Posted this in admin help but I'm not sure if it's the right place. Please feel free to lock/destroy the incorrect one.
According to the rules page
The NPCs who will build the station are selected from NPCs of the type Builder who are at your location, they don't need to be in your party.
However when I set to begin construction on a station I was not allowed to begin until the NPCs were in my party. I was assigned as their supervisor and was in the same room as them. I had 25 to start, supposedly the max you can put on a station. Before I added them to my party, the station construction menu would display that there were no builders present. Then I add the max of 12 to my party and try again. Bam, those 12 only show up.
Is this a bug or .. what? I now have 13 extra builders, increased construction costs due to the number of builders used and longer to wait before I can even store these builders somewhere for the client. Slightly frustrating, can someone help out with this please.
No I can see no event assigning me as supervisor though according to my boss he assigned them to me days ago. I see that they are under my supervision, but no event for them being assigned to me even though my event log goes back to day 255.
Actually, Mal, there is the ability to add NPCs to your party if you are capable of setting yourself as supervisor. The change may not have been adequately documented to the rules. With us not knowing your privileges levels, we of course just guess at the most likely issues.

Aha gotcha. I'm not even sure what privs I have myself. Given that I can see no event for them being assigned to me I guess they were not assigned to me and that when I added the 12 to my party they got assigned automatically?
Without being able to view the logs of when the NPCs were assigned I'm kinda just turning my wheels I guess. *shrugs*
*edit* And thanks to those who helped me try to figure this stuff out, I don't like getting stuff wrong especially when it isn't my money going into it.
