I was able to take all of the items out of the storage container, but now it looks like I need to find some kind of fuel to power my trip to the surface of the planet.

enter image description here

How do I get out of this room?

  • Fuel is used to fly to different planets, it is not needed to power the teleport.

    It still never ceases to amuse me how many new Starbound players can't figure out how to escape their spaceship.

  • Dude. I had this exact same problem the first time I played. I think they've made it a little more obvious than it was back in the day. Before I'm pretty sure you had to stand on the pad (which isn't obviously a teleportation pad) and push a button without prompt. It's weird to have a combination "mouse hover + keyboard button press" be something you just guess to do. Of course that was back when teleporting would just respawn you back in your ship 4/5 times you tried to go down to the surface.

You have two options:

  • walk on top of the blue round (square in 2D) teleporter to the left and then press E while hovering your mouse over it, or
  • click the down arrow (V) in the corner while standing anywhere in the ship.

Click the "beam down" button. It is located directly above the button with an ! on it. This works for beta versions and 1.0

    Again, your answer adds nothing worthwhile and is extremely late. Commented Aug 26, 2016 at 14:22
