Billions of Years Ago

There are a lot of shortcut keys to make playing the game faster and easier. We’ll start with those:

N No or “reject”

Down Arrow Scroll camera down
Up Arrow Scroll camera up
Left Arrow Scroll camera left
Right Arrow Scroll camera right

While the shortcut keys aren’t necessary for gameplay, they exist in order to make your vast galaxies and sprawling battles easier to manage. A few other things you should know are:

  • To move your ships, click on them to highlight them. Then, right click on the hex you want them to travel to.
  • To view your planet’s surface, double-click on the planet.
  • To place structures, select the type of building from the menu on the right. Click on the hex you’d like to build on, then double click to place the structure.
  • If you have a mouse wheel, you can use it to zoom in and out.
