Throttle control suggestions
The current throttle control is functional, but could use some polish. For instance:

1. Acceleration/decceleration - right now when the R or F button is pushed the throttle increases or decreases incredibly fast. This should be a bit slower for better speed control.

2. Full stop - it's very difficult to come to a full stop and too easy to go in reverse without knowing. A button for full stop would help; also there could be a short (two second) delay before going in reverse while holding down the F key.

3. HUD indicate we are moving in reverse - currently when the ship speed reaches zero while holding the F key, the ship speed just starts to increase again. Maybe it should be a negative number, or show REV, or something to indicate we are moving backwards.

Small things, but will add some polish to the game. The one I'd like to see the most is slower acceleration/decceleration.

Any thoughts?

1 and 3 are doable and we will look at implimenting somethign for it. as fpr 2, Shift+F will put you at 0% throttle. and Shift+R is 100%.
