EVN - available NCB's and resource ID's

Noob question -- If I want to make a plug-in compatible with the stock EVN galaxy, do I have to open up all the data files every time I want to add a new resource or set a new NCB in the plug-in, or is there a comprehensive list of all the resource ID's and NCB numbers used by EVN so that I know I'm not overwriting a stock mission/ship/government? I'm messing around with the latest Mission Computer, getting delusions of grandeur.

I think there are guides on the Add-ons page. In case no one has ever made one, you could also just print the ressources from the stock files on paper (or into a pdf or something) and voila, there you are.

This question might have been asked before (I can't remember) but here is some stuff that I hope will help.

Bit 1: General outfit-blocking bit (i.e. the one which prevents players from purchasing most of the outfits while flying a Vell-os ship. Or, for that matter, a Wraith or Hyperioid.)
Bit 5: The "I'm flying a Leviathan" bit - allows missions only available to Leviathans
Bit 6: The "I'm flying a Pegasus" bit - ditto, albeit with a Pegasus.
Bit 7: The "I'm flying a Star Liner" bit
Bit 17: No idea - one of the Valk variants sets it, but it seems to have no effect.
Bit 31: The "I'm flying a Valk" bit - makes the Rebel and Pirate Valk upgrades available
Bit 32: The "I'm flying a Starbridge" bit - makes the Chrome Valk and Rebel and Pirate Starbridge upgrades available
Bit 33: The Heavy Weapons License bit
Bit 34: The Missile Weapons License bit
Bit 35: The Fighter Bay License bit
Bit 36: The Protective Technologies License bit
Bit 37: An Exotic Ships and Weapons License bit, but doesn't actually seem to do anything
Bit 38: As above
Bit 39: The Capital Ships License bit
Bit 40: The Capital Warships License bit
Bit 41: An Exotic Ships and Weapons License bit (allows Ion Cannon and Polaron Cannon)
Bit 42: The Illegal Weapons bit - gets set when you buy an illegal weapon, but it seems to have no effect.

And for anything else here is a link to The Nova Resource Guide (from the link in Guy's sig)

(tip: Nova doesn't use govt ID's over 195 or ship ID's over 414)

The EVN Bits Bible is all you need bitwise, and NovaReferencePlus covers all the rest. Seriously, I used those for ARPIA2, and they are great tools.

As of 1.0.9, which is when I last updated these, the following were the unused ranges for NCBs and the various resource types. I don't think there were any changes between 1.0.9 and 1.0.A.
