Definitely a cruise ship with bow and stern thrusters (like ocean star) but it should be free. Also a naval ship!

Ah... well... :P

If ship owners don’t change their attitude to this game then I guess all the stuff people with of ships and boats become fictional - or maybe not... :D

Soon you will see replies where people wish themselves ships like Queen Mary, Freedom of the Seas, Disney Cruise Line… Carnival and so it goes. :P

I hate to say it but that’s the sad part of this … so let’s do something with ship owners attitude, and make them understand. Or maybe we shouldn’t care at all and just add logos to these new fantastic ship models and we all get sued … If that  happen, well there will be a media storm maybe, where this game get a lot of attention. What kind of attention this is (positive or negative) is hard to say. The scenario has not happened yet... I have not been sued yet for making the Emma Maersk model... ;D

Have some of you been in jail before? How is the food? I would like to know… :D ;D

On-topic:Whatever! Queen Mary is fine for me. I hope she will become a part of this game someday. ;)

The latter would be great! Have you seen her terminal at the Hook van Holland? Well, since she has withdrawn from service a long time ago, it's not very realistic to wait for her. But the other mentioned RoPax's may use the terminal ahead of the HSS berth.

The terminal in shipsim 08 is completed for a stena line ship. The harbour in SS08 (stena Line) is great!

Caledonian MacBrayne car ferries!   ;D They've got a great range of fleet from a 22m bow-loading ferry to a 101m RO-RO ferry. I'm not sure if they would allow their vessels on Ship Simulator though.

Also it would be nice if we have small passenger vessels such as the paddle steamer Waverley, Clyde steamers Queen Mary II, Duchess of Hamilton (a very beautiful ship) or King George V, etc.

What I would also like to see (and sorry, this is not a ship) is freedom to sail anywhere without the stupid "you've reached the end of the environment" thingy.  Just as you can take off from any airport in MS Flight Simulator, and fly all over the world without limits, so it would be good if we could continuously sail anywhere without interruptions.  ;D

I would love to see my two favourite ships from the 1960s.  MV St Ninian, North of Scotland Orkney & Shetland Shipping Co. Ltd (I have plans for her), and MV Lochiel, David MacBraynes - she was mainly on the Islay run.  Unofficially I spent many hours at the wheel of both of them and I would love to do it again.

Here is the St Ninian:

freedom of the seas is the biggest of them, so if someone uploads again some pictures of the ...of the seas, you know that you have to choose the freedom of the seas, because that one is most famous  ;)

we could use 'U.S Navy' ships;
or we could get in the free ships like ' cable ships , special purpose ships , tug's '
tugs : help ships to get into the port with line's..
and as scenery ...
we could use arabica ports ' Alexandrea(egypt) , Port Said(egypt) , Ashdod(israel) and Norfolk(U.S.A) OR
ARPAŞ  / İSTANBUL :
you can take a look at http://www.arpas-pilotaj.com.tr/ (http://www.arpas-pilotaj.com.tr/)here

as I can see we got some important ships in the game but I cant see the scenery well enough to play ...

I'm form the North Sea Supply side of the business,

So I would like to see the DSND Mayo or Stena Seawell they are DSV's (Dive Support Vessels) they have work in the North Sea for years and are DP class Vessels,

The New RNLI Tamar Class Lifeboat would be good as you incoroprate 2 vessels in one (She carries a Y Class Inflatable Lifeboat in the stern and the transom drops into the water to deploy) see attached links

How about a working version of those floating drydocks (the ones we have had since Shipsim 06). I like all the vessels so far including the updated ones from 06 but I would also like to see sail-able versions of the inland cargo ships and the small container ships (that we have come to know and like for over a year now.

I also suggest a modification to the car ferry 'Red Thingy' with VS propulsion units. I find that the walk around view lets me see all the direction and thrust meters as well as the controls. all this is necessary to see in order to sail properly;  so I would like to see special 'pop up' controls for this ship that include direction indicators (and a reminder which one is forward and which one aft.

The sim is really great and a worthy sucessor to Shipsim 2006 Good Work!

I'd say the Queen Mary or the imperator, but they are much of a muchess with Titanic really, and unless your a steamship boff they may get a bit boring, so I'm going to say a smaller vessel such as: The RMS City of New York, Gallia or Etruria. Etruria I would especially love to see as she broke the B.Riband twice, was the last compund and single screw steamship and my great Uncle captained her and the Umbria around the turn of the century. Although I would agree with Robville, as one of those sisters would look very impressive in the game! :)


Thanks, Sky.

Going on the QM2 in Sept on a cruise round the MED for 2 weeks, would be great to see her built for the sim, i will be taking lots of photos and video footage on the cruise so if any of that would be of help should anyone wish to build the model in shipsim then i could send some of it over after the cruise.

It was the tender to the 1st and 2nd class people at cherbourg! that would be nice to see! also what about the quenn victoria , quenn mary II or te queen elizabeth II some of cunard line's finest

Yes, I want to see the Nomadic too, I think she is a important equipment for the Titanic over Atlantic Mission. I wish for the Titanic Mission also steam tugboats in Southhampton and New York.

You can made a Mission with the following points:
starting at Solent area, using steam tugboats to positioning the Titanic for leaving the port.
then first Stop on open Sea (near Cherbouurg) Stop the Titanic. Go side by side with the Nomadic.
Notrh Sea, whatch the Icebergs...
arriving New York....

here are the Nomadic topic:http: www.shipsim.com/ShipSimForum/index.php/topic,225.0.html

Caledonian MacBrayne car ferries!   ;D They've got a great range of fleet from a 22m bow-loading ferry to a 101m RO-RO ferry. I'm not sure if they would allow their vessels on Ship Simulator though.

Also it would be nice if we have small passenger vessels such as the paddle steamer Waverley, Clyde steamers Queen Mary II, Duchess of Hamilton (a very beautiful ship) or King George V, etc.

I Agree

I want ...

- Waverley (has to be in original colours as if just out of the fitting out basin at A&JI of Pointhouse)
- Jupiter / Saturn (rothesay streakers (yes i know...but thats what they were/are called) CalMac)
- Caladonian Isles (brodick - adrossan, calmac)
- DTPS Talisman (DTPS - Disel Turbine Paddle Steamer)
- Hopeton (s.p) (specialist harbour tug based in edinburgh....VERY powerful from what iv heard)

I was hoping she was done for the new sim when i heard southhampton was being modelled, would have been great for the southampton scenerio to Newyork, i guess it would take quite a bit of time to model something like that, and how far do you go on what would be modelled for the walkround feature, something like the titanic in the way of areas you could visit and maybe the engineroom would be good?
Should have some good shots of the real thing after the cruise.

I bought the game last friday online, as far as i had time to play it  it look like a lot of fun but the engine takes up a lot of system resources, games like COunterStrike and Battlefield 2 run smooth on my ststem but this game lag's a lot.

-Freightships from the 1940´s to the 60´s (like the "Cap San Diego" in Hamburg)
-older Passangerships the S.S. United States or the S.S. France
-Steamships and Tugs
-old coaster Cargoships (they look like stretched Fisherboats)

but I am happy about every new Ship in the simulator.

Yes, it would also be great to have her fleet mates PS Kingswear Castle and (the ex Red Funnel ferry) Balmoral  included too...
http://www.waverleyandbalmoral.co.uk/balmoral/articles07/rye/index.htm

Waverley in particular is very famous having called at almost every pier/ harbour in the UK and her addition to the game would no doubt boost the sales of Shipsim in the UK. She would be a offer unique challenges to the sim in that being a paddle steamer she has completely different handling abilites from the modern vessels.

Perhaps for passenger ships/ferries such as Waverley a "keep to the timetable" style mission could be developed and included?

There is now a fantastic virtual tour of Waverley online at
http://www.billward.org/pages_wav/waverly.html

Also be sure to look at
http://www.billward.org/pages_ferry/map/map_ferry.html
and
http://www.billward.org/pages_waterbus/index_waterbus.html
and
http://www.billward.org/pages_kenil/start_kenil.html

to see why, Waverley's homeground in Scotland, the Firth of Clyde would be an ideal area to include in shipsim, in a relatively small area there are 11 different ferry routes including passenger & car ferries, waterbuses, a large seacat, a container terminal, a nuclear submarine base, tiny villages, towns, cities, victorian style piers, ferry terminals, fishing ports, drydocks etc

i aggree that a big modern cruiseliner would be great but i would rather they opened up more of the interior of the ships there already are. then if you get bored whilst sailing you could explore the ship instead of wandering away then coming back after half an hour lol :) it would be sooo gud if you could walk around some of the inside of the titanic for instance

You know, even though it was a great lakes vessel, not an ocean vessel, I wouldn't mind seeing the iron ore freighter Edmund Fitzgerald.

Here's something about it from wikipedia...

