SatStatSim: A SpaceGambit funded adventure.
As I alluded to earlier, we’ve got a new project for the next few months, some sexy space simulations we were funded for by SpaceGambit.
Lacking any creativity, our Satellite and Station Simulator is currently called SatStatSim, and it’ll split the difference between games and hard math simulators, so that students and New Space enthusiasts alike can enjoy it.
The initial version will support a range of orbital objects from cubesat to small manned stations. Put together your own pet designs using modular parts, hit the button, and see what kind of performance you can get. What sort of problems plague satellites and stations in orbit, what features can you get?
I’m really excited about this project, not only is it a great project I think lots of people will have fun with, but it’ll be useful math for building better stations for our sci-fi rpg, because we’re crazy completionists.
SatStatSim will be an open-source project, and we’ll be setting up a separate website for support and discussion soon, as well as hosting public discussion at CrashSpace. Excelsior!
