The entire mechanic of blueprint spawning/learning, in its current set up, is a complete waste of time.
It doesn’t add to gameplay. It’s not fun. It provides no real addition to the experience besides frustration.
After the 100th time you’ve recovered your necessary BPs due to wipes or server migrations, wasting literally hours upon hours, it really shines as one thing I’d rather never do.
Explain one purpose it serves to benefit the play? Seriously. Think about it.
With the now introduced tech tree (which was intended long ago), it provides the only difficulty curve this game needs.
The cosmetic Steam BPs should be the only collectable BPs.
An example of how stupid it is: I can make a working firearm, digital lock and a house by default, but I can’t craft a large chest! Makes total sense.
