As of October 12th, Google is requiring an API key for sites that use Google maps (with a charge for more than a certain amount of loads per day). We have completed the upgrade to VRS 2.4.0 that allows us to use a Google Maps API key.
If anyone notices anything odd or broken, please let me know.
Update: I have received several inquiries related to the “clustering” feature on the new version. If you want to modify it’s behavior, here is how:
- Adjust the map to the zoom level where you want planes to start being “clustered”. If you want absolutely no clustering, zoom out as far as possible.
- Go to Menu -> Options -> Aircraft -> “Cluster aircraft at this zoom level”
That’s it! It should be retained in your settings cookie for future sessions or until you clear your browser’s cache.
Let me know if you have any issues.
