HOW TO INCREASE STRENGTH

I haven't seen this and I thought it would help. It sure did me when I figured it out.

Wait until it rains, then use the "increase strength" potion (rocks, rain, golden relic) and give it to everyone. HOWEVER, in order to get everyone, you also need to use the "Summon Thunderstorm" (veggies, rain, moondust)potion a few times, thus insuring steady rain. Incidentally, you can collect a golden relic every time, or so it seems, that you summon a storm so you can build up your stock

Hello. This is a wonderful resource for this game. I've pretty much found the answers to all my questions except for this one. Even though I used the youth potion on some female tribe members the game will not let them have babies. I get the "so and so feels the younger members of the tribe" message. Does that mean I have to wait for all the other women to be too old in order for the "restored" women to be able to have babies again? Some of them I restored because they have great abilities I want to keep passing down.

Reply

I have noticed that once you give an adult with gray hair the potion, they can have kids again. Just thought I'd share.

Reply

To Polgara,

Once you give the youth potion and the woman is restored to "feels like 36", she is supposed to be able to have babies again. If you wait until after she hits 45, she'll be too old.

I know I have seen the answer before and now I can't find it. My question is The game keeps shutting off after about 5 min. of playing. I have the volume on and it still keeps shutting off. I have a mac not a pc. Can anyone help? Thanks

To Shelly:

This is what we have from the developers about the game crashing after a few minutes of play:

"Game crashing after a few minutes of play - Turn your sound up so that it's not QUITE at zero. It will crash in version 1.0 if volume is at zero."

Can anyone please help me? I already achieved technology 3, so how do I build a shipyard? Please help!

Reply

Thanks everyone for help with my question on the youth potion. As it turns out there ARE rules for the newly restored on having babies. The game won't let you if anyone else possibly can. That's why the "so and so thinks..." message. Once I had the only woman able to have children still go off to "find the stork" I was able to quickly have the two "feels like 36!" women have babies. Pretty logical really. Now to my next question lol. So I only have the dang flower tree left and I keep putting the last flower in and it disappears when I try to drop someone on it to grow it. Ugh. Any tips?

Reply

i was just curious the game states
The maximum population is 50. Nothing will increase that number. weird tho i have 51 ppl just our of the blue i started playing and i have a baby that came out of nowhere giving me 51 ppl...lol can anyone else confirm they got more than 50 ppl in their tribe? i know i tried before but it always told me i have reached the max so i don't know how that happened

Has anyone found an island with the fountain, the red rock, and the grey rock mysteries? I've been searching for like 20 minutes and I'm starting to think there just isn't one! Please help a girl out with the island number if you know it.

To Gatinhadosp:

To build a shipyard -

You need level 3 construction. Then you just click on the Build button and select the shipyard on the screen that comes up. You have to place it half on water and half on land.

To Polgara:

About the flower tree -

If you have people with agriculture experience, they will come plant flowers on their own without you dropping them on it. Maybe try that and see if you can get the last flower planted.

To Gypsie:

Several people have been able to go over 50 by using the twins potion and timing it so that there are several huts available for several couples. One person even claimed to have a population of 70ish. It's not impossible to go over 50, but 50 is the set population cap for the game.

To Bebopbek:

I haven't kept track of my islands like that, but you'll find it, I'm sure. You can also split it on two different islands. Like, find an island that has one or two of the mysterious objects that you need, then find another island later that has the last of them.

Someone was asking the other day if star/moon dust ONLY falls on grass and everyone (including myself) thought that it did. Well yesterday I had 3 tribes complete a tower in each one stardust fell on the beach, it also happened in one regular fall (no tower completion.) I am was thinking maybe when I got the shower of stardust there just was not enough room on the grass for all 30 of them to fall? No idea but I picked up 7 stardust from the beach yesterday and not the edge either, some were far into the beach.

Also, on one of my tribes I only got 11 stardust with the shower. Any idea why that would happen? Of course it was the island I needed it the most on.

Oh and now I feel stupid since I JUST figured out that you can see the fallen stardust and crates/barrels from the map. Duh.

