Vehicle Simulator was created by Ilan Papini first version released in October
Vehicle Simulator is based upon two older programs developed by Ilan - Micro
Flight and Virtual Sailor,
the first was a full fledged flight simulator and the second being a full
fledged marine simulator.
During the years of their existence the power of the personal computer and 3D
graphics increased so much that it became possible to combine the best of both
worlds into one program containing :
- Excellent first person ground level graphics.
- Excellent naval environment both above and below water.
- Excellent atmospheric simulation up to space.
- Excellent vehicle simulation for land, naval and flying vehicles.
Vehicle Simulator is a complete rewrite and complete conceptual redesign
based upon the two programs above, resulting in a much denser scenery than
before, excellent physical simulation, and scalable design allowing it to grow
and contain more types of vehicles and objects.
The greatest benefit of all is offering a single platform for content
development for both types of applications, allowing flight simulation to happen
over the same scenery as naval simulations, and for planes to land on vehicles
Vehicle Simulator includes an intuitive and simple scenery design inside the 3D
environment, making it much simpler for users to create and share content than
The program uses fully documented formats for creating scenery, vehicles and
animals, users are encouraged to get a hands on experience designing and making
add-ons and to share them with others.
