Capture asteroids and other artifacts
Hello! So, my question is this. I have managed to find, and tractor parts of the revenant back to my secure space. However it is treated like an enemy so i cant either use or benefit from it. I haven't dared to fire it down.

So, can I capture revenant parts and how? Also, can i retake enemy asteroids (no ore but resources)?

wonder too?
If revenant parts are already activated, you'll need to destroy them first. They'll revert to artifact form and can be reactivated.

If they aren't activated, but are claimed by another empire (you can see this by zooming out a bit, color of the artifact icon will be changed to that of the empire that claimed it), you can claim them through diplomacy. There is a card called "Claim artifact" or something like that that you can play, you'll need to win a vote though. I think it should also work on dormant revenant parts.

You can capture asteroids by tractoring them deep into your territory. I think they need to be out of the other empire's trade area, so if you bring them into a system that connects only to other systems owned by you they should "turn neutral" again after a few minutes. Then you can build mines on them as usual. (At least I think it works like this in vanilla as well; I've only played with RS or DOF for so long, there's a small chance it could be a modded behavior.)

However, if the parts are deep in enemy territory, you may need to use a tug to tow them closer to your space.

I'm reasonably certain that Revenant parts cannot be claimed in this fashion. It's either owned and on, or unowned and off.

This is a vanilla feature, yes. If I'm not mistaken, you can also capture the planet that built them.
