There is now a new area select page place thingy. Put simply, it works like such. On the title screen, after you press a key when "ExoEarth" is on the screen, the text disappears and you rotate the planet with the left and right arrow keys. A dot will appear on the world when a selectable area is in the middle of the screen. You then press space bar and you are whisked away to the area of your choice.
This feature will be in Build 004 - which will be available soon!
