I am sorry if this question has been asked before.

I know you need blueprint copies to do invention but does it matter how many runs are on that BPC?

Does a 1 run BPC only give you a 1 run tech II BP or is it based on skill and materials used?

Is a 5 run better than a 1 run?

Thanks for the help.

Better runs = better returns.

If you use a max run T1 BPC you will get more runs in the resulting T2 BPC.

From some of my early experiments I think that putting a BPC with a too low number of runs reduce your chances of success.

Most max run BPC have 300 runs, and after a successfull invention they always produce 10 runs BPC, so if you put on invention a BPC with 30 run you get a 1 run BPC, if it is a 40 run you have a 66,6% chance of a 1 run BPC and 33,3% of a 2 run BPC if invention is succesful.

But if you use a 10 run BPC, if invention is successful you have a 66,6% chance of a 0 run BPC and 33,3% of a 1 run BPC. In the event of the 0 run BPC the message is the same you get for a failure.

This is only an opinion, but I formed that opinion after seeing the results of a decent number of attempted inventions with less than max run.
