SimpleRockets2 is already a good game, but there are a few tweaks that would be seriously exciting to see made:
1. Bi, Tri, and Quad adapters
Allow you to turn one end into 2, 3, or 4! Works well for attaching multiple engines. on one spot without the hassle.

  1. RCS engines consume WAY too much monopropellant.
    Making a slider for fuel consumption and/or flat out making them consume less fuel will save me from putting several tons of monoprop on a rocket I’m trying to keep light

  2. Ion engines
    I know they’re designed to be “low power and very efficient engines,” but they produce almost no thrust. I have 35 of them on one rocket (using an infinite fuel tank that weighs 0 pounds) but even after ages of burning at full thrust I only sped up by like 4 meters/sec.

  3. Planets
    The planets look stunning (especially Urados), but that’s not the point. When I take a look at the map, it looks too sparse or dry. New planet analogs such as Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Neptune (maybe a dwarf planet of some sort) would be SO COOL to get to and explore.

  4. Science experiments
    I’m currently working on a plane that is designed to fly around for long periods of time and gather valuable data. Problem is, there’s no data to gather. Experiments such as a Thermometer, Seismometer, Barometer, and Hygrometer would give my landers, rovers, and even planes some purpose other than looking cool.

  5. Power sources
    RTGs, fuel cells, you know. All the good stuff. Solar panels charge too slow, and batteries are heavy. The more solar panels I add on, the laggier the game gets. Having a metric crap ton on RTGs on one craft would not only look like a space porcupine, but would be more efficient at generating power

  6. Different types of cockpits and/or passenger bays
    Self explanatory

  7. EVA
    I know this is already in question, but I’m just supporting the cause.

  8. Dedicated booster separating rockets
    I know you could just fool around with SRBs, but that’s too much work. I know you can relate.

  9. Atmospheric entry/re-entry fire
    Self explanatory

  10. Having the sun not be a 2 dimensional disk in the sky (in space)
    Having the sun be a sphere instead of a 2D pixelated disk would give me a lot more reasons to use it as a cheese grater for rockets.

Things on this list may be added/taken away in the future depending on updates. I’m not trying to sound demanding, (and I know making a game takes s* tons of time), so don’t judge.

    (and if you want planets try ESS and simplegalaxy if your on android or pc it will work there)

    @Chtite451SR2 but if you point the heat shield at the sun and orbit not too close it will survive :)

    Well actually I didn’t (overload doesn’t exist for iOS)

    @Giggitymerf if you want the link to my solar probe you can find the craft here I don’t remember if I did the overload on the heat shield

    i do have a solar probe so i can get very close :P (overload = 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 heat shield lol :P)

    About the seperation motors, i dont think we need them but changing the smallest possible size of SRMs would help as i sometimes find myself having to xml-edit the size down as its just to big, especially on LESs.

    1: we already have adapters
    1: you can change the power in part settings
    2: they are meant to be used for satellites, I have used them and personally they are TOO powerful
    3: I agree, more planets are better but the small dev team needs some time to finish the game first
    4:career mode is coming soon
    5: nothing really used that much power, solar is fine and if it’s not enough just make a solar farm, they look awesome!
    6: you can build that
    7:they are adding it
    8: no need for that, what we have works
    9: we have that
    10: that might be incredibly laggy

    You can turn on re-entry effects in the settings.
