The command pod from SimpleRockets 1 has undergone some changes. Adding the third dimension was a big upgrade. We also added some new features, such as a built-in gyroscope and batteries. We've done what we can to get the mass down, but it is still a whopping 1,250kg. We may add the ability to toggle certain features off to reduce the overall mass for those of you who really want to maximize your delta-V's. Philip suggested that we should add an option to remove the top of the command pod and replace it with a tarp.

The new command pod is not human-rated yet so it can only be used for transporting cargo to and from outer space. But who knows? Maybe someday we will get that certification and be able to transport astronauts into space.

  • Mass: 1,250 kg
  • Price: $500,000
  • Battery Capacity: 25kWh
  • Crew Capacity: 0 (currently)
  • Diameter: 1.5m (4.9 feet)
  • Height: 1.25m (4.1 feet)

Here's a bonus shot.

    @AndrewGarrison can you make sure when you do decide to add humans in this game can you make them get out of command pods or capsules and do astronaut things like incorrect please flags and planets fix things astronaut type stuff I’d really appreciate it :)
