I recently got a new computer, and it is my first computer that can run java edition. When I go into creative mode and fly, after I stop holding W, I keep floating forward a couple more blocks. This is really annoying for when I am building and doing redstone, Is there a way I can turn this off?
The drifting and sliding in creative mode has always been an annoyance to me too. It's such a pain to deal with and we are not the only ones who feel the same way. It's a common complaint and I wish Mojang would add an option to turn off inertia. Your best bet would be to look for a flying mod as those usually let you stop immediately when removing your hand from the movement keys. They aren't all that common anymore (because Creative mode was introduced) but I'm sure there are still a few floating around.
