Hi I just joined the game the other day. I have joined a faction and received a job as part of my role, however I wish to leave the planet to practice space flight. It says every time i try to ascend that there is a shield stopping me, or something along the lines of that. If anyone can help me out in anyway it would be greatly appreciated :)
If you want to bring a ship through the planetary shields you need permission from the one controlling the planet. Click the name of the planet in the 'Location' section of your sidebar and you will get to the info page for that planet, with clickable names to get you directly to the DM screen.
