wgirl i found the treasure chest using a master builder it was more on the side of the temple facing the crops out a little ways try around there not between the food and temple

I have a stupid question, I can't seem to get any of my villagers past adept. I'm sure it just takes time but i'm worried about my builders, i dont have any more foundations for huts. Or does watering the fild count for building points? Please i'm so confused.

Reply

karen, no such thing as a stupid question! :)
watering the field doesn't help. just drop a villager on the already built huts and they will start to fix them. this is a VERY slow process. but they do increase in skill.

is at 100% yet? he he im so impatient lol

I take it that VV only registers 50 villager deaths? Am I correct because I know more than 50 have died but my counter still only says 50??

Reply

k, it's still 98% done, but they siad it's coming out in mid-feb if the testing goes smoothly. :)
have you seen the screenshots yet? they are awesome! vv2 has collectables and the kids look like the parents and they can make stew and they have more movement (i mean like: "lonley, making stew, playing tag" and improved graphics! aaahhh! just go check it out for yourself if you haven't yet! :D

Golden child.....drop pregnant women into the magic pond!
Strange straight rocks you build a temple with.....

Reply

donna, yes, only 50 make it to the details page. :)

Guineapiglover, you need level 3 in fertility, the lagoon unblocked, a nursing mother and the idol built. just drop the mom in the lagoon and viola!
the rocks are for a temple. you need level 3 in construction.

Hi - We just started playing Virtual Villager yesterday. We have 7 new villagers that have been born... but 6 are male! How will the population continue to grow in the future? How do I get baby girls?

Thx!

wow those graphics are awesome can't wait.

KuriousKat, there is no way to make a specific gender. you'll just have to have luck on your side! if you do ever end up with an all male/female tribe, you can wait for a crate to wash up on shore (hopefully it has babies in it!)

Hi; I am still around. I just finished the game for the second time. This time I did all the techs before I made a Golden Child. He is to annoying.I got the population up to the 90 mark real fast. I did the easy game, it's to easy.

how do you make them heal and make them healthy??

Reply

motorerica, the villager has to be sick before you can heal him/her. just drop any villager on him/her. once they have a little skill, they will heal sick villagers by themselves.

in vv2, you'll be able to change their clothes! well, that is AFTER you solve the clothes puzzles. ;)

tanisha, i'm probably too late, but the only thing you can do is put all your villagers on the research table to get enough tech points to buy level 2 in farming. you need level 3 in farming to fish.

What does the Black Pearl actually mean? I got one in the bwgining of the game and it said that my villagers didn't have to woory about food. But I'm noticing that the bin is empty and the food count is at zero. How can I tell if it's a true source if it isn't showing anything? Is is a glitch?

Also i dont seem to be able to find it anywhere, do i have to buy this one as well, or can i use the same key (i know this is unlikly but i just dont think VV! was worth $20 and dont want to pay the same again eventho i wish to continue the story) Thanks again.

Chris,

The individual must be sick, not weakened, for this to work. If they are simply weakened, they turnon the Barry White and open a bottle of Chablis if they are opposite sex.

Also, make sure your villager has some healing points already. Maybe they could study some herbs first...

A Complete Walkthrough for all 16 puzzles

  • Puzzle 1 - Get a builder to clean the well. This is the village water supply. Get a villager with building skill, drag them to the well and let them fix it.

  • Puzzle 2 - Build a new hut. Population is maxed out at 7 until you build a new hut. A villager trained in building is required to build new huts.

  • Puzzle 3 - Clean up the beach debris. You need to clean up the debris so the villagers can fish. Drag a villager to the debris and it will start cleaning.

  • Puzzle 4 - Starting a village school. You need a master scientist. Drag them to the long building north of the reasearch table to start a school.

  • Puzzle 5 - Remove the blockage of the creek in the northwest corner of the village. Villagers need level 2 in construction to work on this. Drag a villager to the rock pile blocking the water flow from the creek. When the blockage is cleared, water will flow to the lagoon. This puzzle is the key to solving three more puzzles.

  • Puzzle 6 - You need to complete puzzle #5 first and have a villager with level 3 harvesting. Take a master farmer to the lagoon and they will start hunting fish. This may take awhile.

  • Puzzle 7 - Discover the graveyard (requires Level 2 of Spirituality). When a villagers dies, drag an adult villager to the northeast corner of the island. The villagers will provide a proper burial the pile of bones in village center. After this first burial, villagers will automatically have burial ceremonies for any deceased villager.

  • Puzzle 8 - Discover the medicinal properties of 4 plants. One plant is the cactus near the boulder, one plant is near the lagoon, two are on the east side of the island. Drag a villager to each plant until all four are mastered.

