I got very very bored with train simulator. However, I was a perfect driver ;D.

I would not think that people would protest if they added 1 stern thruster to a ship :P. That is a little overdramatic. Perhaps if I asked for the vermaas to have 2 engines instead of one, that would cause a protest too? I find it very hard to mauver the vermaas with only one engine. I am satisfyed with ethier a stern thruster or 2 engines. Nothing more I ask.

I quite agree with The Captain. If you added one stern thruster, no change would be made at all. You see, those who want this simulator to be as real as possible, can simply not use the stern thruster, however those who don't can. Its quite simple...

I agree with microsoft agreeing with me ;D. If you don't want to use it and want the game to be more challenging, then don't use it!

But we arent asking them to remodel it! We are saying that it would have been beter if they made a second engine or stern thruster!

yeah... what does the arie visser have in common with the vermaas? Nothing. So why would a random ship in SS have to be remoddled just because a mass of steel was getting upgraded?

So what you are saying is if they added a stern thruster or another engine, it would loose all its realisim? What you are saying is that there is absolutely no other cargo ship in the world with another engine?

if you where adding a stern truster and an other engine then the ships would need to be remodeld to occomodat the new addons as well as the dyamices redoing wich would take a long time

We arent adding anything! How many times do I have to say it? I would have perferred that the vermaas had another engine or a stern thruster >:(. Thats it. When did we start talking about asking V-STEP to add a stern thruster or another engine?

thirteen years later... ;)

LOL ;D.

first, it would go faster.
Second, it would be easier to dock. I never said that I could not dock the vermaas, I said it would be easier.

In real life, all cargo ships do is throw pollution in the air and carry tonnes of poisonus toxid liquid and crude oil. AND IF YOU WANT THE GAME TO BE REALISTIC, DONT USE THE STERN THRUSTER!!!

But vessels of this size don't have two engines either! And they WOULD have to remodel it (add a stern thruster) and/or model it to have two props. If you don't like it then go play Virtual Sailor, it isn't a REALISTIC SIMULATOR. And you can make what ever you want.
