Rocket Launch Sim

Use C# in Visual Studio with Unity to create Rocket Launch Sim, a simulation of the physics and materials needed to create successful, far-reaching rockets. Learn about rocket physics, thrust, drag, and lift, and then create a strict materials budget for the player to use when preparing for launch!

To create this game, follow these steps:

  1. Download and install Unity 5.2 or higher if you don't have it.
  2. If you don't have Visual Studio, choose to install Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition while installing Unity. This will also install Visual Studio 2015 Tools for Unity for you.
  3. Once both Unity and Visual Studio are done installing, download the Rocket Launch Simulator files on GitHub.
  4. Follow along with the Office Mix presentation here to begin creating and coding!
