Nuclear War Simulator

The Nuclear War Simulator describes itself as a detailed realistic simulation and visualization of large-scale nuclear conflicts with a focus on humanitarian consequences.

The simulator allows you to design warheads, missiles, and carriers, place them on the map and execute attack plans to tell a credible story about how nuclear conflicts play out and what the consequences are. Using a high-resolution population density map and realistic weapons effects like blast, heat, and radiation you can make an estimate of how many people will die in a conflict.

Pretty heavy stuff.

Even in its infancy, nuclear war planning began to dehumanize the consequences by broadly mentioning the tens and even hundreds of millions of casualties, due to the sheer magnitude of damage possible.

You can plan a campaign consisting of up to thousands of warheads and target each individually or rely upon AI to help you out in the event you don’t have a massive target shop to help you out. Imagine visualizing Wing Attack Plan R.

Now this is where things get really interesting. Want to make the prospects of nuclear combat personal? Individual humans can be placed on the map, travel, and take shelter to analyze the effects and estimate injuries and survival probability. Place you, your family, or others right into the scenario.

Now available on Steam.

    This is awesome. I always wanted to nuke Canada and now I can, every hour of every day, with the added bonus of integrating the lamentations of their women!

    Thanks guys!

    This is not realistic as it does not have the capability to address the
    Fact that the U.S. has two ICBM missile defense systems in operation.
