Anything you can think of adding to the next (mobile ) version ?

Hi, jcarrion!

I would like to be able to do interstellar spaceflight in space simulator 1.0.3! Thanks!

                   Cheers,

Possibility to install/add more MFDs to make space travel easier. For example Aerobrake, Attitude, Burn Time Calculator, Interplanetary, etc.
I suppose it is being worked on but a complete working manual in pdf format would be nice...

Hi,

Hard to say

Need to see 1.0.1

then 1.0.2

and they not yet available? i won't say late as I don't know the process but its beyond stated dates

But without that knowledge

Quite simply a solid structured tutorial system

with the possibility to have the really world physics  reduced  to say three levels

 Rookie -   reduce or dampen the controls to 20-30 percent unlimited fuel -  so that the fine touch needed for the full sim is reduced to a learning level

Pilot - almost full physics  say 60 percent  increased fuel  almost there

Astronaut - 100 percent controls  fuel limits  the full deal

The tutorial is needed soon  in fact before any request for other features - check the reviews on the app store

You risk losing the people who want this to work

You have the basis of a very dam good product - with huge expansion and as a developer additional revenue to keep it all going

But unless you fix the the basics first - how you use the product - you will lose people fast

And I for one don't wish that for you

Paul

ps if you were to have realism settings like above  all the tutorials need to be playable at each levels  so people can improve or find there level of the sim that works for them it will help to keep them engaged

yep , we are on that . We have a SDK for people to develop their own MFDs as a downloadable addon.

The PDF will be very soon . Still working on minor (and not-so-minor bugs ):)

Thanks

Well , a.t. m I think the priority is the user Manual , and free roam missions . The tutorials will have to -somehow- wait.  Simply not cost effective to tutorialize (sp?) every missions ,let alone in diferent difficult levels.   Also , there are tons of documents that references the use of AGC, DSKY and every detail on the apollo program.   Anyway , we are aiming more towards a free roam (orbiter ? )style program. The apollo /Shuttle missions werent even planned to be included in the first release ,  

Perhaps we ll create a youtube channel for instructional videos , thou

Thanks!

Hi,

"Simply not cost effective to tutorialize (sp?) every missions"

Thats not what I was suggesting You only really need some simple  manoeuvring tutorials  so people can develop control

whats the point of free flight if all you do is spin out of control - you want to pilot the ship

would It be possible to set up CM  - LM  say 30 feet apart  for docking (with the wrong rotational orientation )  - and the same again for the shuttle ISS may be a bit further out  but not miles

and some other basic control stuff flip 180 degrees rotate 90 degrees etc (doing this first )

you know your sim  keep it simple but instructive with a progression from whats previously been learned

"let alone in diferent difficult levels"

I think I did not got  across what I meant about realism

In preferences have 3 settings  easy normal hard

in its most simple form the easy reduces the control input buy an amount (input - 60)

with less for the normal

and full control for the hard

it might take a bit of time to code but it will be worth it to keep people engaged

When did you last play a game that only had a legendary setting - and how long would you use it if it did ?

Would Microsoft ever have sold the numbers of copies of Halo if all you did was die in legendary 

Simple gameplay - thats all 

You do want people to buy add ons don't you?

They won't if they have already given up 

There was a brilliant pc game back in the 2000's  Delta Force 2

The graphics were only ok the Ai was a bit off but the gameplay online was - so good !!!!!!!

a bit like modern warfare 2 

I think you have a danger of missing that out if you not careful 

Its your product  so tell me to keep this to myself if you disagree - but I really am trying to help you with something that I feel has really big potential for space fans and others if got right

Same as vinny, interplanetary flight, and transx window like in the beta version, and i would like to produce addon.

Yep , 1.0.3 will have interplanetary . The 3D interactive orbit maps will  ll take a few weeks ,as it was (is )  complicated as hell.  The physics/solver works like a charm. But the interface is confusing/buggy/extremely difficult to use . Specially on a touch screen.  Also , not quite clear how to help compute the final planet/hohmman intersection graphically,

On the other hand , the solar system is almost complete. All the way up to Neptune's Triton

and , still considering interstellar travel .Perhaps too much for the mobile version. But will defintelly be available  for the PC/Mac . The double-precision system allows up to 10 ParSec(s) range. large enough to include the nearby stars.

Hi Paul

Well , the difiiculty and the fuel is a tricky one. If we put simply more fuel on a rocket , then it would not take off due to the weight . What I can do is simply to reduce the fuel usage rate in the Medium/Easy .   (as in more mileage ). that would do .

I ll add also a training mode with the LM/ CSM a few feet appart .  (*Hint:  once separated form Saturn IVb , if you punch program  33 on the DSKY    by  [VERB] 37 [NOUN] 33 [ENTR] ,  the CSM will autodock automatically , as it did in most missions )

Obviously remember to set ALF Rate GYRO to low , and all the RCS Quads enabled .

Hi, 

Well not sure where both sets of switches are to set - Looked at an apollo instrument panel image - butI am  not an apollo pilot 

However I did break it again - lol 

and a question / observation 

ran A11 Ep4  simply staged after startup 

ran the program as you said  and yes auto dock works well - however I can't work out how the translation  from below - S-IVB booster works 

looked at the quad thrusters and can't see  whats happening ? if you were to do this manual  again how would you do it ?

also is there a reverse thrust switch or control 

and if using the cockpit full view is it possible to see the capture target and which window should I look to see it 

So I then undocked  left it a few secs so gained some distance  power up left controller 

and well you can get an interior view of the S-IVB as you pass through it  see screen   ( you fly all the way through it )

do you need some  capture parameters  as it should really have gone bang 

Let me know 

Paul
