You don't have to go anywhere to leave Sol, you just have to make sure that you have:

  1. a hyperdrive (you should by default),
  2. that you have the right kind of fuel for the hyperdrive (Hydrogen for normal, or military fuel for mulitary drive),
  3. that you have chosen a destination star system in the system select screen,
    1. press F2,
    2. use arrow keys to move highlight around or click on a star to pick it,
    3. the selected system will be listed on the left-hand side of the screen.
  4. once you're flying just press F7 or click the jump icon on the control panel (bottom-right)

You can still enter hyperspace whilst in atmosphere at the moment, when that is fixed then you will probably have to do something more complex but that's in the future 😉

 

Hope that helps,

Andy

Glad you figured it out 🙂

The UI is in a constant state of overhaul but an ingame tutorial would probably be helpful to I guess.
