Hi all, i've got a problem. I've finished nurserie school. the Teacher is an elder but xhen the child come after the action choosing an activity they made nothing ! (action : nothing). What is the problem ?? Tks

Can someone tell me how and when do I try and convert the red and orange heathens? I have level 3 everything and in the process of doing the lake puzzle.

January 13, 2011 8:08 PM

Hey, has anyone else had the golden child join their tribe yet? I just got a message saying that a someone from another tribe had joined the expedition, the golden child. He's and adept scientist, age 18.

Collecting all science items earns you 5+ population and having both complete collections earns you another 5

p.s.: someone got a solution for the necklace problem?

I know how to convert all the purple guys except the reserch one. i have a master resercher but the purple guy just shakes his head

How much energy do i need to make a rain storm and fill the lake?

Okay solved the necklace problem ("theres no apparent place"):
You gotta solve the 15th puzzle or maybe have to solve all totem puzzles. The 15th was the last totem I worked on and suddenly my villager was able to pick up the necklace.

Hi all, please can someone help me - how do I convert the orange masked guards? Getting really tired of the rascal. The others I have no problem with - and have managed the game quite well (with a sneak peek at the hints) - but these guards are annoying! Thanks

January 14, 2011 6:14 AM

never a dull moment. what are the 50 island events to complete the trophies.
Anyone know.

Here again. Got much further in my game, but I'm trying to pan for gold. I managed to fill the pot to 1/3, but now when I put them on the pan they say there is no gold. I have finished every puzzle except the lake, the chief, and the eye statue, and this gold thing is really driving me crazy! What do I need to do to keep getting gold?

Puzzle 6 - Dem Bones
A TIP!

You can complete puzzle 6 without removing the "Block Totem". There will be like 2-3 blue heathens that will try to block the mausoleum. Drop a villager on top of them and try to convert them. When you have spoken to them and drop your villager again then will run away and leave the area. Now drop your villagers at the mausoleum and clear the blockage :) When they come back just drop a villager on them again and repeat untill you're done :P
I completed it in 2 hours after the game started and removed the block totem like 20 hours later. It will take like 10 minutes to remove the blockage.

Back again.....
did the gold
chief has got the necklace
and has converted
still dont know how to convert the red and orange/yellow masks ???
and what about the dirty encampment ???
havent a clue whats next ???

Did anyone get the jenga achievment yet?

To Yzisme, thanks regarding the glitch - works like a charm. Way to go on that tip! I managed to hold 3 or 4 orange masked terrors with one expectant mother. Better to use them as they don't work anyway. I have managed to get FOUR master builders,and building up tech points for level three of the game.

How can I increment the energy? I finished all the puzzles and almost all thec are in 3th, but my energy is just 565, any ideas?

TO unlock puzzles 10,lake puzzles just use the power revive on the lake......
enjoyyyy

@GIGI_op
you can add 5 energy for every children you pop. other than that, i have not find other ways to get more energy. hope this helps
@val4uk
you have to have the earthquake god power, shake up the encampment a few times until all the heathens are converted

hi to all...first of all, thanks for all the help :)
second, i need help.
i've restored the mausoleum and took down the temple near it. but i can't seem to convert the last purple guy, the master builder. he never seems to be around to challenge him, he mostly hangs around the mausoleum. i've tried to push him a bit with my master builder and manage to get him to the part from where he is supposed to see me challenging him, but he still doesn't see it. so...what am i to do now?
i hope i won't have to start over, since i'm rather ahead. i thought maybe letting him cramping up the mausoleum, maybe that would get him away from it? any suggestions? thanks in advance!

just wondering how do you get the key for the relic collection.
I have tried everything. the game is beat expect for that.
thank you

Has anyone managed to light the fire with the lightning power? I'm more or less done and trying to get all the trophies but my fire won't light!

I managed to light the fire with the lightning power easy, just put the lighteninig on the spot for fire (encluding you dont have a fire) and it will light

I have converted all purple mask heathens but can't find one necklace piece. I think it is from the hydroponic farm. He dropped his mask, but not necklace piece?? Can someone help please

January 19, 2011 6:48 PM

wow i am so annoyed, i followed all the tips in this room and so nearly completed the game trophies and all, all i needed was the eagle and suddenly my babies are stuck at nursing 123 minutes, my children wont grow, i NEVER manipulated time... so angry i was enjoying my game and breeding experiments ! GRRR everything else was completed ! oh yeah... except jenga :(

January 20, 2011 8:35 AM

Okay I have finished everything. Now what? Can the heathens camp be fixed?

The purplemasked master builder heathen is gone. I cant do puzzle 9 because the heathen is not watching :P how do I get the heathen back?

January 20, 2011 4:22 PM

I try to make new babies with my de-aged womans, and now they are nursing forever. Somebody knows how to fix it? I know it's possible, because 2 of them finally drop the baby, after years nursing, but I don't know how. (Sorry for my bad english...)

OMG! I just converted the "Heathen Mommy" but she's a he! Talk about a glitch in the game!

January 20, 2011 9:02 PM

Hey in the game when you try to take the rainbow totem down how do you take the rainbow totem down these are te powers i have the bees, butterflys,sun,lighting,and the bllom one were you plany mushrooms and flowers so how to i take the rainbow totem down???????????

Woah, I converted the Heathen "Mommy", who actually turned out to be a 20-year old guy. Guess The Sims isn't the only game where males can become pregnant!

Earthquakes cause rare collectables to appear

I have completed this game in 1 day !!!
i wouldn't fink it to be a joke if i were in ur place :/
but one thing is bloody true............AM THE BEST !!! ;)

January 21, 2011 11:07 AM

anyone know what the "Sun" god power is for or what it does????

HELP!!!
I've ran out of noni berries!?!?!!
Do they grow back? or is there another supply of food?? Pleaseee help.

HELP!!!! I have reached 90 people it says thats maxed converted all blue and purple heathens and dont have enough divine energy for earthquake. What do I do?

very funny my nursing heathen was a guy didn't know guy's can give birth to a child hahaha

Hey, has anyone else had 2 sets of triplets and 2 sets of twins nursing at once? In all of the VV games, I have never even had twins before!

Wow, Ysime, I wish that I had read your comment earlier! Your trick would have been SO helpful in any part of the game, it's a shame that I'm pretty much done. :P

Well, I managed to complete all puzzles (including the extra one) in 5 days, with no villager deaths... looks like the God Powers make the game a lot easier! :P

January 24, 2011 10:24 AM

Where are the heathens coming from? I converted all of them and restored the heathen camp bu now I have a new group of heathens without having a mommie heathen!

January 24, 2011 11:08 AM

How do you get the villager to stay in place after you put the time warp on him to challenge the purple masked dude at the bottom? Every time I start the challenge and hit the villager with the time warp he runs off making it impossible to win.

HELP!
The purplemasked master builder heathen is gone. I cant do puzzle 9 because the heathen is not watching :o how do I get the heathen back?

help! my dyes are missing!!! i finished the clothing hut and the rainbow totem! but when i left the game and log in again they were gone!

I am having a problem with Puzzle 9! Whenever I use the time warp power on one of my builders and drop him/her on the left pile of supplies, I hear a clock ticking - and then the builder disappears! What am I doing wrong?!

January 25, 2011 4:33 PM

I have a 20 yr old MALE villager with a baby! Anyone else have one of these individuals?

Has anyone figured out a way to "bury the dead"? The skeletons just just lay there and finally disappear. Thanks in advance.

Oh I just got the answer!! Yayy

Please can someone tell me how to put fish in lake. I'm up to the fog of doom power. If I need another power how do I get it. Also how do I beat the builder heathen ? Thanks

You're welcome :D
Does everyone remember the little island in Virtual Villagers- The lost children? The little island kids can't get off of? I found the VV5 equivalent :D

If you haven't got it yet from all of my subtle hinting, she can't move. ;)

I have a great idea for a strategy guide. Can I write one?

[You never need to ask permission, we encourage everyone to write a walkthrough or strategy guide for the site. :) -Jay]

I have finished the game except for collectibles and trophies.

I was wondering how to level up devotion after all heathens have been converted. Also when I use Earthquake none of my buildings reset.

And I can just put it on here?

[Yes, you may post it as a comment similar to our other walkthroughs and strategy guides. -Jay]

If you look under Puzzles (above) and look under Puzzle 10, Lady of the lake it gives a detailed account of how to put fish in the lake.

I have had a female villager that has been nursing for 123 minutes for about 10 years of her life, yes that is no typo :) she ages but never has the baby Any ideas? She is probably tired of the whole thing haaaa

February 1, 2011 1:47 PM

@tjana

Use your bee godly power so they can produce more berries !

Strategy guide.

Picking People.

When picking people, it's best to have at least two children, and to have your adults young; but the thing that I've found helps the most is getting people who like Learning or Running.

Erm. To be continued. It's harder than I thought... but I can do a walk-through thought.

