Hello,

I'm quite new to this game and would like to say great job. It's been very enjoyable and I hope it has a long development path ahead.

I do have two suggestions with regards to Distribution Centers though, and am very eager to hear any feedback.

I'm finding it slightly difficult to manage my orders without critically analyzing my production, especially overnight. I think this could be largely solved with 1 change and 1 addition.

1) On single frequency orders, have the the Qty of the order go down as it's filled, or perhaps show how much is filled per order without clicking on each one individually.

2) Add an option to sell all but X amount of a resource, to make sure persistent orders don't eat into resources you need for tier 2 or 3 production while you're not able to monitor it.

It's quite possible I am trying to manage this in some backwards way, so I would recommend any suggestions or tips for how to better manage orders, especially when I can't login for a day or more.

I feel like number two would be really handyas well. I'm kinda thinking along the lines of 'warehousing' resources, making them only able to be picked up as cargo (or even having the ability to specify what can be done with it). If they got priority filling from incoming resources, it'd be sweet as.

Good ideas smile

I came here to request this feature, but found it was already suggested. =D
As a clunky work around, I'm going to try dedicating Transports to load x-amount and then sell. The goal being to sell X volume when I have at least Y total.

I suggest to improve distribution centers to

a) set a price at which they stop selling, so that stock can be used to maintain demand levels in cooperation in multiple towns without constant micro-management

and

b) increase their value by setting a same-planet location where they automatically draw their stock from. This would make them more valueable - they consume logistics score, and could do a bit more. This is more ease of play than really necessary, over-stocking is cheap.
