# 1 All Stop and Reverse commands?
02-03-2010, 05:19 PM
Has anyone found a command to bind a key to Stop and Reverse?

I HATE having to use the mouse to click commands to my ship / character / crew. Frankly, in the heat of the moment, I cant ever find my mouse cursor, and click on the command in time!

I know you can bind a key to toggle Full Impulse, and there is a key (which I dont want to use) to toggle between full speed and stop (dont want to toggle). I really want to bind keys to make my ship Stop, and enter Reverse.

I looked through all the / commands, but couldnt find one.

Any ideas?

Wow, so very helpful.

You are a prince among men. Or maybe among frogs...

Care to elaborate, mister wizard?

R toggles full throttle and all stop. Shift R toggles full impulse. Hitting Q while stopped goes into reverse. Easy peasy.

For Stopping:
/bind <whatever> throttle_stop

For Reverse*:
/bind <whatever> throttleadjust -1

* have to hit twice if you are actually moving

Wonder if you could use && to combine those into 1 command:
ie.
/bind <Key> throttle_stop&&throttleadjust -1
will have to check that.

Unfortunately it says Unknown Command "throttle_stop". Valid is only throttleadjust, for stoping my ship from any speed I did used:

/bind <key> throttleadjust -6

Thing with && doesn't work is not possible to do more than one action per bind. Bind clearly says about syntax:

/bind <string> <string>

Ya sorry my bad. For stopping use:

/bind <whatever> throttleadjust -1

This command actually reads "decrease throttle by -100%" so it will stop your ship at whatever speed you are currently cruising at. If you press it while stopped you will reverse. The throttle commands work on a percentage base. So if you use:

/bind <whatever> throttleadjust -.33

Your throttle speed will decrease by 33% of the total throttle bar (So if you press it 3 times from full throttle you will stop as well)

This time my info is not off
You can find this elsewhere though. So do a bit of searching to find more binds.

thanks guys (and gals?)

that is exactly what I needed. I want to bind a key to just stop regardless of what speed I am going!
