(New or interesting aspects of GHS that you may not know about)

(Requires GHS version 15.34 or later Part Maker)

The RENDER wizard is an efficient means of designing images suitable for placing in reports. The current waterplane can be represented if desired. Also internal tanks can be seen if the opacity of the hull is reduced to a value less than 1.0.

Pressing the "View Commands" button brings up the commands that can be copied and pasted into your run file.

The result represents the waterplane as it exists at that point in the run.

Pressing "Go to MB" brings up the multi-body dialog. The example below specifies a combination of two vessels.

Below is the result. The "Update positions" button causes the conditions and positions of ships to be updated from information that may be sent from another source such as one or more GHS multi-body runs.
