    List of Hotkeys / Shortcut Keys

    I had tried searching around for a list of the hotkeys but didn't find anything so I went ahead and made a table with em.

    I'll include it below but I also posted it on the Wikia:

    While the formatting of the table isn't excellent I provided links at the bottom of the page to the original screenshots and Excel spreadsheets I used. Hope this helps anyone that was looking for this information like I was. I also hope they add some of the great features being talked about in the "Feedback: Key-mapping and Shortcuts" thread. Cheers.

    Thanks those of you have added hot keys not on the list, I'll try to add them here if/when I visit. If you know of a hotkey not listed here it would be great if you could provide some info on it because I'm a pretty new player and may not know what it does. The post below mine for example, "you forgot alt+c" - that's great to know but I have no idea what alt+c does, even tried it a few places to no effect.

    And while I love seeing discussion in a thread of mine, those of you interested in suggesting changes and additions might have your suggestions most throughly reviewed if posted in this thread: "Feedback: Key-mapping and Shortcuts"

    Re: List of Hotkeys / Shortcut Keys

    The only "find"-hotkey that I would want to use except for "find storehouse" would be "find armory" (I can't always remember where I build them and they look a little bit too much like houses). 

    Could there be an implementation of this hotkey please?

    Re: List of Hotkeys / Shortcut Keys

    I disagree I use lots of find hotkeys, as long as  you have 1 tc/stable/rax/range you can use find keys rather then control groups

    Re: List of Hotkeys / Shortcut Keys

    Ok well I don't and that is not my point anyway. The point is there needs to be a find armory hotkey.

    Re: List of Hotkeys / Shortcut Keys

    Yeah we've been asking for a hotkey to that building to be added for ages.  As far as the list goes you can change your hotkeys to virtually anything you want (although you can't bind hotkeys to your mouse scroll wheel)

    Re: List of Hotkeys / Shortcut Keys

    there is one hotley i would like the developers to introduce to this list so that players can change it,  "R" (reply button for chat. Its already there in the game, but there is no mention of this in hotkey section).


    Some players(like me) use "T" for tc, so it's very annoying when you hit "R" instead of "T"
