Does anyone know where I can find Old Versions of XPiratez?
Like for example versions back to B or C or D.

They're still on my Mediafire account.

Not sure exactly what you mean, so i was answer expansively. The missions themselves are a time based spawn iirc. To go to the mission you need a craft with space capacity. Most interceptors count. Battery powered craft do not. For an actual easy clear you need a proper space transport like pachyderm or deliverator.

Spoiler:
the Technocracy datapad or the tome of life?
  I'm in the endgame building up fuel capsules and I'm pretty sure those two are the only avenues I can still research but I'm not exactly sure where they are.  I assume they are either from a rare mission that hasn't spawned yet or rare loot from a mission I've done, but I would like confirmation.

So, I got this Simulacrum thing assembled and delivered to the HQ Base. Now, what to do with it?

From what I've gathered on online pedia, a new option should become available in HANDS screen under Transformation Overview. Creating a Chort by sacrificing your Gal or something. You may or may not need a particular building present (service) in the base where assembled Simulacrum is. Either that or simply a new manufacture option for Chort recruitment.

Necropirate research seem to be the only way to get them. They are exclusive crew to particular ship very distinctly resembling a WW2 B-17 Flying Fortress (no shipping pedia entry exists for it), flying at low speed of 200. You cannot miss it for anything else. Now if there is a prior research that unlocks B-17 appearing on the globe I don't know. I had about 5 such missions in my 1st year by researching all paths pretty much equally. Sounds like you just got unlucky.

If you are not willing to wait and be in the mercy of RNG there's a way to force the plane appearing of the globe (or easier: edit existing crashed site) by adding/editing appropriate string in appropriate place in the save file. You can extract the string from "Piratez_Factions.rul". I believe it's "STR_MISSION_NECROPIRATE_HUNT" but who knows. It looks like in some cases Necropirates stop appearing altogether after 7th month so save editing might be the only solution.

If I come across them again I could copy+paste the section to include in your own save.

There's is another way by simply marking the arrows as researched (probably) but dunno if that would mark all the right flags that it indeed was properly researched via normal means (dependencies, production, etc.). Might even cause irreversible damage so I wouldn't risk losing more than I'd gain.

The Taberna Del Diablo always spawns, so you can't really miss necropirates now, even if you miss these flights.

I just had that Taberna mission the other day.  It was quite a surprise, and (spoiler, sort of) I couldn't understand why my gals were getting hit with nobody there.  Thank goodness for my Mutant medic!
