Thanks!

michy you need level three of fertilty and then after you get that done then as a woman is nursing a baby drag her to the lagoon and it will say something about her baby reaches for the lagoon waters and then a golden child is born it doesn't get older than five. after hes born he should move the boulder at somepoint. i hope that was helpful

How do I get them to carve the rock?

Cheryl,
The flower problem that you are talking about...

if you have the golden child, you need to drag him to the weird plant to the north near the cactus (the one that always says it looks like it could bare fruit)

That is the one with the flower and stars.

The path kinda threw me too. I had a pop up that said one of my villagers had found a book and should he read it or give it to the researchers. I wasn't paying attention and said read it and he followed a secret path and disappeared with the book. I have now finished that game and am doing another one... there is no way to get pop-ups to come up on a new game is there?

Does everyone get the same looking kids that washed up on shore? I got one that looks like an alien with a white face, gray hair and big eyes. Man does he father ugly children, LOL.

ok people if you wait a wile after you complet everything a book will wash up on the beach and when it says "dont show others the book" or"show the others the book" CLICK SHOW OTHERS becuse the person that saw the book will go to the other part of the island and leave the other people

Reply

how long do you have to wait for the book to show up?
and where do you guys see this path at?

Reply

k, your very welcome! i know about the game because i finished the game! BTW, remember you also need the idol built before you can have the golden child! :) the book can show up @ anytime, or maybe never for you. (i've had it come up, like, 5 times.) actually, you don't see the path, it just says there is a path, or maybe you can find one? ;)

obie, you need the temple built and level 3 in spirituality. hahahahaha! i got the "alien" child too!

Katy Anna Worthington, new games have pop-ups too.

sorry it took me so long before i answered all of your questions!

I bought the game having been hooked on Fish Tycoon (no pun intended) over the summer. I really enjoy it and it even makes me sad when the islanders die :( but now I have everything tech points can buy and unlocked all 16 puzzles and it took less than a week. Is there anything left to do in the game? Another side of the island or anything? Just watching them breed and die isnt that much fun :(

Nothing happened after the treasure was dug up except an alert saying it was found. Did I miss something?

Reply

Impossble_Dream, you are done the game. after you find the treasure, there is nothing really else to do but stare at it. :)

Reply

i have completed all the tech stuff but how do i get the golden child i can't figure out how to get it and ive completed all the technology stuff.

Reply

I asked this on another board but I will ask here; In vv2 could you make it rain. In vv1 the villagers do a rain dance but no rain.

Reply

hi i cant figure out how to move the boulder can someone help i have all my tech things and still cant do it what am i doing wrong??????? HELP ME PLEASE

BY THE WAY AWSOME GAME !!!!!!!!!!!

Reply

chickie, you also need the lagoon unblocked and the idol built. just drag a nursing mother into the lagoon and the golden child will be born.

obie, i read your other post in gamezebo! i also hear thunder but it never rains! good idea!

lisa, you need to have the golden child born (read the begining of this post). he will move the boulder for you when he is ready.

Reply

I solved all the puzzles. But I am not sure the game is over.Cant villagers make a boat with the debries they cleaned from the beach?

Reply

I am so glad that Village 2 will be coming out before Christmas. How much before Christmas? It's almost Thanksgiving and I am definitely ready and looking forward to it.

Reply

kaya, yeah, you're done. making a boat would be a great idea!

doc, i'm not sure exacly when but it's 70% done! (last time i heard) OK.......let's start doing the math.......lol ;)

Reply

Someone...70% huh? Let's do like I do when I need to get a doctor up to speed in the game. I just keep throwing them on the cactus. Maybe we need to keep throwing those who are working on Village 2 on a computer. Think that will speed things up?

Reply

doc, hahahahahaha! i hope it speeds them up! throwing them onto a computer.....that won't hurt at all.....:-D
BTW, have you seen the screenshot of vv2 yet? here it is if you want to see it: http://www.gamezebo.com/2006/11/virtual_villagers_a_developers.html

I put virtual villagers on pasues how do you get it off?

Reply

I finished all but the treasure. I never had to get medicine #3. The villagers are digging for the treasure but the golden child keeps calling for a party. That makes it take longer. Can I let the game run to watch the new kids grow up? I mean will the game keep going?

By the way, I never got the whale or the book.

