    Hello, I was in my base when I saw "Mining Carriage" somewhere in space. So I've decided to capture it.

    When I flew to the ship, I've disabled both generators. Then, I've disabled antenna and gattling gun. After that, I've hacked and re-enabled one of the reactors. Then, I've hacked Flight Seat. But when I'm sitting in my Flight Seat, I cannot use anything! I cannot use any thrusters, I dont see ANY block in control panel (except the one control panel). I cannot turn on innertia dampeners, I cannot turn on/off the ship (the power button is red, so it seems, like it is without power, but I've enabled the reactor!). How can I control it? The ship is going away like 18m/s. My ship was destroyed just before disabling both generators.

    How can I stop it? I'm 13km away from my base and I want to get this ship back.

    Thanks, Soptik.

    // PS: As you might noticed, its my first "raid" ever, so everything will help!

    you'll need to find the remote control block...

    thats most likely still enabled.
    wouldn't hurt (you) if you destroy any programmable/timer blocks along the way! :D

    Where is the remote control block located? I've searched, but I've found only:
    2 reactors
    2 gyros
    3 large cargo containers
    1 control panel
    1 antenna
    1 beacon
    1 gattling gun

    and of course some thrusters... But no remote control blocks, timer blocks, or programmable blocks. Where are they located?

    its been that long since i've attacked one i really wouldn't know.

    grinding each block until below the red/blue line and re welding it makes it yours so keep doing that until all the blocks on the ship are yours.
    if you access one and check what blocks are on the list you'll see some are red.

    see if you can find remote blocks or timer blocks.

    timer blocks themselves tend to make a faint beeping sound

    I've taken a few of these. There is no remote control on them. It sounds like you accidentally disconnected the flight seat from the ship.

    Did you grind or destroy the block below the seat? I've accidentally done this to other ships I've captured and get the results you speak of.

    Simply grind it down and build a new seat anywhere on the ship. Just make sure it points forward.
