Ergonomic Hotkeys
9 items
Description
Interface Tweaks Version 1.3
This mod adds visible hotkeys to most actions that have hotkeys, replaces the disband squad button with a trash can so you stop disbanding squads on accident, makes the difference between selected and deselected UI icons more obvious, and many other minor improvements that should make the UI easier to use and understand.
Other Versions of this Mod
This mod is part of a collection of mods that each include the same UI tweaks, but with some differences. These include versions that don't include hotkey hints, and versions that have a custom set of easier to use hotkeys compatible with many keyboard layouts.
Browse the whole collection to find the mod that best suits your needs!
Known Issues
  • If you change any hotkeys, the displayed hotkeys will be inaccurate. You are free to alter the mod to make it work with your hotkeys, if you have the patience.
  • The hotkeys for the screw press and soapmaker's workshop are unchanged, and the hotkey hints are not shown. This is a bug in the base game that I cannot fix.
  • There is no way to put different graphics on the buttons for the magma and non-magma furnaces, so both keys are listed.
  • The hotkeys are also listed when you select a placed building, though you can think of this as a feature if you'd like.

Maybe you could add a better icon for the burrow suspend button (green active/red deactivated)? I know there are mods out there that do just that but i think it'll be better to have this in an all-in-one solution like this one. Thanks!

No, the original df hotkeys cannot be reimplemented. That would require reorganizing the menus, which a mod cannot do.

Is there a way you can add a mod for the original DF hotkeys?

This mod should be below all vanilla mods.

Great idea, but any reason you can think of for the key display doesn't show up? I create new worlds with the mod installed at the highest priority, embark in new world, and nothing. In the mods list it says installed as well.

I cannot add new buttons, no matter how much I'd like to

The thing existing UI lacks a lot is an "inspect button" against the soldier in the squad menu. I always have to look for them via equip submenu.
Can you add this one please in upcoming versions?
