Gus is at it again

Guys, check your email as Gus at Patagonia is updating LoadBase Mobile again. As usual it downloaded and installed without a hitch.

Cool! First order of business this evening... DownLoad and checkout Patagonia Ballistics LoadBase 3.0 ballistic software.

Re: Gus is at it again

I charged up my PPC just a couple night ago to play with LoadBase using multiple wind zones. Ususally I don't have it charged when there is an update ready and I have to wait for it to charge.

What all is changed?

Re: Gus is at it again

This update incorporates the following additions:

BALLISTICS Module

Shoot! tab

-New UI design to address the need for Rapid Fire Engagement

1. Whenever a change in the Wind or Incline parameters is detected, including changing the UNITS, a new calculation is required.

2. All Fire Solution fields turn to ď----Ē and the RANGE box turns to WHITE ON WHITE, and all settings turn to a DISABLED state.

3. In the example, the Incline units was changed from DEGREES to COSINE and a new value was entered.

4. Then apply a SINGLE TAP (not tap and hold!) to the WHITE rectangle of the RANGE box selector and wait until the calculation is over.

5. Of course, tapping on RESULTS or CHARTS will have the same effect as expected.

6. In general, itís important to realize that the system will always recalculate if a change is made to ANY parameter that implies a change to the ballistics curve.

Shoot!/Winds

-The Fire Data tab was modified to a Multiple Winds page only.

Data/Env tab

-The ENVIRONMENT tab is now the first page for a fast access to the ENV data.

ANALYZER Module

ATM tab

-The new ATM tab allows to calculate Density Altitude, ICAO Std Atmosphere, Heat Index and Wind Chill Index.

-The ICAO Std Atmosphere values are a very good alternative when the only known parameter is ALTITUDE.

BC (from Vel) tab

-New Std Atmosphere option. Select the output to be referenced to ICAO or Std Metro.

Re: Gus is at it again

Exellent!

The RANGE box turns to WHITE on RED when the bullet went subsonic. While supersonic, itís WHITE on BLUE

Re: Gus is at it again

I like the different tab lay out, seems to be in the order you want to change stuff.

Also dign the yardage changing to red like Eaglet said and I think the solution is faster. Having the wind direction and velocity on the shoot screen is better but I miss also having the velocity and energy because I kinda used that to gauge if a shot was within my comfort zone.

I like the Atm tab in the analyzer, so if all I know is my temp and alt I can use this to find what Density altitude to use back in my Ballistics Env tab for a better solution, right?
