Guide for Industry Idle – How Do I Fix This? How Does This Work?

Industry Idle is a complex game with a lot of moving parts. It can be easy when you’re starting out, to feel like you’ve accidentally ruined your city due to running out of power, or fuel, or some problem that you can’t even diagnose. Trying to help in chat is complex at the best of times, and not everybody is in the discord, so I’m going to explain how a number of the functions in the game work, and also give you some tools to diagnose “Why isn’t this working?”

 

How does this work? – Warehouse

Warehouse

A warehouse is a structure that you can build if you turn on the ‘Unlock Warehouse’ policy in the Policy Center (It costs 0 policy points and doesn’t add cost to later policies). It allows you to set up shipping routes to move goods INTO the warehouse at a fuel discount based on the level of the warehouse, creating a stockpile in a better location for your other structures to draw from.

In the warehouse interface there are a few important elements. To set up a route you click the “Add Route” button and then select the source building you want to pull in items from. This will add the route to the list of routes.

The total amount of resource per second that the warehouse can take in is shown in green and increases as you level up the warehouse, and the total throughput is divided equally among each route. So in the screenshot the 500/second is being applied fully to the one route. If you added a second route, they would each input 250/second, three would be 166.6 each and so on.

By shipping items into a warehouse, you save on the fuel cost of shipping them directly to their destinations. The fuel reduction is shown here in yellow, and increases as you level up the warehouse.

Since it discounts goods moving into it, but not out from it, the ideal place to put a warehouse is right beside the destination for the goods, not the source. So if, for example you built a Steel Factory directly beside a good Iron deposit, but the closest Coal was quite far away, and you felt you were spending too much fuel on shipping the Coal, you could build a warehouse right beside the Steel Factory, set up a route from the far-away Coal Mine, and the Warehouse would bring it in at a discount, making it a nice easy 1 tile trip to go to the Steel Factory.
