The Spaceship is acquired by finding it out on the world. It is represented by a "W" tile on the map.
Here, the player is presented with 3 options:
Reinforcing the Hull requires 1 Alien Alloy. For each level of reinforcement, the player's ship can permanently take 1 hit from space debris while navigating Space.
Upgrading the Engine requires 1 Alien Alloy. For each upgrade, the player's ship can permanently maneuver faster while navigating Space.
Choosing to Lift Off will place the player in Space and allow them to navigate using the WASD or arrow keys. Being struck by too much debris will force the player back to prepare the Old Starship, and the Lift Off button will have a cooldown timer.