Hi everyone, just been reading all the above posts. LOL at Docs comment about throwing people on computers! and various others made me giggle :-) ive just finished the game aswell and was searching the web to see if there was any more to it. Dissappointed theres not because like some others I completed it in about a week. glad VV2 is coming out though. I havent had any books, whales or secret paths either. Although I did have several child prodigys! Im spawning a tribe of geniouses! lol! Anyway, cheers for clearing up my suspicion that i've reached the end of the game.

Reply

obie, yeah, you don't really need level 3 in medicine to solve any puzzles. i'm not sure if i understand your question but the game still goes on even if you leave it run. is that what you're asking? just wait, you'll get the whale and book soon! :)

mary, the drum is good for getting the golden child distracted so he won't throw any more parties.....as much. ;)

How do you stop the gloden chid from making partIEs

Reply

hey i really like this game. just have a few suggestions for the t.b.a. chapter 2 of this game.

- why do all the little events, like finding a chest on the beach have to happen while your off the computer?
-make the women pregnant for like an hour before the kid just appears in their arms
-get better graphics
-put more details about people like their height and stuff
-kids should be able to start working when they're like 10 or 12 not 14

Reply

ttfe, you can't stop him from making parties. i really wish you could though! lol. ;)

Reply

thank someone

Reply

no prob! i love to help people! :)

Reply

what drum?

Reply

I've been wondering about the drum also. I haven't seen it. I would like to see the events when they happen also. For example, when a crate washes up on shore, I would like to see it arrive. A pop-up is good to allow us to make the decision what we want to do. But if we make the decision to open the crate I would like to see the villagers take out whatever is in the crate or if it has people in it, they can jump out. If there is a mean monkey getting into stuff, I would like to see the little critter's antics. I know this might be too late for Virtual Villager II and I definitely do not want to delay the release date. However, it might be something to consider for Virtual Villager III (there's nothing like a hint, is there?).

Reply

ttfe and doc, the drum is right beside the school. (on the right side) have you not seen it? :-o just click on it and you'll see!!!!! ;)

Reply

OH NO! just yesterday, i had 90 villagers but when i came back today, i only had 28! NNNOOO!!!

Reply

someone...I had seen what turned out to be a drum, but I thought it was a big log or stump. It never dawned on me to question what a stump was doing there...duh...I like that it calls the children to school. Now it makes sense. What happened to all your people? Did disease hit the island and you hadn't thrown enough people on the computers...oh I'm sorry, on the cactus to get them up to speed as doctors?

yula hether November 18, 2006 12:05 PM

hey peeps, ive been trying to get my builders to get the treasure chest, but they just cant find it! i hav every thing researched, and im using a master builder. i need to find the exact location of the treasure chest. please peepz! help!!! :(

Reply

doc, hahahaha! you always find a way to brighten up my day. :) anyway, i am almost sure they were all healthy when i last checked them. i think they just died from old age. (but still, 50 people dieing from old age???)but i checked again today and it's now up to 40 villagers. you thought the drum was a stump....so smart. lol. ;-)
BTW, how old was your oldest villager? (just curious) mine was 101.

yula hether, drag the master builder left of the temple, close to the ocean. hope you find it!

Reply

someone...Wow 101. Have you done anything special to care for them so they will live to be that old? My oldest was 86. I don't understand. I have tried to take care of my senior population. If they want to exercise, they exercise. If they want to rest, I let them rest. If they cough I throw a doctor on them for healing and BAM...we have a baby on the way. Hey, do you think those guys are just faking a cough? Hmmm maybe I need to reconsider how I am trying to care for my senior population.

Reply

Hey someone...how did you get so many people all about the same age? Was there a time when a lot of them died about the same time, consequently you had a lot of babies? Losing that many villagers doesn't make sense. Do you think they were all elderly? Some of the pop ups talk indicate that there is a pox that has made the children ill, although I never really noticed that changing my child and adolescent population.

Reply

Virtual Villagers is such a good game.I'm glad to say even after my hour trial I now get 5 minutes each time I go on Virtual Villagers. I find it hard not to get attached to your villagers. I only started playing yesterday and I've already got my 2 favourite villagers. A male and a female. They shall be sorely missed when they die but that is a long way off. By the way do the mushrooms that grow by the rare rose have red caps and are worth more food than the rest or is that just me? If you have any hints on the game don't hesitate to tell me. This is such sn addictive game. I can't leave it a lone.

Reply

I am curious! What does your golden child look like? Do all the golden childs look alike? Mine is bald Is yours? Does it depend on who the father is?

