The Mars Simulation Project, a free software Java project to create a simulation of future human settlement of Mars, is now at version 3.04.

The Mars Simulation Project takes its job very seriously and even if it might look like a game, it's actually a social simulation.

The software is modeling the human behavior of scientists, engineers, doctors, technicians, in their everyday lives, on an alien planet.

Highlights of Mars Simulation Project 3.04:

• Local X, Y locations have been added for people and vehicles in the simulation;
• Vehicles are now displayed on the settlement map tool;
• New arriving settlements can be created/edited with the resupply tool;
• A new tutorial window, that displays when a new simulation is created (Lars), is now available.
