Lift Click Allows for Shift in How Technology is Used

    Greetings everyone,

    As an RTS player who is used to left-clicking, I have noticed that the Shift command does not work when using left-click with villagers.

    For example, if I want my villagers to move from gathering boars to gathering sheep, or to build a house and then go back to gather wood, it doesn’t work.

    However, I have noticed that this command oddly enough works when the resources are not in my line of sight or are under fog.

    I have attached three pictures to demonstrate what I mean.

    As you can see from the images, I am able to shift-click my villager to move them to a different location to gather a resource if it is out of vision, but if it is in my line of sight, I cannot seem to make it work.

    It feels like I am selecting the bush separately.

    This is a significant issue for me as it causes a lot of idle time.

    Any assistance in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.


    I think you should use right click, not left click.

    Left click is usually for looking at things. (Exceptions are when you use a specific type of move command, like patrol, attack move, etc.

    You can use left or right click for those.)

    Right click is for doing things.


    >im an Old School Rts Players and used to left clicking,

    I highly recommend getting used to AoE’s system 😛

    As opposed to C&C (and I think Warcraft), AoE 1 (and ofc 2) use both mouse buttons.

    Left selects units, right gives out orders


    Fast help if possible please <3,

    much love


    In the new update, they are changing the mechanic regarding shift queuing.
