About Vehicle Simulator:
Vehicle Simulator was created by Ilan Papini first version released in October 2008.Vehicle Simulator is based upon two older programs developed by Ilan - Micro Flight and Virtual Sailor,the first was a full fledged flight simulator and the second being a full fledged marine simulator.During the years of their existence the power of the personal computer and 3D graphics increased so much that it becamepossible to combine the best of both worlds into one program containing :Excellent first person ground level graphics.Excellent naval environment both above and below water.Excellent atmospheric simulation up to space.Excellent vehicle simulation for land, naval and flying vehicles.Vehicle Simulator is a complete rewrite and complete conceptual redesign based upon the two programs above, resulting ina much denser scenery than before, excellent physical simulation, and scalable design allowing it to grow and containmore types of vehicles and objects.The greatest benefit of all is offering a single platform for content development for both types of applications, allowingflight simulation to happen over the same scenery as naval simulations, and for planes to land on vehicles and more.

Vehicle Simulator includes an intuitive and simple scenery design inside the 3D environment, making it much simpler forusers to create and share content than before.The program uses fully documented formats for creating scenery, vehicles and animals, users are encouraged to get ahands on experience designing and making add-ons and to share them with others.Advanced add-ons can be created using DLLs for instrument panels, animals and scenery objects, source code for suchDLLs is given as part of the program to encourage advanced users to develop high quality content for the program.The program is fully compatible with scenery, boats and planes made for Virtual Sailor or Micro Flight, after installingthese add-ons the program imports them automatically and creates the new vehicle paramters needed for them to run.Vehicles can be edited and created inside the program and accurate physical properties can be set for them and tested infligth or sail, making the program an excellet tool for learing the phyisical properties of these vehicles and their design.Documentation and tools for designing scenery, vehicles and animals can be found on the websites of Vehicle Simulator.www.hangsim.com/vsf www.qualitysimulations.com/vsf 
Minimal requirements for running Vehicle Simulator
Vehicle Simulator was designed to run on the average gaming machine specs available for 2008, however it can beadjusted to run on machines with less performance.Vehicle Simulator is built to use DirectX9 with vertex and pixel shaders 2.0 and volumetric textures.It is essential that your computer has a video card which is compatible with DirectX9.
Minimum Requirements
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 2.0 GHz, Intel Core 2.0 GHz, AMD Athlon 2000 or betterRAM: 1GBVideo Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro or betterVRAM: 128MB of Graphics MemorySound Card: DirectX 9.0c CompatibleOS: Microsoft Windows XP or Vista or Windows 7DirectX: DX9.0c or DX10
Obtaining more vehicles and scenery
Vehicle Simulator has several websites in which you can download more vehicles and scenery, and also get moreinformation about creating these add-ons, these sites are the main sites and from them you can access the partner siteswhich offer much more content:www.hangsim.com/vsf www.qualitysimulations.com/vsf To install vehicles and scenery follow this procedure:Copy the add-on file into the directory of the program (typically "C:\Program Files\Vehicle Simulator")Run the add-on file, and allow it to unpack itself.Run the program and examine the new vehicle or new scenery.
