I was stuck on puzzle 14.

Basically I put the totem on the uncovered mosaic but no gong piece appeared.

Anyway, I went into the official LAST DAY OF WORK website, clicked on SUPPORT on the top banner and from their ready list of FAQ there was one which is listed as "cant find a piece of gong". If you click on that it seems that there is a faulty copy of VV2 circulating. If you request support, they will e-mail you with instructions how to download the correct version of the game WITHOUT losing any progress!. I've just done it and at long last have retrieved the last piece of gong!! Yippee!!

The only bad thing is it takes them about 72 hours to respond, but worth it in the end!!!

Hope this helps some of you.

[Edit: This was a known issue from the early days of VV2's release (February, 2007). The issue has long since been resolved and you can be SURE that the version downloaded using the links above ARE THE LATEST AND CORRECT VERSION. -Jay]

Is making a fire a source of infinite experiance for building-like fishing would do for farming, or the research table would do for researching?

Reply

Angie, that's a tough one. I don't know.

carrri , After you get the cutting tools drop some one, I don't remember who I think it is a builder, on the thorny patch to clear it. It takes a long time.

Carri, At the top of this page, under the blue box, click on Virtual Villagers 2: The Lost Children walkthrough. All the stews are listed.
Special wood? I don't know what you mean.
Brown plant is over next to the dry grass top left of the island.
To change clothes, drop some one on the roof of the hut. It cost 5000 tech points to change clothes.

how do i get rid of bad stew?

what is the fastest way to get an esteemed villager? also who actually inherited isola?...and what about the markings?..is there a big ending? and what is the fastest way to get tech points? i also hear about raft and 8 people going to twilight zone what's that?

Reply

to: everyone

the normal limit on a village is 90 people
however if you're a die hard fan it is possible to get more
*simply collect all the rare items on the island and you'll recieve +5 max on population for most collectables ( up to 115 )
*you can also pray for twins or triplets
this helps when you're one away from maxing out and a female has twins, this gives you a temporary +1 max on your population (warning this is usually temporary, because it will lead to a quicker death of an older villager)
- hope this helps

Tip: put pause on your game if you are gone for more than a day. check back frequently when you first start the game. you can leave longer when your village gets to be more advanced

Tezmara, how did you do that???
Was that VV1 or VV2? Do tell.

Reply

FluffyBunny I played VV2 first and I wasn't confused or anything... you dont need to play VV1 to understand the story or even to understand the game that much- the walkthrough basically gives you everything you need to know.The only thing is, if you decide to play VV1 after playing VV2, don't do what I did and spend hours looking for collectibles :)

to get rid of a stew, leave the game and come back it will be gone.

Candice, I had a elder with no totem. He got one later in the game. In fact he died twice. Who knows?

SahBeh , you pause the game with your space bar.

shesmiles, you make them eat the stew by dropping them on it.Watch what the game says.
To make a stew you need the cauldron. Drop someone on it to get water, drop again to get food. Then you need 3 herbs.
More tech points, have the kids pick up extra collectibles.

kitty, the scarecrow. Get wood from the vines left of the cemetery twice by a farmer.

SahBeh - you can use the code available by clicking on the "+ your website" link in the header of any review to add one of our icons to your website. It's very easy, just copy and paste the code you see.

What is with the totem pole? Do they just get them after mastering 3 different things?

Angie , yes, the totem poles just pop up where ever the elder is. You can move them where ever you want. Sometimes they block your view of things. Just grab them by the top, like you do people, and drop them where ever.

Confused , build a dam in the creek. Drag a builder to the creek until the game says a good place to build a dam. Then drop him there.

yo, After you purchase Level 2 of both Culture Tech and Science Tech, a foundation will appear that your villagers can work on to build a sewing hut.

Angie , After purchasing Level 3 of Farming Tech, drop a master farmer or master scientist into the pond, where they will collect algae-eating fish that they can use to repopulate the ocean. Once sufficient fish have been placed in the ocean, the algae will once again be under control and the villagers will have unrestricted fishing.

NEVERMIND figured it out!!! Over in the pond by the stream on the right hand side of the screen!

The algea eating fish you need are in the pond, drag farmers/scientists over there.

Twins and trips are all by chance. Sometimes a master parent will have them.

Sewing hut, After you purchase Level 2 of both Culture Tech and Science Tech, a foundation will appear that your villagers can work on to build a sewing hut.

Hello. Just call me Duckii.

I have a problem. I am trying to get my villagers to master all the herbs. When I get to the blue plant that is between the vines and rocks, they do not "master" it...they just get better at healing. I am wondering if there is anything else I need to do in order to get them to master a plant besides just dragging and dropping.

Also...I have seen people talk about a clock on the bottom right-hand corner of the game screen. I do not have one. Is this bad??? Or are there just...two types of the game?? You can, though, pause it at the menu..but you have to click on Options and the you can trigger the spead and things like that.

Please respond soon...help is highly appreciated.

Dee, there is nothing in the cave. We that have played VV1 were all disappointed too. We expected some thing.

Duckii , be sure the villager you are using for the herbs isn't a healer. Use anyone other then a healer.
I think the clock they are talking about is the clock on your computer not in the game. Be careful if you change it. That can mess up your game.

Duckii , for me the average life span is about 75.
You won't have any babies any more. Females have to be under 50. When I had unlimited fishing and thing pretty well settled down I put one young male, (over 18) on parenting in detail. You have to teach him what to do (LOL). That way you will always have babies.

I have completed the game, my question is, I somehow got a villager to ring the gong, since then I can't seem to get anyone to ring it. Is there something special I have to do, as I said the first time was inadvertently. Please respond as this is really bugging me.

Reply

Maria , your villagers can only ring the gong once every 24 hours. The gong will sparkle when you can ring it again.
To ring it pick up a villager and drop them on the gong. Watch the bottom of the screen to see what it does when it rings. Sometimes it's bad, once I lost all my food. Once all the women in the village got pregnant all at the same time.

How do you farm? I'm playing the online version ( I know it's bad) and I have level 2 farming. I read about a dam that is used to make fertile land, but I can't get the skills to make the dam in the online version. Is there any other way I can farm?

Thanks obie3, for your response. 50 is max for totems and graves is ok. but when i check on the statistics, i dont go beyond 50 on Esteemed Elders. and interestingly, my ranking on this is one 40, which means there are others who have generated more esteemed elders than i did ! this is what is puzzling me....

nadia, that is a hard one to pick. If you have enough food and not many people I would say buy level 2 of science. If you need food wait for farming 3. Science tech says it helps get tech points faster. I don't know. It's up to you.
Did you know if you have master scientists, they make more tech points then adapts. If your not working for elders put your master scientists on research.

Hey steph, i think 800 is the maximum you get! but dont worry prepare this stew ( 2 purple flowers,1 orange flower) this will make the villagers health fully restored! so keep at least 2 farmers at the field, or 3! The rest put them on research till you get 90,000 tech points to buy 3 level farm tech, to get rid of the algae in the ocean! after this no need to worry about food anymore! have fun!

Reply

Hey Nadia,
Its better go for the 90,000 tech 3 farming! by the time you accumulate the points , keep preparing this stew - "2purple flowers + 1orange flower" this can feed your hungry villagers and restore full health! If you get tech 3 farm - no worries about anymore! good luck!

Reply

Steph, I don't know any way to increase the crops. Every time there is a new crop there is a new batch of coconuts. If you drop farmers on the middle tree trunk they will pick coconuts. If you are fast you can get a lot of them.
Did you know if you keep your game going, not pause, when you leave and come back later sometimes there are more coconuts.
