Crawler-transporter : from wikipedia

The crawler travels along the 5.6 km (3.5 mi) crawlerway at a maximum speed of 1.6 km/h (1 mph) loaded,
or 3.2 km/h (2 mph) unloaded.

Just curious, does any of this stuff actually function? I can't imagine it all working in a game like this.

Straight to the point, thank you for the question DuckiestBoat959.

Space vehicles are already presented in the VSF.
Space Shuttle Orbiter Columbia & SpaceShipOne from the download page can fly outside the atmosphere.
The only difference is that instead of unlimited fuel they actually need a carryer or boosters to go into orbit (or suborbit).
The Crawler Thransporter crawls unhurriedly through the VSF sceneries too.

The idea of STS project is to show interaction of different vehicles in the VSF.
And I dare to suggest it is possible.
