yeah i prefer the gamepad plus i don't like binding mice keys..
i prefer the idea that there is another setting to go to the old way
I'd honestly like to see the old mode added back in as an option. Creative mode flight is a dime a dozen, but the IC2 jet pack was always easier to control when moving quickly. It was also one of the few things that kept me playing IC2, since few other mods offer a good alternative to creative flight. I also despise having to hit another hot key just to land, it feels like i'm taking a step back towards the stone age of fighting the game's controls to accomplish what should naturally happen. Not to mention hot key real estate is valuable--I can't see devoting a button to mode switching when the only thing i'd use it for is the jet pack. I usually only use the mode switch hot key twice for each world that I build--once for the jet pack and once for the electric wrench.
