small hotkey suggestion

Let us use modifier keys for all of the possible binds.  For example being able to use modifer + 1,2,3,4 to select exos should be possible.

I'm guessing that it's either this, or ability to bind to left/right-shit, ctrl etc, because obviously you can't do both. Seems that the developers preferred the latter option, which makes sense seeing how useful these are for displaying area of attack, etc

Hotkeying Exos is a bit of an issue for me.

Now normally I am a big fan of hotkeys, and really have nothing against it in principle, however, the fact that it takes  a turn to swap means hitting the wrong key can have really really dire consequences.

I know there are ways around that (like not using the hotkeys), but it may have been part of the consideration in why they aren't there.

On the other hand, I would like more hotkeys in the customization screen, as well as making RMB the same as ESC for quickly backing out of screens.  The main issue I have with the UI right now is that the location (left hand side) of the icons is very far away from the center of the screen, meaning a lot of mousing in some situations where you are stealthing/swaping/whatevering.

Then again I've not been playing for that long so I will no doubt be missing some things which make it easier, but honestly, I'd prefer to see the 4 exos on the bottom of the screen, you can leave the rest of the stuff on the left.

Alternatively I wonder just how possible/easy it is to make screen layouts customizable for the player :)
