  • For the first and the most important step, you will have to redirect the power from the other parts of your ship into the grav drive. You will be able to do this from the HUD at the bottom-left corner of the screen while you are piloting a ship.
  • You are going to need at least a single power level in order to perform the Grav Jump. A greater power level is going to result in a quicker charge time.

Route

  • Routes are the pathways through which you travel between the planets and the solar systems. A red line is going to indicate an unexplored route and you will not be able to perform a Grav Jump through such routes.
  • You will need to execute smaller Grav Jumps to the closer planets in a linear manner in order to explore all the routes first. Once explored, the routes are going to turn white and only then will you be able to carry out the Grav Jump without a problem.

Jump Range

  • Upgrade your grav drive from the ship modifier in order to get a longer Jump Range. Players with the ‘Spaced’ trait should invest in the Astrodynamics skill in order to get help in this department as well.
