    ...yesterday I logged off and forgot a spawned vehicle.
    After logging in again half an hour later the vehicle was still there.
    Is there a timeout in Entropia Universe and the vehicle will be confiscated or can a vehicle remain spawned for an indefinite period of time while I am offline?
    Does anybody know that?

    The vehicle should have been returned to your planet storage after 10-12 minutes of being off-radar from your avatar. This is how it has always behaved in the past. I'm not sure why your vehicle remained there for an hour.

    Afaik it's any person in radar, that keep it "alive", not just the owner.

    Last I tested if the owner was off radar for ~10 minutes the vehicle returns to storage.

    This is the way it has been since vehicles were released so perhaps you've uncovered a fun MindArk bug or stealth change :)

    If true, this would be a wonderful change for people who like to loan out vehicles. I'll do some testing today and see if the OP encountered a fluke or if MA has changed things.

    Seems it's a problem when you leave planet/go into space for sure. But inside a planet it should be no problem, as long as you stay online. But agreed: when you log off, the vehicle disappears, no matter if someone is in radar or not.

    i think JBK made some test for his renting seervice with this kinda issue and said something about 15min or so.
    its somewhere on pcf... maybe i can find it later.

    and maybe this was changed silently by MA long ago :D
