Motorboat training area.

General question for Sail Simulator (raising sails, pulling sheets, etc.)

Motorboat training area.

I downloaded the Motorboat training area and would like to add it to the sailing areas in Sail Simulator. I have tried (seached) finding the directory where the normal areas are stored. no luck. Installing the motorboat area? Who knows where that file goes when you execute the exe. program.

Adding sailing area

I may have come up with my own answer. When the first screen offers sailing areas, the motorboat training area is not offered. However after the program is running, under enviroment, sailing area, the motorboat training area is offered. I am new to armchair sailing having spent one hour solo on a Hobie. In the MB area, there's a small inlet (shaped like a hook) with a narrow opening. Tacking in and out has been fun.

The first screen aren't sailing area's, AFAIK. Those are previously saved scenario's.

Thanks for the information. Still learning, both the program and armchair sailing. Marty

Hi Marty,
Once the program is running go to enviroment, sailing area, select Motorboat Training Area, then select where you want to start then select Game, Save Situation, type the name that you want (eg Motorboat Training Area), then you can press ESC & select Sail & then you can choose the situation that you created (Motorboat Training Area).
