  • Which control system will you be using?

    I'm curious to see how everyone is planning on flying out in the 'verse.

    Personally, I'm thinking I'll be a keyboard and mouse person. I've got a flight stick and I'll give it a try, but I find in 6DOF space games I prefer the mouse over the joystick for comparatively more linear atmospheric flight games.

    Planning to hook up the TrackIR once it's implemented. (or hack it in before it has support, like I did with World of Warplanes)

    I'll be trying a HOTAS setup. I had thought about adding the oculus rift at some point as well. There is a good chance that I will revert back to mouse and keyboard. I've used joysticks in previous space games and liked the feel. Time will tell though.

      I put that I am using a controller (Logitech F710), but my dream would be to play this and the new Elite game with Oculus VR and the Saitek X52 Pro!

        I want a Logitech G940... too bad they go for at least $550.

          Yeah I will start out with keyboard + mouse, but may move into something more dedicated as time goes on and we see how the flight controls shake out.

          Remember, it looks like the mouse will be aiming a turret at a separate point than "fixed and right in front of you" (well, on the Hornet at least), so I may need to change to a joystick + mouse sooner rather than later. But then again, I think my Aurora has fixed gun mounts. So we will see...

            It will be interesting to see how the controls work out. It has been stated that they will all be equal for quality of control, it will be down to personal preference. I like the idea behind this because it will really come down to skill as to who will be winning battles, not who has the better flight control system.

              Currently I'm waiting for my summer job to kick in before I get a joystick (or else I might just wait until the star citizen HOTAS they've got planned on release) but I'll give an xbox controller a try and try out mouse and keyboard as well.

              also me and a friend are considering making a gaming chair with an MFD :)

                Keyboard and mouse. Can't do HOTAS and unless it's a driving game, K&B is pretty much the only way to go for me.

                  Well, now that I think about it, I will be using a stick, keyboard, and a mouse. I have a wired 360 controller that I may use on a larger ship if I am not trying to dog fight and just want to do basic flight...

                    I'll just leave this here.
