Report your Bugs here! / Re: Re entry is not fixed lots of bugs

v108 had some basic functions of reentry fixed so you can successfully complete reentry in all missions. Thanks for your suggestions on more realistic reentry models. We will try to improve this for the next revision.

Yes we will make levels 6 plus optionally available somehow for those that want it. We won't bundle it in by default as it's a lot of data, but we will make it available for download for those that want it one way or another.

That's the idea. We are aiming for a universal version that runs the same on PCs and mobiles, with options to tune down the effects on smaller devices, seeing as the gap between higher end tablets and lower end desktops is getting smaller and fast.

General Discussion / Apollo 13 facts
« on: July 28, 2017, 11:09:46 AM »
Events leading up to Apollo 13 incident. Much of this is already well known. Here is a brief summary:

* an oxygen tank with wrong voltage tolerance and faulty lining was installed in Apollo 13, leading to a series of damages including damaged powered fan wire insulation within the tank
* Apollo 13 was launched in a free return to Earth trajectory
* at 30 hours Apollo 13 made a midcourse correction taking it out of the free return trajectory
* at 56 hours into the flight as the fans were turned on, the wire shorted and oxygen tank no. 2 exploded, damaging also tank no. 1 and bay no. 4 cover. The crew lost electricity, light and water
* 5 hours after the explosion, Apollo 13 made a 35 second burn to put itself back in the free return trajectory
* on the far side of the Moon, another burn of 5 minutes was made to speed up the return journey
* 4 hours before landing the service module was discarded

Marz13 thanks for your answer! That's right, so far there is only one target per scenario. To align your orbit with the Moon, ISS, etc. use the ORBIT planner window.

Hi Kmassie92, 1.0.8 has now been approved by the App Store. You and others should have received an email invite from Testflight. Let me know if not and I'll resend.
This new version has:
* new logo
* review button to unlock challenge missions, including Apollo 13 missions
* and LOTS of general stability improvements

General Discussion / new app icon
« on: May 07, 2017, 09:02:04 PM »
Space Simulator finally has a new app icon that does the game some justice.

It wasn't easy choosing one single image to convey all the things you can do in the game. In the end we decided to go with an orbit MFD which captures the spirit of the game well. Let us know if you like it!

General Discussion / windows close buttons (X)
« on: April 10, 2017, 04:17:38 PM »
Did you know that you can always show the close window buttons (X) by turning OFF "auto-hide windows" in the CONFIG menu. Currently, iOS users have AUTO-HIDE WINDOWS turned on by default to maximum screen space. If you are unable to find the close button (X) for the window you could try turning off auto-hide windows.

General Discussion / Re: camera ref ship button
« on: February 03, 2017, 04:59:24 PM »
Hi Leyzorek,

That's right, we added an additional external camera view option in v1.0.7. We added this in response to some users' request for an option to have the planet always in view in the same position on screen. I recommend that you use the REF: SHIP view if you are orbiting a planet in a constant orbit for an extended time. In the REF: SHIP mode you can enjoy the magnificent views of Earth or Moon from orbit without having to adjust the camera angle as you go around. Remember to keep your spacecraft prograded/retrograded as well.

Hope that helps!

Hi Wrench589,

did you managed to download the app in the end?
This could just be some temporary issue with Apple's servers which get resolved eventually so you just have to be patient and try again another time.

One thing I can suggest is to check that there is enough memory in your iPad. If you don't have enough storage it won't download.

Hope you're able to play the game again soon!

Happy 2017 to all our dear forum members!

We closed 2016 with the successful release of v1.0.7 - our most stable release so far. In these coming months of the new year we are working hard to bring Space Simulator to Steam on Early Access.

To celebrate this milestone we are GIVING AWAY FREE steam keys!!!

Yes that right, we are giving away free steam keys (PC or MAC) for anyone who rates the game positively (5 stars) on the App Store with a genuine and thoughtful review (min 50 words). This offer is for v1.0.7 only so those who reviewed previously versions please update your reviews to qualify.

Those of you interested in claiming your key please email me at info[at] or PM with your review info. The key will give you FREE access to the game when it is released for Early Access on Steam later this year.

A big big thank you to those who have reviewed already (you'll get your free Steam Key too of course!)
Happy 2017!
