Title: Outerra SpaceNavigator (3D Conexxion) Support. Suggestion
Post by: deathevor on July 18, 2012, 10:20:02 am

It might not apply to many people*, but the support for this thing would be very useful - http://www.3dconnexion.com/products/spacenavigator.html (http://www.3dconnexion.com/products/spacenavigator.html)
Navigation demonstration - http://youtu.be/k2UMW2JH9o0?t=6s (http://youtu.be/k2UMW2JH9o0?t=6s)

The 3dconnexion shared SDK for this product, and of course willing to have more supported products -http://www.3dconnexion.com/service/software-developer.html
So I hope it will simplify adding this feature.

* It not apply to many, as mostly this thing is common between 3D modellers, those who work in gaming and level design. But not gamers itself.
However this is very useful thing to those who want to explore, work and contribute to Outerra. It really adds precision to navigation, therefore precision to modifications.

Additionally the support can be added to control objects using this tool (for example moving buildings in 3d space, during level design)
