Description

Space Station Simulator is a single player educational title.

With this product the player can build their own space station using the component modules that, at the time this was released, were being constructed by various national space agencies. The player can choose between building a station of their choice or they can follow the official launch sequence and build a replica of the real thing. Once built the player can view the station from within and from space. Inside the station there are hotspots which bring up descriptions of key pieces of equipment.

The product contains copious help files that document the origins, purpose, power usage and weight of each module and the associated launch vehicles.
When it was released the game supported links to the Maris web site which, in addition to providing information about the game, linked to other space station resources. Sadly in 2015 this is no longer operational.

This would have been the site to which the game's internet function would have linked to. It describes the features of version 1.1, the WIN 95 version, and has links to related web sites. It also has a download section where the player could download the modules needed to build the Russian MIR space station)
