Blueprints are special schematics that are required to make certain advanced items in the game. They are discovered by finding the Data Boxes in the Degasi Seabases, Destroyed Lifepods and Wrecks and retrieving the data chip from them. Some items, however, like the Laser Cutter, require using the Scanner to scan Fragments left behind in Wrecks of the Aurora. The only exception to this is the Repulsion Cannon blueprint that can be obtained from a Data Terminal located in the Aurora. Some blueprints are added based on a certain event, such as the radiation suit is added when the Aurora’s drive core explodes.

Pre-Installed Blueprints

Certain Blueprints do not require Fragments, and are pre-installed in the PDA.

Discoverable Blueprints

The player has to scan multiple Fragments in order to research most Blueprints, while others require the player to have obtained an item or blueprint beforehand. Once discovered, Blueprints can be used an infinite amount of times for building purposes.
