I would like to make controls for a spaceship but I would like it to fly more like a spaceship than the standard vehicle coding. Does anyone know if it's possible to set a vehicle to rotate without forward movement? Something like that would probably be sufficient.
Ideally, I would like the controls to be...
Up (Forward Thrust)
Left <---- (Rotate Ship Left) (Rotate Ship Right) ---> Right
Down (Reverse Thrust)
The ship also having inertia and continuing to move in the same direction even while rotated to a different direction when the thrust is off would also be super cool.
An example of this mechanic is used in the game "Starsector" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RecflKfP828
If anyone knows how to make this work and has a few minutes to share I would really appreciate it.
