I am playing the free trial version, and on the first try my family had triplets.
I was so surprised. She looks kinda funny, holding three babies instead of one.
I had read somewhere that you had to be farther in the game, but now I think it doesn't matter. She was the original player I picked out at the beginning.

And right after the triplets grew up, the same couple had twins. :) Haha

I play VF on my iPad, and I cannot find any option to enter my name. Nor can I find a way in the menu screen to tap on my name so that I can run multiple families. Can this be done on the iPad version? If so, I would be very grateful for a screen shot showing where I should tap. Thanks!

Virtual Families is fun.
Although, the husband, Jake, has hiccups. I can't find no medicine to help him.

Also, I really want the wife, Olivia, to have a baby but it either says, "They don't agree to have a baby" , "They're too hungry to have a baby" or even "They're not feeling well to have a baby" . That's why i need the hiccups cure.

Oh, and I also want to know how come they're not ready to have a baby, sometimes they were fed, cleaned, and felt well, but they still don't.

Someone please help me! I'm addicted to this game, thanks!

I'm now on my 16th generation of the same family. I have completed almost all the trophies. All I have left to complete is marrying someone with the same career. And curing someone who has a serious virus. I love the game and will miss it after i complete the end. I have done every upgrade and mastered every career. I've had 6 kids including triplets. I wish there was more to do. I have 87,000 dollars in the bank and want to spend it.

Reply

Haven't commented in a while so:
Casey- you should be able to buy a kit from the shop then put it next to the bucket that is next to the sandpit drop a person on it and they should carry the bucket to the wall and fix it.
Sarah- it can't be the trail version you can only have one child on it :)
Jmidge1207- wow well observed. I find coins on all the paths though and insects for me appear anywhere around the edges or close to the house. The twigs leaves and photos always appear in the places you said.
Venus- it's never happened to me but I have heard people say they can get remarried however the children from your old marriage still count towards your maximum six so if you had six children and they all died then the parent got remarried they wouldn't be able to get more money
Chirres- 1. Sorry this answer probably gets annoying but wait it will happen sometimes. Energy drinks sometimes help or perfume but they'd not definite way to have triplets.
2. I don't think you can
3. Play out side how? But generally keep picking them up and dropping them until you get the action you want them to do, as everyone you move them they will change what there doing.
4. Oh that's horrid. How did she die. I'm afraid I'm not going to be much very helpful on this question as I have never had a ghost stay around after the person dies. Is they Anyway to make sure they do?
5. Wow some weird hair colours sometimes it's just random.
To all iPad/iPod players I've has the game for a while and have never managed to find a way to get Multiple families. I'm not sure they is a way, other then that everything is the same
Nikki- yep they can
Allie- give him candy or get a house upgrade basically after that he should be fine.
Andrea - read the walkthrough.
Laura- I don't find it gets boring sell your collections and start collecting again events like earthquakes make sure theta always things to do.
Sorry for droning on with answers I think I answered all unanswered ones.x

People keep on asking how do I do this, how do i do that? READ THE WALKTHROUGH! It tels you everything there! knob to the shed is in the sandbox. Key to the knob is on the welcome mat! Fire extinguisher is in the shed! To fix sink, wrench is in the red toolbox, in workroom. drop your person on it after seeing the leak! between the iron and the closet in the laundry room is a little bucket! Something is in there to fix shower! duct tape is in store, will fix hose. Someone spouse must use water wile other one is fixing hose! Need water pressure!

Okay, I have a question. Daylight savings time just happened so my clocks all gained an hour. When I turned on VF, all three families were sick, exhausted, and the houses were a mess!

About the age 65 thing, my first person died at 64 (ugh, I know). The only thing was that his health was pretty low thanks to him being sick all the time since he was a workaholic. I didn't really do anything other than until he was about 35, I only fed him normal food. After that I only fed them organics. The fridge ALWAYS had around 2500 food in it... I don't really know what else I did that could have affected it... If you have any question on whatever I did, ask and I'll see if I remember.

i got the updated version on VF. first id like to praise my favorite family of Brunozo...got 5 kids and they arent even 30 yet! had one, had triplets, then one more. ALL BOYS! hehehe they are all black hair with glasses, except the eldest who takes more after his mom with crazy brown hair/no glasses. dad calls the kids for bed every nite, and have found him 'telling a story' or watching tv with the boys many times. also, id like to mention that in one of my other families, a little boy showed up on our doorstep to be adopted. i adopted him, and my other little boy RAN to his room and started 'HIDING his toys'!!! i was shocked! he took his 'toys' (little yellow boxes with red bows like the presents for celebrating babies) and started putting them under his bed!
im having a problem 'preparing a meal' tho.
say in my big family, one of the boys will be 'starving' so i drop the mom on the stove/fridge/counter but all she will do is 'look for snacks', tried the dad but he will only 'work on career'
my other families wont make ne food either. will they make food when they need it?

Its possible to have triplets people
It worked for me

i was on my second generation, both of the parents were COMPLETELY happy, i made them embrace eachothr and they had triplts ( altho i did also use a baby booster earlier, so try considering one, and use on both partners)
So i think the trick is you have to have both people as happy as possible.

P.s i was using the ipod app not the computer.

Hope that helps/ works

Hey! So I am on my first generation family with four kids and the parents are both about 40.

Sometimes marriage proposals take a couple years, I wouldn't worry about that. As for the store not refreshing:
1. Make sure it's fully updated (1.0.1, I think.)
2. Go to the store.
3. Tap the place where it actually says the words, "Family Store." Should work then :)

I have three different families and cannot get any of them to have a baby. They are happy, sometimes even elated, but always argue that it's not a good time to have a baby or something similar. I chose people who feel they deffinetly want kids or it would be nice to have kids... so you'd think they'd want to!

I let my first family adopt a child that showed up on their doorstep and figured maybe that's what caused them to not be able to have kids. So, I started a new family and still can't get them to have kids.

Any thoughts?

Hi guys. If this isn't already posted, as it takes awhile to check every post here, does anyone need help getting the Go-pher it trophy? All you need to do is let your child run around and play, and check what they are doing by pressing them only ONCE. When it says "Playing in the lawn" or something like that referring to the yard or lawn, get your green hand out and click on them, and thus getting you the trophy!! ;)

Krackle June 28, 2011 2:21 PM

@Newtothis Yes, buying the full game will resolve this problem, having the lite version you cannot buy anything but groceries.

@JIguest On the bottom of the screen when you are in your families house, press family, then, at the top of that page, you will see a blue button that says New Generation, click that and you will be able to pick one of your children to take over the house!

@Frustrated Fixer Put one of your people in the shower to relieve water pressure and the other on the hose. I suggest pausing the game, putting one on the shower so their action box says taking a shower, and the other on the hose so their box says fixing the hose, then unpause the game, let them finish, and you have fixed the hose!

@Sara yes, that is fine, because the way the game runs all family members will do that!
