    Default Just bought it, completely lost

    I just picked this up for XB1 and have no clue what I'm doing. I racked up a bunch of fines the first time I tried to leave the starting station and left it where I was sort of floating around in space.

    Are there any pages or sites that help out newbs? I tried the tutorials but it didn't seem to help much.

    Outfit the sidewinder with 2 extra shield generators this helps alot against attacks until you have enough coin to upgrade, which wont take long.

    There are multiple step delivery(got to a then b then c get paid at d) missions that are easy as and pay big enough to get a new ship quickly. Once you can jump 10+ light years its alot more quicker.

    I reset the game or died five or six time before i settled in to the pilots seat and got the routine down.

    OK thanks for that. I did accept the jobs I was allowed to but I'm not sure how to navigate to get to them.

    Not too sure about the Xbox, but PC theres a link to the galaxy map in the mission desciption, open that up and there will be an icon showing where the job is.

    There's a lot to take in and learn in Elite Dangerous. This guide How To: Getting Started in Elite Dangerous helped me early on but I have read and watched many more since as I have needed to expand on my current knowledge.

    *EDIT* A few key ones I thought worth mentioning also:
    EDDB is highly recommended for finding your way around the galaxy. It can help locate stations with the ship types/fittings you are after and many other things. Well worth getting used to.

    The sooner you start on engineering the better - makes a huge difference to a ship. Inara has a great rundown on them and the mods they can do (commodity requirements are currently removed). It's also a place you can look into player factions.

    Coriolis is a ship building site. Very good way to test a build will work (eg have enough power to run everything). It has support for recording engineering mod details for modules too which I find essential now. I found out about a utility EDMC that will upload your current ship's details (when logged in at a station) to the builder. Saves a ton of typing - especially with mods.
