Developer

ZDSimulator is an independent railway simulation software and hardware developer based in Kiev, Ukraine. The group was founded in 2011 and since then has successfully developed and shipped multiple railway engineer training kits with emphasis on train operation. Ukrzaliznytsia and railway educational institutions of CIS form our main customer base.

To help students train-drivers in their studies and preparation for examinations we released home edition of the simulator with scenarios which resembled a video game. Internet community took a keen interest in the project and offered many suggestions as to how we can improve the program. By popular demand we released game version of the program that can be used both for education and entertainment. This resulted in popularization of railway professions amongst the youth. 

Nowadays the company's activity is split into 2 areas: professional train operator simulation kits and railway (ZD) simulator. The simulator software has been singlehandedly developed by Vyacheslav Usov, whereas the hardware, website and other is being handled by the rest of the group.
