Default Space Simulator for iOS

Hi all,

If anyone is interested in serious space flight simulation games then do keep an eye out on Space Simulator, [URL="http://www.space-simulator.com"]www.space-simulator.com[/URL], to be released end of this year. It's got real physics and real 3D flight controls for the Apollo and Shuttle missions. The screenshots are beautiful to look at. Hope you enjoy it!

This looks awesome! Been waiting for this kinda sim for a while, hopefully it's good. From the screenshot it looks pretty great so far.

3D models look Ok-ish but those textures and especially lighting/shading could get some serious improvements because imho even these small GPUs in iPads can handle much better graphics than presented on screenshots I hope you will show some improvements when the game will be ready.

Anyway, good luck with the further development

Also on their website www.space-simulator.com they have submitted to Apple for approval. Looks promising, I absolutely adore me some space and this promises to let your inner space geek astronaut.....well geek out! Amazing how far mobile and iPad gaming have come, hope TA does a look on this as well.

Is this just on ipad or ipad and iphone. I have researched it a lot this morning and it seems
like it may be on phone too just not sure. I hope so this sounds just like the sim I have wanted for a while now on iphone. Anyone know for sure let me know. If this is only on ipad this would be the most heart breaking mobile game news for me this year and prolly wont be topped.
I plan on getting an ipad soon anyway but this game will not get the praise it would if it was universal. Games that are ipad only do not do as well as games that can be played on both pad and phone.

hi guys.

Im JCarrion, the developer of Space-Simulator.

yep , Im aiming to a universal build , .. but due to time constrains , I ll release first the iPad version ( 2, 3, 4 ,air ,air2 ) , in both 32 and 64 bit
versions.

The app runs in an iphone4 with no major probls , with quite a good framerate. Im now re-designing the UI , as simply scaling down the buttons woudlnt work ( too small ) , also , some of the text of the MFDs wouldnt fit on smaller screens, so I need to change quite a few things .

I expect the iPhone version to be ready in a month or so after the tablet version launch .

Hi JC.
Thanks for dropping by! I can imagine fitting to phone sizes will be a challenge for all the on-screen info, good luck with that!

I'll be playing on an iPad for sure.
Any idea when that will be released? Can't wait to explore this one it looks and sounds mighty impressive!
Very obviously a labour of love. Maybe you should get a deal with NASA!!
