Personally I'd love a third camera option "Rubberband cam" in which the camera is predominantly set to a "chase self" position set at a particular elevation directly behind your ship. But you can manually turn the cam to face a different direction, but "snaps" back to the "chase self" cam position. Making it useful for those of us with cannons.
Kind of like the default camera you get in the likes of WoW and other games.
I have a new reason for wanting a proper chase cam so i don't have to use the mouse... I can't use the mouse. Yesterday I went over the handlebars and smack onto my wrists. Now I have my left arm in a cast and my right in a sling.
Now I have 8 weeks of sick leave and really need this game to work with a proper chase cam so that I don't die of frustration (with the controls) or boredom (from not being able to play because the controls are so frustrating).
