This is huge. You should post something in general about looting boxes in space, handling the multi-tool, how you get stuff aboard, and how to open the boxes. Don't post here. Not enough people read here.

The first Pirate Palaver was encouraging.

1. Confirmed cargo boxes drop from destroyed ships
2. Boxes persist long enough to loot them
3. explosions and engine wash interact with the boxes
4. cargo moved to a ships cargo grid can be sold at an admin office
That's great news!

I've sent you some old piracy gameplay event idea on discord 🍻

Some people say piracy, others say buccaneer's, heck, historicly they're privateers (sic CR) I prefer the term "freebooter" defined as; One who is free to boot; A free-er of booty; verb - I see you've been freebooting again /or/ Damn, look at the size of that free booty!
We could even have a theme song similar to YMCA playing over the comms when we jam them. You could Jam to your favorite jam while jamming!
I also thought I'd post this old link to a spectrum thread from WAAAAAAY back in the day about
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Pirates
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Pirates - General - Star Citizen - Spectrum v5.5.0 (robertsspaceindustries.com)
