does anyone know whats happens when your husband and kids die but the mother is still alive i had that happen it was the first generation and the father and kids died but the mother is still there she is only 41

Reply

Michelle - mother alone
You should go on playing - she can get another proposal or maybe an orphan is coming along.

Only with kids you can go in the next generation, so I hope the best for you.

For the wall compound you have to watch them the entire time the work on it. As soon as your person walks away pick them up and put them back on the bucket of compound. You have to do this many many times before they complete it. Same thing with the floor. When they walk away put them back on the spot on the floor. I usually have to put them on the floor cracks 4 times before it is done. The floor is not repaired till the floor repair kit disapears.

Vickey-
Look under the table in the kids room for the remote. Set someone on the table several times and see if they try and pick it up. If the remote is under that table you can't actually see it. You just have to try and put a person on it and see if they pick it up try several times.

I wanted to tell everyone that when I'm playing the game I hear this Twinkling sound and everytime I hear this sound I look around and there is a collectable in my yard. There are two different twinking sounds and only one of them seems to indicate a collectable. I only just noticed this today but every time I hear it there is a collectable in my yard. I wanted to see if anyone else has noticed this.
VANESSA-
The red ball I'm talking about appears to have no function... read the spoiler.

You get it by clicking and dragging the mouse in the upper most left corner of the game screen. You can bounce it around and stuff. Also if you set it in the ring in the kids bedroom and then move it to the tool tray, then click in the now empty ring in the kids bedroom another ball will appear. I can't find a function for this ball and I just want to know the point of it. Thanks for your inquiry.

How do I post a picture of my game on here?

The Artist works in the office. You have to pick your person up and drop them on the desk. I don't know where the other works sorry. But it has to be either the Kitchen, Workshop, or Office. In the Workshop you need to drop them on one of the tables in there. You can't just drop them in the room you have to drop them where they can work and they aren't going to work on the floor. In the kitchen drop them on the counter to the right of the sink.

For the workshop wall, you got to keep dragging your family members to the bucket. And for the floor repairs, you have to keep dragging them there as well. Remember, you can't get the little ones to fix repairs.

Something interesting just happened. I have not seen this. I use the doctors visit fairly often. Any time one of my little people is extremely weak. I just used it on my dad and it said. "our test indicates there is no infection. Also you may need to use baby boost if you want to have any children." I put it in quotes but I may have gotten the wording a little off. I never new that it could say that. I guess he got a fertility test done.

I am in my 2nd generation and was wondering if it is possible to have a female child. My first generation couple had 6 boys and now the second generation couple just had their 3rd boy! I want a girl! Any idea why no girls?

I was getting frustrated with a couple that both wanted babies, but then they kept arguing because they couldn't agree it was time to have a baby. I repeatedly dropped one on the other, and when they began arguing, I used the scolding hand. After about 5 or 6 cycles of this, they finally tried to make a baby and were successful!

Does anybody know if it is better to send your kid off to a foreign country or not?

what is the absolute maximum age anybody has gotten for their "little guy"

Does "playing cook, office, or workshop" have any correlation between the children and their future careers?

thanks and please help!

The gender of kids is pretty random, there's no way to affect it. Just keep trying.

dcobb2 -

Sending the kid to a foreign country is a nice way to get some quick money, but the kid is then gone unless you decide to make them the next generation when the parents die.

I think the oldest I managed was 68 or 69 so far.

I sat down and observed for a week just to see, but the playing cook, office, or workshop appeared to have no correlation to what their adult careers ended up.

Jaluza -

First, if you can afford it, use the doctor's exam on the child, they may have a serious illness that needs treating. Otherwise, there is random stuff you can buy in the store like fruits and vitamins that can help boost their strength. Also make sure that they are getting meals and plenty of sleep.

Reply

You can refresh the store every hour, not just when it's frozen. That way you don't have the wait the usual four hours for the store to refresh. Just press R while in the store.

When you read previous comments, you will see, that you are not alone with your problem :).
The remote control can be hidden nearly everywhere in your house and sometimes hard to find.

When you can't find it at all, wait for the event, when a group of maids will come to clean your house. Accept it and they will find the remote and place it back.

You will need one of your adults or kids to use the shower or the sink in the kitchen or bathroom. This will reduce the water pressure.

Dear pam,

The reason your parents are having does kids might because when ever a parent has a baby the color of the hair of the baby can determen what kind of color hair will the other child have so it can be a random hair style with that same hair color

Family does not sleep
Do you have the game running, while you are not playing? If not, go to options and change it there. They will sleep, when you are doing the same ;).
The time of their day is related to your own time. So over day they only will go to bed, when they are ill/very weak.
When you let them live their lifes, while you are not around, then just make sure, you have enough food in the fridge and close the game. When it is night for them they will go to sleep.
Latest when you open the game again, they will get up!

Their energy levels will be fine as long as they take naps. Let them take naps and reward them for doing so a few times.

Naps are common and have a positive connotation in all countries but America.

If you have already taught them not to nap you will have to wait until they are exhausted and reward them for taking one a few times.

Then QUIT the game for about an hour and their energy levels will be back up soon.

Ok, guys my people are in their 40`s and I need to know when their children will take over???

IF anyone need to know how to fix the shower you pick up the person and put them by the shower and make sure that they saw that it was clogged and drag them to the laundry room to that black bucket right between the two items against the wall...

For the fire lint or burning stove (etc.) you have to show the person the fire and make sure they know about it and drag them to the sandbox and put them on top on the door handle to the shed and their status will say fixing shed door and after it says they are doing something different like watching t.v ( etc.) drag them to the welcome mat in front of the front door and it will say unlocking shed door... After that drag them to the shed on top of the fire extinguisher and then the status will be fixing the stove or fixing the dryer!!

thx!!

I found a way to earn money very quickly, because the game is real time and connected to the clock on you computer if you change the time the game runs "faster".
I set the date on my computer to the earliest possible year which was in the early 1970's I then made a family and got them to have childrenI then exited the game and changed the date to the current date. This caused everyone to age but the parents only aged to about 50ish. Doing this raised my money into the millions, I currently have about 450,000,000 dollars in the bank. It is a lot more dun when I can buy anything that I want.

Been playing this for a few days now... and it's really fun! I really didn't like Virtual Villagers, but LastayofWork did a great job with this one (now if only they could get a better character designer). Allthough it's easy to think "Sims is so much better" (undoubtedly), I have to say that even if those thoughts cross your mind, it doesn't ruin the game at all. I'm obsessed with getting 100% on games, so this really suits me!

I'm still on my first gen, and I look forward to starting a second (unless they all die... those little weaklings).

You can't adopt more than one person . When u first start they let u adopt 1 person. When you keep playing your person will get an email of proposal and you can marry the person or reject them . If you don't marry them you will keep getting proposal emails. Your person may have a baby with who ever they marry and when the parent dies one of the kids will take over.

Hope this helps, Jana730 :)
