Hot to Use Mass Collect in Techtonica

How Mass Collect Works

You’re given the relatively vague instruction to press and hold ‘E’ to bring up the range of effect and hit ‘E’ again when you have everything lined up as you want. The idea is that this will collect everything within the range indicated when you hold the ‘E’ button.

For many, this hasn’t actually worked and they’ve been left wondering if they did something wrong. Here’s the solution to your problem.

What Mass Collect Works On

What isn’t explicitly outlined is that mass collect isn’t intended to be used out in the field to collect a range of resources at once, which is what many players thought it was for. It is actually a collector of produced resources from your own machines.

This means that Mass Collect can only work on your own creations, which is why many players have experienced it not working properly. It is designed to make things a little easier for the player in the eventuality that they forget what machine produces what item and prevents them from having to look around one by one to find what they need.