February 2, 2011 11:04 AM

Does anybody know of a way to get your energy capacity up quicker ? I mean how do you all get all those godly powers so fast !?

Illusen -

If a villager has some devotion already (usually learned in school as a child) just set them to devotion and they will work on it on their own. You will see them worshipping at the statue of the hand.

The earthquake will only reset buildings that are under construction when it hits, it doesn't seem to affect completed buildings.

Bluelily -

I have noticed some bugs in the nursing mothers. I had a nursing mother who nursed for 60 years. You might want to contact Last Day of Work and see if they have a fix for this bug.

Wrippedjeans -

For more capacity you need more villagers. Make babies and convert heathens, the more villagers you have the more capacity you have. To get the earthquake power you would need 80 - 90 villagers.

Liz -

That means that you converted the heathen "mommy". Usually (but not always), when you convert the heathen mommy it turns out to be a guy.

Hi -

If the heathen builder wanders away (and they usually do) all you can do is wait for them to come back to do the building contest.

Antique1944 -

That sounds like a bug in the game, you need to contact Last Day of Work and see if they have a fix.

Bunny -

Once you complete tearing down the rainbow totem the dyes disappear, you don't need them again.

Melanie -

When you drop the time-warped villager on the supplies, is the purple heathen there to witness it? If so, and your villager disappears, then this may be a bug in the game. Your best bet is to contact Last Day of Work and see if they have a fix.

Totallyconfused -

Make sure that that villager is selected in the "camera" in the lower right of the screen. Even if he/she runs off, you can click on that picture of them and you will zoom to where they are, then you can pick them up and drop them on the supplies to do the contest.

Tjana -

If you can repair the aqueduct to the farm plot (upper left of the screen, just below the hot springs pools) you can get another food source. In the meantime, if you have the fertilize power (the bee) you can put the bees on the bush and they will fertilize it, getting you a few extra berries.

Liz Johnson -

The sun power can make it stop raining, or make the fog go away.

All players -

We are compiling a spreadsheet of island events, both the ones that just happen (like the day of honoring the dead) and the ones that have choices. Feel free to post any island events you have encountered and what happened and they will get included in the spreadsheet.

Does anyone know if the chimes mean anything?? I'm concluding they don't??

Does anyone know if there's a fix for the breeding bug? I had a 77 yo nursing mother. I've tried changing from fast to slow, rebooting and making them young again. Nothing changes the timing. I have a bunch of 13 and 14 yo's nursing! I have noticed, however, that this bug seems to affect women who are made young and then have a child.

i have converted only 10 blue masks and have level 3 everything but i cannot convert anymore the light wont go out from above thier heads

Here are random events I've gotten-
(Remember, these may not be identically worded, seeing as this is from my memory)
~ There is a loud sound, and children fall out of the waterfall! "That was fun!" One yells. "Let's do it again!" Unfortunately, their village is to far away for your villagers, so the children are adopted into the tribe. (+4/5 children)

~ (Heathren name) has watched your tribe and has decided that they like what they see. They approached (your villager name) and asked if they could join. (your villager) doesn't know if they trust them or not- it didn't seem to have been enough time for learning much.(I chose yes) (+1)

~(your villager name) wakes up one morning to find that bees (or ants?) have overtaken the Noi bush! Should they shoo them away?
No/yes
(I picked no)
From watching the bees/ants, (your villager) learned a lot about farming. Unfortunately, in the process the bees ate all the noi fruit.
(+ a farming skill level)

~ your villagers wake up to find sneaky footprints around the grainery.It seems some food has been stolen!
(- random numbers, usually around 300)

Another random event-
(exact wording)

~A tame bird is found with a note tied to its leg. It bears news from another village saying that there are signs that the balance is starting to be restored to the island through the combined efforts of the other tribes. Scientific evidence follows...
Your tribe gains some tech from the document.

(+2000 or less)

Here's another I just got >.>

` (Villager name) has found a way into the five pools!
- Bathe quickly before anyone notices
- Enjoy the pools
(I chose enjoy the pools)
(Villager name) knows that the heathens might catch him, but he thinks "Hah! Who are those heathens to hog the pools?" Unfortunately, the heathens see him and he is quickly surrounded. He hides his face in fear, but it is to late. Now his face is hidden behind a mask. The heathens have added one to their number.

