Camping in the Ruins

Blueprint opening strategy

All Item bplan c.gifItem bplan c.gifConstruction Blueprint (common) Construction Blueprint (common) can be opened immediately without waiting.

For the rest, we have two major types of blueprints - normal blueprints and Small enter.gifSmall enter.gifExplorable Ruins Explorable Ruin blueprints:

  1. Normal blueprints are those found in Item bplan drop.gifItem bplan drop.gifWorn Leather Bag Worn Leather Bags, Item bplan box.gifItem bplan box.gifArchitect's Chest Architect's Chests, and after Small camp.gifSmall camp.gifCamping Camping normal R ruine.gifR ruine.gifRuins Ruins.
  2. Small enter.gifSmall enter.gifExplorable Ruins Explorable Ruin blueprints are special blueprints found in particular Small enter.gifSmall enter.gifExplorable Ruins Explorable Ruin. Each Small enter.gifSmall enter.gifExplorable Ruins Explorable Ruin blueprint has its own preset list of buildings which can be unlocked.

Normal blueprints can unlock any building projects from the whole pool, while Small enter.gifSmall enter.gifExplorable Ruins Explorable Ruin blueprints only have a preset pool of projects which can be unlocked.

When a blueprint is read, it will always try to unlock a project which can be unlocked first. If there is no project left which is lockable, it will fail and the blueprint will be wasted when you read it.

If one of those projects have been unlocked by the normal blueprint, you will have one fewer building project which can be unlocked from the ruin blueprints. Thus normally you want to hold all normal blueprints and read ruin blueprints to unlock all preset building projects first. For that reason, the practice of holding off reading normal blueprints until explorable ruins cease to yield any more of their own is preferred.

However if all projects left from the preset pool are child projects which require their parent project(s) to be unlocked first, and their parent project(s) is/are not inside the preset pool, you need to switch the preference and start reading normal blueprints until you can unlock the target parent building. Only then you can switch back and read ruin blueprints again.
