Well you can have one shortcut for 'select all onscreen mobile land' and one for 'select all onscreen mobile navy'... just using normal techniques

I made shorcut for selecting land units without T3m arty :)

---------------
I have these shortcut:

Spoiler: show
['Select nearest t3(t1) scout'] = {
order = 1,
action = 'UI_SelectByCategory +nearest BUILTBYTIER3FACTORY AIR INTELLIGENCE',
category = 'Custom Keys'
},
['Select nearest idle t1 scout'] = {
order = 2,
action = 'UI_SelectByCategory +nearest +idle AIR SCOUT',
category = 'Custom Keys'
},
['Select nearest idle t3(t1) scout'] = {
order = 3,
action = 'UI_SelectByCategory +nearest +idle BUILTBYTIER3FACTORY AIR INTELLIGENCE',
category = 'Custom Keys'
},


I can anyone pls explain me why they work with AI, but not in multi. with other players? I have no idea

This thread needs a bump with a very handy little hotkey I created:

['Select all fighters'] = {
order = 2,
action = 'UI_SelectByCategory AIR HIGHALTAIR ANTIAIR TECH3, AIR HIGHALTAIR ANTIAIR TECH1, AIR HIGHALTAIR ANTIAIR TECH2 AEON',
category = 'Custom Keys'
},

Only selects all your ASF, Inties and Swift Winds. No fighterbombers and Ahwassa in your dogfights :).

Time to bump again! What is the lua syntax for something like "cycle by category" ie what is used for "cycling through idle engineers" etc? Like just guessing but something like UI_CycleByCategory seems feasible

Not possible without creating a custom mod. Probably possible.
