sikbok is Triumph considering changing the mouse control (or adding an option) so that we can select with left and attack with left ?

I'm getting used to right clicking but would love the option as well!

We've messed around with several control schemes. This is the one that worked best.
There's some subtle stuff that can go wrong if we implement what you suggest. So, it's not a matter of just rebinding.

I assume you are suggesting the scheme where right does everything and left deselects everything?

In our experience, the current control scheme takes some getting used to - about a week - but is the most efficient click-wise when playing.

Actually left does everything and right deselect; but i would be happy with just select/[move/attack] with the left. It is PIA to click one button and then immediately click the other button and most of TBS games I play work left->left.

I think the control scheme works great. Except for the middle mouse button to rotate (in the tactical battles). If you could (additionally) hold down the shift key or something to rotate, that would be great.

While the mouse controls can certainly be gotten used to, it's screwing me all up, playing an AoWSM PBEM turn now. I keep right clicking when I should left click, or left clicking when I should right click.

The mouse clicking is not something that bothers me, but the target area sometimes becomes difficult to resolve, like it is not big enough. Also if you could set an orientation for viewing battles with default parameters you set would be nice.

Maybe change that you don't autoselect the units in a city when you click on an event in the event chain ?

I think an option to bring back the AoW1/2/SM control scheme would be a good thing, for those who got used to the way it works in the previous games, as well as those who still play them.

There are still new games that use the left click to issue orders - Warlock 2 for example.
