I have to land on HARTSFIELD PLANT from POTRITI for my 1st mission but the plant is moving really fast due to potriti's orbit, and i do not have any gravity and i can not use my landing pad. Do you have an exeplenation or even a solution?

PS:it is my first day playing the game.

  • I'm not sure what you are trying to ask. Are you having trouble getting out of SuperCruise to get into the station's gravity?

  • probably, oh yes i get it now thanks to your question, we have to make a "little space jump" to get out of space to get near the stations even if we are close in the space but i do not know how to do it

As you fly to the station in Supercruise, wait until your destination is about 6 seconds left before impact. Then pull your throttle back to the blue region. Once you do so, the game will automatically slow you down to reach the target at a safe speed.

NOTE: This does not mean you will land in 6 seconds. Once you have more experience there are more aggressive (and fun) ways to approach faster, however these risk overshooting your target and having to do it all over again.
