I am not saying make flight 3D, but up and down are a necessity
We need to be able to LOCK our camera into 3rd person chase for dog fighting with cameras I had to bind reset camera to fire just to get something half-reasonable.
Tab selecting enemies needs to ignore mines and torps or at least have a separate button for that function or a toggle.. if my computer cant figure out the difference I am certain my bridge officer doing the targeting does know the difference...
Give me an option to clone my settings to another character... resting everything takes forever...
So that's it my wish list of 4 things that make the game way better none of which horribly break balance and which I feel are all realistic changes
There is an option to ignore 'destructable objects' in the Options menu. It's under the 'Controls' tab and it's the 'Never auto target objects' option.
As for the 90-degree axis, I'm with you. Escort pilots definitely need that range of flight movement. If the devs are hesitant to enable that for everyone, why not make it one of the bonus features of escorts, or make an increase in vertical axis part of Evasive Maneuvers, something like that? That way, everyone's not doing it all the time but it's available when needed. Just tossing ideas out there.