  • Puzzle 9 - You need to complete puzzle #5 first. Drag a villager to the field on the east side of the island (where the dead flowers are). They will water the field with water from the lagoon. Make sure to use a villager with building skill so that the watering continues until the flowers bloom.

  • Puzzle 10 - Solve puzzle #14 first. Wait for the butterflies to follow the golden child, then drag the golden child to the strange plant north of the berry bush where the butterflies will pollinate the plant.

  • Puzzle 11 - Restore the temple at the ruins (requires Level 3 of Construction). Drag a villager to the ruins in the southeast of the island and they will begin restoring the ruins.

  • Puzzle 12 - Requires puzzle #11 complete and Level 3 Spirituality. Drag a builder to the shiny rock on the west side of the village and they will chisel the rock to create an idol.

  • Puzzle 13 - the birth of the golden child (requires Level 3 of Fertility) . This requires puzzle #5, puzzle #12. Drag a nursing mom to the lagoon.

  • Puzzle 14 - Requires puzzle #13. Drag the golden child to the magic flower garden and wait for the butterflies.

  • Puzzle 15 - Buried treasure (requires Level 3 of Construction and Level 3 of Science). Search the sandy areas on the south part of the island between the food bin and the temple.

  • Puzzle 16 - Moving the boulder (requires the golden child). This one just happens on its own when the golden child is ready, you can't force it.

Reply

bathsecret, do you mean in vv1 or vv2? this is for vv1: once you have the golden child (level 3 in fertility, a nursing mother, the lagoon unblocked and the idol. just drop the mom in the lagoon), drop him on the garden, he will then summon butterflies. then drop him on that orange herb by the cave.

katkarla, jay is the main guy behind this website (note that the website is called "JAYis games.com'. i'm surprised he didn't answer your question himself. ;)

zamsh, if his skill is set to building, he should go and harvest less. just keep on dropping him on the huts if he wanders off. he'll learn......but maybe not before he dies....

charly, you're done.....but there's always vv2! i think vv2 is worth your money.

Hey I just found the treasure (I think) but it just says digging and sets up the scaffolding like they are building. How long does it take to dig it up, or do I need to do anything else?

Reply

I think I have messed up my Game. In virtual Villagers The line reads minutes for crops 9682. That is a very long time...before I read the clock cheat...I had to adjust my clock back to the original Date...it was a few days ahead. So I put it back. Reading that adjusting the clock forward, not back, would tamper with the game, I felt comfortable doing so. I had 20 minutes left for the crops to sprout up and now it's 9682 minutes. My little guys can fish now so I wasn't worried, but I started a second game to see if it was just the first game affected or the whole downloaded game and my second game now reads 1163 minutes. They can't fish yet, so I suppose they will die. Should I reinstall the game? I have already synchronized the clock with Time.windows.com as suggested in another post. I would hate to lose all of my/their hard work. Has anyone any suggestions?

Someone, Yes in a matter of speaking, It has been this way for 2 days, Last night they were in the 1000's, now (morning, running on 2x) they are in the 100's. I now have 3 games going and they are all like that. I started a new game to see if it was affected and it is. I'm concerned that all my new games will be this way. Just to note 'I did not move the clock forward I moved it back.' I guess I should reinstall the game. I have another game going at work and that is fine. What should I do? Can I fix it or reinstall? Thanks for the help!!

Reply

what does level 2 spirituality help you with??

Reply

sslewis, hm, so you didn't move the clock forward at all? but i still think moving the clock (no matter what direction) still can affect your game in weird ways. i'm sorry, but this hasn't happened to me and i don't know how to solve it.

grace, once you have a dead body, drop a villager on the top right corner. you'll see! :)

I feel like a babysitter!
My villagers always do what day want and not what I put them to do.
Instead of research they go to do landry or eat or foraging. Instead of fixing hut they go to the cactus, research, fishing or just do nothing.
I cant keep dragging them every few seconds! I cant get my trainee and adept builder to master builder like that!

Been doing and redoing Virtual Villagers: The Lost Children. Getting better at it each time but I have very sincere problem as to the vines and inscriptions. Who can read them and/or remove the vines? Know 15 special stews. It seems to be hit or miss on whether I can get my doctor to quit jumping into the magical waters of the lagoon or not. He's almost there, but...lord is he a pain.
Okay one thing I HAVE learned is to not get too attached to the li'l guys. I actually went into mourning with my first couple of sets...lol. I am making notes and much of it is easy. Master Scientists are the big point getters for sure. When one learns his trade, I switch him to another...though I do try to avoid setting any of them to parenting until they have mastered at least one trade and well on their way to the next. I get most of them to adept on farming, building, research and tech...then hone them in to each trade one at a time. So far it's been working for me except those dang vines. I have tried each of the masters so far and am wondering where I am going wrong. Anyone know the answer yet?
