hotkey for dynamite & for each outpost

I have a hotkey for walls and for solidify, why not one for dynamite?

Also I use F1 a lot to get back to base quickly, I think it would be useful with more hotkeys, such as F2 and so on for each additional outpost.

Scrolling with arrow keys also would be nice instead of having to right click spam.

I'll be back with more ideas.

Thanks for a good game.

The hotkey for dynamite is "W"! If you hover over the menu items, you'll see their price and hotkey in the tooltip. In recent builds, we have printed the hotkeys next to the button for clarity!

Hotkeys for outposts and scrolling with arrows are interesting ideas - we'll look into it!

Glad you like the game! :D

EDIT: Wrote that the hotkey for dynamite is "E", but it's "W"... silly me ^^'

Thanks

Dynamite hotkey makes it a different game =)

I have a counter-idea against having a hotkey for outposts. It gives the player more control but since the game is somewhat about not having control and dwarfs moving randomly, maybe it's not a good idea in the flavour of the game. I mean, I'd love to have it, but it could make the game easier in a bad way.

That is somtimes a hard trade off :)
