The device is very rare and difficult to find, and since it's not exactly a production model it's interface can be a bit tricky to use. What else would you expect from a pirate anyway.
-----This very rare and expensive device allows a pirate to hack through the
shields of another ships and transport the cargo off the target ship. The
process only works over very close range, is slow, and is rather obvious to
In order to use the device you also require a transporter device, available
from the Goner Temple, and a freight scanner, available from all good pirate
bases. You must be within 275m of the target, for the device to work, and
you must remain within this distance while the transporting takes place.
Because of the nature of the cargo transfer, goods are only transfered one
unit at a time so the transfer may take quite a while if you try to take a
large quantity. A message will be displayed once the transfer is complete.
Note that each unit transfered runs the risk of detection, and that risk is
increases with the strength of the targets shields.
Where to get the shield hacker:
The supply of this device is limited, you can get it at pirate owned
stations but only one is likely to have any at any given time.
