Find the Blackbox (EOL)
!Caution! This mod no longer receives updates! Support for this has been discontinued.
Thanks to everyone who was interested in this mod project as long as it was active.
Unfortunately I cannot remove the mod because the site operator / administration has blocked the function for deleting mods. That's why this note.
!NOTE! The "Branches" section shows you the current release build id's under:
This mod brings you 3 things!
1. Blackbox have an -> icon <- and are *destructible
2. This icon appears automatically if your ship is in range. Also obtained a -> short Audio Info <- !
3. After you have finished the interaction with the -> Blackbox, you can destroy <- them and thus remove the Signal/Icon. But you must not, if you want to keep the Signal/Icon.
*For destruction you get:
Nanites (80) & Quicksilver (150) = Blackbox of Ships
Magnetised Ferrite (5 to 25) = Blackbox of Crashed Freighters***
If you are flying out of range, the Icon is automatically deactivated!
This Version are not compatible with Mods they change the following files:
There are two versions:
Audio signal and the icon of the Blackbox only indicated for ships.
Audio signal and the icon of the Blackbox are indicated for ships and the crashed freighters.
Hopefully I solved the problem with the non-destructible freighter terminal.
NMS currently has also some animation bugs. The blackbox animation does not work or was removed during the interaction. However, this is not due to the mod, so it is broken even in vanilla.
A big thanks to emoose for his reference, which allowed us all great mod projects for many weeks. The same to monkeyman192, theFisher86 and grekwaste and to all those who were perhaps still involved in your great work on the update of the mbincompiler!
Place !ONE of the downloaded '_MOD.Find.the.Blackbox*.pak' (inside the zip file) in the No Man's Sky/GAMEDATA/PCBANKS/MODS folder. If the "MODS" folder don't exist create it. An then delete the "DISABLEMODS.TXT" in the PCBANKS folder or move it to another folder or rename it. Otherwise no mods will be loaded!

- Healing points of the simulated destructive point reduced from 2000 to 1500
-- explanation: the blackbox of the freighter can not really be destroyed, otherwise the complete freighter model will be removed from the game and further errors will occur. i had to place a second destruction point in the same place as the interaction point of the blackbox exists. the blackbox itself is only hidden after the destruction of the facsimile. At 2000 hit points it often happens that the facsimile still persists as a invisible mesh after the destruction. if you shoot again it disappears completely. Unfortunately, this can not be completely prevented. But minimize it while reducing the healing points.
