Yes, that's the same camera limitation I talked about earlier. The mod actually tries to get an updated camera position on every game tick, but the game only updates the camera position when its standing still. That means that the mod only knows where the camera is when the camera is standing still for some time. So unfortunately, there's really nothing I can do to minimize this delay time because the game itself was programmed this way.
I'm glad you liked the mod and I'm aware of the things you mentioned. Unfortunately, The Sims 4 has a lot of limitations when it comes to scripting the camera. The game makes it unable to accurately track down the camera movement, and it only updates the camera position when its standing still. That's why its not possible right now to change the direction your Sim is walking towards on-the-fly based on the camera rotation.
I'm also aware that the animation may seem a bit choppy at times while on third person mode. This is due to the rate at which the game updates the current zone scripting. The actual game engine was not meant to have real time controls like this, and I wasn't able to find a workaround for that.
If these limitations bothers you in any way, I recommend that you give the first-person camera mode a try (Shift + Tab). The controls make it easier to freely rotate your Sim, and the movement may actually be a bit smoother.
Anyway, I hope this helped. Thanks for the feedback!
As stated on the mod page: "The Sims 4 Direct Controls is built on the patch v1.52.100 (June 2019) and doesn't work in previous versions of the game."
Game version 188.8.131.520 is unsupported. The mod will not work on this version. Update your game via Origin.
If any of your mods is throwing exceptions, that means there's something very wrong and that may impact other mods aswell. Make sure you updated all your mods to the current version of the game, and remove all the ones that the creators didn't update. This list from SimsVip shows a lot of the mods that are compatible, and the ones that are broken by the new patch.
Also, as stated in the mod page, Direct Controls is currently conflicting with TwistedMexi's mod that lets you use freecam while in build mode. Do you happen to have that one installed in your game?
As much as I would like to help you, unfortunately, the keys are hard-coded events in The Sims 4. Which means that they are basically baked into the core of the game. So making a key bindings setting is not possible. The whole game doesn't have a key bindings setting because of that.
