You can scrap other players' ships outside of safezones. You can't seize ownership of them yet, but support for it is planned. Likewise, seizing control of enemy stations is planned, but not implemented yet.

Im pretty sure you can still fly them, just that you arent their owner. Not sure what happens if you destroy their transponder and place your own, or if thats even possible rn.

the idea is you can find a ship or take one from someone in a non safe zone, and once you bring it back to a station as you enter the station it will become yours. a couple months ago it wasn't working yet, when i would fly another person's ship back to a base or whoever abandoned those ships it would lock up on me and fly on its own back out of the station are. i do not know if they made it where you can register other peoples ship to you or not, but a ship in a non safe zone was flyable at least.

Right now you can only claim ships if the previous owner has used the specific option to explicity forfeit ownership of them. Yes, flying ships owned by someone else is possible outside the safezone, but you'll lose control if you fly them into a safezone and if you manage to despawn them, they go into the owner's station inventory rather than yours.

if you build a ship within the safezone, but in open space, when would ownership/classification as a ship be established, as opposed to just being a bunch of parts put together?
