Landing has changed from 2.4 to 2.5. In Alpha 2.5 the Landing Mode key: “N” now automatically puts the ship into Precision mode and landing pads appear with colours to guide you. The recommended landing pad (nearest to you and available) will show in Green while unavailable pads will show in Red. When you get close to the landing pad HOLD “N” to initiate the automatic landing. It is still possible to manually land like before.
