Game says I don't have enough iron plates even though I do

Don't know how to use a machine? Looking for efficient setups? Stuck in a mission?

Game says I don't have enough iron plates even though I do

Postby PlanetX » Sun Oct 15, 2017 7:19 pm

I'm in the beginner missions (First steps part 3) and I want to buy a 2nd turret, I need 20 iron plates for that. In my inventory I have 22. If I click on the turret to buy it it says that I don't have enough ingredients which makes no sense (It claims that I have only 2/20 iron plates). See my attached picture. What to do?

You need 20 iron plates + 10 iron gears. 10 iron gears will take 20 iron plates to craft, leaving you with 2 iron plates left.

Also note, in the picture you can see the text for the gears is in yellow. That color means at least some of those items need to be made for that recipe. If you had the 10 gear wheels in your inventory that'd be white like the copper plate line. Red means you don't have it and can't make it using what you have on hand.
