Ross...first, congratulations on a job well done! Great looking program.

 

Quite a few controllers have been asking me tonight about [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igning the + key (next to the - _) as the aircraft select. Being an ASRC jockey, I had no clue. So, I tried it myself, and sure enough, can't do it. It seems really bizarre to have to jump over to the + key on the number pad, then back to the main part of the keyboard.

 

Am I missing something, or is there a way around that?

VRC does not support key combinations such as "Shift + =" for ASEL, CSEL or PTT. So you could use just the = key if you want, but then you won't be able to type an equals sign in any text or chat.

 

Note that I find the numpad + key very natural for ASEL, since the way I select aircraft is usually by entering the last bit of their callsign, then pressing ASEL. For example, if I want to select DAL123, I would type 123 followed by numpad +.

I use ` for aircraft, and \ for controllers. I can't think of any circomestances where I need to use the \ for other purposes

I agree it's not 100% ideal for laptops, but keep in mind VRC's multi-monitor design goal. If it's really a huge problem, my suggestion would be to purchase a USB numeric keypad or regular keyboard. (Though I imagine using ` is a much simpler fix. )
