Blueprints are used in crafting.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Typical blueprint

Blueprints are used to craft new technologies, products, and advanced chemical structures. Blueprints are not consumed during crafting process.

Purpose[edit | edit source]

The more blueprints players discover, the more advanced the level of crafts and upgrades become. Upgrading your Exosuit, Starship, Multi-tool, or Exocraft capabilities (including Lasers, Projectiles and Grenades, and Scanning) are an important part of the game play.

Usage[edit | edit source]

To craft from a blueprint, you require one free space in your inventory. When you click on an empty slot a window opens with a list of available blueprints. Any blueprint that installs/upgrades technology will disappear from their respective crafting category after installation. If dismantled, the related blueprint will show up again. For consumable items, players can craft as much as they want.

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

Blueprints can be found in a variety of places, including: Crashed Ships, Manufacturing Facilities, Operations Centres, Observatories, and Containers.

Many blueprints may only be awarded through base building, and following Polo's path.

Some may also be purchased using Nanite Clusters from Technology Merchants at Space stations.

Dismantle[edit | edit source]

When dismantling an unwanted technology, the player will receive 50% of the original crafting cost back to inventory.

Note: if a player runs out of inventory space while dismantling, the resource(s) will be lost forever.
