This wouldn’t add much in the ways of content, but it would be really cool if the carriers of blueprints or ship parts had the model of the item somewhere on them, or being dragged behind them or something.
1)A cargo ship is carrying one or more ship crafting parts.
It’s model would be changed out for a framework-like model with a ship held inside.
2)A standard pirate has the blueprint for a Mk5 coil mortar.
It’s model is given a sort of gravity gun beam out the back that is carrying a weapon.
3)A mysterious container is found, and it has the blueprint for a Reverse Thruster.
It’s model, once revealed, would be the active module disk associated, or some other like model.
This could also make for some very interesting additions of ships and weapons and modules.
