Unit Commands

During the command phase players can change the active command queue of each unit they control. Factories (e.g. vehicle plants), towers, laboratories and mobile units accept commands to execute during the following phases. Most structures and mobile units allow queueing up to 16 commands each.

Commands are typically issued via their hexagonal control buttons. More immediate are movement and attack commands issued by right-clicking anywhere. This feature is available to mobile units and towers. Use the shift key to queue up commands. With the exception of very few commands (e.g. placing a unit that has been completed by a vehicle plant), all commands are queued rather than executed immediately.

Units with empty command queues may end up doing nothing at all. Where appropriate these units will be considered idle. Only towers are able to fill their command queue on the fly if hostile targets are within safe attacking range.
