Default Orbiter Station Shipyard alpha release
by Artlav 06-29-2009, 10:21 PM

Procedural generation station designer for Orbiter and beyond.
Station Shipyard


Create space stations by click and roll.

Look into Doc/Orbiter_Shipyard/Station_Shipyard for the manual, or visit http://orbides.1gb.ru/shipgen-manual.php for online version.

This is a work in progress, so many things may be weird.
Feedback is welcome, if you care about it's improvements of course.

The amount of actual content is rather limited so far, thus it's more about the ideas and interface of the program.

You can attach them to link type 1 (edges of trusses, panels, adaptor's small end) with the sidewards links (choose link in preview window).

It is supposed to be explicitly mentioned in slide 3 of the manual.
What does it read like instead?

the manual's fine it's just that I only had a quick look at it the 1st time, also any chance of us getting a propulsion module ?
EDIT: I think I found a bug http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/212...lespaceing.png there is large spacing between the modules

Certainly, although i don't know what it will look like yet.
Now the interface is being more or less shaped up, i'll be returning to the original idea - making a procedural variety of station modules.

Yes, small module uses large one's link points... To be fixed.

Update 090701:
Station Shipyard 090701



Some notes:
Used link is changed in the preview window, by clicking on the needed link.
You need OpenGL 2.0 capable GPU for it to run properly (post-2004 video card, not Intel GMA)

Changes:
090630-090701:
-Fixed small hab
-Fixed starting node deletion bugs
-Restricted linked node deletion
-Allowed adding blocks if all are deleted
-Allowed changing root node with R key in Chg mode to selected block
-Added some new modules, changed some bad textures
-Added Habitable DG dock

As is said in the description, Intel chipsets are not yet supported.
So, either upgrade, or wait for the newer version of the shipyard.

The secondary screen has a critical feature linked into it, yet doesn't work on all GPU's. That will be fixed soon.
