I have no clue how to unload materials aboard my ship to a warehouse. Do I need to be in a certain location? Do I need to be assigned the warehouse? What are the steps I need to follow in order to accomplish this task? Thank you.
You have to be on the ground above the top left square of the warehouse. You have to be operator of the warehouse in order to set the amounts of each material that are allowed in the warehouse itself, but I dont THINK you have to be operator to put stuff in it.
Then simply go to your cockpit and go to the materials tab, and then select the material you want, and press unload. There will then be a choice of buildings to put the materials in, and hopefully the warehouse you want will appear here (if not, you need to operator of the warehouse). Then simply press unload.
