Trouble with everything
Is anyone else having issues with docking to a spacestation, raising your shields, inventory key, or anything else? I'm loving what i'm doing so far, but these few things are frustrating me lol any help?

As this is an Early Access game, most of those functions are not fully implemented yet. Space Station docking should just take you back to the shipyard screen for now, though I have seen some reports it's not working at all.

Shields should be active when your kinetic field is on (i.e. your speed is limited (You should start with your kinetic field on). I don't know what kind of effect they have on damage ATM.

I don't think Inventory is implemented in any way yet, though I beleive the devs are working on a first pass at that system soon.

Hopefully the early access state doesn't discourage you too much, it's coming along, and I think this will turn into a fine game once the systems become more developed.

The game is in early access and not everything is done.

Sometimes docking doesn't work. For the moment, it only puts you back into the shipyard. Later on you will have a special interface for stations.

When shield are on, they reduce the damage you take and let a certain % go through them and hit a random module on your ship (For now)

No inventory yet.

So are the shields on automatically? Everytime I hit the key, my ship moves faster lol. I've pressed every button thinking it may be another key but nothing. I know the game is a work in progress, I wish I know what works and what doesn't. I appreciate the help :)

When the Kinetic Field is on (the shield) you will move "slower" because the way shield works is by slowing down projectiles (and yourself) when you turn if off, you go back into newtonian flights which is more realistic and allows you to continue to accelerate as long as you have thrust.
