Ship Simulator 2008 v1.3 Update Released!
Rotterdam, The Netherlands - VSTEP is proud to present a brand new update to their successful simulation hit Ship Simulator 2008. This highly realistic simulator puts players at the helm of some of the World’s most varied and detailed ships found at sea, allowing them to explore accurately recreated environments including the newly added Southampton, Marseille and San Francisco harbours. Ship Simulator is available in 20 countries and 7 languages, selling over 280,000 copies to date.

VSTEP’s Technical Director Pjotr van Schothorst stated: “The large and active Ship Simulator community has contributed a lot of ideas for new features, many of which have been included in this update. We are especially proud of the multiplayer function that adds a significant level of interactivity to the simulator. Ship Sim fans all over the world can now sail together with their friends and chat via in-game instant messaging.”

With the growing number of Ship Simulator users worldwide, VSTEP is continuously adding new content and features. In Ship Simulator 2008, players will need to perform a multitude of tasks, all set within stunning 3D environments. They will take control of a wide array of vessels – from massive cargo ships and ferries, to speedboats, yachts, water taxis, personal watercrafts, and even the mighty Titanic. The waters you sail are as varied as the ships, including the harbours of New York, the Thai Phi Phi Islands, Rotterdam and Hamburg, plus three newly added harbours Southampton, Marseille and San Francisco. Ship Simulator 2008 incredibly recreates real world locations from around the world and presents players with the challenges of commanding the vessel of their choice on the open sea.

Some of the new key features included in update v1.3 include:

Multiplayer functionality: For the first time in the Ship Simulator series, players can now sail around in their favourite environment with all of their Ship Simulator friends.
In-game download and rating of Custom Missions: The Mission Editor enables users to create custom missions and share these online with the Ship Simulator community.
Even More Realistic: Radio sounds on the bridge have been added.
Better Customization: Select a starting point in a sailing environment in both Free Roam and Multiplayer modes.

Dear Users,

Currently the MP servers are off line for an unknown reason.
We are working on a solution, so please be patient.

Regards,

Forum users,

Our servers have great difficulty coping with the numbers of connecting users.
For a yet unknown reason they behave unresponsive at times, whereby they are logged off from the master server and do not show up in your server lists anymore.

We are trying to find a solution for it, but since we can not monitor them 24/7 it can occur that your server list is empty at times. Please be patient and try it again after an hour or so again.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and we hope to have it all sorted out on short notice.

All servers have now gone down.
We still try to find the problem and fix everything as soon as possible, however we can not guarantee that they will be back online today.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

[Update] We still can not get the servers up and running.
I will keep you posted if we have more (hopefully better) news.

Most of the servers are back online.

The main issue is not solved yet, so we can not be certain that they will perform accordingly.
We will keep working on them and hopefully they will stay up and running all through the Christmas days.
