Useful commands for Star Citizen 2.4

Star Citizen Alpha 2.4 is now LIVE and and with persistence comes changes to the key bindings. Alpha 2.4 brings with it a new item port system for loading your hangar with ships and hangar flair as well as configuring your ship loadouts on the Port Olisar landing pads.

The key bindings (controls & commands) have been radically altered for this patch with many keys changing for flight, on foot and EVA.

All key settings can be found in game by accessing your options menu and looking for the Key Bindings tab.

While some people have voiced their complaints about the new keybindings we find them more conveniently placed. For example, flashlight was “O” but is now “T” which is far more conveniently placed. Space break used to be SPACEBAR but is now “X” and Strafe Up is now SPACEBAR which is slightly less convenient for quickly stopping the ship but more convenient for strafing up on takeoff.
