Things I had no time to implement (SPOILERS!): 

  • Fuel is not spent, you can fly without any tanks
  • The Picraken will catch you if you fly too far
  • You can place parts disconnected and overlap (tho it's unrealistic it's kind of cool that it gives more artistic freedom :D)
  • No part rotation in build mode
  • You can spin up infinitely fast, and everything will be fine
  • No map or zoom out view

Source (only code, cart coming soon): https://github.com/nothke/PicoSpaceProgram

Changelog:

v1:

  • Crash velocity is now calculated correctly
  • The craft gets pushed now when a part crashes into the planet

Nice job! this is a great simulation. Some ideas for the future: 

1) decouplers

2) angular friction

3) zoom in - out

4) atmosphere

these tips might be too hard, but I think it would be AWESOME if you manage to do it!

oh and another one: Map screen

I won't be updating it. But the source is available so you, or anyone else, can add features yourself.

Thank you for informing me about this

Awesome game! Could you just please make a downloadable version? Thanks!

Uhhh... How do you progress and reach other planets. I just keep flying out of the screen and it glitches out. how do you win.

good so far and has some serious potential. some more parts and a big map would be nice, maybe even some more planets. I cant wait to see further updates!

I might fix some bugs and clean up the code, but I don't think I will work on it much more unfortunately. I just have too many other projects to work on. However the source is out there and anyone could add to it.

i broke the game

Congrats! :D

not realy i couldn't restart because the clicker what out and the ship wont crash

You can press enter and go to the build mode from the menu

oh i dident know that thanks
