A Juicy Update w/ ESA for Juno: New Origins

Dev AndrewGarrison  1.3 years ago

We are excited to announce that the newest version of Juno: New Origins includes a collaboration with ESA (European Space Agency) to bring awareness to JUICE (Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer), which is the first European mission to visit a Gas Giant. It launches on April 13th, from Kourou, French Guiana, on top of an Ariane V, heading towards the moons of Jupiter after an insane chain of Gravity Assists.

ESA

To commemorate this launch we have added a new Sandbox Challenge to the game, where you'll be in charge of getting JUICE to visit all moons of Tydos with the least possible Delta-V. In order to better support this mission we have added new properties to the solar panel arrays, such as a new hinge with a custom deployment animation to match the ones in JUICE and the ability to override through the hidden properties how many panels are in each row. Also taking the opportunity to flesh out some issues that the arrays had before.

JUICE


We have put a lot of focus on improving the Map View experience, with an overhaul of the Planned Burns, Closest Approach calculations, clarity improvements and a ton of bug fixes to ensure a smooth experience when visiting other worlds.

Planned Burns


Thanks a lot to ESA for wanting to be a part of Juno: New Origins and bring this amazing mission to the game. All the new features are not just available for the challenge, so you will be able to enjoy the new solar panels and improved Map View in your own careers and sandboxes.

    As much as I would love a big sp update, keep in mind that this launched as a 2014 mobile game and it has lived well past its serviceable life both on pc and mobile. The codebase, assets, game engine... everything would be outdated now, plus the devs don't make anything from rolling out updates since its all a one time purchase.
    I would love to see SP2 at some point though... would definitely buy.

    @Skyler101 So, I'm just gonna waste more money on games that I don't even know how to play? I'm not sure if this is actually going to cost but I don't want to loose the game.
