    hi i am having some issues with moving along local axis as apposed to the world axis

    im making a jet/spaceship move

    Ship.localRotation = Quaternion.Euler(pitch, 0, roll);
    Ship.localPosition = Ship.localPosition + new Vector3(0, 0, Speed * Time.deltaTime);

    the problem is when i tilt the jet it continues moving along the world axis same issue with the pitch when i bank the ship and pull up to turn it just rotates on the world axis :/

    im not sure what im doing wrong

    The local position is in relation to the parent of your Ship.
    You are adding a vector which is in world coordinates.
    transform.forward is a vector (0, 0, 1)
    Try using:

    Ship.localPosition += Ship.forward * Speed * Time.deltaTime;
