I'm stuck with puzzle 2 The Stream. In the meantime I've finished puzzle 3 and 4, but I have no clue why puzzle 2 isn't working!

I have cleared the stream and the water is actually flowing around the big tree, but it's dry by the blackberry bush. What am I doing wrong?

I don't know if my last comment has been posted, but I didn't saw it, so my bad if I accidently double-post this.

My problem is puzzle 2, the Stream. I'm stuck and I don't know why! I've cleared the stream and the water is flowing around the big tree, but not by the blackberry bush or so! Am I doing anything wrong, and if I am.. what is it?

Thanks for your help but it haven't worked yet so I'm asking for help again. I've tried it with my 4 adult villagers, but 3 of them are saying ''This job requires calculations'' and the other one is saying ''It is too heavy''. Do I need an adult with a special specific like Adept Farmer or so?

Just put some firewood on the place where you started the first fire and also gather some dry grass. It's just the same as how you started the first fire. (:

A villager with both construction and research skills is needed to move the keystone.

The effect of the Scholar teaching at the school is a long term one. Keep having your Scholar teach, you will notice that as the kids hit 14 they are already trainee in their fields.

There are a couple of ways to get tech points faster. (1) collect ruthlessly. Each collectible that is already in the collection will gain you tech points. (2) Hummingbird flowers. If hummingbirds are showing up and pollinating flowers, having kids pick the flowers will gain you extra tech points.

To move the stone you need someone who is both an adept scientist and an adept builder both. Someone who is strong enough to move the stone (builder) and smart enough to do the calculations (scientist).

The fruit is too hard to eat, it needs something done to it first. You need to solve the firepit puzzle before you can harvest the fruit. Until the firepit puzzle is solved, you can't use the fruit for the grand feast.

Myth Busted?

It's been said that fish scales only appear at low tide. Well, I just had a ghost appear to show me a fish scale at high tide. Unfortunately, it was one that I had already collected. Still this has me wondering...could it be that the tidal pool is just the stingiest area in the game and that tidal cycles are irrelevant?

You don't need construction level 2 for puzzles 8 and 9, but you would need it for 10, since you need construction level 2 to repair the fishing nets, and you can't do puzzle 10 without the fishing nets having been repaired.

Ghosts will only appear when you have 2 things: first, you need to have completed the mausoleum collection. Second, you need to have buried at least one villager.

To make stew: First, you need to fill the pot with water. Use the bowls at the top of the cliff to bring fresh water to the pot. Then, get an adult to take a stone to the fire (the pile of stones is just to the left of the bridge to the lab). While you are waiting for the stone to heat, have three children collect three herbs (see the walkthrough above for all the stew recipes). When the herbs are collected and the stone is red hot, drop an adult on the stone to bring it to the lab. Once the water is boiling, drop an adult on the table where the herbs are and they will add them to the pot. When that is done drop an adult on the food bin to bring food to finish the stew. When the water disappears from the pot, the stew is finished.

Look for fish scales at low tide. Yes, if a ghost is pointing one out, you can find one at high tide, but the rest of the time you'll find them at low tide.

Jessica -

Send another stone to the fire before you drop an adult on the red hot stone to take to the pit.

It sounds like one of your stones is cooling off before you can get the cover on. Make sure all the stones are still hot before you drop someone on the banana tree.

If you want to clear the debris, drop LOTS of people on the place where it's all clogged up with junk, and over time, it'll clear. BUT that's not the end of it. There's a chevron(boomerang, v shape??) shaped rock down where the waterfall used to be. Pick it up and they'll insert it and BAM you're done with Puzzle 2. =)

I believe food from the food bin needs to go in last to make the stew.

The timing for the fire pit is tricky. Remember to have a villager taking a new stone to the fire before you have one pick up the red hot one, that way you are getting the stones to the pit faster.

Finding the right spot to meditate can be tricky, keep hovering them until they "see" the spot to meditate. Also, make sure that they have no interruptions.

Notice that when the villager has the gunk on them, the butterflies will hover over them. Having the villager rub the gunk onto the tree will restore the butterflies to the tree, making it healthier.

Hey all, question about puzzle 16...

- i've got 1 lei down, with two to go, and the second one is giving me a bit of a problem. I'm pretty sure that I've got more than 20 flowers on the stupid thing and whenever i drop a villager on it they claim it needs, lo and behold, more flowers.

Having read the walkthrough above I'm pretty sure this is a technical thing, and i really don't want to contact the developers or be a nuisance or anything like that. Can anyone help??

Sonja -

You'll just have to wait until the fire goes out.

Yana -

After you clear the debris, it does continue to pile up. Just remember to assign a builder to it every now and then. It can be annoying in the early section of the game, but later it is very handy for training builders after all the big building projects are done.

Sasha -

The way the leis work is this: when the sixth child to bring a flower adds the flower, they then automatically pick up the lei and take it to the tree. Dropping an adult on the lei won't do anything. If the kids still won't take the lei after 6 flowers have been added, you may have a glitch.

Crab catching requires two children and one adult. You also have to have repaired the fishing nets and have farmers bringing in fish. Once the fish start coming in, crabs will appear on the beach near the cliffs, but they are really quick and hard to catch. Grab a child and hover him/her over the beach and wait for a crab to appear. The minute a crab shows up, drop the child on the crab and the child will start dancing around the crab. Then grab a second child and drop him/her on the crab as well. With two kids distracting the crab, it will slow down enough that you can drop an adult on it to catch it.

The problem with the hard fruit is that it is very labor intensive and doesn't produce a lot of food points. What is happening is that your villagers are consuming food faster than you can bring it in. Buying level 2 food technology will help a bit as it will make the fruit worth more food points. In the meantime, make sure you ruthlessly collect mushrooms with your children, especially the red mushrooms, which are worth a lot of food points.