SS Edmund Fitzgerald (nicknamed "Mighty Fitz," "The Fitz" or "The Big Fitz") was a lake freighter that sank suddenly during a gale storm on Lake Superior on November 10, 1975. The ship went down without a distress signal in 530 feet (162 m) of water at 46°59.9′N, 85°6.6′W, in Canadian waters about 17 miles (15 nm; 27 km) from the entrance to Whitefish Bay. All 29 members of the crew perished. Gordon Lightfoot's hit song, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald", helped make the incident the most famous disaster in the history of Great Lakes shipping.

Also, here's some other info from wikipedia...

    * Length: 729 feet (222.2 m) oa
    * Beam: 75 feet (22.7 m)
    * Depth (D): 39 feet (11.9 m)
    * Net Register Tonnage (NRT): 8686
    * Gross Register Tonnage (GRT): 13,632
    * Deadweight tons (dwt) (capacity): 26,660 tons
    * Rated speed: 14 knots
    * Fuel: 72,000 gallons (273 m³) fuel oil
    * Builder: Great Lakes Engineering Works (River Rouge, Michigan)

Hi, the boat I would most want to see on the game is the Stena HSS Voyager which goes from Belfast to Stranraer. I go on it a couple of times every year. It has sisterships going from other places as well.
The smallest one out of HSS Discovery, HSS Voyager, HSS Explorer and HSS Carisma would probably be the Carisma.
There are loads of photos on www.simplonpc.co.uk. Scroll down to Ferry photographs then go to Stena Line HSS Ferries.

Though another ship which would be great would be the Stena Lynx 3 which is another fast ferry.It goes from Rosslare to Fishguard.Capacity, 650 passengers, 148 cars. It is a nice small fast ferry. It looks rather like the Seacat which used to go from Belfast also.
Title: Re: Wich vessels would you like to see added in Ship Sim in te future?
Post by: Bottman on August 16, 2007, 11:35:57
Hi Nathanael,

I agree, a car loading HSC would be great. Guess, the most suitable fast craft for several existing areas would be one of the wavepiercer type, as your mentioned Seacat or Lynx. The HSS 1200, serving Hook van Holland - Harwich, was withdrawn from service a few month ago and the somewhat smaller HSS 900 "Stena Carisma" connects Sweden with Denmark. But wavepiercer type fast crafts are not as purpose built as the Stena ones.

Cheers

Hi again,
Thanks for your reply bottman. I suppose another type of ship I would like on the game would be the P&O Portsmouth Express. It is quite big. It can reach speeds of up to about 41 knots. It sails from Portsmouth to Cherbourg in France. There are photos of it on www.simplonpc.co.uk again. Another one would have to be the Brittany Ferries Normandie Express which is such a nice cool boat ;D. Photos yet again on simplonpc.
Thanks,
Nathanael

What about a Cable Ship.. Like Alcatel's C/S Lodbrog... it has 4 thrusters 2 fore and 2 aft, 2 main engines, its a DP2 ship so it could be cool to add a DP consol to the controle.
I could easily see a mission where you have to repair a fiberoptic cable in the north sea or in the pacific
I have worked on that ship and know what a mission like that should include so if you need any help :o)

Yesterday I was working and came to me an original idea!!

It would be nice to have OIL SPILL RESPONSE vessel and missions.
May be it would be great to create a "disaster" mission in which black crude oil its all over the sea, and with one of the Vessels (could be a small supply or tug, or simply something like de patrol boat) the oil has to be collected or just captured with oil booms, skimmers, etc.-

Tomorrow when I am back on the office I'll post some pics so you understand what I mean!  ;)

Hi guys,
first time I post here; well, first of all, let me say that's a really nice simulator. I hope with time it will be improved even more, as it happened with Microsoft Flight Simulator (I'm a FS fan and I still remember Flight Simulator II, about 20 years ago). As for which vessel I'd like to see added, well, that's one I'd like to see:

(http://www.ayrshirescotland.com/ships/jahre/knocknevis.jpg)

Knock Nevis, former Jahre Viking, Happy Giant, Seawise Giant; the biggest ship ever made. I know there's already a tanker, but well... that's almost 500 m; even Latitude could look short compared to it. What do you think?
Ciao,

I think a lot of people will get bored manouvering it beceaus it reacts to slow.

The Knock Nevis isn't a ship, it is an FSO (Floating storage and offloading), but the Jahre Viking was a ship.
somebody allready modelled it for Virtual Sailor.


I would like some more indland ships and enviroments.

I know, but in my view it's not boring;  :) trying to manouver this giant and to tow it, could be tricky (which means fun, for me).

The Knock Nevis isn't a ship, it is an FSO (Floating storage and offloading), but the Jahre Viking was a ship.

Yeah, I know. I wonder if engines have simply been unmounted or if they're still there and that thing can still sail.

I am in the agreement with all that say " MORE CRUISE SHIPS " Having purchased 2008, I am
really missing my ADD-ON cruise ship OCEAN STAR. It is fine to run around in the little
stuff, but that is not where the challange is present. Getting large ships in an out of tight
moorings is the joy for me.

I am also very hungry for some decent bridge design. All the big ships have these great big
bridges and 3 controls with two monitors and the rest is plain. Where is the imagination in designing
a ship like that for the simulation.

The program also needs alot more missions and interactivity with those missions. One of the best
things Ship Simulator could do is open the add-on ability to users. That made Microsoft Flight Simulator
and Virtual Sailor the programs that they are.

Please..please..more Cruise Ships.

I love the program though!

Would love to see the Waverley,was on this ship. Some info--

Waverley

 Flagship of our fleet is the famous WAVERLEY - the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world. It is thought that this famous ship is probably the most photographed ship in the world!

Built on the Clyde in 1947 - to replace the original Waverley that sunk off Dunkirk in 1940, the Waverley was originally built to sail only between Craigendorran & Arrochar in West Scotland. It is amazing to think that she now sails right round Britain offering regular trips on the Clyde, the Thames, South Coast of England and the Bristol Channel with other calls at various ports & piers throughout the UK.

pieterurk,

Think we already have this vessel in SS2006 Add-On (I think it's called MV Agile in the game) but the cranes are non-operative. Someone on this forum mentioned that you can have the ships from SS 2006 Add-On put in SS2008 for free. I'm not sure if this is true.


Nice pics by the way!  ;D

Hi Paul! :)

This is a bit off-topic, but you can find the answer to your question here:
http://www.shipsim.com/ShipSimForum/index.php/topic,796.0.html

The SS08 version of the add-on isn't ready yet, but when it is, you can get it for free if you hold a SS06 add-on licence.

this might have already been discussed , what about inland waterway vessels? such as narrow boats or inland pleasure craft? i am a comercial skipper and command a 100ft inland passenger vessel on the upper thames. If you think driving a container ship into rotterdam is hard , try navigating a smaller vessel on the thames with 30 row boats and rowers and pleasure craft around who do not know either sound signals or the rules of navigation on the river, all that and your also in a non tidal waters but do have varying currents and wind to deal with.

I know, but in my view it's not boring;  :) trying to manouver this giant and to tow it, could be tricky (which means fun, for me).

Yeah, I know. I wonder if engines have simply been unmounted or if they're still there and that thing can still sail.
Ciao,

  Corrado

P.S. Another fine addition to SS ships could be the Glomar Explorer.


corrado , the engines will still be mounted and probally used to a limited point for power onboard. these large vessels are constructed around the engines due to there size . the ship is probally used as a loading unloading platform due to the life expectancy or a major fault in the engines , but with the hull and equipment still usable , this is common practice with older vessels before they eventually get scrapped at the end of there useful life.

i dont really know when... we have to ask permission to Baja Ferries Co. to use the name, ship and logos. it is based on a real ship (Stena Forwarder(2001) - California Star). used to be registered in Bari Italy, but Baja ferries bought her and is mexican now, Runs every day between La Paz and Topolobampo in the gulf of California. AFTER the permission (approved of course), start to prepare her for SS08. and is a long way home. But the team liked her.. so hopefully she will be playable, 8)

Dockwise Yacht Transport (DYT), the world's only float-on/float-off yacht transport service, has launched its newest ship, which will provide yacht owners with faster and more frequent delivery of their luxury power and sailing yachts across the Atlantic Ocean. The 685.7-foot (209 meters) Yacht Express, built at the Yantai Raffles Shipyard in China, has an official delivery date of May, 2007. It will be the largest vessel of its kind in the world, purpose-built with a semi-submersible dock bay that allows yachts of any size to be safely floated on and off as cargo. Yacht Express will join four other dedicated yacht carriers, all semi-submersible, in the existing liner service of DYT.

High sea towing ships would be great addons, beside the fact they are often nice and manouverable ships, they give lots of possibilities in terms of possible missions inside Ship Sim.

I have in mind the new Abeille Bourbon, which operates in France, in the North Sea, one of the busiest and most dangerous sea ways :

(http://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/fr/IMG/jpg/14-1-2.jpg)

80m long, 16,5m wide, 6m draft
fully loaded highest speed (wind 2bft) : 19,9 knots
fully loaded highest speed (facing wind 7bft and heavy sea) : 16,5 knots

4 main engines of 4000 kw each (total 16.000 kw / 21.000 HP)
bow thrusters : 2 x 883 kW
aft thruster  : 2 x 515 kW

towing capacities : two winches (200 tons pulling ability each)

And so on ... That's a really beautiful ship !

