How to make player not only rotate, but move in it's rotation direction? 2

I have a playercontroller 2d in top-down view game, where the players ship follows the cursor.
I have already done that my ship rotates to cursor with a small latency
code below shows how it was done

var rotation_speed = PI * 1.5 # PI = 180 degrees

func _look_at_mouse(delta):
    var v = get_global_mouse_position() - global_position
    var angle = v.angle()
    var r = global_rotation
    var angle_delta = rotation_speed * delta
    angle = lerp_angle(r, angle + 1.57, 1.0)
    angle = clamp(angle, r - angle_delta, r + angle_delta)
    global_rotation = angle

But now I need my ship not only rotate with latency, but also to move not exactly to cursor global position, but to it’s position with the same interpolation / latency as the rotation of the ship. I have no idea how to do it, tried many things. Code below represents my move function:

func _move_to_mouse(delta):
    if position.distance_to(get_global_mouse_position()) > stop_distance:
        var direction = get_global_mouse_position() - position
        var normalized_direction = direction.normalized()
        var direction_distance = direction.length()
        move_and_slide(normalized_direction * max(move_speed, direction_distance))

P.S. I copied this question from same one, because there was no proper answer. Or I just don’t understand it. Sorry, if that’s my bad.

You can rotate vectors by sprites rotation amount. So take in vector in “neutral direction” (be it right or up depending on sprite) and rotate.

var speed = Vector2(max(move_speed, direction_distance), 0)
speed = speed.rotated(global_rotation)
