Key Bindings in a Printable Spreadsheet and PDF

12 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I was checking the KSP wiki and noticed the key bindings are long ago outdated and no longer available from Dropbox. I'm sure that most are still applicable but I'd rather have a sheet of paper to read off of instead of windowing the game to keep the wiki open in a browser or printing the whole browser page from the wiki.

Long story short I made a spreadsheet of them formatted in an .ods file with LibreOffice Calc and also exported one in .xlsx though I'm not sure how the .xlsx file will look for you. I'm on Linux without a Microsoft product anywhere. The key binding were taken directly from the game v. 1.2.2.1622.

Hope they are of use to someone.

*** EDIT ***

New single page key binding files:

I added a PDF for folks to use if that's more convenient.

I'm sure the old hands at the game don't need them anymore but if someone wanted to add these to the wiki to help people new to the game, that would be great.

You might want to mention also...

Under 'Rotation'; Alt+{key} is trim. Alt+X releases all trim.

Under 'EVA'; Space orients the Kerbal to the direction of view.

Yeah, forgot to mention in the OP that if I made any mistakes or missed something to point it out. So thanks for the updates guys. Like I said, I took everything from the in game Input-Setting screen. Surprised the things you all are pointing out are not in there.

I'll write notes on my printed copy and update it in the near future. Hopefully I can get everything spaced out properly so it looks good on paper.

@Red Shirt Does C = Toggle IVA  go in Flight Controls-Other?

The EVA edit presents no problems but the Rotation edit with make the Game-General overrun to the second page unless I squeeze the fonts or line spacing smaller. Guess I'm obsessive about things like that. :D

I'll work on it. Just need to get some game time under my belt. :wink:

I sure don't by any means want to discourage you from documenting the key bindings. Writing these down yourself is probably the best way to learn and retain. However, you might want to have a look at this (I think it is still all up to date):

Too late. If I knew that was floating around on the web... :o

Thanks for the link.

I reworked and updated the .ods .xlsx and .pdf files to a single page print out. I'll edit the first post with these files as well as including them here.

If there are any mistakes please let me know. Thanks

@Ed Jaws there's also this one:

It hasn't been updated in a while, but it's still pretty accurate. The only thing I know of that's different now is the default key for 'reset focus' is no longer backspace. It was moved to back quote (the ~ to the left of the 1 key).

@FullMetalMachinist Thanks man and all those that liked the effort.

It took a while to get everything on a single page and grouped somewhat coherently.

Yes I found the backquote when I first started playing KSP. Never before knew or even thought about that key, ever.  I believe I got it covered under the System/UI column about the 10th one down.

@TriggerAu certainly got it right about old school gaming. I remember the old Microprose games that came with cardboard cutouts like he did that you'd place over the keyboard with all the controls labeled for their flight sims.

Longbow was my inspiration for it :)
