Ships are your central units of gameplay. You need them to discover new resources, transport items, or build and erase blocks or buildings. They can be commanded as RTS units on the map. Every ship can be designed and built by your own in the [[HowToPlay::ShipDesigner|Ship Designer]. Dependent on the blocks and modules of a ship, it has different capabilities. Ships with loading slots, also have their own item inventory each.
To select a ship, left-click on it. A circle around the ship will appear, such as a ship context menu displaying the health, capabilities, and the loaded items of the ship. You can move a selected ship by right-clicking an empty location in space.
