Is there currently a way or would it be possable to get a hotkey for these features I know there is a button for them so hot key should't be to much of a deal.

when in middle of big dogfight time is everything don't have time to worrie about mouse clicking as I am busy flying the ship

putting everything auto fire isn't as effective

go all beams till shield is down then I want to fire my high yeild torp With them on auto fire the timeing gets off as they will fire just before I am rdy for them then have to wait for cd to get the high yeild off.

a manual control hotkey would be great.

Second thing would like to see is weapon groups so i can say on my cruiser put 3 beams in one group 3 in another and torp in last. which leads into the next idea.

primary and secondary targets.

many times on the shows you see the enterprise and other ships fireing on multiple targets at once.

haveing the ablity to fire on more then one target at a time would be great esp when dealing with fighers and smaller craft.

Step 1: Put your torpedo weapon somewhere on your hotbar

Step 2: Remap that specific hotkey to a side button on your mouse

Step 3: Profit


As for multi-targeting, invest in FAW, CSV or TS abilities.

You can set whatever binds you want for fire ~torps and whatever already. Go into space and then Options -> Key Binds -> Space -> Space Key Binds

The game doesnt support weapon groups. It doesnt respond correctly if you try to fake it by manually firing one weapon then pressing your fire phasers key. Or at least it didnt work for me last time I tried it. Maybe you can make it work.

Fire-at-Will and releated "spreads" are the only way to target multiple enemies simultaneously

Eh you can map "Fire All Beams" and "Fire all Torpedos"...

As far as I am aware [Space] is "Fire All" by Standard... for example I have "Fire All Beams" on [Space] and "Fire All Torpedos" of [Shift].

1 there is a fire all weapon key bind that you can map everywhere on the keyboard
2. Not sure what is being asked but I think it's the ability to fire only fore or o ly aft, in which case there isn't something for that
3. Bram fire at will is the closest we'll ever get
Chive on and prosper, eh?
