Hotkeys list

Postby grothmag » Fri Jun 22, 2018 2:44 am

Is there a list of hotkeys (and click-modifer keys) anywhere? Some "hidden" ones are in the readme, but it would be nice to have a master list... I would gleefully make this topic such a list, but I only know a few. The manual has some, but there appear to be many others (for example, I gather there's one to rotate ships rather than moving them).

Well, why not? Here's what I've scrounged so far, from the manual, and from Arioch's post on Steam. Obviously, I'm not mentioning the obvious "left-click to select, right-click to do something" standards, and "click" means "left-click". :) I have only included gameplay hotkeys, not those providing developer info.

alt+x: quit

Main (Strategic) Map:

Arrow keys or WASD or left-drag: pan map
Mouse wheel: zoom
Spacebar: Next Turn
Escape: exit current window, or bring up Game Menu if no window is displayed
Right-click notification icon: dismiss notification
Shift-click planet: move population
Right-click ship in the fleet pane: invert selected ships
With fleet selected: hold-right-click displays range of fleet
Shift-click Undo/Redo: Undo or Redo entire turn
Crtl-Shift-click Undo/Redo: Undo or Redo 10 turns
F1: Console
F10: Game Menu

Production queue:
Right-click: add item to queue, rather than as current build target
Shift-click ship: open Ship Designer for that class
B: Buy current production target

Ship Designer:
Shft-drag component: copy rather than move component

Tactical Combat:
arrow keys or WASD or left-drag: pan map
Mouse-wheel: zoom
Shift-click or shift-drag: Add or remove ships from current selection
Double-click ship: Select all ships of the same type
Right-click on weapon listing in the bottom pane: Disable autofire for this weapon

That was referring to the ones in the readme.txt file, such as showing FPS.
