You can get extra max energy by converting heathens, getting a higher population og finding new relics

I've converted all the red masks and all but one of the orange masks, my people are able to raom the heathens village but the remaining orange mask never visits its city and just keep causing trouble. I had an event where the orange one said he wanted to join the city adn seemed sincere so I said OK and he trashed my lab, please help - does anyone know how to get rid of or convert him??????
Thanks in hope

How do I raise devotion after all the blue masks are converted? If I set someone on the statue, they just polish it.

It's normal for none of the other purple masked people to leave masks except for the master farmer.

The chief also leaves one when you convert him by giving him the necklace

I was just wondering what's the oldest villager people have had nursing? I've played all 5 games and haven't been able to have a villager above 50 nursing before.

So, I'm kind of stuck.
I've finished all of the puzzles, converted all of the blue masks, everything like that. The only things I haven't done are convert the orange and red mask heathens, and finished the collections. Which leads to my problem.
I'm maxed out with population (until I finish those collections) and my capacity is currently at 787. The only thing to do is collect relics...
And NONE are popping up.
I've been on the game for about half an hour now, and NOTHING has showed up. No mushrooms or collectibles or anything. Believe me, I've scrolled around the whole map, too. Is this a bug, or just me being unlucky?

Those of you having trouble getting 10 jacks of all trades (as I have), don't give up yet.
I just got a barrel of babies, 3 blue mask heathens, 2 girls and a boy. I checked devotion on 3 villagers had them talk to the babies and then put them on the statue (this only works with adults). As the babies lights stop blinking I did the same with 3 other villagers. After doing this 4 times I now have 12 villagers with at least a start on devotion.
Good luck all.

It seems EVERYTHING in this game is random.

To the person that asked how old can a villager get, Again I am guessing RANDOM, I have had more than a few in their 90s. Also women having babies in their 50s and 60s.

It is easy to lure the orange guards away. Just drop a person next to one of them. Then pick him up when you are sure they are following and dangle him above their heads and lead them away. It works very well

You can increase parenting and get Master parents when your females turn 50 without having kids. Just keep dropping the woman on a man until she's a master and then do it the other way around.

Also, you can separate the orange and red heathens from the blue masked ones with bees. You can then pause the game and drop people on each blue mask that's not too near a red mask and convert them.

There are faster way to break Totems.

But it is random...

I got this message popup thing, Saying a Salt Wind that smell the whole map. Every runs and hide.

This is the advantage i found breaking 2 - 3 totems that can be break without advancing Techs for the time being.

Since it takes a long time for them to leave their post and reach a safe area to hide and takes 2x longer when they get out of hiding and back to their post.

This is the time you can break 3 totem in 1 go.

by using 3 adult on each totem that is, Rainbow , Hungry and Knowledge.

It took me 3 attempts to beat the Heathen Builder. What finally worked for me was to wait till the Heathen Builder was sitting by his project, choose my Master Builder, use the Time Warp on him and then move him to challenge the Heathen Builder. If I tried it at the building contest site, my Master Builder would disappear and lose.

You do not need to finish tearing down the blockking totem before clearing the moseoleum. You can just drop your villargers onto the blue masks that already have a light above their heads. They will run away. It kinda takes some work but it is another way to do puzzle 6 :)

you need to get an energy bar level of 100, when you do you will get lightning

you zap the hearthans around the totem with the lightning and they will run away, then use your oeople to dismantle it.

oh, and by the way, you get more energy by converting herthans, haveing babies, or collecting relecs

I have played it several times and had to download a different version because of an error. After downloading this version, I had a new account which was failing so I started a new one. On the new one, I started trying to convince the Master Scientist Heathren and I was able to do the chalkboard thingy 1. After that, the chalkboard wouldn't clear the writing and I couldn't write on the board the 2nd time. I waited 1 hour, 4 hours, 1 day and 2 days but it still wouldn't clear itself. How do I fix that?

To convert the Master Farmer, you have to have a Master Scientist. Put the scientist on the broken pipe beside the garden the farmer is sitting on. Then put builders (Might have to use Master Builders) on the same broken pipe. Keep both the Scientist and the Builder(s) on the pipe and the pipe will be fixed. The Master Farmer will then join you.

is the remaining orange mask child-like? If he's running like one, you could attract him into the broken village with butterflies and then use eathquake on him. If he's an adult, lure him step by step with a child or other villager (kind of hard)and do the same. I hope this was useful.

I have been playing virtual villagers 5 : new believers for about a week now and i have finished every puzzle exept for the dried up lake one.

You probably lost energy because some villagers died. You gain 5 more energy everytime you give birth to another villager or when you convert a heathan.

Reply

@missja
Try the following:
1. Look around each heathans station for a piece of the necklace.
2. Make sure you get someone to assembly all 4 pieces.
3. Fully unblock the mausoleum and get 3 villagers to use the pan in the corner to pan for gold dust.
4. Then get a villager to take the gold pot by the river over to the fire.
5. After it is melted, take the golden ball, from the fire, to the totem near the front of the forest.
6. Get someone to bring the assebled necklace to the chief in the forst.
Refer to puzzles 15 & 16 in the puzzles section for more help.

@Gabrielle: Check the walkhrough above for Puzzle 13, that's the one you're asking about.

@Melanie: By having a villager teach the children in the nursery, the children will earn experience in some of the skills so that when they're adults and ready to work, it won't take as long to learn.

@Ari: maybe all your villagers died? That can happen if they run out of food. My best recommendation is to not allow the game to run overnight or for periods over which you are unsure when you'll be able to play again. Always pause the game before you do, that way things like this won't happen.

Reply

Hmm, thanks Jay for the suggestion. There's still plenty of food left and everything else is the same as it was before--the only difference is that all the villagers (or at least the believers) mysteriously disappeared. And the first time I played the game I didn't play it for like a month and there were still some villagers left even though there was no more food left. Maybe it's a glitch in the game, or some really nasty random event in the game that seemingly only I have been subjected to so far. I've contacted the VV5 developers to ask them about this. I hate to have to start all over again, but if I do, I'll remember to pause it this time when I'm not playing.

An easy way to get your builders up to master builder is to send whichever one you want to make a builder and send it on the mausoleum, then get one of your followers to annoy the crap out of the heathens trying to rebuild it. THEN when it gets close to 0% let the heathens go and re-barricade it again
