Items disappearing during mission

So I'm a new Eve Online player. I've never played anything with the same controls and a similar gaming topic.

Anyway, every time I start a mission, of which I've only done few, my items seem to disappear. How so? For example, I started the first mission of the Industry career agent guy, which consists in mining Veldspar. For some reason I forgot to mount on the ship the recently-given-to-me miners and modules. After the start of the mission (I had only gotten out of my hangar or whatever the Gallante Federation university is) and when I turned around and entered the hangar again, I only had the miner that the guy had given to me.

Why does this happen? Is it normal? Can I fix it?

Plz help guysss. <3

And another thing. If, after the mission ends, I go back to my item hangar at the Center for Advanced Sciences, will I find and be able to equip these items that I've apparently lost?

ISD moved your thread to a support section of the forum.

You can help people troubleshoot this if you can provide additional information. The name of the mission would be first.

You will find a number of different support websites for mission running in Eve. Try googling the mission name (exactly as it is stated, you can copy/paste it;)

You can see what the objective is, what items are given/received and any additional requirements. Some mission items will disappear after the mission is completed, other items will be permanent. All missions are timed and need to be completed before they expire.

Another thing that can help is doing a screen capture (typically 'PRTSCRN' or 'Print Screen' button), which will create an image in your Eve folder ...\documents\Eve\Capture\Screenshots. You can upload this to imgur or another site and share the link.

Thanks Wanda. Anyway I've gone around and I think I messed up some things too. I haven't advanced much in the game, so I might as well start again. Thx though <3

You will find it like that, this game is about choices and changes. Many do-overs will happen as you learn and grow.
