Ports of Call Simulator 3d II

a game by MultiMediaStudio Dipl.-Ing. Rolf-Dieter Klein


Ports Of Call Simulator 3D II (pocsim3dII) is a modern ship simulator program, developed over years and new available in a new version. Its the sequel of POC Sim3D, now using Direct X 9 and modern grafic with many new possibilities. Beside the classic berth and departure of ships used with POCXXL, there is also a racing mode in which up to 4 players can play at the same time in one scene. In addition to the classic ships used in Ports Of Call also liners, tankers, hovercrafts, submarines and an ecranoplan (a so called surface vessel) can be used. The number of ships is constantly increased. Current highlight is the implementation of the cruise liner Queen Mary 2 (also available in POC XXL).


There several levels of difficulty from beginner to masters. The later using a real ship behavior. Also supported are different input devices, that is controlers like gamepad, joystick, wheels etc, which you can configure yourself (using a maximum of two at the same time).


Also available commercial versions for education, exhibition and training available using multiple screen, stereo etc. Contact poc@rdklein.de.
