[HOT] Simulation in Samoa

I was trying around a bit with the Tasking Manager this morning. Its
accepting “single polygon” relations, the problem seems to be with
multipolygon as Pierre mentioned.

Is it possible to create a fake relation around the islands for the
simulation on Saturday? 

I would also suggest to make the tiles for the “Job: Samoa Cyclone
Simulation” smaller (about Zoom level 12)


Cheers Daniel

What I meant was creating a relation using existing ways. For example those
which define the coastline.

For now I cannot check out why your relation isn't loaded. If I remember
well it doesn't support multi polygons currently.


And I won't be able to check till Tuesday. Too bad I have something
scheduled for the whole week-end.

I created this relation prior to creating the task yesterday. But the Task
manager was not able to use this relation. To be able to create the job, I
have defined a rectangle with the mouse.  As I see, it is not possible to
revise the area once the task is created.


This morning I started a new job. An the same problem arises. I cannot click
on the Create the Job button (no hyperlink).

the area.

enter it manually to define the area. Hold down shift to draw a bounding box
across the map.

Just a quick note. To create jobs for the tasking manager more efficiently,
it would probably be better to configure the jobs with a relation. I had a
quick look this morning to check if there were already one for the Samoa
Island. Unfortunately, there's none apparently. Though, it shouldn't be that
difficult to create one.

The main goal is to avoid the ocean only tiles.

Does it make sense?


And once again, please write down any feedback. I definitely want the
tasking manager to be as powerful and easy to use as possible.
