Are there actually 20 PRAWN Suit fragments?

After playing for a while, I realized that, other than the large prawn fragments, there are smaller fragments you can get, but you would need 20 of them to get the blueprint. Are there actually 20 mini-prawn suit fragments, or are they just one of the things for the ascetic of the game, without an actual function?
Life is a window. It is just a scream into the darkness, passing the time until all of you, your memories, and all of humanity slowly fade into the void that is death. As your window closes, you will know that life is just the fight against it, even though it is just a constant in life. Death is the Impending Doom, the one force that always prevails, the true entity that connects and binds us all. All problems, either big or small, amount to nothing. The one possible savior to this world and everything in it is our own universal mortality. Once we realize this, society might finally become true and pure, and all will be at peace.

    There are smaller prawn fragments scattered all over wrecks. They can be scanned for a full PRAWN suit before you visit the Aurora. But, if you visit the Aurora, then you'll get the full one either way.

    Yeah, I think there's two ways to do it. An Aurora visit is by far the easiest, but I don't see how having a second way could be bad.

    Nope, it doesn't seem like there is.

    I'm currently replaying the game with a twist. The Mountain (not the biome, just the island), Floating Island and the Aurora are taboo.
    I've explored, if not all, most of the wrecks and have acquired 7 (out of 20) small fragments and 3 (out of 4) large fragments.

    I don't know if there is some sort of randomness to the fragments distribution (I believe there is). If there is some sort of rng mechanic, then maybe I just got very unlucky. Maybe it is by design, to ensure players will explore the Aurora before going deeper.
    Some of the wrecks (2 or 3) did not have any fragments at all (of anything), just some furniture (I had already scanned), one or two chests (with rations or water) and sometimes a collectible.

    It does feel bugged.
    Originally I thought that by combining small with large fragments one could acquire the PRAWN blueprint. In this particular case I should have obtained it with 5/20 small and 3/4 large as it should amount for a full blueprint.



    Whatever the case, my game just got more interesting. It just means building a cyclops, getting to the bottom and then building a rocket. Without drilling for materials.

    The fragments found inside the Aurora will each count as 5 out of 20, so they're worth more.

    I don't think so. There seems to be two different "counters", one for the small fragments (where 20 frags are needed) and one for the large fragments (4 frags needed).
    They do not seem to be interchangeable, either you collect twenty small ones or four large ones.

    Yeah, @Maalteromm, I'm pretty sure that they don't combine, when you scan big and small fragments. I'm also fairly sure their aren't 20 small fragments in the world. It might be implemented so a new player would get the PDA for the PRAWN Suit, then immediately want to find one.

    Ah, I see. Sorry about that, haven't played for a while!

    Nothing to feel sorry about. I also thought it worked the way you described.
