Hi Guys,

for my dissertation I decided to make a simple sailing simulator, its nothing serious, and its definetly not Virtual Skipper (it was just me on a computer for a long time...)

Anyway, it would be good if i could have some feedback from anyone,

It should run on any browser and machine, provided you have the latest version of Java installed

http://www.cs.st-andrews.ac.uk/~cdp4/sail


any questions, comments etc. please direct them to cdp4@st-andrews.ac.uk or leave them on here.

thanks

Craig

(oh a few things to note, the boat cant sail off of the 2D map, so if the 3D model appears to stop for no reason, look at that.
Also if you change wind/tide settings, please make sure you click back on one of the other windows to continue playing, or it wont register keys to work)

controls are on the website, but its pretty simple,

< and > to turn Left and Right
A and Z to pull sail in and out
UP arrow and DOWN arrow to lift and lower dagger board

note: I have been developing this with the idea it could possibly be used to help teaching beginners at sailing, so when using it keep that in mind.
