Congratulations VSTEP!

It's hardly tampering, you can already save your own weather presets.

In free roam.

The 4m restriction is too low for sure, around 10 would be better for the top of that slider.... more suds too...a la:

You can't without editing the file.

Check the first post, there's a small instruction on how to do it.

You need to use notepad to open the file

The only thing I do is tell you the consequences. We support additions to the game like missions, new boats or boat skins, scenery, extra functionality etcetera. However, we don't support modifications to the hardware. We can't forbid it either, that's why I've kept this topic open but with a warning. No support after tempering with the basics of the game.
will we get the support back if we re-install the game???

Maybe Ship Simulator is the best game ever created???

I think the Admins of this forum and   developers of ship simulator 2008 are very strict 
The game has so much potential but they just throw it away.

1.  support the modding community 
2. fix the bugs there are some serious one .
3. create a free world to sail in and a good mission editor.

Hiya :)

I would like to offer my personal opinion here ;)

1.  I believe it's entirely up to the developers what they want to be done with their product.  Modding can be good, but it can also affect the overall game too.

Example:
I got a virus from a Battlefield 2 mod a while ago and I tend to avoid them now, luckily my Virus Checker detected it before install.  Even so, there are individuals that may take advantage of Ship Simmers who like their mods.  Even if Vstep allow Ship Sim to be modded, I will not download any mods, because I love the game with exactly what Vstep have included, and there is plenty of scope for further additions
:)

2.  These fixes are in-progress at the moment, as indicated elsewhere on the forums :)

3.  The Mission Editor is also in-progress.  As far as the 'free world to sail in' is concerned:

Ship Simulator is a little over a year old, maybe if Vstep are given time to develop the product, this will be included.  They have included a great deal of the features we asked for, developing the game from Ship Sim 2006 into Ship Sim 2008 :)

To label anyone as stupid with this scenario is a little unfair in my opinion, Vstep have never let us down.  The support from them is second-to-none and I have personal experience with bad service.....something that I have NEVER seen with Vstep :)

Regards.

To some point I have to agree with Halmex, but I wouldn't use the word stupid. Many games are being modded, and in most cases the developers supports that because it usually makes games even better. I don't see any need to close this thread, you should allow it being discussed here even if you don't want to offer any support.

But let's make one thing clear. When you purchase a copy of this software it's your property, as long as you keep it on your own computer you can do with it whatever you like. But in this case, if you modify the files you can not expect any support from the developers. I hope they will change this view.

Btw, I find it kind of strange if Vstep would end up in conflicts with their customers. Maybe Vstep should think twice if they plan new versions and addons in the future..

That's actually a misconception.  You don't purchase the game, you purchase a 'Licence' to use the software, hence the End-User Licence Agreement.  Anyone clicking the 'Accept' button or 'Next' from ANY Licence agreement page is accepting the terms in that licence.  The software REMAINS the property of, in this case, Vstep :)

Just to clear things up :)

DJM, yes that's true enough on paper. But I consider every file on my system as my property, simply because nobody can prevent me from changing them, deleting them or whatever.

But I will never of course distribute licenced or copyrighted software or try to make money from it, I'm keeping it on my own system only.
