Starship reverse & mouse steering
 
Ok so my problem is: I steer my starship with my mouse. I want my starship facing the enemy even when im in reverse, but with mouse look, your starship starts turning in the opposite direction. Thats fine for revesing a car into a parking slot, BUT NOT for starship steering that want to blast something to pieces with their front.

-> Please disable the "Reverse = look behind you" feature or make it optional.

Agreed. When ever I try reversing , ships always turns the wrong way in relation to my target. Reverse these setting please.

Agreed, either change it altogether or at least give an option to change it.

Reverse on the ship works the same way on your RL car.

While backing up, and you turn the wheel to the left, the front of the vehicle moves to the right.

This is why, when you are backing up with a trailer attached, you turn the wheel from the bottom for the direction you want the trailer to go.

It needs to be optional or not changed at all.

But my starship doesnt have a wheel? :) For some of us its an annoying "feature" ingame. Obviously there are also players who think its usefull. Please it an toggleable option in the controls menu.

Btw to elaborate and bump: Keyboard-steering (AWSD) already stays the same when you reverse (A always turns your front to the left, forward or reverse - no matter what).

reverse shoudl steer the same as forward.

but then again.. what do you expect from a comapny that makes 2d controls in a 3d enviroment.


ROFL :D

I totally agree with this.

I would like it to be changed, but I can understand people like it the way it is.
