    I think I saw one, a few years back. Check your $5.00 racks, or search for it online.

  6. The only shuttle simulator I recall is one made by Virgin Software, part of the company that owns Virgin Records. The simulator was actually called "Shuttle" and was released some time in the early 90s. I had for a while but traded it in a long time ago. It was a great simulator at that time. You could simulate actual launches, were responsible for activating certain functions on the shuttle at various points of the flight and mission, and once you made it into space, had to complete deployment of certain payloads. Several missions were included. You also had to re-enter earth's atmosphere with certain controlled burns and land the shuttle. Graphics were not what they are today, but it was a worthy game. I'm surprised is hasn't been updated by now. Check E-Bay or local computer stores in your area that specialize in trade-ins. Good luck at garage sales. Another one they should re-release is Buzz Aldrin's Race Into Space.

    You don't by any chance mean Virgin do you?

    Acutually "X-Plane" has an option to fly a space shuttle on Mars and in space.

    As was said earlier, Shuttle from Virgin (1992) was just about the best shuttle simulator - much more in depth than M$ later offering.<br>

    And shuttle works on a 386, anyone still got one?<br>

    Yes there is.I saw one about a week ago.With a screen name like English guy,I`m gonna go out on a limb here and guess that your:-ENGLISH!!!!!.<br>
    If so go down to your local BARGAIN BOOKS store and have a sift thru their PC CD software.I saw a Shuttle Sim in there last week,it actually looked pretty good,and I nearly bought it myself.I dont think it was the DOS type like the other posts refer to.<br>
    Tell u what I will go and get it tomorrow,it was only about £2.99 or so,and I will let you know what its called and whether its worth getting!!!!.<br>
    Meantime go have a look tomorrow and see if its there!!!!. <IMG SRC="smileys/wave.gif">
