does anyone know why, when you purchase tech for construction, it says your villagers will be able to construct "new" types of buildings?? I have only seen little huts!!

Reply

Why are some of my villagers worrying about housing if they can't build but three huts? Can more be built??

irishlass December 1, 2006 8:18 PM

can anyone tell me if they were able to construct "new buildings" after gaining all tech points for construction?

Reply

tina davenport, i didn't notice that but i don't know. maybe, by new kind of buildings, they mean temples, idols and unblocked lagoons? maybe........;)

td, i've had that happen too. you can't build anymore huts but, i really don't know why they say that. :/

irishlass, no, i wasn't. read the begining of this post, you will see my answer to tina davenport.

Hi,
I really like the game, even bought the full version :D But there is one thing i hate SO much! I've tried it like a thousand times, every time i have the level 2 farming i see crops growing, and they get food from it, but after a while they still die!! One after one and really fast! :( And when i click on the farming thing (where the crops grow) it says it takes 1200 minutres before new crops grow, and the berries aren't coming realy fast too! :( I'm stuck every time at this point... please help me :(

Reply

Klaarzaken, maybe their getting old so they die? (remember, they die quite early when you first start the game.) or maybe they have a diesease? well, i really don't know how you can get more food after that than pick mushrooms. just put a lot of your villagers to the research table so you can buy level 3 in farming. hope that helps!

Reply
Klaarzaken December 4, 2006 11:01 AM

No, that's not it, the youngest die fast too!! :( It's very strange :( And about the diseases, I found a Master Medic (or how you call it :P) when a little kid opened a cocoon, he was 21 years old... I've putted all my villagers to the research, let 2 on farming, but still it was to slow :( I will try it again

omg all my villagers well i hadent checked it in a wile so i had like 90 people before i layed of the game and then i came back like to weeks later to check on it and the only one that didn't die was the golden child only because he doesn't get older than five

hey! i just got a pop-up that said "your villager is dreaming and he sees 2 caves. the right cave has something that looks like gold. in the left cave, there seems to be something growling. which cave do you choose?" i choose the left one. it said that there was no animal inside and on the walls, there is a picture of a temple with gold to the left of it. it told me where the tresure is! cool!

StormyEye December 7, 2006 3:03 AM

Help! My first generation died a few years ago, and my children don't seem to be going to school anymore.

Reply

I have a couple of minor yet annoying problems I was hoping y'all could help me with.

First, the people I have set on farming now insist on fishing constantly. I reset them over and over and they go back when I'm not looking.

Fishing SEEMS to be a faster food source than crops, but I don't see any reason to waste them. So how do I get my guys n gals to separate crops from fishies?

Secondly, I've already forgotten if my weenies have built 2 or 3 huts, but once they're built, how does one get a master builder?

I had one guy set on builder and fixing huts for 10 hrs and he just couldn't break that last little bit before master.

One needs a master builder to find the treasure, correct?

Thank you!

Reply

I was also wondering... I haven't gotten this far yet but I've read this topic... if I understand correctly, once you get to the point you can make a golden child, you drop a mom with a baby into the lagoon, yes? Has anyone tried dropping a mom with twins or trips?

Reply

StormyEye, when your kids go to school, they don't actually get smarter. just click on the drum and they should go to school.

Aviera, fishing counts as farming! clicking the box "farming" won't help them stop fishing.
fishing is endless! the fish never run out, so it doesn't really matter.
i had the same problem, some farmers will go pick crop once they have grown. just drag them on the crops and once they finish their 1st basket, they should go for their 2nd.
fixing huts do improve building skill. it just takes a VERY LONG time. hang in there! he should become a master soon!
yes, you do meed a master builder to find the treasure.
if you drop a mom with twins or triplets, you will still only get one golden child. your mom will still be nursing 1 baby (or 2 if they were triplets). well, @ least that's what i heard.
hope that helps!!!! :)

Reply

someone, yup, sure does! Thanks much!

StormyEye, kids stop going to school (and being able to pick up shrooms) at 14. That's when you put them to work. I've preset preferences and still had them wander around aimlessly, bored and unsure, when they became non-kids.

