Guide for using, saving, exporting, and importing schematics.

Using / Saving Schematics

Schematics are building plans that allow you to replicate a design quickly and easily.

  • Hold [F] and drag select (mouse click not needed) buildings to create a schematic.
  • You can then build this schematic elsewhere on the map, and/or save the schematic by clicking “Save Schematic”.
    • Scroll to rotate the schematic. Press [Z]/[X] to flip the schematic.
    • You can overwrite an existing schematic by saving a new schematic with the same name. (Useful for updating Steam Workshop schematics.)
  • Right-click to discard the schematic.

Schematic Menu

Saved schematics are in the schematic menu ([T], or click the clipboard button in the lower right).

  • Click a schematic to select it for building.
  • “Share on Workshop” creates a new Steam Workshop item that others can import by subscribing to. Schematics imported this way can be deleted by unsubscribing from the item.
    • You can update your existing Steam Workshop schematics by clicking the right-most button > “Update Item”.
  • “Copy to Clipboard” copies a text code that can be pasted as text anywhere, which others can then copy and import by clicking “Import Schematic…” > “Import from Clipboard” in the schematic menu.
    • If a text code is pasted in the official Mindustry DC server, the Core bot will automatically replace your message with a file and an image of the schematic, with attribution to you.
  • “Export File” exports a file that others can import by clicking “Import Schematic…” > “Import File” in the schematic menu.

I appreciate your time and hope this little tutorial was helpful.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
