I got again some questions, but this time not much:
1. What become early, solid rocket parts or liquid rocket parts? And can you early launch a satellite orbital with solid rocket tech or with liquid rocket tech?
The first rocket available is the Jupiter-C. The components used in the mission configurations is fixed, so you won't be able to choose a different one. We made this decision early on in order to keep the renders used to depict the progress of the mission consistent.
2. What for type of unmanned moon missions become available? Only a fly-by and a landing, like BARIS. Or also Orbital, rover and sample-return?
For the Moon missions (i.e., the "Lunar probes" program category) you will be able to choose from lunar flybys, impactors (based on the Ranger program), orbiter, landers (based on the Surveyor program) and sample returns (based on the Luna 15 soviet probe). Part 2 of the game will also feature an "Advanced lunar probes" program category, which features more contemporary missions such as LCROSS, LRO and even some which will be launched soon, such as LADEE
Is there any plans to add more craft with later updates? I really want to try and win the game using mostly Russian made craft like have a LK-700 landing, then launch the Mir and use the Buran to supply it.
Well, So far I read there comes no Buran or other russian / europe spaceplanes in it. But I think there add sure more stuff later in the game
Indeed, if enough players request them, we will consider adding more missions
Update: a screenshot from the "Lunar Probes" program category!