But when they are still kids, the drum is only useful for getting them outta the way when you're trying to do somt. I found it quite useful when I was trying to rebuild the ruins.

Reply

I am VERY disapointed that this game did not have a pop~up to let you know that all levels are complete and your game is fished.
I thought there was more to it than this???
This game is WAY TO BORING!!!!!

Reply

someone...give us a spoiler regarding your posting about the 2 caves and the location of a treasure. I seem to get the same pop-ups. I haven't even had the whale yet. Any news on the release date yet? My friend ;-) can hardly wait to get it for Christmas. I would really like to play it...oh I mean my friend would really like to play it while she has some time off work before the holidays.

Reply

Aviera, no prob! also, about the drum thing, so true!

kerrie, i guess when you drag a villager to the open cave and the pop-up comes out, is a sign that you are done. still not a very good ending.

doc, didn't i already tell you about the cave? (the left cave, i don't know what happens in the right cave though.) i haven't had the whale either.
no news on the date yet. but on another website, i read that it was supposed to be out already but it isn't finished yet.
i'm sure your FRIEND would love vv2. ;)

Reply

Doc, use the browser search on "Puzzle #1" and you'll see a spoiler for all of them. It's about midway thru the topic.

I found only a couple differences (like it didn't require Spirituality 1 to use/find the graveyard) so it's pretty useful.

someone - uhoh, I missed somt. I thought people were sayin 2 caves in ref to VV2. There's 2 caves in VV1?? I've only seen the one with the glowing eyes that the golden kid is sposed to unblock..?

Reply

Aviera, about the level 1 in sprituality. when you start the game, don't you already have level 1 in spiritaulity? i don't quite get what you're talking about.
there isn't 2 caves in vv1. i was talking about one of those pop-ups. my villager was having a dream about 2 caves and asked me which one he should go into. :) don't worry, you didn't miss a thing!

doc, WHAT?! are you saying you have a population of 96?????!!!! you're sooooooo lucky!!! if you ever find out how, you gotta tell me! :O to bad you didn't get 97, or else you would have been on the high scores list. :)

Hollilypoms, you need to have the golden child. to have the golden child, you need level 3 in fertility, the idol built, the lagoon unblocked and a nursing mother. just drop the nursing mother in the lagoon and TA-DA! the golden child will remove the boulder when he is ready, yo can't force him to.

Reply

someone, I don't recall starting with 1 spirituality, but then I wouldn't necessarily. But there was one of the skills that I know I got because I did one of the puzzles. I'm just not good at paying attention to what :p

Kilko1, it does take a long time to get the tresure. also, there is no one in the cave. i think it's a clue that leads to vv2!

someone, I played the normal one. I'd tried the trial a little while ago and it didn't go well so I was being cautious ;)

I'm still bummed I had no triplets *pout*

For you folks who have enjoyed Virtual Villagers, and while you're waiting for VV2 to come out, why not give Westward a try? It's a similar (but different) real-time strategy game that pushes you across the unexplored old west setting up towns and hunting for riches. Check out our review of Westward or download the free demo and try it.

Reply

Thanks to all those that have answered so many of the same questions that have been asked. I'm really excited about VV2 comming out. Anyone know the exact day or year it will be out??? Also, Just wanted to say thanks to Jay who made this site and allowed others to post their questions and answers. :)

Thank you.

Any other fun games besides this one to try?? Didn't really care to much for the western ones. Once again thank you to all of you and may you all have a most Wonderfully Blessed Christmas and a very safe new year blessed by Jesus Himself. :)

Reply

Aviera, oh, that's ok. you'll get triplets soon. i didn't get them until later too.

jay, thanks! i've already played it.

