  1. Apart from the 3d aspect, this simulator is not even approaching the breadth or quality of Sail Simulator 5, which hasn't been updated for many years. While SS5 is lacking in many areas, it does have reasonably believable sailing characteristics. VR Regatta looks graphically clean and pleasant, but it is nowhere near the sophistication of a now very old simulator whose customers are not impressed by the developers total lack of interest in updating it. I hope that VR Regatta is gradually improved, but at the moment the selling point seems to be its VR and this is really not the most important attribute to concentrate on. At the moment the controls are somewhat dumbed down and the boats are too easy to point upwind.

  2. Really nice video but this is not a review. It's just a live recording of the gameplay, with no critical insight. I find this rather disappointing since the title says and I quote: "review".

  3. Thank you for sailing with us today 😉

    We're currently working on bug fixes and usability improvements to VR Regatta and this video is super helpful!

    Some of the things that are coming: "adjust height from within the boat", "more tutorials", "more hints on what to do".

    Anyone with ideas or feedback – please get in touch: greg@marineverse.com

  4. wow,..looks really cool that. Watching this on a normal monitor probably doesn't do it justice when it comes to that 3D immersion effect. Still hoping you can do an ETS video using the Oculus Rift.
