PostSubject: VertiSim (3D helicopter simulation)   Sat May 29, 2010 5:47 am



VertiSim is an outstanding 3-D simulation of the immortal Mattel toy from the 1970s, the Vertibird. If you had one of these as a kid, you`ll especially appreciate this program. This simulation placed first in the GameDev.net Physics Contest. Since it is a simulator there are no points to score. There is nothing to shoot and no puzzles to solve. It is only you flying the helicopter and. You can`t even crash. VertiSim simulates this toy extremely well. In addition to simulating the Vertibird, this program also has the added twist of being able to place the pilot inside the helicopter cockpit.

The object is to fly this bird. You can pick up items with the choppers hook and also drop them off. You could turn this simulation into a contest between you and a friend, to see who is fastest at picking up an item and dropping it off at the landing pad on the ship.

This simulation has options galore! Besides the normal options, Vertisim has many options for helicopter parameters such as weight and wind drag. You can also set the position of the objects to pickup.

F1 = spectator view

The only way to get a genuine feel for this program and all its options, is just to download this simulation and try them all out for yourself!

Thanks to Mark S for this great game review.
