AND then you won't have full trophies. Where's the fun playing VV4 just for solving the puzzles since it can be completed less than 120 hrs (in fast mode)?!

If your villagers will not gather the flowers after the hummingbird has visited them try dropping one on the rope, it may need to be repaired first....make sure you have cloth bolts available. Once the rope is repaired they should gather flowers to make the lei.

I have been playing vv4 for 3 days now--did I build my huts too close to flat rocks?because I am still missing 2 musoleum pcs---Do I have to start all over? I only left game on once for a long time--usually turn it to pause when I am not playing because I didn't want to miss any pcs. I have had all the lab n windflutes for 2 days--still need 2 fish scales.---do I have to restart game? ty mogli142

Hiya, Unsure if anyone noticed, but if you try to catch the crabs after the stones are cleaned up. It will give you 1. 52 in food and 2. collectibles. You still got to have someone go fish, then put the children there to get the crabs attention then have the adult grab it. The adult will put it in the food bin and within a few moments (about 30seconds to 2 minutes. Sometimes instant) the collectibles will show up along with a mushroom. Hope this helps with your game :) ~Cairo-Daiyen~!

I think I might be stuck.. I am only getting items for the
Collectibles in Science. and then it is repeats.. is this normal or do I have a glitch and have to restart the game? All I know is it is driving me up the wall! Mushrooms and Science Collectibles.... Help please!! Thank you ~Cairo-Daiyen~

I've got another tip for you: the flowers that the hummingbirds set onto( in full bloom ) are really very helpful to get extra tech points! Each flower gets you 250 points.I had about 8 children and kept dropping them onto the flower one by one and they got me around 10000 points before the flower stopped blooming.

The wind flutes used to blow at the beginning of the game. But after blowing 22 times they don't do it any more and the mist is not coming any longer either. Any tips???

About mastering parenting:

keep dropping an elderly female onto an elderly male (or vice versa, depending on who do you want to increase the parenting skills for)over and over again, don't wait for them to go indoors, and their parenting skills will be increasing without getting pregnant.

The only drawback is that you'll have to do it about 100-150 times before reaching mastery.

Reply

Lighting the fire 50 times is a crazy idea as somebody mentioned before, but you can do the same little cheating thing as you do it with mushrooms and collectibles:

Gather wood and dry grass, then pause the game and drop as many adult villagers on the fire pit as possible (not too close though, you don't want them to start embracing), unpause, and they will all light the same fire.

Like that I managed to light the fire 7 times in one shot.

I think my game might have a glitch; every time I get a child to pick up a totem item on the floor it registers it as an item for the scientists instead, and does not give anything to the lab nor does it send it to where it should be going (on the totem stands). Does anyone know how to fix this?

Reply

I have a villager who used to be an adept builder but i made her research to become an adept scientist so she could move the rock for puzzle 2. But it says now that she's an adept scientist instead and it's not working ):

Are you talking about the wind flutes? It sounds like the children are picking up duplicates of ones you already have. Duplicates go to the lab for tech points.

Here's a Screenshot of the keystone. This is the rock you use to plug the hole in the stream.

The maximum population depends on whether or not you have any completed collections. The base maximum population is 90. Each complete collection adds 5 to that number, and if you get all 4 collections complete it adds an additional 5. So base = 90. 1 collection complete = 95. 2 collections complete = 100. 3 collections complete = 105. 4 collections complete = 115.

An adult needs to be at least adept in at least 3 different fields before they can teach in the nursery. Just one mastery is not enough.

The best time to look for collectibles is when fog rolls in. When fog rolls in the wind chimes blow and make more collectibles show up. Once your mausoleum is complete and a few villagers are buried there, ghosts will show up to help you find rare collectibles.

Does anybody have a screen shot of all the collectibles? I have been hunting for the last lab piece for a while now, and I thought having an idea of what it looked like would help. Thanks.

The best thing to do is watch your farmers like a hawk, the minute the bush regenerates more berries they will be over there picking them. Keep them away from the bush for a while and the berries will regenerate.

I added all the ingredients for a grand feast... But when I drop an adult on the pot to taste it, they refuse. What am I missing?

(Ingredients: fresh water + sweet, spicy, soapy herbs... Then added food, fruit, berries, fish and mushroom)

does this require a particular level of tech?

After you've made the stew and added the food, fruit, berries, fish, and a mushroom, add food from the food bin at the end (yes again) to complete the stew.

Between the pot and the rack of soap there is a round drain looking thing. Drop an adult on this drain and they will empty the pot, allowing you to start over.

In the main menu, when you go to options and hit the pause there, you can then hit "play" and the game should still be paused.

Hey! I found a REALLY easy way to get a lot of food.

You can do this only after you finished the Moss Puzzle.

Get two kids and "distract" the crab. It's better if you put both kids on the crab at once. After you do that, get an adult and nab the crab. He/she will bring it to the food bin instead of the food bin instead. But not yet. The kids will continue to run around the crab. Even when you don't see any crabs yet. Just wait. Another crab will pop up, and will get distracted by the kids. Now grab another villager and nab that crab. WAIT, there's even more! The kids won't be finished, and there will be another crab that shows up. So grab yet another villager and nab that crab.

By this time, your kids will have stopped running. But wait a few seconds, and another crab will pop up. This time, again, put both kids on the crab. Rinse and Repeat. Each crab will give you like... I think 50 food? This is when you have Food Mastery Level 2! Super awesome.

how do i get a sewing hut i need cloth i know how to make cloth but i need a sewing hut

Reply

I'm just about done... Just tying up loose ends trying to accomplish the trophies. Main one left -- getting 100 scholars.

Which leads to my question: pretty much the only (or at least fastest) way to increase parenting skills is by telling children stories -- because population just stays at max all the time, so adults won't "go indoors" together if I drop one on the other.

BUT -- about 80% of the time, when I drop an adult on a child, instead of telling a story, they both freeze, and do nothing. This didn't happen in earlier stages.

Does anyone know why this is?

Hi Silver, it sounds like one of the people you're trying to make a baby with isn't old enough. "Telling a story" is the interaction you get when you put an adult or a child together. You need to use two adults. :)

Reply

Hey Silver, what's hapening is that you put together an adult with a child (understand by child a villager under age of 18), you can use for parenting only villagers that are 18 or older...

By the way, i'm seeing that some women that has set for parenting continue having babys either if they're older than 50, but that only happens if they make babys by their own will, 'cause if i try to put an older women with a villager non baby comes...it's funny...

Dear sa;
In my experience on this game, if you use salt water for the grand feast then the villagers will not finish the stew. Check to make sure you didnt do the same as i did. Empty the pot and start again. First with fresh water, and then add the three different herbs, then 2 helpings from the food bin, find a child to get you a mushroom, and then get three farmers to get the fruit,fish and berries. I hope this helps.

TayTay,
The keystone should be right under where the waterfall from the stream used to be. Under the eastern cliffs where the wind flutes are. Its a kind of triangle shaped stone. If you find it remember that you need a person that is BOTH an adept builder and adept scientist.
