Sorry I've been away for so long not working on Nova; I must have been really depressed or something and had no interest in programming outside of my job!

So, I was trying to upgrade the game to .NET 5, and I ran into a weird issue with the components.xml file. It was actually missing from my repo for some reason, so I found it in the old SourceForge repo. But now when I try to load the game, I get an error having to do with the "MineralPacket" hull. It's a null reference exception relating to the hull's AllocatedComponent property. I can't figure out what that property does and it doesn't seem to be defined anywhere in components.xml, so I don't know what to populate it with. Or can I get rid of it? It seems to be used in a few places but they don't really give any indication of what it's supposed to be... do I have an old version of the components.xml, perhaps?

Any help would be appreciated! 🙂
