After many corrections, I managed to reach a geostationary orbit over Droo.

Satellite data:
Planet: Droo
Velocity: 1.252 m/s
Altitude: 8.863 km

Orbit data:
Eccentricity: 0.0
Inclination: 0.09 º
Semi-Major Axis 10.138 km
Apoapsis: 10.138 km (8.863 km of height)
Periapsis: 10.138 km (8.863 km of height)
Right Ascension: 5.96 º
Arg of periapsis: 355.07 º
True Anomaly: 294.22 º
Period: 14.12 hours

Every two years you begin to see the differences between periods of the satellite and Droo, because the orbit is not perfect. There will probably be future updates.

Game Version: v 0.6.8.1 E.A.
I hope is useful data : )

    @JVGG the solar system data is located in AppData\LocalLow\Jundroo\SimpleRockets 2\UserData\SolarSystems\__default__\SolarSystem.xml

    @WNP78 how to access to the game data?

    Now you can play and test by yourself : )

    My attempts to get Geostationary Orbit:

    The period is the information that the game shows me about the orbit: 14.12 hours

    In the previous version I made an attempt to get this orbit that has the following data:

    Eccentricity: 0.00
    Inclination: 4.49 º
    Semi-Major Axis: 10, 040km
    Apoapsis: 10,040km (8,766km of height)
    Periapsis: 10,040km (8,766km of height)
    Right Ascension: 14.35 º
    Arg of periapsis: 74.60 º
    True Anomaly: 188.38 º
    Period: 13.92 Hours

    In this case the planet turns slower compared to the satellite and the difference of periods is also much bigger.
    Therefore the period of the planet is greater than 13.92 hours and the height the radius of the orbit has to be bigger than 10,040 km (8,766 km).
    As you can see I've managed to improve this orbit.
    The reference point is the star that has Droo in map view.

    @WNP78 all calculations were made in the game because I don't know how to access the game data.

    I have the sandbox but I don't know how to upload.

    (in the game file, smearth's angular velocity is 0.0002493327502849042 radians per second. 2π÷0.0002493327502849042 = 25200 seconds = 420 minutes (Elon is proud) = 7 hours.

    How did you measure 14.2 hours? I had it as 7 exactly...

    According to @WNP78 , " Theoretical Droo Geostationary orbit: 8,803.730 km "

    This was posted last year on the SimpleRockets Chat Discord by him.

    it might be 8805km...…..

    The planet turns a little faster.
