These days, it’s mostly that NetHack uses those directional keys, which is a good argument for keeping them.

(Other rogue likes may also, but I’m not familiar with them.)

I'm unconvinced. The average gamer expects a controller or a touchscreen. WASD is very much a PC first-person shooter thing, and I don't see any reason to think it instinctively translates from that...

I use those all the time, so I’m well aware. I don’t _think_ that there’s anyone running around with more than ten inscribed wands and rods, but people have proved me wrong before.

I also...

I think that all frontends can differentiate between the two. (Except angband.live, because it doesn’t have a frontend.)

Since my machine defaults to using all the function keys for Stuff,...

Aim (target nearest) - target the nearest creature (could be more explicit)
Fire default ammo at target - Actually fire ammo. Also, as written, doesn’t target anything.

I’ve taken Nick’s idea and run with it. Here’s a proposal for a new command set.

Some notes:

Some of my move choices are carefully reasoned. Some are “Well, I stole its old key and it...

Advantage? Perhaps not; I always figured it was easier for the numpad players to operate shift and control with their left hand while trying directions with their right, but some people disagree, and...

Ok, that’s some good reasons against moving run off period. I hadn’t considered the other keys on the keypad (I’ve been roguelike since before Angband), and that’s some prime real estate.

So, if we were to do this, (and it’s mostly an idea that’s separate from keymap reorganization, except that doing it frees a letter) there’s an argument to be made for splitting the rods into aimed...

So do I, but I use shift.

For those who use the run command separately, do you want to tell us why you prefer to do it that way?

(I doubt it’s going away or getting noticeably less convenient,...

Because you can have a lot of them, and it makes looking at the list of choices easier. If you use inscriptions, it also means you don’t run out of numbers.

However, some consolidation would...

That’s why I didn’t suggest moving l, L, and ^L; they’re both intuitive and have a nice stacking of related commands.

We could move them all to x X and ^X. Put save and exit on the now-freed...

Also ^L.

I’d also suggest including a pair of pref files for those who don’t want to retrain their muscle memory to load.

There’s unused, un-shifted keys out there. p and v, for instance. I’d argue for Tab, and use v for “shoot with default ammo”. There’s also those that could be freed up by moving a less-used command,...

There’s a lot of necessary differences between the two command sets, but there’s also a lot of differences that only exist for historical reasons, either because a different command used to occupy a...
