Component

Specialised Legacy Firmware

Used by factions as a reward for mission contracts. Known to be salvaged from signal sources. Known to be found in small settlement data point networks.

Specialised legacy firmware is the control software from earlier versions of the technology. These can be rare finds and have some uses in developing new versions with backwards compatibility.

How to get components

Components may be obtained in locations noted. Higher rarity components can be usually obtained from bigger and/or more dangerous ships and locations (like T9 for transportation ships, Anaconda for combat ships, well defended settlements with Data points and so on).

The data may be incomplete or not entirely accurate. If you find any errors please let me know in the discussion.
