Bridge Command Ship Simulator

Postby bridgeco » Tue Nov 24, 2015 9:05 pm

Bridge Command is an open source (GPLv2) ship simulator, developed for training purposes. I've developed it for many years with Blitz3D, but have now re-written it with Irrlicht, and it's now available as a beta to test for Windows, OSX and Linux.

It can be used as a standalone program, or networked (Enet library) with an instructor controlling what goes on in the scenario. With this networking, it's also possible to set up a panoramic view, with a computer running each view, all duplicating from the 'master'.

It's available at https://www.bridgecommand.co.uk, from the downloads page. As it's still in beta, most of the website is about the Blitz3d version. Version 5.0 is the new release using Irrlicht. Please post here or use the feedback form on the downloads page to let me know if it's running for you, as well as and any problems or suggestions.

The source is at https://github.com/bridgecommand/bc

Cool project. It runs here (tested only on Windows, can check Linux later). Not quite sure why I'm doing but managed to hit another ship and the ground - no problem :-)

Why do you use only such a small resolution?

Thanks.

The resolution and other settings are controlled from the bc5.ini file, either in the program directory, or in "%appdata%\Bridge Command\5.0b1" (or equivalents on OSX and Linux). I'm just in the process of putting together a simple settings editor to make it easy to change the settings.

Ok, found the settings! Had to rebuild on Debian from source, but works then. Some problem in scenario editor - looks like background is not initialized: http://imgur.com/a/GAHsI
Tiny hint for release - you should name your download BridgeCommand_linux or something similar. The current filename sounds like a new Linux distro ;-)

Thanks for the comments.
I've uploaded a new version including a settings editor, and included a fix for the editor problem (As you say, I wasn't clearing the image before copying into it)

I've also changed the download name!
