What is the pile of rocks for by the love hut? I am always told need more research. I have bath, lift, memorial rock done. I have plenty of food and 35 villagers. I am told no room for anymore babies. My folks are working up to 150,000 tech points. Do you have any info for building that hut? Is that the shop? Any screen shots would help. What should I buy? I am level 2 everything
nature. How do I move froward at this point. Thank you

To whispering2u:

That pile of rocks is to build another hut. You need level 3 Restoration to build it. After that, your population will be able to go to 90+.

To whispering2u:

If you're talking about the sewing hut, it shows up very late in the game. For me, usually after everything is built, after all puzzles are solved, and after buying all technology. The foundation for it will appear to the right of the hut you are currently building.

To Illusion:

Once you have the lift repaired (the broken machine in the orchard), it's a matter of timing. You need to get a villager onto the platform just as it starts raining. Check question #2 in the FAQ at the top of this page for more information.

The tablet pieces appear near the bottom of the screen when you start clearing rubble. They are random like the other collectibles.

I have 2 questions:

1) Will I still be able to collect tablets after the rubble-clearing project is finished?

Reply

To Soveriegnty:

Look at question #5 in the FAQ at the top of this page.

To Illusion:

1. Doing laundry doesn't directly increase any skill, but it's necessary for the smooth function and health of the tribe. It's like when they eat. You can interrupt them if it's important, but generally you should let them do it.

2. Studying medicine does not increase tech or science points. It only trains doctors to Trainee, Adept, and Master levels.

3. The hut you see next to the love hut is a regular housing hut for population purposes. The sewing hut will appear separately late in the game.

To NMT:

1. Yes, you will still be able to collect the tablet pieces in the same area where the rubble was cleared.

2. Have the remains of all of the people been picked up for burial? They don't show up on the Roster of the Dead until they are buried. Otherwise, try restarting the game and see if they show up.

Are any points gained when the chief contemplates the tribe, thinks, or lectures? Do the villagers gain anything from attending a lecture? How about the stories the chief tells to the children... is there any benefit? Thanks so much for your time in regards to this inquiry!

Reply

To Nickel:

About the chief -

When the chief "contemplates the tribe" it's when there are still challenges for the tribe. It will change to "proud of the tribe" when there is plenty of food and shelter, etc. No points for any of it. It's just something the chief thinks about when he/she isn't busy with something.

There are no points or benefits when the chief does a regular lecture for all villagers. It's just something to do and it's a good way to get everyone in one place if you want to look for collectibles without villagers getting in the way.

However, there is a benefit when the chief lectures only the children (by dropping the chief on a child). This is how children gain experience points before reaching adulthood. Toward the end of the lecture, each child will get a white dot of sparkly light on his/her head. This is when the unit of experience is given to the child.

Need help please. I have 11/12 of all shells, feather, coral and tablets. Trying finish my collection.

Reply

To Illusion:

You need a Master Builder to build the scaffolding, not the Chief.

To Roseofsharon:

For Puzzle #4 -

Puzzle 4 is clearing the leaves located on the far right of the village, below the cliff area. Just drop any of the villagers on it and they will start clearing the leaves away to reveal the Roster of the Dead. Here's a screenshot of where the leaves are found.

http://images.jayisgames.com/hs_pam_virtualvillagers3_clearleaves.jpg

For finding rare collectibles -

Every 24 hours, you can place your chief at the top of the path, just to the right of the door leading into the secret room. The chief will dance in a circle and then point. When that happens, there is a rare collectible somewhere on the island. You have to search for it just like you do for all collectibles. It only remains for a short time and will disappear if you don't find it fast enough. Also remember that even though it's guaranteed to be a rare collectible when the chief points it out, it may not be the specific one you're missing. They occur randomly.

Reply

How many master builders do you need to move statue? Thanks.

[Edit: ALL of them!! No, seriously, the statue will hold up to 15 or 20 builders and the more you use, the faster it will go. They don't even have to be Master level. As long as they have some builder training, even Trainee and Adept can work on the statue. -Pam]

Leave it to a child player to figure this out...if you pause the game and drag a child to the extreme upper right ocean, they will stay there forever (or until needed). It may take a few tries before they "stick" to the spot, but once there, they stay put. This works well when you need to locate a child to pick up a collectible or a mushroom.

To build the statue -

You have to put your chief on the statue first to direct the work. Then drop trained builders. You can drop them at the base of the statue, or you can drop them on the hot spot on the path near the scaffolding. It will say something about seeing a good place to work on the statue.

my tribe chief stopped directing the work on the statue... so my other builders stopped too.

Loads of tech points? Lucky. I've got level two of everything but faction and medicine. I'd recommend getting lvl2 faction ASAP! You _NEED_ the benefit from that.

The benefit is part of the potion to get rid of the *major spoiler ahead*

Sharks so you can fish in peace (No more food trouble EVER, from what I understand. (34k of 50k tech points right now, lol.))

Also, I'd say the improvements to science are MUCH needed too. I did the math on it, and lvl2 science DOUBLES the normal tech point gain.

As I type this, I decided to look into how many tech points each level of scientist gets. Comment regarding this is forthcoming. Also, JIGuest.

Try seeing if you could get those in your tribe who know BEST about food to cook it. If they do a poor job, maybe they need a leader. If it still doesn't work, maybe you need more of them.

Well, I've done everything. All the puzzles have been solved. I've been waiting for the last of the collections to be completed, but I only seem to find common items. The tile collection just stopped when the work on rubble removal was finished. I know I can have the chief point out a rare item once a day, but she seems to point out things I already have.

So except for the collections, there seems to be nothing else to do. I have quite a few young people lying on the ground, with the caption, "unsure what to do" under them. Just what comes after all the puzzles are solved? Is the game over? How boring!

I guess you got the pearl puzzle solved if you're done with all of the puzzles. It just takes time for the rest of the collectibles to show up.

do you know you can fast forward your game? I don't know if it has been posted here, but you can have your game advanced. Just go to control panel and adjust date and time. During the first time of the game, I kept on pausing my game and advancing my date one date one day ahead. Since the chief could only create magic food just once in 24 hours, this trick is super helpful. Just make sure to pause your game before doing this trick. If you're a little impatient in waiting for some projects to be finished (e.g. waiting for hut to be constructed), you could advance your time little by little (without pausing the game) for progress. Don't overdo it especially when you haven't obtained the puzzle where you could get unlimited supply of fish. I did mine too much and my tribe died of starvation. I think there might me a little disadvantage though, and I'm not sure if it's true, but doing this might make you miss collecting items for your collection.
