You'll need to either belly flop on the surface and stop (the rocket will automatically stand up when you come to a stop)
18:29 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

or you can hold Q and spacebar when you get about 100 or 200 meters above the surface
18:29 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

that will put you in a hover state
18:30 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

kill the engine with del key
18:30 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

While holding Q and Spacebar, tilt the rocket up 90 degrees or at the stars
18:30 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

Release Q and and Spacebar and watch your altitude
18:30 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

And speed
18:31 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

tap Q and spacebar as needed to keep speed around 10 or 20
18:31 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

if you do it right you will gently-ish land

18:35 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

I hope that helps. So the tick is to pick a speed that works for you.
18:36 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

Launch from your home planet, I would take it slow, get to a speed like 300 and kill the engines ( Del )
18:36 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

then Hold Q andpoint to your moon
18:37 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

Q kills lateral movement so it will prevent gravitational bodies from dragging you or altering your course.
18:38 UTC · Shores of Hazeron
Speaker

Once you get gravity drive, you don't need to Hold Q anymore. The rest of the flight controls are the same.
