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?



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!

      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
      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.

      It took some time to get my x52 pro working and relearning how to program it. As I was looking into star citizen there are a few command that I do not understand what it does or how/when to use it .
      STAR CITIZEN Tech Support - players helping players   MadWolfie@MadWolfie Discussion Control command and what does it do?
        1) IFCS safeties. 
      2) Gforce safeties
      3) command level stability
      4) ESP
      5) Reticle Focus 
      6) Reticle mode
      7) i heard people talking about decup. How does that work? 
      What do those command do for your ship and best way/time to use them? 
      Pm me if you can answer some of these command, bit do not want to reply here.

      So I've been rocking an okay joystick for a while, a Logitech Extreme 3D. It works well enough in Freespace 2, but in SC it's not precise enough and I can't aim well at all. I've moved to a mouse and keyboard setup since, and have drastically improved my combat aim. My question is if a better joystick might yield better results? I see people mentioning HOTAS controllers and dual stick controllers as options and was looking for feedback from the community.
