We're back from the break and I think it's about time we started posting a little more frequently about this game we're working on. Every Monday I'm going to post something about the development of the game. We'll call this my New Year's resolution.
Today I'm excited to introduce the first engine we've developed for SimpleRockets 2: The Mage I engine. It was inspired by a real-world rocket engine, but I'll leave that to you to figure out.
Here are its current stats, though to be honest they may change multiple times before we release the game.
- Thrust: 400 kN
- Mass: 450 kg
- Price: $1,000,000
- Height: 2.4 m
- Diameter: 1.0 m
- Max Gimbal Angle: 5 degrees
- Fuel Consumption: 175 L/s
- Specific Impulse: 287 s
- Max Torque: 5 Nm (achieved by gimbaling the turbopump exhaust)
Here's a bonus shot of it in action.