You're right on that point :) But that's the case for most of the proposals here, you can see lots of car ferries (quite similar to the PoR), tankers, cruise liners (similar to the ocean star of the addon which will be soon available), and so on ...

The gaming possibilites with tugs are (to my mind !) far more interesting than those of a supertanker which most of the time doesn't even enter inside the peers of harbours .

Yes, the Floating sheerlegs is great idea, but i thought on something other thing. Would be awesome to make, and drive the famous US Coast Guards fleet!
Just see it.. Sure, release in a new addon name maybe Coast Guards: SAR Seas
try to catch smugglers, search with 3-4 rescue boat a lost boat, or brings ships to safe place in storm..Surching ships and try to find illegal contents, This is just some ideas. The best if you make hidden checkpoints, and try to find the ships with binoculars, radar and i have an idea with a sonar. The US coast guards have lot of special wessels, just see the training sailship, in this site you see the ships(boats, cutters)
Well, they have 30 ships ;D
http://www.uscg.mil/datasheet/ (http://www.uscg.mil/datasheet/)
I remember the New York mod for Shipsim 2006, and was great to see the Coast Guard ship there.
Ok, this is only an idea, not more..But just why not payware addons, like in flightsim? Historical addons, and SAR addons, Tug addons etc?..
I thought on another idea the Surface Effect Wessel HSS, or a Surface Effect plane!

I modelled that particular paint from the picture with red letters spelling LA PAZ. the last three pictures (before Puerto Vallarta) are mine, you can see the credits. She is sailing today with baja ferries scheme

It would be great to see these older vessels (http://www.semg.org.uk/misc/steamer.html) addded to the Portsmouth Ryde route. They were not equipped with modern stuff like bow thrust etc and would entail using ropes more in docking in the traditional way.

 As a new member and user of shipsim, i wonder if possible that seeing there are missions around the solent ( southampton docks). that the developers might consider the Royal Fleet Auxiliary landing ships that use Marchwood terminal, such as Sir Galahad, Sir percival.

Moving the coromuel from the IA static ships to the active player ships would be a nice idea ! this little ferry seems very charming, and the 3D model looks quite good already !

Did you notice it, in some harbours ?

You can find the coromuel in all the harbours, since you have the  1.1 patch.

If you want to find her directly, try the mission "Fast Crasft Sightseeing in Hamburg" for example. The coromuel is a few hundred meters ahead of the starting point of your Red Jet, along the same peer.

Many thanks Denis,

I'm actually using SS2008 version 1.0 and have not updated to add-on 1.1 yet as I wanted to wait until bugs have been reported in the beta version. I understand VSTEP is hoping to release the final patch on 12th September, so I'm happy to wait until then.

Once again many thanks for telling me where to find MV Coromuel.

Best regards

What I would also like to see (and sorry, this is not a ship) is freedom to sail anywhere without the stupid "you've reached the end of the environment" thingy.  Just as you can take off from any airport in MS Flight Simulator, and fly all over the world without limits, so it would be good if we could continuously sail anywhere without interruptions.  ;D

i completely agree with this!!! it is soo annoying and i think i may have a problem with it! if comented on the problem though!

Flight sim is no where near as detailed as ShipSim. You only have to look at the environments to see how detailed they are. Plus they are huge and have a lot of Polygons.

Are you kidding? Just look at some payware or freeware addon for MS FS, not the default sceneries; they are waaaaaaay more detailed than SS08 environments. Not to mention that water is water everywhere, so no need for detail like in FS (mountains, etc); of course things changes if you want to simulate the bottom of the sea, but there's no need for it as we don't have submarines (yet). IMHO freedom to sail everywhere would be a very good idea, although I admit it will take some time to be realized.
Ciao,

  Corrado


Edit: Sceneries are only loaded when necessary, no need to load the whole world at once (after all, I think I read somewhere it's the same with the traffic: loaded only in the neighbourhood, simplified when not in sight).

What about Dockwise 10 (formerly know as Dock Express 10.)
This is a special transport ship. The DW 10 is specialy modified to transport complet container cranes.

A possible mission would be loading two cranes by Nellen Kraanbouw (Maashaven), transport them to Hamburg, New York, etc. And put them onto the quay side.

The ship is also capable of taking aboard floating materials but als have many other options.
It is probably a challenge to build the ship in Ship sim 2008 but to me it would be great, even worth paying for because there can be so many interesting missions to be build.

See also the website from dockwise:  www.dockwise.com  or   http://www.dockwise.com/vessels/docktype

I have a lot more information about these ships because I wrote a paper about heavy transport back in my school days. If more people are interested this might be interesting although I realize that the V steppers are overloaded with requests for ships.

Attached (I hope) are 2 photos of T.S. John Jerwood, the Jerwood is a sea caet training ship, she is 100 feet (30 meters) long and I think would make a fantastic model for ship sim, it is a different size to others in the sim also.

The Jerwood is twin engined, has twin linked rudders and a small hydraulically operated bow thruster.

If there is anyone on the forums in the UK with marine experience (MCA or RYA qualifications) the sea cadets are always looking for relief staff, PM or e-mail me for contact details.

With you on that, Captain.
A Water Tractor would be nice. In fact, any tugs.
I’d like to see historic ones going back to side-wheel steam towboats on the Hudson River through the “Little Toots” of Moran & McAllister in the ‘40s. With the dearth of New York ship assist tugs in the sim, it’s probably best Titanic didn’t get that far. :)
The bright spot is Fairmount Sherpa. I hope her new French owners will continue licensing to VSTEP, because they’ve ordered a pair of 300 tbp AHTs.

Got back from our cruise the wife and i, and got to say the trip on the QM2 was fantastic, did a mediteranian cruise from Southampton ;D
Cruised the Atlantic Ocean to
1.Vigo, Spain
Cruised the Meditiranian Sea to
2.Barcelona, Spain
3.Cannes, French rivierra
4.Civitavecchia for Rome, Italy
5.Alghero Sardinia, Italy
Cruised the Meditiranian Sea to
6.Gibraltar
7.Lisbon, Portuagal
Cruised the Atlantic Ocean until we arrived back to home waters then to Southampton :'(

Right back to what as i have said before, i would really like to see QM2 in it, here are a few photos of her i took while on our cruise.

Why oh why did they get rid of the ships from the 2006 version! Fine, add some new ones but to get rid of the old fishing vessel, motor yacht etc was a very retrograde move in my view!

Whilst I don't suppose a submarine would be possible (or would it!), I'd like to see some smaller vessels like mine sweepers, frigates, twin diesel motor cruisers and how about a yacht!

Hi!
I'd say a cruise ferry would be great. Why not adding Color Fantasy/Magic or for example a Viking Line or Silja Line ferry? I really love those ferries!

Post by: CUNARD on September 28, 2007, 16:59:32
We really need bigger ships in the sim, and not repeats of the same sort of ships, there seems to be a lot of people wanting small craft,fishing boats,or ferries, I know we have the titanic as an ocean liner but it would be nice for something more up to date in the way of an Ocean liner,or cruise ship.
Is there no interest in them ?, I know that they would take time to do as there would be much more to detail but at some point it would be great.

JDB,

They are planning an add-on (free) for ships which were in 2006 version. So in the last quarter of this year (to the best of my knowledge) you will be able to play SS2006 ships in SS2008!

Do a wee search on the forum and you should be able to find a few topics about this.

Well, I guess one could say that more or less every kind of ship which I might have thought of has been addressed here already ;D . But, just for the record: I personally would especially love to see a scenario involving any Scandlines ferries in the Baltic. Maybe the "Vogelfluglinie" or Rostock-Gedser, along with the appropriate vessels. I might even be willing to pay for such an add-on, provided it was well done.

Post by: Janver on October 05, 2007, 10:11:19
I think some relative small ships need to come in SS08. Like the blue/white with cranes of the add-on of 2006. Maybe a 18-21 knots feeder of around 150 meter; fairly easy to manoeuvre, still quite big and fast. For instance the 'Encounter' or 'Echo' owned by JR Shipping. Maybe if they are doing the 'Echo' you can also try to make the cranes moving so we can load/discharge with ship's gear.

Like I said in an other topic, the Mighty Servant 1 or 3 or similar ship. This ship is able to submerse to let oil rigs/yachts on board and take it over the ocean.

Of course the 'Rotterdam' cruiseship formely owned by Holland America Line should be in the Shipsim. This cruise ship has a great history, is beautiful and is now being restorated to serve later on as a congress/hotel in Rotterdam.

Also (betonningsvaartuig) 'Rotterdam' for laying buoys, if the name is too confusing you can also use the name 'Terschelling' which is the same type of vessel. Maybe it is possible to make missions for making your own fairway etcetera.

