The latest additions to the crew module’s life support systems.

Still working on the ship’s front section, but with more systems in place the simulation is starting to provide a better overview of the involved chemistry:

Not detailed in the video, the different sub-panel sections provide the key figures to keep track of the primary flows in the module for detailed analysis and understanding.

There are still a few key systems to implement, starting with the Waste Management Units.

Safe flights! πŸ‘©β€πŸš€πŸ‘¨β€πŸš€

    Do you have any idea when we might be able to try it?

      I wish I had but to be honest I don’t. All I can say is that I’m about to complete the ship’s front section (life support systems), so beginning of next year I will start working on the gamification layer. That’s a major milestone because the project’s end goal is a “spacesim game”, not a pure simulator. However as with all previous features that will be a first for me so I simply don’t have the experience to reliably assess the required coding effort. Since I plan to go on working on the game post its 1.0 release I won’t drag for too long adding overly complex missions and related stuff, but that will assuredly still require quite a lot of work! πŸ‘¨β€πŸ”§πŸ™‚

    It’s up to you if you want to hold off on releasing something until it’s playable as a game, but I think we’d be happy to just take things for a spin and get a feel for the mechanics. Some of us would also be happy to help out with the large amount of testing work that will be necessary πŸ™‚

      I’d say you’ve just described the testing team! If you’re interested all calls to testers go through the newsletter. I must admit that I’ve been behind schedule on that front too but I’ll try to include more new players next year.

    I just came across this amazing game and am floored by the ambition and detail! This really is an sim experience that I want and will gladly pay money for!

    I, too, feel impatient to give this a go. I’d really be glad to give back to the team, if testers of any nature are needed. I’ll definitely keep an eye on the newsletter (that I just sub’d to).

    From the looks of things this has been in the works for a long time, and I really hope that it’s nearing release and that the dev team are committed to seeing it over the finish line.

      Thank you for your encouraging words!
