PotBS: Interview with David Hunt

Posted Tue, Apr 03, 2007 by LadySirse

Interview with David 'Taelorn' Hunt has posted an interview today that covers ship combat in the upcoming Pirates of the Burning Sea. Tell us about how a pirate can sail his ship around the Burning Sea? What type of interface did you use for players to sail around the game?

David 'Taelorn' Hunt: We use a standard WASD setup, although I keep telling everyone that ESDF is superior! One major difference here is that you do not need to hold forward to keep moving - you just hit it long enough to raise your sails to the desired position. Players who prefer to use the mouse can click to adjust their sails and rudder or set a heading on the compass. I prefer to use the keyboard to control my movement and the mouse to control the camera, but I occasionally maneuver with the mouse.
