The reason given is: WIP

Shores of Hazeron is primarily played from a first person perspective, all windows and menus are modular windows that can be moved around and re-sized as desired.

Mouse-look Vs Hand Cursor

The hand cursor.

In free-look mode you are in control of your character. Moving the mouse changes the direction your character is looking.

In hand cursor mode, you have a cursor that looks like a hand when over the main scene. In this mode you are also able to use any window and buttons in on the UI. The hand cursor is also used to pick up items in the main scene. While in hand cursor mode all keyboard controls are disabled.


While in mouse-look mode, you are able to move your character.

By default the movement keys are as follows:

  • W
    Move forward.
  • A
    Strafe left.
  • D
    Strafe right.
  • S
    Move backward.
    In zero-G it is used to brake.
  • C
    Crouch, allowing others to mount you.
    In zero-G it is used to ascend.
  • E
    Enter/Exit vehicle, turret, chair, bed, etc.

For more information, see the Controls page.


The HUD is fairly simple.
