excellent idea.  I do really like that website , with those models. Good inspiration for our artist!  

for the Steam Version we are  developing a ( algorithmically generated )gallaxy of more than 30.000 stars to explore and colonize ! .each with the most exotic planets imaginable :) .Not to speak the mighty black hole in the center! 

btw , thierry .. you have an Android by any chance ?  we are starting to plan the betatesting of droid version !

Hi, if you're still looking for Android beta testers.

I developed a LM sim years ago (mid 90s, that's how old I am...)  but because the graphics guy bailed out, it never got past very basic 3D graphics.   The flight model and code mimicing the Luminary AGC software was operational.  In other words, I know how to fly and land the LM, though it's been a while.  

I also have a rudimentary operations manual for flying the LM.

Let me know if I can join and be of further assistance.
