Is it possable to make your own or develop new elements by researching spacial anomaly and combining them in this vast universe and applying it to create new ships , weapons, ammunition and other R&D project to apply it in a industry capacity , And if so is it also possible to build a space station that would be solely focused towards achieving these goals ?

Researching new things wouldn't be possible in any game. The game developers must first code all the stuff that you'd be "inventing", otherwise it won't look right in-space and won't function properly.

In this game, "research" is the activity of improving blueprints so they produce with less wasted materials, and "invention" is the activity of coming up with a blueprint copy to manufacture Tech 2 ships or items by taking apart the equivalent Tech 1 base items and using some "research" tools in a "lab."

Nothing new is invented, but enough people do it to supply the entire market in-game with T2 ships and modules. They're all manufactured from 'invented' blueprints.

Yes, but there's nothing especially new and unique in the game.

You can build your own space station, these days it will either be a Citadel or an Engineering Complex. There's a bit of documentation out there about them but I'll let you discover the nightmare on your own :D

These articles may be of use to you in finding out about invention and research:


In general once you know the term you're looking for you can use it along with "eve online" to find the articles you need. Those three were top hits on Google for "eve online invention" and "eve online research" and "eve online reverse engineering".

It's a computer game, not magic.

Keep your eye on the Science & Industry forum if you want more tips. People discussing things there all the time.

Well technically when you fit your ship, you kinda "invent" a new design from hundreds of different modules, but ye, thats pretty much as far as you can go in computer game nowdays.
