Try-out virtual sailing with Sail Simulator 5
Resetting Sail Simulator 5 online scores Tuesday, 13 August 2013 15:25
Dear Virtual Sailor,
To give all new online sailors in the Sail Simulator 5 online servers a chance, Stentec will reset all the previously earned points.
This will happen at September 2nd, 2013 at 12:00 UTC/GMT.
To give you a heads up, we are planning to reset these scores more often in the future. We do this to keep the competition going for those who want to show their true virtual seaworthiness. We encourage you to sail new races and try to achieve your best online ranking.
The next reset will be at January 2nd, 2014.
Where we will determine the winner of these four months of competitive sailing.
We ask all players to play fair at this tournament to keep the scores realistic. If this is a success, we want to give you a second chance and start another tournament after this.
Unlicensed Sail Simulator 5 copies Wednesday, 05 June 2013 10:38
Dear Virtual Sailor,
There are unlicensed Sail Simulator 5 copies on the market. You can recognize these unregistered copies by the publishers name “IGS”.
IGS is no longer (since 2012) a publisher of Stentec Software’s Sail Simulator 5, Sail Simulator 5 Boat Set 1 and Sail Simulator 5 Deluxe Edition. Unfortunately IGS is still selling unlicensed copies of our software. If you purchased a copy from IGS, we advise you to return it to the store where you bought it.
Stentec has an activation system on all its products. This means that you will have to activate you product using your internet connection before you can play titles like Sail Simulator 5. The Sail Simulator 5 copies from IGS cannot be activated, and Stentec Software does not refund your money, or activate this copy for you. Understand that Stentec is not responsible for any IGS copy of Sail Simulator.
We would like to see satisfied sailors online using our software titles. So we hope you read this message before purchasing an IGS copy of our Sail Simulator 5.
If you want to know if your copy is legit, be sure to buy a copy from Stentec Software ( http://shop.stentec.com ), ICEBERG interactive ( http://www.iceberg-games.com/ ) or one of our registered dealers (http://www.stentec.com/wheretobuy ).
Thank you for your understanding.
Good (virtual) winds,
Team Stentec Software.
Maximum sailors per session Friday, 21 September 2012 13:53
The maximum players per session has changed from 16 to 12. Stentec changed this because the Sail Simulator server experinced some lag and overload. The server will run more smoothly now!
