Does this have native support for 360 pads?
Note that having generic joystick support isn't the same as having good gamepad support. Because of the round design of gamepad's analog stick, they do not register full X/Y values when moving the stick diagonally. Games need to be programmed specifically to deal with this.

So please don't say yes it supports joysticks, I need to know if they specifically added 360 pad support.

Yes, Retrovirus supports Microsoft's Gamepad in game and the menus, and has both default and customizable controls for it.

We are still tuning the aiming, so we'd appreciate thoughts on that from anyone who prefers the gamepad.

I love this game! I'm using the 360 Gamepad. Aiming is a challange though.

Aiming with the 360 controller can be difficult. When aiming, it pulls to far to the left or the right. Is their any possibility for an auto aim or aim assists feature for the 360 controller?
I use an Xbox360 controller. I haven't found any setup on the controller that comes close to the level of control you'll get with a keyboard and mouse. But I'm stubborn, so I keep trying. Default control setup is no good because up/down is assigned to the dpad, meaning you wouldn't be able to go up or down while simultaneously going forward/back/left/right (controlled by the left stick). I currently am trying out the following config, which is working okay, and which my 11 year old son loves - obviously, he's too young to know Descent, or keyboard/mouse control in a 6dof game.

Forward/Back/Left/Right - Left stick
Pitch/Yaw (Look) - Right stick
Up - Right trigger
Down - Left trigger
Fire - Right shoulder
Roll - ??? Hmm. I ain't got it.

This setup requires you to use index fingers on the shoulder buttons, and middle fingers on the trigger. I decided to do this (instead of leaving "Fire" on the right trigger), because it felt more natural to use my index finger to fire.
