@7yl4r I was thinking about navigating around large asteroid or moon, or even a planet. The whole point is to experience gravitational forces and learn how to navigate. Like instead of trying to fly away from a large mass, instead use it's gravitation to get acceleration so you can easier escape the gravity attraction.

Maybe this could be some kind of launch mini-game (but with a scale where planets/ships are similarly sized)? So you leave the surface and then must achieve orbit and escape velocity by accelerating parallel to the surface?
Could also do landing I suppose.
