Ok, this is hard to verify, since I don't have a heading command to give me
my current facing, but I think there's a disconnect between the mouse
steering and the Shift-a and Shift-d turning commands. Here's an example of
what I mean.
I walk out of the northern shack and take stock of the situation. I hear a
zombie off to my right and, using the mouse spin around what seems to be
about 60 degrees. I drill the bastard with two shots, neat as you please,
and hear something off to my left. I hit shift-a, expecting to end up
facing southwest, or at most south, and end up facing southeast.
I think what's happening is that the nearest compass points aren't being
updated by the mouse events, so that the keyboard commands hold onto the
south facing until one is hit, regardless of how much spinning around I'm
doing with the mouse.
There is another issue concerning the map borders, but I think it's related
to the same phenomenon. I'm running hell bent for leather from a gaggle of
zombies and I run into the western map border. Ok, thinks I, I'll just hit
shift-d a couple of times and run along the border. I have lost track of
the last keyboard facing change I made, so am puzzled when I end up facing
the wrong way, again, probably based on old facing information.
I really want a heading command. I also want something like an alt-left or
right click to replace the shift-a and shift-d keys, so I don't have to take
my hands off the mouse. I don't want to have to switch back and forth in
the heat of battle.
P.s. And I want a pony and world peace too.
