Not sure if this is a bug or a feature.

I'm finding in pre-warp games that resources are quite low, and it takes some juggling to make sure I have what I need. However, a particular problem I've had, which has pretty much wrecked all my pre-warp games so far, is that constructors will set off to build things (e.g., a gas mining station) without first taking all the resources they need to complete the build.

After they arrive I get a message, such as "Construction stalled due to resource shortage: steel".

What's even more bizarre is that I'm not short of steel, and, as far as I know, never have been short of steel.

Any ideas?

Edit: I should clarify I'm playing an edited start which has far fewer starting resources, but as far as I can see I still have sufficient resources.

Possibly low storage space on your constructors, leading to them not being able to carry the resources...?

Hmmm, now why didn't I think of that? Pretty obvious in hindsight.

I think you're probably right. I'll try again with more space on the constructors.

Thanks for the help :-)

Another potential solution would be to decrease the size of the mining stations.

Note though that if the constructor ships become stuck for lack of resources, a freighter( or several) will eventually come by with the needed stuff. This can take a while however, the private sector is anything but prompt.