Reply

doc, i was surprised i got a villager to be 101 too! i didn't do anything special. also, i never let them rest or anything like that. (yeah, i'm a slave driver. lol.) maybe you were trying to heal the wrong person so instead, you got a baby! haha, i treat my seniors like teens....work, work, work! ;)
well, there was one time when i lost about 20 villagers so i made every woman in the village nursing a baby. but still, 70 villagers??!!! :-/ i didn't get a pop-up though. everytime the pop-up says a sickness spread through my village, i always make sure i cure all of them. oh well.............

Dark Aura, yes, red mushrooms are more food. i barly get them though. :)

obie, yeah, mine's bald too! what's his name? my golden chils is named kenan. what does your golden child dislike or like? mine dislikes work. (great, the child who is supposed to bring good stuff to my village, hates work. arg!)

Reply

I like it that we can re-name our villagers. There are times I give them names of people that I know that I wish I didn't know/ It doesn't take long in this game before they, shall we say, leave...

Reply

I could really use some help, I've finished all the puzzles but cant figure out whats missing, Can someone tell me how to get to the second part of the island.. My villagers are running around making babies when someone dies, relaxing alot and in other words doing little to nothing, How do I move on, I read of a other site about a book but have yet to find it, any help would be really helpful, thanks in advance.

Reply

I don't remember my Golden child's original name. As soon as I got him I renamed him so the old name is gone.

My golden child replenishes the berries, crops and food all the time. I don't know if that is what you mean by work. Mine likes to party a lot too.I haven't found anything he dislikes.

He is great at healing any one who isn't feeling well. I just drag him to the sick person and he heals them.

By the way my villagers die in their late 60's.

Reply

Kryslynn, once you've finished all the puzzles there is nothing left to do. You might want to ensure that you still have a doctor. The villagers still get sick. You will also continue to have pop-ups. You can also pick mushrooms. There will be an upgrade coming out before Christmas. I think we are all looking forward to that. If you read the other posted notes there are some postings about the upgrade. It sounds like it is really going to be great.

Reply

doc, i never rename my villagers. i like seeing all their funny, original names. :)

obie, by work, i mean in his details, it says he dislikes work. your villagers die when their around 60?! have you bought level 3 in medicine yet? i'm sure they'll start dieing older soon. :)

Reply

someone...I also like to give them nicknames. It's funny how you grow to care for these little villagers. When I first started playing there was one little male villager who had red pants on and he seemed to strutt around especially when he was with the ladies. I named him Fancy Pants. There is also a Spike, Silver,and Chrome Dome. For the most part, they are endearing names. However, those who remind me of others in my life who are not so endearing, I name them and it gives me free reign to take them to the ocean and make them tread water for a long, long, long time. That in itself is a way to relieve stress :-)

Reply

My golden child dislikes crab meat.LOL
I finally got medicine 3 so I will see if my villagers live longer.
I keep letting my game play and I keep adding children. I want to see what combinations I can get.

Reply

doc, hahaha! nice names! love your discription of your villagers!!! :-D

obie, finlly, your villagers will probably live to 101 too! combinations of what? children? cool! :)

Reply

Yes, children. I mate a blonde girl with a bald guy to see what happens,Or the alien looking guy with a blonde.I am getting some weird looking ones.A lot of repeats though. Right now I have so many kids it looks like a play ground. I am up to 66 villagers. About half kids.

Reply

hey guys i solve all the puzzles, i wonder i been inside the cave and nothing happend! is mean NO END?

Reply

obie, i tried that too. i mated this one guy with girls who were triplets. all three of the children look different! i think the game just randomly chooses a face, no matter who the parents are. :)

katkarla, yeah, your done! :)

Reply

I never got any triplets in my game. So far I only got two sets of twins and that was before the golden child none since.

Now I am up to 71 villagers. I'm trying for 90. I don't want them all the same age so I have to wait for some to grow up before I make new ones. LOL, I am really just passing time waiting for VV2.

Reply

obie, once you get level 3 in fertility, you can have triplets!!! you'll get 90 soon!!!!

Reply

You are right! I just got my first set of triplets!!
I put two blonde people together so I hope they are blonde kids. I will let you know, LOL.
I have level 3 in everything.

