Faction IDs are used to identify pilot's faction association for out-of-RP purposes. On the Discovery RP servers every ship is required to mount and carry one ID at all times.
All players start with a generic Freelancer ID, which is a basic ID. Faction IDs are sold in some or at least one of the bases belonging to the faction it represents. Generic IDs are sold throughout all of Sirius, mostly on civilian hubs as well as Zoner bases. A Faction ID is Discovery's primary means determining to which faction a player belongs. A Generic ID represents a character not aligning himself to a specific NPC Factions. Terrorist and other restricted IDs can only be given to you by admins.
ID also serves as a tractor beam, so without it player cannot tractor in loot. Special care needs to be taken that you don't lose your ID while acquiring a new ship. ID's are not automatically transferred to the new ship upon purchase. IDs are closely related to many of the server rules, so a good understanding of their concept is crucial.
Rules and details on IDs may not be accurate on Single Player mode, or consistent between servers. Ensure you read the rules and restrictions on your ID while online on the server you wish to use the ID on.
These IDs have no restrictions on Zone of Interest, however has others restrictions, such as smaller cargo space, prohibition to freely engage targes to balance this freedom. As a side note, these IDs are not bound to "1 official faction per 1 ID" rule, and so there can be multiple official factions using the same Generic ID.
