Guides / Quickswitch hotkeys

Description

This page has been written by me to act as an example of how powerful hotkeys can be in Wurm. Users may take what I have here and copy it in its entirety or they can adapt it to their own needs. These commands no longer require the unstable client and as such many people seem to know nothing about them. Hopefully that will change now that the clients are merged.


There are so many actions in wurm that binding them all would take up most of the keyboard. Listed in the #Files section below are the commands needed to allow you to quickly switch between jobs at the press of a button. Imping your tools and need to chop some wood? Easy.


The system below revolves around the use of WSAD and the mouse as movement controls. Q and E are easy take and drop access. Tab is used to activate. This leaves X and C as our quickswitch hotkeys. If I am imping then these are repair and improve respectively, in mining they are prospect and mine respectively, etc. I also use the Shift as a modifier, but Z and V could be used aswell. To switch between them you simply press the relevent button. For example woodcutting is Shift-F1. When combined with a toolbelt and its number shortcuts it becomes simple and efficient.
