Do you mean the Ocean Star? if you do, it does take a long time, but i suppose its good for the size of the ship.

Jack.

at low speeds it is not to bad but them she is very big

This topic was made when I had Ship Simulator 2006.

I now have Ship Simulator 2008 and New Horizons, so the discussion has shifted accordingly.

Well as this still is the SS2006 board, it might be wise to try and stay on topic and keep it refering to SS2006, so you would avoid confusing like this.

Or, I could put it into the SS08 board for you if you want, as it is now an SS08 topic?!

Hi Speed Boater.

Just in case it wasn't clear from RMS Gigantic's response, those are all from Ship Simulator 2008. It's an excellent upgrade from the 2006 version (which was excellent of itself).

For some reason ('cos he's bought the newer version  ;D), he is now talking about Ship Simulator 2008 in this Ship Simulator 2006 thread...

Hi speed boater,

That animated signature was made for me from some screenshots I took by one of the forum members, Captain Bluebeard. (Formerly known as TJK).

You can have such a thing, but you have to have it/make it first to put it in your profile.

And no there are no secret waters to be unlocked. As Terry said, the things mentioned here are from SS08, not SS06.

Regards,
Fred

As you wish, I have moved it to the SS08 boards as it is indeed more about SS08 now.

the ocean star stops slowly if you use the pods at 180 and very fast in reverse

But the ship doesn't reach 23.75 knots in the game

True.  I find that Titanic doesn't.  She can in SS06.

Hi THETITANICEXPERT.

Please don't wake up old threads unless you have something important to add.

Telling a Ship Simulator 2008 thread something that happens in Ship SImulator 2006, over a month after everyone had finished with it, just isn't the "proper thing".

If anyone is interested in measuring Titanic’s stopping distance, you can construct a test in the ME where you run her past—not through— a waypoint at the desired speed and go astern full abeam the waypoint. You can read the stopping distance on the HUD.

Please do pardon me for necro posting but it just so happens that I have a stop watch and I will probably get her up to that speed and once she is at the top speed I will kill the thrust and see how long it will take her to come to a complete stop.

if you only have ss06 you can go to the home page shipsim.com and order in box or download the ss06 add-on pack which does include the ocean star (the cruise ship) ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

well I was able to get her up to just 21.50 and from there I have done the all stop on the engines and the time that it has taken her to come to a complete stop was
H--M--S
00:17:31

H=Hours
M=Minutes
S=Seconds
