I’m surprised you guy’s took “Microsoft” seriously. He has obviously been spouting nonsense. He has probably secured an early release, is off his meds, and going ape.

Hi guys,

When I first got Ocean Star in NH, I thought the pods were bad to.

But after a while, I thought i'll take my time and figure it out. it didn't take long, and now I can control OS just like any other ship ;)

One thing though, if you use reverse thrust and turn the pods 180, its top speed is 24kn. also if you try to turn from that e.g. to port it will only go starboard, and it doesn't quite act properly when you do that.

Then you just have to hit the opposite.

And Ship Simulator 2008 is build to be a realistic simulation.
and here you got a realestic simulation.
with a realestic Steering.

I don't know if it's just my machine but if I am going ahead, turn the pods to face sternwards the ship speeds up instead of slowing.  I don't see that as being realistic as claimed.

I have to hook up with the vast majority of this discussion - Azimuth Pods Rules.  8)

At first I was also a little confused with the ship going the opposite direction of the obvious possition of the steering-stick/controllers, but as others have mentioned, sailing a little around in the F.Roaming-mode soon lets You discover the wonderful new world of azipods - maneuveres you couldn't even perform in a car... :D

As to reliability of the system - I think as it goes for anything "newly" developed - children's disseases are inevidible - I think RollsRoyce/KaMeWa have also had their share of beginners problems with Waterjets...

Another great bonus, besides the navigational, of the Azipod-Ship or should I say Diesel/Electric driven vessels, as many of the cruiseships are, is that the torque-stabile electroengines, which are often located directly in the pod, gives a seemless, compared to conventional diesel or gas turbine driven propulsions, almost vibration-free thrust.

The azipods take a while to turn around so you will speed up to start with, also @firestar whatever way you turn it, it always goes starboard

Always goes to Starboard? So its impossible to make a left-hand turn? Hmm...Its not the game, Its something to do with your PC. Maybe a reinstall? Because i can turn left.

What, whilst reversed azipods and reverse thrust? (going forward)
It turns normally if i use the azipods normally, nd i only just reinstalled onto another hard drive (it seems to have fixed the error on exit)
