Are there any virtual families cheats/hints to get money?

Response to KYLIE

now tht you have the tape on the hose. have another family member use one of the sinks, this way the water is running and now you can fix the hose to water your plants. ;)

My Portal is depressed and I can't get her mood up. She keeps going to run away, but never does. This has happened with 4 other people that I had too delete and I really don't want to happen this time. I'v tried everything and when I use the praising glove, she tells me to stop nagging! Help, anybody? And the other thing is that I can't find someone who defiantly wants kids. All the marriage requests say, not really or no way. I'm completely stuck and I need to start a family...... FAST!

your person will get better in time just dont use the red hand or salty candy AT ALL and dont praise her more than 2 times for one thing for a while. be nice and keep her food levels around 500

it doesnt matter if they dont want kids, there just a little less likely to be sucsesful but not by much so you can really marry who you want

This was really helpful. I read somewhere, I don't know if it was this site or another, that you can only get twins after getting into the second generation, but I got Triplets on the very first try, with my very first greneration. I think it is just a luck of the draw thing completely.

The red ball is an easter egg hidden in the game, you can get it by clicking and dragging a particular area in the back yard. Once you have the ball you can bounce it around the house.

You can make them clean cobwebs by dropping them on one (they tend to show up in the bathroom on the side of the sink). You can also have them pick up garbage or socks. If there is dirt on the floor (dark patches), you can drop them directly on the dirt to clean it up.

Cutie Pie You have to get the sheds doorknob first, its in the sandbox and then your people will automatically go put it on the shed, once the doorknobs on the shed, drop one of your people on the welcome mat at the front door of the house, they will find a key then go unlock the shed, and about the oven fire i have no idea im trying to figure that out myself

There's a knob for the shed in the sandbox, and I think the key is under the front mat. You need to drop an adult on these items to open the shed.

how do you get your families energy up? they are always tired lol

Reply

B -

Your family needs sleep. The game keeps the same time as you do, i.e. day and night in the game is the same as it is for you. The best way to let them rest is once they go to sleep at night stop playing the game. If you stay in the game they will keep waking up and they won't get the rest they need.

You can also give them energy by feeding them, letting them rest (like in the hammock), and giving them an energy drink (which is occasionally available in the store).

i don't think you can do much about the sore throat, but you aren't missing much in the full version. About the kid who doesn't want to go to college, i would get him to study, it might help. If not, well you have an extra pair of hands at the house. Hope this helps. :)

Please explain in more detail what you are doing to upgrade the room. What are you buying? Where are you buying it?

The mom holds the baby until they are two, that can take several hours depending upon what speed you are playing the game. Eventually she will drop the baby though.

There is a bug in some of the early versions of the game where the store won't refresh its inventory. Go into the store, then press the "R" key, it should set the store to refresh.

Refreshing Store - I've played both the Android and "try before you buy" versions of the game. On both I was able to refresh the varied items in the store by clicking either the title at the top of the store page, or the "Varied Items" title. I now have the full PC version, and I find refresh doesn't work the same. I can hit the "R" key (after a purchase) and ALL varied items will refresh. Otherwise you just have to wait 4 hours!!!! Does anyone know a way to do the full refresh whenever I want to? Huge difference in game play with this option missing.

FRUSTRATED!!! I really do love this game, I have it on my computer and on my tablet. What I am so frustrated about is getting any kind of help with it.

Please Answer!! My oldest child saphillia who went to college keeps sending me emails about how we used to always collect and she misses that and that how she latley had some wierd dream about the house. Does this mean anything??

Reply

Hanna: Periodically you will receive email from family members who are no longer actively apart of the game. Once a child goes to college, you won't see them again unless you choose that child to take over the house once a parent has passed away. So to answer your question, it doesn't mean anything. Just a friendly note from child to parent.

If a family member is blue, it means they are a little sad, so you need to do things to cheer them up. Give them a dvd to watch or some candy (can be bought in the store), praise them for doing something, or drop them on the exercise equipment (if you have it) or in the pool (ditto). Buying house upgrades (like the large screen TV or the pool) will cheer them up. They will eventually cheer up if you keep at it.

For folks who are weak, make sure they eat, you can give them special fruit from the store or an energy drink to pep them up. Otherwise make sure they get plenty of rest. If you have the hammock drop them in there and let them nap.

couple questions:
1.how do i get it to rain?. i used the rain in a bottle and it did not work.
2.why cant i have more than one family at a time?.it does not give me an option..i have the version that had to be paid for and its on my phone..

1. To use the bottled rain simply give it to one of your little people and they will take it outside, pour it on the lawn, and make rain.

2. The phone version usually only allows one game to run at a time, unlike the PC or Mac version.

So I haven't read to see if anyone has mentioned this yet but if not or Just in case, for those of you who have been sitting and waiting for the varied items to change in the family store, open the store then click at the top where it reads: FAMILY STORE. The varied items will change at random and you can click on it as Many times as you'd like :) also once you've completed fixing the wall and the floors, the paint and the floor stain no longer show up. That's the same with the waterproof tape and as for me it seems to be the same with the sanitary wipe. Hope this helps :)

I've been playing this game for a little over a year now, and for the first time, my adoptee remarried, twice, after his spouse died. Unfortunately, he was with the first wife for 40 years (they had no children), and didn't remarry until he was 60 and wife #2, 62. The second wife died two years later, and he remarried immediately, but again to an older woman,age 63. Naturally they could not have children, but I was hoping an abandoned child would show up on the door step. Never happened and my game ended after seven generations, total upgrades, and over $1,000,000. in the bank!

I had too much time on my hands, so I put together this list of the 15 household upgrades and how the little people interact with them. These are not the workspace upgrades, just the house ones. 70 trophies and counting!

Household Upgrades

Lots of interaction:

  • Bathroom upgrade: The cheapest and the one they seem to like to most. Once you upgrade they are constantly using the towel warmer and the scales.

  • Pinball machine: They love this thing. Everyone plays it.

  • Flat Screen TV: Well duh! They already liked watching TV.

  • Radio: Fun to catch them rocking out to the tunes.

  • Paintings: Much to my surprise they are often straightening the paintings or admiring the magic fish painting in the kitchen.

  • Fish Tank: Feeding the fish, watching the fish, bothering the fish.

  • Birdhouse: They seem to like feeding the birds and calling the birds.

Forced interaction:

  • Treadmill: This one surprised me. They'll walk on it if you put them on, otherwise they ignore it.

  • Patio Furniture: Again, they never seem to spontaneously use this, only if you drop them on it.

  • Pool: Ditto with the patio furniture. This bugs me, I go to all the expense of buying them the pool the least they could do is enjoy it without me having to throw them in.

  • Barbecue grill: They'll use it if you drop them on it, and once in a blue moon an event will happen and it is barbecue day. Again, though, what's the use of buying it if they don't use it?

No Interaction:

  • Air purifier, Box of tools, Sheets and pillows. Sure, they seem happy to get them, and the tools apparently make the repairs last longer, but otherwise they don't seem to do much.
