You will soon be able to have a live elevation plot when riding a route with RoadCaptain!
This will allow you to plan your power ahead as you’ve got a very clear view of what’s coming up.
A pre-release version will be available soon at roadcaptain.nl
Given the state of the official route profile top-right, that’s a great addition!
Yeah I’ve seen a lot of complaints about that one (never managed to be able to use it myself either )
As I’ve had the elevation plot built for the route builder part, it was fairly easy to include it in the runner too
Pre-release is available for download: Release 0.6.11.0 · sandermvanvliet/RoadCaptain · GitHub
When the in-game window shows press CTRL+E (on windows) or Cmd+E (on macOS) to toggle the elevation plot.
On any road or only on planned roads?
Urukazi update included?
Only on planned routes. The challenge is that when you’re either finished a planned route or are freewheeling and you come up to an intersection I can’t predict which way you will go.
That means that even though I can show the elevation for the current segment you’re on, I can’t show it for the next segment if it’s a junction.
Or at least, that’s my thinking right now.
I’ve heard a few times that a sort of “view only” mode for RoadCaptain would be useful to show the elevation plot for example. So that might be a thing I’ll investigate next but it’s not a core function I’ve foreseen for RoadCaptain.
With regards to Urukazi: updating Makuri Islands is on the list as well as adding the other remaining worlds.
Beside of missing roads in your modification, your gradient forecast is a high valueable addition to the HUD.
