I cant upgrade ships with unique components, precursor weapons etc

Posted on Sunday, February 17, 2019

If i put any unique component into any ship, i cant upgrade these later even if i have an identical version of the same ship with just changed vanilla parts.

If i  upgrade them to vanilla ships, then the precursor equipment is lost, and i cant upgrade them back to a newer version of the same ship with the same unique components.

The only way to update a ship using these weapons is to decommission the existing ship, and re-build the ship with updated components.

Which totally removes all the level, experience and all the benefits gained from experience, making experience system useless. 

Is there any way to go around this major feature-breaking problem?
