Now that we have begun to develop an economy here in New Unity, Commander Grant has assigned me a project: organizing our production and building efforts.
The first step is this effort is an inventory record-keeping system, so that we know what resources the colony has to work with. This record needs to be kept in a single, globally-accessible electronic doc, that can be read and edited from any anyone's tab [data tablet, for those of yall from the AdZones]. The past few days, we have been trying to pass this info face-to-face, and it has been a gabra, inefficient nightmare (or "an infic nightmare", as we number crunchers say in the TD, pronounced "infish").
So, I have made a master inventory record spreadsheet (invrec) for the colony, linked below. It has a row for each resource that we have a need to track, and a column for each colonist.
Please find the column with your name on it, and record all resources that you have. This is very important -- it will allow Grant and Gander to see at a glance what our food supplies look like, and the engineers to more ficly (ficly=efficiently, but you already got that, zhun bo?) plan our builds, so that we can not starve to death, and move out of the Bronze Age a bit sooner. (some colonists may have numbers already filled in; these were pulled from the old record. Verify that they are correct.)
Then, it is even more important that you UPDATE YOUR INVENTORY REGULARLY. Yes, it is capslock important. The invrec is not useful if the data in it is not accurate. Updating every 1--2 hours should be sufficient. At some point, this should be automated, but for now, we must do it manually.
The invrec is especially important for anyone producing food, and for our heroic and beloved miners. When the colony needs a particular resource in a hurry, we need to know who has that resource, in a hurry, which is what the invrec is for, but it doesn't work if the data isn't current. Updating only takes a few seconds.
Thanks; let's survive.
