When 1.0 came out there were two clear problems with the progression of Career mode: planes going from gliders to jet engines and crew not being relevant. We took our time because we wanted to get things right, and I think you will like what the result is.

We like things being procedural, giving you as much flexibility as possible when building the wildest of creations. Who would've guessed, procedural isn't easy! The new propeller part is the result of many months of work, starting last year, and it is a game changer for both air and water vehicles.

One of the main complaints we have received since the release of 1.0 is that the game lacks some soul. We think flossing or doing weird faces would be out of character for the Droods, but we want to let you do whatever you want. So if you want to floss, you can floss, all you want!

Until now, whenever you had crew sitting in a chair in your crafts they were forced to stay in a boring and rigid pose. With 1.1 we are adding puppeteering options to the chairs, so you can have your crew interact with the controls in your craft, dance, or even make all sorts of torture machines.

After 1.0 many smaller updates came with Quality of Life improvements, and that wasn't all we had to come in that department! 1.1 comes with overhauled sounds, more accessible tutorials, context menus in Map View, resizable Info Panels and a cheat menu in flight so you will never have to open the dev console ever again.

Cheats will show up both in Sandbox and in the new game mode, Hybrid, that combines all of the missions from Career with all the fun from Sandbox, with infinite money, everything unlocked from the get go, cheats, saved launch locations... We can't wait to see all the crazy ways you can figure out how to do The Jump.

That's not all! 1.1 also brings resizable blocks and a new version of it that not only looks like a sphere but uses a sphere collider, and we also made intra-craft docks a thing, making some even wilder creations possible.

There's lots more in the update that you can find in the full Release Notes and more to come in the coming weeks, including the Crew and Tourist contracts.


In Patch 1.1.105 we have added some neat features for Crew Transfer, Vizzy and tests for rescue contracts.

And in Patch 1.1.106, new test contracts and bug fixes.

    Join the Steam beta by right-clicking Juno: New Origins in the Steam client -> Properties -> Betas -> and then select "beta_1.1" from the dropdown.

    MOBILE PLAYER!

    I see what you are about to comment, hold on: We don't have a date yet for the mobile beta, but we expect it to be out by the end of June. This is an expectation, not a confirmation.

    Anyone else still having crash issues where the game data is deleted after reboot? Yet again I've lost an entire career that was almost FULL of tech and several planets missions.

    Used to be just getting past 100 missions was impossible, but now it's happening after I get to Cylero.

    I even got a better device, a tablet, to run this and it's still happening.

    What's worse is I can't even find the "save to device" option anymore, so I've no backup.

    That's a lot of work just lost, and while I enjoy playing it's still insanely irritating

    @kidsameri if you have iOS, open up TestFlight and the beta should be ominously lurking.

    @Pedro Also when cloning parts, you may have cut a corner or two or simply forgot to change the text from ‘cloned one parts’ to ‘cloned one part’ when using the multi-clone tool on one part.

    @Pedro As I mentioned on another post, there is no longer an option to edit astronauts names anymore. How come did you remove the ability to put custom astronaut names in?

    Could someone give me a link to a video or forum that describes how to use the planet studio. I cant figure it out.

    @Pedro When the command pod is not set as primary, but the drood instead.
    When the astronaut comes out from chair, the plane or anything shuts down.

    @ivansheppard853 I doubt that’ll happen. Given the polish and effort on JNO relative to SP, it appears that Juno is the flagship game that may phase out SimplePlanes.

    @Pedro When will simpleplanes have electric motors, spot/floodlights, batteries and solar panels like Juno new origins? SP should give ppl the option to build electric planes, not only fuel powered ones.

    @Captainboeing it does work even if uncrewed

    I am not demanding anything new, i just want autopilot in the command pod to work when droods are out of chair. That helps when you are in an SSTO going up in the air and maybe you want to explore your craft from the inside.
