Title: Keys for sun position?
Post by: 2eyed on January 23, 2014, 04:10:55 pm
Is there a way to define keys for adjusting sun position?
it would be nice to have a shortcut.

The position is defined by the day of year, the time of day and of course the latitude/longitude of your position. These settings can be tweaked by pressing the "locations" button, then move to "sun". I dont know shortcuts.

There should be some ability to add up down keys OR even an assignable axis so I can put a knob on my desk and CONTROL THE SUN!

Actually you dont control the sun, but the whole planet ;)

... CONTROL THE SUN!

 ... i think RA would be angry to loose his job with the Sun then. Lets just build some planetary rocket rotation/propulsion devices on the poles and equator with some ergonomic manipulation way  ... like a brain activity scanner. Yes, thought-navigate a planet seems to be the right way to do such a mighty task. :D

Well, my question was merely targeted to the developers, if there was a key press for setting sun elevation or hight or TOD, since OT looks best with low sun conditions. Going through the UI for adjusting, with one or the other eye( UI in stereo is broken) in stereoscopic view isnt comfy.
