Some screens from a Mercury Atlas mission I flew. This is a recently released space sim focusing on Mercury, Gemini and Apollo in detail. I'm currently mastering the Mercury capsule, and it's pretty fun to fly. Definitely recommend this title, even in its early access state, especially if you're a space nerd and/or have an interest in flying the spacecraft from the space race era.

The Mercury instrument panel. All switches are interactive and most systems found on the real spacecraft are implemented in the sim.

Wow this looks nice. Thanks for sharing. There was an older sim some years ago that did this same thing though I never played it. Is this on Steam?

That looks pretty cool too F4 but I don't think that's the one I'm remembering. The one I remember I believe was sold from its own website and by today's standards might look a little dated in its graphics. It always interested me though.
