*Can we map the 1-4 ship abilities to a different button? Or at the very least allow me to reassign then as I see fit? I play on a 47 inch TV & it is VERY difficult to look down at my keyboard to push a button & then back up to my TV in a type of game-play where every twitch and second counts. I get killed more often than I get kills when trying to use said abilities. I'd personally like to see them mapped to the scroll wheel.
Just FYI: You can.
Maybe you want to take a look at the preferences menu, there is a tab on the bottom that states "Galactic starfighter keybinds" or something like that, that should do the trick.
