Ship goes nowhere.
Hi,

So I built what I thought looked like a great capital ship and added engines and weapons etc. Chose a pleasing color scheme and added subsystems etc and launched.

I turn up the engines to max and.....

and....

and...

nothing. The engines are clearly "on" but are not moving my ship at all.

Also I keep getting messages pop up in the lower left corner, something about reinforcments have arrived however there is only one tiny ship that just keeps circling around my ship and I can't even target it, hail it, nothing.

I'm sure I'm doing it all wrong, I must be else the forums would be in a huge uproar, but for the life of me can't seem to figure out what I'm doing or have done wrong during the build process.

DId you put engine subsystems into the engine modules?
This is commonly the overlooked step. Open up the guide and check out the section on subsystems.

Did you forgot to install sensors and engine subsystems? Do you have reactor power?

And in Kinetic Void there is very little to show that your ship is moving - when you increase the thrust does the speedometer change?

Of course... That's exactly what I did wrong.

Thanks
