Blueprint Tweaks

BlueprintTweaks BlueprintTweaks

This mod improves Blueprint system with QoL changes, new features like force pasting, foundation blueprints and more.
List of features:
Interface changes:

  • Allow using 3rd person view in Blueprint mode.
  • Allow toggling between 3d person and planet view when in Blueprint mode using J key
  • Add paste button to Blueprint Browser window. Pressing it is equivalent to double clicking currently selected blueprint.
  • When pasting blueprint string into existing blueprint you can hold Shift key to keep description and icons
  • Preserve last open Blueprint Browser directory. Also when creating new blueprints, they will be saved in the last open directory

Change your blueprint on the fly:

  • Selectively change recipes on machines during any moment using a new panel in blueprint inspector
  • Selectively change cargo requested/provided by logistic stations in a new panel in blueprint inspector
  • Allow changing building tiers. Left-click on a building in component panel to use.
  • Allow changing belt hint icons. Left-click on a hint icon in component panel to use.


  • Allow using LaTitude/LonGitude axis lock. Use Ctrl + T/G to toggle
  • Allow changing grid snapping. Set blueprint grid size in its settings, then press Ctrl + B in desired initial position.
  • Allow to save used anchor position. New UI element will appear in the blueprint inspector, which will display current anchor.
  • Allow blueprinting on Gas Giants.
  • Allow blueprinting Foundations. Also allows copying Custom foundations color palettes. If you blueprint buildings with foundations under them, you can place blueprint where foundations are needed. Blueprint strings with this feature are compatible with vanilla strings.
  • Allow to use blueprint like selection to Dismantle buildings. You can find its button in dismantle panel.
  • Allow mirroring blueprints. Use Shift + T/G to toggle mirror in LaTitude/LonGitude axis.
  • Allow pasting assemblers with recipes which have not been unlocked yet. Assemblers with recipes that are not unlocked will not work.
  • Allow moving blueprints using drag and drop
  • Allow to undo your mistakes. Use Ctrl+Z to undo the most recent action. Use Shift+Z to redo last undone action. When new action is performed redo history is cleared. When player leaves current planet undo history is cleared. Undo is compatible with Nebula, however please make backups and report any issues encountered.

Axis lock supports: Blueprint, Construction and Reform modes
Grid snapping supports: Blueprint and Construction modes

All Keybinds are rebindable
All features can be disabled in config file located at Dyson Sphere Program/BepInEx/config/. By default everything is enabled.

This mod is fully compatible with Galactic Scale 2
This mod is fully compatible with Nebula Multiplayer Mod
Important Note: Nebula Multiplayer mod itself is NOT required. I only need its API plugin, which is separate.

More features might come in the future. If you have any feature you would like to see added, message me on Discord
