Make "Control from Here" action groupable


Recommended Posts

Hi.

Hard to make a short phrase that tell what I (We) want here.

When combining things with several "Control from here" the game will more often than not select the wrong (At the moment) one.

Example a lander with a command chair. Jeb gets in and the game think it's a rover. I have to reselect the probe core....again.

Not hard to do but if I could have a magic-button set in the VAB-SPH I would like that. I imagine several user might like it too.

Sometime combining lander cans in every darn direction you end up with strange re-entry angle when selecting retrograde.

I have designed things where the desired probe core is clipped or in a service bay and clicking the part is dificult. Again annoying.

 

Thanks for reading.

 

Great game.

I agree. It doesn't happen often, but I have run into a few situations in which I needed to be able to quickly set "control from here" on a hard-to-reach part, and it would have saved me some headaches if I'd been able to set that to an action group.

Yes, yes, yes.

I am always careful due to errors in the past....But.

Having labels on the probe cores that says "This side up" and "This side forward" would be nice.

This, all of this, the arrows and everything - stat!

Yes please.  And clearer than on the Decouplers.  Am I the only one that has a hard time telling which direction those fuzzy arrows point?

No.

No, you are not.

My video card can't keep up so I have reduced it's work load. I can't tell it's an harrow at all any more.
