FAQ

  • I have a problem with the game. Who can help me?

    E-mail us at community@idleminertycoon.com – we’ll investigate and help you further 🙂 It will be very helpful if you can send us some screenshots of your issue plus as many details as possible.

  • I have great ideas for the game! How can I share them?

    Please just send them directly to community@idleminertycoon.com! We would love to hear them!

  • Which devices can I play this game on?

    Idle Miner Tycoon is available for devices with Android (version 4.1 and up) and iOS (version 8.0 and up).

  • Can I save my game progress? Can I load my progress from my old phone?

    Yes! You just have to link your Google Play (Android) or Gamecenter (iOS) account in the game Settings menu.

    You can also easily transfer your game progress to another device:
    1) Log in with the same Google Play / Game Center account on the new device.
    2) Click on “Settings” and then under “Cloud Savegame”, click on “Load from Cloud”.
    3) A panel will appear to show the progress saved in the cloud and the progress on your phone. You can decide which to keep.
    4) If you choose to load from the cloud, that progress will be downloaded for you to continue playing.

    Note: Please bear in mind that it is not possible to transfer your game progress from Android to iOS or vice versa.

  • I lost my progress! / I lost my account!

    Do not worry! It will be possible to restore your savegame, if:
    – you had a working internet connection
    – you were connected to your Google Play / Game Center account on your device
    – you confirmed in the game settings menu that your Google Play / Game Center account showed as green and “Connected” or “Linked”

    Simply open the game settings menu by pressing the gear icon on top right corner of the screen. Afterwards, scroll down a bit and press the “Load from Cloud” button. This should recover your lost save, if the above requirements were met.

    If this does not work and you need more help, please send us an e-mail so we can help you as soon as possible: community@idleminertycoon.com

  • Can I move my game from Android to iOS? Or from iOS to Android?

    Sadly it’s not possible to transfer your save game from iOS to Android (or vice-versa) as both devices use completely different cloud systems.

  • I want to reset my game! How can I do this?

    You could try Prestige! This will reset your mine so you have to build everything again, but you keep your Cash, Super Cash and other mines. You then get to rebuild from the beginning, while earning more income than before.

    Otherwise, you could uninstall and reinstall the game and then choose not to load your cloudsave. If you play on Android, you could also create a new Google Play account.

  • How can I change my connected Facebook account?

    To change your connected Facebook account, you will have to go to your Facebook Settings first:
    Log in to Facebook ► Account Settings ► Apps ► Idle Miner Tycoon ►Remove App. Afterwards, you can connect your game to a new Facebook account.

  • Do I have to pay to play the game?

    No, it’s completely free! However, you can spend money on extra items in the in-game shop if you want.

  • I had problems with a purchase! / I want a refund!

    If you have purchase problems, please contact us directly as soon as possible: community@idleminertycoon.com

    If you require a refund, please do also send us a message in case there is a quicker and more appropriate way for us to address your concerns: community@idleminertycoon.com

  • I purchased some boosts / an offer with boosts and I didn't receive them!

    When you buy a boost in the shop with Super Cash, or when you receive one from a shop package, it is stored in your inventory.
    You can find your inventory next to the shop button, bottom left. It looks like a golden boost token.

    You can then choose when you want to activate your boost – simply click on it and confirm that you want to use it.

    If you have any further concerns for a purchased boost, please send us an e-mail to community@idleminertycoon.com

  • How do I play Idle Miner Tycoon?

  • How can I earn money when the app is closed?

    You need to have hired managers in your mine shafts, elevator and warehouse. Then you will earn money even when your app is closed – this is the so-called “Idle Cash”.
    Idle Cash is the amount of cash your miners collect for you when you are not actively playing our game. Once you start the game again after a break, you can collect your Idle Cash and it will automatically be added to your normal Cash.

  • What in-game currencies are there?

    Cash: The total amount of money you have on the first island (Grass Continent).
    Ice Cash: The total amount of money you have on the second island (Ice Continent).
    Fire Cash: The total amount of money you have on the third island (Fire Continent).
    Remember: collect money from all mines to increase your Cash!
    Idle Cash: The amount of money you earn in a second while the game is closed on the first island.
    The Ice Idle Cash and Fire Idle Cash work the same way.

    Super Cash: You get this by leveling up your mine shafts, surface stations, and from the daily rewards! Use it to buy boosts from the store to progress even faster! It can be spent throughout the entire Idle Miner world.

    Shards: The total amount of money you have on the Mainland.
    Gems: Can be obtained by finishing a Mainland Mine and can be used to purchase Super Managers! (Also, coming soon: use Gems to upgrade them and unlock their passive abilities!)

  • How can I get more in-game Cash?

