What about those of us who are engineers on ships
« on: February 08, 2013, 16:49:22 »

What is your view on making a ship simulator but for engines only, so controlling of engines, maintenance etc??
I am in the merchant navy as an engineering officer and I think it would be good for those people who are too young or who simply like ships engines!

Captains on ships can hire and fire, but chief engineers on land hire and fire. Being on the bridge is good but the engines are the real heart. Deck officers may say that without them the ship wouldn't run but without the engines...the ship wouldn't move or do anything!!

But seriously "Engine room simulator"

God no!

The last thing that I want when I am on leave is to look at more bl00dy engines.

VStep are struggling to make a commercial success from a ship driving simulator, can you imagine how many people would buy an engine room simulator?