The Emma Maersk, I know what it is to sail on big ships(8750 TUE) IRL, but this one is off course much bigger again. Or the new 13.000 TUE ordered by Peter Dohle/Hamburg Sud(if I'm correct the design of Hyundai Industries & Germanische Lloyd) which has the bridge on 1/3 of the length and the engine on 2/3 of the length.

Then the name of this game would probably be "Ship Simulator Combat Simulator". :P

I rather stick to the idea about nautical simulation rather than navy combat/warfare simulation.
But of course VSTEP can always start to make a navy combat simulator (as a new game title) if this will sell better than Ship Simulator (since we humans like shooting, bombing, warfare games... strange enough in a world filled up with violence). :-\

What i have dreamed of for years it seems, is a sim where i can take out my own trawler/fishing boat from say the Shetlands for instance, and experience that which i have witnessed on the TV series 'Trawler Men'.  To go out in all weathers, boat bouncing about on 20 ft waves, trying to haul in the nets without falling overboard.  All from the safety of my own chair *smile*.  Quite frankly i'm scared of water that's taller than me, but i reckon a computor sim catching fish in the wild north sea would be infinitely more exiting than swanning about in a luxury cruise ship anyday. I have just aquired my Ship Sim 2008 and have downloaded the update and mission editor and i am totally hooked. It could be that living on the Solent has something to do it.  makes all the difference to recognise the surroundings don't you think.  Anyway i have managed to get various ships plying their trade up and down Southampton Water, and the I.O.W ferries are up and running too.  Brilliant, that msion editor.  Only wish the one in Rail Simulator was so easy to use, but that's another story.  One thing that's odd about Calshot Spit though.  I seem to be missing the castle!..Everything else is there..Odd!. Anyway  Thanks LightHouse for a brilliant sim, and please can you caome up with a scenario for a trawler.  Regards Brian.

I think what V-Step has done so far is pretty good, rather that just keep adding more of the same type of vessel eg let's have 20 ferries from different companies they have tried to give us ships which do as many different jobs as possible. I think that's the best approach as it gives a greater appreciation of the full range of maritime activities and consequently makes the game much more challenging, varied and rewarding.  If I were VStep I'd keep working on that adding fire fighting capabilities and incorporating the submerging heavy lifter Fairmount Fjell we saw in the early tech video etc

Why that reply??

Are you asking Vstep to make their game more expensive?
I agree, his reply is a little bit stupid. (tankers, cruiseliners and a fire boat are allready in the game)

But patches (with for example one add-on ship) should be free.

@Trains
Why add two more ships wich allready are in the game?

@sonarman
I couldn't agree more!
People keep asking for ferry's and cruiseliners!

What I would like to see added are Inland ships. Why?
It is verry challenging to manouver them, in and out of locks and to Navigate them trough busy channels and ports.

On inland ships, you really 'manouver' the ship. You don't just set sail to the sea and just hang there around doing allmost Nothing (except admiring the ship) but you really have to use your skills to manouver the ship.

If any of you use Trainz, an excellent railway simulator, you will know that as their community developed, talented members created locomotives, rolling stock, scenery etc. which are downloadable. The majority of it is free, but some of the creators charge for their work. Good for them, it takes many hours to create a complex item. At the end of the day, the choice is yours, accept what you are given with good grace, or pay.
I hope that this community develops in popularity, and creative folks do add to the ships available. It's early days yet though, let's keep positive.

More powerfull TUG's just like ASD and ore VS tug, really different than what we have in the game today.

Considering the particulars of the small tug in the game she is not the best option to assist the VERMAS and LATITUDE today also the Russian Tug she is not good maneuvarable to act properlly during handling those big ship's.
As humors shows that a big bulk carrier can come into the game is important to have more powerfull and agile tugs as the ASD tug wich todays had they excense of commands into the OCEAN STAR, so would be a bit easy for VS to creat this type of tug, is important that she must act with behavior of a 60 and or up to 100 tons bollard pull tug. With fwd and Aft towing winches.

hope VS will hear us with they good job :)

- Product tanker 110-150 metres length, 15-25 m beam, 7-9 m draught

- Feeder 100-150 metres, 15-25 beam, 7-8 m draught

- Small coaster 70-95 metres length

- Vermaas with NO containers - in ballast

More cargo ships rather than more small crafts like patrol boats and so on...

And yes - no "unclever" obstructions (like the missing window on the P&O Ferry making it impossible to see the bow from the bridge wings).

Me and a friend would like to see a boat like them they use on deadliest catch or a normally fishing boat :)
something like the fishboat in shimsim06 ;)
maybe a stonger tugboat to use in the harbours.
and maybe a yatch or sailboats..:)
If the fishboats is comming in to the game in the future we would be happy if it came missons with the boat. like fishing at night in hard weather.

And it doesent have mutch to do with this but I think it would be fun if it could be snow storms. and winter weather in some missions and in freeroaming:)
and that we could use the searching/navigation light on the boat:) that would be cool.:)
and a litlebit more realistic at nights so it was darker so we just could see the lights on the boat at the open seas;)

I think conspicuous by their absence in Ship Sim, especially on the Solent, are pleasure craft.  Now wouldn't a lot of you guys prefer to elbow the engines and use your sailing skill, using only the wind facility surplied on multiplayer. To have a pleasant day out sailing your yacht, or maybe compete in organised races even, say from the Hamble to Cowes for instance.  I guess the server owner would set the weather conditions, so all would be in the same boat 'scuse the pun..Guys who prefer engines (Inshore life boat for instance) could always stand by to fish out weekend sailors who capsize.  Just a thought.

That would indeed be nice. But it is my understanding that the wind has no effect on the ships in SS08 and that things like wind and currents and such will probably not be implemented untill the next SS.

So the sail would be quite useless, unfortunatly.
Title: Re: Which vessels would you like to see added to Ship Sim in the future?
Post by: Sam on January 02, 2008, 20:28:33
Well, I think sailing is verry complicated to implement.

Just to set sail and trim the sails isn't difficult, but the feeling you need for sailing wil never be possible to implement in the game.

And by the way, there allready are at least three companies who make sailing sims.
Virtual sailor
Virtual skipper
Sailsimulator

They have all allready done a great job.

I don't mind paying extra for additional features such as new ships or new enviroment if I really like them. Otherwise developers may see little point or incentive to make the Ship Sim game more enjoyable for us all. Plus they need to make an earning!

Even the National Health Service (NHS) is not free - we pay income tax & National Insurance towards it. Also there's no such thing as a free lunch - it just mean they want something in return from you! (as I have discovered too many times) ;)

When this topic have reached 50 pages I'm sure that it contain 50% of the world fleet that people want to see in the game. How many boats are suggested?
Well it will be a very long boat list that you can select from while picking a multiplayer ship or a ship for free roaming that's for sure :D

Maybe a dowmload base where people can upload their add-ons and where others can download them can be a nice feature in the future when this game finally supports "directly added add-ons"? ;)

You make it sound as if it is a good thing!!  ;D ;)

How many times I have raised my fist in anger towards the pc monitor after another poorly designed user-made addon make my sims crash/underperform/lock up/get messed beyond repair... I have lost count.

Granted, there's tons of good stuff to be downloaded for other sims, but the majority is sub standard and even though you follow all the advice in their respective readme files, it goes wrong so many times. I'd prefer a software developer releasing them so that we can be sure of quality, or - if a bug does slip through the net - get proper support.

Good. That makes sense ;D

So what is the purpose to have a Development Corner and some VDG thing then? To inspire 3D modelers and CG artists to make ships and boats for this game? Well, that's not gonna happen. Just a few people will contribute their 3D models to this game + the majority of Ketchup users. :D

Anyone who can produce a quality model that meets the stated requirements can submit it to VSTEP for possible inclusion in the game—possibly even get paid for their efforts.
The demands of this simulator are much higher than the train or flight simulators, and it is not practical to provide a way for third parties to fully integrate their creations into the sim.
The fact is that relatively few members have the skill necessary to meet the requirements.
The purpose of Developers corner, and NVDG, if there is a purpose, is to make information available to any serious modelers who want to play by the rules. Unfortunately it also attracts some self-deluding ketchup users.

Marty

So I am not aware of the culinairy awkwardness of it's lesser inhabitants..   :-X   my bad..  ;D

*Bows his head in shame*

Maybe a World War 2 Liberty or Victory ship

Or an Atlantic Convoy era T2 tanker.

On the tugboat side, they should include more modern tug and barge work for NY Harbor. The harbor tug used in this game is not what is seen in NY harbor at all... no company uses this type. Maybe a Moran or McAllister style tug that needs to move barges around in push gear or on the hip would be a sweet challenge.

Just get rid of what they have for tugs now and make it a real tug. The one in this game I have never even seen anywhere in real life. It's a mini Fairmount Sherpa, and it's obvious from experience in the game its underpowered.

Get some real nice tugs like these and oil barges with notches so we can do landings/movements from the hip or in a stern notch with pushgear. Tugs are the ultimate experience for seamanship and vessel handling.

