 You may need to use some of the Plank blocks you start with to reach this new platform, since it will be created in a place where it will not collide with other objects. Once you've managed to climb onto it you can put the base blocks down you need to run a ship. If you make any mistakes you can use the Wooden [[Mallet]] to destroy a block and simply pick it back up. If you accidentally damage a block while doing this you can use the appropriate repair tools to fix it([[Hammer]],​ [[Wrench]] and [[Blow Torch]]). You may need to use some of the Plank blocks you start with to reach this new platform, since it will be created in a place where it will not collide with other objects.

-You'll notice when standing on this newly created platform you now have a energy bar in the bottom right of the screen. This shows you the ships current Energy. Energy is used in the majority of the devices you can use on a ship. You can expand its energy pool and generation with various different machines, but for now the Energy Well will give you just enough to run two [[Battered Thrusters]]. These will allow the ship to move! However the heavier the ship, the more numerous or more powerful the thrusters you will need. But before you get the ship moving, you'll need to be able to steer it. If you check your inventory you'll see that you spawned with a [[Control Panel]]. This is a block you can use to steer the ship. Place it where you think best, then right click it to begin steering your ship. W and S(by default) will accelerate and decelerate, A and D will rotate the ship, finally Space and Control with ascend and descend the ship. There you have it, you are a sailor. ​+You'll notice when standing on this newly created platform you now have a energy bar in the bottom right of the screen. This shows you the ships current Energy.
