Imprudence Poll: Double-Click Teleport: on or off by default?

Imprudence 1.2 has a feature borrowed from the Emerald viewer: double-click teleport, i.e. double-clicking somewhere in the 3D view will instantly teleport your avatar to that location. There are also pie menu entries, “Go Here”, which do the same thing as the double-click teleport.

However, some users have commented that the double-click is too easy to accidently trigger, and can interfere with double-clicking on scripted objects. We have added a confirmation dialog to prevent accidental teleports, but that isn’t an ideal solution, because confirmation dialogs can be annoying and disruptive too.

We’ll be adding an option to allow users to choose whether they want the double-click behavior, but we’re still deciding whether it should be enabled or disabled by default. Mostly this depends on whether more people find double-click useful or annoying.

So, here’s a chance to have your say: Should double-click teleport be enabled or disabled by default?

    I would say OFF by default.
    really!

  2. Myth

    Would say Off, as it’s now.
    If you would add a CTRL/Alt/Shift key combination for double-clicking , would be lot better.
    Thinks that some people use Imprudence on combat sims, and doubleclicking would mean tp to target, called invalid kinda often

    How do you enable the ability to search adult content?

  4. Jacek Antonelli

    Imprudence can’t search for adult content in this version, but it will be able to in 1.3.

    combination of Myth’s suggestion, and a checkbox toggle, in the main UI somewhere if possible. with the behavior being that it’s never really ‘off’ but the checkbox toggles whether a key combo is required or is not required. or even, something like:

    Double click teleport:

    ( ) Disabled
    ( ) Keys + single left click Keys: [ ]+[ ]+[ ]
    ( ) Double left click

  6. Eternus

    well, add a keys + double too in case people want that

    I like Emerald’s double-click-autowalk more than its double-click TP. And I like being able to turn it off, because yeah, I’m always doubleclicking by accident.

    I don’t care too much what the default is, though, as long as it can be changed in Preferences, and the change sticks.

    Here’s the solution I settled on for now: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jjacek/4079271146/

    Off. For god’s sake, off. Less confusing for everyone all around if it’s off, especially new users and people in the immediate vicinity of someone accidentally double-clicking.