Hi Capt. Marco,
You are looking at it. No one has yet gone through all the posts on this subject to compile a concise list for the forum. I doubt anyone wants to do that chore.
Presumably, the developers read the forum and compile their own list—which probably represents at least a 10-year backlog with their present resources.

Everyone shows pictures of big tanker's, tour boat's, tug-boat's and ferries.
There are already ships in this categories, look at this:

 - Big tanker's: vlcc latitude
 - Tour boat's: Taxi-boat,red jet 4
 - Tug-boat's: Small harbour tug, furie, elbe, russian tug, fairmount sherpa
 - Cruiser liners: P&Q pride of rotterdam, Ocean star
 - Ferries: Red eagle

I don't think vstep go make anymore ships in this categories because there are there already.

I choose more for something news,maybe 20-30 meter's motor-ships like this ones:

There may be one ferry, one cruise ship and one tanker in the game already but I think you need more as they all vary in size and handling.

I'd like to see

cross channel ferry like the norfolk line one
A large car carrier
Smaller tanker
another containership
High speed catamaran such as the Normandie express or the condor express
Another frieghter like the agile soloution.

There are so many different designs for ships even though they do the same job but they all look and handle very different with different controls that is where the skill should lie

Modern-day pirates are not at all cool. They sometimes murder the crew. Their ships are of many types—from speedboats to small freighters—and seldom fly the Jolly Roger. Piracy is a very real problem today, especially in places such as the Strait of Malacca.

Actually, it is not so important, which companies and vessels... But a new ro-ro ferry is required, like a new ferry route in one environment! The Solent, for example, is a great environment for ferry fares, but harbours are too shallow for larger vessel - Pride of Rotterdam... Therefore my recommendation is - Gulf of Finland with it's harbours Tallinn and Helsinki, or Dover - Calais route in one environment (without "open sea passages" in three different environments)!

Excuse my bad English, please! :D

hi all, first post on this here forum.

Just got myself that shipsimulator.
seeing those old RPA boats on the pictures placed here.
The RPA12 which is in game has been very well done.. still looking for the flashlight button :-)

I would like to see the ability for the RPA vessels to use their watercannons.

As for ships I would like to suggest some working RIBS with outboards and also one with a waterjet.
The Rotterdam Port Authority has one due soon and will soon be operational

and maybe that large vessel that the dutch customs uses.

well I'm patching as I type and alrdy ran in a strange thing since I had no luck trying to re-assign my control keys.. everytime I tried to double click on one to change it, for example my rudder the pc decided to change my Horn which is on the top of the list. Weird and frustrating.

will have another go after patching.

I don't really see a need for bigger! bigger! bigger! Perhaps the French Passenger ship Normandie of the 1930s/40s, or smaller WW2 era cargo ships, like Victory, Liberty, or T2 tanker vessels. If they bulk up on tugboats, they should use the classic NY Harbor tugs and put barge work in there, and not have vessels sink when they rub up against each other like in SS08. There have been HUNDREDS of times where vessels I worked on rubbed against another one of the same size with barely a mark made between them (helloooo barge work??)

Pride of Bilbao- to do the same as above. (although similar to POR) would be nice to see it.pic.4
Ro-pax- like this one or one of Stena's big new ones.pic.5
HSS- another HSC I know but a great piece of kit, can run out of Rotterdam.
Car carrier-they look shoe boxes but beauty isn't everything.

I KNOW IT SANK 1994, AND THERE WHERE MANY PEOPLE THAT DIED SO I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT NO OFFENSE TO THE RELATIVES WHO LIVES!!!!

I have been my self on M/S Estonia, and when it sailed by the name Viking Sally.

I would like it in the simulator bqs it was an lovely ship, not bqs it sank!!
Buy the way, it didn´t sink bqs off the weather... the ship would float up side down a while before it sank.. most have been an leak (hole) under the water line!!

Actually it would be a bad style - to create a sunken ferry in the game... but maybe the idea is not so bad - M/V Estonia in Ship Simulator can be like a monument for people, who died in accident... M.V Estonia was an old ferry and not so modern! There is a one wreck - S/S Titanic... you want another one? I think the better way would be to create some of existing legendary Baltic sea ferries - M/V Mariella, or M/V Silja Serenade... or M/V Silja Europa or something of Tallink's new ferries!

Post by: phil ciborowski on March 28, 2008, 03:09:44
All the suggestions so far have been great, but to me the greatest ships to add on to the sim are ones with some historical value to them.  I would pick the following (not listed in any real order)

Carpathia, Normandie, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary, France, Canberra, Queen Elizabeth 2, Andria Doria, Michelangelo,  United States, and NS Savannah.

We all know what those ships look like, but for some of the more obscure ships i would love to see :

The Admrial : (http://www.maritimematters.com/images/dq-admiral.jpg)
The Aquarama : (http://blog.mlive.com/chronicle/2007/09/Aquarama.jpg)
The Badger : (http://www.mackinac.org/media/images/2003/v2003-12a.jpg)
The Ticonderoga (http://www.vermonter.com/images/shelburne/DSC01777.jpg)

And one that has a lot of special, personal memories and meaning to me:
The Mount Washington :The origional before she burned (built from the sistership of the Ticondaroga)
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c9/Steamer_Mt._Washington%2C_Lake_Winnipesaukee%2C_NH.jpg)

maybe one of those boats that fills up with water and then lowers the whole boat and then the deck is under water so a bunch of boats float over the deck,then the boat dumps all the water and lets the boats over it's deck rest on it's deck that now is out of the water ;D that i think would be aswome :o

A common misconception. LNG tankers are probably the safest ships out there. I escort these tankers on a weekly basis and have been to a school for fighting fires on them. Someone once got an idea that they are very dangerous and now everyone just believes it. I would like the chance to drive one though.

Someone once got an idea that they are very dangerous and now everyone just believes it. I would like the chance to drive one though.

Then why is it that when they are offloading/loading LNG, there is a "halo" around their position where NO vessels may enter without proper authorization (I think I remember something like 2Nm, could be wrong though).  If something were to hit that baby, thats a big big boom, and a huge black eye to commercial shipping. 

They are safe because of the rules/laws in place to protect them =]
Title: Re: Which vessels would you like to see added to Ship Sim in the future?
Post by: bosuntrudy on April 11, 2008, 21:27:23
I agree with you about them being safe due to the security zone set around them. It's supposed to be 3 miles ahead, and 1 mile abeam and astern. In my port, the zone around the tanker while offloading is 400 yards, which extends accross the river onto land, but boats are still allowed to transit through.

The study that details all the danger involved was formulated around a lot, repeat a lot, of assumptions. To get the ideal circumstances for an explosion are very nearly impossible outside of a laboratory. Oil tankers and tankers carrying gasoline present a much bigger threat, both damage wise and environmentally.

By the way, if you spray water on LNG, the water explodes into flying icicles. Pretty cool actually.

I think more trawlers and more general cruisers would be a good idea, for example adding a Colvic or some sort of motor cruiser like that wouldn't do any harm. Adding some more general trawlers would be healthy for the game in my opinion and also maybe adding some charter boats would be wise, just basicly expanding the range of ships and building on the successful ones too.

Kind Regards

I for myself would like to see some more big yachts. Such like we had in the 2006 edition. Like others I even ask myself why they didn't put it into the 2008.   I know it isn't very easy to get plans of such "boat", because the yachts of a size, bigger than 50m are mostly some kind of "top secret". But it isn't impossible. So I really would like one, two, trhee more .. haha.

I suspect thats because that's all most people see these days.   Most maritime industrial shipping operations and movements happen away from the public eye...   Now what I would like to see are some old fashioned general cargo (that's break bulk for the younger generation) vessels such as those owned and sailed by the Ben line or  Bank Line etc; going around the globe; taking goods from UK/Europe via Panama to the South seas  and Australasia and bringing back everything; perhaps one with heavy-lift jumbo derricks.  Now that would be a mission.

Or, and here's a thought...   a Liberty Ship...

I would be happy to see a number of the vessels described above, especially the cargo versions, what I would not like to see is the conclusion of military vessel, this has been done before and once these vessels were installed aling came the requests for Guns that Fire, Misiles that can be Launch, Torpedo firing ability for Submarines, I saw the result of this mixture and quite quickly disengaged myself from the programme on hearing why such things would be great if they were included.

I would like to see this boat...

(http://growabrain.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/boat.jpg)

...with super-realistic highly sophisticated bridge and realistic decks where I can run around and talk with all passengers so they really know who is the captain. I want some ultra-realistic smoke from the funnel and a noisy horn so I can scare the *** out of all close trafficking just to show them who is the boss and who is not  violating the COLREGs. I also want a super-hypersonic realistic engine that runs so fast that Michael Schumacher is getting upset.

Beside this is the most highly-sophisticated cruise ship that you can watch for real in year 2020. It's so big that the Queen of Britain have to crawl up in the Eiffel Tower to get a full view of the whole ship. Because of it's enormous photo realistic hyper-real 3D design and texturing you need a computer that can run 10 copies of Crysis at the same time to see the ultra-realistic computer and science breaking graphics developed by VSTEP.

