Is there any way to coax the engine into forcing a ship to take a certain docking port? I had the idea for a shipyard with large docking bays for handling big ships (antares, Aquila, Scarab, Mikeno, etc), and smaller bays built into the outside of those area for the smaller ships, like wolfens and Hammerheads. But it'll look pretty silly if the hammerhead takes the vast docking bay with a whole bunch of loading and serviving gantries, and the Scarab or Mikeno takes a tiny little airlock by the defense turret on the outside of the bay.
I'll make a crude little diagram here, hopefully the spacing won't get removed when it posts....
Code: Select all
Docking bays indicated by: x
Bays on arms are on the OUTSIDE of the arm, bays on the round bit in the middle are basically signifying the entire inside of the main docks.
Main Dock x|######|x Main Dock
As you can see (Use your imagination!), the station has 4 large bays, with gantries/arms/whatevers on each side of the bay. On the outside of each large dock are 3 docking ports for smaller craft.....a Mike will fit very nice and snugly into one of the big bays, but really WON'T fit on the side-bays. I don't *think* there's anything I can try toforce it to go form the right one....but has anyone else got any possible way I might be wrong?
(I'm fine if it's not possible, I'm still on concept work rather than actively adding it. Also, ASCII diagrams are sucky to make.)
