Suggestion "flight-arrow-key-factor" "flight-arrow-precision-always"

Post by gt52 » Fri Oct 21, 2016 11:40 am

I'm a keyboard player.

And, this may be an age thing, I need to play with the Ctrl-key held down while flying all the time because I can not accurately time the duration of the tapping on the keys i'd need to in order to ever hit anything. I fly using "flight-arrow-key-precision-factor=0.1".

"flight-arrow-key-factor" would affect the maximum angle realized by roll/pitch/yaw. Thats all it would have to do.

"flight-arrow-precision-always" would invert what happens when you aim. if true, Ctrl would always appear pressed unless you hold it.

My right thumb and left pinkie would thank you.

In full screen you can shift 'm' to use the mouse to steer. Don't know if this will help but I play that way. I can't even dock with the arrow keys. :)

Hey SR, nope, that key just takes me into the can of worms that is the missing full-screen preferences config. playing on an external/2nd monitor here. "flight-arrow-key-precision-factor=0.1" would fix your docking troubles for all but the stations that rotate the fastest. You know where that goes. <smile>
