Are twins & triplets always identical? I play the iPod Touch version, and the two parents had triplets. Three identical triplets. All boys. This is the first generation too, and their 2nd lot of children. (They did have a girl already.)

How long are the women on Virtual Families nursing? And how long does it take for people to age a year?

Reply

Hanhula,
I don't THINK they are always identical.
I don't now.

Kate,
The women are nursing for 4 hours real time, I don't know how long that is in Virtual Families world. I don't know how long it takes for them to age a year. When I turn it off at night and come back in the morning they are usually aged 2-3 years.

Sorry, Jana730

I LOVE THIS GAME! It is one of my favorite. I always play it. I'm basically addicted!!! Actually, when I get my new iTunes card tonight, Im going to purchase the full version. People may be talking about it crashing and not saving, but everything has run smoothly for me. I also know a lot about fixing stuff around the house. If you need help with that, just ask. Well, I'm going to stop typing now. I'll end with this: A great game that I would most definitely recommend.

Reply

To answer some questions;;

Riley- You don't actually adopt children like in real life. Kids will sometimes come to you door and knock. Whenever that happens, an alert will appear on the screen saying something along the lines of, "A lost child has come to your house. Would you like to adopt it?" From that point, you would say yes or no.

Savannah- From what I have heard, the oldest known person to have have a child in the game is 50.

Hope this has helped!!!

So, I Have a quick issue. I have a small family of 4. Geometry (Mom), Doc (Dad), Greco (Oldest Son), & Nero (Youngest Son). Everyone else in the family is awake, and very happy, except for Greco. It says he is exhausted but he won't stay asleep! He falls asleep and two mintues later he's getting a drink, or having a giggling party wth his brother. I have a picture, but Im not quite sure how to add it in. I guess Im just going to keep trying to put him to bed...

Peter 2nd generation married Stella. She is a beginner chewing gum designer. Peter has 2 problems with her (or at least I do) First she will NOT get on with her career. When I sit her at the pc she just browses the web. Secondly, although she told Peter she definitely wants children she keeps refusing and argues about it.
Where is her station of work if not at the the pc? I have tried the workshop too but she just walks out. I am beginning to think Peter made a mistake in marrying her.

Any suggestions?

Reply

Charlie- Not that I know of, but sometimes they do become I'll by themselves. But it's at random. Like today, when I got on this morning, my whiole family was sick. If you really want them seriously I'll, probably don't give them medicine and don't let them eat/sleep/etc..

JaciG- You should try and put Stella in the kitchen. Gum is more of a food. My first generation guy was a BBQ Sauce Designer, and that's where he worked. And if they argue about children, just keep dropping them on each other. They will eventually have a baby. Sometimes, if they just had one they won't want to have another right away, or if they tryed and failed they won't try for awhile either. If they just had a baby and say no, try in again within 30 minutes- 1 day. If they failed, try again 15 minutes- 30 minutes later. GOOD LUCK!!

Hi, I'm playin the iPod touch version. I'm on my 15th generation and still haven't had triplets or won the lottery. How can I help to make this happen???
Also I've almost completed all the collections. The only ones I need are about 5 or 6 of the insects. Is there a reason these aren't appearing in the garden yet??
Please help as I've been playing this for months and really want to complete it.

Oh and I follow some instructions on this site to have multiple families from the menu but it said play or start over. Play takes you to current game and obviously I want to complete it before I start over. Is it possible to play multiple games on iPod??

Triplets and the lottery draw are random, there's no way to force them to happen.

Insects like to come out in the rain, so buy bottles of the rain weather in the store and make it rain. Once the rain starts, start looking for insects.

As for the Ipod version, I think you can only have one family at a time.

Reply

Phantom -

When the next generation takes over, all of the kids are suddenly adults, so you can pick whichever one you want to take over. You cannot, however, influence their careers.

Jen -

Some of the weeds can be very hard to spot. Try using the weed killer if it shows up in the store, also try buying the maid service if it shows up in a random e-mail. The maid service cleans the inside of the house, even hidden trash. Also, are you cleaning the cobwebs that show up in the bathroom?

But the fire is out, and Buro (the 8 year old) is still breathing, haha.

And to be more specific, Buror is the father who put out the fire. He is different from Buro, the youngest child.

Dear pam,

To get double collectibles: pick up a kid (or adult), then pause the game. Drop the person on the collectible, then go find another kid or adult and pick them up. Bring them over to where the first is on the collectible. Hit the space bar to unpause and drop the person immediately on the collectible. If you get the timing right, both of the characters will come up with the same collectible, thus you get a "double".

The mom will nurse twins the same amount of time as a single child.

Jason -

Making a latte and throwing away the fish are random behaviors they do on their own, you just have to watch carefully. Usually they will only make the latte in the morning.

Lynn -

As far as I know there is no limit to the number of generations you can have. As long as they have kids, the family just keeps going.

Have you gotten the doorknob to the shed yet? They won't be able to get the key until the doorknob is fixed.

For a basket maker, try the workshop as her workplace.

If your couple dies without children, then yes you will start over. However, they may still be able to adopt even if they can't have children anymore due to age.

The bugs like to come out in the rain, so make sure to search when it rains. Also, in the store, there is sometimes a potion that can make it rain, so use that as often as you can.

They need to sleep for longer than 20 minutes. Put them to bed, then once they go to sleep get out of the game for a couple of hours. Also, there are energy drinks you can buy in the store on occasion that will boost their energy.

2 qeustions-

2)What's wrong with my general store? I have V. fam lite for itouch (and v. fam, but this is lite. Q 1 is talking about the regualer V. fam) and nothing is showing up. The groceries are, but no home improvements, varied items, and the baby boost, vancomycin, pennicillen, and antihistamine aren't showing up either. my family has 300,000 something dollars, but i can't buy anything because it won't show up.

The orphan will either automatically grow up, or take the household as a child. I think he'll grow up, but either way, he should be able to be the next generation. As long as you have food, he should be able to snack until he's 14!

In the PC version, you can force the store to refresh by hitting the "r" key on your keyboard, not sure if it works on the I-phone version. You might want to contact the vendor where you bought the game or Last Day at Work to see if there is a separate fix for the I-phone version.

I think the I-phone version can only have one family going.

When you put the groceries down on the table, all the adults should come running and put the groceries away, you don't need to do anything to make this happen. What might have happened is this: when you put down the groceries you started grabbing your people, disrupting them from the task. Try buying another bag of groceries and putting it on the table. See if the people then come and put the groceries away.

The imported candy doesn't do anything harmful.
