where is the clothing hut and where do you even build it?

Iola -

The clothing hut foundation usually appears after you've bought level 3 science. Once the foundation appears you can drop your builders on it and they will build it.

Help! I only have 1 villager but she can't have a baby now!

no one is gathering food, everytime i put them on the bee hive they refuse....what do i do?

Reply

Not exactly a problem, but ...

I set a female villager's job to parent. She became an adept parent before the max population for the housing was reached, whereupon she became -well- a nymphomaniac. :-)

She was a Master Healer before, and now she seems to be going through a cycle of taking each of the men into the hut, -running- for the next one, then going back to Medicine for a bit before starting over. I suppose it's slowing down the other projects, so I should change her priorities, but she's so _dedicated_ it's funny.

I'm almost afraid if she makes Master Parent, she'll start researching how to build a red light.

Ok, I've searched google and everywhere else ... maybe my wording is just off or something.

However, I'm just wondering if there is a list of the pop up events and what happens for each answer you choose.

I just got one and the two options were to use bees wax or use tree sap for fixing the hut. I used

tree sap but "unwittingly harmed the tree" and now it doesn't have as much fruit regenerated as it had before.

I'd like to know what the other option does for you, and any other pop ups that anyone has kept track of would be nice. Anyone have a link for this?

Click on the hive, is there still enough honey to harvest? If there is, then make sure the person you are dropping there is set to farming in their preferences, and just keep dropping them. Eventually they will get it.

Dana -

I don't know of a place to find all of the options, but I know a few. For instance, the hut repair:

If you use tree sap, you damage the trees. If you use beeswax, you damage the hive.

A fun one is the crate of beans. It offers two choices: have them eat/drink it, or use it as fertilizer. What happens is:

If they consume it, they all run around like maniacs on a caffeine high, because that was a crate of coffee beans. If you use it as fertilizer, the trees will all bear massive fruit, and the villagers will run around like maniacs as well.

Reply

Same problem I saw someone else post- I have fixed the lift, but when it rains, I try to put someone on it. What happens usually is they won't stand still long enough for it to rise, they tend to just step off it. But even when I can get them to stay, the lift rises without them. Without the lift, my people always end up dying. Any suggestions?

You will hear some magical kind of sound and I think that means there's a collectible because when I hear that sound a collectible appears oh and turtle shells appear near the mating hut and sea stuff appear in the reef.

It sounds like you're not hitting the hotspot on the lift, because even if it is not raining, if you drop an adult on the right spot, they will stand there for several minutes. Where on the lift are you dropping them?

Lola -

Have you planted the orchard yet? That will get you some food. If you have and the trees are stripped, the best you can do is religiously gather mushrooms and create food until you can get enough tech points to buy level 2 faction (nature or magic) to get the herb needed to repel the sharks. Once the sharks are gone, your villagers can fish for unlimited food.

Grinnyp:

Thanks for that. I found the spot, which on my screen is actually in front of the lift rather than on it. Even then, a couple of times the villager stood there until right before the lift raised enough to drop the fruit, then took a step off. But I finally got it!

Doubling up on Shrooms:

This should apply for every item you find on the ground children can pick up, i NEVER had farmers and one time not even researchers because of this. *PS THIS ALSO WORKS ON THOSE TABLETS YOU GET*

Yes you can get two items out of one, by pausing the game first, dropping one child on this item, hitting unpause/pause very quickly then drop the second child on it...but...

If the childs menu bar/paperdoll says:

Gathering Mushrooms:
you have done it correctly
Says nothing on it:
you have done it incorrectly

plain and simple but...

If it says nothing then you have either done it too fast, or too slow, here is two things you can do:

1)IF YOU JUST SAW IT SPAWN IN FRONT YOU, perfect, you can drag both children away and hit unpause/pause (quickly preferably) and retry.

2)You have hit the buttons too fast, in this case you can HOVER the second child over the one picking it up....as soon as you hit unpause immediately drop the hovering child, he/she should pick up the item.

