I understand that gaining items from a past life is not allowed under the golden rule, but what about random instances?

EX. three months ago i had in my possession a YT-1300. i sold it,and continued on untill my death. if i bought a YT-1300 with my new charachter,and it turned out by some miracle to be the same one as i had with a previous charachter, would i get in trouble for that?

Just curious,really.

If you bought it, as in, you paid for it with tangible asset transfer, that's fine.

If you happened to have some really generous friends who just happened to give it to you for no exchange in credits, then that's not fine.

If it is an honest transaction (not a gift or dirt cheap) then it is ok.

So if I died and had sold a custom YT1300 prior to my death and then after I made another character I bought it for less then what I sold it for, would I then get in trouble?

If you had a custom YT 1300 with a past character and sought out the same custom YT 1300, you would get in trouble.

Because he sought it out? Or because he paid less than what he sold it for (effectively circumventing the Golden Rule)?

But if he paid more, would he still be in trouble?

What if he just bought a new YT1300 but wanted to use the same paintjob/custom image? (when Tiali dies all her stuff {her NPCs/droid and ships, including the Steel Stag) will reenter the market {or possibly Darkness} but when mah next character gets a ship of their own they might want to reuse the same image or at least the a similar paintjob)

If you deliberately seek out the same one, expect bad things. If you buy any one of the thousands of YT 1300s in the game and randomly get the same one, don't worry.

As for images, talk to the Art Team. Some might say it's in poor taste from a RP perspective, but the Art Team can tell you if they feel it's legal or not.

There are too many customs being submitted every day, we wouldn't personally be able to remember ones that were accepted before and deny them if they exist already. So unless we get informed about it, if you submit a custom image as one character and submit the same as another, we wouldn't know that you did.

But as Hal said, it's poor taste in our opinion anyways.
