the algae fish

you need level 3 farming, then take the master scientist into the pond...she will "expertly identify the fish" and pull one out. Get all your master scientists to do this because it takes about 7-10 fish and when they put one in the ocean, they don't come back naturally.

Good luck!

I need help getting the scarecrow before the parrots eat all the food. When I place a villager by the thorny bushes, it says "A sharp tool would be needed here." How do I obtain this sharp tool?

hi i am judreyplayer i love vv2 but could someone please help me with the fish to kill algae

hi judreplayer;
you need to have all the farming tech to get the fish that eat algy from the pond.

Reply

modest goddess;

when you have enough science tech you will see some (flint?) by the blue flower near the gong, put someone on it, then put someone on the sticks by the rocks where you got the flint. also, you get the scarecrow by using the sticks by the building rocks near the blue flower, get sticks twice

pam, to do the mosaic you need all the culture you can buy.

Zack: I have 7 totums, when I got the first one I pulled it to the center and got the piece that popped up.

a good way to get an elder is build 2 skills to master then find a female over 50 if you have a male or wait till you female tuns 50. then continually place then one you want to increase their skill on that person until they make the kissing sound it takes about 15 mins of constantly doing it then they become a master parent and now have 3 skills making then an elder. So far I have 7 different types of totems and you can make every person an elder if you do it right

Laurie - They were doing a celebration. They were celebrateing something, something else, blah, blah, blah and then at the end of the message it says celebrating and thankful for the guiding hand. I only have had this happen once but I cracked up when I saw it. It took me a minute and then I made the connection. 'Guiding Hand' . . . my cursor. lol. Sorry, I thought that it was really cute.

Reply

Has anyone noticed a very quiet 'tinkling' sound, much like a wind chime with very tiny chimes...right before collectibles show up? I'm pretty sure it's consistent, I can't always find it/them though...mushrooms are hard to see sometimes when you're zipping about ;o)

I finished the game in 365 hours. I rank #29th.
I loved it as much as VV1. I got sad when it's done.
I did cheat once just to find out how to get the scare crow.

do they ever do anything but celebrate when the gong is rung? This is twice I have rung it and that is all that happens.

Anyone having any trouble with putting their game on pause before they go to bed at night and waking in the morning only to find that your villagers have been VERY busy?? Thanks for any help!

Reply

When I pause the game and come back in I also notice people have moved but nothing much else has happened.

Building the dam and rebuilding the hut takes a while. The more villagers working on it makes it go faster.

Collect all the collectibles. It really adds up in tech points.The rare beetles are hard to see. They blend in with the flowers.

Put builders on the mosaic to clear it. It takes a long time to finish.

Now the gong. I don't see anything happening when I ring it.

What is your population up to? Mine is 109. I have about 30 kids running around. I love it when they play together.

Oh I'm having trouble with the gong that's under the stream, I did it before. But I forgot how. Help anyone? Thanks!!

Reply

Alycia, to get the gong piece

make a stew with these ingredients, 1 black flower from beside the waterfall and 2 orange flowers from the middle bottom, this will give ur villager the ability not to need to breathe, then put the villager in the stream and he/she will retrieve the gong piece... good luck!

Reply

I now have 110 villagers. With 6 dead.

Each time I completed a collection it said I get 5 more people. When I completed all 4 collections it said I get 10 more people. So I am trying for the 120 total.

I'll let you know if I make it to 120.

I got to 115 population and got the message that I am at max.

i can't have any 3 mastered skills, before they do they die, so sad. i'm getting too frustrated and i might have to redo this again.

i also named them as my family members. when the very elderly folk died i felt guilty because i named her after my lovable grandma and after virtual grandma died i decided to name my villagers alphabetically according to age. X-)

do they really die at age 65 average? is there anyway they can die at age 70-80? or i just have to wait until i complete the gong?

Reply

You can find the dry grass way up in the top left side of the beach. Near the funny looking plant. Carry a person up there and watch to see when the game tells you ''sees very dry grass''drop the person and they will get it.

Reply

hey erica, to get dry grass go to the top of the left hand corner, right by the plant you can study there is a purple flower plant. Put your villager on it.

if you want them to live longer you have to buy a lot on medicine, to live really long build a hospital(all three on medicine, and engineering).

sweetmel March 3, 2007 5:22 PM

I have the gong and 2 puzzles left, I think it's the algae and the hospital... but how do I ring the gong? If I place a villager on it it says they're admiring the gong encasement, if I click it with my 'almighty hand' it just goes to the same page spouting how wonderful and amazing the restored gong is... Neither action produces any visible change.

Just a general question out of curiosity. What does everyone do with their totems?

I am arranging mine in a circle around the mosiac piece. Just thought it would be fun to see what others do.

Laurie -

I have also been putting my totems around the mosaic.

Has anybody found any interesting stews? I found one once that made my villagers "jumpy" (kind of funny, actually - they all bounced around) and found the one for health. I also made one that made them very ill. Is there one that gives them master levels or skill points?

Michele,

what is the recipe for making them jumpy?

I have 5 totems. Unfortunately there are 2 doubles. Purple and yellow, two of those, and then 2 of the large light green. The one single one I have is dark green. I like that one the best, nice cut work.

My stew to make them jumpy is
1 the blue flower next to the gong
2 the black flower by the water falls
3 the orange flower at the bottom

I made one that made them pee. One that made them dance. One that made them thirsty. Many I made were inedible.

