Additional Facts

  • To collect a single MF Left Click it and then select the yellow "Collect ##,###" Button.
  • All MF's & Oil Pumps may be collected simultaneously by Left Clicking anyone of the them and selecting "Collect All".
  • The MF does not have to be full to be collected.
  • Once the MF has reached Full Capacity it ceases production until the player physically empties or "Collects" the stored Metal.
    • Reaching full capacity is signified by the halting of the building animation and the displaying of a large red exclamation mark above the factory.
  • Metal must be "Collected" or moved to the Metal Storage building in order to be utilized or "spent" by the player.
    • If there is insufficient room in the storage to hold all the currently produced metal only a partial portion will be transferred leaving the remaining amount in the MF.
  • The player receives XP for the all metal produced by the MF at the time it is collected.
    • The XP amount is calculated as follows : 1 xp per every 50 metal collected.
