Note: Check the FAQ here before asking questions.

We've just completed development of the second engine in SR2. The Pixie engine is a much smaller alternative to the Mage engine with far better gas mileage. This makes it suitable for those second stages destined for Smoon. With an accordingly lower thrust, it is also a lot easier to land on a low-G planetary body without getting into an endless cycle of up-and-down that I often find myself in when trying to land with a Mage engine.

Here are the details:

  • Thrust: 50 kN
  • Mass: 75 kg (165 lbs)
  • Price: $150k
  • Height: 1.0 m (3.2 ft)
  • Diameter: 0.7 m (2.3 ft)
  • Max Gimbal Angle: 10 degrees
  • Fuel Consumption: 15 L/s
  • Specific Impulse: 339 s
  • Max Torque: 5 Nm

Here's a bonus shot of it in action.

Also, I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm going to start posting blog updates every other week instead of every week. It's been fun, but these posts take a lot of time to put together and as we continue to slip further and further behind schedule, I need to use any extra time I can find to focus on development. I hope you understand!

    @Creeperstudiis dude, calm down and let them take their time in making the game. The only thing that will come of constantly asking when it comes out will be us getting a rushed and unfinished game.

    @Why7090 If your mod only consists of scripts, you can spend the majority of your time in VS, but unfortunately you will also need Unity to build the mod.

    皮鞋 engine ?!
    How will modding be in SR2? I'd like to use Visual Studio instead of the complete(and outdated) Unity engine to write a code-only mod.
