One of my old posts. Back in '09 someone was working on this. Was it dropped? Still think it's a good concept.
How about a hot key for assigning action aiming points? I almost always, 99.9% of the time, use all of my awailable action points for aiming purposes when I see a target, especially my snipers. So instead of right-clicking 40 or more action points, how about a hot key that would automaticly assign all the action point that the current slected merc has available? Something like shift right-click and you have your yellow crosshair on the target. And maybe another hot key combo for using exactly half your action point for aiming. This would be really welcome for all the machine gunners using auto fire. Thanks

From Zilpin: (Two years ago)

When turned on, right clicking causes the target crosshair to go to maximum aim, then reduce aim refine level from there.

To clarify, in the current system:
No clicks = no aiming
1 click = minimum aim
2 clicks = aim a little more...
3 clicks = aim a little more...
4 clicks = maximum aim, no indicator
5 clicks = maximum aim, yellow circle
more clicks = repeat

When the option is turned on:
No clicks = no aiming
1 click = maximum aim, yellow circle
2 clicks = aim a little less...
3 clicks = aim a little less...
4 clicks = minimum aiming
more clicks = repeat

If you typically are either shooting without aiming, or doing max aim, then this is for you.


Additionally, working on something similar for full-auto weapons right-click behavior.
Both are options in the Preferences menu, and turned off by default.

If you have a mousewheel available, it's very easy and very fast to adjust aiming to your liking. So from my POV it's not worth the effort of coding new/other shortcuts.

I have a mousewheel. It's located on my mouse. Didn't think of using it. Feel like a n00b. . .Thanks
