Don't you get a little attached to some of the little buggers? One of my favorites just died, she had many children:

Had "Mr. Biggles" come to the lab and "watched" him. A few minutes later one of my villagers was seen carrying a round object toward the door. I clicked on him to see what he was doing and he dropped it! I think it may have been the last gem for the door even though I don't have the statue yet. Any idea if this is correct and if my villager will do it again or did I mess it up?

HELP! I have 9 villagers, only one male. I did try getting him to have a male descendant, but it just didn't work. All in all, he had 7 daughters and now he died (I accidentally left it on fast mode overnight) ARGH. So now I'm left with 8 female villagers, the youngest is 8 years old. I just paused the game. I'm really afraid they would die off without anymore children and all my solved puzzles would be wasted!! What do I do??

To repair the research lab I know you need to find 5 objects I have four of them but I can't find the muli colour Stick. I know it's in different places for each game but were did y'all find yours? And what exactly does it look like I have looked all over the map and dropped people on everything that looked the slightest bit weird. And does anyone have a screen shot or photo of one please I'm really stuck Thanxs.

When trying to make a master parent I took a 18 year old and a 66 year old to do it. For some reason she never got pregnant so you can just drag and drop them together as many times as you want. Without getting any kids.

Rosalia and Claire,

The Multi-Color Stick is always randomly placed each time you start a new game. Keep looking for it! Just in case you would like to know, the multi-color stick is blue on one of the end, yellow and red at the middle and brown (I think it's brown)at the other end.

I hope this helps =D

Reply
stealingmagpie January 4, 2011 9:56 AM

By the way, here is the list of the multi-colour stick locations I knew up to now.

1. On top of the path, near the stone door
2. In front of the path near the statue
3. The shore
4. The ampitheatre
5. Opposite the rubbles under the healing area

The next two are the trickiest

6.Press number 3 first, then look on lower
left corner
7.Press number 3 again, but look on lower
right corner this time

I hope you'll find it :)

Some of the random events are surprisingly brutal! It's not so bad if you lose food or tech points or something but I just had to choose between trying to catch fish during an extra low tide or not. I chose

to try to catch them and a huge wave carried off two of my villagers, including my chief! they aren't even on the roster of the dead!

I think the iPad version has a glitch.

Now my tribe has no chief, and I've tried the robe on all my adult villagers. I know some of LDOW's other games on iPad have glitches, because my Virtual Families store hasn't updated in a loooooong time. Help?

wait for it to rain. As soon as it starts raining, IMMEDIATELY put someone on the lift. Then be patient! Eventually, it will fill with water and carry your villager to the tree. You'll see a seed fall down.

The lift only goes up in the rain. Is the lift completely repaired? Are you trying it in the rain?

If you see a scaffolding there, then it is built and you don't need to worry about it. The scaffold is small and doesn't take a lot of time to build.

When I try to get tech points to rebuild the lift either there aren't enough adept builders or the researchers get worried about food and wander off! If I do they all die anyway because I can never get enough good and tech points to get the potion for the sharks!!! How do I get past all of this?? Am I doing anything wrong???? Please help???!!!!

On past games I have got as far as the rain dance but never as far as 2nd level faction which I badly need. Also all my trained people are dead. I'm going to start over as I haven't got far but I still don't know how to stop them from starving! Any tips???

RubyBlack:

When food gets way too low, on the game only about once every day, for very brief periods of time. Drag your chief to the food bin and have her create magic food. When you see the food supply is very low again, pause the game and wait until the next day. Eventually, either you will get all the tech points you need or you will have so much food that you can go ahead and play for long enough to get all the tech points. Once you've got enough for level 2 restoration and fixed the lift, put it on half speed while you wait for rain.

Boo:

Sometimes random events happen when a villager washes up on the shore. The game might "see" that you have no way to create a new generation (it does that in virtual families) and make that happen. :)

So I've found all of the items for the Alchemy lab but am still unable to find that fifth item, the multi colored knife/stick thing. I have checked the list that someone posted a few above this about possible locations for it, but it is not in any of those locations. I have gone over each part of the outside edge of my village inch by inch and still cannot see it. I have also gridded the entire village itself and again, nothing.

Is this some glitch or am I seriously blind?

Reply

Nevermind. It turns out I already found it while I was collecting items for the Alchemy lab way in the beginning. But what I don't understand it why I have all five items, but the Research side of the lab is still in ruins? I though that I was supposed to be cleaned up with the fifth item.

If not, how do I clean up the research side of the lab?

i will tell you why there was a storm that appeared and what the person that will appear on the final puzzle said

the storm

did you see the faces on the storm? those were actually the faces of the prince of magic and the princess of nature. They controlled the storm to make the villagers rebuild their beloved city again

what they said

1st scene:Do not be alarmed. you who bring us before you. we are strangers to you. but you are not strangers to us we will tell you our sad story. for this is why you are here

2nd scene: our love was forbidden. to preserve the balance of isola, the elders demanded a union between one naturalist and one magician. instead we were both from the same faction. we married a secret in a moonlit groove. it was our hope that the fragile balance between nature and magic would endure our forbidden union, but... one cannot choose love, it is love that chooses

3rd scene: our betrayal undid everything. there was great unrest and for many moons the city has been deserted and forgotten

4th scene: we have waited so long for you and what you have done to our beloved city gives us hope that the balance may yet, be restored.
You, and your children, has brought us hope.
perhaps we can finally rest. Please never let it be forgotten that what we did, we did for love

¡Hi!
Rose: I have been doing the same thing -playing with the pc's clock to speed up the progress of the game-, and I actually did some mistakes and I had all my villagers die because of them (BIG MISTAKE)... but I finally found a safe way of doing that.

Some tips:
Change the clock for 2 or 4 hours at a time, and check that all your villagers are healthy before playing with the clock again.
You should train 2 or 3 doctors in order to make sure that there won't be strange diseases during the speed-up process.
Have 2 or 3 women trained in parenting, just to have lots of babies all the time.

In order to solve your weird aging issue:
Close the game an synchronize the pc's clock with the real time. Then start the game again. Your villagers should start aging normally.

Hi!
Upinde Wa Mvua:

I had lots of issues trying to make my villagers get ahead while they were starving, but I found the answer for your question just above in this same walk-through: Question #2, points 1 and 2.

In few words, do your best to collect enough tech points and buy Level 2 Faction, to make the potion for the sharks. Then you will have infinite food by fishing.

My advise is to speed up your pc's clock, but 2 hours at a time, just to make sure that all the things you are doing are working fine, and that your villagers are doing their best in the lab (try to have ALL your villagers work in the lab because that's the key to have 150000 tech points faster).
