Virtual Skipper for Windows 98 Description:
With Virtual Skipper, take control of a 24-foot boat or a 70-foot racer and challenge the best skippers in the world. Virtual Skipper, the first true 3D regatta simulator, allows you to steer and tack to win. Follow the wind shifts, using the breezes, lulls, and currents all faithfully reproduced on the most prestigious stretches of water in the world. Play in single mode against the computer or in multiplayer mode on the Internet to face real opponents. You really will need nerves of steel!
Virtual Skipper features realistic simulations of water conditions like wind fields, weather, and currents, so you can experience the true sensations of being a helmsman. You'll actually feel the behavior and responsiveness of the boat. You can race two modes of regatta: fleet racing (with up to 8 players) or match racing. Sail in elite stretches of famous water, such as La Trinité sur Mer, Auckland, Hauraki Gulf, and the official racing site of the America's Cup, Maria Island. Mendel technology brings you real-time graphics and 3D animations. There is also real-time arbitration in accordance with international racing rules and a training tutorial for sailing and regattas to help even those without natural sea legs.
