Build airplanes by snapping parts together, designing wing sections, and attaching engines. At any time, you can strap yourself into the cockpit and see how it flies with realistic physics. If you're not in the mood for building, over 100,000 airplanes are available to download for free.

SimpleRockets 2 Has Launched!

After more than two years of development, it's finally ready! SimpleRockets 2 is now available on Steam for PC and Mac.

SR2 is in Early Access now, so we are going to keep working on it and making it better with every update. Check our roadmap to see how we're doing and if you have any ideas then leave a suggestion here. It's already loaded with features, which you can read about on the Steam page.

Explosions in SR2

When you are building rockets, you're most likely going to run into the occasional rapid unscheduled disassembly. It happens to even the most experienced rocket surgeons. You might as well embrace it and take advantage of the opportunity and snag some spectacular photos.



In addition to the visuals, we also improved the physics of the explosions quite a bit. Now larger fuel tanks will create much larger explosions. We also approximate the surface area of parts and use that to determine how much it should react to an explosion. I've spent far too many hours now sitting on the launch pad blowing up parts before realizing that I had long ago crossed the line between working and playing. Don't tell the other devs.

Here are some more great shots I got this weekend. And of course, a GIF to make this post look complete.



I apologize to the BaconAircraft, Tully, CjrLdy, Shigure, and CoolPeach for blowing up their beautiful crafts.

I would like to apologize to everyone for the intermittent outages on our websites. Our service provider is having issues and they are aware of the issue and working on it. Hopefully, they will figure this out soon.

Also, I should probably mention something about schedule (I know my fellow devs love when I talk about the S-word). We are not going to be launching in October and we are now most likely going to be launching in early November. Please, don't send me any black licorice. I have already purchased some and will be munching on it soon. Sorry for the slippage, but thanks for sticking with us! We hope it will be worth the wait!

About This Game

BUILD AIRPLANES


You have the tools you'll need to bring any airplane to life. Snap parts together to build your airplane's body. Place engines to add thrust. Design and attach wings and then strap yourself into the cockpit and see how it flies.

DOWNLOAD AIRPLANES


Over 100,000 airplanes are available to download for free from SimplePlanes.com Find anything from old WW2 bombers to next generation fighters to sci-fi spacecrafts. You can upload your own airplanes and rise through the ranks from a bronze builder to a gold level builder.

DYNAMIC FLIGHT MODEL


Flight simulation at its finest. Every little change you make in the designer impacts how the airplane flies. Weight distribution, thrust, lift, and drag are all calculated continuously while flying. Parts can break off in spectacular fashion while flying due to over-stress or by hitting something. The fun won't stop there though. You can keep on flying even with a missing wing if you've got the skills.

CHALLENGES


Climb into the cockpit of one of your custom aircraft and see how it does in the challenges. The challenges will keep you entertained for hours. Land on aircraft carriers, escort bombers, dodge surface-to-air missiles, race through courses, and so much more.

SANDBOX


Use all available parts to build airplanes with no restrictions. The sky is the limit. Literally.

MODDING


Modding is fully supported so you can build your own parts and environments. Download our Unity package which includes specially designed tools to aid in designing and building mods which you can then share with your friends and the community.
