[Suggestion] Datapad can add multiple GPS Markers

Catch22 shared this feedback 8 months ago

I suggested this on my feedback form after the beta, but it wouldn't hurt to also post this here:


Please allow the Datapads to add multiple GPS coords if more than one set of coords are listed. For example:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GPS:Earth:0:0:0:

GPS:Moon:16,384:136,384:-113,616:

GPS:Mars:1,031,072:131,072:1,631,072:

GPS:Europa:916,384:16,384:1,616,384:

GPS:Alien:131,072:131,072:5,731,072:

GPS:Titan:36,384:226,384:5,796,384:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


If this was pasted to a datapad, and the "add waypoint" button was clicked, currently only the first "Earth" coordinates would've been added and the rest would be ignored. I would like the whole list to be added at once.

Datapad can indeed can create multiple GPSs (up to 20) (unless there is any bug).

Problem is in the way you obtained those other GPSs. Only the Earth one is correct. The other ones contains commas for separating thousands, which is unacceptable. The coordinates can contain only numbers, period for separation of decimals and minus for negative values.


How did you obtain those GPSs? If it was through use of 'Copy to clipboard', then it means there is different problem (though there is use of InvariantCulture meaning that all numbers should be formatted same regardless of personal computer settings, for which we would need more information). If you have created those GPSs yourself and added there thousands-separating-comma, then you know where the problem is.

I may have entered them incorrectly, not removing the commas. I will test again during the next public test to confirm that they work. The format should have been:

GPS:_Earth:0:0:0:

GPS:_Moon:16384:136384:-113616:

GPS:_Mars:1031072:131072:1631072:

GPS:_Europa:916384:16384:1616384:

GPS:_Alien:131072:131072:5731072:

GPS:_Titan:36384:226384:5796384:
