Title: Ideas and Suggestions For New Ship Simulator
Post by: boatsimrocks25 on November 03, 2019, 16:28:54
Hey everyone,

I think it would be cool if we added our ideas/suggestions for the developers to look at about new things for the upcoming Ship Simulator.


My list of ideas/suggestions: (get ready)

=>Please PLEASE keep MS Oceana in the new ship sim game, I LOVE that ship! :D

=>Ability to Anchor in both Single-player and Multi-player.

=>Ability to moor to docks in both Single-player and Multi-player.

=>Types of ships: Aircraft Carriers, Coast Guard Ships, Cruise Ships, Freighters, Hovercrafts, Tug Boats, Yachts.)

=>Bow waves.

=>Bow/Stern Thrusters for ships that have them.(must have for me)

=>Let water spray stick to windows.

=>Ships with Bridge wings and controls on them.

=>Ships with Jet Propulsion like the White Marlin would be EPIC!

=>The new state of the art feature/mechanic that allows the larger ships such as Freighters to adjust the pitch of the propeller blades without having to wait for them to reverse direction to slowdown or reverse.
(Yes this is a thing, I know someone personally that worked for Canadian Steam Ship Lines for 30+ years.)

=>I will add more as I think of things.

Anyone got ideas too, post them here! :D

Just one wish:

Keep the Mission Editor simple. (More or less in the way it was in SS2008, maybe with some more options, rather than the extremely complicated SSE version.)

P.S.: It seems to me that sailing ships are very difficult to simulate, due to both the animation of the rigging and the dynamics which are depending on either the direction and the force of the wind. That there are two different kinds of wind propulsion (impact pressure and aerodynamic "lift") may increase the problems.
But maybe I'm wrong. If so, there could be some sailing ships in the game. This might perhaps attract some players to whom Virtual Sailor is too competitive.

Best wishes

The Pride of Rotterdam and some vessels of the Royal Netherlands Navy like HNLMS Tromp, an LPD like HNLMS Johan de Witt and a supply vessel like HNLMS Karel Doorman.
