bug: "hotbuild / build builders" only builds T1 facs

0

keybindings / hotbuild / build builders
this only builds / cycles through T1 factories. 😧

when i select a T2+ engy, i would expect it to build a T2+ support factory, not a simple T1.

in other cases the most advanced building the engineer can build is offered (first).

You can set up a different hotkey for higher level support factories. I wouldn't want one hotkey to cycle through every single level and type of factory available, would take far too long to be useful and it's far too common for me to use low level factories late game.

If you want this behavior however, you can probably change the hotkey values to mimic this.

i dont want one hotkey to cycle through every single level
i only need the highest level support factories.

I would also be interested in this:

Example with the same hotkey:

Select t1 eng -> cycle through t1 fabs
Select t2 eng -> cycle through t2 fabs
Select t3 eng -> cycle through t3 fabs

Then set up hotkeys to do that? I'm not seeing the issue and this definitely isn't a bug.

I don't think there's a way in the UI at least to accomplish this in a single hotkey, but you can have t1 factories on "w," t2 sup factories on "shift w," and t3 on "ctrl w" for example. There's not a native way to have the same hotkey do different things based on the level of the engineer selected as far as I know.

If you manage to get one hotkey for all support factories and t1 factories then the first ones that show up will be the highest level available to that engineer, which is close to what you want.

almost every hotbuild shortcut do this. taking into account the engy's level. the whole hotbuild stuff is not native to the game but the game's LUA scripting system is flexible and allows this kind of things.

Hotkeys for mass fabs, pgens, shields, and intel just add the highest available tier to the front of the queue for the hotkey. There is no example of a hotkey that only has the highest available version which is what it sounds like you want.

It should be possible to add the higher tier support factories to the factory hotkey either directly through the UI or through manually modifying the game prefs file.

Of course, we could just make different hotkeys for each fab. But three different hotkeys when we live in 2021 where it should easily be possible to do that with one key?

There are a ton of other needed hotkeys already and avoid unnecessarily hotkeys is probably a good way to aim for.
