A new version is online, additional ships and runtime support

new is the installer we now use a managed installer, which also tries to load only differences from the server, and also an update checker is now installed,

the link:

http://www.rdklein.de/pocsim3dII/webupdate/install_std_POCSim3dII_web_auto.EXE incremental installer 1.54b (512kb to start)

http://www.rdklein.de/pocsim3dII/install_std_POCSim3DII_Runtime.EXE runtime package for the above Wise-downloadmanager 1.00 (2MB )

http://www.rdklein.de/pocsim3dII/install_std_POCSim3dII_web_lg.EXE full installer 1.54 (212MB)

I recommend deinstalling the old version previous to 1.52 and clean up the directory, but keep the ini files.


NEW features:
1. the locks are implemented in several harbours now:
Panama,Zeebrugge, Veracruz, Antwerpen, Bremerhaven
-- also a new sound effect comes with them for easy manoevering.
2. harbours redone
Gythion, Point Hope, training harbours
3. new is a small testharbout for ships.
4. new shader for water
5. sun environment now has page up/down + insert and DEL to move the sun around - this prepares our real sun position system.
6. bugfix for submarine in panama flies away !
7. some addon ships as bonus from the poc2008 deluxe edition: BBC Europe, Tugboat and Coast Guard.

8. Attention The Keys have changed, F1 for help on the new keys, ALT-N is the old N key for example ESC is not BACK and use ALT-F4 for close of the program.

The Wise web deployer has a problem, as it needs the runtimepackage msvcr71.dll before it can install files - but so it has no chance to install it !!

Therefore if not on your system use the installer for the Runtime first which is small, then the Web Installer should work.

The full installer does not have the problem - it will also install the runtime, as next time you use the updater it might require the dll also.

hi rdk,
poc sim 3d2 works fine! and i lioke the scenery in panama Smile
but anyway i have some suggestions:
1. the locks should be better visible in the maps and the radar.
2. it's kind of funny to berth a tug in a cargo place.
maybe there's in sometime the chance to make a tugport or a
coast guards' office Cool

- yes for the locks I will find a way (like used on the ships there is a top only shape which I need to implement for scenes - that will also help increasing the cpu speed for land parts with currently high details),.

- yes for tugs and coast guards I can add berths -
we also have to change the simulator kernel, currently the small ships are handled like large ones - which you can see in the turn behavior -- I will enhance this also.

ups - we used a new installer,
I will change this quickly

--

indeea its a bug in the Wise SP 1 -- instead of checking >= XP its now checking =XP ---
I have removed the check completely, as there is not save way to check for larger versions now,
but we carefull you can now isntall also onto 2000 or older systems, which wont work correct.
