I've uncovered the mosaic but there's no gong piece. It's now July 2007. So even though there's an "Ed" note that the problem has long since been fixed, I just got it. How do I contact LDC to get the fix?

Rachael, that has happened to others too. I suggest you leave the game and come back. It may be back in the wood pile or it may be by the fire.

Hey Jay, can you help Andy? He has the mosaic problem.

HELP!! pls...i made a villager pick up the cauldron from the wood pile, looked at my desktop for the next instruction and when i turned the game back on it was gone!!! not in the pile of wood/fire/the villager who got it. please help!

i need the last one missing piece!

Quick food, tech, and kids. Food: get an adept or master farmer (can do same way for tech pts.), make it fish climb or farm, and change your clock time up an hour or two. Tech: get a trainee scientist and put it at the research table, the change clock time about 3-4 hours ( this will also get you an adept or master scientist). you keep doing this (not too much or your whole village may die...). Kids: make a woman have a baby. fast forward your clock.

Does anyone know if you have to have a check mark by a villagers skill for them to master it? I have a few villagers that have mastered only one skill, and i know that to make them an elder they have to have 3 skills mastered. So should i keep the check mark on their already mastered skill or a new one? or no check mark at all?

Reply

**i've already purchasing the third level of farming. and both the master scientist and master farmer already put some algae-eating fish into the ocean. but still they can't go fishing because the algae still there(they only disappear a while after i put the fish, and in a few secs it grows again...)

**is the quantity of researcher effects the progress of the tech points?(the more scientist the more points you gain?)

anyone can help me?

Hi! I just got an account. Sorry for any miss spelled words. Any way, what are the parrots for? It's really been bugging me. I also have only played my game for one day and i already have two gong pieces, a dam, 300 food, 7 adults, 3 kids, and one teenager(14 years old). I hate that algae and I have completed around like 5 milestones and i talk alot. But I have lost like 5 games since i bought the game (i have had it for around 3 months). I need to stop chatting. All i wanted to do was make my announcement so yeah.:)

here's how you get the first gong piece

you create a stew and the ingredients are the black flower and two other ingredients (I don't know them of the top of my head) and you put the villager into the pond and they climb up the wall and retrieve it.

hope that helps any one

how many totems do you need to drop on the Mosiac

Reply

Okay, strategies to cope with food shortages... I don't have the last farming technology yet so I'm stuck harvesting crops and coconuts until i get enough tech points. So here's my strategy. When the crops are ready, get everyone to harvest them as quickly as possible. Don't take no for an answer. If they space out and stop working pick them up and get them working again. Once the veggies are harvested, the time til next harvest will begin ticking off, but you've got a good stock of food to last you for that duration. You can then release your dudes to rack up tech points or do whatever, until the next round of veggies is ready.

The health restoring stew sounds handy too, though I didn't know about it until just now.

Reply

Nora, put the check mark by the new skill. You have to teach the new skill. Then they will stick to it and master it.

Steph, keep putting algae eating fish in the ocean. It will clear up. The more scientists the more tech points.

Yames, collect all the collectibles to get a larger population. I have 117 in my game now.

Susan S Shaw, one totem on the mosaic. If it doesn't work you have the bad copy of the game.

annepin , be sure you are always checking for more coconuts. Point to the top of the middle tree. You can't see the coconuts but sometimes they are there.

EVERYONE,DON'T MESS WITH THE CLOCK. IT WILL MESS UP YOUR GAME.

hey guys i just finished the game a while ago......
it's.......AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

Obie3, how do you know how many collectibles items have you collect?

Reply

Steph, on the left of the game click on the ''collections'' button. You will see any blank spots that need filling. It will show you if you need shells, butterflies, rocks or bugs.

Reply

Is there anything else you can do with the mosaic after you get the gong piece. I saw in the picture above all of the people standing on it in lines. Is this some kind of a ritual thing you can do? I have already completed all of the puzzles and am just looking for other interesting things to do while I look for my last 5 or 6 collection pieces and grow my population. Thanks!

