A space exploration adventure in the Solar System
- The Solar System with planets, moons, space stations and asteroids
- Simulation of gravity and orbital mechanics
- Landing, docking and interplanetary travel
- A space adventure with secrets to discover
How to play:
- Please refer to the Astronaut Handbook for controls, UI info and a guide to space manoeuvres:
- up: open control panel
- down: toggle time warp
left/right: adjust zoom
- X+left/right/up/down: pan view
X double tap: recenter view
- O+left/right: rotate spaceship
- O+up/down: main and reverse engines
Open the control panel. Use left/right/up/down to navigate. Move to the ORBIT tab. Hold O and press right until TASK tab is visible. Read the message. Go and explore!
This is amazing. Still finding my feet here with the controls but it seems like there's a lot to discover. I like that time acceleration made it in, and this transfer helper seems useful, even if I haven't quite figured out how to use it yet - sometimes it seems hard to get everything visible at the same zoom level. I also took off orbiting the wrong way on my first attempt, which made things harder.
Seems super cool overall though, I'll be spending more time with this one!
This is awesome. Definitely going to take some getting used to, but I'm really impressed with how much you were able to incorporate here. I'll be studying your code to find out how I can improve my orbital mechanics game.
I absolutely love the shadows cast by the bodies.
One issue: I wish I could tell which bodies I've already scanned.
I finished it. I loved every second. It didn't take too long for me to get the hang of it, but I wish I'd realized I had all the important controls while the HUD was closed earlier.
The sheer amount of orbiting bodies in every system was insane, and made me want to try to intercept them all. Would be cool to have some on far more eccentric orbits.
The only thing really lacking that would make this a true masterpiece is music. I hope the [to be continued] at the end is a promise.
