Add C as a hotkey for "Activate held object"

Postby Hikurac » Tue Jan 24, 2017 8:50 pm #247360

As a common codebase player who tried out Goon, the controls seemed wonky as hell at first. But if there's anything I immediately liked, it was that C was a much easier key to activate held objects than Z, in my opinion. Not saying to get rid of Z to activate objects, as that would just piss people off. But C is currently not binded, so why not just make it activate held objects as well.

Fuck no.

Aside from breaking copy pasta, i have c macro'd to resist. Fuck off with needing two keys to do the same action literally within an inch of each other.

Then it would just type z instead of c when talking or messaging.

No thanks.


The only reason I said leave Z was because it's a habit for people and they'd be mad if it was changed. C is easier to press though.

Ctrl-Y yes. No idea why though.
