Only in Free Roam, and when creating missions, can  you change the weather and environment, (such as time of day and waves)..  The maximum height of waves is then 4 metres, in harbours 0,2 m..

Hi Chris,

Unfortunately, the game is limited to 4 metre waves, which are still pretty scary at times  :o  The screenshots you may have seen about the HUGE waves was when a certain member edited the game illegaly and made the waves that big. You are not allowed to modify the games files in any way unless permitted to do so.

Hope this helps and clears things up ;)

Hi and welcome to the Ship Simulator Forum jakanddexter.
apparently, 4 metre waves are scary for small ships like the Harbour Tugboat, VSTP7, Marbella Deligt, Northern Star, Arie Visser and Pioneer, Hydrojet and Freedom 90. with the update patch to 1.4.2 from 1.3 and 1.X, you can no longer make waves bigger with the 1.4.2 patch. Sorry, the biggest the waves can go is 4 metres, which is equivilent to 12 feet.

It is not a problem, it was meant to be that way. And like people said, they edited the game's files which is illegal and VSTEP won't offer technical support if you do do it. And with the latest 1.4.2 patch, it is impossible.

Like I said before, it is not a problem. And the moderators have little or no way to modify the game. Though Pjotr has told me that in SSE the waves should be at least 14M.

As The Captain said, it is not a problem, and we all know how to do it, I could do it if I wanted to, but I don't feel like messing up my SS. It is also illegal, can't you just wait for SSE? SSE will have all the big waves you want, and then you can be happy!

So.... I should put my post back :-\ ;D? Okay, but I'm only doing it so that it doesn't look like you said I said something that I never said, just saying ;D.

#1- The moderators can't and aren't going to adjust the game.

#2- They do like their buyers very much because they make games for them, like SS08 and 2010.

#3- It isn't a problem. Even though it might be nice to make waves at rediculus hights, it will get, as it often does, 'old'.

And who would help you with the file conversions for wave hight?

I very much doubt VSTEP would give you permission. SS08 is not open source... :sleepy:

I'll tell him how you feel..


Seriously though..

The game is programmed to deal with seas up to 4meters high.

Anything beyond that is stupid, because the ships will no longer behave like they should, it's outside the programming.

This sim is about realism, so anything unrealistic is unwanted. For the same reason, there are no spaceships in the sim. But some people that do not understand realism have requested them nonetheless.

And the fact that there used to be a way, does not mean this was ever intended to be any higher. The files never were meant to be open for editing. Case closed.

Wait for the next version, you'll get more then.


Regards,
Fred

Please don't double post, especially if the next post does not have anything useful to add. Anyway they were not really 'open for editing' VSTEP never said it was Ok, I think they just figured that no one would try to edit them, but when people did start to, they were wrong and they had to lock the files.

jakanddexter,  

Files shouldn't be tampered with.

1. If you do, you'll use ALL technical support.
2. You'll simply make your game un-realistic.
3. You will probably be banned.

This has been discussed many times before. And for the final time, editing the waves is illegal. And with the new patch, it cannot be done anyway.

And from my own, personal experience, I can tell you that the waves in Ship Sim are big enough as they are. If you were to run into them in real life - You'd be in trouble...I can tell you that now.

This isn't Tsunami Simulator.

Jack
p.s. Spamming the forum with ":doh:" Isn't very clever either.
