Cursor over object display Key Bindings/Shortcut - Tool Tips

Post by leomate »

Like to add when hovering over objects/ windows with the cursor, a toggleable tool tip display will pop-up to show the Keyboard Bindings for that particular object in regards to the player and also what's in the players hand.

I found that coming back to the game I forgot many of the keys to action.
The game relies heavily on the keyboard and it caused a barrier to play the game again.


eg.
1) Hover over the Player character -
Tool Tip Displayed
Q: back/ clear
E: open Inventory
F: pick up
Left-Alt: Details

2) Over Inventory window
Tool Tip Displayed
Left Mouse: Pick up item
Mid mouse button: Filter
etc...

I feel like something like this would also help a newcomer. I've recently recommended this game to a friend and I've had a hard time getting him to start as he said "The game is too complicated and it's not helping me figure out what I want". I think this will help a bit in the on-boarding process. Maybe enable it by default for scenarios and then have it optional for free play games?
