    augmented reality & hot-bar toggle

    With TAB now just being augmented reality on/off toggle, I feel there should see something to indicate that it is on. a little symbol, light, sound, voice, or small tint/color change.

    (I use blue light filter app f.lux and I think some of it setting options would be fitting.)



    Iím having a little trouble getting use to the new construction UI, and was thing that with TAB being augmented reality on/off toggle; to me it seems it would be more user friendly if Q was a hot-bar construction/survival toggle.

    I may be missing something but to get the construction hot-bar I have to press B twice.

    ... And to get back to the survival hotbar again I have to open and close the inventory. Are we missing something here? This doesn't seem to reduce the number of keypresses imho.

    I must admit that I feel like pressing more buttons now then in the old setup.
    One thing I find rather annoying (on top of the hotbar being selected by I or B) is connecting electricity between switches and tools.
    Because every time when I press connect on a switch from the radial menu, the build vision turns on, halting my game and then continues with a certain degree of lag.
    If I want to stop connecting electricity, I need to press the Build or inventory button to stop connecting.

    Which basically means I have to press a button twice to stop connecting electricity (once, opening one of these menu's and again to close it)
    Why on earth would someone spent all his time in life being a little bit creative, when you can go all the way?

    actually you just need to right click to get out of power connect mode

    Sweet! I did not know that, I have been using Q.

    Question: I know Q will switch “build-hot-bar” to “survival-hot-bar”, but what to best way to switch “survival-hot-bar” to “build-hot-bar”?

    I have been doing B twice, but there should be a better way.
