Can you Steal Cargo Containers?

#1NEWTisBACKPosted 4/27/2011 3:20:12 PM
I've been mining a lot and I keep popping into asteroid fields that are empty of people but they have like 15 cargo containers floating around, if I bring my Badger out there can I scoop them up without getting murdered? I'm in .5 space if that makes a difference...

the second you pick them up the person they belong to can kill you without punishment..that includes 1.0 space. I also believe you can't warp away for a time after doing so although I could be wrong on that one.

He's not talking about jetcans. If you SCOOP a container into your cargo hold, you're fine.

If you open a can and put the contents into your cargohold, you're a meanie.

I didn't realize you could scoop the whole thing... that would require an itty V at least or maybe a mammoth with t2 rigs... as they are about 27k m3 each

Giant secure containers are much, much smaller.

Scooping a gsc seems sort of silly since you arent going to know the password.

...You don't need the password if its in your cargohold.

You can't open them while they're deployed in space, and most people CBA to scoop them into a badger.
