So I've often thought to myself "Boy, it sure sucks to have to buy such and such or to remember such and such for every moon base, survival stash, avatar equipment loadout, etc."
That wasn't very clear, was it? Let me start over:
Crates, bags, or other containers that come with a pre-selected assortment of item, that get assembled (up to a limit?) at a particular building (broker?), which the player or even ships can purchase whenever they need to, say, build a moon colony on short notice.
The "designs", the list of items that go into the container, would be defined on an Empire-level, so that everyone in your empire has access to it at any (broker?).
Survival backpacks (knife, hammer, shovel, pistol, rations, etc), toolboxes (2 of some tools, 1 of another, etc), and other useful definables!
