Blueprints(Large)

Blueprints are an alternate way to research some technologies as opposed to learning them at a Research Bench. Blueprints allow your faction to automatically learn the tech associated with it and may be needed to unlock other techs that are learned through the research bench. The tradeoff to the new system is that while research times for these technologies are instantaneous you have to hunt down the blueprints, which are spread out across the world among the various factions.

Types of BlueprintsEdit

There are currently three types of blueprints in Kenshi: Construction, Weapons, and Armour and Clothing

Armour and Clothing Edit

Armour and Clothing blueprints can be bought from Armour, Clothing and Hat Traders with each faction having certain blueprints. Unlike Construction and Weapon blueprints, Armour and Clothing blueprints unlock the lowest level of gear (currently Prototype). Additional research is required for each subsequent grade. For example, if you buy and use blueprints for both the Assassins Rags and Ninja Rags they will both unlock the Prototype grade versions. If you then research Shoddy Grade for Ninja Rags, Assassins Rags will still be prototype grade until you research it's next level.
