    simply put... none of them. crafting is an EXTREMLY expensive profession to get started in it would be best to do other activities to get a feel for the economy of the game before you even try to make anything

    the blueprints out of the tt work fine if your planning to use the item you craft yourself. If you want to craft to sell for profit you need some years worth of skill and one of the rare high value bp's. Big key is don't over-craft that will cost you quite a bit of peds.

    Crafting is not for short term in here its for long term :D

    For skilling to be a crafter your very best bet is to join a mothership skilling team repairing the ship. This gives lots of engineering skill and can help you unlock blueprint comprehension fast which will help all crafting (but not tailoring)

    dont craft unless youre ready to loose big, and i mean 1000's of dollars.

    the mothership repair was a great feature although i think its not possible anymore to repair 0 damage. Im not sure, please someone confirm.

    i think crafting makes most rage quits in game.

    wow, would not of though crafting is such a mission. Will however still try it out. Think if I do a 10 or 20 ped craft run from loot I picked up it should hopefully bear some fruit.

    Will update on my journal. Think I'm going to lose PEDs big time :(

    imo, crafting for new players is fun but totally uneconomical. your chance of getting a big hit are 1 in a million(if not more), but if u do get a hit u will get hooked. like said above, 99.99% of all crafting globals and HOFs are from those who have spent years at skilling, BP quality rating increases, and a crapton of PED in mats and time slumped in front of the crafting machine clicking forever .

    but for sure try it out because it is one leg of the 3 professions in Entropia. many professional crafters will totally answer any of your questions

    Good luck in all your adventures

    Crafting is definitely a money sink.
    Crafting for profit is not going to happen as a new player unless you get really lucky.
    I generally don't buy materials for crafting and just craft some of my loot until I have high enough skills for the decent crafting.