These two ways were almost foolproof for me, you can almost never miss a beat, and if you do its because the time it took for you to acquire second child the item rate simply vanished/ran out.

*Didnt knw if your site had this but i had to put it since i never use farmers until the sharks are gone cuz i like to see how much honey the bee hive can make before it stops, like how the orchid trees stop at 1000*

garfield_369 June 12, 2010 6:08 PM

Starving??

So you are starving, i have never starved before and i never used farmers....

Reccomendation 1:

Clearing bees, Growing Orchid, Ridding Sharks, Repairing Lift are the only ways you can interact with your adults to get foods.
All of which are previously posted by site owner, which is on the first page of site itself.

Reccomendation 2:

Doubling up on shrooms, especially red ones.
This was posted on my last and my first post on this site, named Doubling up on Shrooms..it has full details on how to double everytime, its almost full gauruntee not to fail.

Reccomendation 3:

Instead of playing it solid, zooming around getting c-tunnel syndrome, and worrying bout starving:

Take a few days break from it where you know ull be there to do this....
Keep your game on pause for days, go into it during it paused and drag your cheif over the food supply...unpause to let chief do magic food then pause and leave the game.

Every 24th hour go back into it, same time everyday, and unpause just do to this, within a few days you should get some decent food.

These are the only ways to acquire foods where you have full control, sometimes a villager finds something in the water, at that point if you are starving id reccomend pausing when you find it and read posts about it before you make your decision.

If these dont help with starving, and you wish to restart id reccomend to do so and prob do it myself.

Waffles -

Dropping them on the spot where the scaffolding was built won't work, once that scaffolding is built there's no other use for that spot. Drop your chief and the builders on the top half of the statue, the part that is laying on the ground. That should get the repairs started.

Ericka -

What message are you getting when you drop your builders on the broken lift? Don't drop your chief on the lift, that won't do anything.

Regarding the doubling of shrooms and collectibles, only for VV3, I can actually get TRIPLE collectibles by

dropping a kid on the object, and immediately pause. Then, find another kid and drop them on the object. If you get the bar saying "picking mushroom" etc, then proceed to step 3: get ANOTHER kid, and hold them hovering over the first 2, but pretty close, as if they were also going to pick up. As soon as you release the pause, drop the third kid as well.

About half the time, if I have timed it just right I have had a triple pick-up! I just discovered this today after months of playing. It does not seem to work in VV4, because when you get 2 kids on the same object, they play tag or have a jumping contest. And I am trying, but haven't reached a quadruple pickup yet.

I have a problem. I've finished clearing the rubble a while a go, but halfway true the tabletpieces just stopt showing up. So now I have like eight. And the other four never showed up. I waited quit a while to see if they would(had the game on and off multiple times), but i'm not getting anything, not even double ones. Have I done something wrong then?
Also, I see everybody talking about events, and how some get one everyday. But in all the while I've been playing the game, which is by now houers and houers(I've played like 3/4 of the game), I've had like one event. Maybe two, but that's all(I'm playing the game in fast mode).
I really hope someone can help me

You know, in the beginning, after you choose a chief you can stock up on foods by dropping the chief on the food bin to create magic food. Pause the game, change your PC settings to tomorrow, and make more food. You can keep doing that to get lots of food in the beginning.

Jamie & Jessica -

If the statue gets stuck, you can try dropping your chief at the base of the path, sometimes that gets things moving again. The statue getting stuck is a glitch in the game, if the problem persists you should contact the technical support of the company where you purchased it to see if they have a fix.

Don't know if this will work with all games but I found out I can pause the game on VV3 and speed up to the next day then place the Cheif on the food hut to make magic food and unpaues the game and he makes magic food then pause it again after he's done and change it to the following day and do it all over again I did it ten times and it let me make 1200 food with out affecting the villiage. But the key is to pause the game and speed it up then unpause it when you want the Cheif to make the food. I also went back and put my date back to what is was supposed to be and it didn't change anything I still have the 1200 food in my food bin. Though this would help those of us that keep dieing cause of food shortages. But I think I will only work on this game.
