shift + right click = 1/2 craft all ..

Post by darksparks »

shift + right click = nothing..
shift + left click crafts all..
idea: shift + right click creates half of the amount shift + left click does...
so..
if shift + left click = +60 pipes
shift + right click = +30 pipes

that way i can cancel crafting +60 pipes..
then create 1/2 of that (+30 pipes) with shift + right click..
and another click to craft 1/2 of the remaining materials (+15 pipes)
to create +45 pipes 2 clicks. simple and faster then right click spam imho.

what do you all think ? =)

Not sure it would be mentally compatible with functions the right mouse button normally has.

I was actually thinking about this last night, could build a stack of 200 copper cables but only need 100. Had to right click to build 5 each time, then got confused because by the time I got to 100 a lot of cables were already built. This would be much simpler.

Well, it is rather compatible with the functions it has in Factorio (like - ctrl+right click takes half of entire chest, shift+right click takes half of a stack)

I would certainly use this feature as I often find my self right clicking to craft a lot since I don't often want to use up all of the resources I'm carrying in case I need to craft something else.

The problem with all this right shift left alt control right is for me, that I cannot remember it. It's just too many special function. Another more or less: Nice, but doesn't change the problem. ;)

There's a lot of things in this game that I forget or can't remember, doesn't mean they shouldn't be included in the game..

Ok, let's say it like so: I would admit to have many more functions, if there is a screen or window I can blend in to see a (quite schematic) keyboard with all the shortcuts on it.
When I press LMB in this screen, then it shows all the bounded functions to LMB plus all the possible modifier keys for LMB I can press; for example SHIFT and CONTROL. If I press then SHIFT-LMB it shows that function.
