(Possibly) Simple control idea

Post by Doubi » Fri Feb 01, 2008 5:18 pm

As far as I can make out, only the left hand Crtl-key is used for attacking, correct?

So perhaps the right hand Ctrl-key could be an Item Shortcut key. The player would choose which item to assign.

The situation I'm thinking of it this: You're happily slashing away, and have just attacked a new creature when you realise your health is dangerously low. If you had an Item Shortcut key, you could quickly chug your bottle of potion or whatever and fight on without having to run far enough away to give you time to open the menu, click the item you want, click use, close menu.

If you wanted to be greedy, you could have different items assigned to some combinaton of right-Ctrl and the number keys.

Thoughts? How feasible is this?

The item shortcut bar which allows to bind items to the F-keys almost made it into 0.0.24 but got taken out in the last minute because of an user interface problem.

Really? What keys were going to be used for the menu shortcuts then?
And are there any plans to bring something like an item-shortcut back in?

It already works quite well in the 0.1 version (client for the new server). If we put it into 0.0.25 or not depends on if someone feels like programming a comfortable interface for assigning items to the key slots.