Reply

omg i just had a 56 year old woman that waz nursing twins & she waz @ 0min & she died of old age & so did da twins

Reply

how do u cure children? i put the healer on them but nothing works

Reply

obie, good to know!! can't wait to see if the child is blonde! ;)

kc, oh, that's too bad. i hate seeing twins dissaper. just keep on dragging the healer on the child. he/she should end up healed.......soon. lol. ;)

Reply

kc, i had the same problem but it worked eventually you just have to keep trying

Reply

YAY! i got my population back up to 84! almost there to 90!!! i got ALL of my women nursing a baby. i also have a ton of kids running around. (that means i'll soon have a ton of dead villagers again.........:-p)

Reply

The triplets are not blonde!!!!They have brown hair.

kc, That happened to me a couple times. Just as the mother was done nursing and I was waiting to see the child she died and took the baby with her. I got upset but I said to myself "it's just a game nothing I can do"

Did anyone else get a villager who stands around, all the time "waiting for someone". They won't work. I have one.

Reply

obie, not blonde?! too bad......:( anyway, your villagers will 'wait for someone" if another villager is going to tell them a joke or complaining. cool eh? :)

Since on the official website it seems to be a lot of trouble to post a simple message i would like to write here a few of my personal thoughts about this game. The only reason why i feel i should is that the main idea of the game seemed pretty new and interesting to me (the game evolves in real-time). BUT i was very dissapointed by a problem that i've had with many of the recent games. What is their porpouse? What makes me, as a person that gives money for entertainment, feel satisfied after playing the game?? It is a known psihological fact that each of our acts (in a game) must be repaid somehow. A game must be based on a complete and well-written story, otherwise it will seem chaotic. The ending must be clear but still make one want to play again. The other recent games might have a little excuse. They try to create greater and greater graphics and they tend to forget about the rest.
But I could make a comparison between Virtual Villagers and some of the games form the late 80's. Let's take Prince Of Persia (1 or 2). Poor graphics (but good ones for those years) -like VV, buuut a great story!! Great ending! One felt satisfied after finishing it. It had continuity.
Back to Virtual Villagers... does it have an ending? or a core? it has a beginnig all right, a wonderful one, but that seems to be it. So what was the purpose for most of the milestones? Why did i find a treasure, or open the cave? I was given no reward. Also the script does not seem to be coherent. It starts as a real scenario and you end up with a 'golden child' that resembles to Jesus Christ (walks on water...). Quite an imagination.....but without an actual real substance.

Now please don't think that i'm trying to be disregardful towards the game. I've enjoyed it for what i've mentioned at the beginning. But I think these things must be said because they are about most of the recent games.
Sorry for such a long post and thanks for listening.

Reply

bogdana b...All I can say is I simply enjoy this game and I am looking forward to the release of Virtual Villagers II. I work long hours and I am tired when I get home. I enjoy coming home and looking to see what's going on. Even though I have finished all the puzzles, it is relaxing for me to watch villagers and even laugh at some of their antics. I personally do not need a well planned out story line, I just enjoy it for what it is. There are some things that I hope will be different in VVII and I have posted those things, however, I have enjoyed this one so much, that I look forward to the upgrade.

Reply

bogdana b, like your questions! i agree with you! :)

Reply

doc and bogdana b, hhhhhhmmmmmm......after what doc said, i might change my opinion. yes, that's true, you don't exactly need a story line but, with some games, it's better to have one. i think in vv, you really don't exactly need one. it could have one but it doesn't need one. i kinda agree with both of you! :)

Reply

I have another request for Virtual Villagers II. On the statistics I would like to actually see how many villagers have been buried. I realize that the 50 is the number of tombstones, but we could pretend they are simply burying them very very deep. ;-)

Reply

I'm puzzled. I was looking at my statistics and I got a pop-up saying that one of the villagers just gave birth to a golden child. I already have a golden child. When I looked in the village I still only have one child that looks like Little Chrome Dome. Any idea what's going on?

Reply

doc, i have a pretty good idea of what happened. when you had the statistics page open, the puzzles page is behind it right? well, you probably clicked on the "golden child" puzzle box, so it says you got the golden child. even if you have the statistics page open over the puzzle page, you can still interact with the puzzles page. i hope you get what i mean. :) i'll explain it again if you don't. :)
also, about the tombstones, on my statistics page, it says i have 50 villagers buried (which is the max), but the ranks say i'm only 100 or somthing. same with the population. i got 91 villagers but on the ranks, i'm only 999. some people must have gotton more than me! but how???????????? :/

Reply

hey! i found out the high score for the population! i went to ldw.com and found that someone had a population of 96! wow!

Reply

I went to that ldw.com to look around. I found a thread with a lot of screen caps of the game. It looks like the golden child looks the same in everyones game.

