A quick hotfix (1.03)

Just a quick hotfix to fix a recently discovered bug in the Career mode.
Other changes include:
  • you can control the ship directly with a mouse. To do this, DISABLE "mouse control" and select mouse axes in "pitch", "yaw", or "roll" windows. (click add, select mouse and then select desired axis and direction from drop-down menu)

  • added option to invert mouse Y axis for a standard "mouse control" mode

About This Game

In space no one can hear you drift...

Orbital Racer is a single-player racing simulator set in space. It combines the freedom of movement of 6DOF space simulators with the thrills of racing.

The game offers two distinct game modes:


This mode is all about fast, satisfying gameplay. Just jump into the cockpit and use your speed and available powerups, including explosive missiles and mines to beat your opponents.


This mode puts much more emphasis on realism. All ships behave according to Newtonian laws of physics with plausible thruster forces. This makes flying much more challenging but also uniquely satisfying as you'll be sliding sideways at the limits of controls most of the time.

Other main features of the game:
  • fully customizable controls
  • 8 distinct locations, all based on real places in our Solar System
  • a total of 24 tracks
  • a full, playable flight school for Simulation mode.
  • 3 different ship models, each with additional 3 variants
  • a challenging yet flexible AI
  • custimizable races
  • a compelling career mode
