More or less than bargained for

We all know that I’m bad in logistics. So bad in fact, that when I decide to create a certain amount of T2 items, and I finally calculated everything I need. I still forget things. Despite the fact that I actually use said calculation, have it sitting right next to me when checking the market and making orders.

And yet every single time I forget something in my whole process. Last time I made about 1000 T1’s to build further into T2’s.. I thought I had everything, I had the materials, the product, everything except the one vital part that I didn’t think of at the time.

I had forgotten to turn on my invention process for the BPC’s… You can imagine the facepalm I made at that time.

Now we’re a while later and I’m happily chugging along in my manufacturing process, about 100 products get made every other day and I invent enough to keep the lines going.

It’s only one character, 10 research and 10 manufacturing jobs, but it keeps me very busy.
I can’t imagine what it would be like if I had multiple characters creating things. Can’t imagine what else I’d forget.
“Request for docking bay, I forgot a few things”

So tell me, what is the one thing you always forget? Are there times you go to a trade hub with something in mind, and then come back empty handed, or with more than you needed, but not actually the one thing you were there for?

  • I used to do this all the time. It's sad but the cure was a folder in the Market quickbar called "Shopping List". I drag the items I need in there and add a note saying how many I need. I have the same for copying and invention with folders named "To Copy" and "To Invent". Desperate times!

  • When I was doing production, my biggest problem was just forgetting the product I wanted to move in the station. Which was a very timely mistake to make when arriving at my destination in my snail's pace freighter.
