While hunting for a free space sandbox I ran into this gem:
However, the Oolite community really loves this game and I was determined to find out why.
That keyboard control problem.
That mouse control problem
This one was tricky.
Norby offers a solution:
“VIEW_AFT” to “VIEW_FORWARD” in Scriptsreversecontrol.js
That’s right. Modify an addon.
In my case “Reverse Y Controls” addon was modified. But that ended up conflicting with “Addons for beginners” which depends on “Reverse Control”.
Quick solution. Make “Reverse Y” identify itself as “Reverse” and fool “Addons for beginners” into respecting the changes. Addon results
Fun at last
End result. Pretty decent space sim sandbox for free with custom controls. Well worth the time spent modding.
