In addition to the free add-on, VSTEP and Lighthouse Interactive today released the Mission Editor in a separate download. The Mission Editor is available in English only, but can be used in combination with Ship Simulator 2008 in any language. The Mission Editor includes an English PDF Manual which explains all features and functionalities.
VSTEP’s Producer, Pjotr van Schothorst said, After the UK release of the game in July, the large community flooded us with positive reactions, as well as suggestions. We take our users very seriously and went to work on this huge content upgrade to fulfil the requests on our users’ wish lists. We also added a couple of fast and exciting vessels to this add-on, which may expand the player base beyond the realm of pure simulation and ship lovers.
Erik Schreuder, Lighthouse Interactive CEO added, This is an uncanny amount of free stuff that is being released for an already awesome simulation game. We continue to prove to our customers that we are in this game for the long run and we promise there is much more to come!
