I start studying for my ship handling licence on Brazil, so I decide test this simulator in some manoeuvres using the VLCC and I found in some manoeuvre, the ship acting too different from it suppose to act. Like the manoeuvre "Half astern to dead in the water", after she is putting in 6 kts, rudder amidships, she is putting half astern, rudder amidships until dead in the water. If this ship is right hand propeller, I expect she about 80 to 90 degree to starboard from the start heading when she is dead in the water (no wind, no current and no shallow water), and this didn't happened. The start heading was 263 and the final heading 287 (only 25 degree to starboard).

So, if I can do a suggestion, is first, give more ship's detail, like, kind of propulsion, kind of propellers and drafts.

Another thing is about the chart, we should be able to save the positions on the chart, to make a history and increase the possibilities for this simulator.

Hello bosio11,
Sorry for coming so late, there are indeed so few questions now that I can answer.

The Settings.xml file in your ...\Documents\ShipSimExtremes Userdata\Profiles\YourProfileName folder contains the mapping of the keys in plain text format. The first line name is "ControlSettings", at around the 57828th line. Unfortunately, the InputLabels of the keys refer to ActionID numbers, of which you can find the default assignment in a different file,
C:\Program Files (x86)\Vstep\ShipSimExtremes\Projects\ShipSimExtremes\Data\KeyMapper\DefaultActions.xml
This file corresponds to the key groups of the ShipSim Extremes options, with -1 serving as a void placeholder.
Modifying this file with notepad to avoid inserting unwanted formatting characters, after having backuped the file, should solve your issue.
Good luck, don't forget to backup (a copy should do the job) prior any modification.

Also, I should have added that the InputColumn number, 0 or 1, refers to the primary or secondary assignment of the key, and that the default values will not be made active unless you go back to default values in the options menu. If the changes concern only a small number of keys, you should modify both files according to your wishes, and of course, don't forget to backup.

Hi Clanky,
Nice to know you are still around. We have lost a few folk since you were around last, but there are some of us who still hang on. Old age is getting the best of some of us, including myself, but life goes on just the same.

After setting all the controls i need, i noticed that some of them are in conflict.
I post an example of my situation:

- i'm wondering if there is a way to unassign definitively a control ?
- is there somewhere in the game folders a config file for the controls ?
