The first thing I tried to do when starting the game up is rebind ALT so it wouldn’t pan the camera, came here to post that ALT can’t be rebound and that just feels so bad Limiting keybinds these days just feels bad - I can rebind alt to an entirely new key third party app but I absolutely shouldn’t have to.
Yeah. Really dissappointing. For me especially mouse hotkeys feels really bad as it would’ve been so easy to implement. Also simple hotkeys as “select all TC’s” is missing. Many people (including me) were complaining about this during the closed beta. They have not listened. Also couldnt find a word from the devs about this. So far I’m glad that I got the game pass for 1€ instead of buying the game. Will buy it later when those simple things have been implemented.
I agree with allowing more liberty for players to change their hotkeys. Coming from AoE2, it’s a bit of a leap from my usual hotkeys.
I say make a “Classic” hotkey setup that will feel more familiar to older players and allow all possible customisation, including the use of other external button devices/controllers (important for many within the disability community I might add).
Big one for me is the use of mouse buttons and shift actions. My side mouse buttons are used for idle villager and TC, it’s annoying to have to use mouse to click for new villager or reach over with left hand to other side of the keyboard…
Thankyou for the hard work and making the game, appreciate it’s a lot of work, and good luck with the updates, God speed.
And yes, shout out to increasing zoom capabilities.
How do the hotkeying to various buildings work? Do you still have to select all buildings of a type and then select buildings within that group or can you go ‘straight to a barracks’ or ‘straight to a dock’?
I am mostly ok with the hotkeys (getting used to the F keys), with a couple annoying exceptions, but they really should have all the functionality that already exists for AoE2 and 3. Oh also should add camera hotkeys like SC while they’re at it.
+1 here. Mouse hotkeys were reported like 2-3 months ago. And i doubt that professional players etc didn’t reported it even earlier as well. Not sure why such simple thing is still not implemented in game.
