OK so I have solved all the puzzles, all my ladies are pregnant(from 1 child to triplets), I have enough food, techpoints are high and all my techs are at level 3...

Now what?? Is the game over or will something happen??

Reply

I know others have asked this same question but no answers have yet been posted. Villagers 1-Have got all I need re: tech points. I have solved all of the puzzles. Have reached the maximum population of 90. Does the game ever come to an end? Does it just keep on running? Right now I have paused it. Any answers?

I am curious as when my game will end. I know that this seems to be a current hot topic of the game. I have completed all techs, have 90 villagers, and my cemetary full.

So far I have encountered 17 Island Events
I am not sure how many Island Events there are but these are the ones I have found so far:

1. Found an old book. If you take it to the table for the book will disappear. If you read it, the villager reads it they will find a path and disappear forever.
2. When the Moth is struggling to get out of it's cocoon, DON'T HELP it. If you help the moth it will die in the ocean.
3. Small Badly Weathered Crate has swashed ashore containing old rusty tools, and also give you tech points.
4. A Monkey was around the food bin stealing food. One time the monkey ran away with food. And the other time I caught up with him and was able to recieve a bunch of banana's.
5. A heat wave came and my farmers wouldn't work. It also caused a fire burning some of my grown crops.
6. Strong winds came and damaged my buildings and huts that my builders had to repair.
7. I have had a crate wash ashore with 3 babies in it.
8. I have had a crate was ashore with spiders in it, that attacked the villager opening it, and then she had to be healed.
9. I had a toddler find some king of plant/vial/berry that they ate and made immediately age to 12 or 14.
10. I found a "heavy drum" and if you look for food inside it will break, but if you don't break it, the villagers use it as a "rain drum" for their crops.
11. HoneyBees will show up and pollonate the berry bush to create more berry's.
12. I've had several vials found that either take tech points away, give your villagers more skills, or make them ill.
13. I was asked what the villager's should do with an "odd villager child" and then I had to make a decision on what skill he would be best suited for. Picking the correct skill will make him a part of the group and not an outcast.

Hi guys. i'm just starting to play, and want to know a few things. Someone pleeez help. firstly, what are collectibles?
Sometimes, i put kids near mushrooms but they just refuse to pick them up. I need them badly coz the berry bush will probably run out any time now. Can someone please tell me all the alternative ways to get food. I cleaned up the beach, but it said my adept farmers didnt know how to fish. wat level do i need.
And do children do anything other than just run around and waste energy?

Reply

All Techs fully researched, tons of food and tech points. , 72 villagers.

Solved all puzzles except the buried treasure. Occasionally when a villager is in the area it will say 'is there something buried here?' but no one digs for it - tried putting ALL the villagers in that spot - nothing.

I have everything unlocked to level 3 and have made the idol and unblocked the lagoon but still no golden child how do i get it plz

Obi- Take villagers to the sandy area by the ruins. Drop them around to the upper left of the ruins but under the food box. They should dig on their own...once you find the right spot.

Madeygirl- Doesn't matter. Anyone can fish. Need level 3 in farming.

Tribe Doomed- you have to make a scarecrow. Beside the thorny shrubs are "twisted vines" or something like that. You need to take a villager to that spot and they'll start to build a scarecrow. I think you need a 2 in construction.

Liam- You need to put a nursing villager into the lagoon. You also have to have the ruins restored.

They party and swim and it just goes on and on and on! Is there anything else to do or do you just delete that game?

In VV1, I know that having the school means the children are born with more skills, but I've found that when I beat the drum (which washed up on the shore and I didn't break) NEXT to the school all the kids come and line up at the door. They don't go in and it doesn't seem to improve their skills at all. I've tried dragging a master scientist or farmer over to see if they'll teach them, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. Is there a point to getting the kids to go to school?

Tips for the new starters...

Basically, when you start off the game, send two people to forage food! One person (builder) to clean up the well, two people to research. (Put the more athletical people into foraging or builder)
Then after the well is clean, send your builder to build the house or clean up the beach debris. Either way you have to do them both but I would recommend you the house.
Spend your tech points on Farming. (you should be able to get it to level 2 before your berries run out) Keep on harvesting until you get to about 700-1000 food.
Then, well... the breeding season comes... and you should be able to maintain and survive the game.

I had a lot of trouble with the treasure chest. I slowly dragged a Master Builder over the top left area of the ruins. If you go slowly and in a grid pattern, the words "Is something buried here?" appear in the action line. It's only 1 tiny spot, so move slowly and drop the builder when you seen that comment. It takes a while. I dropped builders for 10 - 12 times before one actually dug!

To get the pieces of the gong

Take 3 builders and place them on the crate on the beach. Cut away thorns at the gong site. When the ancient area is cleared, place a totem on the circle in the middle. Lastly, make a stew of 2 of the orange flower at the very bottom of the screen, then 1 of the ivy growing in the graveyard. Take an esteemed elder and get him to eat the stew, then drop him into the lagoon.

Reply

just to say, reading some of your stories, i was crying laughing.

Reply

VV.2 - To get pieces of the gong, you don't need an Esteemed Elder to eat the stew (2 big orange/red flower & 1 black vine). Any villager can eat it. Drag them over to the lagoon then let them do their thing.

When I turn off my computer and then check on my virtual villagers game it isn't there.

When a villager is doing research their hips will slighly twitch. At that point the Tech Points have been awarded and you can pick them up and move them and it very slightly speeds up the research time by not waiting for them to go through the whole routine.

