Hi all,

I've been away from SSM for a while due to work etc and have just got back to playing it (if thats the right term) and yet again going through the missions has been an absolute pleasure and for a Sim which is 10 years old that is amazing!.

Having read up on the notes and forum it was great to see that you are developing a SSM2 and wow! your doing it with full time jobs as well, that I know is very stressful and time consuming especially if you have families and social stuff to do as well. 

Having looked at the screen shots and videos,  the version 2 looks awesome and as many on here know this is by far the best space simulation software many of us have seen and i've played most of them starting with Rendezvous: a space shuttle simulation, Space Shuttle: A Journey into Space and Project Space Station back in the early 80s (Yes ive been playing and writing games that long and probably longer).

Really looking forward to version 2 and hopefully we will see it soon-ish time permitting and in the mean time i'm going to finish off SSM2007.

Keep up the great work

Hi Macapple,

Never seen that shuttle computer game before.  I see the game designer/programmer for Rendezvous, Wes Huntress, worked at JPL and later went on to become NASA Associate Administrator for Space Science.

Based on that background, my guess is that it was probably a fairly accurate (for the time) shuttle simulator.
