how to manage the energy on VR?
Post by iconPost by Ptit Pimousse | 2022-07-02 | 06:24:51

Quick question to all the pro out there. Following the route along Portugal, all the routeurs are giving me a few gybes which are likely to cost me all my energy. To that extent, I ahve decided to push further out after passing Galicia, allowing for a reduction of drop on my energy bar. But is it the right strategy? Should I just follow the routers and just lose the energy or should I conserve it at all cost?

I am a little confused as to what to do to be honest.

I'm not a pro, which is probably why I reported the whole stamina feature as bug. They've tried to make VR as realistic as possible and then they introduce a feature that says your crew gets completely exhausted doing 4 sail changes per day. Eight hours of doing nothing and your stamina is still only half full.

Zezo, like all the other routers I'm aware of, does not know your current energy state, sail or tack. It does take into account normal sail change penalties. However, since it doesn't know your current state, if it calls for an immediate change of tack and sail change, that is not taken into account.

So, something for you to manage manually. Remember as well, when your energy is full, maneuvers take half the normal time.

Hi BooBill,
Yes vrzen now takes the stamina into account and you can set your current energy state.

I note that my maneuvers do not take longer than before .... (on VRDahbord), but I have never gone to zero energy.

VRDashboard 3.18 doesn't know about stamina. I just submitted version 3.19 that displays stamina and takes it into account in the displayed penalties.

Google still needs to verify and publish the new extension version. This usually takes a few days. Once published, Chrome automatically pulls the new version when it's restarted.

Hi Hardtack, the VRDashboard has been updated to 3.19.0, I ask you the power setting is transparent to the user or you have to see something in particular. Thanks for everything and sorry for the inconvenience.

¿No comprendo?
Are the tooltips on the new stamina column and the tack, gybe and sail change columns helpful?

Sorry. Now I see the columns you are talking about. I will study them at the next regatta.
Thank you very much.

Sorry. I was very anxious and careless to look at the new update.
Thank you very much.
