Once you choose the upgrade, the conversation will end and you get a guidance mission that'll lead you to another dock on the same station. There you'll be directed towards a mechanic that sells you the engine/shield/weapon for free.

Here is how you can easily find specific rare items (rare engine and SETA):

1. Lock for a "Valuable items going spare"-like mission and save (1).
2. Accept the mission and save again (2).
3. Open your save (2) and ctrl+f for "hidden_common_lockbox". Look for wares listed right below:

Code: Select all

<drop allowed="0" ref="hidden_common_lockbox_al"/>
<wares>
<ware ware="inv_rareenginecomponents_9" amount="2"/>
<ware ware="inv_rarejumpdrivecomponents" amount="5"/>
<ware ware="inv_rareenginecomponents_5"/>
<ware ware="inv_rareterranhightechgoods" amount="9"/>
</wares>
4. Look on Roguey's page under inventory for your desired ware_id to identify a specific item.
5. Load save (1) and head for another mission if your desired item didn't spawn.

Um, are the relic lockboxes still in the same place in 4.0? I just went back to Last Stand to check, but haven't seen the lockbox within the asteroid... what gives? I'm 100% sure I haven't picked it up yet.

I had a similar concern but I found them all in the end in 4.0. In my case, I had forgotten which locations I had collected some parts from.

To help with that, you can find tables at the bottom of the wiki guide to craftables that say the name of the items alongside the general location of their lockbox.

In some cases the LRS ping return can be blocked by objects between your location & LoS to <desired scan location>

Move around a bit & try LRS again

I've not found any unique lockbox location changes in v4, but like Sparky I've occasionally misremembered the locations (or forgot to pick them up) :)

Can confirm they are in same places in 4.0 I did my collection run for my video just after 4.0 was released.

Thanks guys, that's what I feared... I guess that lockbox is lost to me now. During the plot mission when you first enter Last Stand, a certain number of Xenon Ks shot up the station pretty badly. Maybe they destroyed the container too :(
Well, on to the other collection then.

I've found that lockbox really hard to find and they (unlike their contents) are though to be indestructible. If that's accurate, it must still still be there to find even if empty.

Can confirm the fact, that crafting lockboxes are indestructible. I was straight up shooting them and hull % was always 100.

As for "crafting" lockboxes - there is a box with 8 pcs of Jumpdrive Coolant for Xperimental mission in Sputnik Planum (Cold Star, Ode Monumenti) in one of the ruptured tubes of the aqueduct, with ice nearby. Be aware, that LRS doesn't show it. You have to find it oldschool way.

Oh, and, apparently, very expensive mystery box missions (we are talking 20+ million) can spawn lockboxes with Jumpdrive components (rare). In may case (20 mil mission) I got 3 + bunch of rare engine parts. Read a report of 8 dropping from 30+ million box.
