Summary0022787: Improved default keyboard shortcuts
DescriptionThe current default keyboard shortcuts aren't very usable. For example it's "p" for the planet tab. Except P is as far as possible from the left hand on a QWERTY, and AIWars is a mouse driven game so...

I'd also suggest using the Function keys for things. F5 for instance is usually quick-save. It's a debug dialog of some kind in AIWars, which was very surprising (that such a prime key was a debug dialog; not that it wasn't autosave).
TagsNo tags attached.

Not all keyboards have easily used function keys.

Just rebind the keys to whatever you want.

I know I can rebind them, I was simply suggesting improved defaults. Probably too late for AIWar2, but something for the next game.

They were changed to those because people specifically wanted it.

Fair enough. Odd though given they're scattered all over the keyboard.
