Space Simulator is an ultra realistic 3D space flight simulation game running real physics in a full-scale Solar System with unrivaled rendering and graphics.
PLAY historic NASA missions of the Apollo Moon Program, Space Shuttle flights, Project Gemini, X-15 Hypersonic Plane and free flight missions to explore all planets and major moons of the Solar System.
LAUNCH from Kennedy Space Center, orbit the Earth and Moon, dock with ISS, perform Trans Lunar Injections, land on the Moon, practise rendezvous and return home with reentry and splashdown.
PLAN complex interplanetary orbits, operate flight computers, use onboard switches, instruments and displays, experience the full challenges of space flight and unleash the astronaut within!
• Interactive orbit planner to easily visualize, create and modify complex interplanetary orbits
• Spaceships have 3D cockpits with functional controls and instruments
• Custom mission editor to create hypothetical scenarios of past, present and future space programs
• Original audio footage on selected missions
• Step-by-step interactive tutorials of the Apollo Program lunar missions from launch to landing on the Moon to reentry. These tutorials take you through the same procedures, paths and events that led man to the Moon in July 1969.
• Uses aerodynamics models commonly used in most mainstream flight simulators
• Space Simulator uses real gravitational forces, distances and velocities based on a revolutionary physics engine especially created for this app running on the GPU.
• Ultra realistic rendering engine for the Earth and Moon with high resolution surfaces and atmosphere using a new metal-based graphics engine for unprecedented realism at maximum possible framerate
• The Apollo computers are emulated running actual code from the 1960s
• Configurable window-based UI allowing customization of the interface to suit your preferences
• Comprehensive configuration options to customize difficulty and gameplay according to your device capabilities
• Over 50 ready to fly missions
• BONUS content - review the game to unlock challenge missions!
Apollo 13 challenge missions: on the 3rd mission to land on the Moon, an oxygen tank explosion in the Service Module. The mission is aborted. Your challenge is return the crew safely back to Earth using only the Lunar Module.
Space Shuttle Return to Launch Site (RTLS): pilot the Shuttle back to base after solid rocket boosters are jettisoned.
Space Shuttle Transoceanic Abort Landing (TAL): after main engine cutoff, land the Shuttle at an alternative landing base.
• improved GUI - move, close and resize control windows more easily
• reentry procedure fixes, reentry autopilot mode improved
• Space Shuttle accelerometer mode fixes
• GUI showing current autopilot mode
• orbit predictor fixes
• improved Space Shuttle aerodynamics
• more detailed dock mfd
• improved custom missions panel with more config options. You can now launch from the KSC with any spacecraft at any time.
• user selectable max memory usage to clamp memory used for textures
Ratings and Reviews
Plz keep improving
This sim is amazing, however, there are a lot of bugs that came with the new version update. I can't get any response from the developer, even on their website. All the cockpits are Apollo, plz fix this, the space shuttle interior should be more realistic and the actual authentic interiors. The LEM needs the overhead port window for docking, also it needs a docking target outside for docking with the CSM. The CSM needs the docking reticle for docking with the LEM. The thruster controls don't work properly since the update and makes docking very frustrating. The AGC codes are scarce and buggy. This sim is worth the effort, I've been playing it for years but the updates are slow. I wouldn't give 5 stars if I couldn't play the new missions without doing so, that's kinda shady to make it like that guys. Don't get me wrong here, I love this sim, that's why I'm being honest, plz help us out here!
Update cool but still issues
Much better with new update!
This is a truly amazing undertaking. I do have to admit it, however the game seems to remain plagued by small issues. For example, after the new update, there is no way to get rid of the log screen after you request to see it. Please fix this. Sound has improved over all.
Still not fixed.
Game crashes on implementation of Apollo 11 launch tutorial. Also, the engine sounds like you're in a wind tunnel, the new version is way better, but still has some kinks.
I wrote a few weeks ago (and I see other commenters saying something similar) that there needs to be an improvement on game instructions (at a minimum). Such has not happened. How long does it take to get together more comprehensive and easily understandable instructions?! Get it together guys!!
Still some issues with sounds and controls. Not all controls work properly and the sound on liftoff doesn't sound right.
Lost in Space
Honestly, I want to rate this 5 stars. I’d love to get those extra Apollo 13 missions. BUT...and this is a BIG but...I spent a fairly decent amount of time on a custom mission, saved the progress, and now? The app crashes every time I try to resume it. Why? I restart the app, it crashes. I choose other saved missions, and it’s fine. I choose THAT particular mission, and it crashes. I feel like what was a waste of time was now also a waste of money. Two hours ago, I would’ve said differently.
The concept of the app is great. Much of the mission detail is incredible. There is a lot to learn from this app, for those so inclined. I was enjoying it, until that which I had learned is now, apparently, lost. Maybe I’ll make use of it again; maybe not. I really wanted to rate this 5 stars. But, now it just feels like a waste of time, and I could’ve spent those $5 elsewhere.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
