Sky Boxing Day

Sky Boxing Day

Yet another part of Game development... the outer world!

To have our Space station float in well... the sky, we had to design a starfield with planets (such as Earth) and build a box from them.

Sky box with space-like starfields

Next is to 'fold' this box around our Space station in the Game engine (called Ogre). So we can have a look out of the station's windows and see Earth.

And on a romatic evening at the Space station SPACEPORT, its inhabitants might be singing...

"I'm wishing on a star to follow where you are
I'm wishing on a dream to follow what it means
And I wish on all the rainbows that I see
I wish on all the people who really dream
And I'm wishing on tomorrow praying it will come
And I'm wishing on all the loving we've ever done"

- Lyrics by Rose Royce
