Recently i noticed my ships will turn on their own. No autopilot. No mods. Only have discord installed.

Any ideas.

Yes, if you sail when zoomed in the game will take over as if on auto pilot and steer your ship away from obstacles such as islands, other ships, etc. This is to get you back on course and back in the direction you should be headed since players can't see as well when zoomed in. The game is operating as it should but something to be aware of.

Yeah, as Splash said, there is a feature to avoid terrain, this helps new players in navigating, you can disable it (I did), but for now you might be better with it.

There a also tactical beaching.

Thanks guys. I don't really play in zoom. I mean i zoom towards a ship but will use free look to steer. Zoom to fire then free look and steer. 

But i'll start paying a bit more attention to it. Maybe i have been without noticing it.

It also works without being zoomed in.  

As often as I tend to find undiscovered islands, I leave it enabled.

Go into "settings" and turn the auto-pilot to "off". Stay out of binocular sight unless you're shooting. Pay more attention to the mini-map.

Got it. Thanks.

Yeah, the mini-map. Like my drunk uncle. God i hate looking at him, but damn he's useful.
