CUSTOMIZED KEY BINDINGS FOR SHIPS
I really enjoy playing ships but to make it easier and more intuitive I customized the key bindings. Attached is a graphic describing customized key bindings (just a photo of my keyboard edited with MS Paint). The text is pretty small so it may be hard to read, and since it is colour-coded it may be hard to read for the colour blind. If requested I can make a better and easier to read graphic.Notes:
-These key bindings are specifically customized for ships so I removed key bindings for things like exposure, loader mode etc.
-The turn up and down controls are inverted (like flying a plane) so to rotate up, press down arrow; and to rotate down, press up arrow.-This particular layout requires a numpad and NumLock has to be turned ON-If you are using a laptop I
recommend disabling the
track-pad (only if you're using a mouse) to avoid accidentally selecting objects while flyingHopefully some of you may be inspired to use this layout, a modified version or customize your own. I will add that it took a lot of trial and error (many hours of nerding out!) to get the bindings to work well and practically, and I
occasionally continue to make improvements. If anyone has already customized their key bindings for ships or does in response to this post, feel free to share them and any feedback and suggestions
