Thanks for the reply! Also what if I have already put mods into the orange and want to swap them out for better mods will it scale again? Does it have to be adaptable?
Don't bother pulling the old mods out when upgrading as you level. Just put the new ones in. The old ones will be destroyed, but the cost to remove the mods is far more than they are worth. Once you get to the stuff where the set bonuses are on the armoring, not the "shell", then it will be worth it to pull the mod and put it into something else so you can have the look you want.
