That could be a cool feature which would improve pvp tactics as well if used as a feature on both bots and human players (usually referred to as free look I believe). For example in Arma 3 or DayZ, you can hold down a button and then move your mouse to change the direction of your head/view but still be running in direction prior to holding down said button. This resulted in the ability to scan entryways, windows etc. but still run past it without losing momentum. I greatly appreciated that feature and would like to see it in games like Sandstorm.
In Sandstorm on the other hand, your view is locked in the moving direction, so that your character moves with it, also resulting in being unnatural detectable by other players as the human hunter brain is so sensitive to movement. Implemented in bots as well would again demand more work I would guess (maybe some debugging with bots wagging their head like chickens=D )
Just googled it, and other players have requested it as well in human players.
