How to take over another ship?

Post by RagedDrew » Wed Sep 16, 2015 1:32 am

So our crew decided to try to take over another ship which went pretty well for our first attempted but when ever we took it over, our ship would turn hostile against us, so for a good 10 minutes or so of our Cpt jumping back and forth reclaiming the ships we just blew the other 1 up.

So my questions are, what were we doing wrong? Can you only own 1 ship at a time? I thought I read somewhere someone saying something about selling ships or have I misunderstood?

You can only have claim to one ship at a time! :P

So taking over another ship is pointless unless you don't want your current ship?

Yes, maybe the other ship has much better components or you want to take it for a trophy

If you take over a ship, you should be able to jettison the cargo.
Currently, jettisoned cargo is destroyed, but the Devs mentioned plans to make jettisoned cargo create a scrap object in space that can be picked up.
