Description

The grid appears upside down on the Y axis.

Example the grid numbers currently show:

Top
012
013
014
015
Bottom

etc

This is in fact wrong, as grids are read and therefore plotted from bottom to top on the Y axis and so should look like this:

Top
012
011
010
090
080
070
Bottom

etc

This issue causes consistency problems when it comes to using 8 figure grid references.

History

Updated by SafetyCatch over 5 years ago

Just to explain for those not following, if you were to look at the second 4 letters in an 8 figure grid reference it would currently look like this:

Top
0129

0139
0138
0137
0136
0135
0134
0133
0132
0131

0130
Bottom

Which is clearly wrong when reading the grid in the correct way, from the bottom to the top.

Interesting find.

Voted yes. If fixed, some missions might have hard coded grids in text or voice. Also don't forget to update the fnc_worldtogrid (?) function. At the very least (if afraid to "break" missions), fix it for OA, and ajust the function to support different "grid styles". Not sure if retaining mission data should have a high priority this late though.

Not valid. ACE grid fixed bug.

Would be good to get the code for the fix in here.
