Rotterdam because it has the most interesting routes.  I like the sights of New York but for me, the traffic and branching harbours of Rotterdam are best.

To me rotterdam, beceaus of the many options you have there.

With the harbol patrol (as a pilot) and the container ship (picking the pilot up).

For the beer I would prefer a Belgian port ;) , bring on the Jupiler ::).

I would, but I get a lot of louding issues with New York. EX - When I want to pilot the Ocean Star in NY - Not gon na happen, it bogs down my computer and is SOOOOOOO laggy and sometimes the game engine crashes. It is really a downer.

Yeah!  New York seems to put a heavier load on the system, particularly the graphics. :(

Cheers.

What kind of performance difference do you get and what are your system specs?

I probably get 1/4th performance.

Greetings,
Navigation on every part in the world,is hard in foggy weather.But it is more hard if you are a stranger to that area.Example:I sail the river Scheldt(Belgium and Netherland)since i was 8 years old,so i know that river quite good.However when some fog or mist,setts in,than you need to know where you are on this river,before you are able to keep on sailing.
This goes on every river,about the same.If i'm on the game in New-York,that would be hard for me,because i'm never been there.Even with RADAR,it will be hard.
Regards
Marc

Rotterdam is presently the most interesting port to work with as  all the bouyage which is on the chart is also in the game, unlike other ports represented. The GP cargo ship is my favourite as it is the nearest to the ships I have sailed in, although of course much more modern!!!

Rotterdam is my favorite. I know the harbours for real, what is a benifit. ;D
Allthough i really like New York as well!

Favourite ship? That's hard. The inland barges are my favourites, because i have 1 for real. ;D
But in the end i like all the ships. They have all theyre own good and bad things. ;)
