Would somebody please tell me what "Reserved" for resources when looking at the cargo of a station is?

Most oftenly it seems to mean it is being held for what it is currently building. Or maybe even what's in queue to be built.

But other times it seems it means cargo waiting for a freighter to pick it up?

Does it mean BOTH?

It definitely counts ships in the construction yards, but I think it does not count ones in queue. It also counts fuel set to be transferred to ships on a refuel mission, and I'm fairly sure it counts materials with a freighter en route to pick them up.

Hey. Thanks for the reply. That's what I thought too. But, how do you explain, I have nothing building (pirate star port), no retrofitting, no nothing, and have a lot of Reserved resources(not refueling resources) for which a freighter NEVER comes. I waited years. YEARS.

I have a theory that the game doesn't properly clear up reserves in some circumstances, such as a freighter destroyed en route, available available supply dropping below reserve before the freighter arrives, etc., but I have no idea if I'm on the right track. If you find out, let me know. =P

@mSterian if a facility has construction yards it will reserve certain resources regardless of whether it is building something. This is a big consideration if you want to build a lot of spaceports as your economy will spend a lot of time supplying the minimum reserve level resources to each facility, often to the detriment of actual construction. The reasoning here is that if you have construction yards on a facility you will probably want to build something there, and if it didn't already have a reasonable amount of supplies on hand, every time you tried to build something you would have to wait for a freighter to ship the supplies over.
