Still working on 0.1.1 update, should be ready soon.

- meanwhile, revamped my webpage a bit (https://vdapps.net), where Universe Quest can be accessed. I'm not web dev, just started to learn pure HTML5. Smiley

- added support for Spanish and Slovak languages to Universe Quest (also did some translations already)

- added 'Mission Details' page (screenshot). There's more info about mission than in 'Missions Table' plus larger preview image.

- adding missions and rockets for year 1960 to encyclopedia.

-= Universe Quest v0.1.1 =-
[download link here]

Hi All!

New version of Universe Quest is now accessible on my page. There's more juicy info about historical space missions and rockets plus one brand new screen. Here's short list of what's new:

- added missions for year 1960 to 'Missions Table' screen
- added rockets for year 1960 to 'Rockets Table' screen
- added new screen: 'Mission Detail'. It contains more info about mission, the most juicy one for me is apogee / orbital parameters of mission. This I want to re-use later in mission visualization. From this screen also 'Mission Gallery' will be accessible very soon.
- added support for Spanish and Slovak languages
- row highlight plus clickable element highlight
- nice subtle animation when entering 'Mission Detail' screen

Attaching some screenshots (missions table + rockets table, mission detail is in my previous post)

Thx! Gentleman

I know it's lot of texts now, with not much visuals, so it's mostly for rocketry and space launches nerdies and enthusiasts, but yeah, more visual stuff is yet to come with upcoming releases. Smiley

With these types of projects I think chipping away at this slow and steadily until it's nice and polished is the way to go

If I might offer a suggestion for polish:

"Centred text doesn't always look as good as we think it will"
(Not to mention it's harder to read a paragraph that is centre-justified too)

Just something to keep in mind Wink
(I personally think the columns in the tables would all look much better left-justified)

Good suggestion thanks!

For texts, I'm not sure, I have to try. As you can see, there's limited window for it. I somehow intuitively thought that centered both horizontally and vertically will be the best. I have to check how it will look, justified left and centered vertically, or justified left and not centered vertically (starting from top of its limited window). Also I have to refactor a bit my justification code to support all cases (now if it's center it's in both directions). When I'll do it I will left some shots here for comparison.

Other story is tables. Here, I have no doubts that it can look much better justified. Maybe I would justify numbers, dates and physical values to the right though. But you're right. Maybe I can add also subtle vertical separator lines.
