Holding mouse buttons

Post by defacto »

Hi,
holding mouse buttons should have an effect. E. g. when picking up or putting down resources with the right mouse button many items should be processed. By now you have to click for each item.

Also I noticed that putting down a single item when clicking the right mouse button doesn't work (anymore).

Sorry, but I read that several times now and I didn't understand exactly what you mean. LMB and RMB have already their use. The tutorial mission explains the usage of CTRL- and SHIFT-keys more or less well.

For the second: Yes.

Sorry, I will try to make it clearer.
1. Open a chest.
2. Right click on an item in the chest. -> You will pick up one item.
3. Now hold the right mouse button. -> You will only pick up one item again.

My wish is that holding the right mouse button will pick up multiple items.

Ah. Understood. Yes could make sense, keeping mouse pressed, so it selects in faster steps an item.

How about that: when keep pressing the mouse, while moving it right, the selected amount is increased with the mouse-movement. Left decreases it again. Moving it up can make this even faster (10, 20, 40 ...) ...

Hmm. Sounds interesting. I think moving it right/left to increase/decrease the selection could be enough when you're limited to the stack size of an item.
