Same thing here, I was very disappoint.


Though on another note
It would be awesome if the game made you start from scratch technology wise, start you out with like only solid fuel rockets then work your way up to the big stuff.

I found one thing that helps to land on the moon is to toss one more stage on the ship that ditches the main booster and opts for a set of much smaller ones, trying to land with a large engine is almost impossible, even at the lowest throttle it was too much power to try and land with, once you start drifting sideways when trying to land it's a pain.

Closer than I ever got. I missed earth orbit on my way back from the moon and got pulled into the third planet's gravity. I ran out of fuel while trying to make it back so I'm drifting. It'll only take 596 real days to orbit the sun.

I need to play with the demo more, the rocket editor drives me nuts with which points it decides it wants to snap something to. It may be me not understanding the interface well, so I just need to screw around with it more.


This is what got me interested in messing around with it, love the Node/Rocket Jump LAN Party videos:

Well done I honestly thought the rocket would self destruct with that much boost off the pad but you proved me wrong

Lol some of my best rockets were the ones where i would think "yea there is no way this thing is getting off the ground. I had one rocket that was 5 concentric rings, each stage would drop an outer band bit by bit while having all my fuel routed inwards.
