So, there already exists a list of keyboard shortcuts for Civ 5 Vanilla. By pressing buttons I even found some extra ones:

V - Advisors Screen
Alt+Q - Admit Defeat

I have also found some shortcuts for Gods & Kings:

Ctrl+E - Espionage Screen
Ctrl+P - Religion Screen

But I still haven't found the shortcuts for the new Brave New World options - specifically:

? - Culture Overview Screen
? - World Congress Screen
? - Trade Routes Screen
? - Show Trade Routes on map

Any idea on what they are?

  • Didn't F1-F12 bring up the various advisors in the old games?

  • F1-F12 still work, but they bring screens/advisors that were already present in Civ5 vanilla. But I haven't found any keys to bring up the new ones (new to BNW).

Well, I found the answer, and it's disappointing.

Basically, there are no shortcuts for the new BNW options. This is easy to check: shortcuts for Brave New World are coded in

\Sid Meier's Civilization V\assets\DLC\Expansion2\Gameplay\XML\Units\CIV5Controls.xml

which is exactly the same file as

\Sid Meier's Civilization V\assets\DLC\Expansion\Gameplay\XML\Units\CIV5Controls.xml

which contained the shortcuts for Gods & Kings. Maybe they'll fix it in an upcoming patch, or maybe someone will figure out how to mod these shortcuts... But it's very frustrating for now.

  • Let me reiterate what they've said: CIV5Controls.XML is practically the same between G&K as BNW. Checked via textdiff.com. When I read this at first, I thought onuryn meant they're stored identically rather than their contents being identical.

Here is the source code for keyboard shortcuts with DLC (which only adds shortcuts to Espionage Overview and Religion Overview (in G&K) as you've found). I've modified it for readability. Taken from \Sid Meier's Civilization V\assets\DLC\Expansion2\Gameplay\XML\Units\CIV5Controls.xml as onuryn mentioned. Several do nothing, such as SELECTYUNITTYPE, NEXTUNIT, and PREVUNIT.
