personally I very like WASD camera movement it feels like much more comfortable. I asked Godde long time ago how he controls. Seems he still uses WASD. At some point I gave up, because WASD and using shortcuts for buildings and unit states just did not fit into my keyboard layout :D
For example I mapped b to firestate, it was just a agreement with not having factories on a hotkey, because I just do not need fastories so often........ I kept b. But other keys like WASD are all mapped to buildings somehow or units ( which is good ). Maybe there would be better layouts, but I think it would need a good time of work to figure it out also to fit US/DE keyboards ( z,y; y,z )
But it seems that the use of ctrl and shift is now valid. I will try that.
WASD is much smoother when you do in parallel unit movements with mouse.
btw. is it treated as cheat if someone copies Godde keymapping into LuaFolder? :-)
