    A nice space station docking scene can really make your game stand out from the crowd. Tech Demo 3 will help you achieve that by showing you how we would do it.


    Tech Demo 1 was a playable anti-gravity racing game demo which we released on PC and Xbox. You can read more about that here.

    Tech Demo 2 is / will be included with Sci-Fi Ship Controller version 1.2.0. We are also planning to release it as a standalone game on PC and Xbox. You can read more about it here.

    This tech demo will have the following elements:
    • Small shuttle (think Star Trek style)
    • A space station
    • AI-assisted docking manoeuvres
    • Player who can exit the shuttle and walk onto the space station
    If you’ve not done this before you might think that sounds all very simple and easy. However, if you want you ship (and space station) to obey some laws of physics, this is anything but simple. But more on that later!

    In the meantime, if you know of any great docking sequences you’ve seen, be sure to let us know.
