So... This isnt just like a minecraft in space( well it is but it has more than that other than just blocks )
Starmade is a space exploration/building/fighting game, on which you start with a ship core, 6 power generators (which produce power) 6 thrusters(which let you move), A weapons computer and 20 Cannons(AMCs) and some credits(money)

When you start playing on On singleplayer or a server, you usually spawn on the coords 2 2 2 (which ill explain later) AKA spawn, default starting credits are 25k(25.000 or 25,000 depending on where you live) and with the stuff i mentioned above.

Making a ship:

With the items you start with, you can make a starter ship, to place the ship core(AKA where you enter ship) press X, and then name it, it says you cant rename it, but you can actually do it, then get inside the ship core by aiming on it, and being close, and then click r on it, and start placing stuff, but before you go, if you are still near spawn shop, click b when you are near it, go to ship shop tab, scroll down and buy some shield capacitator and recharge blocks and then place them on your ship and i reccomend you to fly away from spawn as soon as you can!

Making Money
The basic money making "trick" is to mine asteroids on astronaut mode(outside ship core) and then going to a shop(if you are on multiplayer dont go to spawn shop) and then sell your stuff to get some credits, then equip your ship with more stuff, then buy a build block(general section of shop) and then try to find a space station, and when you find one, put the build block on it, then enter it and hold ctrl, set X Y and Z to 10, put Remove Mode with a checkmark and hold ctrl and start removing the hull and glass!
When you are done you can go to another shop( dont go to spawn shop either) and sell the scrap, it's not worth a lot, but you can sell lots of it!

So... To open navigation you click n, there you can see things near you on a 5km range(rarely you can see stuff 10km from you) and that way you can go to a nearby shop without flying blind, at the top of the navigation section, theres a coordinates thing, on which you can enter coords(eg. 2 2 2) and then a glowing marker will show up, follow it and then after some travelling you should be there!

Every server has some factions, to check faction info click h, and then go to either personal subtab, faction subtab, or faction hub subtab
The major factions are,but not limited to:
The Calderon Republic, first lead by TwoNiner a year ago and now lead by Leanson
The Vaygr Empire, Lead by zorozeene
The Tartaran Empire, lead by Incap(founder) and Nauvran(official leader)
Starfleet, lead by therimmer96
The Thryn, lead by Azereiah and Jaaskinal(i think)

All of those ones are found on the EE(Elwyn Eternity) server which is the #2 on the rankings.

Saving/Cataloging ships
So probably you will loose a ship but you want to buy it again, to save it, you click I,N, or H and then at the bottom left of the tabs it says catalog, click on it, and you should see some buttons and some subtabs, go to the first subtab and then click on the Create New entry button, and name it, and then click on Save to local and name it too(preferably the same)
To buy a ship, go to first subtab and then click on the name, and then click on buy, then you will get a blueprint item, fill it with the items needed and you can spawn it in!(you can change the SP buy mode from blocks to credits if you want on the server.cfg)

Going faster through the galaxy
So after some playing, you will probably want to go faster than 75m/s(it's displayed as km/h) and you have 2 options:
If its singleplayer, go to the server.cfg and adjust the max speed

Or you can also get a jumpdrive.
Jumpdrives are what they sound like, you buy a jumpdrive computer(around 30k credits each) and some modules depending on the size of the ship, the game recommends that you get a ship made of 5% jumpdrives, the more the better, when you are done you can start charging it up by holding the Left mouse button, set a destination like i explained earlier, and start jumping!

Making Gates
So after some playing you get rich and stuff and want to be even faster!
Well guess what? You can with jumpgates!

To make a jumpgate you will need 2 stations with their own power capacity(more power capacity means it can transport larger ships) and power regen.

Then you should place down a gate computer on the top, and then the modules and make sure they connect on a 2D Loop(the warpgate computer doesn't count as a module on this)

If you have any questions post them here, i have been playing this for like 6-7 months and im quite good at it(this is the reason of why i left for a while)

Oooh, there's a Mac version... I'll try it later.

About how big is it?
Nevermind, about 70MB download, and 120MB once it's unpacked.

While playing the tutorial I shot the space station a bit too much, so it retaliated.
Then my ship exploded and I had trouble getting stuff to make another, so I temporarily gave up... :P

Yeah :sisi:
Tip:Dont buy those crappy Isanths, even though they first look like god ships, after a while they suck.
