    Getting a bit more complicated…

    I keep confusing myself regarding the flight direction and world orientation… adding landmarks for reference, but it might be hard to get this playable without dropping into chase cam. Maybe there’s a chance for some novel control switch-ups though. I’m thinking point-the-mouse steering rather than keys for roll and tilt of the vehicle. That would add a global sense of overview for the player, without keeping track of exactly how the plane is turned. Not sure it would be flexible enough for what I want though. I’ll try something else first. It’s not actually supposed to be an airplane, so screen-space directional input might work out as more intuitive, if the camera follows along to some degree.
