A new space sim with a focus on Mercury, Gemini & Apollo just released yesterday on Steam as early access. I bought it and tried it out for about an hour. It focuses on realism, and you can go through the checklists and procedures. I'm liking the direction it's taking. The 3D cockpits are really well done. As early access, there are bugs and issues present, but that's to be expected of EA.

I'm in when VR support is added.

Thanks Rambler!

Been looking for something like this for awhile. Wished "Space Shuttle Mission 2007" was updated but doubt that will happen any time soon. Orbiter 2016 is great but in a space/flight sim you practically live in the cockpit, so good up to date graphics is a must for me. This one seems to fill the bill. so bought it! thumbsup

Downloading now...

Seems the Microsoft Store version is more expensive, so Steam it is!

Enjoy...

I have been having a lot of fun with this one. Gemini has a lot of stuff to do. Apollo is still in active development. Only $20 on steam for Early Access.

Me too. Is this something that has been mentioned for this sim?

Go for Launch Mercury is another one with a strong VR focus. I've backed it but haven't had a chance to compare it to Re-entry

Not that I am aware of.
