SimpleRockets 2 - Steam Page

SimpleRockets 2 now has a coming soon page on Steam along with a new teaser trailer to entice you to come check it out!

We're still shooting to release on Steam Early Access this summer. We plan to keep adding features and responding to player feedback until we feel the game is ready, at which point we will release the final version on all platforms at the same time. This includes iOS, Google Play, Humble, GOG, and of course Steam (Windows and macOS).

Minor update (v1.7.1.0)

Some of you have noticed that a small update has been released.

Why are we releasing such a small update?

I'm sure a lot of you may have noticed emails from a bunch of companies with updated privacy policies in response to GDPR. We have been doing preparation ourselves and decided to ease the burden by removing non-essential third-party libraries from SimplePlanes, giving us less to worry about. This includes the Facebook SDK, Unity Analytics, and Everyplay (since it was discontinued by Unity).

We also removed the ability to register from within the game and now redirect to the website to centrally locate account creation.

We didn't want to make it totally feature-less though, so Andrew included a few XML modding related items that advanced modders have been asking for.

I know it may be disappointing to see an update come down the pipe with so few features, but rest assured that we will resume working on 1.8 later this year as we've previously discussed.

Official release notes:
  • Removed Everyplay. Unfortunately, Everyplay is shutting their services down, so we had to remove it.
  • Removed in-game registration. Registration must now be done through
  • Added dragScale, calculateDrag, and diffuseInertiaTensors XML attributes

About This Game


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.


Over 100,000 airplanes are available to download for free from 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.


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.


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.


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


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.
