View Full Version : Suggestion: "Thrusters ON/OFF toggle" key

I hope a "Thrusters ON/OFF toggle" key added. When that key is pressed the ship starts moving forward, and the key is pressed again the ship stops.

I found myself holding "Trusters On" key 95% of the time, and such a toggle key will let me use my finger for other things. (I steer with the mouse, but use "Trusters On" key to proceed instead of holding LMB, which frees up the mouse pointer more of the time.)

The "Thrusters OFF" key seems meaningless because when you release "Thrusters ON" key the ship naturally stops. It may be replaced with the toggle key, if there is no room for a new key.

There are options for this in the settings under UI Options:

Thrusters toggle: on
Thruster disengage: off
Thruster cursor: off (if you want to just steer normally with A and D)
Allow basic mouse move: off

The "Thrusters on" key (W by default) will then act as an on/off toggle.

Thank you for the reply. I'm grad it has already implemented. :)
