What's the best place to find blue conciousness shards? It's only now when I'm starting to run out big time that I'm noticing I end up with other colours nearly the whole time. I explored some buildings earlier and I don't think I came across any blue shards. I don't think I got any for defeating bosses either....
I wish there was a way to convert one colour shard into another.....I have who knows how many of the other colours sitting around when I'm in desperate need for blue ones.
Conversion isn't something we'd want to have, or at least not have be accessible at all early or be anything near 1:1; making resources interchangeable tends to lead to design problems.
Anyway, what you're experiencing is just transitional: the costs will be more varied in colors, worry not
Are you actually running out of shards? There's something like 1000 in each settlement's starting stockpile, and you can just take from the newer settlements and give it to the settlements you want to use them from.
Also while I'm asking, if these shards are fragments of the people who didn't survive the transition....what do the colours mean in that regard? What makes one person who didn't survive be a blue shard and another person a green shard. Just curious.
That's one of the mysteries
One possibility is different personalities/hopes/dreams/etc.
