had time to catch up on vids finally.

I agree, I think that having an idle time maybe in parethesis for example “Fit Body (5m/h)” in the build window for each section would be amazing for troubleshooting. so its idle for 5 minutes every hour, and compare it to other things and you can easily figure out which is the worst. the only ui really needed is a list that you can organize by min / max idle time per category but maybe you can do that with the existing build ui? maybe hovering over the parethesis or clicking on it highlights the section and centers it in your view.

also yeah about the finances, it would be great to have a breakdown of what is being imported vs what is being sold and how much money you are saving by building something locally so that you can figure out how long it takes to get the investment of building the stations required to meet the demand of your exports. then you can know how valuable a product is not just based on the sale price but because its easier to expand the line and get the investment back faster, whereas doing it differently may take ages to see a return and if sales decline could lead to a bad situation, depends on how risky you play the game I guess.
