIX THIS ISSUE!!!!!!!!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your comments.
We just wanted to make sure: do you know that you can tilt the device to control rudder? (like a steering wheel in a car?) This is how most users control the left/right turns. Hardly anyone uses the on-screen slider.
Can you provide more details on what you mean by saying that “main sheet becomes unresponsive”. Do you mean the vertical slider on the right edge of the screen?
Not for yacht racing fans
It's a great game if you enjoy recreational sailing and or want to get a basic idea on how it works. But I found it a bit dissatisfying if your into yacht races because the boats do not have a jib or spinnaker nether does it use the 2 way floating marks but rather one way gates. Great start but could use improvement. Personally I would love it if there where more boats to chose from especially larger ones with a jib. A plus over other apps I've seen-the ability to furl your sail in heavy conditions, the amazing graphics and a great toutorial!
Love the program except the camera perspective changes at the worse times and then I am stuck trying to fix it. Ultimately losing precious points earned in previous games. The new update hasn't helped.
