Can't move and rotate at same time

While its not really a bug it is something i find quite anoying.

Anytime i try to rotate my camera and move it starts rotating but stops moving…

Just wondering if this is a actual feature and if so why?

It was something that we originally did due to limitations in our camera system, but shouldn’t be too hard to overcome nowadays. I just need to take the time to sit down and refactor a bit of the camera code to make it work. Its something that I agree I that would be really cool to have, so I’ll make sure we have a ticket for it.


When use keyboard keys (qweasd) to control camera, if you press W the camera goes forward, if you press E (or Q) the camera rotate correctly, but if you press the two together, the behavior is strange, different than expected (at least compared to other games)

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Just combine rotate and movement camera keys (like EW, WQ)

Expected Results:
I really expect the sum of behaviors, if I press foward(W) and rotate(Q or E) the camera must move forward and rotate simultaneously

Actual Results:
Camera rotates towards the floor

Version Number and Mods in use:
No mods, using 0.22.0 release-737 (x64)

Yeah, this is an unfortunate side effect of how panning and rotation is handled internally. I would really like to be able to pan and rotate as well. There’s a whole bunch of additional camera work I would love to do :stuck_out_tongue:
