  • To start up your grav jump, press Tab, and from the menu, open Starmap and select a different star system. At this point, you don’t need to worry about the enemy ship attacking you, as your game will be temporarily paused.
  • If you have invested enough power into your ship’s grav drive, the jump will start in a few moments.
