The new patch is very nice, it helps with the items we have in our hangar but you should put something to make a small difrence when i see my blueprints... i have a bunch of blueprints in my hangars and i allways search 30mins to find my originals.Neutral

This is a known issue.
CCP admits it's a problem. They also admit that fixing it would require a significant change to the way their data is stored, which is not something they are interested in doing atm. I can't be arsed to look up the details, but doing a google search on the topic will probably net you about 10 trillion threads on the same subject.

How do you figure? It could be as simple as adding a symbol to the upper-right corner of blueprints that are copies. Change the image not the code, it wouldn't take that long.

When I developed an application that had a ton of items (10,000+) in an inventory management system, we had to add tiny icons to bulk inventory vs. individual inventory items to make them easier to spot in the IMS. This only took as a dedicated afternoon and a dozen designers to do. We had the option deployed same day.

And believe me, it doesn't take much to script updates like this to 10,000 records in SQL Server. we do it all the time.

why it wasn't feasible

There are a lot of these threads appearing recently.

Basically, the hangar doesn't know whether its a copy/original. Only show info and the industry windows do.

edit- link fail. Must learn to use "preview"...

Because of infrastructure changes relating to the 64 bit inventory migration this feature actually might be on the horizon.

ore accurately it might RETURN after you removed it from the game ;-)

get a small container, put your BPC in that container and call it BPC
OR
make a separate division in your corp for BPC.

the easy thing to do would be to color BPC white and BPO blue. easy!

A secret: Your BPO is always either the first one, or the last one, in a row of blueprint copies of the same name.

once a distinction can be made between BPO and BPC it might be an idea to also group all BPO prior to BPC in hangar. selecting will be much easier...

Until the theorised ability to distinguish between BPOs and BPCs in inventory arrives, you can handle the blueprints through the Science & Industry window's Blueprints tab.

Not as good as the real thing, but it certainly helps.
