Rotating ships during combat

Post by Flinx »

Is there a hotkey to rotate a ship in place during combat? The AI's ships rotate in place when necessary, and I have sometimes pressed the space bar to get the AI to rotate my ship for me and then press the space bar again to regain control. Could you add one if there is not; each press could rotate the ship in place by 45 degrees and deduct the appropriate movement points.

No hotkey but right-click will allow you to rotate the ship. eg: set the mouse pointer away from the ship and press the right-mouse button to rotate in that direction.

Or were you strictly looking for a hotkey?
