I would like a new feature introduced.
At the moment when you orbit something, the direction that your ship goes seems to be random. One time the orbit circle can be horizontal, the next it can be vertical.
I would like to see the option to select the direction, by way of keeping the orbit button down and using your mouse scroll wheel to change the placement of the orbit circle. You could choose to make it horizontal or vertical or anything in between.
To take it a step further, you could even move the entire circle so that you could orbit a place in space without having to actually orbit an object.
I have made a crude drawing to illustrate what I mean. Click the link below to view.
Please ask questions if I haven’t made it clear or you would like to know specifics.
