In X Rebirth, what is the key I can use to target the nearest enemy? I can't seem to find it in the control settings.

  • Have you tried Shift+T? – kotekzot Nov 15 '13 at 13:35
  • @kotekzot yea, that's the first thing I tried, doesn't seem to do anything. – l I Nov 15 '13 at 13:45

UPDATE: Patch 1.24 (2014-02-04) added new functions:

Manual target control with keys for target nearest crosshair, closest enemy and next/previous target. Further improvements planned.

Closest enemy can be selected by Shift+E, object near target reticle can be selected with Shift+F with default key bindings.

Outdated answer:

There is no in-game button for it at the moment, Egosoft promised to make it future patches.

But there is mod Targeting UI Extension now with External Camera.

Currently (this will change soon), Rebirth has no good way of targeting enemy ships. This mod, extends the UI by adding a targeting menu with keyboard selectable commands.

In addition, one of the commands will trigger an external camera view of the selected target. The duration of the full-screen view is 5 seconds and can be repeated for extended viewing.

At the moment, there is unfortunately no such setting in the game.

We gonna have to wait for EGOSOFT to put it in.

  • @MrUniverse i'm willing to give them some time to sort this out, but yea, so far its super annoying. For instance, why does my ship speed drop to 0 when I turn to the side to pull up a sector map? – l I Nov 15 '13 at 22:46
  • The devs on the forums have confirmed that it will be put in asap. I am gonna update when it happened. – user57112 Nov 15 '13 at 22:46
