First of all. i want to thank the genius who programmed this software.
It is SUPERB.

Second i wondered if it is possible to implement a looking option.What i mean with this is as fallows.
When the camera moves forward i like to have the ability to look sideways without changing my forward momentum. To have more special awareness. Maybe the use of track ir could be also implemented to control looking sideways.

Hello dahunn, and welcome to the forum. Please take a moment to read the forum rules.

You can look independent of direction of motion using the "spacecraft" movement mode ([2] key). Set your direction and velocity as you like, then look around in any direction you choose. Stop rotation using [X] or NumPad5, and stop motion with [Z]. You may change velocity as you like with the normal WASDRF keys.

WASDRF and arrow keys affect movement, numpad affects rotation (all this information is in the SpaceEngine readme file).

The answer is yes, as I said in my first reply.

Hi dahunn, The "free look" you're suggesting was also addressed by me in this thread here and here. It's something Spaceengineer will implement into the game for the spaceships eventually, for now the only trade-off for you is use the "spacecraft" mode as HarbingerDawn has already mentioned.

I don't think that SpaceEngineer has any plans to add TrackIR functionality.

If you're asking what it is, look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TrackIR
