Tips and Tricks: a Beginner’s Guide

Dream Engines: Nomad Cities guide is filled with essential tips and tricks to help you master the game.


  • When you research building add-ons, interact with a building to build those and unlock new production recipes or other bonuses.


  • Choose carefully which buildings to place inside the city and take with you. Upgrade these buildings to make them more efficient.


  • When sending items out of storage, you can set a minimum amount in the item selection pop-op. Items will only be sent if the storage has more than this minimum amount of that item.


  • Click on the city name in the HUD to open the city information window. This window also provides information about the current landing zone.


  • Click the Tools button and then choose the move tool or press M in management mode to reorganize your buildings. Some buildings like walls and rails cannot be moved.


  • Demolishing most buildings will return half their construction costs, but not flux.


  • Use the copy building key default V in management mode to quickly create another building instance under your cursor.


  • You can activate the target marker from the settings window to help you aim your ranged attacks.


  • If you find yourself waiting too long for planks, build more word warpers or any other refinery.


  • Most buildings can be upgraded. Upgrading is more expensive than building another building but does not use any extra space or weight.


  • If you want to remove a transport cart from some rails, use the pick-cart tools (P) in management mode to return the items to your inventory.


  • You can quickly enable or disable several buildings without interacting with them using the management mode on/off tool (O).


  • Build workshops to produce materials for upgrading your infrastructure. Upgrading infrastructure can provide powerful, permanent bonuses.


  • Do not be afraid of building more than one research center or workshop so you can progress faster. Just make sure your economy can support it.


  • Hit debris worldwide to collect old-world scraps that can be used in ruins buildings to craft unique items.


  • Learn hotkeys of the game.
