Could someone make a page that would tell me what button to get onto a planet?

This wiki really needs a list of controls.

If I understand your question correctly, there is no specific "button" you press to land on a planet. You choose "SCAN" from the list and then "DISPATCH" (which is auto-selected after you do an AutoScan). Since the controls can be changed through the keys.cfg file, writing out specific controls would be difficult, but if we specify that we are refering only to the default settings, this is how it works:

  • the LEFT or UP arrow keys will move up in menu selection.
  • the RIGHT or DOWN arrow keys will move down in menu selection.
  • the RIGHT CTRL or ENTER keys will choose the currently highlighted menu selection.
  • the RIGHT SHIFT or SPACE keys will back out of the current menu to the previous one.

These are the only buttons you will need to play the entire game (other than the ESC key, for emergency warp escape in combat, and + (PLUS) and - (MINUS) on the number pad only which are useful for zooming in and out on the STARMAP). There are other buttons that can be used in battle to fire your primary and secondary weapons, like [ and ], but the above controls will do this as well, whereas [ and ] do not control the menu navigation.

Perhaps these controls can be expanded (there are some more) and posted somewhere in the wiki. (One last thing: The keys.cfg file is a simple text file, so you can read about the game controls there.)

Also note you can't land on slave-shielded planets or gas-giants. -- 21:11, 6 Jul 2005 (CEST)

Such a mysterious title ("Read only if you have a green background") is a downright ANTI-spoiler!!! (it raises the enjoyment) 19:46, 18 March 2007 (CET)

I've removed the "green background" stuff again. Articles are supposed to be give answers, not raise questions. People should not have to click on links to make sense out some text. — SvdB 03:08, 20 March 2007 (CET)
