New Ship Sim Game Available Now, Greenpeace Ships Make Appearance
According to the press release, “Ship Simulator Extremes, now available to gamers, features Greenpeace ships Esperanza and the yet-to-be-built Rainbow Warrior III — in game sequences based on actual past actions at sea.”
The simulator is made by VSTEP, and previous versions are already played by a half a million gamers. The ships are all meticulously rendered from blueprints, CAD drawings, and photos to behave like actual simulators.There is also a Rigid Hulled Boat, or RHB — the legendary Billy G — which you can launch from the deck and blast through the waves.
You can take the ships in and out of accurately recreated ports.Details About Ship Sim Extremes
You can control variables like wind speed, wave height, weather, and daylight to customize your adventure. You can create your own missions to upload for other players, and when you successfully complete a Greenpeace mission you unlock video of one of our captains describing how it really went.
The game even re-enforces Greenpeace values: If you ram a whaling ship, your game is over. Greenpeace always practices non-violence.
Best of all, when you buy the donation version of game, 20 percent of the proceeds go to building the REAL Rainbow Warrior, and gets you a chance to win a trip on one of her first voyages.
