Changing interaction modes with the mouse scroll

Post by weroli »

Just a quick idea of a mod that will allow the player to change their interaction mode through the mouse wheel instead of keys, or changing the selection of modes with one key. Might make it a little bit easier to play, or at least more convenient.

Welcome to the forums, weroli!

There has been discussions before about how interaction modes could almost be removed, say

Just in case it gives you even more ideas about how to handle the question...

I really like this idea, and I am pretty sure scroll wheel does nothing when playing game at the HUD. Should it even be considered as a core thing?

Great idea, maybe also have it so you can set it to holding CTRL/ALT/SHFT as you scroll (to leave natural mouse wheel movement to other bindings).
