Schematics are either pre-unlocked at beginning of the game, or unlocked by purchasing them using Bytes. Bytes are gained from Researching various found objects, or by collecting harvestables which can be found in the world. Schematics are also split into different categories and research tiers. Schematics can be unlocked as long as the player has enough bytes to purchase it.
