I am having an issue, it may be the user though... I am having a problem making babies... i have tried using every male and every female more than once... And now all my villagers are over the age of 14... No babies.... Does anyone think this could be a bad version of the game... or is it just me???

Or perhaps, i got stuck with a bunch of unfertile mertils???

Hey please help me! I don't know the way to finish the game. I have finished all the Puzzles but the game is not finish, How can I finish it?

thanks for all

Jenna A, I think everyone means, about the clock, is when you try to put it back to the right time it will mess up the game.

Shannon, your villagers are over 14 ? They have to be over 18 to have babies. Don't you have any adults? Go to detail and put a male,18 and over, on parenting. Then go back to the game and teach him to make babies. He will seek out any females over 18 and under 50 to make babies.

Laoboy, there isn't an ending to the game. When you finish the puzzles the game goes on and on. Have you gotten all 50 totems?

I have mastered the game... But, I can not "bang the gong" I did it the first time, but now when I drag someone over to the gong they just admire it #(*#@(*...
How do I make them bang it. And yes I did wait a whole day, got up this morning all ready to bang the gong and NOTHING !! help ...

Reply

Jollyanna , it takes 24 hours before you can ring it again. If you did it last night you can't do it again until tonight. The gong will have small sparkles coming from it when it can be rung again.

Does anyone have suggestions as to which techs to get in what order?

my game stopped updating on "real time" i spent 8 hrs logged off of my pc last night to wake up to no more tech point nor are any of my buildings any more progressed at being built. i messed around with the time on a previous tribe just to see how it works then reset my time to normal and made a new tribe but since then things are only updating when im watching the game. since ive tried moving the time forward by even days and nothing progresses should i just reinstall the game?

Reply

Barbara , I am not sure what order to buy techs. I played 2 games, 1 game I bought techs in order of price and 1 game I bought them in order of need. Both games worked so the order is up to you.

Hello,
I just started playing VV2 and am at the part where my Master Researcher found the materials for the "sharp tools" near the twisted roots and vines. She collected the first piece but is now saying she can't complete the tools without "special wood"? I've been looking all over the island for the past hour and still have found no hint of it! Please help if you know what I should do. Thank you very much,

Malaika13, the wood is right below the stone. The wood looks like roots.

Help with teaching, sometimes when you drop a adept parent male on a child he will teach. Sometimes he will tell a story. I never know which he will do.

Stacy, that's about all there is to the story. When you ring the gong watch what it says at the very bottom of the game screen.

marco, don't know for sure. Just let him go on healing.

MisterTea August 13, 2007 9:01 PM

Hi,

I found out a cheat way to get instant babies without even "going indoors".
This was completely unintentional but basically...

You just have to drag a female onto a male several times continuously until the female is holding a child. It helps to reposition the two villagers after each drag. Just make sure it says going indoors before your next drag.
I have only tried this moving female to male but it probably works other way also.
This is also a good way of increasing a female's parenting ability as each attempt adds to it.
Quite a funny find really, who'd have thought giving birth was so easy and instant?

Happy baby making,
cheers!

Reply

scarecrow, After you have the garden drop a gardener on the root looking stuff left of the cemetery, twice, he will build a scarecrow.

MisterTea, also if you drop them together just watch your counter. If it goes up she is pregnant.

Reply

Stacy - yeah, that's it. Question to others who have completed the gong. My guys didn't do anything special when i rang it. What did yours do?

Marco - make your adept doctor study the strange plants. That and healing others is all you can do to get him to master. I had the same problem with mine, but eventually he will become master.

For those trying to get master parents... if you are at your max # of villagers for huts available, keep letting them embrace. You'll get a message indicating they can't breed, but the parenting skills will increase. Annoying message and doorbell sound, but if you need parenting to get an elder, it works.

Reply

Teaching is another way to get parenting skills. If the villager is an adept parent, he will teach. Otherwise he just tells a story.

What other games are like this, other than VV1? Any suggestions?

Reply

If you are running low on food you can do this simple thing. Put the game on pause and sweep the island for mushrooms. Mushrooms and items will still appear but the time of the game will not pass since it's in pause :). Just drag&drop a kid on the mushroom then unpause the game just enough for the kid to bring it to the food basket. Then you pause the game again and start once more sweeping. You can do this as long as you want and your villagers won't starve since the game is ... paused. Also goes with item so your tech points can also grow without the time of game evolving.

Reply

Armoorenc , build a dam next to the farm land. Tech 2 farming + drag a builder over to the lower part of the river. The game will say a great place to build a dam. Drop the builder.

Lisa, go into detail and set a male villager on parenting (he has to be 18 or over). Then keep dropping him on females until he is a trainee parent. After that he will do it himself. Females have to be over 18 and under 50 to have kids.

Jack , I know of no way to hurry the crops. Have kids collect mushrooms. Drop farmers in the ocean to fish. Check the coconut trees.
Skills just take a long time to increase.

Sandra, drop builder on a hut to fix it. That will increase the skill.

How do you get coconuts? It said that the people couldn't reach it.

How do you get stew? And what herbs are you talking about? (I read the previous posts)

Which direction is where you're supposed to build the dam? Because I found a stream and it said it was kind of blocked off or something like that. Is that it?

Thanks a bunch. :)

Anonymous, You need farming tech 2 to climb the tree. If you have that, drop an adult on the middle tree and they will climb to pick the coconuts.

