It has been brought up at least in my feedback, here (about all action bar actions, not just jump, though it's the most often used), and Alice_Ashpool's feedback, there, but those were in the middle of big lists, a while ago. I feel as if this came a couple more times. I don't know if there ever was a thread specific to this. And it's probably good to (re)draw attention to this.

TLDR : +1.


Hoping we'll be able to create great assumptions-free Custom Characters and be given great roleplay options.

Yes. We demand more sexy jump hotkeys.

Honestly I'd like a hotkey for every of the eight actions on the action bar. But definitely jump first and foremost.

As in, reduce Jump's usefulness so it's not horribly OP like it is?

I'm all in for it.

Situation : the party is on the left-hand side of a bridge. There's a gap in the middle. They want to go on the right-hand side.
Tabletop roleplayers : "we go on the other side".
Original Final Fantasy 7 : I bring the character to the gap, jump happens automatically.
Platform game : I have to press jump (+direction of where I jump).

The current system feels too Platformey, in my view.

And as I argued elsewhere, the fun brought by the jump (with the spells Jump and Feather Fall in particular) is more than counter-balanced by the tediousness it brings. The net result at the moment is that jump has a negative impact on the gameplay.

Maybe Larian just mistaken Baldur’s Gate with Jade Empire?

Agree with the main two themes forming here... would be nice to have a hotkey for the multitude of environmental places its needed(which i do kinda like)... would be even nicer if Larian decheesed its use in combat... and maybe separated it from disengage completely... and also corrected that action(and push for that matter) to actually be an action...

Larians tinkering with these rules inadvertently(hopefully) eliminated a good deal of the tactical side combat was supposed to imo possess... got a little off topic sry... kinda all related though...
