Cannot Figure Out Movement

Apparently, your movement changes based on where your character is looking? Have you ever had one of those moments where you feel like a total nincompoop? That's me, staring down at the keypad trying to remember how to go left when I have been looking in one direction or another.

Please, I just purchased the full game a few minutes ago. Is there some way to make the direction your character walks persistent, meaning that left will always be left no matter which direction the character is looking? Maybe a way to move where clicking the mouse brings the character toward the tile? Anything of that sort would be greatly appreciated. Right now I feel goofy like I can't even walk straight.

Thank you.

Hey Jumpyfoot. Movement and rotation are tied to turns or fraction of turns (ie, rotation progresses time) and some things in the game are tied to this mechanic. Pressing numpads to rotate and move would be more confusing since rotation 180 degrees to move back would take about 2 turns.

If you're having trouble with orientation, try skipping strafe buttons (A & D) and stick to moving forward and backward (W & S), and rotating left and right when needed (Q & E). Using just rotations should be simple enough.
