Bit of a weird one this, looks like a futurist version of Orbiter or a space shuttle game so it's going to be realistic and on a full size planet although not much of a planet for sight seeing. Should be out next year. https://store.steampowered.com/app/1069190/Flight_Of_Nova/

 

 

From Steam

  Flight Of Nova is a flight simulation in which you take control of spacecrafts near a planet called NVA-31. As pilot, you train to fly on several types of crafts based on realistic aerodynamic and orbital physic during transport and search mission scenarios.
Missions involves being able to put vessels into orbit, rendezvous with stations, or survive atmosphere reentry to land in one piece at surface outposts.
The planet Nova is about 12'700 km diameter and is at full-scale in the game.

Flight Of Nova features two gameplay modes:
In Scenarios, start at a specific location, altitude and velocity to complete a one goal mission.
In Rogue mode, explore the vast game area from orbital stations to outposts as you gain skills and access more spacecrafts in order to figure out why you were sent on that lost world.

Key Features:

* Realistic gravitation and orbital physics
* Atmospheric density based on earth data
* Aerodynamic drag corresponding to vessel shape
* Drag / air friction energy calculations
* Real-time accurate orbital data
* Orbital stations and docking system
* Planet surface outposts
* Real-time control over crafts
* Full-scale body diameter 12’700 km
* Search and transport missions
* Quick flight challenges

Looks like this game is going to release in May, and it is mainly a docking and landing based simulator style of game (like Lunar Flight). Could be interesting depending on the objectives and mechanics.

Might be a bit basic on the mission types, could really do with making the planet more diverse in the habitats if it's possible to do it with the game engine.

As the title of the video says and is that guy in the vid wearing a crash helmet, classic.  🤣 😎

That's an insane ship! Looks like an absolute bitch to fly!

Haha I don't know if I am coordinated enough to play with foot pedals, throttle and stick all at the same time anymore. But I think my landing would have been a lot more impactful 😉

Visuals are looking great in this, the crash mechanics look good too with the breakup... I am sure I will experience that scene a lot

There is something very attractive about this! The re-entry clips looks seriously good!

Only problem with the game is it may turn out to be a one trick pony as they have not said much about anything else apart from delivering cargo.
