Permissions and credits
(Thanks especially to @monkeyman192, @Wbertro, @Lo2k for mod help.)

THIS IS IMPORTANT: Use only one of the following 3 mods from "".

1. "DropScanner-FreeUpgrades.pak" (This includes both 2. and 3.)
2. "DropScanner.pak" (Changes scan types to choose from)
3. "Free Upgrades.pak" (Upgrades Starships, Multi-tools and Freighter Slots)


Main Features:

1) The Starship salvage module at the Space Station adds free slots to your Starship and also upgrades your Starship Class for free.
The Multi-tool upgrade station at the Space Station adds free slots to your Multi-tool and also upgrades your Multi-tool Class for free.
The freighter upgrade station on the freighter adds free slots to your freighter.



2) The Cryochambers at the Space Station and at Drop Pods add free slots to your Exosuit.




3) The Drop Scanner has new options. Scan the planet for:

-Crashed Starships.
-Minor Settlements to search for different Multi-tools.
-Exosuit Drop Pod locations.
-Portal locations.
-Habitable Outposts. (Feature on older NMS versions)

XHEAD (Enhanced Signal Booster Dec 2018) inspired these drop scanner changes.




This mod makes it less cumbersome to seek out starships and multi-tools posted on No Man's Sky Coordinate Exchange.

Tasks made easier by this mod:
-Upgrading your starship.
-Upgrading your multi-tool.
-Upgrading you exosuit slots.
-Upgrading your freighter slots.
-Searching for a portal.
-Checking different Minor Settlements for a particular multi-tool.
-Searching for a particular "crashed" starship. (Be patient when looking for the better style ships as they are more rare)

Thanks for trying out this mod.
