As the 1.0 release gets closer I've been thinking more and more about how the SimpleRockets 2 title isn't fair to what the game really is: It's not really a sequel to SR1, it's not just about rockets and it's far from simple. Earlier this year I discussed with some people on discord what they thought of an idea I had with @AntiMod, when discussing that same topic: Juno.
Juno is the main star in the stock system, what holds all planets together, and the first thing all players have seen so far when launching the game. On top of that, it's a catchy, easy to remember and unique name that, in my opinion, could represent the game really well. Most people seemed to like the idea, so I brought it to the rest of the team and, as you can imagine by this message, now we are seriously considering it.
The thing is, just Juno doesn't feel like a great game name, so we want to bundle it with something more, to better represent the gameplay experience and to make it a memorable title. Between the team and the users at discord we came up with many ideas, but most of them had to be discarded for different reasons (already existing games or companies, hard to pronounce/remember names, ...). The result is a form, that won't be conclusive but that will help us to make a more informed decision about what to do:
Call it ComplexRockets.
Maybe call Program:Juno or SpaceJuno
@InnovaAerospace now that's a name I can support
If we name it "Juno Engineering sandbox" then it would attract some people who wanna make tanks, robots, and some other stuff. Is that good? (ksp can't accuse us of copying)
@XspaceORBIT Ye it sounds nice
Honestly, please keep it the same
Well who you like this

When is the new update coming out.
@XionmassResearchDevt nobody is ghosting you
@Pedro why do you treat me like a Ghodt basically ? I know I'm old but .. Ghosting is a basic term of pretending someone doesn't exist
Juno isn't beautiful name for this game
Maybe Juno space ... Agency? Simulator? Programm? No! We Need original Title!
You can rename whatever you want just please keep simple in it
I'm sorry... I had to remove my upvote to keep the balance
cuando la siguiente actualizacion
But for me is lol
Drood Space Program:interstellar planets is lol or not
Do not change the name pls,it's good enough now.We should not forget our original intention and where we started because of we went to another beyond or made more progress.We can add a suffix to the existing name instead of changing it as a whole.
juno space and rocket design?
Take this with a gran of salt. I think renaming it is a great idea but Juno just doesn't really hit the spot
@FelixFan1 @12ocketguy It's very important who wins this argument. The fate of the of SR2 depends on it!
