How to do Invention:

Invention is a Method to create a T2 BPC out of a T1 BPC.

You need the following things in order to invent a BPC:
- a T1 BPC
- 2 types of datacores
- an interface
- Optional: a decryptor
- Optional: an Item of the type of the BPC

First, the BPC:
It needs the maximum number of licensed runs for the type, for example 300 for Modules as Cargohold Expanders. The ME and PE does not change anything.

The datacores:
You can get the Datacores from R&D Agents, where you buy them for RP.
Most Datacores cost 50 RP and you can calculate the number of LP you get per day with this formula:
(!empty($user->lang['CODE'])) ? $user->lang['CODE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'CODE'))):

The type of datacores you need varies from blueprint to blueprint and they are destroyed during the Invention process.

The Interface:
You need an Interface for each BPC, there are 3 Interfaces per race, one for ships, one for Modules and one for Rigs.
These won't be destroyed during the Invention process so you can use them for multiple Inventions.
But they have a really high price (100m+, up to several 100m ISK) causing Invention to need a high starting Budget.

The decryptor: They can modify the stats and Chances of your Invention. For example make a lower ME (more material requirements) but higher Chances and more Runs. Price for these vary from a few 100k ISK up to about 300m. During the Invention process the decryptor will be destroyed.

The T1 item: A T1 item increases you chances for a successful Invention.
The better the item ist (named) the higher the chances are. Note that T2 Items can't be used. The T1 Item is destroyed during the Invention.

The Skills needed for Invention:
In order to get a good rate of successful Inventions, you need to get high Skills (level 4 or 5). The minimun skill requirements are:
Electronics 2
Electronic Upgrades 5
Engineering 2
Science 5
Hacking 2
The specific Encryption Skill (for example Amarr Encryption Methods) needed for the BPC
And the Skills you need for the datacores. For Example Molecular Engineering, minimum is level 1.

Doing the Invention
If you got those skills and Items then get to a station with Invention slots, right-click the T1 BPC and select start Invention and fill all fields with the correct Items and start the Invention and with a bit of luck you get a t2 BPC after the Invention process.

The T2 BPC doesn't have much runs, usually about 10, not as the T1 BPC and its ME is lower than 0 in most cases. Then build it and sell or use the T2 items from that BPC.

I hope this guide helps a bit with Invention.

Hello there, i would like to get a bit of Premium Time for this guide, so please vote for it, if you like it.
Greetings, Terminico

/edit: Thanks for the 2 Yays, waiting for another one then.

Well, this is actually the first guide I've ever read about invention. I'm sure there are more out there somewhere, but hell, I can't be bothered to look for them.

It's not a bad guide and all, but it would be really awesome to list things like decrypter and RdB types, as well as a bit better organization and ordering of thoughts. (As it stands, it's a little bit harder to follow.) But like I said, it did inform me a bit about invention.

Here is a link to a good guide. this website has a lot more guides in it as well. This link explains the descriptors very well and what bp's go with what items for invention boost.
