    The + and – can be used to zoom in and out of the map, respectively.

    The Orders button can be used to bring up the Orders menu.
    When a unit is active, use the Orders menu to Fortify the unit, build a road, plow, etc.
    If the active unit is standing on a colony, click “Enter colony” to go to the Colony screen.

    The tiny wheels to the left and right can be used to bring up the steering wheel on the left or right side. The steering is an 8-way D-pad that can be used to navigate your unit around the map.
    Click a second time on the tiny steering wheel to hide the big one.

    What’s “nightly build”?


    ID KFA, “nightly build” contains the latest changes. I may have messed something up, but it’s there if you want to try it.
