Blueprint Help Tips
« on: October 25, 2017, 03:41:24 PM »

When viewing the journal's blueprints, there's no indication what the thing you're building actually DOES. Not sure if this is intentional or not.

IE:I didn't' know what a "Basic Skiver" is.

Quick Tip:  For the workshop equipment, as a general rule, you will need (and want) to build them in the order that they appear in the journal, whether you know what they do or not.  Basically you need them in that order because they build on each other for the materials to build the next one.  Forge, Grinder, Cutter, etc.

Also, in the newest version (I played Demo 2.2 and joined at Alpha 3.52, so I don't know exactly what you are looking at from October) there are tabs that show items and which machine is used to make them.  I'm hoping that there will eventually be links for each item to display what is needed to make them, that you can access from that entry, to show the blueprint or recipe for each item.  It looks like the links are being set up that way, but not implemented yet.

So, I guess, in short, it looks like they intend to do this.