Wishie, Yikes, not so fast. To start drop adults in the ocean to fish. Have kids pick up mushrooms. Coconuts, stew, and the dam are later in the game. Earn tech points to buy new techs to get these things. Have kids pick up shells and butterflies to get some tech points too.

XD Lol, I did that already. >.< I don't know how to get the coconuts and where do find the stew... I don't have a pot either >.<

Oh yay, I just got the Coconut feature... XD But they still keep going back to the ocean to look for fish... But isn't it more efficient to get coconuts?

Okay, I am confused. I made the stew to get the gong piece from the pond. My villager ate the stew, and fished the gong piece from the pond. He walked halfway to the gong housing... then it said he was waiting for someone.

Now... the gong piece has been taken from the pond, so it's not there anymore. But it's not at the gong housing either... and my villager no longer has it! What happens now? Did I lose that gong piece? The puzzle isn't completed either... does that mean I can't complete it now? Anyone else have this happen?

What are the gong effects? I saw absolutely nothing when I rang the gong. Someone later said to read the little note at the bottom, but clearly I missed it. Is there a list anywhere of the potential gong effects? Because of now, I see zero, so why bother to keep playing the game?

You don't need level three science or exploration to win, you don't need all of the collections... if the gong was the end, it seems a real let down.

My cauldron disappeared. I don't know where to find it so I can make stews. Do I need to uncover the wall first?

Wishie, coconuts eventually deplete (it starts at 1500). The most efficient is to get the farm and the scarecrow, until you get level 3 (maybe even after, seeing as the farm is much closer, I left it on overnight without the scarecrow and had 1200 food at noon). Also, you can only get out the algae at level 3 farming.

I found some interesting glitches.... I mean, not THAT interesting... But still fun.

I returned to my game, the 6 year old was dead... The dam was completed and there was no food... The villagers were putting water on the crops and the countdown was at about 2 minutes for "crops" to be finished.

My computer froze so I had to restart it by forcing it to shut down (holding the power off). I came back to the game and the villagers were harvesting the crops, and there were no birds attacking them or anything (like what I read). Previously, I couldn't build a dam so this is my 2nd game... I don't know if the game has bugs or what, but sometimes weird things do happen.

Also, This 20 year old girl on the island and this 40 year old dude, The girl went to the guy and it had "embracing" in her status area. I put the two next to the "love hut" and then forced them on each other so I could raise my population, With each failure her parenting skills went up. So I decided to be sneaky and just keep forcing them on each other without letting them go to the hut, Her parenting skills went up over half way within a couple minutes but suddenly..She had a baby in mid-air.

Apparently you don't need to be in the hut to get a baby...

Oh yeah, I was testing the whole no-crow attack thing so I forced the program to shut down with the task manager... I reloaded the game to find that everything was reset to a previous time (I don't know when) but some of the things didn't change like the progress on the love hut repair or the baby countdown, The 20 year old didn't have her baby anymore either and my food count was down a hundred points and the tech points were down 300, Other than that...Everything else was saved I think... ?

I'm basically trying to build a scarecrow or something, This game takes too long... My Master Builder can't open up the crate on the shoreline either?

I've purchased level 2 of science, farming and engineering but not much is changing.

Never mind about the totem question. I just got my final 2 totems. I am assuming that the villager I spoke of in my previous question died in the split second between making her 3rd Master and being changed to Esteemed Elder. Therefore, she, technically, never *made* it.

Anyways, all's well that ends well. Nice game. Now I just ring the gong daily, and mess around with villagers' hair color....lol

Here's how to hex-edit your villager's stats:
Editing your same game file could corrupt your save game making it unplayable. So be sure to make a backup first.
The save game files have the extension .ldw, and are not located in the same directory as the VV program itself (on mine, it was in c:\Documents and Settings). You want to find the file "Isola221.ldw," and open it with your hex editor. From here on, please note that I am giving all addresses in Decimal, and all values in Hex.
In the file, your first character's information begins at address 600d. That's the first letter of his or her name. Your next character begins at 1336d, which is 736 bytes down. For each successive character, just add 736 to the last value.
Keeping this in mind, your first characters' attributes are located at these addresses:
1. Parenting: 1240 ($4D8)
2. Building: 1244 ($4DC)
3. Farming: 1248 ($4E0)
4. Healing: 1252 ($4E4)
5. Research: 1256 ($4E8)
Remembering that your character starts at address 600, just add 640 to that address and you have 1240, which is the stat for parenting. So for all characters, just add 640 to the first address, and you'll have their parenting stat. The stats (in the order above) would then be +640, +644, +648, +652, and +656 bytes away from the starting address of each character. Unfortunately, there's no simpler way to explain it, which is why I'm giving these as relative values.
As for the values for the attributes themselves, they range between $00 ("Untrained") and $6F ("Master"). So with this information, you can turn every last one of your villagers into an Esteemed Elder!
To give your characters more food and tech points, the value for food starts at 191,140d (replace this and the next two bytes with $40 $0D $03 for 200,000 Food), and the value for Tech starts at 191,196d (replace with $40 $42 $0F for 1,000,000 Tech Points).
I'm still trying to figure out how to edit the age, health, and "puzzles completed" stats, but this information alone (hopefully) will prove itself to be very helpful.
