It's still better to have it the way in the OP for quickbinding. I use space for whatever I'm doing at the time and it'd be faster to do quickbind off the right-click menu than opening console and typing it out.

learn how it works and then ignore the guides suggestions for keys, because they are terrible.

Never quite understood why when I dig anything, the resource dug goes to inventory, but when I mine, shards go to pile.  I understand there is a key bind "dig to pile" but why not make similar actions uniform? I think that is one of the minor (and possibly major) frustrations for new players. Things just don't seem to make much sense with regard to how many of the mechanics work. 

No serious complaints on my end when saying that... I've learned to adjust to "wogic". :P 

I see the benefit to making the change that the OP suggests though.

Digging to pile as the standard is a massive QoL improvement, specially for newbies that still haven't learned/been shown the intricacies and possibilities of customizing keybinds.

 

We have that as default on sklotopolis.  World of difference.  And yes, I F1 keybind a lot.  

 

bind c dig

 

Nice and simple, straight to the pile.

What you consider laziness, others consider quality of life.  Sometimes I click the tile and use the button actions instead (which some players prefer). Why should I be forced to play with keybinds?

 

As a quality of life change, this would be awesome and makes far more sense than us filling our pockets with dirt shawshank redemption style.

Makes sense that it works the same way mining does in that you drop the dirt/rockshards on the ground by default.

just show both dig and dig to pile on the right click menu, just like it shows both drop and drop to pile. That makes the quickbinding easier.

Although I use keybinds for both actions I prefer that the standard "dig" action remains as it is. The reason for this is that with a dirt going into my inventory I can then drop it again to convert 4 tiles to dirt for planting crops or converting sand to dirt when doing a larger area, moving on to the next section and repeat. On the other hand dig_to_pile is always used when stationary in one position, so to have that one as the optional keybind as currently works best.
