Little things

Polishing is always fun. The last two days I have spent time making the game more accessible with the keyboard. As of now, you can start the game, go through the setup options and manipulate all of the options on the main screen strictly through the keyboard, if you fish. For example, you can select and deploy fleets and transports to other systems, set up relocation points, and adjust a colony’s spending sliders all through the keyboard. All of the other screens should be easy to enable as well, with the except of the Ship Design screen.

It’s an easily overlook feature, yet it allows for easy gameplay on a laptop when a mouse isn’t always available. The little things are always nice to have.
