E, NUM9 ------- rotate clockwise
NUM8 ---------- turn up
NUM2 ---------- turn down
NUM4 ---------- turn left
NUM6 ---------- turn right
NUM5, X ------- stop rotation
Z ------------- synchronize velocity with the velocity of the nearest planet
+ ------------- increase thrust
- ------------- decrease thrust
Ctrl + -------- increase thrust to nearest standard value
Ctrl - -------- decrease thrust to nearest standard value
Wheel --------- change thrust or hyperacceleration factor
Ctrl Wheel ---- change thrust [to nearest standard value - I forgot type this]
Shift Wheel ---- zoom the camera from the ship
O ------------------ toggle view of spacecraft's trajectory and planets orbits

Yes, everyone please always read the readme file, there is important information in there. That's why it's called "readme".

W, Up --------- accelerate forward
S, Down ------- accelerate back
A, Left ------- accelerate left
D, Right ------ accelerate right
W, Up --------- accelerate forward
S, Down ------- accelerate back
A, Left ------- accelerate left
D, Right ------ accelerate right

NUM8 ---------- turn up

numpad does not turn my ship does the same thing WASD keys do.............Can you actually turn the ship or just accelerate in that direction?

Spacejockey, did you try to set up you own preference for keys in setting/controls?

I found binding the rotation controls to the arrow keys makes for a handy control system, allowing easy rotation in all directions.




I occasionally stream at http://www.twitch.tv/magistermystax. Sometimes SE, sometimes other games.

Num Lock should be turned on.

How does the hyperdrive work? I know you can turn it on with I and the mousewheel makes you move faster, but what xactly is the Hyperdrive factor? I thought it would be how many times faster than c you go, but c doesn't seem to be until you reach like hyperfactor 10000.

It seems to me that it works by increasing the time, but just for the ship. So when you increase time your ship will go faster, but so will the planets. But hyperfactor just increases time for your ship and the planets stay at there normal speeds.

I also didn't understand how the hyperdrive work… For what I understand, it's increase only ship motion, but in my game I didn't see that effect.

If I take control of one ship, accelerate to one direction, and engage hyper drive, the ship go to another direction....
I missed something ?

How do you deselect a ship once you have selected it and placed it where you want ?

For instance, I set up a nice image for a still, I want to add a ship, drive it to where I want it then switch back to the planet to take the shot. But I cant seem to find any key to un-select a ship once it is selected.

Much appreciated.

EDIT: Never mind I found it, I simply select free mode (1) again. Dho !!

I guess Kerbal Space Program has spoiled me, but there is a real need for an orbital display for your ship. I have no idea how I'm going to get into a stable orbit right now.
EDIT: Well, I managed to trial and error it. It involved "crashing" into the planet. Anyway, my point still stands.
