1  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / General UQM Discussion / RFC: melee tweak on: May 12, 2012, 10:01:45 pm
I am generally opposed to making any gameplay related changes to UQM, but there is one exception I've been thinking about for a long time, and I'd like to know what everyone else thinks:

I'd like to suggest adding a minimum radius restriction for warping in a new ship during Super Melee. The reason I want this, is that it is possible for the "new" ship to utterly slaughter the victor of the previous battle, if it warps into an advantageous spot. A Vux ship warping into close range directly behind, for example, a Mycon ship, can slaughter it before it can even turn far enough to get off a single shot.

So what does everyone else think? Is this a reasonable idea? Is it too intrusive? Is the phenomenon of unwinnable battles a good or a bad thing in the context of UQM/Super Melee?

Why in the world was the control config file schema re-done yet again?
In order to use the same format and code that the RMP files use.

And much more important, why in god's name did you guys remove the configurable menu controls?
The menu controls were never configurable online. To change them see the post above. The menu controls are not part of online config so that you could not get your controls to an unusable state. Granted, some menu controls should be made configurable, like the search, next, zoom-in and zoom-out keys, and maybe others. We'll get right on that  Tongue

I had ESDF/Space/Shift set to menu movement/select/cancel and now I can't do that.
Yes, you can. See post above.

Also, you did notice "0" being the first digit in the version number, right?

I know they were never configurable through the menus; I couldn't figure out how to do it by editing the config file manually, though. If the RMP format is documented (and allows for manual configuration of menu up/down/select/etc) then I'll stop being a *sad animal*.

Suggestion: allow on-line configuration of all controls (including menu selection, etc) but include a "panic button" (Ctrl+F11, e.g.; whatever you think works best) which would revert the "mandatory" controls to some safe default.
