[quote:1g1q8a1g]You want the player to move towards the mouse, but the player shouldn't turn towards the mouse?
[quote:1g1q8a1g]What if the mouse is not right in front of the player or even in the back of the player?
It's doesnt really matter when mouse will be, if you mean layers. But for comfort - mouse always have to be focused on one x-position. Like in FPS games, but despite FPS games - y-position will be changeable. I'm sure - Mouse Lock will help here.
[quote:1g1q8a1g]Should the player move backwards?
Yes, he should. As i said - there is button "S" for that. Player will just move backwards, left/right from mouse. There is no problem with that.
