Customization Xbox Controls

6 posts in this topic

Love the game, but it took me a really long time to feel comfortable with the controls on the xbox controller.  For me the controls weren't very intuitive and I found them to be my biggest source of frustration with the game early on.  I quickly got the sense that the game is designed for PC and was simply ported onto Console, which is fine especially since I can play it on windows 10. The cursor just feels very awkward with the controller, but I am not so sure that changing the way this works on the xbox is possible at the moment; however, a much more feasible development may be to implement a way to customize individual controls or at least have a couple of different control schemes to select from on xbox.

Thanks for listening.  Seriously, keep up the good work. It is an amazing game already and I am excited to see it progress.

same here. 
startet with the 60 min test few Weeks ago and felt very "uncomfortable" with the controls. 
then saw a lets play yesterday from gronkh and had to buy the preview because the game looks verry amazing. what i already thought after the test, but the controls.... 

litteraly spent 60% of the time fighting with the controls. 

i hope the controls are not final. its not even the button setting but the way you look and the way you handle the different tools.

i think its not only the key mapping. 

you cannot use the curser the way you can on PC. 
this results in a totally uncoordinated view. (this is one of my main problems)

for me it would improve a lot if the camera would stick to the view and can be unlocked (the way it is now) by using LT or whatever.

Personally, I'd love the option to alter the sprint control from 'clicking & holding left stick' to holding down 'B' (or other thumb-saving method); in 'Dark Souls' games, sprint is 'hold B' and I've about 500 hours across all games - after 29 hours in 'Astroneer,' am getting thumb cramps as the vehicles control poorly and I've resorted to legging it everywhere. The 'Deus Ex' games map sprint to LB, so not everyone can handle the 'Call of Duty' thumb-mangler method!
