Ports Of Call Simulator 3d

a game by Rolf-Dieter Klein

designed & coded by Florian Bauer


Ports Of Call Simulator 3d (POC Sim3d), the container ship simulator, is called by POC XXL for berthing and maneuvering through reefs and icebergs, but can be also played standalone.


POC Sim3d supports two simulation modes. The arcade mode is more like in the old poc easier and faster to play, the simulation mode is more like the real ship with more inertia and more features like drift on rotating propellers etc. (captains will like it).
