Just a thought. I´ve always found the control system of ares to be really restricting.
If a new game were meant to be created how does this sound.
I´m not sure this is the place to post it, but i´ll post it anyway.
How does this sound.
Requires a 2 button mouse, but still.
Mouse Button 1 - Select
Mouse Button 2 - Move/attack - if no mouse button 2 (**** i might have to rethink this)
Ctrl combined with number key - Create group on number key
Tab - change ship to currently selected. If group to highest ranked ship.
W - Ship accelerate
S - Ship deaccelerate
A - Ship turn left
D - Ship turn right
Space - Fire weapon 1
Cmd - Fire weapon 2
Option - Hyperspace
Q - Zoom in
E - Zoom out
Shift mouse 2 click - Waypoint
F mouse 2 click - attack area
F Shift mouse 2 click - Waypoint attack
Jump is desided by distance of movement. Use shift to control.
This is not an i will make a new game promise, it´s just something i find interesting, and would like to look into.
The above is very starcraft/FPS inspired.
all critisism welcome