Aaand here's another:
(I'm sitting at home, sick, with nothing else to do)
~ Aphid Infestation!
Aphids have infested the crops and rendered much of the food unusable.

well it''s starting to annoy me...i just can't get enough energy to get the god power to revive my fish.
i also cannot make any more baby's.
i now have 33 villagers and when i put two of them in the loveshack it say's there isn't enough spacing to house more villagers..
i've build all houses..so i don''t know what to doooo :(

Where can I get dry grass for the fire pit???

Heeeere's another XP:

~ (villager name) is starting to doubt the existence of the guiding hand. He looks up, expecting a miracle.
-give him a miracle.
-don't give him a miracle.

I chose give.

You make butterflies appear above his head. He however, thinks it's a natural phenomenon. True devotion comes from within.
(nothing happens)

Im having problems with my de-aged nursing mothers aswell, they get pregnant but never "have" the baby. It is seeming to be only with the ones i used the de-age god power. Even if i use the power again on the same villager i end up with a 5 year old with a baby!!! and the circle continues.
Any suggestions on how to fix this?

February 9, 2011 10:58 AM

the chimes ring when a collectable or a mushroom appears soo listen out for them kk :) hope it helped !!

Hi!
I have a problem in the game. I already solved all the puzzles unless the 17. I have the necklace complete and when I took one villager to delivery to Chief it say the chief is not in home. I do it several times but the chief never has here. What can I do?

-Sorry, my english is bad xD

I have so far encountered one event:

One of the Heathens came to me asking for a tour. I chose to give the tour. She was impressed and gave me a tour of her own, but then she stole some of my stuff. It didn't say what.

I need some help!!!! How do you get the villagers enery bar full? The other games you made potions with flowers! Doesnt seen that is the case in this game!!! Thanks!!!

I encountered another event:

A "barrell of babies" washed up on the shore.
I got two 10 year old girls.

I have a problem.I changed the windows mode to play but now I can't play at all

I'm having troubles, my knowledge totem is guarded by 2 scary red people and 3 orange(2 work in the science lab). I use the butterflies to gather lots of kids to distract the orange people but it doesn't work, even when I use the bees on them all. After dragging ALL my people onto the totem, I find they have already fled from the guards, then my spells wear off. What can I do? Can you please direct any replies to: katenipper@gmail.com? Thanks!!!

I have this weird problem with my game. For some reason it takes a really, really, really long time to make a character into a Master Builder. I mean, I've been playing for about a day now in fast mode and I only have 2 and their both from the starter tribe. None of the other skills take that long.

i had an event that went something like this...
???(cant remember their name) wanted to try bungee jumping with a springy vine and i chose to do it...then they forgot their purpose in life and just want to bungee jump...which means all their skill left and now they don't like to work lol

I have searched and searched for this answer. I don't have a nursery school. How do you build them and how do you build extra huts? Thanks :)

on my game, i found one of my villagers in the broken adeqate and it said he was "comforting", and he was right beside the purple one that always weeps. so i just wanted to know what he was doing; was he comforting himself or the purple masked dude. kk thx. crystal.

kay so my villager was in the broken adeqate and it said he was "comforting" and the purple dude that always weeps was there too. i just wanted to know if he was comforting himself or the purple masked dude. thx. -bethany

I just realized something gross. I guess its a bug, but I had no kids in my tribe so I set all of my Villagers to parenting, then found that when the men ran out of women to smooch, they became homosexual!!
Also, has anyone found out what to do if the Knowledge Totem is guarded by 2 red masks and an orange???

In regard to the building challenge, the villager I put on time warp "disappeared" as well. In reality, he was just scurrying around at top speed elsewhere on the screen. Just pick him up and drop him back on the challenge once it resets and you will be able to solve the challenge.

Shelley and AhChi, you cannot deliver the necklace until you solve the puzzle where you return the eye to the gray and gold totem by the woods where the heathens go when it rains.

The dry land about the lake is the heathens' ruined village where they congregate as you destroy totems.

The sunshine power will get rid of rain.

You get lightning power once you build up your max energy bar. As you add to your tribe and find relics, your max energy bar increases. Once you fill it, new powers become available.

Riku, your child cannot pick up the piece of necklace by the statue b/c that is where they store the pieces they have found. Every time you convert a purple heathen, you get a necklace piece. Drop a child on it and it will take it to the statue. Once you have all four pieces of the necklace, you can assemble it.

Is there a limit to the age of the mothers? My 73-yr-old just had a baby.

A semi-permanent solution for Rascal and other Yellows!

This will only work once the lake is filled. Try dropping a child onto the lake towards the south edge, notice they don't swim, they just sort of get stuck there.

