Suggestion: "Precise mouse mode"
« on: November 07, 2018, 04:08:08 pm »
Watching a few streams on CW4, I had the idea of holding a key to slow the mouse cursor down a bit to be more precise when building units/painting terrain. For example, if you hold down the Alt key, your mouse cursor will slow down and you can place units more accurately(Like the tower/collector unit). Any thoughts?

I wonder if that could help with "drawing" straight lines for terraforming or terrain in the editor.

I use a hardware cursor... so cursor movement doesn't get sluggish on machines where the game runs slowly.  So the only thing I think I can control is the image of the cursor.  The movement is under the control of the OS (and it is more complicated that you might think... it isn't a linear response on either windows or the mac, and the movement curve on MacOS is different than under windows, can be configured, etc.)

And I recently found out that Windows basically ignores the mouse acceleration  settings. :)
