    So how would you match the difficulty? Real Isp engines would be OP for stock system.

    So... not to be that guy, but are the graphics going to get better? I feel like activating the rocket engine on the launch pad looks really fake, even compared to SP

    @bartekkru100 I'm not "Laweacosmica", but that "cheap clone" (that actually costs 39 dollars), is KSP or "Kerbal Space Program", and it's actually not a clone, it's around from 2011.

    By the way, that screenshot is obviously from a save with mods, and a lot of them.

    EDIT: But, I think that SR2 is more worth it...

    Just a heads up, when the site went down for maintenance, it said that 'SimplePlanes' is down for maintenance - on this website.

    Hmmm, that's a cool idea. Might happen once we get life support.
