SpaceX is about to fly a Starship to 45,000 and belly-flop to a landing in Texas.
Here's your chance to fly the mission yourself.
And then... try it on Mars.
All with realistic physics.

What’s New

Version 1.15

Updated engine sound based on the SN9 static fire from yesterday.
We now have the 'raptor honk' sound on shut-down as observed on the pad.

Great game with some annoying mechanics

I love the game, it seems realistic and it has a lot of info to consume. A few things I keep getting annoyed by are that if your finger is on the engine button, you can’t move the screen around to get a better view, it just zooms in. This just makes it impossible easily get an orientation of the ground relative to the craft. Another issue is that there is no locked camera view or a way to easily tell which direction you’re facing relative to the direction of travel, it makes it impossible to land the craft with any type of reliability, you’re having to wildly rotate your device to figure out the correct direction all while dealing with a spinning craft because only one engine is firing

A few problems

Hey I’ve been playing this game since the day of the sn8 launch and it is amazing but I have a few issues the earth pad hop and 15km hop work every time but when ever I try to do a Mars mission the game will crash and I have to re open it this happens probably 2/3 time I’m on a iPhone 8 so not a bad phone yet the game still crashes and I can’t find why on top of that I think that on the hop we should be able to turn the amount of thrust down so that we don’t just completely cut all power at once like sn8 did they slowly cut more and more power I understand this would make the game extremely hard but you could put the option in the settings and can we get a refueling animation on the hyperbolic entry that all I have other then that this is one of my favorite games of all times good job

Developer Response ,

The iPhone 8 is a LITTLE tight on RAM... have you tried re-starting the entire phone and not running any other Apps? Does that stop the crashing?

ALSO, some people have seen crashes when they exit a Mars mission and then suddenly re-start it... while data is still loading in the background! I fixed this in 1.12 though!! Are you sure your crash is really happening in version 1.12? You can email me at austin@X-Plane.com or answer in your review.

Challenging in some ways but always entertaining

It seems there’s a base level knowledge about certain things that’s take for granted. Some of the reticle function’s purposes aren’t really clear to me, but I also haven’t really looked into it. I imagine it’s a standard setup that pilots would recognize instantly but the layperson would be unfamiliar with, such as me.

It’s definitely a fun app and clearly he went to great lengths to get the physics right. Hopefully there will be more missions added
