How To Steal Ships?
Find Ships At Landing Sites
Planet landing sites are typically the most common locations for discovering ships that are vulnerable for piracy, offering plentiful sources for potential plundering opportunities. These sites serve as the prime hunting grounds for pirates in search of vessels to commandeer and exploit. Nonetheless, you may also explore the planet's surroundings to find random ship landing sites.
Enage In Space Combat To Takeover Ship
Aside from landing sites, there's even more chances to encounter ships that you can take over in space. However, space combat will be inevitable so you have to have skills like Targeting Control Systems to deal damage to specific ship parts and disengage their engine without completely destroying it.
EM Weapon Systems Is Recommended
If you want to get a ship without damaging it too much, then get the EM Weapon Systems skill to shut it down, especially its weapon systems, so you can dock easily and board the ship.Ship Combat - Space Combat & Battle Spaceships
Kill The Crew Or Leave The Ship
To gain complete control of a ship, you must first eliminate all the ship's crew members, ensuring no resistance remains to assert your authority over the vessel. This ruthless takeover is crucial for establishing your command the ship. However, if you just want to loot its valuables, you have the option to leave without taking full control.
Pilot The Pirated Ship
