I think a simple question: In TSRE you can move with the arrow keys. If you "float" at a certain height you move forward with the "arrow keys up". [OK].
If you look 45 degrees downwards as an example and you use the "arrow key up", you go down 45 degrees to the ground. ["OK"]

I searched for a way that you could stay at a certain height, look down 45 degrees and just move forward (so don't fall to the ground)

Until now I have not found this function, I am sure I look over it .... :blush2: But last weekend it suddenly worked ..... ????

You understand my question: which key (combination) can you turn this on or off?

Indeed, the period key (.) Is the hidden function. Thanks! :sign_thanks:

This is very handy, I no longer have to fly like a mosquito through the landscape ...... :)

Does it stay on until you do something? Several times I've found myself unable to raise or lower the camera and I had no idea how I got into that mode. Solution? Save, Exit, Start again.

If you press the period (.) key by mistake and get stuck in height control mode, just press it again. It's a simple toggle function

I can't help wondering how many features there are that we don't know about.
It's been a while since we've heard much from Goku. Maybe we're in for a surprise or two.
