What are the blueprints (Blueprints, BP)?
With the help of the blueprints in EVE Echoes, it is possible to build various ships or equipment to upgrade existing ships. To make a blueprint, you will need all the necessary materials (ores and, as a rule, various resources and parts of the ship).
Where do you get the blueprints?
Buy on the market
If you have an extra ISK ( game currency), it is the easiest way to get drawings. Go to menu -> Market -> Scroll down until you see Ship Drawings and Hardware Drawings, and select the desired one. Usually, they cost much less than buying a finished item, but depending on the resources they need, you may have to make some supplies.
Find the drawings in the anomalies
Anomalies are random events that appear randomly, and when you finish them, you may get a chance to get the loot, including the drawings.
Check Trade Hubs
The stations you should be checking out:
- Jita (this is the main trading hub. Keep in mind that if it is full, it may cause your phone to go off or hang up)
- Amarr (not as busy as Jita, but closer to zero)
- 5ZXX-K (here you can find drawings of rare fraction ships and cruiser drawings, e.g. drawings of Harmoor and Ortrouse)
- Matar (there are not many players here, and you can find a lot of interesting items)
In my opinion, one of the best hubs is 5ZXX-K, because it has systemic bonuses to the interaction of planets and more fertile fields of asteroids with ore than Jita or Amarr. I should add that the Ortrouse bp makes it possible to create one of the most powerful cruisers in the game.
How do you find the blueprints you bought at the market?
All you have to do is go to the Inventory and at the bottom left of the screen you will see the “Personal Assets” button. There you will be able to explore all the items and as soon as you find the bp you are looking for, click on it and then on Use Blueprint.
You will now be able to use the Manufacture option, which lists all the resources and materials needed to build a ship or equipment.
