Quote from: Nasikabatrachus on May 03, 2014, 03:05:27 AMI have a couple keyboard shortcut suggestions.1. I love making time lapse series of my progress in building/colonizing/etc. type games, but in RimWorld making these can be challenging because it's hard to get perfectly consistent camera zoom levels and fields of view over time.I suggest adding the ability to define camera warp points assigned to e.g. the function keys. This also has more practical uses.An example of how I might use such a thing:F1: Local awarenes: A view centered on my colony's most important areas, zoomed in enough that I can see unit counts on individual stacks of resources F2: Situational awareness: A high view, not centered on the colony, which would allow me to search the map quickly when there are running events I'd like to keep track of (fights between factions on the map, etc). F3: A view suitable for showing broad changes in the structure of my colony over time.2. I also suggest using the number keys for building categories in the Architect menu. The advantages of particular shortcuts aren't that great when you're switching between clicking options and pressing the keyboard; I often just click, even when there's a keyboard shortcut, just because I'm already clicking anyway.

It is not a wise play style with the current solar flare mechanic...Some researchable technology to prevent or warn of orbital raider drops right on your head (e.g. a no drop zone or a drop warning radar). Even if you totally dig into the mountain, you have to go outside for trading. Every once in a while there is an orbital drop of twice your number in bad guys right on top of your head with no warning. Any colonists outside just die right away. There is no mechanic or smart way of play to save them (at least that I have found; maybe I am missing something and just being clueless). This seems a bit too arbitrary to me. I hate having to load a saved game (feels like cheating) just because half my guys decided to step outside for the wrong hour. Now, I don�t mind the horde from the edge of the map that overwhelms me. That just means my defenses sucked, I needed better choke points, etc. But, just having them drop on my head with no chance for half my colony to survive seems wrong somehow.
