View Full Version : Feature Request - Distinct Hotkeys for Maps

I realize this is a rather trivial request, and certainly low priority, but having separate hotkeys for the galaxy map and system maps would be awesome. It's easy enough to click the button on the map screen that switches them over, but I'm a junkie for hotkeys. (i.e. 'm' opens up current system map and 'n' opens up galaxy map)

I think i've read Shadow will make Tab to rotate between maps.

Awesome! Sorry for wasting virtual space.

Tab already goes back and forth between the maps.

For me, the part that's annoying is that since I need to consult my map and switch between the 2 maps so much, I tend to press tab also when I'm not in the map screen and turn off the minimap accidentally. The problem may be that one key is overloaded to do too many things, including switching between map submodes. I think the best solution may indeed be to have M for map and G for galactic map.
