If In doubt, use right click!

Right click > (Can't remember menu name!) - Probably under the tutorial mission title, warp to location. If in doubt, read the mission instructions (journal).

Exploration is Random. Random is Random... or is it?! http://docs.python.org/2/library/random.html

Have you accepted the mission (not just read it but also click the accept button helps).

Are you in the correct system (did AURA tell you to jump gates or did you do it yourself by accident).

If both are yes, you might have found a bug.

Hit F12 and create a petition (there should be a category called stuck) and CCP likely will reset the mission so you can try it again and maybe be more lucky this time.


---

Also, with the "collect your ship" mission:

It's in your starter system.

Right click and you can warp to a location

When you land there you will see a acceleration gate (x-mas tree shaped thing with blinking lights on it).

Right click it and select activate gate (you have to be within 2000m for it to activate).

You will get warped to a location where you will find your first rookie-ship. (Ibis for the Caldari, Velator for Amarr, Reaper for Minmatar, Gallente is unknown cause I hardly fly Gallente pilots).

Thanks. Yes Im sure I accepted the mission. Ive gone back in the tutorial a few times, following the instructions to the t..warping to the same place. AURA did not say to go through any gates, just warp to the secret location. Ive even tried moving up to all the gates listed and still nothing. I'll try what you say, perhaps a bug.

When you have a mission running (it's a very recent feature), you have the name of the mission appearing under the current system name, click on it and you can unfold a menu that allows you to:

  • Set Destination to the mission pocket
  • Set Destination to the agent home station
  • Warp to the mission pocket
  • Dock to the Agent home base

If you don't have that menu, you didn't accept the mission, if you have that menu it should be quite easy to reach the pocket, once there, the gate should appear in your overview, whether Aura told you or not, when there's an acceleration gate (different from jump gate), it's implied that you have to use it to follow through with the mission.
If you still don't find the ship, then something's really wrong and a petition might be needed for a reset of the mission.

I actually had trouble locating the ship, my first time. I warped to the location and didn't realize that little green square off in the distance was MY ship...lol

I right clicked on it going..."What's that?"What?

The pull down menu listed "board ship".Roll

Oh!...Right!..lol

It should also show up on your overview. You can right click it there as well.

It could be a problem of overview setting.
If you right-click on the tab of your overview, and then choose " overview setting", you can select what appears or not in your overview (because honestly it's very hard to visually find a small item such as a ship in space).
It's the first thing they should explain in these damn tutorials : to set your overview !

You would not have received the "warp to" prompt, had you not accepted the mission to start with.

It would seem this thread was created with different intention.

....silly me.
