Default New Mississippi Queen simulator!

Hello Steamboaters!

Another year... another update... :)

I have completely recreated the Mississippi Queen for a simulator known as Virtual Sailor. The boat has accurate physics and runs very well in the water.

I put together this page online to give a small tour of what is coming...

Check out the new simulator add-on at http://www.coasterexchange.com/mqvs/

The new model includes working paddlewheel, and pitman arms... working instruments in the pilothouse, radar, map system, depth finders, gps, and working steering tillers! :) There are also new steam whistle and calliope sounds as well as steam engine sounds recorded from the real Mississippi Queen as she visited the upper ohio river this past summer! If you look at the first picture on the webpage... you will notice on the computer in the background is steamboats.org... :) I added that as a nice touch for this site.

Thanks for looking, and I will post again when she is available for download! :D

-Nick
