Elite: Dangerous Alpha 3.0 Released

Frontier Developments has released the Elite: Dangerous Alpha 3.0 for all backers and purchasers of Elite: Dangerous, the latest prerelease installment in the upcoming space combat remake. As demonstrated in a new tutorial video, this adds docking to the game. Here's word: "After successfully proving out the moment to moment combat gameplay, and multiplayer technology in Alpha phases one and two respectively, phase three starts to move towards building out the game by adding docking, an early version of hyperspace jumps between multiple locations and ship outfitting within an iconic Coriolis space station. Once successfully docked in the station a notoriously difficult skill to master in the original Elite Elite: Dangerous Alpha phase three offers progression where players can use their honest profit or ill-gotten gains from their in-game actions to improve their ship."

Pretty impressive that they seem to have the illusion of physics working. Looks cool how you have to align your ship as a station rotates, and when you are inside of it you are then affected by its artificial gravity as it rotates.

I had to cringe in that video below, watching that person had no idea how to use a joystick in a 3D plane. I suppose that's what it looks like when I play certain console games, since I suck with console controllers.
