I thought of something to possibly make entering commands on the battlefield a little easier, but not too easy.

What about hot-keys for commands like:
[a]=attack
[t]=target
[w]=way-point
[s]=status
ect.

Maybe even have the ability to assign your units to hot-keys like:
[1]=Command Unit
[2]=...
ect.
Of course that might make it too easy to enter commands but, just a thought.


Another Idea I had was when you are setting a way-point a dialog box could follow your mouse, either follow the move or pop up on the actual click, that will tell you how many turns it will take to get there.

This same idea could go for targeting ... a box could pop up saying how probable a hit is on the selected target.

As I always say ... More information is always better ... This could even be an ability or a mod.

I like this idea, I think it should be looked into in the future.

Here's two more hot-keys that I would definitely like.

One to remove the event log screen and another to remove to the chat screen.

Wouldn't it be nice just to hit [Esc] and everything that's in the view disappears? Chat screen, event screen, any sub menus, cancel any way-point or target selection ...

i like:

[1]select comand meka
[2]select next meka
[3]...

[A]target
[S]attack
[D]waypoint
[F]status

or any other combo you can use 1 hand with while the other uses the mouse

QWER would work well too
