I will also note that the Facebook page for Exciting Simulations' last post was about a year ago. If I had to guess I would say that someone got very ill, got into some legal trouble or there's some internal problem that has put things on hold. I have a hard time believing that a year of progress is being made with no word on what that progress is. Still, not complaining due to the fact that finding SSM2007 was a fluke for me and I never thought I'd find a proper "sequel" to the old Space Shuttle sim from the 90s. If SSM2 happens it happens. My money is still ready to slap down on it. If not, I'm glad some people got together to make the one we have.

Here's to hoping for the best to all involved - Cheers!

I agree.  SSM2007 was money well spent for me and I would pay money for an improved expanded version if it ever does get released.  For whatever reason, it sure does appear to be currently stuck in the mud.  From the info released in the past, it does appear that a significant amount of development has already occured and thus it would be tragic if for whatever reason this version does not ever get released.

So I will continue to check back on a regular basis hoping against hope that this version does get completed and released.

Exactly what I think.

But we won't get a precise answer. They're closing threads meanwhile, as soon as there is too much questioning and complaining (as a result of not providing a precise answer for what's going on, while it's obvious that SSM is on a halt).

Definitely SSMS2 has stopped and probably been abandoned, I've not many doubts an that, considering your observations about new news, no screenshots, no Facebook  updates, nothing in last year ore more.
And only thing they're just doing is lock these kind of threads...

Pity.

I am usually in the camp of just giving them their time to develop the game...

but with that being said, I would greatly appreciate an update.    Greatly appreciate it.

I hope it isn't a serious legal issue. We all know how long they can take to sort out....

No,no! The SSMS2 is not vaporware. The development of SSMS2 is slower than planned. That is all. Thanks!

No more doubts : 99% vaporware.
Absolutely.

Real pity  Undecided

P.S. Only partially-leaving activity is locking threads where we ask for more infos about SSMS2

Hi, guys!

What a bummer! Is there any other websites that have a space shuttle simulator? Thanks! I really enjoy playing the SSM2007!

I get the feeling that it IS a serious legal issue, because one of the downsides of something like that is TOTAL SILENCE until the issue has been resolved.

I hope that I am wrong, but I worry that I am not  Sad
