Lock/Set player roll

Have an idea for Corneroids? Well don't keep it to yourself!

Lock/Set player roll

A keybind to lock/set the player roll in 90 degree increments. It would be incredibly useful when building. The lack of directions is messing with my head.

Haven't played that much Descent, heh? :P

Changing this wouldn't be that hard, the problem is, with mouselook, you're always changing the way you are looking anyway, around all three axes. In other words, what I think you'd actually want is to have your feet always oriented towards the center of gravity of the closest object (thus simulating the usual way "flight" cheats work in games without 6DOF) - toggling the behaviour using a keypress. Does that sound close to the mark?

Not quite, but I see what you mean. That could be an option in the settings but I would rather use the system I described. With the addition of locking the player's feet in the "down" direction after setting roll. This should also disable the roll keybinds.
