Err, what? You mean sliding?

Maybe when its been made fully functional in fs2_open. As far as I know, AI does not know how to handle it properly and controls are still hardcoded.

I haven't researched into this matter personally so correct me if I am wrong.

Yes you can bank your Star Fury. 7 & 9 on the keypad.
Be warned: This site's admins stole 100s of hours of my work. They will do it to you.

no guys, he want's to know if you guys could make each gun fire independantly of the other (you know, left-right-left-right)  un-linked firing as opposed to linked firing, or make it swtchable so you can link/unlink your guns at will, like in IFH.

Incorrect. One, the AI is incredibly hard with sliding, they know how to handle the extra axeses (axi?).
Two the SCP did fix it so that you can change the controls. They're under ship, and listed as thrust up, thrust down, thrust right, and thrust left. I have mine bound to WASD.

Now thruster effects to show that and it would be perfect.

A Starfury with the right thrusters firing at all times would be cool.

yeah but then it is fixed on cycle

need to be able to swap between cycle and not-cycle at will, preferably with any gun on any ship.

ok, now it seems as if he is refering to strafing....  if that is the case and you want to increase strafing speed just change it in the ships.tbl file.

The SF Maras can be seen sliding on occassion.  

Unfortunately wingmen seem to have a hard enough time just maneuvering in formation.  Give them the ability to slide and we will all really, really, really be sorry.
