Updated Blueprint Details

I’ve been a trifle remiss in posting of late, especially with the big changes which have come out lately. Sorry about that.

However, I have kept on top of getting the SDE conversions out, including the blueprint details, yanked out of the new blueprints.yaml file, and shoved into appropriate database tables. The good news is, they’re a lot easier to work with than the old versions. The not so good news is, I’ve not been back porting them into MS SQL server, so that’s a step you’ll have to manage yourself (Should be pretty easy, tbh. If you have trouble, give me a yell, and I’ll write something up)

The Tables:


This isn’t actually a new table. it’s just handy for knowing which activity id is which actual activity. such as 1 is manufacturing.


If you need to know how long it takes to do something, this is your table. Blueprint type id,  activityid, time in seconds to do it. This is a time unmodified by TE, so you’ll be reducing it.


This is the core table for most of you good folk. blueprint type id, activity id, material id, quantity, and if it’s consumed. With the changes coming in phoebe, consume is deprecated. I’m leaving it in, set to 1 for everything, so things won’t break, but it’ll go away in time.


For invention and reverse engineering. No longer do you need to create a table, CCP provide all the information.


The outputs from a blueprints, with its various activities. Handy, when you want to be able to determine what is invented from what. Also includes the number of items created in a batch, or the number of runs from invention and reverse engineering.


This one will be going away. Prephoebe, it let you know what you could reverse engineer from what, race wise. That’s no longer needed.


The skills to do each activity.


I needed somewhere to keep the maxProductionLimit value. That’s what this table is for.


As you can see, everything is a lot simpler to query now, everything tied to the blueprint type id, rather than to the final product. In the examples below, I’m using expanded Cargohold IIs. 1320 is the blueprint, 1319 is the actual thing.

select typeName,materialTypeID,quantity
from industryActivityMaterials iam
join invTypes on (iam.materialTypeID=invTypes.typeID)
where activityid=1 and iam.typeid=1320
To make something.

select typename,materialTypeID,iam.quantity
from industryActivityMaterials iam
join industryActivityProducts iap on (iap.typeid=iam.typeid)
join invTypes on (iam.materialTypeID=invTypes.typeID)
where iam.activityid=8 and iap.activityid=8 and iap.producttypeid=1320
To invent the blueprint to make them. This gives the materials for the invention, but not the required blueprint. To get that, you could just pull iam.typeid.



The formulas for using all these figures have been drawn together by Qoi, in this forum post https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=362493 which is handy. The core one is:

quantity after adjustment= max(runs,ceil(round((quantity(1-(ME/100))(1/(100-facility bonus))(1-(team bonus 1/100))(1-(team bonus 2/100))),2)))

The round, in case you’re curious, is there to eliminate a pesky floating point rounding error, which leads to some materials being 1 too high.
