So... Found out about this game in this thread: http://www.idmforums.com/showthread.php?t=110380
I thought it looked cute, and I like space. So, I decided to give it a try.
I kind of love it. I've been playing it a LOT over the past few days, and I've just been having an absolute blast.
So far, I've been able to get into orbit, and I have two capsules in stationary orbit. (Though, one of them is due to a failed attempt at something else... as is another capsule I have orbiting the sun.)
Currently, I'm having a lot of trouble designing a rocket that can get as far as lunar orbit (as a precursor to attempt a moon landing.) So, I'm trying to make a lunar orbital recon station, but it takes a lot of fuel to get out of the atmosphere, and then I don't have enough to get out of planetary orbit. My idea is try and get into a very elliptical orbit around the planet, and then break orbit and head to the moon. Of course, it hasn't quite worked out thus far. I try to add more fuel, but then the ship is to heavy to get far.... etc etc...
Anyway, yeah, I've been having a lot of fun. Anyone else playing it?
