I recently got two events that a vehicle I was assigned was 'confiscated to be auctioned off'. I thought that entities that were assigned went first to the pilot, then commander and only got auctioned if neither were assigned. Or is that only for player death?
...considering I received 932 events (seemingly two per) for each Cloud City facility I operated for facility income. The text is incorrect though, as the assets were (very obviously) facilities and not vehicles. If faction assets transferred like character deaths, I would probably own those two planets and one comet :P
