camera focus on selected entity?

Is there a hotkey for focusing the 3D camera on the currently-selected entity?

Right now you can bring up the Entity List (J), and then click the entity in the list to focus the camera. I was wondering if there was a hotkey to focus the camera on the currently-selected entity, without having to bring up the Entity List. Thanks!

You can always use Ctrl+MMB in orthoview to move the camera to that position, using the height of your most recent selection. It helps to use Ctrl+Tab beforehand so that orthoview is centered on your selection.

I'm about 85% sure there's a hotkey combination that does exactly this, but would have to look into the Keybinds settings or DR user documentation to confirm.

Doesn't Ctrl Tab also switch the view mode of the orthoview from top to side to front?

Yes it does but it also centers the view on the selected entity, is the way I always used to do what Brendon asked. 

Btw Brendon loved the latest trailer of Skin Deep, add a smile during the entire thing, in this early stage is already shaping off to be a cool and funny game!

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
