Steering/ helicopter roll using a controller/joystick is weaker than with keyboard
Assigned, HighPublic

Description

When trying to steer a vehicle or roll the helicopter with a controller or flight stick, the cap kicks in notably sooner that trying to do the same with a button on the keyboard.
It happens no matter which axis is assigned to steering.

I've noticed this as well using a CH Fighterstick. Roll and Pitch seem a bit 'soft' compared to the Keyboard controls.

Same here with, with latest DEV branch. Even though ingame settings for controllers show the axis maxed out at 100, when using the controller axis for steering, the wheels turn only 2/3 as much as with A/D keys on keyboard. Mapped the axis to Car Left / Car Right. Doesn't matter which joystick I use, happens on both a Logitech joystick and a console controller.

Issue has been resolved.

Yep, issue is still valid. Stick input is far less than with keyboard even on highest "sensitivity".

Soft for helo and hard roll for all Unsung jets! Iknow, it's a mod... but popular. I asked for 2 possible settings if possible...

please, fix this, after more than 7 years
helicopter/jet roll left/right (A/D) using a controller/joystick is much much weaker than with keyboard
it's not a wish for useless stuff and not low priority, since it's not working correctly and makes using joysticks/controllers a pain in the ass (vs. keyboard), partially defeating the support of joysticks/controllers
