Minor typo in the weapon_data.csv: the lockdown HMG is tagged as "sra_export_bp", but the actual blueprint package is named "ms_export_bp", resulting in there being no blueprint available for this weapon.

Also, a balance observation: the Storm Blaster is competitive with ballistic flak weapons, making it far and away the best energy-slot PD solution.  You may want to nerf it a bit.  (...I don't really want it nerfed, as its current incarnation is gloriously effective, but it is a bit out of gamut for vanilla balance.)

Thanks for catching that; I'll be sure to get that fixed up.

As for the storm blaster... I'm right with you ther. Hmmm, definitely something I'm gonna have to think about.

First, let me thank you for your dedication to bring us the best mod ever  ;) I´ve been playing yardies few years back and they still rocks. Those upgraded sprites and new ships looks amazing (Mimir is still the best, but I am falling in love with Skadi).

Now a wild question appears  :) Is there a way to obtain ShadowYard´s blueprints in a peacefull way? I ´ve started a game as a yardie and want my colony navy to have those amazing ships while not breaking immersion ( I consider them "my nation") and start nuking their colonies for some blueprints.

Thank you very much!

Almost all of the shadowyards blueprints are obtainable in the usual ways - rare drops from research stations, ruins, tech mining, and the like.  The exception is the shadowyards station blueprint - it must be purchased from their military market; it doesn't require a commission, but does require a decent amount of reputation.

...Unless you're playing with Nexerelin in random sector mode; then you can't get the shadowyards station blueprint without using console commands.

Thank you Wyvern,

Only recently I got back to playing Starsector so I wasn´t aware of all the options. But since I havent had any luck with those yet, I had to ask :)

On another note, I was able to build Shadowyards shipyards without blueprint. Is that intentional behavior since I used premade Shadowyards campaign start? (no nexerelin here).

I'd assume so.  I hadn't been aware of that myself, but it does seem like it'd make sense.

It is intended, aye; the blueprint got put in as an optional method, actually. You can get access to the station type if your relationship with the SRA is good enough as well, and this was initially intended to be the only way to do so.

Holy hell, I haven't given Shadowyards a go in a long time (like since 0.8.1) - but I've did so today. And hell, the work you did with stations is honestly amazing. I'd wish more people given it a go for their mods, but then I also realize how time consuming it had to be - but still! Shadowyards is feature complete thanks to it! Huge props!

I also enjoy the new industries that are more of an alternative to (and perhaps downgrade from at times) vanilla stuff rather than improvement. Handy at the beginning, but I imagine switching to vanilla orbital works and refining as soon as I get a chance heh. Still, it's an really nice flavor!

I noticed the lockdown hmg still has sra_export_bp listed in the tag category when it needs ms_export_bp to actually appear on the exports bp package.
