When you un-bottle your ship, you’ll be teleported to it. When you dock your ship, you’ll still be on your ship but there will be a deboarding sigil on the ship’s deck. Stand on the deboarding sigil and press “x” to teleport to the nearby dock.
Once you appear on a dock, there will be a boarding sigil to get back to your ship.
There are bound to be a lot of ships at the dock and we’ve made it easy for you to locate yours. When your ship is docked, a dockside banner will be placed next to the boarding sigil adjacent to your ship. The banner will have your chosen sail emblem on it.
Note that you can visit other docked ships as a Visitor. So there may be sigils for other ships besides yours, but the name of the ship will appear when you stand on the sigil and you’ll see their banner too. Passengers can run around on a ship and ride along with the ship until such time as the ship enters a private or restricted zone, at which point they will be kicked off and returned to their last Life Fountain.
