    steering boats with the mouse feels now more precise but it's now impossible to drive a boat only with the keyboard (e.g. doing a u-turn)

    +1 the response is pretty smooth and controls of cars are more fluid

    As I wrote, car controls did not change yet, only a visual indicator was added for them. Experimental new car controls will be present in the next beta.

    My impressions:

    I'm all for the new system! The advantage is that when you drive a curve (e.g. to the left), you don't need to steer back to the right if you want to go staight forward again. This is something that for me has been annoying as hell because driving with the mouse was very very complicated (and with the keyboard pretty dangerous because the keyboard input only knows 0 or 100%).

    This "point the target and the vehicle steers to get there" really is a great improvement (or should I say: a re-introduction) of driving! Looking forward to check out the cars!

    Yes, I agree!

    When you have moved the mouse to one side (let's say to the right) but then want to continue steering with the keyboard and press and hold the left key, the boat will begin turning left but after 2 seconds will go to the right again. It feels as the mouse steering still is "locked" and the keyboard input is useless - not sure how to discribe it... It's still improveable though.

    Me too, its a conspiracy I tell thee

    Overall the new handling of boats feels much better/smoother.

    Ha! Me three. The visual direction indicator for cars led me to steer with the mouse like I did for the boat, and made me think that there had been a steering change. Even without any changes, steering a car with the mouse is pretty cool!
