The water and the wakes that they leave are very nicely done, but the ships themselves are a little cartoon like, not nice and sleek like our aircraft. They look as if the were built out of blocks, blocks with bad colors.

I feel that I can criticize it because of the huge requirement they want in the PC (not minimum).

Recommended System Requirements For Ship Simulator 2006:
• Windows 2000 or Windows XP
• 3 GHz Intel® Pentium® IV or AMD® Athlon™ processor
• 512 MB RAM (1 GB for XP)
• 4x CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive
• Approx. 300 MB free hard disk space
• 128 MB 3D accelerated video card with support for Vertex and Pixel shader 2.0 (nVidia GeForce4+ or ATI).

Watch all the videos, I did. Same, it's a nice idea especially if I get to toot the horn (the best part of the train sims also).

It also looks as if you can download it from this site when it goes on sale.

WOW!!!! that actually looks really neat! i might just buy the download when it comes out!

..of course my top passion in life is aviation, but somewhere in "2nd place" i have always had quite a fascination for steering ships as well.

..i've been on several cruises and it never ceases to amaze me watching them come into and out of ports.

technology is amazing.. you used to see huge steering wheels on the bridge of cruise ships and freighters... now you dont see any at all. 100,000 tons of moving mass, and the helmsman has it all in his hand... in a simple little joystick, lol 😳

Hey,I always wanted a boat sim!I read a review in a mag,and apparently you only have the titanic(always gives me shivers when i drive it in a sim!)a tugboat,and some other boats.You can walk around the titanic,but there isn't much to see and one can't walk around the other boats.It seems to boring for an action game and too slow for a sim.I thought again after I read that...

yes... but then again... Microsoft made a TrainSim, ... at least in a ship sim you can go in whatever direction you want, lol 😂

..besides, i'm sure add-on developers and freeware modelers will jump all over that game... there will be different ships popping up everywhere on different download sites... (assuming that it works similarly to FlightSim, that is)

looks pretty boring, i mean what is there to do? Ship acrobatics? nothing but water on each side. Wait, I think I hear a fog horn: BORING, BORING!

I ensure you that this is not how you describe it. ❗
Maybe its boring travel with a ship but isnt boring a trans-atlantic flight?
Its different to be a passenger from being a pilot or the captain of a ship.
Try it once and you are going to understand that im right... 😉

..couldnt have said it any better GM Clap

lenin.. yes, cruising along at 10 knots in miles of water is boring.. but so is staying aloft with the autopilot on for 7 hours.

...you'd be surprised how exciting docking an 80,000 ton ship can be... lots to do, lots to monitor and watch over.. it aint easy!

just like planes.. the beginning and end of the trips are the most exciting.. with the middle there (the longest part, lol) being the boring part we'd all yawn through, lol

..truthfully.. im excited about this Ship Sim 😀

(but not nearly as excited as about FSX... lol)

I still won't check it out. Just like Lenin, I'm a diehard flightsimmer.

Pro Member First Officer
Ryan Finn (pilotguy44) First Officer

lol, amermel.. nobody here is trying to convince you to go out and buy it.

i'm a diehard flightsimmer also.. i'm in flight school in real life as well.

..but its okay to enjoy other things sometimes too. 😉

Well, i like anything that is amachine, so if it is Simulated i will get it, does not matters if it is ship SIM, i think it could be as great as FS9, but they don´t fly. 🙄 LOL
I like FS9!.
