PilotAware Map
« on: October 12, 2015, 09:40:02 am »
Hi all,

I've created an open Google Map. Feel free to add yourselves to it (to the existing map layer) using your user name from here.
The idea is really just to see if there are other PilotAware users nearby you can contact (via PM on here) to help with testing units against each other. It's not a list of actively running units.

Cracking idea Ian. I'm in and, so far, am by far the most northern outpost of the empire.

On the map under the search bar there is a little tear drop which when hovered over says "Add Marker".....click on this, then the location where you are on the map and it should appear...then fill in the details of your forum name from here....and jobs done !!

Yea add a pin to the map roughly where you are with your forum name to the PilotAware Owners layer.

I've added a second map layer to which we could add live running units but it's probably too much faff for everyone to keep accurate so probably best to coordinate running / testing between yourselves.
If you do add this this one, include your hex code your PAW is using and ensure it's up and running for people flying over to detect.
