Just a preface, I’ve struggled between putting this in bug reports and here in suggestions, because the mechanic seems a bit unintentional.
Alright, I’ve only just gotten around to playing the alpha after being away for a while, and during my hiatus I played a lot of racing games. I’ve gotten sort of a feel for them, and after playing a few rounds of Accelerate on Pine Valley (and just now Bedzoom) I immediately noticed that the steering felt a little… different.
Now, to illustrate what I mean, it feels like at all times I’m moving forward, but I can strafe/turn left and right at the same time, versus travelling in the direction i point my kart.
Here’s a crappy illustration that I hope shows what I’m trying to say:
Steering like this sorta makes it feel like tyres are ineffective, and taking corners results in a lot of “tapping” inputs to make it move more like a curve, which I find myself doing even with analog inputs on my xbox controller.
I may be entirely in the wrong about this. Steering in Accelerate may actually turn out to be more like the left of the diagram, and the right is entirely non-factual. I have no idea.
