[USABILITY] Ingame shortcuts and functionality
« on: July 04, 2011, 10:18:02 pm »
Hi, if at all possible could the following shortcuts be implemented (or created by myself somehow):

Battlescape:
- Level up/down (1 to 8):  Ctrl+MouseWheel Up/Down
- Stop soldier: Make the soldier stop after he/she started walking to a square: S or Esc?

Global:
- If a game has been started then Ctrl+S will save it with an auto filename (eg: date-time.sav).

Then In the production screen:
There's a lot of space below the item preview/stats for a description. It would be very helpful i the item's purpose could be displayed there.

That's all I could come up with for now, thanks :)

Not easy ones... :)

Battlescape:
- Level up/down (1 to 8):  Ctrl+MouseWheel Up/Down

I don't think we support Ctrl+<anything> key combos yet. (so it's not so easy)

- Stop soldier: Make the soldier stop after he/she started walking to a square: S or Esc?

Movement happens on server while you press button on client....

Global:
- If a game has been started then Ctrl+S will save it with an auto filename (eg: date-time.sav).

There is a quicksave mechanism: F1 - quicksave, F2 - quickload. (quicksave is automatically done on starting missions)

Level up/down is currently by up and down arrows, though it only moves one level per button press. It is still often a quick way to adjust the view.
