The actual ship control mechanism is combined to the aiming/targeting pointer,wich is quite unconfortable sometimes…I suggest adding two changes to the game control.
1-The aiming pointer is moving away from the center of the screen,even if in the centre of the screen is a static “thing”…it would be much easier to aim and control the ship(or at least aiming)if the aiming pointer would be static,in the center of the screen,as the other thing…I say that because before StarConflict,I was playing shooters,and I’m still playing now,and if there are other guys that played them,at least CounterStrike,I think everybody played it,you know that the aiming pointer is in the middle of the screen,with a good reason,it’s much easier to aim that way.And also,as a balancing tool,you can withdraw the A1M1 autoaimer,or how is it named…
2-If the first change is implemented,it would be helpfull to make another way to control the ship,without the need of a mouse.The aiming will be done eith the mouse,and the ship will be handled with the keyboard,through WASD,and also for the controls that were already disposed to those keys,the can very easy be moved to other keys.
Of course,this changes souhld be added as an alternative to the already existing controls,every player will choose it’s favorite control combination.
Hope you will all like this idea,and think that this will help the gameplay.
