Desktop Controls
#1

The upcoming v0.13.0 release for My Colony is going to focus on improving gameplay controls for players using a keyboard/mouse combo, on the web, Windows 10, or on the regular Desktop versions of the game.  This thread is for getting input on ways to improve controls using keyboard/mouse, including shortcut keys, or anything else you can think of.  I will be starting work on the update on Thursday probably, so any suggestions posted here will be taken under consideration!

Zoom in/out using the scroll wheel on the mouse.

If there is a way to make the action menu appear next to the mouse cursor. Like if I click on a bot on the right side of the screen, I don't have to mouse all the way over to the left side of the screen to get to it's menu.

Scrolling the map using the arrow keys instead of click and drag.

Holding Alt+S and Click on Building / Pavement : instant selling without confirmation
Holding Alt+U and Click on Building / Pavement : instant upgrading without confirmation

press W : same as clicking on Idle Vehicle button
When Vehicle selected, press M : same as Move button
When Vehicle selected, press H : same as Havest button
When Vehicle or Building selected, press B : open Build Options window
Mass Driver selected, press E : open Export Goods window
Landing Pad / Nuclear Reactor selected, press I : open Import Goods window

Engine Settings : custom shortcuts, so we can set them as we like

Thanks a ton for the zoom in/out with the mouse scroll wheel. That's going to save me tons of time.

Send a message from the red planet to the zolarg. When you open the message there will be an option to send a gift.

I have consulate level 3 on red planet and Deep space transceiver on another but I cannot find the icon in the consulate needed to gift a colony which is not in my commonwealth
avatar
@IITIANS You'll need to build the Deep Space Transceiver, consulate, or capital building. If you are independent on both zolarg and human colonies you can send an embassy.