BTW, this is my opinion. i don't really like westward. it is kind of like virtual villagers but totally not as good. it's more complicating. also, i found it really hard to get around (people never went to the other screen.) in virtual villagers, you click the ground and drag, that's how you move, but in westward, it's a lot harder. i would recomend not trying it. of course, that's just what i say, some of you may like it! it's your choice! :)

Reply

CM3233, i don't know if you would like these kind of games but you could try diner dash, diner dash 2 and 3. oh, i love this one: belive in santa.

i got another weird pop-up. well, i told my golden child to drink this blue liquid and it said that he remembers something from when he was little. he remembers the yummy porrage (dunno how to spell). then it said something like: he will eat it again!
then nothing happened. wow...........;)
besides, how can he remember anything from the past when he's only 5 years old???!!!

hey doc, where are ya? i want to know if you got a population of 96! :O

wow! virtual villagers..this is the most fantastic simulation game ive ever played.. it was very fun and with no pressures at all. it helps me be relaxed, in fact when i go home, i immediately check on my "family".. there are times when im like talking to them..wait, im not insane..=) it's just that i have this attachment to them because im the one who mould them and with what they are doing and accomplishingim really proud and happy. virtual villagers is very cool! i really love playing it!

by the wat, diner dash and cake mania are some of those games i like..it has a thrill..! more power to the creators/developers of virtual villagers.. im encouraging my friends to play it too..for sure and i bet they'll enjoy..100% satisfaction guaranteed..thanks..goodbye, ive got to check on my "family", especially my youngest, Kissa..=)

Reply

someone...I've been on call a lot and have had problems getting online. I wish I could figure out how a population of 96 is possible. I don't have a clue. I'm like you, I didn't like Westward. It's not as user friendly as Virtual Village. I downloaded it and closed it down before my time ran out. You mentioned Diner Dash, it's fun, however, like I told you in the past, I really enjoy coming home and checking on my little villagers. I do hope on VV2 they do something with little Chrome Dome (golden child). He really is boring. I appreciate that he helps the villagers with the food, but...all he does is make food and disrupts the work by constantly celebrating (boring). Any news on the release date? My friend is curious. ;-)

does anyone know how to bury someone if u do plz tell me how...

ttfe, wow! good job! you're so lucky! :D

abi, lol. it's cool, i bet everyone has some kind of conection with their villagers. :) have you tried believe in santa? it's kinda like diner dash 2 because you can choose what your resturant will look like.

doc, oh, that's ok, i was just wondering where you were, you're always posting something to laugh @! lol.
too bad you didn't get a population of 96, i thought you did! oh well! :)
whew! i thought i was the only one who didn't like westward. i didn't want everyone against me! :P
i THINK i did hear that in vv2, the golden child will be more useful. yay! no more partying!!!!! ;)
nothing on the date yet. i'm sure your friend can't wait any longer. ;)

dominator, when a villager dies, you will see their skeleton. if you have level 2 in spirituality, and if you have not done so, drag any villager to that big empty space @ the top right corner. you will then have a cemetary. drag a villager to the bones and he/she will pick it up and take it to the grave. (actually, once they pick up the skeleton, you can drag them, which causes them to drop it. this will have no effect, they will still bury it. saves time.)

Reply

someone...I did get a population of 96. I did figure out one possible way to get at 95 but not 96. If you had 89 and one became pregnant with tripets and then you got the pop-up that said you received a crate with 3 children in it. Possible...but that didn't happen to me. I don't know what happened to me...well it didn't happen to me...my villagers.

Reply

doc, ok, NOW i get it. sorry about the confusion! :) you're so lucky! do you still have a population of 96?or did some of your villagers dies already? *sigh* still wish i got 96 like u!

Reply

How do u speed the progress of cleering the block the creek

Reply

someone...Alas...I have lost some of my prized 96. I only have a population of 90. However, my villagers really stay busy...so to speak. I can have several villagers go to the great beyond and before the bones are gone my population is back up to 90. As I said once before, that cactus plant does wonders. ;-)

Reply

I luv this game it rocks! :D

Reply

so i was wondering..........does the cave go off somewhere else eventually...or is it after you unlock all puzzles and reasearch all tech. its over......I juss finished rite now and am wondering.

Reply

once you solve all puzzles and research all techs......is that it or is there more to the game?

Reply

Well I started over, just to do things diff. Been playin this one 125 hrs.

Bah! I peeked in a few mins ago and was shocked to see 91 population. I had no events that gave me extra babes.

I've gotten no twins or trips since maxing out, and I had about decided to turn off breeders cuz they get preg the sec someone dies, forcing single births.

