Basically my hard drive got corrupted and I want to know which files to recover before i install steam and possibly overwrite them. Can someone tell me what the avorion save files are called? (including file extension) Sorry if the question is a little bit vague.

Oh no, sorry to hear about your hard drive. :(

The galaxy save isn't a single file, it's a folder with a bunch of different files inside it. The default location for it is in Users/YourUserName/AppData/Roaming/Avorion/galaxies

Unfortunately I do not know which files contain which things.

If you're looking for your ship blueprints, those will be saved in the ships folder in the same directory path as above and end in .xml
If you can recover those then at least you won't lose your ship designs.

The Save files for both your galaxies and Ships are found in ' Appdata > Roaming > Avorion '          At least that is what it is for me.

To backup your galaxies and ships, find the Avorion folder inside the %appdata% folder.
Both have their own folders there.
