Ship sails tooo fast

Postby varoun » Sat May 04, 2013 12:07 am

I have a sail ship called ''santisima trinidad''. However, it sails too fast. How do i slow it down?
The ship sails at 25knots at very low winds. Any suggestions?
ps. I know is something i have to change in the boat.cfg file but which one?

I suggest you increase .cdf value (drag coefficient) to approx. 0.035 or so...and if that still doesn't help, try gradually increasing cross_section_area. I'd leave sail area alone if it's correct for the real ship. Santissima Trinidad works just fine for me in both VS and VSF...and she is a slug...not fast at all.
