Thank you Megan!! I have another question. If you move only one person to the ark, does the whole tribe go or you have to do it individually for each character? Thank you! ^^

To Alex:

You only have to put one person on the ark for everyone to go to the new island.

how do you make them construct on the shipyard? i tried placng people on it but they rest or do other stuff

Reply

Hi to all of you!

I dont know if this is a bug but i'll share it for everyone who wants more stardust

make sure that you have enough wood to provide your needs for this,, build 4 fire pits(including your 1st)and be sure to distribute them well on the grass of the island when you have done this try checking your tribesmen all of their comments should be sweating more..feeling hot..would like to swim.. nothing can be done with this heat thing.. then summon a rain and stardust will start falling every 1-2 min..the fastest rate is EVERY SECOND..moondust is 5-7 mins.. and fastest rate of every 10-15 seconds..works for me though i stopped doing it and demolished the extra fire pits

Hi, everytime I try to sail to a new Island, a window pops up and claims theres an error... I read several ways to fix it but nothing has helped so far.. I do NOT want to start over so I would be glad for any tips everyone can give me. PLEASE help me, I'm going nuts here...

Reply

umm. how can i start to build the shipyard and ark?? i already have level 3 technology but still can't?? HELP PLEASE!!

and another question
why does my game(sometimes)crash and get stuck on the load screen,the"SAILING TO YOUR TRIBE"dialog but i can hear them working the flame the chopping of wood the construction and rock gathering but the screen is still loading??though i can still save+exit it and play again to fix it.it still sometimes go back on the loading screen while i'm CURRENTLY PLAYING especially when i'm deleting some flowers..
any suggestions pam??

Reply

To Mark:
I think you also need to max out the level for construction. About the two problems you have with a crash, I have them to, and I think they're just bugs, probably nothing we can do about them since My Tribe does have quite a few bugs.

--

After maxing out all four categories for 'Science', are science points still necessary?

Reply

To Joanna:

You just need to have all of the jobs covered. You need some on construction, some on wood gathering, and some on rock gathering. It looks like they aren't doing much, but they will. A good way to get the large structures to go faster is to close the game for awhile. Let me know if you still have trouble.

To Thesmiler and Mark:

The game crashing like that is indeed a bug. According to the developer of the game, it happens when you have trees that are still saplings. Either wait for all of them to grow to full size or put stardust on them for instant growth.

To Mark:

Alex is correct. You need level 3 Construction to build the shipyard and ark.

To Alex:

There's no need for science points after you've purchased all technology. :)

about the ship, actually it was an supposed to be an error for me, but then i found it as a GLITCH,i can now make ark faster and yet so easy
but im not sure if it works to everyone coz it wrks for me everytime.

first build a shipyard but DONT'T complete it, just place it somewhere else, then place someone and let them try to build it, don't worry if it's 0% coz lot easier, then demolish it.

now check ur BUILD option, you will now be build an ARK. making it would take time but hey you saved lots of time making the shipyard ;)

Help!!
my profile was accidentally overwritten by my sis,so i can't do anything about it right?! i don't know if you can help me into this(but i sure hope you can!)
but is there a certain file from the contents of my tribe folder where the users profile is located,that i can do a backup file so i can't lose another file in case?

To Mark:

I'm afraid you cannot retrieve your profile once it's been overwritten. Make sure your sis starts her own profile to play the game.

I don't know about saving a backup copy of a game file. It may be possible, but it's over my head if it is.

Hi! How does one delete a tree? Is there a potion for this?

Also, I've tried creating rocks with the potion "rocks+sea+stardust" and clicked it on a vast expanse of grass. No rock was created. Same in sand. Are there procedures/conditions I have to wait for to do this?

Thanks!

I ran out of rocks for my tribe to use and I have used the potion; rock, seawater, and stardust, many times and it is not working.... Any other suggestions?
Thanks

Reply

To Soleil:

I don't believe you can delete a tree. You just have to chop it down.

To create rocks, make sure they you are clicking on grass with lots of open space around it. You can't make a rock if it's too close to another object.

To Jacqueline:

Please see my answer above.

Thank you for our reply. So sorry for the multiple posting; the server kept returning an error message and it turns out my question was already posted.

Anyway, is there a potion for making sure that a baby is male or female?

Thanks

Reply

By the way, I tried the rock potion on a vast expanse of grass with nothing nearby (3-4 fingers circumference if you put our hand on the PC screen). Sitll no rocks.

What else can be done?
Thanks

Reply

To Soleil:

What kind of message do you get at the top of the screen when you try to do the potion for rocks? Also, let's double check and make sure you've got the correct formula:

Rocks+Sea Water+Stardust

As for determining the gender of the baby... no, there's no potion for that. But it stays fairly even whenever babies are born. I don't think I've ever seen anyone in danger of losing their tribe from lacking a particular gender. :)

Reply

Hi again! Thanks for the quick reply.

yes, that is the formula I used for creatng rocks, and I made sure there's lot of space. The message always says, "The formula was used up. Nothing happened." or something like that.

What should I be doing?

Thanks!

Reply

Hi Soleil:

If you are certain that you're using the correct potion and that you're leaving lots of empty green space, then I just don't know what the problem could be.

Have you been successful making rocks at all? Or you always had trouble with it?

