Space Docking Sim 2014by YM - Compo Entry
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)
All these controls are with respect to the forwards view from your cockpit
W/S - Pitch Down/Up
A/D - Yaw Left/Right
Q/E - Roll Left/Right
I/K - Thrust Forwards/Backwards
J/L - Thrust Left/Right
Y/H - Thrust Up/Down
Left Shift (hold) - Use Main Engines
Space - Look Through Window
R - Reset Current Difficulty
T - Cycle Difficulty
(The standalone version likes to pop into fullscreen randomly, just press R and it should window again)

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