But just now I peeked in to check my hrs for this post, and low a villager had died and I was back to 90.

However, there was no baby when I peeked in and saw 91. My 2 youngest were 4.

So either I got twins - I didn't keep track of twins - or you can eventually go over 90. (still only have had 1 set of trips and that was population 50 or so)

Reply

harry, you can speed up the time by going to the menu, click, options, then click 2x speed. or you can move your computer time ahead. or, put a lot of villagers to the creek.

doc, back to 90 eh? just wondering, what is your rank for population now?

ashlee, after you have finished everything, you are done. you can go inside the cave but you can't actually explore it.

Aviera, well, i've gotton a population of 91 before, but it was because i had twins or triplets. i really don't know how you could have gotton 91. oh well! as long as you did! ;)

Reply

someone...maximum pop rank is 163, twins rank is 94, triplets rank is 49. Hours played is 1679. It is 4:15am and I just got off call. I can't believe I came in and checked to see how my villagers are doing and then checked the discussion board. I think I need to make an appointment with me...what do you think? :-)

Reply

how do i get the lagoon please i need help!!

Reply

I turned off all breeding, hoping to get down to 70 or so and then see if I get any twins or such, but the ones that used to breed keep breeding anyway so I stay at 90. I guess I gotta wait for those so inclined to croak.

One odd thing I noticed is whenever I've been gone a while, I come back and find 90% of them in or near the water. I might assume they're all boredly fishing, but the mothers are with them too!

Reply

doc, 163? not bad! but, that means you aren't the only one who got 96! or maybe even over 96, oooooooooooohhhhhhhhh........;)
yeah, an appointment with yourself might be needed. lol. ;)

max, you need level 2 in construction. just drag a villager to the rocks and they should start clearing the blockage.

Aviera, oh, well, twins and triplets are quite hard to get. i know! all of them are always by the water. i tried dragging them to their jobs and then i quite the game. then i go on again right away and i find them all by the water again! what is goin' on? :/

Reply

How do you get the boulder cleared? I keep dragging builders & researchers to it, but can't seem to do it. I've maxed out all of my tech things, I have my 90 people, I've solved 11 of the 16 puzzles. What else should I do?

hey so virtual villagers two is taking forever its been at 70% for like ever or maybe they just haven't updated the progress. but yea i want it to come out here soon they said it would be here before christmas but i don't think thats going to happen.

Reply

The boulder clearing is automatic, after you've finished creating the golden child it will go there and clear the boulder for you. Then you can tell someone to go inside.

Reply

nancy, you need to have the golden child. to get the golden child, you need the idol built, level 3 in fertility, a nursing mother and the lagoon. jst drag the nursing mother in the lagoon and the golden child should be born. then, your golden child will remove the boulder for you. he will move it when he is ready, you can't force him. you only have 11/16 puzzles done, the other ones need the golden child. if you can't figure them out, i can help you. :)

k, yeah, i'm not so sure it's coming out before christmas either. well, if i see it on a website, i'll tell you guys right away!

hey everyone! I GOT AN UPDATE FOR VV2!!!! it's called: virtual villagers, the lost children.
sadly, it is not coming out before chirstmas. soon, but not that soon. :(
vv2 is still on isola.
it will also tell us about the people who lived on the island before our villagers. you know, tell us more about the cave, the temple and so on.
the story will continue on the west side of the island.
that's pretty much all i know for now. if you want to see the page that i found all this information on, check out gamezebo.

k, they don't have an exact date yet. the game is done, they're just testing it right now. it runs on real time, remember? so it will take a while to test. ;)

doc, i have no idea. everyone in the other forums are just as confused as we are. :/

Reply

doc, never mind my other post. people reach a population of 99 by opening a lot of crates filled with babies. makes sense.

EVER WONDER WHY YOU VILLAGERS SAY THERE IS SOMETHING UNUSUAL BY THE TREASURE? it's actually a minor glitch (if you want to call it that.) it's supposed to be a clue to where the treasure is. but many people don't notice it until AFTER they have found the treasure.

ldw.com forums can answer a lot of your questions! partly beacuase the Director of QA and Testing posts there daily! :)