    “If you want or need more in-game currency, you can either buy through the in-game store or you can participate in our social media giveaways!

    Just use the social media like-buttons in our game to follow our pages and then you’ll stay up-to-date on the latest giveaways. You can do this by opening your game and taking a look at your Idle Miner Tycoon settings menu (gear icon at the top right of your screen).”

  • How do I spend my Super Cash?

    Super Cash can be spent in our in-game store, which is the first icon bottom left. You can use your hard-earned Super Cash to buy boosts and Instant Cash to help you progress faster! You can also use it to speed things up across the entire Idle Miner world.

  • What do the numbers mean? (1aa, 1ab, 1ac, etc.)

    The in-game currency system is set up like this:

    K = 1,000
    M = 1,000,000
    B = 1,000,000,000
    T = 1,000,000,000,000
    aa = 1,000,000,000,000,000
    ab = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000
    ac = etc.

    We use this system to make big numbers easily recognizable and comparable.

  • What are the different boosts for?

    2x Idle Cash Forever: After buying this item you get double Idle Cash forever in all mines.
    2x Income Forever: After buying this item you get double normal Cash forever in all mines.
    Income Boosts: The boosts from the Shop give you 2x or 10x boosts on Cash and Idle Cash in all mines on all continents. You can also win other boosts like 20x from Expeditions, Daily Rewards and Event Mines. Each Income Boost you use is added to your currently active boosts.
    Ad Boost: If you watch adverts via the button at the bottom of the screen, your Cash and Idle Cash in your current mine will increase for a short period of time. This boost is added to your currently active boosts.
    Instant Cash: When you use an Instant Cash item, you instantly get the Idle Cash from all of your mines on one continent (including all boosts except the permanent 2x Idle Cash).

    If you click on the small ? symbol under your Cash or Idle Cash, you will see your currently active boosts and how they interact with each other.

  • I watched an ad but didn't receive the boost?

    First, check your boost overview. You can open it by tapping the small question mark under your Cash (at the top of the screen) when a boost is active. If this doesn’t how your ad boost, then please report the ad which caused the problem to our support team and send them some screenshots if possible: community@idleminertycoon.com

  • How do limited offers work?

    Every day you will see different shop offers advertised by little icons on the left of your screen. These offers are only available for a certain amount of time, then they will disappear. You can see the timer counting down to when the offer ends both on the icon and in the shop.

    The boosts and Instant Cash items you can get in these offers will be stored in your inventory. Click on the golden boost token displayed next to the in-game shop to see your boosts and activate them.

  • How does the Daily Delivery work?

    You can buy the Daily Delivery offer in the in-game shop. With this offer you claim a small amount of Super Cash every day you log in until it’s all gone. The amount of Super Cash in the Daily Delivery is equal to 30 days of logins.

    Don’t worry about missing out on a day, because the system works similarly to our login bonus – you do not lose anything if you don’t log in for a day, you can just postpone claiming that reward until the next time you log in.

  • How do I change my username?

    You can access your username by clicking the “Play with Friends” icon next to the settings button in the top right corner of the screen. There you can see and edit your username if you so desire.

  • What are the maximum levels?

    You can buy up to 30 mine shafts in each mine, and each mine shaft can be leveled up to 800. The warehouse and the elevator can each be leveled up to 2400.

  • How big is the Idle Miner world?

    Currently you can play with 15 mines (+ Mainland Mines) and there will be more in future!

    5 Grass Continent Mines: Coal, Gold, Ruby, Diamond, Emerald
    5 Ice Continent Mines: Moonstone, Amethyst, Crystal, Jade, Sapphire
    5 Fire Continent Mines: Amber, Topaz, Sunstone, Platinum, Obsidian
    Mainland Mines

  • How does the Prestige system work?

    Prestige will reset your mine so you play it from the beginning, but it will have a much higher multiplier which means you will earn a lot more money when upgrading the mine again.
    You can Prestige a mine 5 times in total, each time you will get an even higher multiplier.
    To Prestige a mine, you need to spend some Cash. The cost is displayed on the Prestige pop-up each time, so make sure that you have enough Cash left to quickly get back to where you were before.
    When you Prestige, you will keep the rest of your Cash (after paying the Prestige fee), plus your Super Cash and other mines.

  • My mine has started from the beginning but I still have all my Cash! What happened?

    You most likely used the game’s “Prestige” feature. This will reset your mine so you play it from the beginning, but it will have a much higher multiplier which means you will earn a lot more money when upgrading the mine again.

    To quickly get back to where you were before, simply buy as many mine shafts as you can, then upgrade your Elevator and Warehouse so that their output matches the production of your most advanced mine.

  • I used the Prestige function but it didn't let me keep all my Cash! Why?