Reply

Obie, i mean how can we know how many exactly collections that have been collected, since sometimes we collect the same items twice or more..and you said before, that we can get extra 5 villagers if we collect them 117 pieces. how can we know it already 117. because they only have 12 for each collections (pebbles,butterflies,etc).

Reply

Steph, I am sorry I confused you. 117 is my population after I got all the collectibles.
There isn't a count for the collectibles. All the extras give you tech points.

Angel , that mosaic picture is a set up picture. Someone moved the villagers around and took a picture. It doesn't happen in the game.
What I did when the game was done is try for blonde babies or dark hair babies by picking the parents.
Have you gotten all 50 totems? You can try that.
My game is still running. I just watch them but I have to keep making healers to keep them healthy.

Reply

Thanks for your explanation, Obie..haha i'm understand now..
hmm..what will happen if we reach 50 totems?
will the rare items appear again if we miss them? because sometimes i let my game running while i'm away from my PC..

Steph , nothing happens after 50 totems. You just don't get any more esteemed elders but the game goes on.

Yes the rare collectibles keep appearing.

Disturbed July 21, 2007 3:11 AM

Hi Obie ,

The ocean was abundant of alga and don't have more coconuts ,I don't have time to buy the third tech of farming , what another knack may I obtain food?

Reply

spazzo, first click detail, bottom right, click on the skill you want your villager to do. Kissing means they are parenting.

Algae eating fish; you need farming 3 first. They are in the pond.

Your villagers will bury the dead eventually. Just wait.

Disturbed, food comes from
1. the garden
2. fishing (you have to get farming 3 to get rid of the algae)
3. coconuts (sometimes they appear and you can't see them. You have to drop villagers on the middle tree)
4. mushroom.(Have children pick up mushrooms.)

I figured out that "teaching children" increases the "teachers" parenting skill.

I also have a tip, if you have a female villager that you are trying to make an esteemed elder(with only one skill to go)..just keep mating her and have her teach the children and she will master the skill without becoming pregnant and wasting all that time.

children can become healers at am early age of 2. that is one way they can gain an early skill in there life...

I NEED HELP FAST!!!

my villagers are out of food; their coconut supply is 0, and there are 2097 minutes remaining until they get new crops [i tried speeding up the time, but that just made the time greater]. and now all of them are dying. and i also only have 12k something tech points, so i can't buy the next level of farming to get the fish.
my only source of food is the mushrooms my children very rarely find. i thought making a stew tha twould restore their health would hold them off long enough to go without food, but i dont have enough food to make a stew, and everytime i get a mushroom, the food supply is gone before i can get what i need to make the stew.

any suggestions on how i can get food, or how i can get tech points faster to get the farming tech?

wisha..I also had same issue...the only thing i could think to do was to make everyone research..accumulate as many tech points as fast as you can to buy farming to ward off algae. Make babies, and just try to keep everyone alive in the meantime.

Herb, do your villagers understand the herbs? Take one person to each of the 6 herbs to study them. Then click on the cauldron to set it up for a stew. Drop a person on it 2 more times to get water and food. Then drop a villager on a herb and they will collect it for the stew. You need 3 herbs for a stew.

Emily , when it shows up, the cauldron will be in the wood pile in the southwest corner.

alwaysreo , there is no way to see the colors of the absent collectibles. Click collections to see shape. If you have only a couple to go, ask me which ones you need and I can tell you the color.

Millissa, For the villager that runs away, look in detail and see what his likes and dislikes are. Maybe he is afraid of something that stops him from being a master farmer. Some villagers do not like fish, they won't fish.

After purchasing Level 3 of Farming, take a master farmer or master scientist to the pond, where they will catch algae-eating fish that they put in the ocean. Once sufficient fish have been placed in the ocean, the algae will once again be under control and the villagers will have unrestricted fishing.
