Hi Monty & list
May i suggest a little change to exploration key assigments:
- Each number key 1-9 will tell what point is nearest in given direction.
- Shift + key 1-9 will move to given direction.
- Shift + 5 will return to previous point.
- Joysstick works same way as in navigation mode, ie up tells if there
are points in same direction as previous movement, down tells previous
point and so on.
- Another possibility is to make two exploration modes, one based on
cardinal directions and other based on relative travel direction. In
latter case number 2 tells what is front of user, shift 2 moves there, 3
tells nearest point front-rigth, shift 3 turns travel direction 45
degrees clockwise and moves to nearest point and so on. Number 5 could
tell current virtual heading and shift-5 (and shift-8 of course) will
move back to previous point.
btw: i'll would be interested to translate program and documentation in
finnish as soon i become more familiar with software.
