Quick Reference for recipes?

I've been looking all over trying to find a reference for what raw materials are needed for a final or intermediate product.
Could have sworn I saw it somewhere at some point, but haven't figured out where I need to navigate to look it up again.

Game loop

If there is a desire for temporary games that reset occasionally, maybe there could be a volatile quadrant in the center that people can start from if they choose, but which occasionally gets wiped out entirely by predictable gravity-wave bursts every time a black hole spirals into the galactic core.

Realistically speaking, I'm not sure how devastating those would even be from a few lightyears away, I'm just using it as a mechanic for resetting a region of the galaxy for players who want rounds with an end in sight.

Trade route orders, short form

Weylin

A <---> B trade routes seem like common orders to give, so I think a specific order type for a trade route could be done, maybe submitting the order places the 5 necessary basic orders for it to run.

-Pickup/Buy Coordinates
-Dropoff/Sell Coordinates
-Product to deliver
-Loop # or blank for infinite

Once you hit submit it places down 5 orders starting from the order number, and you can insert other things if you need to.

Where did you hear about Barons of the Galaxy?

I came across it on Reddit while looking for an alternative to OGame (Seriously, I was getting sick and tired of having to set 3am alarms to catch all these night raids)
I believe the Reddit post was by Dread, and he made the game, this game, for the same reasons I wanted to quit OGame.

Actually, for a while, I was tossing around the idea of making my own browser based game like this, but I just don't have the free time to want to deal with that much work.

Right now would be the perfect time to be mass-producing popcorn, but alas.

Split productions

Weylin

Would it be possible to allow for single buildings to split their production power across several products?
For example, you could have a single x33 construction factory make 110 basic, heavy, and complex materials every turn, if you set it as such.

I'm not sure what impact this would have on the game economy, since you could do more with less logistics. The alternative, though, is just changing productions regularly to keep things balanced, but it's not ideal.

Start ships with no upgrades

If you make a mistake on the first upgrade, or want to change it later, there really isn't a way to.

Maybe instead of the current system, we could have an upgrade tab with 10 drop-down menus, so you can slot in which upgrades you want, hit "upgrade" or "refit" and the cost and turns will be calculated.

This has been suggested before.
I think most of us would rather have programmable orders for buildings like we have for units so it would automatically change production and selling base on a schedule.

I was thinking about suggesting this instead, but wasn't sure how much an improvement orders would be over split production, unless those orders could have conditionals, like "if less than 50,000 basic metals, produce basic metals at 100%"

I'm not sure I'm understanding your issue.
As soon as you upgrade a vehicle to lvl 2, you get the option to 'downgrade' any of the existing upgraded stats
Errors in upgrade selection are 100% correctable.

When you first build a ship, it asks you to choose an upgrade which cannot be removed, so for example I have +20% firepower at Level 1, but want to change it all over to another stat, it's impossible.
