SimpleRockets 2 is a continuation of the space simulator that was released in 2015. Although the theme of its predecessor has been preserved, the mechanics in SimpleRockets 2 have been somewhat extended. The game was created and published by Jundroo studio.
Mechanics in SimpleRockets 2 have been extended in relation to the first installment. Again, the game focuses on the construction of vehicles in a special editor; the range of possible vehicles has been extended and apart from spacecraft, players can now construct planes, among other things. The parts made available for this purpose have become fully modifiable, so that their shape can be adapted to suit one's needs. Additionally, the possibility of editing the engines of the vehicle itself has been introduced.
The exploration of space has also been improved. A successful flight depends on the right amount of fuel and vehicle control. Due to the introduction of three-dimensional visuals, control takes place in two planes, and not - as in the previous installment of the series - in one. The trajectory planning tool has been modified, which allows for more precise planning of the path. The planetary atmosphere, which heats materials to high temperatures, also plays an important role. If the design is unsuitable, it may cause their destruction and destruction of the entire ship.
Vessels created in SimpleRockets 2 can be shared with the gaming community. The projects made available in this way can be downloaded from the official production website.
In contrast to its predecessor, SimpleRockets 2 offers fully three-dimensional visuals. Again, the emphasis put is on the realistic behavior of the vessels, compliant with the laws of physics.
