Archives » Stealing Equipable Items?
Year 11 Day 364 13:38
I noticed a few things in Combine. One of them is that almost every time I buy an item that is equipable, it is taken by someone else. So I was wondering if people are actually able to pick up items such as a blaster or a vest even if they don't own it?

Thanks.

Yup, if you find it you can pick it up and technically "steal" it, though you can't steal ownership.

Dang... oh well. I think I had better stop wasting large portions of money on items like that.

Hmm, so if you steal a ship, all you really do is stop the owner from ever seeing it again, because you cant fly it anymore?

only way to really steal a ship now days is to dock it, but you only prevent the owner from using it and you can't use it yourself.

Items, Kael, not assets.

I came across some items (no I did not steal them) that have owners who have been banned, are inactive, and in one case apparently never logged on. I know this because I did profile searches on the names attached to these items. Is there any way to makeover these items to myself?

No, not currently. But lack of ownership does not prevent you using them.

Thanks. I understand I can use the items but trying to sell them would be difficult and downloading custom images impossible. I imagine when combat is introduces and characters/NPC's start dying there are going to be all kinds of items and ships left behind after their owners die. I would think that there would have to be a way to claim those abandoned assets. Any opinions?

Assets from the dead go to the NPC market. Check the Life and Death rules.

Come combat, I would also expect some way to gain ownership of an asset through some forcible means, but until rules are released nothing is certain.

You don't need to own an entity to submit custom image for it, you just need to be at least commander. Though you can't assign yourself. And you can sell them, just state in the description you don't have ownership, some people buy stuff like that.

Possession in 9/10 the law.
