In SimpleRockets 2, there was recently a new tag added in the game. It’s name was “Device Killer”, and that just made many say: challenge accepted. As a mobile player myself without much influence on a mostly PC community, I would like to make the following statement widely known. As many of the bigger accounts on the website are making bigger and bigger crafts, I would like some to be of a less part count yet still aesthetically pleasing to me and the other mobile players. The purpose of SimpleRockets is to make realistic crafts, yet keep them available for all or most to enjoy. Only a few other people to hear and share this can make a difference, anyone help with my dilemma.
Comments are appreciated, I will answer them all within some time.

    I mean potato pc's could die too not just mobile, some mobile devices also has high specs so just saying ... But as a mobile player, i dont feel being left out so its all good. But my suggestion for a fix to this issue is the game to have a stock block that is as customizable as fuselages and only has appearance data and has no extra calculations like lift, drag, etc... therefore this block will have less xml code written in it and then it can be used for detailing a craft

    The “device killer” tag is useful because they help identify crafts that may not run well on more modest devices (i.e. “potato” devices).

    That is not the exact purpose. I know SimpleRockets2 has realistic components but the main purpose of this game is to have fun. Go build the crafts you like and post them on the site; that’s a fun thing to do, there is no obligation to make crafts according to expectations. If this “realism but interoperable” argument were to be prioritized, it will create a society, where users who build more realistic, simpler, but boring crafts get the most praise while the other users who create unrealistic, over complicated, but aesthetically pleasing crafts get shunned for not being “realistic” enough. Remember that a discriminatory society is not a loving society and nobody wants that.
    .
    To note... I myself am a mobile user but I have SimpleRockets2 in my computer. It should be noted that mobile users outnumber computer users in population size, yet appear to be more diverse, since people use more phones than computers nowadays.

    Not at all. The purpose of SimpleRockets 2 is for fun, and this applies to everyone. Everything else should be second to that, within reason. This means they should be able to build what they want, without an arbitrary obligation.

    1. Mobile players outnumber PC players, PC players just generally make better, more detailed crafts than do mobile players.
    2. If you think there is a lack of aesthetically pleasing crafts that have low part counts on this website, make your own and publish them.

    Personally I feel PC needs a title like device killer. Its only fair seeing as there is a mobile friendly tag as well.
    Everyone gets a tag! Thats fair

    I don’t want to seem rude or anything but people can build how they want, when they want, etc. Sure, people won’t like what others make, weather it’s too low effort or has too many parts, but that doesn’t mean they should adjust how they build specifically for those other people, you for example. I don’t know what you mean by “mobile players left in the dust” because I’m a mobile player and I don’t feel left out on anything, I can ask a few of my friends who are also mobile players and they’ll likely say the same thing. Some of the most talented builders here don’t have a pc, just to put that out there.
