I'm very stuck on the pulpy vines. I've tried puting all my my adults on but they just get confused. Also, I would like to know how to get another hut. I've read a lot of people talking about it but how?

Help!!! I've finished all the puzzles except puzzle 16. I don't see a purple hummingbird anywhere. What exactly does it look like?? My tree is nearly recovered, I've got my lei repaired with cloth, but no hummingbird. I've tried putting a child on every flower, but nothing happened.

For those of you who have a "Pot" that need to be emptied so you can try a new "stew".
I accedently found out how to empty the pot...right next to the pot is a circle that looks like a sewer cover (a cirlce with bars in it). Just drop an adult on it and it will say "empting the pot"

I have completed all the puzzles except for the grand feast.
I get water, boil it - ad the herbs collected by children,
Then add all the ingredients
Food Bin
Fish
Tree Fruit
Berries
and then drop an adult on the pot and it they so no.
Do the foods have to be added in a specific order to trigger the grand feast?

The easiest way to solve puzzle 14 (worship) is when the stew is complete immediately pause the game and drag everyone to the pot of stew. Once all of your villagers are on the stew, (at bottom it should say eating some stew) unpause and sit back and watch as the take the stew to the tree. At least that's how i did it, and it worked for me. I think Virtual Villagers 4 Tree of Life is the easiest of the Virtual Villagers games so far. It was the easiest for me anyway lol. I beat it before I beat the other 3 lol.
(I was playing all 4 at the same time lol, switching from one game to the next when I got bored) Best of the 4 games too lol

i really dont know how to cook the fruit but it only works with my master farmer so i guess thats it
and when you gather wind flute heads it says "collecting an item for the scientists" is because its a repeat wind flute ( one you already collected before) so its already converted to one hundred tech points and works well with the double drop technique. :)

What can you do when you have level two food cause it's not doing anything or letting me get any other foods ?????

Please help

Reply

Ok: some solutions i have found to problems people are having:
1.You need Construction level 2 to get the clothing hut and you need the clothing hut before you can cut the pulpy vines
2. To finish any stew you need food from the food bin
3. For the grand feast, you need 2 foods from the food bin along with berries, fruit from the tree (you need the roasting pit for that) fish from the nets (you need to repair the piers first) a mushroom collected by a child, and of course the three different herbs (If you do not put in 2 foods from the bin it will say unfinished!
4. The reason it will say "bringing to the scientists" when you pick up a collectable or flute head is because you have already collected that item before and no longer need it for your collections... because some items are more common than others you will see the same items appear over and over again
5. Older women cannot have children regardless of how young the man is... older women in the game as in life hit menopause
6. there is no way to continue the game if you population is all one gender, all elderly people, all the women are elderly, or all of your children are one gender and your adults can no longer have children... in all of these situations your village is doomed to die... there is nothing that can be done

To everyone: in order to have an adult teach in the nursery they must be a master parent. A scholar is a master of everything, so there for they can teach, and you get a trophy for it. I know everything there is to know about this game so just reply to this with your questions.

Thank you for your post
I have adults on with a master skill and I dropped them onto the nursery. Every now and then I check on the kids to see if they are learning anything, but there is no progress.
Am I doing something wrong?
Does applying a preference for the child affect his/her training?

Reply

japal1998:

you must have an adult with at least 3 master skills in order so children can be teached.
Also children has to be dropped often into the nursery and they will only show their skills once they reach the age so they can start working.
Hope this helps :)

but the chances of getting another person to appear is low.

Hi Shawna,

We do check the pages...but I don't know the answer to your question... I'll see if I can find out for you, though.

Reply

I've looked up a few possible reasons more huts cannot be built; do any of these apply to you? -

  • Have you upgraded your construction technology so you can build more and build faster?

  • (What and how much can be built depends on your technology level.)

  • Do you have an unsolved puzzle?

  • (Completion of puzzles is needed to increase your level and thus build more/do more.)

  • Do you have an incomplete collection?

  • (For each completed collection, you are allowed a higher population/more huts.)

  • Do you know if one of your hut constructions is being blocked?

  • (New huts won't be built until those that have been started are finished.)

Reply

Shawna -

You need construction level 3 to get the foundations for the third hut.

I have completed all tech levels and have all huts etc. but still need one mausoleum piece. It does not want to show up for some reason. is there a trick to getting rare pieces to show up? Also need a few more fish scales, but those aren't showing up either. completed flutes and lab collections though.

Anyone have any tips? putting my game on pause now when I leave as the only way they become scholars is if you make them tell stories over and over to become master parents it seems everything else they can become masters at just by setting them on the task they need to master in.

Reply

Steff -

Collecting is best when the fog rolls in, the fog triggers the wind flutes and when they play more collectibles show up. The collectibles are random, so there's no way to "make" a certain one to show up. As for the fish scales, they show up more when the tidal pool is low, watch the water levels in the pool, they change.

I also have another one........ on the tech screen , the tree, I have four shaded parts . Is that when the humming bird comes or no?

Reply

Lily -

Is your water still boiling when you add everything? If the water has cooled, the stew will still be unfinished.

The hummingbirds should be showing up once you have four shaded bars on the tree.

Do you have to do the herbs first for the grand feast? Also the child I sent to go get the mushroom put it in the granary!????

Reply

RaNdOm -

Yes, you have to collect the herbs first. You have to collect the herbs before you do any stew, the kids will bring them to the table in the lab.

Sometimes the kid will go to the granary rather than the stew, it happens. The best thing to do is try to do the feast when it is raining, so there are plenty of mushrooms coming up. Just keep dropping a kid on a mushroom.

Check out the walkthrough above, it has step by step instructions on how to make cloth.

BreaBrea -

Above the pot, between the pot and the rack where the soap is made, is something that looks like a drain. It is, in fact, a drain. Drop an adult on the drain and they will empty out the pot.

Lily -

When doing this particular stew, more is best. So when you start, have more than one person collecting each ingredient. At the end, drop someone on the food bin one more time as well. This helps in case one of your workers takes the offering to the food bin rather than to the pot.

Bob -

Collectibles come up at random, all you can do is wait and look.

RaNdOm -

You only need one or the other. The objective is to keep the kids away from the tree so they don't distract the adult who is trying to heal it. If you drop someone who can teach in the nursery, all the kids will run there. If you drop an adept parent on a kid, all the kids will run there for storytime. Or, drop a kid on a kid and start a jumping contest. Basically you are just trying to keep the kids out of the way.

Look over by the cliff overlooking the water, there are two bowls, one at the base of the cliff, one at the top. To put water in the pot you need to drop an adult on one of these bowls, for fresh water the one at the top of the cliff (near the river), for salt water the one at the base of the cliff (near the ocean).

bovineninja -

Getting the stream to flow is a two part puzzle. Part 1 is clearing the debris, part 2 is plugging the hole where the water is disappearing. Look at the base of the cliff where the waterfall used to fall, there is a chevron-shaped stone there. You need a villager who is at least adept skill level in both building and science to move that stone and they can plug the hole so the stream flows properly.

niccie3225 -

This is a time-based puzzle, and you have to get them to quickly start meditating after the bath, otherwise the first set of sparkles wears off and you have to start again.

Reply

Leviticus -

To catch a crab you need two children and one adult. Once your villagers start fishing, you will notice crabs appearing on the beach, but they run very fast. When a crab appears drop a child on it, the child will start to distract the crab. Immediately grab a second child and drop it on the crab as well. Once both kids are distracting the crab, it will slow down and you can drop an adult on it.

As for the stones, you need to be more specific. Which stones?
