Hi all,

I'm fiddling around with research and production atm. I stumbled over some questions that somebody might help me with:

1.) Blueprints - What is the difference between an original and a copy? I know that I can't sell the copy, but other than that? Can I make a copy from a copy? Or is there a chance to fail when I work with a copy?

2.) Research - I found out that I can run a research on the material costs and on the production time. If I do that multiple times, does the effect stack or is it wasted (meaning if I research "production time" 4 times will it go faster after each run?)? Are these effects carried over if I make a copy of it?

3.) Is there a limit on the amount of copies I can make?

4.) Is it just me or is the "Reverse Engineering" and "Duplicate" not working? Never found an item that it worked on...

5.) What does Manufacture do? Can I improve the stats of the item with that?

I'd be happy for any hints.

Thanks a lot in advance..
