It is a pity that the Simulation has not been implemented as well as the Description says. The Graphics are quite O.K., but unfortunately the Possibilities to look at the Ship are very limited. For example, there is no Way to enter the Bridge or move on Deck. What I would have expected, but has not been implemented, is the Journey from one Port to another. You can choose the Destination in the Map, but instead of going there yourself, you are only "teleported" there. Just, the Ride and Handling on the high Seas, would have been stylish. The Loading of the Containers is so reasonably necessary, but also there one could certainly have done something better. Docking, at the Port, has also only been treated very sporadically. You can drive into the marked zone, but it has already become with that. The "Bouncing," which has been described in many ways, is meant to simulate the Waves, but this too has been very poorly processed. The Ship merely slings and the Draught, when entering, into the Port, is very exaggerated. You could certainly have made a lot out of the Game, but that hasn't been used. Upwards, there is a massive amount of Air and offers an enormous Amount of potential for Dressing Rights.

A pre-way Ships 2017 is not such a bad Game, quite ok for a simulator/Indiespiel. It hadn't crashed, the Performance was also fully fine on Maximum and Fraps, only the Controls were nerve-wracking, but that was probably up to me. In General, we are the Owner of a Ship'S company? And buy our first Ship, there are a total of 3 available, but Initially we can only buy one Ship, but this is in absurd Condition. Our first Task is to repair the Ship, a small Gimmick, but more than just select something and click on "Repair" is not required. As Far as so good, then the Missions begin as described 24 in number, it starts exciting loaded with Containers up to Docking and driving out of the Port, which all succeeded very well however gave some Criticisms. The Graphics are okay for simulator, the Water looks pretty, but the harbour/building sky look quite mushy, the Ships remotely bouncing around the Harbour (let's add to that) also do not look very detailed, since I would have more Detail like "driving car taps trucks," "People in the Harbor or even on the Boat" desired, it looks too "empty" in my Eyes, but there everyone has their Opinion. To the Gameplay, the Containers loaded and unloaded was now really not the Most Exciting But belongs to what I didn't like then so much were the Physics of the jumping boat in the Water. I don't know Me much, but it really looks like you've bought a Lowridal Boat which is hoping through the Waves (with a small Boat possible, but no Barrel Heavy Kollos), also steering, for Simulator considered too easy, have the Game on Maximum Speed played and it was not a Problem, thought Boats would be more complicated to steer. Conclusion: The Game has its Strengths and its Weaknesses, unfortunately in this Case the weaknesses have the upper hand and so far do not see any long Time Motivation in the Game (which can be fixed with Patches, but you can see how the Developers are on it). The first Patch came out today (21.10), which means the Developers are trying to fix Bugs, which you can't claim from many other Developers. So far I would not recommend it, but can still change how much work is being done on the Game. If you want to take a Look at yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79MiQqOy2eo
