Foundry Information

After restoring the mine and excavating various ores, foundries are needed to make ingots for various uses, such as to upgrade factories/trains/islands at the Academy of Industry or purchase decorations.
You can also purchase ore from the dealer at the city market to smelt in the foundries.

You can build a maximum of 3 foundries

Making Ingots

Foundry Guide.png
Help foundry.png
  • Unlike factories, the foundry can only make 1 ingot at a time and cannot be upgraded.
    • However, the Efficient Smelting booster reduces smelting time by 50%. To make use of the booster, have plenty of ores to use the foundries over 2 days.
  • If you have 5 of any ore in the warehouse you can create 1 ingot. Drag out the ingot you'd like to produce at the bottom. After the producing time, tap the foundry worker to collect it.
  • If you don't have enough ores the number is shown in red meaning you have to buy or excavate more ores in the mine.

Ingot Information

All ingots are unlocked at level 21.

Ingots Uses

  • Upgrade factories in the Academy of Industry to make them more efficient, obtain extra shelves, and earn more coins/xp for filling orders with goods.
  • Upgrade trains and ships to reduce travel time by up to 50%.
  • Sending off ships with ingots increases the chance of obtaining rarer goods and treasure chests.
  • Building the Academy of Industry.
  • Completing the Classic Car Collection decoration.
  • Completing the Spaceport decoration.
  • Exchange ingots (and jewelry) with cash at the helicopter pad. (More info)

Note: Using ingots for ships in the beginning is not recommended because upgrades are more important. If you are at a much higher level with many upgrades then it's your choice where to use ingots.
