Could you please add in a simple fix that would allow both turning and strafing keys to be useable for space flight?

Kind regards

It's kinda funny actually that you bring this up and I never thought about it, but the word for what the turn keys should be doing is "yaw" but is instead a lateral side to side movement (in other words strafing) since there is no rotational turning other than a roll in space combat.
