I just released a new beta on Steam and mobile. It might take a few hours for it to be available on Google Play and it's in review for iOS. It's just a small update that fixes some issues from the last release. Here's the changelog:

  • Added Star Brightness setting to adjust the brightness of the background stars.
  • Disabled space dust particle system in map view.
  • Fixed a bug where the single-door cargo bay would not open.
  • Fixed a bug where the astronaut would try to use the wrong FOV when zooming in.
  • Fixed a bug where the astronaut could not attach the tether to some structures at DSC.
  • Fixed a bug where the sun flare was visible through structures.
  • Fixed a bug where control surfaces would not support Slider 3 or Slider 4.
  • Fixed a bug where the game could get into an endless loading screen after switching crafts via Vizzy.
  • Fixed a bug where a " ." character sequence in a sandbox name would cause the download to fail.
  • Fixed a bug where the reflections of the stars in water would not update as the planet rotated.
  • Fade water reflections as camera altitude increases.
  • Fixed a bug where star skybox can be seen during the day when resuming flight on mobile.
  • Fixed a bug where batteries were included in the wet mass calculation.
  • Fixed a bug where the astronaut's first-person view could not be rotated with the mouse on PC.

    very sure. I love this game. I know they have Simple plans but I don't like it. It is so important to me, that if they added all this that I mentioned in my previous comment I would buy the game again or pay extra money.

    @Felixhdz
    Yea brah, We need some pilots in this game to make it more realistic yea? Cuz I've never seen a pilot flying around with an astronaut suit on. At least not from the planet that I come from, Although it's kinda funny to think how badly pilots would fly when wearing an astronaut suit. Sorry my jokes aren't really that funny, I'm still working on it.

    Fixing the fUnK bug will take longer than it takes for Blue origin to launch the new Glenn or deliver their BE-4s for the Vulcan.

    You have to manually add a “utilization” attribute to the fuel tank in the XML. I haven’t used it yet so I’m not sure how it works. But anyways the valid value is between 0 and 1. @Exorocketboy07

    I imagine, if one day simplerockets 2 astronauts can hold something and can throw and catch something, then there are RTGs electric generators, new hybrid and hypergolic rocket fuels, and cloud

    meanwhile, the update is now excellent. simplerockets provides a panoramic view of the galaxy, a sky full of stars, and can adjust the brightness as desired

    @AndrewGarrison this might be a bug, but the last update claimed to add "utilization for tanks", but it doesn't appear in the sliders of the tank, and even in the xml, doesn't change the capacity. Is this a bug, or is it still a beta feature? Since either way, it isn't really working right now. If it's not meant tl be used like that, just ignore this.

    this is still happening, it doesn’t seem to be actually fixed as of 0.9.801.0 at least on my iPad. Do you want me to make another bug report? @AndrewGarrison
