List of shortcuts

Post by DaMi »

I love how the game can be controlled from the keyboard. Is there a current list of keyboard shortcuts? I know some indication is mentioned in the manual, but there is much much more.

Good notice.

There is really many keyboard shortcuts in the actual game and a list would be useful.

The list is really cool, thank you.

Here are my another suggestions:

Contract window
1 - 8 sorts the table in descending order now, great. Can every button sort the table both ascending and descending?

City
F10 - can second press turn the Option window back to game?
C - the same with Contract window, can second press hide this window?
P - User profile. Already works, but not mentioned in the list

Market - the shortcuts bellow already work, but so far not in the list
+ and - on numeric keyboard increases or decreases amount of goods to buy or sell
SHIFT + Arrow Left or Right changes the amount of goods for selling or buying to minimum/maximum

Bar
G shortcut does not work. But what works is the Space bar

Would it be possible to create another shortcut for the Continue button to read a longer text like visible on a picture below?

This shortcut is already in the game, it's the right square bracket ].
As to the other shortcuts, I missed some indeed and others will be added gradually. Thanks for the suggestion :thumbsup
