Summary0000907: Hotkey suggestions for Thieves' Guild and Tavern
DescriptionThe main suggestion came from pHOMM in post on the forum ( [^]): 'G' to be coded as universal hotkey for opening Thieves' Guild.

G is indeed one of the few keys not used for other function in any of the H3 screens. So we could code it to open Thieve's Guild not only from Adventure Map, but from any other game window (same as it was done for the Marketplace window). The information in the Guild is of general need, same as Kingdom Overview, so there's no added value in having to open Town screen, then Tavern, only to get to it. This would save us a good deal of mouse clicks.

Alternately (or additionally), it could also be linked to CTRL+KingdomOverview button... However that may create confusion, as we already have in WoG a hotkey combination with that button for Mithril I believe.

* * *

I'd also like to propose 'T' for Tavern in Town screen. Sometimes it takes me a bit of time to distinguish the Tavern from other buildings in some towns, especially those which I don't play that often, or with pretty similar buildings. So this would come in handy. I know 'T' is currently associated with Marketplace, but that needs to change (see 0000216).

Additionally, once in Tavern, hitting 'T' again could further open Thieve's Guild. But that's really optional, especially if 'G' would be already implemented as per above.

Fixed in r2613.
* G will open thieves guild window if player owns at least one town with tavern
* T in castle window will open a tavern window (if available)

in tavern window both T and G hotkeys open thieves guild (though only the first one is bound to the button).

It works pretty much as said, except that G doesn't open Thieves Guild in Tavern window.

It's no big issue, only that players might get used to 'G' on the map, and might expect it to work in Town screen and/or Tavern as well.

Feel free to fix this, or just move it back to Resolved if it's not worth the effort. Just let me know, as I'm building the list of VCMI enhancements for Wiki, and this was one of them.

EDIT: I also have mixed feelings about "CTRL+T" opening Tavern in Town screen. On Adventure map it opens Trading Post, so it might be more practical if it opened Marketplace (well, same thing) in Town screen as well. Actually I thought it was even coded as such, so maybe it changed meanwhile?

It's time to say that the current version is final
