Post subject:  Noob Question on Moving Around

Hello!

I'm interested in recording some video for an animated scifi movie. How can I fly around freely in Celestia without being locked to a specific destination?

Cheers from NC, and thanks!

The numeric pad can be used to control the direction of travel, while the function keys (and a few others) control the speed. A few of these commands also are available if you connect a joystick.

Select the menu Help --> Controls and scroll down to the bottom for a list of these commands.

Or see pages 30 et seq. in the Celestia User's Guide, which is downloadable from http://celestiamotherlode.net/catalog/d ... ation.html
