I'm currently using the mouse/keyboard combo to fly. How do I lock the camera on my plane's forward view instead of having the camera view float around my plane during aerial maneuvers?

 

Every time I turn using the A & D buttons, my view shows my plane image turning in the selected direction but the camera view is still pointing in the direction the plane was heading before turning. I would like to lock the view so that it's always looking forward over the top of my plane. I've seen this is possible from forum posts previous to 2017 but can't find the setting(s) anywhere on the Controls tab sections or the Graphics tab. I've even looked under the Advanced Settings on the General tab.

there used to be an option for vector control but it was removed because it was unpopular. like the rest of 1.9.

Be sure to check your logic privileges before posting on the forum.

Isn't it right mouse button? Check in settings under free camera. It's normally locked to the rear of the plane.

'Fraid not. Right Mouse Button activates the free camera that rotates in all directions. I'm looking for the setting that forces the camera to always look forward into a plane's direction of travel regardless of aerial maneuvering and it has apparently been removed from the game. Ah, well. I'll adapt.
