Determine if Colonia Engineers can have exclusive blueprints
No engineer provides G4 Shield Cell Bank blueprints, which is the lowest grade at which blueprints are entirely absent. We will therefore be attempting to upgrade Mel Brandon to provide them, to see if this is possible.
The first stage of this will be to get to the G3 blueprint, of course, and it is currently at G2.
Material requirements are easy at G1:
- Sulphur (trading down from Ruthenium obtained from volcanism or planet surfaces)
- Specialised Legacy Firmware (do missions to get MEF and trade down)
At G2, the requirements get more complex - Grid Resistors are relatively tricky to obtain in bulk - but the second blueprint is still fairly easy:
- Grid Resistors (higher-grade capacitors can be obtained from CZs or missions, though cross-trading from Biotech or EFCs from missions might be easier) and Chromium (trade down from Technetium)
- Specialised Legacy Firmware (trade MEF) and Conductive Components (trade Biotech Conductors from missions)
The G1 and G2 targets are set assuming that all upgrades are with that level of blueprint. In practice a mixed approach will require lower levels on both sides. Targets are slowly being reduced as upgrades are recorded.
