I remember a game that simulated the space shuttle for the Apple ][ many many years ago that was pretty cool. Detailed in that it dealt with orbital mechanics.

Then there was a Shuttle simulator for the PC...I couldn't find any video of that, as it performed better than this Amiga version of the game. Had all the controls, and a preflight checklist that was pretty complicated. Much of the simulation had to have things done just the way the shuttle did.

This video only shows the liftoff, not really anything that happens inside the ****pit.

I fire up the willing engine, responding with a roar. Tires spitting gravel I commit my weekly crime.
