Blueprints are gained by...
Acquiring Blueprints from Rivals
The types of Blueprints you can obtain from a Rival will depend on the buildings they have in their city. You will only have a chance at obtaining blueprints for buildings that are in the city that you defeat.
- Eg. If you attack a Rival that has nothing but Growth Facilities in all their Districts, then you will only every obtain blueprints for Growth Facilities by attacking that player.
If you attack a player that has Pavlov Defences or Pavlov Resources, it is therefore possible to obtain blueprints for these buildings before you have defeated Francis and entered Pavlov. You cannot build buildings before you have entered the relevant Zone, so if this does occur, you must decide if you wish to hoard the blueprints until you are able to use them, or sell them so that you can make use of the Gold you will obtain from selling them.