The only cool thing with this ship is that you don't need a confirmation from the Cunard to design it or use it in a computer game (or was it simulator). So I'm sorry to say it folks but I don't think that you EVER at all will see any Cunard ship in this game. Maye Mikey Mouse can help you... :P

Being from the Great Lakes area, I would love to see some of the "ore boats", as we call them, as well as some of the area to sail them in.  The St. Marys River would be a fine location to offer.  It has sea going vessels, as well as the lakers sailing it.  It contects Lake Superior with the lower lakes, and has plenty of recreational traffic as well.  Plenty of resources to make many a fine mission for the players..from tight handling of large freighters through the locks at the Soo, Pilot transfers, to pleasure boating..with a few tour boats thrown in.  I watch ships there all the time, and I have attached a few photos which I took last weekend.  I hope you enjoy!!

otherwise i hope Vstep would think about it, it would be awsome to have the mighty QM2 in the game she is a real beauty!  :)   (if this is not possible than use the poseidon of mr robville, great model too or maybe the first m/s queen mary)

secondly a old t2 tanker with some rust on te outside with allot of smoke coming out of the funnel!

Can't really be bothered to read through all 31 pages so apologies if I repeat any...

P&O Cruises Oriana (IMO the best-looking modern cruise ship)
USS Nimitz
HMS Warspite - the WW2

The only wrong thing about that is that, unfortunately warships will not be added to this ship simulator :-X, because that will be a totaty different thing.

There are people who want aircraftcarriers

i think when they put an aircraftcarrier in shipsim , people probably wants airplanes in shipsim so that they can fly when they are sailing an aircraftcarrier , but its isnt a COMBATSIMULATOR  :P ::) :D ;D ;)

We can all think of and name many ships, as we all have favourites, but why do we need so many Ships, lets just keep what we have and include smaller and medium sized version, with the updated Wheelhouses with the necessary instrumentation and Light Facilities. If we stuck to this Idea the improvements of ship sim could become more frequent and more reliable, but not forgetting realism. Of course the additon of one or two different types of Ship would be a bonus. But Warships NO NO NO

Again, I would love to see any of the worlds coast guards in an expansion or new edition of shipsim. I think that would cure alot of people want to have warships in the game. Just with the US Coast Guard you have missions running from interdiction of smugglers and alien migration to aids to navigation repair and placement and fisheries. This isn't even counting the biggest and most exciting of the Coast Guard missions, search and rescue. I would love to see some of the new USCG Cutters included or the patrol boat fleet of 110' cutters and 87' cutters.

Having had a good look at the American Coastguard vessels in close up, I can only submit that they depict the perfect Warship in disguise, and there inclusion would lead to the inevitable slippery slope.

You might be right, but honestly I can't tell you the last time we actually fired the main gun in something other then a training eviroment. If that is the case no warships, limit it to small boats and patrol cutters, or other coast guards, such as the Canadian Coast Guard or HM Coastguard, which are not a military force. I would love to see more SAR mission in the game.

I agree there are enough wargames out there already, that is the beauty of this game is it shows the everyday merchant mariner life. I would hate to see any weapons added to the game and there is more to being a sailor then combat and this game really shows that. The only reason I would want to see any coast guard or patrol type craft is to see more of the SAR type missions not for combat

Hiya all :)

I'd like to point something out here.  We all have different opinions, that's what makes us individual.  Every member on the forum is entitled to their opinion, and being criticised for having an opinion is not something any of us would like, agreed?

Perhaps a more relaxed attitude to others opinions would be more appropriate :)

Would love to see them in the simulator and be able to 'sink' them while pulling an oil platform over them with two tugs... Yeah !!

Oops. I got carried away... but still. a heavy lift would be nice...

More emphasis on tug/barge operations, perhaps in NYC.

The "sinking cause you rub against another ship" feature is really silly. So are the missions with two tugs needed. I end up lashing them together and towing with one boat only.

Ships I would like to see added to shipsim:

2.  Smaller AHTSVs - 60t-80t bollard pull
3.  Multi role support/supply vessels with bow mounted helidecks and sat diving + moonpools
4.  Hook up accomodation / construction barges with dedicated AHT for manouvers
5.  AHTs in general
6.  User controllable SELF PROPELLED semisubmersible drilling rigs (6th gen with DP3)

And....

7.  For PSVs and AHTSVs a DP console would be cool

As many people have already suggested a suction dredger, like the Donald Redford that gets mentioned on the radio chatter in the Solent. Would need the environment extending North and South a few miles though, she operates out of Fareham reach, to the North of Portsmouth Harbour, and tends to dredge in the Nab area off the East coast of the Isle of Wight.
Other than that an old tramp steamer, one of my favourite maritime books is still Ocean Tramp.

Rather than go through all 30+ pages to see if they are already mentiond, I'll just go ahead and add my wish list...

Fishing boats (and missions)...perhaps a crab boat as seen on the TV show 'Deadliest Catch'

Unlimited Hydroplanes...and proper racing missions suitable for these.

Already in game is the Off Shore Powerboat...but some proper racing missions for it would be appreciated (preferably in open ocean with large swells).  The jumps and such missions for these are a bit silly IMO.

I'd like to see the small inflatable on the rescue boat able to be used for rescues etc.

Some kind of Coast Guard fast interceptor boat and some 'smuggling' missions.

I agree with yann 56. I would also very much like to see one of the Brittany Ferries, featured in this sim. I think the Pont Aven would probably be the best one. I'm a regular passenger on these ferries, so it would be really nice. It would also be fantastic to have at least one French port and one English port, that these ferries operate from, but I guess that may be asking a bit too much LOL!!! ;D ;D

Hi Juriss,
They are actually called “semi-submersible lift” to distinguish them from heavy-lift vessels like the Jumbo Javelin, which is a much larger edition of an “Agile Solution” type.
VSTEP has been considering a Fairmount semi-sub, Fjell, but that requires solving the general variable-draft problem. It may need to wait for SS 2009.

FOYEN, VSTEP is doing the Jumbo Javelin mentioned above. I can’t say that it will be released anytime soon. As for a floating crane, a sheerlegs, like SMIT's Asian Hercules II, would be nice.

We need the R/V Akademik Mstislav Keldysh! It's THE research vessel for visiting the wreck of the Titanic! ;D

It was the research vessel that James Cameron's film "Titanic" took place on, and the research vessel that carries the submersibles MIR 1 and MIR 2! It's also the vessel that lead to the 2006 theory of Titanic's sinking, as it was the MIR submersibles that found the 2 intact pieces of Titanic's hull!

It would be a funny paradox to have both the Keldysh and the Titanic together ;D

I don't see a reason why it shouldn't be in Ship Simulator!

Because I watch alot of Science Fiction, like "Doctor Who", :) I'm into the way things in reality fit if you mess them up...

If the Titanic is in the game and still floating, Then Ship Simulator is in a different universe where it never sunk. Then there was no need to even build a R/V. :o  I know it's just a game so messing with the time space continuim in Ship Simulator won't take Terry out of existance or make me the vice president of Llamas and not the lord. ;)

uhmm, the Research Ship for the wreck of the Titanic was the RS Knorr
But the MIR 1 and MIR 2 submersibles are considered some of the, if not, the best subs for Titanic visits nowadays!

The R/V Knorr may have found it, but its actual mission was to find 2 nuclear US Cold War submarines that sank and make sure America's enemies didn't get their hands on the nuclear sections of the wreck. Finding the Titanic was not the main purpose, but it made the perfect cover-up! ;D
Title: Re: Which vessels would you like to see added to Ship Sim in the future?
Post by: Mad_Fred on August 26, 2008, 02:18:54
Well that is not entirely true.

Dr. Ballard's main goal was to find the Titanic, but he needed a lot of funds, and the US Navy agreed to fund it, when he requested funding from them, but with the condition that Ballard first would go out and locate the sunken U.S. Navy submarines Thresher and Scorpion for them.

Once he found and photographed them, Ballard went on to the 'main quest', so to speak.

So the actual mission for Robert Ballard and Jean-Louis Michel and their team was finding the Titanic. Locating these subs was a priority for the Navy, not for Ballard, but he could not have done it without the Navy's backing and funding. You make it sound like he accidentally came across it whilst on another mission, this is not the case, nor is there a cover up, really.

I'm not keen on people still going down there for tourist visits and taking bits off of the wreck and so on, to be honest though.

Regards,
Fred

Post by: mvsmith on August 26, 2008, 02:55:43
They were two entirely different operations. As Fred said, the US Navy paid for Bob’s expensive toys—which he developed for them at Woods Hole. While on active duty, it was the Navy that sent him to WHOI to pursue his post-graduate work. He holds a reserve commission in the Navy and does odd jobs for them.
The idea that the Titanic search was a cover up for his sub hunt is ridiculous.
Incidentally, I  rode R/V Knorr from Woods Hole to Reykjavik on the first leg of expedition GEOSECS, after installing an IBM 1800 computer —on loan from SIO—aboard her. At that time, she still had fore & aft VSPs like her sister R/V Melville.

