Middle mouse button or control.

Are you reading this, mattn? This is only the 10,000th time or something. How about we change it to RMB already?

I agree with BTAxis: RMB turn would be a better default.

BTW

You can change bindings.

You can also edit your keys.cfg to do this when UFO:AI starts.

*I* know that. But I reinstall the game rather frequently, and having to change the binding manually every time is kind of a pain. Besides, new players won't know this.

not sure which manual you mean. its confusing, but there are a few here and there. this

http://ufoai.ninex.info/wiki/index.php/Manual/Keymap

bit of a manual does say. the wiki FAQ

http://ufoai.ninex.info/wiki/index.php/FAQ

is a good place to start for many things (a sticky topic pointing to the wiki FAQ would be handy - ?admins).

You have made the classic error of suggesting an improvement. Now you are honour-bound to contribute.

BTAxis: I thought you would know, but it took me ages to work it out, so I thought I would share.

 :D Nice formulation!

I'd recommend changing it to RMB, too... for everyone asking, there are 30 people not asking. Besides, it's much more intuitive, too.

OK, well have a look here too

http://ufoai.ninex.info/wiki/index.php/Manual

and other parts of the wiki. If you find it sadly lacking, you can improve it!
