Hi, I am trying to make a simple 3d character controller script, that allows me to walk the character around in 4 directions with cursor keys while facing the walking direction. This I managed to do already, but now I want to make it smoother, so that instead of snapping straight into the direction, the chracter would first smoothly turn and then start walking.

here's what I have so far:

this kind of works but somehow if I walk away from center of screen it starts looking into wrong direction.. how to fix this, where I am doing wrong?

I don't know what you want to do with it, but I think it would work better if you would use move() in fixed process for moving. Than you could rotate only the mesh with rotate().

For anyone landing here working through this problem in Godot 3 look at Vecto3 linear_interpolation for a good place to start

quick sudo example:

var new_position = direction * speed
var character_acceleration = 5
velocity = velocity.linear_interpolate(new_position , character_acceleration * delta)
