New Roblox Islands update brings factories to the game!

Islands just got a pretty huge update that has brought factories to the game. This includes new ore, mining capabilities, molds, and a bunch of new items that you can make. Not only that, there's a small resource island that will spawn near your island. Each of these has a block that can be mined with a drill. They spawn every 24 hours, but not game time, in real life time!

As for resources, you can get copper and create steel. There's a new merchant who will purchase products that you create via your factories. You can also make a Weapon Stand and Fish Tank by using the Carpentry Bench! There's even some decorations that can be added to your fish tank to make it look amazing. Be sure to check this update out, because there's a whole lot of fun additions to the game.

Here's a look at the official patch notes from the Islands Discord, where you can see all of what has been added to the game:

Resource Deposit Islands

Small resource islands now spawn near your island. Each resource island has a deposit block that can be mined using a drill. Resource islands only spawn every 24 IRL hours.

  1. What is the copper bolt For??

    1. A copper bolt is used for selling at the moment

  2. Is anyone else having problems with the Steel Mill wasting iron bars when attached to an Industrial Chest? I set up a line with an Industrial Chest at either end (1 set to In and the other set to Out, matching the Steel Mill’s direction) and I put Iron Bars into the Out chest to feed into the Steel Mill – 40 of them…and got out only 15 or so Steel Bars at the end….the rest of my iron just vanished???

  3. Why does the plate mold only go up a few bars and then start over again. I cant get it to produce a plate. Bolt molds work great. Plate mold wont produce?

  4. How to get back the resource block if we accidently broke it?

    1. we can’t. your gonna have to wait 24 hrs for another resource island

    2. you have to wait 24 hours and a new one will be back
