    Default Tactical Symbol vector lines showing through terrain

    The tactical symbol vector lines appear to be visible though terrain. See attached examples.

    Please respond if I need to report this issue via a different method.

    Default direction of movement indicator includes strange pitch

    I have a similar, but slightly different observation to make. The direction of movement indicator looks like it's pointing in the right direction (yaw) when viewed from directly above, but when I change my viewing angle it appears to either point below ground or above ground (pitch). See attached screenshots... the only thing that I've changed in the screen shots is my perspective.

    We're planning to change the direction of movement indicator to draw in geographic space (currently it is drawn in screen space). This will prevent the indicator from showing through terrain, and should also make it more useable when the view is tilted. This will probably happen in the next week or two.

    I've changed how the leader line is drawn to prevent it from showing through terrain, and to make it more usable when the view is tilted. This change will be available in tomorrow's build (4/10, svn revision #509).

    Looks like #509 has been on hold for some reason... I'm excited to get it!

    Cool... I only mentioned it because the download page:
    http://builds.worldwind.arc.nasa.gov...ease-daily.asp

    and the underlying repo of files:
    http://builds.worldwind.arc.nasa.gov.../daily/builds/

    haven't been updating. Thanks!

    Oops...in my previous post I meant to say that daily builds are not working. The problem has been fixed, so they are working again today.
