On my Souped Up Auton Bay mod I got a report from Larinoja that "you can tear your auton apart, sell them and gear for profit. From 310A aegis you can get 27000C for autocannon. I gave test for that and got over 100k from auton before leaving Tau Ceti."

Is there a reason why this is so? Is that why we can't remove devices from autons?

Auton prices should take into account the items they have.

The problem then becomes that they get awfully expensive, awfully quickly. But a rebalance couldn't hurt things.

This is an issue with vanilla as well: you can turn a profit on auton armor and equipment by replacing it with cheap crap left, right and centre.

Couldn't this be fixed by giving the autons special versions of their more high end equipment that players cannot directly use(similar to the CSC Damage Control Party)?
