For movement, I would recommend the opposite. I would 
suggest Vector movement. While it seems more complex,
I think that the end result is more intuitive than
with cinematic movement.

And if you tire of the Fleet Book designs, I have collected
quite a few at the Full Thrust Ship Registry (see URL below)
that you are welcome to use (both 2nd Edition designs and
Fleet Book style designs).