Sorry, I went back to make the jumpy stew and it didn't work this time. I wrote them all down but for some reason I did something wrong. Sorry, again.

I think I used either 3 blue herbs or 3 black herbs to make them jumpy. I've also made a lot of inedible stews.

Robin, I completed all the collections and got a larger population. I have 115 and that's all I can have. As the older villagers die you can make more babies.

Hi,

I'm a beginner of VV. I just need a suggestion about the tech point. I have upgraded Farming and Engineering to level 2. Now I have 20000 tech points. Which is the best technology to spent it; on level 2 Exploration or level 2 Science?

Thank you...

Reply

someone, The hut with the flowers is where they go when they are ''going inside'' to make babies. Laundry is done out of the research hut.

kerrim, I don't remember what level 3 in exploration does. Other then finding rare collection pieces. Maybe it was for the mosaic? or the hospital?

Reply

aqua27, It's up to you. I did mine in order of price. I bought the cheapest first and went in order of cost. But science does get the tech points faster. Just my opinion.

Reply

Hi kerrim and obie

I haven't reached exploration 3 yet, I think it's for to get the rarer collection pieces quicker... I know it's not for the hospital or the mosaic tho.. you need engineering 3 and medicine 3 to get the hospital and engineering 3 and culture 3 to get the mosaic... would be helpful to know tho if there's anything else that comes with exploration 3.. does anyone know?

p.s is anyone else dreaming about this game? or am I just playing it too much LOL (if there is such a thing!)

Has anyone got a child that is different from the others? I pick them up to put on something, but this one child says,.."Whheeeeeee!"

patsy, I just remembered, you need exploration 3 to make the stew to get the gong piece in the pond.

Laurie, what does the gong do when rung? I see nothing.

sian, if you leave the game and come back the stew will be gone.

You need some dry grass, upper left of beach, to start the fire.

Anouska March 5, 2007 1:28 PM

Keep picking them up and setting them on each other. That way they don't have to go to the cabin to get the baby.

nope you only need engineering 3 and culture 3 to get the gong,

and then put a totem pole in the middle of the mosaic to get the gong piece

A good suggestion for all:

Before you post a question, scan through all of the posts here. I know it takes a long time but you may find your answer right there. It helped me.

Reply

virtual guy22, you need to have level two of tech. then by the stones there are some different "bits". that'll start you off.

Reply

virtual guy22,

why not try playing the game in double speed, all you have to do is go to options and change the settings, change it back tho when you go to bed otherwise some might die when you sleep

to get the spear,

I think it's exploration 2 you need, near the caves there are some rocks to the right hand side, when you get farming 2 one of those rocks will look jaggy.. put a master farmer or scientist on it and he/she will start making the spear, then you have to put them on the patch of sticks you used for the scarecrow and they will complete it..

hope this helps :O)

I have never known that these games could be passed! I would just make sure they were all healthy, knew how to eat and do what ever their job is, put more wood on fire, etc. Then I went to bed. I get up in am and find out how many tech points they racked up! Also, who's been having babies without my permission! I am the Goddess after all!

LOL Laurie, I caught my villages having babies even when I didn't tell them to.

villager rang the bell lost health went from 95 villagers to 66 so if it's rung the results can be good and bad, but more babies can be made and therefore more elders so on and so on

Thanks for the paused info. Got it.

The restoration stew is two of the lavendar flower top right screen and one of the orange flower middle bottom screen.

The hospital will take all levels of medicine.

I have finally got my last butterfly, now I need the last shell,...still, two rocks, and 3 bugs.

The problem I am having in the mosaic is in one area if a kid picks up somthing, they spin a bit and then it disapears. I think there is a little glitch down there.

I am also tired of duplicate totems. I also realized that the totems can hide important collecables if your not carefel. I noticed one sparkling, when I moved it there was a mushroom underneath.
So, if you need to collect things, be careful where you put your totems.
I moved mine to the beach where nothing shows up.

Last time I hit the gong it took away some tech.

Oh yes, something else funny.
As some of you know, I have not been pauseing my game. When I get back to the game, it is like, "PSSST! She's back!" and they all get out of the pond or other leisure activities and get back to work. Think I drive them too hard? Well they have been having all night to goof off. The doctors always goof off. I don't know why they don't try to be better at their job by studying.

Also, I hope they make a vv3 and make the area for them bigger. I want more roaming room. All these kids are under my cursor (foot).
Okay, I AM GODdess and have to check in on my people.

this is a quote from patsy in a post at the top of the page;

you need level 3 farming, then take the master scientist into the pond...she will "expertly identify the fish" and pull one out. Get all your master scientists to do this because it takes about 7-10 fish and when they put one in the ocean, they don't come back naturally.

See, this is why it is great to look at all the previous posts before asking. That way you get the help you need and get back to the game faster.

''The problem I am having in the mosaic is in one area if a kid picks up something, they spin a bit and then it disappears. I think there is a little glitch down there.'' I had this same problem. When I put a child on something I was real careful to put the child above the object so only their feet barely touched it. I still got the spinning thing sometimes. The object did come back later.

I found that shells were always on the beach. Rocks are in the mosaic and bugs are in the cut down thorny patch.

Amy, algae fish hint Drop a master farmer in the pond. They will catch an algae fish and take it to the ocean. It take a few trips.
Sorry but the hidden spoiler isn't working for me.
