0.1 Alpha 3 Released

Worked a little more on the program. Had to move some stuff around to implement the instrument panel. Needed the Lander and Moon and Timer to be within the Controller in order to access the nib with outlets to change the values of the labels.

Added fuel consumption.

Not sure how this runs on other processors than my own! Play the game and give a little feedback.

Alpha 2 and 3 are easy to tweak the gravity and such if you have a basic knowledge of newtonian physics. If you decide to play with the equations look in: Lander.m for the -(void)move method. Give feedback if you find some better numbers.... read more

Released 0.1 Alpha 2

This project is still quite immature. Physics are now modeled after real equations for gravity and centripetal force. Developers are needed to more quickly implement the features in README.txt.
