Having Fun With Simulation Games

Simulation games are the games that focus on the real life. They are the games related to the real world like a flight games, fashion designing games, racing, architecture, shooting, etc. The games, in a way, teach the players how to deal with realism and also forces the players to understand and remember the complex principles and relations involved with the game subject matter. Yet they remain very exciting and entertaining.

Therefore, if someone has not been able to experience the actual activity, for example flying a fighter plane in real life, then with the help of the simulation games, you can do so. It helps you gain the experience in what you wanted to do but could not do in your life. These days many profession institutions are teaching the students with the help of the simulation games. For example, the dental institutes are virtual dental games to teach the students how to operate on a tooth and pilots are receiving training with the help of Flight Pro Sim. With simulation games as educators, mistakes that could be life-threatening are only a virtual happening. These games are getting more popular now and even more and more new games are coming up with some different real life experiences.

The simulation games are the video or computer games that are played developing skills required using realistic situations. Example: these games include taking care of a virtual person, developing the cities or societies, building amusement parks. In other words with the help of these games one can see the model or a sample before giving it the final shape. Therefore many educational organisations are using the simulation games for the training purposes as there is no risk to the lives of the young trainees during the training sessions and also every little detail can be taught with ease without causing any damage to the machinery, or any other material used in the training processes.

Combat Flight Simulators – Microsoft

A combat flight simulator is a type of video game that simulates the operations of a military aircraft. They are different from normal flight simulators because these video games are used for military training, so they are more complex. Also, they often include shooting at enemies. Here are some simulators from Microsoft.

CFS WWII Europe Series (1998)

This is the first combat flight simulator that the Microsoft Game Studios created, and it was released on November 1, 1998. The setting of this video game is in the European Theater of WWII. It requires a minimum of Windows 95 to run. At the time, it had very good graphics, which preceded 2000. In this game, the ground was not very detailed, but it was programmed in open architecture, so it is possible to add extra software without breaking copyright laws.

This simulator includes many upgrades, such as a world flight mode, hundreds of aircraft to choose from, and much more. It can even be played online if you have an internet connection. Now, this game is out of print, but it can still be downloaded online. Currently, there is still an online multiplayer community for this game. It can be set up to play using your direct IP address.

Simulator 2: WWII Pacific Theatre (2000)

The next combat flight simulator Microsoft made was released in 2000. The setting of this video game is in the Pacific Theater of WWII, and it is loosely based on historic WWII battles. It was very popular at the time, and it requires a minimum of Windows 95 to run. This game was also programmed in open architecture, so many third parties created their own software to add on without breaking copyright laws.

This simulator includes seven kinds of fighter aircraft that the player can fly, some from the United States and some Japanese. It also includes eleven non-flyable aircraft, also from the United States and Japan. These eleven aircraft can be used as enemies or helpers to the flyable ones. The flyable aircraft can be launch rockets, bombs, or be fighter aircraft. In this game, the player can change the weather, but the scenery stays the same. There are also some moving objects that the player can target and destroy.

Simulator 3: Battle for Europe (2002)

The final simulator that Microsoft developed came out in 2002. It requires a minimum of Windows 98 to play. This is an updated version of the first combat flight simulator. It still takes place in the European Theater of WWII, but it includes more options. There is a campaign mode, and based on how well the player does, the player controls how long and who wins in the war. This means that it is possible for the Germans to win against England, or the Allies to win before D-day.

This simulator is in a much more complex format than its predecessor. This makes additional software for it much harder to make. However, there are still add-ons and expansion packs currently being made. It also has improved graphics and sounds. Some expansion kits can add extra nationalities, a Mediterranean Theater, new planes, the Tunisian Campaign, or the Korean War. However, this one is still criticized because one player cannot affect the campaign much.

Microsoft Game Studios created some of the most popular combat flight simulators. They made a total of three, each one adding extra content and complexity, and each taking place in European or Pacific Theater of World War II.

A Wonderful Simulation Game – Kindergarten

Wow… this is the coolest game! I love babies, so playing Kindergarten was so exciting for me! The colors and graphics are great. The details of the babies are amazing! You can totally see kids in their laughing as well as weeping moods. Kindergarten is a fun-filled, colorful and interactive management simulation game where you play Mila, the super sweet owner of the Kindergarten! Kindergarten is a high quality & entertaining cell animation game…which makes this game so incredibly interactive and fun!

Mila Says:

“Hi! I am Mila together we will manage a Kindergarten, this means taking care of babies”

Parents bring their babies to Mila’s Kindergarten, and you have to help Mila take care of the babies. All of these different babies have many different needs and they will for sure keep you occupied! If a baby goes pee-pee or does a doo-doo, you have to help Mila take the baby in her arms and change its diapers! When the baby gets hungry, you will have to help Mila prepare a bottle of formula. Once the bottle is heated up in the Bottle Warmer, Mila can give the bottle to the baby! Usually it takes a while for a bottle to heat up. Once Mila earns more money you will be able to buy a faster Bottle Warmer with her!

You have to make sure that you take good care of the babies and that you keep them happy! The happier the babies are, the more money you can earn from the parents that drop off their babies! If you fail to keep babies happy, you will be penalized and you will not earn any money!

Mila says:

“We will start with two babies and if we do well our Kindergarten will get more babies to take care of. With the money earned, we upgrade the interiors and exteriors of the Kindergarten. Eventually more parents will bring their babies–and the Kindergarten will start to grow!”

Once you earn money in the game, you can start using it to upgrade and expand interiors and exteriors of your Kindergarten! Mila only has a few toys in her Kindergarten, and she plans to buy more toys once she earns more money! You will have to help her!

I love the fact that you can do so much in this simulation game, like hire people. You can chose different types of employees and decide what kind of agency you want to use. Another neat thing is that you can decide whether you want to hire people permanently or just temporarily. The selection of employees to help you run your Kindergarten is great! You can hire a nanny, a receptionist, and more. You can even hire a clown to keep the babies happy! So cool! I love it that you can expand your Kindergarten as well with the real estate agent; like add stuff to it (such as a bedroom, kitchen, etc.). The shop is great! You can buy the greatest stuff to upgrade your KINDERGARTEN from the inside (such as beds, cribs, etc.). This game is definitely a challenge for anyone! Youda Games has really done a good job making this game!