For the Titanic search, Knorr carried unmanned, tethered, robotic submersibles and a benthic sled with side-looking sonar. It was his later return on R/V Atlantis carrying the manned submersible Alvin that did extensive exploration. John Cameron also produced much scientifically valuable video and other data while filming “Titanic”.
Tourist visits and “salvage” attempts are an obscenity.

For those who can’t remember back to the fall of 1985, a quick summary:
Knorr had spent three weeks, 24 hours a day, looking at the sea floor with magnetometer, side- and bottom-looking sonar, and a video camera on Argo—a robotic vehicle flown from the control room on Knorr.
This monotonous boustrophedonic sailing came to an end 0048 hours on 1 September when Stu Harris noticed what appeared to be a circular object on his video monitor.
Bob Lange, the Argo pilot, steered in for a closer look until they could see rivets and then three furnace doors. It was a single-ended boiler from Boiler Room 1.

While MIR 1 & MIR 2 are good vessels, and worked well for Cameron, they are hardly unique. They are certainly not the first manned submersibles to visit the Titanic. It’s a shame to see them used in the grubby tourist trade.

Since 1964, Woods Hole has operated Alvin, a Human Occupied Vehicle (to use the designation of her owner, the US Navy). Alvin is usually called a Deep Submergence Vehicle, and is the world’s first of her type. She has made well over 4000 dives, in many parts of the world, at depths down to 4,500 meters.
She carries three people, including the pilot. Her dives last as long as ten hours.
She is maneuvered by six reversible thrusters, and returns to the surface by dropping steel weights.
Her equipment includes 30 cm-thick viewports, metal halide lights, video cameras, two robotic arms, and a basket for treasure.

Alvin made eleven dives to Titanic in 1986. On his last dive, Ballard placed a bronze plaque on Titanic’s stern.

It’s a fast patrol boat like those used to harass our ships. The name is a corruption of Boghammar, the Swedish manufacturer of one type.

Here's what I feel would be the best choice for an ASD tug being added to the game....

We already have the Bugsier 2 (our tractor tug), so if we ever get an ASD tug, I reckon it should be Bugsier 6.

(http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2008/09/29/article-1063793-02D42D4C00000578-941_634x841.jpg)

That's her towing out the (as of right now) world's biggest cruise liner, 'Celebrity Solstice'.

So far (if all these ships where made for the game) we will have 918 vessels to select from :P
Probably just 5% of all these 918 will be added. Others will not be added because the ship owner don't want to cooperate with VSTEP.

I loaded the Elbe and the Furie, fantastic!!!

I hope to see more additions from the shipyard soon.

Dan, those classic ocean liners from the 1940s-1950s, such as the Queen Elizabeth and the United States, would be super additions. I get confused however with the controls on the modern ocean liner in NH, I find the helm and telegraph system much easier than the pod controls. Otherwise those would be super choices.

I'd love to be on the S.S. United States, breaking 38.3 knots!!!!

Not quite.  Olympic was refitted with extra lifeboats and bulkheads in the wake of the Titanic disaster.  Britannic was launched in 1914 but was only used as a hospital ship since she was sunk in 1916, and had those large crane-like davits and more bulkheads to prevent what happened to Titanic.

But apart from the two visible things (davits and lifeboats) they are pretty similar in shape and design (from a  game point of view, ignoring the bulkheads)

It's not a cruise ship, ocean liner, it's an ocean liner! cruise ship!

I perfer the pre-Titanic disaster Olympic

But apart from the two visible things (davits and lifeboats) they are pretty similar in shape and design (from a  game point of view, ignoring the bulkheads)
The differences don't stop there! There is a cowl vent on the port side of the 2nd funnel on Titanic that Olymic didn't have, the Olympic didn't have the closed foreward A deck prominade of Titanic, meaning the windows wouldn't be there if it was Olympic, the B deck windows on Olympic's side were evenly spaced out, unlike Titanic, as Titanic had additional rooms along her side that Olympic didn't, and the differences go on and on, as the 2 ships had a 1,004 ton weight difference!

In fact, from the bridge you could see one, that being where Titanic had a cowl vent, Olympic had an air shaft aft near the breakwater, and no cowl vent on her forecastle.

Greetings from Western Canada.

I know this game is more European based, but I'd like to suggest some things from this side of the world. Here in British Columbia, we have one of the largest Ferry fleets in the world, and are able to call our newest additions to the BC Ferry fleet, the largest Double ended ferries in the world. They were built in Flensburg Germany just last year, and are beginning to fit in with the rest of the fleet now. They are called, the Coastal Renaissance, Coastal Inspiration, and Coastal Celebration. There are also another 30+ vessels in the fleet that are worth looking at. If you'd like to see what our ships look like, have a browse through my website and find out.

Just because i m a FERRY & CRUISE LINER Lover i just wish to handle in more realistic mean these cind of vessels.
AZIPODS-WaterJets-CPP etc.
In the new version you see that something is wrong when you have 45 dg to Port/Stbd full ahead/astern Bow Thruster to full and the RoT is 30 or 45 unfortunately.
Another example is with the OCEAN STAR when you turn one pod 90 dg (vertical)and full power and the Rot is once more dissapointment ???
The controls i have to highlight that is quite smart inthe cruise liner and the ferry except the Jet Ferry with the Water Jets Propultion which is an other disapointment :-[
Hope that our guy will do his mirracle and improve - upgrade the simulation

IMHO, we dont need warships in SS....This isnt a combat simulator... this is a shiping simulator.

Granted it would be nice to take a large tonnage warship out but unless you are stalking prey, there is really no point to having on in this program..


Large passenger liners, freighters, etc are what this is about- i think that we should have classic liners like QE, QM, QE2, Andrea Doria, Carpathia, Lusitania, France Normandie, United States... we should be able to re-create the Blue Ribband runs by famous ships of the past...  have us do Coast Guard missions in famout storms/hurricanes...  maybe even the final run of a famous ship- leaving her home port for decomissioning..

Personally - Id love to take a liner out of drydock, down the river and out into the sea to give her a proper sea trial... Or even launch day- have an unfinished ship slide down the ways, and let us tugboat captians pull and push her to the fitting out wharf.

There are tons of ships that we could want, but i think that the military ships dont fit into the general idea of this simulation.

Love SS 2006 game. for Ideas for the 2008 game How about Thomas J.Morse a Deep Sea Ocean Rescue Tug 250 feet in length, 5000HP diesel powerplant, and capable of towing 20,000 tons of deadweight at 10 knots for 2,000 miles without running out of fuel, (One of the tugs in the Raise the titanic! book), my second request is the HMS Rodney  strictly for the steaming and exploring possibilities.

Thanks for your consideration

I would like to see the Icebreaker Yamal.


The N.S Yamal (Russian: Яма́л) is a Russian Arktika class nuclear powered icebreaker operated by the Murmansk Shipping Company. It is named after the Yamal Peninsula in Northwest Siberia; the name means End of the Land in the Nenets language.

Laid down in Leningrad in 1986, and launched in October 1992, after the end of communism in Russia, she never filled her designed role of keeping shipping lanes open. She has always carried passengers on arctic excursions. Yamal took an excursion to the North Pole to celebrate the Millennium. Yamal is the 12th surface ship ever to reach the north pole.

The Yamal is equipped with a double hull. The outer hull is 48 mm thick where ice is met and 25 mm elsewhere and has a polymer coating to reduce friction. There is water ballast between the inner and outer hulls which can be shifted in order to aid icebreaking. Icebreaking is also assisted by an air bubbling system which can deliver 24 m³/s of air from jets 9 m below the surface. The Yamal can break ice while making way either forwards or backwards.

Yamal is one of Russian "Arctic" family of icebreakers, the most powerful icebreakers in the world. These ships must cruise in cold water to cool their reactors, so they cannot pass through the tropics to undertake voyages in the Southern hemisphere.

Yamal carries one helicopter and several Zodiac boats. Radio and satellite communications systems are installed which can provide navigation, telephone, fax, and email services. Amenities include a large dining room (capable of holding all 100 passengers in one sitting), a library, passenger lounge, auditorium, volleyball court, gymnasium, heated indoor swimming pool, a sauna, and an infirmary. She is equipped with 50 passenger cabins and suites, all with toilets, exterior windows, a television, and a desk.



It's specs.(To tell you about the ship and my N.S Savannah isn't exactly detailed right)

Length: 150 m (136 m at waterline)
Breadth: 30 m (28 m at the waterline)
Draft: 11.08 m
Height: 55 m keel to mast head
Displacement: 23,455 t
Maximum speed: 22 knot (44 km/h)
Cruising speed: 19.5 knot (36 km/h)
Crew: 150 (including 50 officers and engineers)
Passengers: 100, in 50 cabins and mini-suites
Power plant: two OK-900 171 MW nuclear reactors
Propulsion: two steam turbines driving 6 generators, total 75,000 hp (55.3 MW)


In my opinion this ship to will be a great addition to SS because in the next SS there will be antartica so why one Icebreaker when you can have 2 Icebreakers.       

