Tactical Mouse Controls

All unit actions, as in X-COM, are controlled with the mouse. UFO2000 uses the same controls as the original games with only minor differences:

  • right mouse click can be used to stop movement of a soldier
  • soldiers can't automatically open doors, so you need to use right mouse click behind the door to open it (just like in TFTD)
  • mouse wheel scrolls map levels up and down just like the ladder buttons on the control panel or the PgUp/PgDn keys

Left SHIFT details: Shows a box with squares for precise aiming as shown.

3 6 9 12
2 5 8 11
1 4 7 10

The order reflects the vertical disposition of the unit/object inside the target box: 1 corresponds to the lowest level of the square you're firing at, usually it is occupied with the floor, going upwards until 12, which is the highest level.
