So there are two types of BP's (Original and Copies). If you get a copy, can you use it over and over to make as many ships as you have minerals for? Or do you have to make more copies of the orginal to be able to produce more ships?

Thanks for any answers.

Originals can be "Researched" and made better. Meaning that they take less time to produce and less minerals, NOT meaning another hi slot can be added or it's top speed altered.
You can also use originals to make whatever they are, as many times as you want.


Copies are essentialy the same as originals, but you cannot copy a copy, or do research on it. But like an original, you can use it to make the product as many times as you want.


You may be wondering why not just get a copy for cheap.
If you get a copy, then you cannot make more copies, so if you go into mass production, or even just want to pop a few out really fast, then you can't.

If you just want to be self sufficient and make ammo/missles for yourself, then a copy or two of each is perfect. Larger corporations will want originals, but smaller ones or non-industry based ones will only need copies.



I hope this answers your questions, if not, post again.
