Mini Project #1 - CIC Warfare Plotter Release Notes

  • 2014-09-05
    • Changes
      1. The world country outlines layer will no longer make the countries fill in with a solid white when the plotter is loaded a second time.
      2. Scenario start date/time is now kept in the scenario file.
        •      <MP01Scenario>
                   <timestamp name="start">41661.0</timestamp>

      3. The "current" time as well as other timestamps in the scenario file will be stored as offsets from the start date/time. In the example above, a "current" timestamp of 1.0 would evaluate to 41662.0 (January 2, 2014) !!!For the only the "start" time is tracked!!!
