FREAKING AMAZING. Better than I could ever have imagined.
I just had a blast - loaded it up and screaming around on that little (Lazer?) very intuitive... just clicked options to see what they were. the "pilot" view is wonderful! (though I wish my body was a little more... I changed the view width to hide missing body (but would prefer slightly wider view with body).
Water is amazing as is sound of waves. It really feels like hiking out. Control (I've read a lot of things - problems on here about control)
I have no clue? control with mouse alone was exceptional. Loved pulling in the main sheet. Was also neet to loosen the end of the sail on the boom as it made more "pocket" and tilted the boat more. I've never tried that on my (real hobies). I have 3 and one tilts up more than another. I assumed it was the pocket, but thought it was due to batten tension. I see now that this helps add or remove the pocket or (curve of the sail).
Going back to up the res. (was running in 1600x1024 or about) and want to try it higher as was smooth as silk. I also assume no online racing with this version. Still it's enough to get my even more excited for my package to come I WANT WAIT FOR TEH HOBIE 16 (included in Deluxe version right?)
How come I never read anything about this on sailing forums... like the hobie forums? This will be a blast this winter here in Michigan.
