Help - HOTAS Axis Mapping


 Share

Recommended Posts

I have a Thrustmaster T.16000M and I've followed this page / guide to get set up: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/50174/thread/thrustmaster-t-16000-fcs-hotas-fillable-pdf-form-c

In that tutorial there's an XML file that has the keybinds. I've made a few changes to suit my muscle memory (long-time Elite: Dangerous player). Everything is great, except...

There are 2 changes I'd like to make but I don't know how to go about doing it. :D 

1st Change: I want to make it to where when I "twist" the stick left...the ship rotates in-place to the left. Twist to the right...ship rotates in-place to the right. (I believe this is the "RZ Axis".)

2nd Change: I want to make it to where when I move the Flight Stick to the left...the ship rolls to the left. Move the stick to the right...the ship rolls right. (I believe this is the "X Axis".)

Without this change I spend 10 minutes trying to land a ship and end up going back to the Mouse and Keyboard control scheme. Is there anyone knowledgeable that can help?

 

*EDIT*

I'm going to be changing my in-game name and my name on here. Until I do I'm rocking my "Recruit" signature banner. Once I've decided on a new name I'll request a regular signature banner. FWIW, in case anyone cares or was wondering. I misunderstood which "name" would be my visible name when I made my Star Citizen account.

Twist is indeed Z and left/right is X.

Let me get in game and I'll try to find you the exact place to change this.

And appreciate the heads up, I know it helps them with everyones info being up to date. =] Think you can update it on Portal as well when you do change it.

While in game follow this order.  

  1. Esc 
  2. Options 
  3. Keybinds 
  4. Image A - Select HOTAS in bottom right (1.) 
  5. Image A - Advanced Controls Customization in bottom left (2.) 
  6. Image B -  Flight - Movement 
  7. Image C - Roll

 

I'm unsure if you wanted X and Z to roll but if you mean X axis to look left and right that will be Yaw right above roll. If you do want both to Roll, sadly we cannot have multiple inputs for the same action yet. If you need anything else please feel free to ask!

      I have an A10 Warthog in good condition. It works with no problems. Seeking $310 plus shipping (around $20).

      THIS SET WAS SOLD AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE!
       
      Hey there guys
      As I recently purchased a pair of Virpil Constellation Alphas I realized I still have a unused set of CH gear that I won't be needing anymore. So if any of you are still looking for a set of CH gear at a nice discount let me know!
      CH may not look all fancy like other HOTAS out there but their sticks are industrial grade, built to last almost indefinitely, and practically indestructible. I bought them back in 2014 because of that while building my basic simpit with my dad but I've never actually used them yet (except for sitting in the chair at times and making pew-pew sounds).

      The original boxes are also still be available and my dad made longer (27cm) aluminium extender panels for the footrests back then to sit on top of the original shorter ones with adhesive tape because the original length of those pedals was rather short. 
      Regarding shipping, I'm from the Netherlands so this may be something to keep in mind regarding shipping costs+fees.
      As far I remember the set cost me around €475 at the time and they appear to be getting rather hard to find these days so I would like to get at least €300 +shipping for the set.
       
      Send me a PM if you're interested and I'm sure we can work something out!! Figured I'd let my org-mates be able to get them first instead of putting them up for sale on Ebay.

      Just saw this bad boy show up, its ambidextrous so would make for a great HOSAS item, too.

      I don't have any peripherals beyond a keyboard/mouse yet, so with the scroll wheel and analog stick on the stick it could work as a 1 unit solution. Has anyone tried a joystick and mouse for gimball aiming in SC?

      A friend tipped me off to VirPil.com, producer/sellers of some joysticks and throttle accessories -- the sticks are both for left and right handed use
      catalogue: https://virpil.com/en/shop
      https://virpil.com/en/blog/106-vpc-mongoost-50-throttle-off-to-production
      https://virpil.com/en/shop/grips/vpc-constellation-delta-vpc
      The sticks require a separate base to work, which VirPil also sells. They also have desk mounts, stick extensions, mounting plates and dust cover.
      Here's the thing - they are NOT cheap

      Hey all,
      So I've got a T.Flight Hotas X and I was curious if anyone else uses this setup that could give me an idea of their profile/keymapping? What other tools do you use for functionality in SC with your setup, if any?
      I feel like the stick itself is too stiff or too loose no matter what I do, and I feel like I have deadzones as well. Trying to figure out what I can do to fix that besides getting a new stick+throttle combo.
