Wow. That's quite an open ended question. The simple answer is that if you can take off and land without pancaking your ship then you're competent enough to play any part of the game.I picked this up ages ago and never got into it. I've got plenty time coming up to spend on the PS4 so may give it another whirl. Does anyone have a link to any decent guidance on how to make the transition away from noob to mildly competent?
Just remember to stay in Solo until you feel confident and even then don't go to Community Goals or Engineers in Open. Ever.
If you have any specific questions then feel free to ask on here and someone will jump in to help but there really is too much to this game to sum it all up in one post.
This should give you a good starting point.
There are loads more links here if you need them.
