Can't Fly Me Pirate Ship Mateys
Build me a pirate vessel, but after setting sail she goes nowhere. What be wrong with her? I thought WASD was to navigate and R was to cast off?

I suspect that you haven't placed engine subsystems in your engines. When in the shipyard, right click on your engine modules and select "Subsystems". It can be a bit daunting, but just read through all the choices and pick out what's right for you. Usually, I use Engine3 and Compound Plating for protection.

In other words....

Ahoy matey! On these seas, strappin' a sail on yer mast isn't enough! Ye must go back to the shipyard and customise yer sails! Also be sure to stuff a reactor in your hull somewhere! It makes the wind that powers yer space sails!

Arr, matey, I hope ye not be neglecting the adding of engine and other so-called "subsystems" within the modules. If ye be forgettin this, wieghing anchor in the deep black of space will give you mighty trouble.

Arrrr! Ye may wish to be considerin' Boosters rather than Engines - gives ye more sail power on the same-size o' vessel fer chasin' down that SpaceSpain gold...

The wave be spillin' some great wisdom! But best ye be rememberin' that whilst boosters be boastin ' the greatest wind for ye sails, a few o' them engine subsystems give better spirits to the pitch, yaw and roll of yer rudder! If ye be mounting multiple engines, ye might want to condier manuverin' as well as cast off.
