So if I read this right, we're prioritizing Energy Grid Assemblies, Power Converters, and Natural Fabrics to The Oracle?
The total available doesn't drop by the amounts taken from the market though. It takes some time for the amounts to drop. Plus small amounts are usually generated to keep the amount above zero.
Good spot. We already thought about assigning some people to those long range hauls. However, keep in mind that those supplies replenish quite quickly. I don't know though how many players must buy in order for those commodities to run out of stock.
e.g. Energy Grid Assemblies - the total galactic supply at the moment is 160,000 - less than half of what is required to repair a station.
The important number isn't the total amount of a specific commodity, the important number is the difference between "amount created every 10 minutes" and "amount taken from the market in that time".The total available doesn't drop by the amounts taken from the market though.

Well, while no-one is shipping any of these it's not going to be an issue.The important number isn't the total amount of a specific commodity, the important number is the difference between "amount created every 10 minutes" and "amount taken from the market in that time".
If I remember correctly the stations produce new commodities every 10 minutes.
In short: If the stations create more of the commodity than players take away, everything is fine.
If the supply of the required commodity drops to 0 it might be a good idea to switch to a small or medium ship to grab the steady tickle that station produces instead of doing long range trips.
It all depends on how long the trip to the next station with enough supply to fill a big ship takes.
Example: Station A produces 100 units every 10 minutes. The next station is 20 minutes away. Any ship transporting less than 400 units will be ineffective on the long range route.
Getting that balance between transported cargo vs. time right can be difficult and is influenced by a lot of things.
Well, Malthus had a lab so it was expected. I had been hauling out of there on the chance that it would be attacked and thus keep the stocks at Oort a bit higher in the mean time. It seems that due to bgs reasons the stocks at any of the Aegis ports are a bit low at the moment but it shouldn't prevent work from being done (yet)*welp* Malthus seems to be gone. There goes a big source of materials.

If there are player groups that repair Obisidian Orbital due to "sentiment" that's a good thing! As we're working with a group of players that aims at repairing The Oracle I wouldn't shift priorities now. I'd rather utilize the symbolic power of Obsidian Orbital to leave this station up to those who'd like to see it repaired and focus on the "less attractive" stations.Obsidian has similar totals to The Oracle. If it starts getting supplies from a larger group due to sentiment then it may be worth redirecting this group.
