can you DO anything yet?
Outside of building, can you DO anything yet?

My ship has literally gone no where once assembled. I aim at a target, cannot fly there, am i missing something?

Make sure you are putting subsystems inside the physical parts. Without putting an engine inside the engine modules, your ship will have no thrust, and will not be able to move.

The ship is moving. No visuals show movement. Im not moving toward, or away, from anything, despite the fact that my ships speed is over 800. Im talking planets, other ships, anything at all. can you discover ANYTHING at this point?

Ah. Okay, so they've tried to have fairly realistic solar system distances, and that means travelling in newtonian physics will take a loooooooooonnnnnnnngggggg time. For travel between planet size bodies, you'll want to use the Micro Warp drive (shift+t to enter and exit). It doen't have any automation though, so you have to eyeball it and cover remaining distance with newtonian physics. You can also jump to ither star systems by double clikcing them in the map (M), though it just insta-teleports you at the moment.

There are stations that you can dock in (all it does right now is return you to the shipyard tho), and there are NPC ships that exist, both enemy and friendly. They tend to spawn between planets for me. Really the only interaction at the moment with them is combat though. They are working on getting the first pass at the mission framework together, hopefully soon.

some kind of flight plan would be helpful, it's not funny when you try to reach something and you keep going too far ahead, the turn back and miss again, turn back and... you see the point....

Something is already planned.

I agree, I wish I had known it had been in early development before I purchased it. I would have still purchased the game, I would have just expected early stages of development.

The game has amazing potential, i'm glad I got in on it when I did.

Its pretty neat already as it is.
