Throttle/Cruise Control

Auhrii shared this feedback 2 years ago

A feature that was floated in one of Xocliw's streams a while back (and it was years ago now) was cruise control, or the ability to bind forward/back throttle to a continuous, set-and-forget axis, similar to how Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen handle it. You hold the forward and backward thruster keys to increase and decrease the throttle, respectively, and your ship would try to hold that speed if the dampers are enabled (if they're disabled, thrusters act normally and only respond to direct inputs).

This would make planetary flight and escape easier, as you wouldn't have to worry about unnecessary correction burns. Whilst you can currently bind thruster overrides to the hotbar, they control acceleration, not top speed.
