I know i am no programmer and i am out of place here.

But why add 2 variables with the same value, i think that simply complicates the code.

I am not a programmer either :)

all for configurability. I don't want to impose using the same hotkey for both instances on the user. I can easily imagine that some people might want one, but not the other... or different hotkeys... this way, you can use the same hotkey, but don't have to :)

there IS now a force-fire mode, simply hold control when selecting a target to ignore LOF.

I'm tempted to ask if we could look at modifying the battlescape UI to make some of these options more visible to the player (strafing, force fire etc.)?
