I’m writing to alert you of changes to our keyboard navigation that are currently in development. We’re making these changes to bring our navigation scheme more into alignment with industry standards.
Probably the most noticeable changes will be to the main navigation where we’re adding strafe left (Q) and strafe right (E) in addition to the existing turn left and right keys.
The main changes are outlined in the diagram below:
Additional changes in the works:
- SPRINT - Shift + Direction
- JUMP - Space
- FLY - Space (Press and hold)
- FLY DOWN - CTRL(Windows), Command(Mac)
- SCREENSHOT - Shift P
- FIRST PERSON - Shift F
- THIRD PERSON - Shift G
- FIRST PERSON / THIRD PERSON SCROLL - Mouse wheel
- MIRROR - Shift H
Finally, we are removing:
LOOK UP - Shift W
LOOK DOWN - Shift D
OPEN GOTO - Enter
In addition to these changes we’re providing a script in the marketplace that will restore legacy navigation controls.
We hope that these changes will provide for everyone who’s grown used to our current control scheme while easing the orientation of new visitors to the High Fidelity world.
Thanks for reading and looking forward to your feedback!
