If it is anything buy WASD or similar keyboard + mouse control, I will be severely disappointed. Click and move is archaic at best.

While they're at it, maybe they should make spaceships move with WASDQE too. Perpetuum did it, works quite well. (In before bitter vet flames)

Anyone who mentions WASD movement instead of ESDF knows absolutely nothing about gaming.

Smack your head against the keyboard. Works for me in PvP and PvE especially when you get your a55 handed to you :3 watch out for those nasty Spiders they'll come web you!

What's with all the wasd-ers in here?? Shocked I've been using WAXD from the beginning of time..duke nukem 3d even. Hope they make movement with point'n'click, since everything else in eve works that way, and there's no real use for key controls..

I heard that if you use a gamepad you can wiggle your ears with the analogue sticks. The buttons can be used for pre-programmed facial expressions you can set in the character editor.

PointClick to move to the clicked place is a HORRIBLE way to move in a game.
They use it in GuildWars and I find it so annoying. Thankfully ther is WSAD too.

I hope it's mouse driven, not WASD. Pre-NGE Star Wars Galaxies had the best such interface, right click drove your movement, it was very comfortable to use.

PS: Post-NGE SWG's UI should be outlawed by the Geneva Convention as illegal torture, don't imitate any of THAT...

From a design standpoint, it would make sense to default to point and click for ambulation movement. That is how movement is handled in the main (spaceship) portion of the game. New players already half the time don't read the starting tutorials and start mashing the WASD keys. Allowing them to use WASD when they start the game in Captain's Quarters would only confuse them more.

Ideally there should be options for both types of controls, depending on player preference.

I've played games that rely on both control schemes, and their usability almost always comes down to how well the controls and the environment are designed. Point and click requires good automatic pathfinding, good camera controls, and environments that do not have a lot of clutter. It seems to work best in third-person view, which is what I believe Incarna will involve. When implemented properly, point and click controls can allow for more natural animations and walking patterns, can prevent bumping since it's much more difficult to play avatar bumper carts using point and click, and can provide additional functionality. For example: Right Click > Approach Character, or Right-Click > Follow Character, or, clicking on a vending machine: Right Click > Get Drunk. At its worst, however, it can make a game unplayable.

WASD and other similar keyboard-based movement schemes can work equally well, and tend to be more difficult to botch, although anything is possible, of course. They are more familiar to most players, and allow for finer control of movement, although I doubt fine movement control will be required in what is probably going to be an animated chat and game room.

Haven't find the answer to this question & start to feel real dumb, but, how will be controlled the avatar at Captain's Quarters and Incarna? Will it be WASD controls or point and click? Or both?


And this is why, six months from now, we'll be reading threads in this very forum about how CCP promised us WASD, point & click, OCZ NIA and qwerty based control over our characters with bendable limbs into any pose, a coffee machine in the Captain's Quarters and the ability to link the music played to your iCrap.

However, I will admit to feeling a certain admiration for the type of person that has "How will unreleased, undated feature be controlled" so high on their priority list that they'd create a new thread just about that.

Unhappily when hopping on your exotic dancer the same will happen as in "Lesure Suit Larry" ages ago, you will blackscreen for 10 sec, animation coming back with a smile on your face.

Teen rating, you can't be drunk teens might learn how to be drunk after all !
Why won't anyone think of the children. ugh

To topic I hope they have mouse click + arrows with numpad for moving camera around you (no automatic camera turning with you) and use mouse only for menus and selecting actions.
That would teach you mouse look + WASD pampered kids, how real men played their MMO's. Laughing

But of course, you can set orbit distance and orbit people, approach or keep distance (distance also adjustable)

There's a much more important question:
Will there be jumping? Or crouching?

Also, will corpses look like Incarna characters?
So your actual character gets jettisoned from your exploding pod.. and you see it struggling and twitching in vain as it dies?

It would be H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S.


Sorry to be the bearer of bad news (and lolrp lore) but the cloning technology flash fries your brain the instant the pod breaches, your death is quick and what i can only assume mostly painless.

back on topic, 8426 would be standard controls however i've always been a fan of the solitude the arrow keys have on my keyboard.
