Microsoft Space Simulator..


Recommended Posts

Anyone remember this?




One impressive thing was the totally complete and extensive documentation. An example of what can be done when even a modicum of funds are poured into a project. It has even been said it was an early attempt at Microsoft trying to create an online community.


Anyway it's an example of something way before its time. Thankfully we have a few other sandbox/simulation options today that are thriving and free. Or next to free.

I bought this software CIB at a garage sale in about the early-1990s. I am not into astronomy, but I had a lot of fun with it. The visuals were just amazing.


I remember that it was easy to select any planet (and immediately put a space ship into orbit around it).
