JIGuest:

For the clothing hut, you get the foundation when you get level 2 science, not level 2 construction. You get a second REGULAR hut when you get level 2 construction, just to clear things up. And as for your kids being grown, sometimes villagers will have babies by themselves. However, if all of them are sixty and up, maybe you need to start a new game? I know it sounds helpless, but sometimes villagers who are skilled in parenting may decide to have babies on their own, and this works no matter what the age. Hopes this clarifies things.

Sincerely,
Arbor

Hey, I'm trying to get a 'pure of mind' villager to purify the tree, but even though I've kept people away from her while she's meditating she keeps getting up and going to do other stuff while still 'sparkling'. How can I get her to finish meditating?

is there any way that I can save my village if I have a tribe of 5 with 4 villagers 55 and one of them is a girl? the other one is 10 and is a boy. Is there a way?

If you look near the blackberry bush you can see a tree. When I drag a villager over it says maybe this is hiding something. But when I drop a villager on it they are confused and say the rocks aren't hot yet. What does that mean?

So one of my villager accounts had 105 people and them they started dying off due to old age. I wanted to get the population down to 10 or so so i waited. While I waited, i let one of my old villagers get a child. Apparently she had twins! It was a good thing too because i waited too long and everyone except for the twins died of! XD So then i thought my best account was going to die off but then a barrel of children came in and I got 3 new villagers; 2 boys and 1 girl! I was soooooooooo relieved... and now I've got 16 villagers. It's started all over again! ;DDDDDD

To save time, when I want two villagers to have a baby, I put one on top of the other and then before letting them get to the love hut, I pull the male villager away, and then the female. Repeat until you pull her away and she is carrying one. You save loads of time as long as tou pull away the GUY first!

I have a quick question sorry if its been asked and answered.

I have max population at only 36 peeps. Admittedly two moms are carrying triplets, and one is carrying 1. I dunno where the max comes in at, and only 36 I need more, I'm gonna have a huge gap between babies and workers.

Can you only have so many babies in "development" at one time?

I have 3 huts.. (including the love shack)Plus School, and hospital.. Lvl 3 science learning and medicine.. level 2 in the rest.. Any help would be good. Thanks.

When you purchase level 2 science the foundation for the clothing hut appears. Just put it where you want it, then drop builders on it and they will build it.

Selina -

Just keep trying, and make sure to keep the kids away.

xxSweetboy9123xx -

Unless one of those women is the rare one who can have children over the age of 50, then probably not. The only other thing that could save the tribe is the "barrel of babies" scenario, and island event that brings more kids to your village.

To get the villagers to cut the pulpy vines, you have to have the clothing hut built, you have to have the sharp tools made, and you need to drop them in the right place. Do you have the clothing hut and sharp tools?

Are your villagers under 50 (at least the women)? If so, you just have to keep trying. Also, do you have enough huts to support a larger population?

For the Grande Feast, if the pot stops boiling before you get the last one or two ingerdients in, it will say a cold un-finished stew is in the pot. You dont have to start over at that point, just heat another rock. Also, i find it works to pause the game (space bar) as soon as the pot has the herbs in it and then place everyone doing what they need to do. Press play and everything will happen at the same time!
Oh and 2 plates of food is neccisary for making the stew, not one.

If you follow the hummingbird either after you've finished the braids or before you've repaired one, drop everyone onto the flower it chooses, they will take a flower to the lab and you'll get hundreds of tech points per flower.

I am trying to make the grand feast, but every time I make the stew my villagers are taking the fish to the food bin.

Am I doing something wrong?

I am boiling fresh water, adding one soapy, one sweet and one spicy plant. Then I add blackberries, a mushroom, food from the bin and fruit from the tree. The villagers add them with no problem. When I try to retrieve a fish though they just take it to the bin. Is there some sort of special place I have to get the fish from?

Or, is there something else I need? (level 3 food?)

This is really frustrating! Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

I just started this and I just want to post a spoiler about choosing your tribe.

It seems to be better if you pick the regular three adults, one little kid [about 2-11], and a kid that is 13. So you will have one Isola year of two kids collecting mushrooms and collectibles, and the next year they could start working when you first start the game.

It can take a few seconds after the hummingbird leaves before the flower is in bloom. Keep dropping kids on it, eventually they will start taking the blooms to the braid. Presumably you have the braid repaired and ready to receive the flowers?

Even after the puzzles are all solved the game keeps going indefinitely. You can keep your tribe going, train people, finish the collections, collect trophies, etc. As long as they are fed and keep breeding, the tribe will go on.

You will get the nursery school achievement when you have someone teach at the school. In order to be smart enough to teach, they have to be at least adept in at least 3 different subjects. Esteemed elders work very well for this function if you have any.

What you have there is what I tend to call a "slowpoke", a child who does not like to run. They are not necessarily sick, they just don't like running. They will keep up that slow pace for their entire lives, but they won't die of it.

A person in need of help -

Unfortunately, most of the women in the game will no longer have babies after age 50. You can keep trying, she might be one of the rare exceptions. There are also a couple of random island events that can add people or children to your tribe, like the "barrel of babies" event. Hopefully, one of these will work.

girlygirl123 -

The more people you have working in the lab, the more tech points you will accumulate. The more talented in science they are, the more you will accumulate (a master scientist will earn more than an adept, an adept will earn more than a trainee). Also, pick up collectibles ruthlessly. Each duplicate collectible will get you tech points. Common collectibles are worth 100 tech points, uncommon 250, and rare worth a whopping 1,500. Do you know the double collect trick with the kids? When a collectible appears, find two kids quickly. Pick up the first, pause the game, then drop the kid on the collectible. Pick up the second kid, hover him/her right next to the first kid (not right on top), hit the space bar to unpause and drop the second kid. If you get the timing right both kids will pick up the collectible. This is crucial for building tech points, especially in the beginning. It also works on mushrooms to build up food.

If you put some soap in the pool they will clean themselfs, and that way they will stay in the pool longer.

Just keep trying, maybe it will take a while to clean themselfs, you also have to wait untill they come out themself, so don't pull them away out of the pool while they are cleaning themselfs.

I dont know if this was mentioned yet or not, but heres a fun trick for earning tech points and food. When a collectable appears that you have already gotten pause the game and grab a child and drop them near the item so it says "collecting item for scientists" then grab another child and take them to the item, quickly unpause and drop them on the item, both will collect the same item. This trick also works with mushrooms and is a great way to stock food if your low or going for awards
