Hello, This post should help users that are looking for answers and have something unclear with the vehicle locking/unlocking dynamics. I will edit the 1st post to keep the answers up to date. "This way" - Ill mention topics that could help specify what I mean by the question deeper and also show you I know now and am not 100% sure of 1.) What does it mean an vehicle is LOCKED? - Only the original player that LOCKED can UNLOCK it back again? (TRUE/FALSE ?) This is TRUE - for some time, after the LOCK timer counts off (different to each server) anyone can UNLOCK the vehicle. - Server Restart clears the link between vehicle and player? (TRUE - everyone can unlock? / FALSE ?) This is FALSE - server restarts do not affect this link - only LOCK timer (different from server to server) does. - Group members can UNLOCK an vehicle that their group member locked? (TRUE/FALSE ?) - Can be locked only when in state UNLOCKED and NOONE is sitting inside. (TRUE/FALSE ?) This is TRUE, both must be true to LOCK a vehicle. 2.) What does it mean an vehicle is UNLOCKED? - If found UNLOCKED any player can LOCK? (TRUE/FALSE ?) 3.) Is there a way of stealing/changing ownership of an LOCKED vehicle? - Killing the owner (he is standing next to it) - does that do anything? (TRUE / FALSE ?) Killing the owner of an LOCKED vehicle does nothing, sorry :-( - Anything else... ? Nothing beside LOCK timer thicking off.. 4.) LOOTING an vehicle can be done only when in UNLOCKED state, right? True. SCENARIOS: 1.) I see a guy driving a KART (obviously UNLOCKED since he is driving) and I shoot him I can take his KART and use it as if I have bought it. True/False? This is a TRUE scenario. 2.) I see a LOCKED vehicle and I would really love to use it (I cant UNLOCK it - there was no restart since locking) what can I do to take ownership? - hide and wait for the owner to come and kill him right after he unlocks True. - wait for server restart and return afterwards? False. Server restart does not affect this. The lock timer does. - anything else? Nope. Sorry :( Lockpicks may come later 3.) It is 3AM and I see an empty base with a chopper on top. Obviously there has been an restart, If I come there with my friend and a chopper, am I able to steal it? Half true half false. The restart is not important - the lock timer is, so if that is gone, you may come and steal it very much! 4.) If I see a chopper landing in the safezone, and I am able to hide myself, as soon as he land, and gets out, in the time of <him getting out> and <locking> am I able to LOCK his chopper? - if all players should take care if landing going up to the safezone with players near True. Yet, its a 'dick' move and if you do it, ur a dick. :P Thank you