    Whilst you do get to keep your leftover Cash after prestiging a mine, you first have to use some existing Cash to pay for the Prestige reset itself. The cost is displayed at the bottom left when opening the Prestige option.

    When activating Prestige for a mine, make sure you will have enough Cash left after paying the Prestige price so that you can build it back up again quickly.

  • How does the Ice Continent work?

    You need 7.37ah to unlock the Ice Continent.
    The currency you collect there is called Ice Cash and is only valid on the Ice Continent. (Super Cash works throughout the whole Idle Miner world.)
    The Ice Continent includes 5 mines: Moonstone (unlocks when you unlock the Continent), Amethyst (costs 76ab to unlock), Crystal (costs 6ad to unlock), Jade (costs 245ae to unlock) and Sapphire (costs 245ag to unlock).
    Everything else works the same way as on the other Continents.

  • How does the Fire Continent work?

    You need 132ah to unlock the Fire Continent.
    The currency you collect there is called Fire Cash and is only valid on the Fire Continent. (Super Cash works throughout the whole Idle Miner world.)
    The Fire Continent includes 5 mines: Amber (unlocks when you unlock the Continent), Topaz (costs 76ab to unlock), Sunstone (costs 6ad to unlock), Platinum (costs 245ae to unlock) and Obsidian (costs 245ag to unlock).
    Everything else works the same way as on the other Continents.

  • How does the Event Mine work?

    Event Mines are short-term mines with special themes, they usually run just for 3 days. You complete objectives in the themed mine to win rewards at the end of the event.
    In each Event Mine you can win badges which are displayed in the Event Badges island on your world map. You can earn a Participation Badge, Bronze Badge, Silver Badge or Gold Badge.
    To see the latest Event Mine, you must have the latest version of the game and you must have unlocked the 5th mine shaft in the Coal Mine.
    At the end of the event you can go into the Event Mine to claim your rewards. If the next Event Mine arrives before you claim your previous rewards, they will be automatically sent to your inventory.

  • How can I open chests?

    You can open Chests as soon as you have opened mine shaft 10. Your chests can be seen either by clicking on the chest icon top left of your screen, or by going to the world map and clicking on the “Collectibles” island. Your chests will be shown to the left of the “Buy” option.

  • What are the ``Collectibles`` which I get from chests?

    Every time you log in to the game or watch an advertisement, you have the chance to win a chest. The chests contain collectible cards which give you bonuses in your mines.

    Chests come in 4 different rarities: Common, Rare, Epic and Legendary. You have a higher chance of getting cards which match the rarity of the chest itself.

    You activate the bonus by clicking on the card you wish to use and then “”Activate”” bottom right. You can change your chosen card at any time, and collecting more of the same card will eventually level it up so you can get more of a bonus.
    You can view your cards and your unopened chests by clicking on the “”Collectibles”” island. Be sure to always compare the bonuses on your cards as they level up, so you can choose the one you like best.

  • What are Skillpoints? What is the Research island?

    Skillpoints come in three types: green (for bonuses in your mines), blue (for progress and efficiency bonuses) and red (for manager bonuses). You can get them as a Daily Reward, win them as Event Mine rewards or in Expeditions, or buy them in the in-game shop.

    On the Research island you can choose how to use the Skillpoints you collect. When you spend Skillpoints on something here, you will get a specific bonus, for example “”Your Ruby Mine generates x% more income””.

    You can reset your Skillpoints at any time if you want to spend them on something different instead – just click the refresh icon top right in the Research menu and spend some Super Cash to start over again.

  • Why did I have to pay twice to unlock a barrier and get a new mine shaft?

    While working your way down the mine, you sometimes have to first pay to unlock the “barrier” that is blocking the way. After this is done you have to pay the normal price to unlock the next mine shaft. This happens at mine shaft 11 for example – you have to unlock a barrier with Cash and then open the new shaft with more Cash.

  • How can I play with friends?

    To add friends, you have to open the “”Play With Friends”” panel (the happy miner at the top right of the screen). If you are connected to Facebook you will see your Facebook friends that play the game.

    To add new ones, you just have to tap on the button “”Invite””, then you will be given options for inviting people.

    In the “”Play With Friends”” panel you will see a maximum of 20 friends (because these 20 give you a 100% income boost). However, you can add an unlimited number of friends, and always join their Expeditions!

  • What are the strange letters I can see on some of my mines / mine shafts?

    The letters you are seeing on your mine and in your shafts indicate that one of your friends has currently progressed to that particular mine and that particular shaft. The letters are your friend’s initials are shown if he (or she) hasn’t chosen a profile picture. This way you always know where exactly your friends are currently mining!

  • What are Expeditions?

    Expeditions are a great way to play with friends and/or earn rewards. You need to be connected to the internet to use this feature.

