So it cost 50 plutonium to use launch thrusters but if you land somewhere were the ship is supposed to like a dock, or those light up node things its free to take off.

is there an easy way to touch down on a dock though? like in starbases if you go in the light it'll automatically pull you in, can you just run ito the docking bay?

I've found when using the docking bay you can access both your ship and exosuite inventory via the selling terminal.

I love these PSAs :)

Call for a landing anywhere near a pad and it will put you down on it.

The easiest way that I found was to go slow and try to aim your courser at the point, a little white triangle thing will appear meaning you will land in the spot

I've found that sometimes it can be finicky in deciding when to let you land on the pad itself. I've had the best luck with actually rolling upside down so that I can look "up" and gauge when I'm just about to fly over the pad before hitting square. Same with the small tractor beam pods in places that don't have landing pads.

using the brake can help as well (L2)....since it'll make sure your going as slow as possible. That and inverting yourself makes it easy to land on them.

Not always. There have been several times where I've landed right next to the pad instead.
