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.
Number shortcuts for the top menu stuff (settings, idle bots, transperacy )
Letter shortcuts for buling harvesting ideling

Thanks a ton for the zoom in/out with the mouse scroll wheel. That's going to save me tons of time.
Good to hear. More on the way based on the above recommendations
I forgot the some basic ones :
When Building / Pavement selected, press S : same as Sell Button
When Building / Pavement selected, press U : same as Upgrade button
Great job. All the shortcuts so far are great time savers. Thank you!