At this point, the only thing I can suggest is that you go back to the site where you originally purchased the game and download it again. It's possible that your game has a glitch in it that may be corrected in a new download. I'm afraid that's all I have for you. I'm sorry. :(

Reply

Thank for answering all my questions before Pam. (:

I was wondering, is it only possibe to use the youth potion when their hair is gray? I have a person at age 73 and his hair didn't turn gray yet, so I just want some advice, so I know how fast to set the game. xD Thanks in advance!

Reply

Hi Alex.

The main thing used for deciding whether to give another dose of the youth potion is their age. There are rare instances when they get old, but their hair doesn't turn gray. If they are over 65, go ahead and give them the potion. If you get them too young, it will just say it didn't work and you can give it again after it wears off.

To Astrid909:

That's something that happens further in the game. Just keep dropping them on each other and they'll have babies.

To Femetal1:

That's another thing that happens as you progress in the game. It's not a bug or anything. It just happens.

Reply

Thanks Pam! It probably is a glitch. it has always been a problem, and I have never been able to make a single rock at all. Oh well, there's always moondust for the pile hehehe.

Are there any islands that have Stardust, Moondust and the Trilobyte in it? It seems the perfect start-up island, but I have never seen any.

Stardust, Ore and Trilobyte islands also seem like good start-up islands, but there doesn't seem to be any either.

The 50,000 science points form the Trilobyte is rather useless after the first island since you cannot move to any other island until you've researched Construction to level 3 and built the ark. Since that's the one that takes up the most science points, the Trilobyte boon is not very useful after the first island.

Once the towers have been built, there will be lots of moondust and stardust, so the speed brought about by the ore is not so useful anymore. One can just use the celestial fallout to speed cosntruciton of anything.

So if anyone knows of a "Stardust-Moondust-Trilobyte" island or a "Stardust-Ore-Trilobyte" island, please post it here.

Thanks!

Lots of islands, but none with the Star-Moon-Trilobyte combo or Star-Trilobyte-Red Rock.

Ok guys, guess what, i feel so amazingly clever right now so please don't laugh at me if you all already knew this.

star and moon dust towers... anyway. once you reach construction level 3 and you can build the stardust(celestial tower, if you wanna get technical) and moondust (lunar) towers so that you can get star/moon dust, you don't have to! All you do is place one and then demolish it, without wasting time and resources and you'll get the huge amount of dust every time you do this! It's so cool! YAY!

When you breed a 100/100 female and 100/100 male it does not ALWAYS produce a 100/100 baby sometimes it will produce a baby with 100 strength and 99 mental strength. Just thought I would let everyone know. But stardust fixes that!

what's the 9th mystery object?!

Reply

To Jen:

If you have all of the mysteries solved, it doesn't matter which ones are on your new island. You keep all benefits of the mysteries throughout the rest of the game. You can perhaps choose the ones that are prettiest, like the fountain and flower tree. Also, the glowing stump won't show up at all on another island once you've solved it.

To Ziuu:

To my knowledge, there are only 8 mysterious objects.

Can my tribe bring the lodestone it got when moving to a new island? Can I choose the next island or is it randomly selected for my tribe?

Thanks.

By the way, despite the billion s of islands, none have the combination I had mentioned in a previous post. Oh well... :-)

As to the babies: It seems that aside from the parents having 100mental/100physical, legendary competencies in at least 3 tasks (gathering, construction, science etc) seems to ensure that their offspring will have 100/100.

Reply

Why does the game crash when I try deleting flowers? Is there a cure for this?
Thanks

Reply

To Soleil:

Yes, your lodestone will go with you to the new island. It will be in your science lab when you build it.

You may be right about none of the islands having the combination you mentioned! I tried finding one, too, and couldn't. That's very strange, though, because you'd think that sooner or later it would come up.

The game crashing when you delete flowers is a bug. There's not a cure because, unfortunately, it only happens on random computers. There is a workaround, though:

When it says "sailing to your tribe", you can still move your mouse around and click the "menu" button at the bottom-right corner of the screen. You can then click "Save and Exit" and go back to the main menu. You can then click "Play" again to go back to the game and continue to play.

Also, if this happens to you a lot, you can erase flowers using the "erase all" button, rather than by erasing them individually.

To Jules:

You need to click on the clothing building and it will bring up a screen for you to pick out new clothes.

To Wendy:

There is a delete/erase button in the same window you use to build the flowers. Be aware, though, that there is a bug in some games where the game will crash if you erase more than one flower. If that happens to you, please see the response I posted to Soleil right above yours.

So.. when it got about time to build my shipyard. I was thinking of ways to make it go faster and decided to use my moondust. Well it turns out that moondust adds to the percentage that is already done. It can also demolish something instantly.

Reply

The way i make the ark building faster is go to build the shipyard and as soon as you set it on the ground demolish it. Even though you didn't build shipyard yet, the ark will appear on the build screen. Then you can go straight to building the ark without having to build the shipyard first.

Hi--this is a fun game--although getting my main guy to 969 got a little tedious! Everyone was pretty well maxed on all abilities, and it was very weird to pick who not to youthen so as to keep having some kids....

I think I solved just about everything (with walkthrough help when needed!), except one: Some crates and barrels emit a mist that engulfs the person who opened it. The mists are different colors, and it certainly seems they must have effects--probably different effects depending on the mist colors--but I haven't been able to figure of what the effects are.

I would love to know.