    You can start your own Expedition or join a friend’s by going to the “”Expeditions”” island in the game. You can get Common, Rare, Epic or Legendary Expeditions, and you are offered 3 at a time to choose between. You can also reroll the options once a day to try and get something better.

    If friends join an Expedition together, the time required to complete the Expedition will decrease for every friend that joins. When an Expedition is complete, everyone who took part can click to claim their rewards before starting another one!

    If you are having trouble with Expeditions, make sure that you are using a stable internet connection and that you are connected to Google Play Games / Game Center (you can check this in the game settings menu).

  • My Facebook score is not increasing anymore!

    Your score is determined by your most advanced mine and your deepest mine shaft in that mine.

    If you used Prestige in a mine recently, then your score will only increase when you once again reach the deepest mine shaft you previously unlocked in that mine.

  • My elevator isn't collecting resources from all of my mine shafts! Why?

    The Elevator automatically returns to the surface once it is full of resources. If this is happening very quickly and the bottom mine shafts are not being emptied, please try upgrading the Elevator a little bit so that it can carry more. Do not forget to also upgrade your Warehouse!

  • How do the Mainland Mines work?

    The Mainland Mines can be opened and closed at any time (except for the first time that you play the first one, which you need to complete in order to close it).

    Each Mine has some objectives, and you can get the rewards you achieved only when you close the mine. If you complete a mine (all 30 of the shafts unlocked and to lvl 800, plus Elevator and Warehouse to lvl 2400), you will unlock the next Mainland Mine.

    You complete mines of varying difficulties to earn different kinds of Gems. The Mainland Mines and their rewards are categorized by their difficulty and have varying purposes.

    – With the Gems from the “”Easy”” mines, you can hire Super Managers at the Super Manager Beach. You can play the Easy mines when you unlock the Mainland.
    – With the Gems earned in the “”Medium”” mines, you will be able to upgrade the Super Managers (coming soon!). You can play the Medium mines when you unlock the Ice Continent.
    – With the Gems from the “”Hard”” mines, you can unlock the Super Managers’ passive abilities (coming soon!). You can play the Hard mines when you unlock the Fire Continent.

  • How can I get Super Managers?

    You can hire Super Managers once you have unlocked the Mainland Mines. You should have enough Cash to do this after you have reached the Gold Mine. In these Mainland Mines you complete objectives to earn Gems.

    If you complete a Mainland Mine (all 30 of the shafts unlocked and to lvl 800, plus Elevator and Warehouse to lvl 2400), you will collect the maximum amount of Gems and unlock the next Mainland Mine.

    You complete mines of varying difficulties to earn different kinds of Gems. The Mainland Mines and their rewards are categorized by their difficulty and have varying purposes.

    – With the Gems from the “”Easy”” mines, you can hire Super Managers at the Super Manager Beach. You can play the Easy mines when you unlock the Mainland.
    – With the Gems earned in the “”Medium”” mines, you will be able to upgrade the Super Managers (coming soon!). You can play the Medium mines when you unlock the Ice Continent.
    – With the Gems from the “”Hard”” mines, you can unlock the Super Managers’ passive abilities (coming soon!). You can play the Hard mines when you unlock the Fire Continent.

  • How can I upgrade Super Managers?

    Leveling up the Super Managers is a feature that we are currently working on, and as such is not currently possible but will be very soon!

  • Why can't I use the Super Manager I just hired?

    Super Managers can only be assigned to certain jobs. Consider them to be highly skilled managers in a specific task.

    Some Super Managers can only be assigned to the mine shafts, others to the warehouse. Try assigning your Super Manager to a different position and/or buy a new, randomly chosen Manager!

  • How and why should I unlock the Gold Mine?

    The Gold Mine will produce substantially more money for you! And you will still keep your Coal Mine if you open the Gold Mine, so you can play in both mines.
    You need 76.8ab to unlock the Gold Mine on the world map (found by clicking on the icon bottom right).
    The best way to reach the Gold Mine is to make sure you upgrade your mine shafts, but your elevator and warehouse too. Also, hire managers in all open slots to speed things up. This way you will reach the Gold Mine in no time.

  • The barrier I am unlocking says it will take 30 days! What happened?

    Did you change the time on your phone recently while playing?

    Please try turning the time forward again, by however much is displayed in the game (e.g. barrier unlocked in 30 days, turn the time forward 30 days). If you check the game, this should have fixed the immediate issue.
    Then, please turn your device time back to what it currently should be. If you still have problems, contact us at community@idleminertycoon.com

  • Where can I see my statistics?

    Click on the gear icon in the top left corner of the game to open the settings. Under “More Settings” you can click on Statistics to view all of your important numbers.
