Hi team, I'm on the look out for a marine engine simulator that can be run on my PC. I have come across a couple of demos but they aren't that flash.
Can anyone suggest where I could download such a simulator?

Thanks

7cs, good luck with your search. If you come across one and it is made by Pielstick,. I would be very careful, as it might run in a strange manner (Jester)

Better still if its a Doxford there are few of us here who would like to get the thrills of firing one up again.

if it runs faster than 120rpm forget it , its got a virus.
An interesting idea though a ships diesel without the sweat and oil.
Good luck on your search

I am struggling to think what a simulator of this type would do.

Flight simulation and ship navigation seems is fair enough - you simulate reaction of the plane/ship to the controls. But what exactly would you try to simulate in this case? Are you just after the sounds I wonder?

Regards,

Brian

Hi Brian,

I used to wonder what a machinery space simulator would do until I spent half an hour in the one at Warsash whilst on another course. Originally designed to help train and assess cadets and the holders of, shall we say non commonealth & North American Certificates it was sufficiently streatching to make a party of 6 Chief Engineers sweat.

Dont know how well it would translate to a single PC though as there was a deal of control room interaction.

Would a bridge control simulator do instead? (Thumb) It would save a lot of work.

All,
I read the above with interest one can almost smell the oil and exhaust and feel the heat.
The farmer who's farm my house backs on to, is a Traction Engine fanatic every so often he takes them out for a run they remind no more than a Clarke Chapman winch on top of a boiler with wheels, but he keeps them going.
Aren't smaller ME's used as back ups in some factories etc.
Yours aye,
Slick

Plus perhaps seven Steam Locomotive simulators in the first ten Google returns.
