Hi I am a game designer for a leading studio. I shall remain anonymous for now but I would like to provide feedback:
1. The game has a lot of potential, I was happy to support it
2. The later stages of the game are not so great: Once I hit wave 20, I've rounded up all my supply chain, I've contained the enemies to trap them into my kill zones. Now, it's just a boring task of fixing kill zones and beefing them up or adding redundancies because the enemies are just becoming stronger. Nothing changes. I think every reasonable player just sees where this is going and how pointless it is.
3. The graphics are cute. I dig the pixel... "art"... but I think you should increase the resolution a little bit and invest in better sprites, as these are quite unexciting and actually hard to see what's going on. Like, you don't see the cool parts of the guns... Or, you don't see the difference between sorter and pump, like, there's no semantics, no "mechanics".  Regardless of the resolution, the colors are boring!

Can't place the turret in the tutorial and it won't let me place iron drills anywhere that has iron, only places without iron and doesn't let me place blocks outside of  the area of my core. Please help!!! 

Honestly I'm excited for 4.0 all the new ores stuff. Hope to see it on mobile. Have it both on android and ios ( yes I payed ;) ) hope to see the new tactics 4.0 brings.

I started playing at 2.0, and the game has come a long way! Learning how everything works in 4.0 took a bit of time, but I really enjoy the new features. Being able to produce your own enemies is so fun. I also enjoy the mass driver, it's so stupid and cool at the same time. The amount of content you have added is amazing, how much new stuff did you have to code? It feels like almost a complete revamp, but I prefer it over the older versions. Can't wait for more updates! 

could you please please please tell me what the mass driver does? i can't figure it out, plz help me

when you hace two that are powered and in range of each other, items that are put into one are shot to the other, then you take the items out


your game is a piece of shit at this point... somehow the fucking pocket edition is better in almost everyway possible. we need a tutorial, we need to know what the ores are we need to know when the core is getting attacked, we need sound, we need to be able to fight back when we cant build something!! jesus Christ ive been kill like 6 time because I was trying to build something and your stupid game wont let me fight back

wow, it's almost as if this version is an incomplete alpha and none of the help text, content or UI is complete yet

it would sure be nice if the game told you that 4.0 is not representative of the final product-- perhaps it could even display a dialog at startup stating this fact in red highlighted text

oh well, guess this version is fundamentally broken because I can't find the shoot button or see the giant flashing "CORE IS UNDER ATTACK" text on the top of my screen

(seriously, if you don't like 4.0, play 3.5 until it's done, or at least read the info text that is displayed at startup instead of restating issues that I have already pointed out)

Honestly i think 3.5 is better than 4.0 becauseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee FUCKING 4.0 Is impossible

No, it might just be hard, but it's not impossible. Remember that it is in alpha.

I really like this game, and I can't stop playing this! But also, I have some proposals for you.

At first, please add some new turrets.When I build my defences with top turrets, the game begin be boring.

Also, please make more different ways (new extructors for example) to harvest reourses.

And after all, please add more ways to protect your base : for example, new variations of energetic shield, healing turret, generators etc.



This game is AWESOME. It reminds me of Factorio


You guys should have a proper forum instead on relying on Discord for everything.

A reddit or github page could do.

Since 4.0 is not finished yet, Discord is a quite proper forum. Wikies etc are coming soon.

Version 3.5 indeed was better, almost everything changed for the worse in 4.0. Why there aren't 1x1 block drills along the 2x2 ones? 2K material cap? Wtf? No explanation for anything. You can't see what you'll be getting in the future because everything is hidden until you unlock it. I hope they change their minds and make the game more like 3.5 back again and improve upon that.

Deleted post

4.0 is alpha and most descriptions will come later. There will be a tutorial in build 57, and no, the game will not be more like 3.5, however I plan on making "Mindustry 3.6".

How do I add cores to a map I'm making?

use the little green X, but you can only put one


can anyone link me the old version of mindustry

You have it here at the downloads, Mindustry 3.5-b40. For older, check GitHub.

I hope this comes to Steam soon, would be awesome.


It's coming soon.

Yes, I can't wait!



Одна из лучших игр,  которые мне по настоящему нравятся.  Игра очень увлекательная и интересная.  Жаль,  что она не так популярна, что делает её ещё лучше. 

The discord link isn't working anymore


how i can use the mass driver?

