Thanks Terry,

That's what I thought as well. It was an odd comment which prompted me to ask. I would hate for anyone to miss out unnecessary on SS2008 if they thought their Operating System wouldn't be able to work with it.

p.s. saw on another thread about you becoming a grandad - congratulations!  ;D

Go & make 2 screenshots of RD3 Vermaas's prop on water & on air from your pc!  :police:

To be honest, I have no interest in it. Better things to do with my time and all that.  ;D

I see a great deal of difference....  is it matched by a change in ship handling?

In fact, RD3 was more changed than that, as she is almost fully unladen, ie all containers are empty, and draught is at the minimum to keep the propeller under water. Almost.

But now, when the Vermaas is an AI vessel, she makes quite a jump so high that the propellor is half out of the water. (see pic)

Hallo Terry
Maybe you can help me. I see always many things can be downloaded from the Creators Forum. I tried once as visitor, no chance. Then I obtained a passwort and they gave me only 3 downloads. now i am trying to download for example this version of Vermaas less draft, but no chance, 0 downloads remaining for me. Do I someting wrong, or do I have to ask for a new password each download, or how is this working ?

Hi.

Thanks to the splendid work by LucAT, there are two new updates for Vermaas available on Creators Forum.

The first is a reduced draft version. Vermaas has now off-loaded 35000 tonnes of cargo and can access areas formerly too shallow, such as Waalhaven Terminal in Rotterdam etc.

The second update is a modification to the controls. This has an improved look (it doesn't change any functions) and is especially relevant if you use a large screen or a lower resolution. You may prefer it in any case.

Both updates come with an uninstall function that restores to the default version.

Link to Creators forum is in my signature, below.

To find these updates, simply select "Add-ons & Updates" as the environment in the downloads area. You'll see them in the list of available downloads.

Hi ARTSHIP, you have to give feedback on the downloaded mission. For every given feedback, you get 1 download.

Good afternoon.

The system gives you three downloads. When you give feedback about the download (did it work OK for you, or was there a problem?) then it gives you another download. So, just give us the feedback on each of the downloads and you can get whichever ones you want next.

As TJK says, if you create a mission that is accepted by our Mission Reviewers, then you get an extra five downloads.

Hi Aad.

Quite right. That's why there are two different versions. The RD3 version will indeed leap into the air. As the update's description warns. Unfortunately, there is no way around that. But I think that any good mission creator can use the different capabilities of the three versions and write some interesting missions.

(Luc's "Latitude at Botlek" is a simple, but very challenging mission using the RD Latitude).

Congratulations Terry on the new future sailor in the family!
Thanks to all for the Vermass update - I will download it after this. I am surprised that some clever devil (either at VSTEP or the user community) hasn't yet devised a way of globally adding to the water depth, or at least in Pompey. Anyway this will be most welcome just as the improved horn sounds were. Thanks to all
