Objects and buildings can be used with keystrokes instead of clicking on them. The keys are enclosed in square brackets (e.g. [G] for gathering wood from a tree).

To use hotkeys you must minimize the chat window by pressing Enter. Then position the mouse pointer over the object or building and press the key on the keyboard.


  • For Flax and Bricks you can toggle the hotkeys via Self -> Options -> One-click and related.
  • Via Self -> Options -> Chat-related you can toggle that minimized chat channels are still visible while using hotkeys so you can keep watching.
