Mouse steering in vehichles - spesifically helicopters.
New, WishlistPublic


My problem is that when I'm in a vehicle, im not able to use my mouse to steer. I can only use my mouse to look around as if I - without this problem - would doubletap "ALT" for. This is espesially problematic when I'm flying a helicopter partly because your aim depends on the general posistioning of the vehicle and the mouse provide better control than the keyboard.

I don't really know what this means. Sorry.

But if it means; how to solve the problem, I would probably say that you can - in addition to solve the obvious "glitch" - add a feature in the controls menu in the settings where you can choose what should be the default freelook settings for each kind of vehicle.

Additional Information

The interesting thing about this issue is that there was no such issue in the early alpha. But i don't know wether this problem regards only me or if others have the same problem but, since i see people flying helicopters so smoothly online as if they where using a mouse to do so, i assume that this is my problem specifically.

This situation is also the same for cars and such, but since i like to have freelook in cars I won't call that a problem.

I also didn't know how to get in touch with the developers about this issue, but this was the first place I came across so i figured i'd give it a try. Please help.

You have enabled "vehicle freelook" in the settings.

Thanks. Maybe I didn't see it.