Reply

Another crate

10 Moondusts

Reply

One more thing...Everyone that is worried about the lodestones. I got three crates at the beginning of the game with lodestones on my first island and I used them all. It took a week and a half before I got another one. I had moved through 6 islands before I got that crate. If you just wait and check every crate as they come sooner or later you will get one with lodestones.

Reply

Hmm I just discovered the game yesterday, as well as this site here (when I googled My Tribe, looking for potions).

Anyway, my problem is the flowers. I know they aren't really a required use feature, but I like them. Sometimes however I muck up when planting them. When I try to use the erase feature, to erase a flower, the game completely locks me out. It puts up the loading screen (the one that says "sailing to your island") and the screen is grey'ed over. I get my curser turned into an hour glass symbol. But nothing happens.. it never loads anything, it just stays froze that way.

However.. the game is still running, I can hear things happening in the game, I can her my people chopping wood, or stone, or building. But I can't do anything. I can't even move my curser around the screen, it's frozen in place.

So I have to ctrl-alt-delete and open my task manager, and tab down to the game then tab it to end task. Shut the game down this way, then restart it.

The only problem is, as I said, it costs me 4 tokens each time I restart the game. I have taken to completely avoiding planting flowers. Because I know if I make a mistake, I will forget and try to erase it.

Anyhow.. anyone else have this problem/know how to fix it?

[Edit: This is a known problem in the current version of the game. While there is no "fix" for it crashing, there is a workaround: Apparently 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. -Jay]

To Frankiegrrl2:

This may help with the trees -

I would suggest that you concentrate on getting enough science points to purchase level 3 construction. Once you have that, you can build a shipyard, which has to be placed half on land and half on water. You'll be able to build that, I'm sure, because of its location on the water. After that, you can build the ark, which also has to be half on water. By that point, maybe some of your trees will be used up or you can just travel to another island. And be careful where you place trees next time! :)

I was wondering if this happened to anyone else. When one of my tribes people dies and they are like 99 or 100 the tombstone says they are 70 something...is that a glitch or is that normal in the game?

i cant find anymore of the gold. i had 3 but i tried to use it and the poitions exploded and i lost it. anyone know how to get more??????

To Umm Zayneb:

If someone dies who has been getting the youth potion, the age on the tombstone is the "feels like" age instead of the actual age. It's unfortunate, but I don't think it's a glitch.

Reply

With the flower mystery, if you mess it up you don't have to wait until you go to a new island.

You just need to 'Build' flowers, then click Erase All. It will tell you that it will erase ALL flowers planted on the island, even ones that you didn't plant. Say ok. It doesn't actually remove those round the flower mystery. Then you can try again with your pattern. I had to try about 3 times until I got it right.

I don't know if anyone noticed or not but the babies seem to always stay along the shore. lol it seemed really funny to me and they also most of the time stick close to one another.

OK I understand that to be able to run more than two profiles I need never to have deleted a profile. But I have - twice!

I think I remember someone posting something like this a few days back and it seems everyone including myself thought they were talking about their tribes people sleeping on their feet... but perhaps not. Anyway, just now I went into my most recent tribe and everyone is just standing around, even the kids and babies. They are all awake and not exhausted, I have huts, they have wood/food ect (for now.) The last thing I did before it happened was give this tribe its first babies. While they stand there they do move their heads and look around, and their status changes to whatever they think they are doing (eating, fishing etc) but they never actually move. If you drop them on a task they will do it for a moment then stop again. I have no idea what is going on. I tried changing the game speed, opening and closing the entire game and nothing has fixed them. Any ideas?

I had 51 people , twins birthed when I had 49, then 1 died and for days I have had 50. Today while playing a baby appeared giving me 51 again. GYPSIE said something about this the other day, does anyone know why a baby would just appear?
In response to CLARISSA, my tomestone was behind a building I did not see it until I demolished a building.

Reply

To Clarissa:

Tombstones look pretty much like you would expect. They are gray tablets standing upright. As Luckie said, they can sometimes appear behind something. I've had several I couldn't find and I'm sure they were behind a building or something. The tombstone appears wherever the person is when he/she dies. I've even had one appear in the middle of the ocean.