Hi San, 

They are still a little buggy, but this is how you use them. Place one mass driver, then another within the first one's range. Zooming out helps a lot with this. Then, click on the first one and select the second one, and vice versa. This will like the two of them. After that, provide power to them until their power bar reaches full power. Place conveyors going in to the first one, and place conveyors going out on the second one. When items come, they should slowly point at each other, and the first one will shoot at the second one repeatedly, items coming out of the second one after a shot is recieved.




thats a really good prototype 


i like the older version

uhh, idk?

uhh, idk?

I feel that the beta version currently used in the preview is the better version. The current one just seems to outright copy the app version. I liked the more unique animations and special characters (i.e. the little helper drone) as well as it's old design and use.

how do i make titanium

You don't.

Making titanium is a required mission in sector 2,0. How is it made? The wiki is outdated.

how can i create a  4.0  server ?

or it is possible to create a 4.0 server ?

For Windows:
Download Mindustry-server-4.0-alpha-56.jar from download page.

Create new text document in the same folder where placed file Mindustry-server-4.0-alpha-56.jar and enter next text:

java -Xmx512M -jar Mindustry-server-4.0-alpha-56.jar

save text document as .bat

Run it.

Connect to your server by specifying the IP address of your computer. Like If you dont know your IP,  open Command Promt and enter command "ipconfig". Do yo see string "IPv4-adress....."? It's your local IP-adress. Use it when you connect to your server.


P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

New version is WAY cooler for experienced players, but some blocks lack explanation. Overall I give is a 9/10. I'm glad this game is still being worked on!


My small silicon factory

Time for me to copy....OH I MEAN UH...HI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The game has changed! To the better one, I think :)

But there are many things left to do. From my - gamer - perspective, the highest problem is lack of good explanation how everything works. Icons in the game help are not very clear when you don't know all the resources (when starting the game). So now I have to create all the possible things and experiment what can be put inside which building and what will be as a result.

Second thing is that I don't know if energy system is balanced. I don't know yet, because I haven't created all the things. 

The idea of "campaign" is very interesting and probably very good, but lack of "advisor" there can be harmful for newbies.

Versions 3.0 and 3.5 of the game was much easier to understand and easier to play. This one is a very good main breaker and I want to play it more! :)

Edit: consider updating/ creating wiki pages and/or some diagrams how every building works. Or just basics? Allowing names near ore icons also is a good idea :)

Edit2: found a bug: if you build a complete conveyor bridge, it will act as infinite storage. I have tried to test the capacity, but I coudn't reach the max of it. Where is the best place for bug tracking?

when you click an item you can click he ? button. it will show what resources it takes and what it creates

as for the rest you need to experiment

Yes, but I can't read properly from icons. Also the explanations aren't clear enough. For example from help button I don't know if second drill will work without water (experiments: yes, but with lower efficiency).

There is a MAJOR BUG in Alpha 4.0, which is, there is a limit of how many resources you can have. I have been mining the dark purple ore (idk what it is) after I build my base with a big network flow (managed to use 9 inputs to the base transformed in 18 inputs - I split 3 lanes into 1 - and the damn thing clogged at the cube base where your mined items goes! This makes my 3 lane to 1 thing not working and the clogging is a mess! Looking at resources it seems the dark purple ore (have not tested any other ore) is capped at max of 2.0K and will NOT enter any more in the cube base unless you consume it and it will fill to the 2.0K again.

This is not a bug; all resources are capped at 2k capacity. If you want to store more resources near your core, use vaults.

When will this update come to Android phones?

Every build of 4.0 has been available for Android as an APK file download here on

If you're asking about the Google Play store, it'll be released to production once it's no longer in alpha/beta.

Thanks <3

Thank you for the explanation! This version (4.0 Alpha v54) is much better than the 3.5 one, it just lacks a tutorial or explanations, but I managed to learn about every block and how it works through trial and error. Great game.

Go to the Mindustry Discord server to get help how to setup a public server. This also requires port forwarding.
Edit: Woops i forgot to add the link,


Anybody got suggestions for good public servers is the only one working for me

You can go to the Mindustry Discord server for active servers which are in 4.0.

What happened to the tutorial

it got deleted due to the insane overhaul of the gameplay, its not even helpful anymore, or simply outdated.

So is there like a walkthrough or something I can use, because the game looks fun, but its hard to enjoy it when I have no idea what I'm doing.
