We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Rebounded Movement Keys

You can rebind any of the keys listed above, by pressing escape and going to options then controls. From there you can rebind all the controls.

Similarly, going into the GameUserSettings.ini files located in "C:\Users\[NAME]\AppData\Local\Astro\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor" allows you to edit all of the games keybinds, including a few not available ingame. For example, mouse sensitivity is:

  • AxisName="LookUpRate",Key=MouseY,Scale=-1.000000
  • AxisName="TurnRate",Key=MouseX,Scale=1.000000

Quick keyboard assists[edit | edit source]

When picking up an item, hitting Tab will place it directly into your backpack if there is free space without having to place it manually.
