Virtual Sailor:

Was written by Ilan Papini, first version released in 1999, since then it has seen at least 12 major release versions, with many minor versions released each year. Virtual Sailor 7 is the most sophisticated naval simulator in existence for the PC today, it is the result of years of feedback and improvement and years of accumulated experience in naval simulation.

The program was designed to be an accurate simulator and features an exceptionally realistic water and ship dynamics. In addition, the program was made very user friendly and simple to add content to, it is simple to create and configure new boats, and scenery can be made by importing elevation data found in many sources throughout the internet.

All data structures and formats used by the program are fully documented for the purpose of adding third party add-ons, and indeed over the years of its existence, thousands of these add-ons were made by many dedicated users of VS. The author of this program is grateful for the excellent work and support of all these add-on makers without who's work this advanced program would not be possible.

Vehicle Simulator: (newer and more powerful)

Is an excellent aero-nautical simulator, having excellent flight dynamics and marine dynamics, this simulator allows you to fly and sail where ever you wish, to explore and customize your planes and boats and to train yourself on all forms of flight and sailing.

Vehicle Simulator was created by Ilan Papini first version released in March 2009, it based upon Micro Flight and Virtual Sailor, and combines them into one powerful program.  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.  A vehicle is a mobile machine that is designed or used to transport passengers or cargo, such as bicycles, cars, motorcycles, trains, ships, boats and aircraft.
