You all remember the CTRL key function of KR, enabling to turn your char around without walking, at walls and tables aso?
SA does not support this in any way anymore, but I think this is essential for good roleplay!
I know the macro criers but why not just make that bindable to a custom key?

Being that I have a Vesperian, do you know how painful it is to line up and do marching in SA? :(

Can we change this please?

I missed it too in the beginning but a short right-click usually does the trick. Just make it a very brisk click, otherwise you'll walk one step.

This would work in 2D but not in SA client.
You cannot turn towards tables and such this way using SA client :(

Nope, those clicking and arrow key things work in 2D only at present.

Hey Finnias, in 2D everything works fine as always. The problem is with the SA client only.

Sorry but no it doesn't matter how fast ye click, ye will always bounce of the wall or any other item blocking the way in the desired direction. Most RPers seem to use 2D, in that client this is no problem and it would work like you suggested.
I wanted to bring up this topic because I really need to use the nahanced client due to the screen resolution. In KR you could hold the CTRL key down to get a similar behaviour as it is in 2D but this has been removed/deactivated in enhanced client because of a so called 'macro problem'.

Just tested in my Enhanced Client, but for me a short (right-)click works fine to just turn... But only if I click close to the toon... When I click further away, it doesn't work.

But that makes sense, as (right-)clicking further away means running instead of walking...

Doing this with no items, walls or something like around it works or course.
Please try the following:
1) Stand in front of a table or wall
2) try to turn your char, to have it look over the table or against the wall
You will bounce of the wall or table and the char turns away from the table.

Good RP example would be: you are at a market stand; someone shouts and you turn around.
After a small talk you want to turn back to the table. This is simply impossible in enhanced client. If you got any fix/hack/cutom ui addon that can correct this behaviour. Please let me know.

See, there's additional circumstances you did not mention before... ;)
I can confirm that in those cases, there is indeed unwanted behavior in that the toon takes one or more steps in the direction they are facing!

EDIT: Interestingly enough, the CTRL still works together with the arrow keys, but *only* for the world's diagonals (IOW: It doesn't accept CTRL+LEFT+UP to face North, you'll end up either facing NE or NW, depening on which cursor key you pressed last...)
