EVE Academy – Basic Industrial Production
A new tutorial has been added to EVE Academy! This video focuses on basic production, blueprints, and manufacturing as a part of the Industrialist path. You can find the video below or over on the EVE Academy site itself.
EVE Academy is your guide to New Eden - a website aimed at giving new EVE Online players the best start by providing a tailored learning experience. It provides a wealth of information designed to help you decide who you want to be. Pick from Explorer, Industrialist, Enforcer (PvE) or Soldier of Fortune (PvP) to get skill plans, beginner ship fittings, and curated links to resources created by the EVE Online community.
Blueprints come in two variants, originals and their copies. Many of the Tech 1 (basic technology) blueprint originals can be purchased on the market from NPC sell orders depending on the region you are in. The blueprint window will then show you the materials required and the time that it will take to create that specific item.
You can start this process by placing the blueprint into the Industry window and selecting one of several jobs: manufacturing will create the item if you have the materials, copying will produce a limited copy for invention or production elsewhere, and research will either reduce the manufacturing time (Time Efficiency) or lower the amount of materials required (Material Efficiency). These science and manufacturing jobs will, however, take up build slots, limiting the number of jobs that a Capsuleer can have running at once.
