“Vehicle Simulator is exactly what I expected: a mostly successful combination of Virtual Sailor and Micro Flight. These two aspects of the game (boating and flying) perform almost identically to their predecessors, which is not a bad thing. The arcade tilt means that Vehicle Simulator is great for beginners, and jumping online in the sandbox mode of the game is inviting. The game’s lineage means lots of custom content is already created, waiting to be downloaded, which expands the basic game’s scope. There is much room to grow, however. The textures could use more variety and detail and even more scenery locations (with more missions) would be appreciated. The automobile aspect of the game is quite limited: I’d like to see some military vehicles and racing modes (the waypoints are in place already: how about some checkpoint races?). The planned additions of a mission editor and sailboats should complete the package more thoroughly. Vehicle Simulator is not quite on the same level as big-budget flight sims, but considering the custom content angle of the game, I suspect Vehicle Simulator will grow into a more complete product as time goes on.”

“All in all, I like it a lot. This is a remarkable piece of work, and includes so many different elements of simulation; it’s amazing this is only done by an independent developer. With the pure potential this has, I can imagine some very highly detailed vehicles in this simulator’s future.”

About This Game
Vehicle Simulator in an open world flying/sailing simulator, having accurate flight physics and marine dynamics.

Vehicle Simulator was created by Ilan Papini, its first version released in March 2009.
It is based upon Micro Flight and Virtual Sailor, previous simulators made by Ilan, and combines them into one newer, more advanced and flexible program.
The game has a much denser scenery than the previous games, more advanced physical simulation, and a totally flexible vehicle design.
Vehicle Simulator includes a built in scenery and vehicle designer, making it much simpler for users to create and share content than ever before.
The simple yet powerful vehicle design makes Vehicle Simulator an excellent learning tool and also a powerful preliminary design tool.
