The key setup is quite elegant and it plays well from a laptop but there are a few things missing... copy and paste: when your chatting its nice to be able to go to a url or copy a macro... triggers: it needs a trigger system so you can idle and get a "bing" when a regexp comes through... command history: ctrl-p is used to access previous commands but imo it should be the up and down arrows and the last command should stay on the command line highlighted/selected so you can repeat the command by pressing enter... speed graphic: there is a line that grows out of your vehicle representing your speed. it should end at the point you will pull up if you set the throttle to zero... throttle: there should be keys to control your throttle, i suggest: ctrl+ : run. ctrlshift+ : walk. ctrl- : stop. ctrlshift- : back. relock: there should be a key that locks the last target you had locked... jump: i think the mouse pointer should be used to select a hex to jump to... heading: if you use the mouse to jump why not the other button for heading?... layout: i cant find a menu item to save the size and position of the windows, it seems to do this at random intervals... I want to see it loading through a web page, let me onto the project its a good piece of software.
