    Hey all – we’re marking this idea as started, as joystick locomotion was implemented in a previous software update. However, from the comments, it is clear that this idea has morphed a bit to include the specific request of strafing being included in the control scheme. I’ve updated the idea title to include the request for strafing controls. Thanks!

    The way movement currently works, you walk in the direction that you look. This is contrary to how we move in real life, of course, and is both confusing and difficult to work with, resulting in awkward and inaccurate control.

    We must have realistic movement control of our avatar as an option.

    I totally agree with this. I want full 3DOF free movement.

    1) Strafing while walking forward.
    2) De-couple the look-direction with the walking-direction.
    3) Flying mode.

    Thanks for the free movement in the new version, but it's only half of a solution.

    1) Moving in the direction that you're looking is bad.
    2) Strafing without the ability to turn is bad.

    I don't know who likes the current free movement modes, but I'm not one of those people. I want to move in the direction that I'm pushing the joystick, which is independent of the direction that I'm looking. I want to think of the joystick as a steering wheel, and think of the avatar as a car or a hovercraft, and I'm the driver.

    I also want to strafe while turning and moving. The current movement mode that allows strafing is restrictive and, frankly, very frustrating to use.

    In short, if Home is going to be a preeminent VR launch platform, then it needs to allow users to take full control of their avatars with absolute precision and no restrictions. Without full control, what could be an amazing experience in Home just turns into a frustrating exercise.
