I’m happy to announce that due to many requests/suggestions and the awesomeness of the Curiosity Mars Landing, the next Lunar Flight update will feature a Mars Map and will be suggested as (Expert Difficulty). I’ve been doing a bit of thinking about it and it seems like a great concept to pursue.
Clearly this is a fictional scenario and the LM was never designed for Mars but it should make for a fun new set of challenges. Featuring a brand new Ambient Music Track from Jason Poots, Mars will also be a visual contrast to the Moon. A variety of terrain features, eroded from water flows, dusty clouds and dense fog. We are also looking into to adding dust build up on the LM which will be spotless clean when you get a New LM.
For the experienced Module Pilot, Mars offers a new set of physics dynamics to add to the mix. With it’s higher gravity constant and low atmospheric density creating drag, fuel consumption will be higher. This will be a level that you will want to have your LM upgraded for but the Mission rewards will be worth it.
This will be a free content update to say thankyou to all the people who have supported the project thus far. You have been waiting for something new to play and the update will include additional Achievements to get and a new highest Rank, Level 8 (Title TBD)
There will be further announcements in the coming weeks about additional new features coming to Lunar Flight.