If you haven't mastered the art of "decoys" yet, here's how you do it: Drop a child near some yellows, then pick him up and slowly move him. The yellows will follow, if they lose interest, drop the child for a second then pick them back up), you can "lead" yellows anywhere on the map this way.

For this trick, you will be using a child and decoying all the yellows into the lake.

Rascal is a child, so cannot swim, get her stuck first by decoying her around the South West edge of the water (you'll see some rocks, then a sand bar, then more rocks - this second more southern set of rocks is where she'll get stuck - basically on top of the flat rock), when she reaches this spot, move your little decoy out into the water about a quarter inch away and drop them. The decoy and Rascal should stay there (decoy in water, Rascal at the edge). If they don't, pick the decoy back up and re-position until they do.

Pick up another child and use them to decoy the rest of the yellows into the lake. Once you get them to swim to the original decoy, then just swoop away (don't drop a second child here) and go back for more until all the yellows are stuck around the first decoy. Don't drop any more villagers in this area.

If you close the game, you will have to re-do this because everyone moves when the game re-opens.

Ok, I've just started playing the game, and I'm trying to dismantle the hunger totem... And I can't! I have distracted the yellow guards, but the red ones won't budge. I've used the bees power more than 10 times, because I first thought the problem was with the exact position I should click on the bush... But no matter where I click, the red guards just run around near the totem, and when I try to get my villagers to work on the totem, they either get scared by the heathens and run away, or they get attacked by the stupid bees! I admit, I'M FRUSTRATED! I don't know what to do anymore...
Oh, yeah, and there are two red guards in front of the totem, and in your screenshot up there, there's only one guard, and it's right next to the bush...

Hah! He deserved it! Rascal was running around when all the children started playing tag. When he played, everyone left and he ran into the corner 'a bit lonely'. HAHAHAHAH!!!

So, I have 91 villagers, all except four relics and four science items, and have 722 max energy. I have also fully researched everything except Science and solved all puzzles except for 14 (currently in round three of building).
I know I need 800 to get an earthquake, but how do I increase my energy when all the purple heathens are converted, the chief is converted and all except four blue heathens are converted. By my calculations, converting the four heathens would get me 20 more energy and finding the other relics/science items would get me 24. So, 722+44 is only 766. I need 34 more to get to 800.

February 12, 2011 9:25 AM

why builders are pretty late to be masters??
cuz the other skills is about a quarter to full already a master... and also how to get more max energy?

P.S sorry for my bad eng(maybe) XD

It said to use a master builder to get the heathen builder but i used a trainee and won :D

Never mind,I found the solution myself... And just so everyone knows, there is another, much easier way to get rid of all the guards around the hunger totem

Simply use the lightning power on the guards, regardless of whether you choose to lure the yellow guards away and trap them by clicking 'M' or just luring them close to the red guards, and then use the lightning on them all. Then u simply bring your villagers to the totem and dismantle it. The red guards might return to their posts later on, but they'll leave it as soon as they 'realise' the totem is gone...

February 12, 2011 3:01 PM

Mess Safely with the clock!

Hi, there is a safe way to mess with the clock.
1) Before changing the clock be sure to have enough food to last as long as you will fast forward.
2) Do not go over the crop-time, meaning, if you have 12 minutes until crops are available, fast forward up to 10 minutes and leave the 2 reamining minutes for the game to complete during normal playing mode.
3) Do not skip over an hour change. If you want to fast-forward past an hour-cjange, first go to 58 or 59 minutes (Ex: 18:59)and after the computer changes the full hour,(Ex:19:00) then fast forward the rest of the needed time. Keep your change in minutes.
4)Be sure to Stop the game before putting your clock back to normal time.
Select the Pause option. Also, before pausing the game and putting your clock back, make sure you have noni on the bush and crops on the land.

I messed with the game clock in all virtual villagers games. I had a lot of problems before I came up with these rules.

Happy playing to everyone : )

I was having problems with puzzle six and decided to restart, then I realized

that if you do the puzzle at the beginning, then there are only blue masks in the area and there's no so much debris. It's a lot easier, because then all you have to do to keep the masked people from reburying is drop a person on them.

February 12, 2011 9:47 PM

i got another question... why is the heathen master scientist is so slow for the light above his/her head to disappear?

Hi, I must be blind or something--I can NOT find the dry grass for my fire! Any help? Thanks!

ok so i tried to drop a adept scientist on the blackboards and that didnt work...how do i clear the board..or do i just wait it out

February 13, 2011 1:32 AM

JIGuest -

The dried grass is near the hospital and the knowing totem
