For players starting in Lorville, this guide provides directions from the Lorville L-19 hab where you wake up, to Teasa Spaceport, where you can retrieve your ship to explore the rest of the 'Verse!
Before continuing, you can learn the basic movement and interaction controls over in the first section of the Getting Started in the 'Verse guide. You can also head back there for details on how to pilot your ship once the rendezvous is complete.
Check out Locations in Star Citizen to learn more about Lorville and the other major landing zones and spaceports.
From Hab to Ship
Leave your hab and look for the single elevator, opposite the window on the upper level of the double-story commons area. You will need to go down to the Ground Floor to get out of the L-19 habs building and into the city. Remember, the F key will let you interact with panels and other things!
Leave the building, turn left at the dumpsters and go up the steps.
Left again at the UEC shopfront.
Turning the corner, on your left you will be presented with the Metro Center, the primary station of the Lorville Rapid Transit System. Enter and follow the steps down to the lines. You will pass an area map on the left for if you wish to explore areas of the city not covered by this guide.
At the bottom of the steps, following the signs, turn right.
Then left and left again down more steps to the Spaceport Line.
This takes you down to the correct platform with the line on your left. Fortunately, missing the train is not too frustrating as they arrive frequently.
The lines form loops, so be sure to disembark at the first stop. A helpful sign hangs on the wall opposite the train doors.
Leaving the platform, head left through to the Customs Area.
Once through customs, you will be free to enter Teasa Spaceport. Head up the steps to the terminal.
At the top, you will find the Vehicle Retrieval Consoles to your left, just in front of the viewing window and waiting area. This is where you will call your ship to a landing pad!
Pay careful attention to the Landing Pad your ship is assigned to as you will need to select the associated option in the hangar elevators.
Head to the hangar elevators by passing to the right of New Deal.
There will be many elevators to choose from. Pick any, as they are all capable of reaching every hangar!
Each elevator is unmarked, so look out for the white double doors with the dual-button panel on the right.
Provided you have remembered your hangar number correctly, you should find your ship awaiting you when the elevator doors slide open.
