About this game

After six years of hard work and commitment, what began as a simple rocket simulator has become a sophisticated aerospace sandbox in which you can bring to life anything you can imagine - from rockets, airplanes, and cars to entire planets. Over time, the more we added, the more SimpleRockets 2 outgrew its name. With much consideration we have decided to change the name to "Juno: New Origins" - a title that symbolizes a new start.

Juno: New Origins is a fully 3D space sim that lets you build rockets, airplanes, rovers, or anything you can imagine and explore highly detailed 3D planets. Easily share crafts and saved games with the community. Included are 17 different challenges to put your creations to the test.

Build crafts by snapping parts together. Choose from the pre-built engines, such as the Mage, which is a powerful kerosene-fueled engine. Or choose the very weak, but highly efficient Ion Engine. Or you can dig deeper into the complexity of rocket science and design your own rocket engines. Choose from the eight available engine types, seven nozzles, and six fuel types. From there you can change engine size, nozzle length, throat radius, and more.

Use interstages to split your craft into multiple stages and piece together modular fairings to protect your precious cargo. Launch multiple crafts into orbit. You can dock with your existing crafts to build space stations, moon bases, refueling stations, etc.

Resize and reshape fuel tanks, wings, cargo bays, fairings, and nose cones with easy-to-use tools that help you create exactly what you want. Resize solar panels, wheels, pistons, shocks, etc to fit your needs. Paint your craft custom colors and tweak their reflectiveness, emissiveness, and texture styles.

Orbits are realistically simulated and support time-warp so you don't have to wait several months to reach another planet. The Map View makes it easy to see your orbits and plan future burns, which you can use to set up future encounters with other planets or satellites.

The flight model dynamically updates drag and lift characteristics of your craft as it changes. Re-entry effects kick in when you're screaming through an atmosphere at hypersonic speeds. Be careful, because the excessive heat can cause those aforementioned rapid unplanned disassemblies.

Download from a huge collection of user-uploaded crafts and sandboxes on our website. Upload your own crafts and sandboxes and share them with the community. Rise through the ranks from a white-level builder to a gold-level builder and beyond.

FEATURES

* Fully 3D Rocket Designer that allows building anything from basic rockets to very complicated multi-stage rockets, airplanes, rovers, satellites, robotic mechs, etc.
* Design custom rocket engines and jet engines

Really nice game. It isn't actually that simple but I like the realism. You can even adjust basically every kind of visual effects so you can optimize it for your liking. The only thing I have a problem with is that there is no docking tutorial but it's not that hard to figure it out. It would be nice if we could get weapons just like in simple planes for a little more fun. Generally a great game and is good for passing time or if you just like spaceflight.

This game is absolutely amazing. The visual effects are good for a mobile game, the amount of customization is good, and there is more than enough exploration to be done. However, there is a slight lack of parts that you can use. I'd suggest adding scientific instruments, inflatable heat shields, maybe support cables. Just all that kind of stuff.

Ever want to just build a rocket, and fly to the moon, just to see if you can do it? This game is fantastic. Works well even on older phones. Makes complex rocket stuff as simple as it can be. Go fast, thrust prograde, keep the pointy part pointed towards the blue part, orbits are easily managed at their high and low points, crashes are part of the game. Ok, boom...you're ready to fly. Developer is very responsive, pleasant, and will even answer your questions on Reddit.

What's new

After six years of hard work and commitment, what began as a simple rocket simulator has become a sophisticated aerospace sandbox in which you can bring to life anything you can imagine - from rockets, airplanes, and cars to entire planets. The more the game has been developed, the less sense it made to call it SimpleRockets 2. For this reason, we have decided to change its name to Juno: New Origins - a title that symbolizes a new start.
