Space Docking Sim 2014 2014


Third Ludum Dare of 2014 in early December and one of the first times I've had the time to participate and the sense to find a managable project for the time.

Use the rockets to align your ship with the space station docking port then gently bring your ship in and make a connection. There is a green marker on the gimbal, bring this to the top to align your ship's axis with the axis of the station (in Baby Difficulty, it is already perfectly aligned)

Use R to reset and T to change the difficulty, there are four settings:

Baby (just thrust towards and you'll align perfectly)

Standard (keep calm and you'll ace this too)

2001 (match rotational axis then start spinning!)

Interstellar (it's not impossible, it's necessary)
