Whenever I perform any action that involves building or planning something, the act of left clicking changes its function (generally to mark that I am indeed building something in the said location). After I set one of those things, though, my cursor is still replaced with the new command. I don't need more than one fishing building, or gathering building, right now.

How do I "clear" my cursor so that it goes back to letting me select things to inspect them?

To revert to Inspect, simply press the Right Mouse Button.

Generally, RMB is used to cancel any cursor activity in Banished.

  • You have to right click twice to free the cursor from the previous activity if you were just marking areas for resource removal.

  • @Lumberjack I have noticed that there are some commands that require double cancelling, yes. I haven't quite figured out what causes that, though.

  • Commands that select a variable area (crops, roads, harvesting tool) require you to press RMB twice to get out of it if you were highlighting something.
