During this time XLN will be closed so it can be backed up. When the new DNS takes effect, you will see a basic page with a message regarding the move.

General WASD Moves the Camera v1.10

an AutoHotkey™ script that rebinds the WASD keys to behave like the Arrow Keys.

  1. XL Nation Staff
    Note: This mod is independently made from Red Stapler's WASD Arrows mod. I didn't even noticed his until he messaged me. Mine is based on the script lots of people have used for Fallout New Vegas™, to change the 2 key to behave like the 8 key, so people could use the 2 key for a weapon rather than the ammunition swap.

    After his message I decided to delete my upload as his was very similar, however he pointed out the fact his was a script which required you to install AutoHotkey and then run the script.
    My mod is an executable, which automatically runs the script. Some people might not like downloading and opening exe files, but it's nothing more than 6 lines of text.
    This mod doesn't install anything and it doesn't require you to install anything either.

    So what does it do?
    - It runs an AutoHotkey™ script that rebinds the WASD keys to behave like the Arrow Keys. This way you can move the camera in Cities XL 2012™ with the WASD keys. Turning the camera works as well.
    And should you need to use the WASD to type, for instance when creating a new city name or when alt tabbing into Windows™, pressing ScrollLock suspends and unsuspends the script (thx for the suggestion RedStapler)

    Below is the code in the script:
    #IfWinActive CitiesXL
    w::Up
    a::Left
    s::Down
    d::Right
    ScrollLock::Suspend
    Installation Pre-requiste(s):
    None
