I've heard from a few pilots on various ships who are struggling with the funky camera angles they end up with in space, hopefully this helps short term :)

this is freaking stupid... ya we needed a new camera system instead of space mob missions or whatever else.


And thanks for screwing up space mob hunting, I'll play more elite dangerous

is it just me or is the volume on that extremely low? Even with headphones on and my volume cranked I can barely hear it.

Love your voice, and thanks for the Info, I had a quick ride in my Starfinder and went WTF!* and warped to Caly to try and make sense of the new controls and then also went WTF!*… and proceeded to log out... I am sure we can get use to the new system but there is clearly a few un intended bugs at this point in time...

Thanks :ahh:

I'm starting to get used to it now, it's very "fluid" resulting in quicker manoeuvrability and fast reactions to what's around. But the compromise is motion sickness for those who suffer from it.

I think an "align camera" button would really help, saves the silly circles to get you back square with the ship.

Have you noticed clicking the middle button once will return the view to "Normal" but only!!!! if you do not select target mode first!

For me this just spins the camera back to the rear of the ship, but the ship is still angled.

I've been doing some more messing about with this today after the latest patch, and I can now get the camera to square up with the ship using V (camera mode) although oddly wont do it with middle mouse click for me!

It either requires a long press, or a double click depending if your toggled in or out :)


V will also "zoom out" the guns, so you can look around, but cant shoot from this mode.

Looked like you were flying just fine chasing that quad out of Cyrene earlier ;) I had actually commented to the gunners watching you that you seemed to have sussed the flying part.

It second nature to me now again thankfully! Left button spin, alt toggling, v works fine :)

Lol.. yes, and that's why it is so irritating. I actually LOVE the feel of the new camera/targeting system. It's great. Flying is not the problem.... it's the targeting that is now the problem. You should give it a whirl if you haven't, it's great fun now not being able to target something or shoot it.