To Amanda:

Your tribe probably needs something to do. If your stockpiles are full and there are no buildings being constructed, they have nothing to do. If you put down a foundation for something, I bet they will get active again.

The tribe has plenty to do, they just stand there and the status says they are doing things but they just stand there. I tried to put one in a hut to sleep to see if it would help and it says "going to sleep" but he won't actually go into the hut. They just stand there and they are going to starve. The wood/rock/food sheds are built completly yet, but even so they only have around 50 of each resource. I'm not sure what to do, but I am going to leave it running and see what happens (had it paused before to keep them from starving since they won't move)

Hi All,

I've been playing for a while now, and I have noticed something cool.

There is a crate that will make your villiger feel good an lift their mental and physical power to 100/100. The cool thing is, that regardless who he or she mates with, the first generation of babies will all have 100/100 mental and physical strenght too.

Hi all!

Is there any way to increase the maximum population to above 50 (not using the "twins all at once" method, I mean)? Is there some string in one of the .dat files that can be edited through Wordpad to increase the max?

Thanks,
TQC

Reply

To sberry 1404:

First make rain using a potion, then make a storm while it's raining, also using a potion. These are on the potion list, but the correct potions are -

Rain: Fish+Sea water+Stardust
Storm: Fish+Rain water+Moondust

The golden relic will appear somewhere on the beach at the start of the storm (not the rain). It only stays for awhile after the storm is over, so you have a little time to find it.

To TQC:

I'm not aware of a way to get the population over 50 other than the twins method.

I build a "change clothes hut" and I dress everyone who can't have children because they are too old, in black. You pick out the color top and bottom, put them in queue to make clothes and then hit the hut with a moon.

I dress people who can have babies in red.
I name each new generation with names that all start with an A. The next batchh of babies' names all will start with B, etc. That way, it is easier to keep track of the people.

I don't think you will find an island like you want. There will be enough room to house the max population and build all of the buildings. After that, there's not much left to do anyway. Once resources are depleted, you have to either replenish your current island or move to a new one. It's just the cycle of the game.

Reply

To Dedra:

Finishing the towers is the official way to get the dust showers and probably trophies. It does take longer than the ark and shipyard because it's a bigger project, just like the ark is a bigger project than the science lab.

A good way to get lots of progress on the large projects is to close the game for awhile. When you open it again, you'll have lots of progress on the tower.

I discovered something useful. If you want maxed babies, you don't have to have both parents maxed, only one. So far I have only had the mother maxed - I have yet to try to have maxed babies with a maxed father and unmaxed mother. So for instance, I had a mom with 86 physical, 100 mental, and a father with 68 physical, 78 mental, and had twins. One was 88 physical, 100 mental, the other was 86 physical, 100 mental. Using maxed mothers has worked for me each time I tried it.

Reply

To impurrfect:

There are a couple of known bugs in the game. I can't tell for sure which one may be giving you trouble from your description, but let's see if any of these will help.

  • Game crashing after a few minutes of play - Turn your sound up so that it's not QUITE at zero. It will crash in version 1.0 if volume is at zero.

  • Game crashing after you travel to a new island - Restart the game and ensure that any saplings you've planted have grown into trees before trying to travel to a new island again.

Failing, all that, you can check to see if you have the most current version, which is Version 1.02. If you have the previous version, you'll have to contact the site where you originally purchased the game about downloading the updated version.

I hope this is helpful. :)

Check the screenshot of the completed flower puzzle in the Walkthrough Guide at the top of this page to make sure you got the pattern correct.

As for the game crashing when you erase flowers -

Yes, that is a known bug that only happens on some machines. Suggested workaround from the developers of the game:

However, there is a workaround. Apparently 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.

Hey guys. I'm not sure if this was posted but I found a bug the 1st time I tried to build an Ark.

I was going to build a shipyard but when I laid the foundation, I decided the location wasn't right. The shipyard was still 0% completion when I demolished it. When I tried to build a yard again, the arj was already there. So I had the ark built without the yard, set sail and now on another island. Saved a lot of time.

