Was trying to spawn bionics for a character earlier, and I noticed that only a small amount of the bionics had spawned. I thought this was odd, but didn’t think much of it. I tried to spawn them again, and the missing ones still wouldn’t spawn. Created a blank character on an unmodded world, and the bionics in question still couldn’t be spawned. I’m assuming its either an issue with either the current experimental build (2021-05-20-2005), or some kind of mod issue that has decided to delete a bunch of bionics from the game files. I rarely manage to find bionics, so that’s not my primary concern. My concern is that this could be happening to other items as well, and I would be none the wiser.
Attempted downpatching (to 2021-05-20-0609), but the issue was not resolved. I’ll attempt a fresh install whenever I get the chance and post an update on whether that fixed it (meaning it was a mod issue) or didn’t (meaning it’s likely an issue with the recent experimental builds).
UPDATE: Confirmed to be a mod issue of unknown origin. Read replies for more details.
UPDATE 2: As was probably expected, the issue was my own stupidity. Dark Skies blacklists a bunch of things, including most CBMs. However, it seems to have a bunch of other issues, such as the blacklist being in effect until you restart the game. I’ll open that as a separate thread, however.
