Publisher description for Captain Of The Queens
Captain of the Queens is a computer simulator and a learning tool allowing you to explore how a Captain or Harbor Pilot can maneuver the Cunard ocean liners. You are given a Bridge window that controls the ship. If you are piloting the QM, you have 4 engines, a single rudder and 2 tug boats. For QE2, you have twin engines, a set of bow thrusters (or an optional tug boat) and a single rudder. Queen Victoria has a pair of azimuthing or rotating propulsion pods and bow thrusters. With the QM2, you control a unique propulsion and steering system consisting of two pairs of pods that carry the propellers and a bow thruster. Your challenge is to bring the ship to the dock in the harbor of your choice. A tutorial mode can help beginners to understand the control of these famous ships. On the other hand, Captain of the Queens is a game that encourages you to compete with others or yourself on how skillfully and how quickly you can bring your ship into the harbor. After mastering the introductory level of difficulty you can increase the challenge by requesting variable wind speeds up to 100 knots, shipping traffic you must avoid and even random equipment failure. A special version of Captain of the Queens called Queens Time Trials is included in the package. It differs from Captain of the Queens in having a count-down timer. You set the amount of time allowed the player, 5, 10 or 15 min, and the game halts after his or her time is up. When it halts it displays an overall score comprising penalties for collision damage and help from the crew and how far the player was from the dock or, if docked, the amount of time it took to dock.
