course, before construction can begin, you must decide what kind of
item you wish to create. Equipment Mods can be socketed into gear for
powerful benefits, and various Consumables will lend you bonuses for

components, including Exobytes, and assemble the new item at a Research
and Development station. Equipment Mods come in various colors which,
when matched with similarly colored sockets on your gear, can provide
even further bonuses and power.
some gear found in the world can now be deconstructed at Research and
Development stations to aid in the process. Salvaging these items will
return Research and Development components that can be used in other
