  • I've got a question, how do you position your camera? Sunrise always had some form of control over the camera's position, so I'm wondering. Do you just spectate the ship itself, or do you get in, and spectate an outside entity that's always in one position relative to the ship, either behind it or freelooking, and the mouse wheel (MW_DOWN and UP I think...maybe something else) controls it's positioning? I must know!

If you want to move the ship in the direction you are pointing, hold right click. Its a simple and comfortable system.

  • Think a space station somewhere in the background in between the 2 planets would be nice or a ship or something.

The ones on the pictures are just for show off. There will be other types of drones such as mining drones and satelites for planet communication. Mining drones can be set to mine asteroids and drop them into a mining deposit, which is a placeable mining station that you can setup at any asteroid field. This means that you wont have to be around to mine. However when the mining deposit runs out of space, the drone will just dock and wait for you to return. Anways I have been working on the targetting system and ship modules for abit. Picture should come up soon.