I can't beleive you have so many dead villagers. I only have 9 dead with a population of 79.

Reply

someone...thanks for explaining about Little Chrome Dome. I understand about the statistics, but I would just like to see how many have died. It gives gives the rank, but I would just like to see the number. I can go in and figure it out by looking at the number of births verus my current population...I'm just lazy. How would a population of 96 be possible??????

Reply

obie, yeah, all the golden childs are the same looking. well, i guess your just lucky to have so little people die! somtimes, i have so many people dead that there are actually shadows under the skeletons. (you know if you have a lot of villagers all bunched together, there is a shadow under them?)

doc, yeah, i want to see how many villagers have died too. (i bet it would 1000!) ;)
i don't know how they could have gotton 96 villagers. even if you birth triplets when youhave a population of 89, you'll only get a population of 92. hhhmmm.......:/ so unfair! :)

Hi Everyone! I really enjoy the posts and the helpful info. I too had solved all the puzzles and was curious if I had just missed something. I found this link off the vv website within the forums and it is great. May be a spoiler for some though.

Reply

Christina Russell, hahahaha! the page you lead us to was so funny!

At first I was happy that I reached the maximum population, but now I want to have a golden child but all my villagers are either toddlers or young adults. Is there any way to kill someone so that ovra (my overly enthusiastic mother) will actually be able to come out of the hut with a kid?

Reply
Christina Russell November 25, 2006 3:38 AM

Thanks Someone,
I was cracking up at it. It was hilarious. I also discovered that you can change the characters clothes. However once you go through the options you cant back up and are stuck with black pants and a white shirt for the guys and the green dress for the girls. However if you look at the discussions on that forum they explain how to modify you file components and change the colors on anything you wish. Gload you got a laugh out of it. I will never look at my people the same.

sania williams November 25, 2006 2:39 PM

is there anything to do after you finish all of the puzzle or is the game finished then.

Reply

I was watching one of my male villagers. He walked slowly out to the cactus and stayed out there a little while. Then he turned around and started walking very fast to THE hut. He met up with one lady, kissed her, and the message said villager has already mastered this skill. He turned around and kissed another one and the same message appeared again. After visiting the cactus, I think my villager is working on getting his doctorate in parenting. ;-)

Reply

pippo, you can't kill one vilager without ending up killing your whole village. just wait, maybe someone will end up sick, then, just don't heal him/her.

Christina Russell, yeah, i never change the clothes. i rather have them wear dirty clothes than all be wearing green dresses. ;) i'm going to just be safe and not mess with my file components. not exactly a computer-whiz. ;) BTW, if you don't mind, if you find anything else worth sharing with us, i'd love it if you did!!!!
hhhmmm....maybe in vv2, we should be able to know what the villagers think.......i'm gonna TRY to look @ my people the same way. lol. ;)

well..thanks SOMEONE ..i ll would love too see an end tho! btw so far i played 2663 hours and in the statistic my rank is 46% u think is right? shall i just uninstall the game that now is nothing left to do? what u guys reckon?

One of my villagers, named Kade, found a vile on the beach when he was six. He could drink it or leave it and I had him drink it. The window said 'he felt strange, he didn't feel like himself'. Then I pushed okay and figured he might be sick. But he wasn't and nothing else ever happened. Does anyone know anything about this?

hint-if you want to make alot of babies fast set one of your men on 'breeding'. My Kobin got three quarters of my women with child in about fifteen minutes after I had level two fertility and the 'fish of fertility'. It didn't matter if the women were set on 'breeding' or not.

Reply

sania williams, yes, you're done!

doc, interesting story! your posts always make me laugh! :-D

katkarla, i would like to see an end too! i guess your rank is right. i would choose not to uninstall the game. you could keep on trying to reach the high scores!

Krista, i gave gotton that too. i don't think anything really changed for the villager. maybe they lost a really small amount of skill, but the pop-up should have said that they lost some skill. i dunno, i usually just forget about it.
also, thanx for the hint! it helps! :)

I laughed so loud, I have a villager who dislikes dancing. When the Golden Child has a party that villager goes away from it. I couldn't figure out at first what he was doing.

I have 90 villagers now and my elderly people are over 75. Before they were dying at late 60's. Waiting for VV2.

someone...any idea when VVII will be coming out. I know you said it would be before Christmas but I keep looking on another website and it has said that they are 70% complete for a long. There seems to be no progress. I need to avoid the Christmas shopping rush so I can buy myself (oh...I mean my friend) the game as a present.