Someone posted that the female can have another baby when the first baby changes from infant into a kid, which is about 3 years old. I haven't tested it myself but it sounds right.

The only thing I can think of is that maybe you are accidently interrupting the couple before they make it to the hut. Just be sure to not touch either of the parents after you drop them and they should make their way to a hut for a baby.

Hi Pam - Just wondered if you noticed that when you open the crate/barrel with the contaminated water, that the person who opened it loses physical strength points (I think it is five.) I didn't see this in the walkthrough. Also, a potion I didn't see listed is

Sea water, Moon dust, Wood -- this creates anxiety when used on an adult.

Thanks for the info. I had one thing I couldn't figure out and I found the answer here.

Mixx - I believe the ironwood tree only provides an unlimited source of ironwood (for potions), not regular wood for fires. But I could be wrong, so if someone knows better, inform me!

I have a question. I have been playing my tribe for awhile. I was just almost done building my lunar tower, and then I was going to set off for a new island. I had already built my boat. My 5-year-old son got on to My Tribe while I was busy with something else and started a new tribe. Is there any way to get back to my old tribe, or is it lost forever? I can't believe the game would make it so easy to lose all you're hard work by a push of a button. Can anyone help?

To Mixx:

The ironwood tree does not produce unlimited wood. It makes the wood stronger, such as for building. Once you first solve the mystery, your all wood is stronger and it stays that way throughout the rest of the game. The stump and Ever Tree do not show up on the rest of the islands because it's already been solved.

If the new game was started using the same profile, the first game has been overwritten and cannot be retrieved. You can, however, have more than one profile so that you can run more than one tribe at a time.

To anyone who knows alot about My Tribe,
I have a tribe that is ready to move to another island but since the tribe is so big i worry about the food and builing the new buildings. Is there any way I can have lots of star and moon dust come down at one time?
Thanks

Hey, my name is Shane and I've played My Tribe for awhile, not very long. I figured out and fixed a lot of problems, but this one I can't seem to figure out at all.

At first everything worked fine, but after awhile when I went to switch users because I accidently left it on for awhile without pausing and lost a lot of stuff, I made a new tribe and didn't change the name or anything. Just clicked new tribe.

The new game worked perfectly fine like it always did, but one day when I clicked switch user (I had 2 saved games) the game just went away like I had pushed quit.
The game still works, but I don't have a user name and every time I click switch user, it goes away. It just says welcome! where the user name should be, but the game still runs and saves. Is there anything I can do to fix it? I've re-downloaded and installed it, but it won't fix.

Some suggestions -

You may just want to spend some time before you sail collecting Moondust and Stardust. Completing the two towers will give you a shower of dust, too. You can get about 25 if you're quick enough to collect them all. You really won't need more than maybe 10 Moondust when you start a new island. Just enough to fill the foodpile and complete sleeping huts in the new place.

To Shane:

There is a known bug regarding profiles. This comes from the developers:

"If you delete a profile, then add another, the new profile added can overwrite any other existing profile. To prevent, don't delete any profiles, just add new ones."

thanks pam,
one more question though. im building both the towers now but its taking forever! even when i put all workable tribe members except for 2 food colectors and 2 wood and rock collectors, its been about a day and the towers arent even 1/2 way done. i collect the dust that falls regularly but it takes almost 5 star dusts to go up one 1% and 2 moon to go up 1%......any suggestions?

Actually, the quickest way to get the towers completed is to exit the game for awhile. Construction goes much faster when the game is closed. Just be careful that you have selected enough trees. Those towers use a lot of wood and if you run completely out, your people will starve because they won't be able to cook their food.

Moondust and stardust don't really help enough on the towers to justify using them. You'll just end up depleting the dusts with not much to show for it.

Help!

I have tried to make a rock (rock+sea water+ stardust). I have dropped the potion on the gras as well as on the sand. No luck. Any ideas?

The problem isn't that. It's deleting the names. The problem is that I can't add new ones. When I try to go to a different profile thing, the game shuts down so I don't even have the chance to delete any of them if i wanted to. So no matter, what I'm stuck on a non-named profile. I can only click "start new tribe" and it's on the same save thing so I can't rename it.
