This application is designed for Chief Mates, which are the head of the deck department on a merchant ship and are responsible for emergency operations if they occur. VARtech was responsible for all aspects of the training content and development to include overall design, storyboard, 3D content, character
generation, audio, programming, AI, animations, and testing. In this simulation the player assumes the role of Chief Mate and must direct two teams of personnel on how to properly approach, investigate and resolve the fire. Two-way communication with the crew is handled through voice recognition via a virtual radio. The player can issue commands to other crew members and communicate the status of
the fire to the bridge by using the VR controller and interacting with the virtual radio. There are multiple classes of fires and randomized scenarios on each playthrough.
