    When sitting in any seat, in first person view, you can only look up and down. In third person view, the view is locked directly behind the player character.

    Yup, me too. I was hoping the 'stable' branch would not get this kind of stuff.

    Can confirm. Looking around is broken.

    for me the problem ocurs only in singleplayer, on a DS it was working fine.
    "In cockpit" view is only movable from top to down, "outside" view is not movable.

    confirmed - enabling space master and pressing F6 for "returning" to ego perspective fixed problem for me, however.

    Confirming.... singleplayer "stable" branch..

    I haven't played SE for a while so I was kind of excited to try it out today after stable finally got an update and then found a handful of new bugs in about 10 minutes then gave up.

    sigh.

    On another notice: If I'm controlling a ship via the remote control block, suddenly third person works as usually.

    Also I can confirm the F8 -> F6 workaround.


    EDIT: Okay, it's a bit more complex:
    - If I just enter a cockpit (or a passenger seat), I can only look up and down in 1st person and not look around at all in 3rd person
    - If I change to spectator (F8) and back to the character (F6) again, everything works fine
    - I I now take control of a remote control block on the grid, I can look around freely in 3rd person while 1st person is still broken. If however, I did fix the movement beforehand by changing in spectator and back again into character view looking will now be broken in 3rd person but work in 1st person. Same applies if I do it in reverse order.


    Hope that helps anyone.

    I can also confirm that look-around is broken as described. This is in version 01_172_01, in the so-called "stable" branch.
    Keen devs, could you please, please, PLEASE stop pushing new, untested code to the stable branch? Either that, or just dump the stable/dev thing entirely so we can stop hoping our game might be playable from one day to the next.

    Bug Confirmed. We really need a HOT FIX for this ASAP! The UESC Comp is about to be judged, and my entry depends on being able to look around with the ALT key.

    Same problems here, described work around does not work. Neither does resetting keys, setting default etc.
    Most frustrating.

    Same issue, I can also add that going into 3rd person view, exiting to the menu and reloading the game fixes the problem temporarily.

    Found a way to fix the camera issue. Open /Alt+F10 Menu/ Enable Space Master/ Press F8/ Press F6/ Try to look around. Works only(Permanently). Hotfix Need!!!!!! :)

    Ahhh so i am not the only person having issues with this bug since the last update of stable branch. I need to try that workaround.

    Same observation here. Reloading lets me get panning back in third person view of ship, but it never works once I'm in a control seat or a cockpit. It also seems to break when I enter a control seat/cockpit. Once in those two seats I'm restricted to up down. Real bummer too because I like to sit in a control seat in my base and use the panning in third or first person to let me view the pistons I'm controlling from it.
