Dear Yajun,

When you zeroed out the fairlead load by customizing the source code, you didn't actually modify how the mooring line was modeled in MAP++, correct? Thus, while FAST does not feel the tension of the mooring line that has failed, the tension in the line as calculated by MAP++ is not actually zero, correct?

Best regards,