Wouldn't that be great!

These pics below show her on all of her Expedition's.

I would love to see any vessel that has a large interior; if there's one thing that I love about ships, it's exploring the inside of them!

So I wouldn't mind seeing a larger ship that can be explored upon the inside a bit more; I think that the icebreaker a couple posts above me would be a fun one. Or perhaps the interior of Titanic could be increased somewhat?

CUNARD: UMBRIA, ETURIA (last singlew screw iron hulled Cunarders rigged for sail), CAMPANIA & LUCANIA

WHITE STAR: TEUTONIC, BRITTNIC 2 OCEANIC. These were the last White Star ships built to compete with Cunard on speed. When Isamy Sr. steeped down J. Bruce changed the emphasis to good service speed and luxury The "Big Four" (CELTIC, CEDRIC, BALTIC, ADRIATIC) were nest to be followed by Olympic, Titanic and Gigantic BTW Capt.

One ship I'd want in the game would be the RMS Mauretania of 1907. She was one of the fastest of the ocean liners in the early 20th century, holding the Blue Riband from 1907 to 1929 (the Bremen snatched the Blue Riband on her maiden voyage). She was beloved by many people in her day and many people were dismayed to see her be sent off to be scrapped; one of whom was Franklin D. Roosevelt who thinks she should have been taken out to sea and sunk whole, giving her a *Viking's funeral*. Either her or the Queen Mary 2 should be added. We need some classic Atlantic liners besides the Titanic and the Titanic needs some upgrades (Grand Staircase anyone?).

Well I know that but most ships don't have RMS or MV or MS included in the name on the bow, it just looks silly.

Royal Mail Ship
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Royal Mail Ship (sometimes Steam-ship, Steamer), usually seen in its abbreviated form RMS, is the ship prefix used for seagoing vessels that carry mail under contract by Royal Mail. They have the right to fly the pennant of the Royal Mail when sailing.[1][2][3]

The designation has been used since 1840.[4] It was used by a many shipping lines, but is often associated in particular with the Cunard line[5][6] and Royal Mail Lines, which held a number of high-profile mail contract business, and which traditionally prefixed the titles of all their ships with the initials "RMS". The Canadian Pacific Railway's trans-Pacific Royal Mail contract required the construction of the first three of a fleet of steamships—the RMS Empress of China, the RMS Empress of India, and the RMS Empress of Britain which regularly sailed between Vancouver and Asia beginning in 1891.[7]

While some lines, particularly the Royal Mail Lines, called all their ships RMS, technically a ship would use the prefix only while contracted to carry mail, and would revert at other times to a standard designation such as "SS".[8]

Originally the Admiralty operated these ships.[9] In 1850 contracts were awarded to private companies. The most valuable route, with the highest volume, was between Kingstown (now Dún Laoghaire), in Ireland, and Holyhead in Wales. The City of Dublin Steam Packet Company (CDSPCo) won the contract and purchased RMS Saint Columa and RMS Llwywllyn from the Admiralty.

Having the title "RMS" was seen as a mark of quality and a competitive advantage, because the mail had to be on time. In the 1860 CDSPCo contract there was a penalty clause of £1 1s 4d for every minute's delay. The White Star Line RMS Titanic was a Royal Mail Ship.

In recent years the shift to air transport for mail has left only two ships with the right to the prefix; RMS St Helena, which serves the island of Saint Helena in the South Atlantic,[10] and RMS Queen Mary 2. QM2 was conferred "RMS" by Royal Mail when she entered service in 2004 on the Southampton to New York route as a gesture to Cunard's history.[11]

 
Royal Mail aircraft marking.The Royal Mail continues a form of this tradition on modern day airliners. The UK's flag carrier airline, British Airways is contracted to carry mail on some of its scheduled long-distance routes. Aircraft operating these routes with the facilities to carry mail are allowed to display the Royal Mail's logo and crest on their fuselage, usually alongside their registration markings.

The less common designations RMMV, for Royal Mail Motor Vessel, and RMMS, for Royal Mail Motor Ship, were used for a period when RMS was restricted to steam-ships. Motor Ship indicates that propulsion is provided by diesel rather than steam. The designation TS as in TSMV before the name of the vessel would indicate that it was driven by twin screws. The TS designation was also used for the Turbine Ship - "TS Bremen".

MV stands for MOTOR VESSEL

I think Firestar was just pointing out the fact that most vessel designers dont put their title on the hull with the name, ussually just the name.

As a suggestion(possible add-on) why not add a fishing boat or two to the simulator theme? since they too share the oceans blue. Just a suggestion, 8)  you guys who do the graphics could create a fishing boat simulator. :evil:  The object is to see how fast and safe purse seining or trawling /trolling can be done and you would take the catch to either a tender or dockside canary for offloading. Too me it would be cool :D , but what do I know ??? . I am just a boat-head vying the seas, catching what I can and moving big ships. Let me know what you think :thumbs:  insults to walk the plank are just as welcome, they too are an acknowledgement. Thank you and may you stay afloat with God speed :angel: :captain:

If you get the Collectors edition of SS 2008 you will have "New Horizons" already included. The game is well worth getting as it is a great improvement on SS2006. I think you will find it great fun.

I'd like to see some Search And Rescue cruisers from the German Lifeboat institution (DGzRS). For example the 46-m-vessel "Hermann Marwede"

It would be nice to have the new 20 and 36 meter class. The last one, SK 32 is under construction and should be ready in 2012.
The Picture shows the 20 m Class.

Well, any class of the DGzRS is interesting. Knowing the "Hermann Helms" stationed in Cuxhaven I'd love to have this class as well. Concerning the 20m-class I'd rather prefer 23m-classes or higher because of more manoeuvrability as they have two up to three main engines.

Add to that also the ones that fly (hovercrafts, ekranoplans), the ones that go underwater and the ones that stay on ground (grounded ships & oil rigs) - so we have an army of Vstep robots trapped in their office.

i will have these 2 they are 2 fishingvessels as you can see but they are not hektrawlers but sidearm fishermen and as far as i know is this the only shipping company who have these they`re called wiron 1,2 (52M) and the wiron 5,6 (56M) these fishing vessel dont tug there nets but it is between them like the little animation below (yes its a ugly animation but it is for the people to give them a look how it works).

its nice for multiplayer or missions

she operated in Washington state's Puget sound, she was on the Seattle-Bremerton route. she operated from the 1930s to the 1960s. M/V Kalakala is the first streamlined ferry and there is no other ferry like her.

M/V Kalakala is believed to be the first vessel to implement the use of electric-arc welding to fabricate its shape. this technique, perfected on Kalakala, would prove vital to our nation’s defense as we prepared for and subsequently entered world war. The lessons learned in the construction of her superstructure would be used in the construction and repair conducted at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, local shipyards and fabrication facilities nationwide. It has been said that were it not for the welders which applied welding techniques used on Kalakala, the United States would not have been able to recover so quickly from the devastation wrought by Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor.

Although the company wished the vessel to be known as the Silver Swan, the vessel soon attracted other, less complimentary nicknames, including the Silver Slug, Silver Beetle, Galloping Ghost of the Pacific Coast, and, among Seattle's Scandinavian community, Kackerlacka, which means "cockroach".  (From Wikipedia..  ;) )

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_Kalakala

The engine's crank shaft held the record for the longest in North America. However, it is suspected that the engine and crank shaft may have been poorly aligned. This may have been the culprit for her teeth-rattling vibration. Part of the problem was her propeller. After having her original four-blade prop replaced with a five-blade propeller in 1956, the vibration on the ferry was reduced by a substantial 40%.

Set back from her streamlined superstructure for aesthetics, it was impossible to see the bow of the vessel from the bridge. As visibility also depended on round portholes rather than a fully glazed wheelhouse, she was known for being difficult to handle when docking.

A sub would be very nice, but in order for that to happen V-Step would have to model the world below the ocean and would probably cause lag even if you're in a classic surface ship. Remember that undersea mountains, valleys, and rifts would have to be added, as well as the underwater portion of icebergs and maybe coral for Bora Bora. Also it gets dark underwater and the current light system on ships is just dots of color. But if subs are ever added it would be cool is shipwrecks would also be modeled so you could have exploration journeys (maybe the Titanic in the Atlantic Ocean map?).

It doesn't need to model the ocean because the most of the subs haven't windows.... ;)

Then if they make a small one with windows it would be PERFECT :2thumbs: to design the ocean (like creating shipwrecks, corals, etc.). Also the could create a new kind of mission :captain:

Right, but there is the orbit view.

Like MIR or Nautilus, with a mother ship (and the subs as deployables!) along with deployable ROVs from submersibles. But still, lights in the game don't really shine ahead, they're just colored dots. Maybe x meters in front of the sub or closer would be pre-lit. And of course it takes a long time to descend to the sea floor, namely in the north Atlantic. Subs would probably be best in Bora Bora, with the clean, shallow water and already modeled sea floor.
