I'd like to know if it is somehow possible to include Concrete in a blueprint. When I select an area with my blueprint, the ground is ignored. Do i need to hold a special key, or is it just not possible (yet)?


Yes, you need to concrete some empty piece of land (with no buildings on it) and then blueprint it. Next use it as a regular blueprint (even under already built factories et al)

  • Ah, thanks. That should help. So there is no way to include it? – Otto V. Apr 15 '16 at 8:53
  • @O.Vollbrecht No, there is not. Frustratingly, it used to be included in blueprints, but an update (not sure which one) changed that. – duskwuff Apr 15 '16 at 22:30

You need to ghost the concrete. Then they will be included.

    @Roman hold shift while placing, Then you will place a ghost image for construction bots to finish laying down. It's handy for extending your inventory while expanding your base. – ratchet freak Apr 18 '16 at 22:33
  • Note to Googlers, make sure you also tick Include tiles in the blueprint screen if you have selected tiles and any other sort of item in the blue print. e.g. walls, gun turrets. – MickyD Dec 5 '17 at 4:22

In 0.13 You can have blueprint containing both terrain and machines, you can just select whether you want to include only terrain, machines or both by the checkboxes.
