About Vehicle Simulator

Vehicle Simulator was created by Ilan Papini first version released in March 2009.

Vehicle Simulator is based upon Micro Flight and Virtual Sailor, and combines them into one powerful program containing:

  • Excellent graphics from ground level and up.
  • Excellent naval environment above and below water.
  • Excellent atmospheric model from ground up to space.
  • Excellent vehicle simulation for land, naval and flying vehicles.
  • Vehicle Simulator has a much denser scenery than these two programs, an excellent physical simulation, and a totally flexible vehicle design.

Vehicle Simulator includes a built in scenery and vehicle design, 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.

Documentation and tools for designing scenery, vehicles and animals can be found on the web sites below.

A fully functional demo can be downloaded here.

A video of the new design process is available here:
