Hey guys, I just picked up a Steam Controller during the Steam Holiday Sale, and I was wondering if anyone has used a Steam Controller for Star Citizen?  

I'll probably want to stick with my HOTAS for Arena Commander (maybe?) but I was wondering if a gamepad-style controller (and the Steam Controller in particular) might work better during the first-person sections of Star Citizen (FPS combat, and simply running around planet/station-side before you get in your ship & fly off).  Since I've never done dual-controllers before, is it hard to switch between a gamepad and HOTAS?   Can you run both controller schemes simultaneously?

You can most definitely run both at the same time, switching is as simple as picking up the gamepad/HOTAS and putting the other one down. As for whether its better vs (I'm assuming) KB/Mouse, is down to skill with both and personal preference. In my opinion using a mouse is far superior to any other input device for FPS hands down. As for simply running around (no combat involved), a game pad would be easier I suppose... you could essentially play one handed.

 

At the end of the day go with whatever works best for you!

Edit: I just realised the post is super old D=

      Four years ago the great Chris Roberts helped promote the Kickstarter campaign for Everspace 1 which ultimately helped in funding, but was also a beautiful moment seeing the community come together to help push out another space game. And gotta say as a result it has let me experience one of my personal favourite space rogue-likes of all time along with FTL.
      Now four years later and we have a direct sequel but this time with a bigger focus on adding more depth to the story and changing the gameplay from a rogue-like to an open-world. The Kickstarter is out and has reached 60% with 12 days to go. But we need the amazing community to once again come together and help support the development and make it the best it can be. Lets make Chris proud! Even if you can’t pledge, simply spreading the word is more than enough. I hope you all have a great day and may we continue to get more awesome space games!

      We’re returning from our hiatus with a brief announcement for this months Game Day, which will be held this next Saturday, December 15th! With the recent explosion of content in the form of patch 3.3, and even more patches in the near future providing exponentially more places and events to explore, we wanted to provide some assistance to those that were looking to enjoy the new additions to the game, but wished to do so with some friends and org-mates.
      Joining Game Day
      In pursuit of that goal, as mentioned above, this next Saturday will be the next Game Day, held from 1600 UTC to 0400 UTC. If you are interested in playing Star Citizen with other members of the community, join us on TeamSpeak in the Game Day channel section! If you’re looking to do something specific, such as explore the PU, shoot one another in Battle Royale, or get some flight hours in Arena Commander, follow these steps:
      Create a sub-channel in the relevant parent channel of the Game Day section of TS
      Include LFM, or LFG in the title of your sub-channel
      In the channels description provide an idea of what you’re looking to do
      Alternatively, you’re welcome to hang out and chat in the Landing Channel should you desire a break from the game!
      Some minor changes from the format of our last Game Days will be effective for this month. We’re going to omit having hosts present for each hour of the event, opting instead for staff to enjoy the game alongside all of you. We’re looking forward exploring the new content with everyone!
      With that, we hope to see some of you next weekend, and we wish all of you safe travels and happy holidays! We’ll be back next year with more events in store, so we hope to see you then!

      Who runs the IMP group on Steam? Had a request in just because it shows a handful of people in chat but still pending. Here's the link.   https://steamcommunity.com/groups/imperiumfleet

      Hello Once More @Imperium Members!
      This month we’ll be continuing the format from last time! In case you missed it, here is the explanation of the changes and some new information related to how Game Days will operate in the near future:
      We wanted to improve the experience of Game Day overall and felt that with Star Citizen in its current state just doesn’t warrant the amount of effort that we had once been able to put into it. IE. Custom Scenarios, Hype Trailers, Streaming, Competitions. Eventually that will change again and we can get back to the game that we are so anxiously awaiting. Until that time we would like to keep Game Day’s focus as a team building event that gives us a regular time each month that we can set aside to play games as an org. 
      You’ll notice at the top of this post there is a poll with several games as options. If you plan on taking part in this Game Day, please vote for your favorite choice from this list, and those that play in the chosen game will be added into a raffle! The poll will close on this next Friday, the 25th of May.
      You’ll still be free to join in with anyone else that would be playing Star Citizen, so don’t worry if you don’t have any of the games in the list.
      If you would like to suggest game to play together as an org on future Game Day’s please leave us suggestions in this thread and we will add them to the poll for the next event.
      We’ll also be shortening the duration of Game Day for this month. Instead of 1600 UTC through 0400 UTC, we’ll be starting at 1800 UTC and run to 0400 UTC.
      Joining Game Day
      For those of you that want to make a return visit, or show up for the first time, you only need to enter the Landing Channel on Teamspeak (ts.starcitizenbase.com), and one of our Hosts will direct you to the action!
      Raffles
      As for most other Game Day’s, we will be providing raffles for participants that play games in Star Citizen. However, this month we will be only conducting a participation raffle, so if you join any Star Citizen games created by other Imperium members, you’ll be entered into the raffle!
      As mentioned above, we will also be conducting a participation raffle for the winning game from the poll. Said game will have several TS channels created for players to meet up and play together, and doing so will enter you into this second raffle as well!
      Since we are hosting two games at once, be sure to check in with an officer or specialist that your name was added to the raffle of the game you played in! (As much as we may pretend otherwise, our Game Day hosts are still human, and you wouldn’t want to miss out on your chance to win free stuff)
      The prizes for both raffles will be $10 Star Citizen gift cards, and the winners of the raffles will be PM’d in the following week to confirm their prizes.
