New thing I learned about Guns of Icarus
« on: February 11, 2015, 09:23:15 pm »
I've played GOIO for about a year now, and I still find things that I didn't know about the game.

For example, just now, I discovered that, when you are on the ship-screen, you can press your movement keys (wasd) to rotate the ship, such you can examine the bottom of the ship.

I feel like my words aren't doing justice. I'm kinda mind blown to write correctly. Try it for yourselves, go to ship-screen and press your movement keys.


I bet there are numerous other things that you've learned after having played for a while. Like, b to captain-target spot, the drums when other ships are near, etc. etc. Post'em here! :D

I used to think "shake x spots" meant you had to shake your ship around in an area. Cue many frustrated dancing ships

When I first discovered this it was right after one of the patches and I thought it was a bug in the game till I got talking to others.

You don't need to zoom in with the spyglass to spot stuff. You can just click on a ship with the spyglass out

No I meant like when you are in the right click zoom, you can scroll up or down and change the zoom level, that's what I discovered recently

Targetting reticle tells you stuff. like arming time. Did not know this, and I'm still not sure how it exactly works. But its a thing.

Me, Lueosi and InkJet have been recently updating the wiki quite a bit, lots of really good content is in there. No longer is it an outdated source. You should check it out.

It's like this is actually a multiplayer game that is actively being played. Thanks for the effort.

Tar must be activated by pressing button. Since when was this a thing?

But if you have tar on '3', and bind the activation to '3' it will work the same as it used to.
