Controls for Arms

Post by loggerhall92 » Wed Jan 09, 2019 3:31 pm

Not sure if this is a bug or not, but has anyone noticed the controls are backwards from what they were on 17? I am talking about the Y Axis while moving the booms up and down. You used to be able to boom up and extend in one motion, now you have to do it in 2. I don't like the easy arm controls, as I feel it takes away from the range of motion.

I have tried this with invert on and off, makes no difference.

I dunno why Giants would flip that axis around from one game to the next, but it makes logging no fun, for me, imo.

go into the game settings and turn off the easy crane controls option, this will put the controls back to the same mode/style as 17 and let you control each arm section/control individually

Hmmm, not sure then, I know I did a little manual remapping of the controls as well to get them working the way I prefer to have them with the Saitek Side Panel.

The one thing that gets me is you can't lift and tip at the same time in one fluid motion. I miss that the most from 17. (On console)

Yes, this is what I am talking about lol. Same thing for cranes, you can't lift and extend at the same time.

Hopefully we'll get that fluid motion in a future update. I can't imagine that it was purposely redesigned this way.
