@Sargas: The 8 move behaviour is incompatible with standard rotation in the spaceship plugin behaviour. Even if rotation is turned off; essentially moving left always moves the player left on the screen regardless of what direction they are facing, this means they cannot strafe left in relation to their current angle, they can only move left across the screen.
@D4n13l: I am happy to use events, I figured i would have to for this custom movement, however I cannot workout what events will create a thruster style movement going left and right, based ont he current angle of the ship. The ones you describe are obvious and allow you to move down and turn.. But those abilities I have already done. What I need is to be able to allow the ship to strafe left and right based on their current angle and as indicated in my original post I dont know how to do that.
Can anyone out there please help etermine how to create custom movement to strafe left and right in combination with spaceship style behaviours.
