The Missing Keyboard Commands
« on: April 27, 2016, 12:06:19 PM »
Currently, this is a popular FAQ. We've every intention to add additional keyboard commands (and list them in-game!) especially as we finalize more features in game. For now though, here's the 'secret' hotkey list.

Starmap:
WASD / Directional Keys to scroll
[SHIFT] to speed up directional scroll
[SPACE] to speed time/cancel speed time
[ESC] to open options menu

Starbase:
WASD / Directional Keys to scroll
[SHIFT] to speed up directional scroll
[ESC] to return to starmap

Combat:
A-D/Left-Right to select powers
W-S/ Up-Down to select target
[Enter] to confirm power selection/target selection

Events/Dialogues:
[1] to select option 1
[2] to select option 2
[3] to select option 3 (etc.)
[Enter]/[Space] to advance dialogue

Hope this helps!

UPDATE: Hello explorers! We've made some tweaks and ensured confirmity with v0.2.0.0. They'll be more additions with future updates!

Thanks for the mapping! I had figured out that the space bar controlled Pausing (just like Interstellaria :) ), but not what the rest of the controls were. Maybe I accidentally hit A while going to the Starmap to trigger a keeps-scrolling-to-the-left-and-can't-select-planet bug.

please, please, change the order of options for colonies/mines/etc.!  "Evacuate Colony" should be #2 and "Depart" should be #1; i am continually anxious that i will accidentally evacuate a colony by clicking too fast.

The in-game Hotkeys tab is bugged. The last three options are invalid, and the second to last should say Notifications, not Description.

Oh, thank you! We'll get cracking on that.
