Wool Factory Idle is one of the latest idle games for the iOS and Android platforms by Green Panda Games. In this one, your goal is to get insanely rich by running a sheep shearing facility and selling wool.
You have a ton of upgrades that you can do in this game, to everything from the size of the sheep to the quantity and quality of the wool, all in the name of making money and selling wool. You can even open up new wool farms in different countries, as well.
Read on for some tips and tricks for Wool Factory Idle!
While for the most part, the game plays itself, your main method of influencing things manually is by directing the sheep where to go. Hold down with your finger and a big white translucent orb will appear on the screen.
The sheep will run away from the orb, so use the orb by putting it on the opposite side of the direction where you want the sheep to go to. The orb acts as a sort of mechanical sheepdog for you.
As for the rest of the upgrades, there are a ton of them and it can be a real beast to keep all of them straight. Here’s a list of what they all do.
SPAWN RATE: Sheep appear more quickly in the barn.
WOOL VALUE: Each sheep’s wool is worth more money altogether each time you upgrade this.
WOOL QUANTITY: You get more wool per sheep that you sell.
ATTRACTION: Sheep go into the top building more quickly so that they can be sold faster.
TRUCKS SPEED: The trucks drive faster, so they pick up your sheep faster.
TRUCKS SIZE: Trucks are bigger, so each specific truck can hold more wool.
SUPER SIZE: Some sheep are larger. More upgrades means more large sheep, and even larger sheep
Once you get the hang of all of these upgrades, use them to your advantage in order to make a ton of money. Once you earn all of that money, you’ll be able to open wooleries in brand new countries.
Simply tap on the globe icon in the lower left corner of the screen to go to the country select menu. You need the right combination of level and money in order to get to a new country.
Besides being in a new country, you’ll also get a new animal to shear. The first new farm you unlock will allow you to collect wool from the llamas. Each new farm comes with a different animal, one that is relatively analogous to the region that the farm is contained in.
You can get all kinds of bonuses using ad videos, but you have to have an internet connection to even load the videos. The main one is tripling your offline income; this is best done when you’ve been offline for a long period of time; at least one hour.
Another good time to use these bonuses is when you collect the money that has built up after awhile. Money never collects and is added to your repertoire automatically; you have to hit the collect button, but you can get the bonus any time.
Hit the boosters tab and you will be abl e to increase the truck speed, activate the dog (manually herds sheep into the top barn), increase wool value, double the speed, or warp ahead by an hour.
Finally, tap on the golden sheep (or llama or whatever) whenever you see it flying overhead. Do this and you will be able to watch another ad video for a massive amount of money. Usually this totals out to even more money than you would have earned just from offline income or collection alone.