The last puzzle you'll probably solve is moving the boulder from the cave. During the game, you may see eyes peaking out over the top. The logical assumption would be we got to see what was in the cave. The joke is on us this time. After all the puzzles are solved, there is no big reveal behind the cave mystery. The game continues on as if the puzzles weren't solved. There is no big ending. The only thing you'll get from solving all the puzzles is the satisfaction you did solve them.

Tech and Time. For all of you people who are a little impatient with the slow pace of the game, or just a few more tech points, or just wish time would speed up.....The game works off of your pc clock....So, change your time. double click time in the bottom right hand corner of your desktop. Change the time and hit apply, then open villager. Time flies when you're having fun.

Okay, in reference to the changing of your PC clock to speed up the game, be careful and do it at your own risk because not just virtual villagers runs off of the PC clock, if you change it, you might screw up parts of your computer.
There were some people at the top who asked about getting the people to do their jobs, well just keep dragging and dropping them onto what you want them to do about six or seven times,if they are going to do it at that moment they will begin.
For the ones who ask about farming, there is going to be a field that becomes accessible after you pay for the second level of farming, just drop a farmer on it.
Hope I was Helpful, I just happened to come across this page with people who had not had their questions answered.

Danielle July 9, 2007 12:42 PM

Ok to answer some of your questions about the treasure chest even though it has been answered more than 5 times here it is:

Go to the area by the food bin and the rebuilt ruins. South of the food and west of the ruins is where you place your master builder. make sure you have level 3 of construction or it wont work. after you have your master working on it take some of your other builders over. They will get the hint after a couple times of placing them there. BE PATIENT!!

As far as the golden child is concerned...

make sure level 3 of fertility is done. get a girl pregnant and when she is nursing drag her to the lagoon. place her in the lagoon and you will see the puzzle completed for the golden child. EASY AS PIE!!

to get more food you have to unlock level 2 of food. after you unlock it you will see under the scientist's table a field. take a farmer over to it and they will start to harvest food. then you will have to wait until the crops grow so i suggest getting a move on and placing more than 3 farmers on the field at a time.

Hope it all helped!!!

I have a tip for making lots of babies!! Instead of waiting for the man and women to go to the hut and see if they will have a child together, just look at the population growth number on the top left screen as soon as you put the male on the female. If the number goes up 1 shes pregnant. You then can click on the girl and move her to a different location and she will automatically carry a baby in her arms. That way you dont have to wait for them to go in the hut etc. Also, if the male mates with the female and the population growth number doesnt increase immediately dont bother waiting for them to go to the hut, because they wont have a child.

annepin July 11, 2007 1:45 PM

I'm just going to add some random thoughts about this game. I really love this game. I've been playing it for the last week or so. In the beginning it was hard not to micromanage all the little villagers; eventually, I had enough confidence in their abilities to survive to let them on their own for hours at a time, though I admit I like to peek in on them pretty frequently.

What I find most appealing is the organic nature of the game. There is no recipe for success--it really is just about surviving. I started out playing four games at once to try out different strategies. It was so hard to predict which of the games would be successful until well into the process. One of my villages just died completely--we had the misfortune of finding three infants in a crate, and the extra mouths to feed just proved too much at an early stage.

The random events is a great feature for making the game unpredictable--it could literally make or break your little village. On the other hand, it's what made it sometimes anxiety-producing. After investing so many hours into a game, it's really difficult to cope when you realize your villagers are probably screwed. You get so attached to them, much because of their unique look and personalities. It was so sad when I discovered my venerable patriarch, the two oldest living member, had finally turned into skeletons.

The god-like control of this game is both very empowering and also creepy. I can't get used to making the villagers to "breed", and watching them age always makes me feel philosophical about life.

At first I felt the game was a bit sexist, and that bothered me. I mean, come on, can the women do *nothing* when they're nursing?? They could at least stand at the table and research! There's a huge incentive to investing more time and effort into making the men masters, since they have a greater chance both of reaching that level, and of being useful as they are not put out of commission for hours at a time. But then I thought, well, maybe that's a too modern way of looking at it. In the villagers' world, making life is pretty darn important. In fact, in one of my games, I realized all my villager had gotten to their late forties and I hadn't created a single child!

The pacing was a little off. Towards the middle of the game, as I was trying to rack up tech points for some of the last stage purchases, I had a lot of adept and master builders running around with nothing to do. I admit I didn't want to take the time to train them to become scientists or farmers, but it was a little sad, to see them reduced to uselessness for a period of time. Consequently, too, I had a difficult time getting master builders, since there wasn't all that much to do.

Reply

start by saying LOVE this game. now i have a mamma thats nursing, but says she is weakened...anyway to remedy that...or do i just wait for her to become totally sick and pray that someone heals her. i have read all the comments above and dont see this one addressed. if it has been, i apologize for the duplicate. any suggestions would be most appreciated.

CrystalGal July 12, 2007 2:35 PM

This is so funny, I think its a glitch. I can only play the online demo thingy so there limited stuff. Well, I left it on last night and today everybody is dead except one female, and there is no food so she is close to dying. I thought I'd try breeding one of the skeletons to her, for fun, and I think it worked because the next time I tried dragging a boy skeleton (I could tell b/c I heard a grunt like one the boys made instead of a "Oh!" from a girl) and the next time I tried that it said she nursing a baby! And she begun carrying around a bay without 'going inside'!!!!!! Then it froze, but she probably died or something and I thought oh well and started a new game. But I thought that was SO funny!!!
