Everyone read the strategy and puzzle guide. It will answer many of your questions.

http://virtualvillagers.com/strategyguides/thelostchildren/index.html

Reply

for making sharp tools you must have first level 2 of exploration
drag a master scientist to the northern part of the village where he will see something among the rocks near the twisted pieces of wood and vines. Your scientist will need to make a second trip to finish the tools, so take him to the twisted wood and vines to get the necessary materials.

Glitch Found: I have found a way to reach a maximum population of 91 villagers, in theory you could reach 92. When you have a population of 89 villagers, make two villagers procreate, if they have twin or triplets your population will excede 90. I have a screenshot showing 91 villagers.

eej bubbldog,

for a scarecrow you must have a adept or master farmer.
Drag an adept or master farmer to the twisted pieces of wood and vines that are located in the northern portion of the village. The scarecrow requires two trips to complete,

I have a question. I didn't see anything about it in any walkthrough or help section.

I was lucky enough to find a villager with the like: Running. They helped so much that I decided to start over again with a new village and picked one with 2 runners. One male and one female.

I was hoping to breed them and make more runners but unfortunately it didn't work that way. No runners were born.

Does anyone know how to effect the Likes and Dislikes oppions in the game?

Reply

Sam, for algea-eating fish you must first have level 3 of farming tech. take a master farmer or master scientist to 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.
the pond is the river on the right side.

tracious, i am not sure, but try upgrade your culture to level 3.

ok..here's my problem..i'm trying to finish up with the game coz i only have the last piece of gong.

i've put the totem in center of the ancient ruins, which one of my esteemed elder found it.

i dragged her to the piece..she took it and she walked slowly (coz she's an elder) to the gong encasement, but suddenly other villager walked up to her and told her a joke and in a sudden the 4th piece disappeared.

i tried to drag another totem into the center but nothing happened!!

what should i do??
please someone!! i dnt want 2 start over. i already hve 70 villagers!
:(

Reply

anomumous 1: read my last lettter

anonymous 2: keep trying. every times a villager get's "level up" (4 levels: untrained villager, trained..., adept..., and master ...) it need more experienced for the next level

anonymous 3: first make a fire, then drag a villager on the cauldron (if you don't have one you first must have lvl 2 of exploration). Now your villager prepares a stew.
repeat this twice for food and water.
when you done that you can drag a villager to a plant. example: the orange plant on the rightside down.
now the villager gonna add this in the cauldron. do this with 3 different plants. now your stew is ready.

Bj: for coconuts you can't do a thing. be patient and your coconuts wil grown.
for the doctor you just must heal a lot.

tbxo: you must have lvl 3 of that not level 2

anonymous 4: you may choose yourself. I've done it with a master builder for his strength.

Ken: 2 orange, 1 black

anne: I don't know the answer. have you al ready clear the torny bushes? if not. maybe he is in your tech center, waiting til the bushes are cleared.
If you al ready cleared it, the only thing can be that it is already there. visible or unvisible. try to ring the gong if all the peaces are intact.

I don't know what to do. I went to bed and had about 25 villagers, when I woke up I only had 5 (I'm guessing some sickness wiped them all out?). I have only 4 guys and 1 woman, so I kept having her have babies but she only had boys (3 in fact). Then, she turned 51 and stopped being able to have another baby.

Am I doomed? Is there any way to get another girl? I know on the online version children sometimes wonder in from the jungle. Can this happen? Is there any way to save my people?

I think this game is ingenious! It has been a pleasant distraction during my busy work season. I've had 3 tribes running simultaneously. These spoilers were great tips in times of stress. My best tribe has 105 (am missing a butterfly) and I've completed all the puzzles; my oldest guy was 79. I've had trouble getting more than 4 totems, but continue to improve controlling tasks to gain 3 masters per villager. Question: does the magical waterfall ever do anything special? I keep waiting for that... Also, i expected that the hospital would be a place where the 'adept doctor' could 'work' and gain healing skills. Was disappointed on that one as it's difficult to improve healing skill if your tribe is healthy. Adept doctors tend to do laundry & swim unless contantly monitored. Also wish the mosaic was interactive once established. Maybe i have missed a few tips. But i have very much enjoyed this game and I happily await the next version of The Lost Children! whenever that may be...

More spoilers

Spoiler for early food bonus:

1. Early on, leave a child on the beach especially around the birds. The child will see birds leaving fish on the rocks. STEAL some fish for a quick 100 food.

Spoiler for child with blocks:

2. Child that plays with blocks: let him/her play, s/he will get HUGE builder bonus (at current age)

Parenting bonus (more kids, less attempts) Not really a spoiler so I won't tag it as such: Stew combination Orange (south central) + orange + red (south east near ruins) causes embracing. No noticeable improvement in fertility, but you can drop couples together with fewer "running away." Handy to have for making Master parents out of old farts. Will also improve younger parenting skills, ergo fertility.
Curious if anyone has found a way to keep farmers on the crops instead of harvesting coconuts. I usually *swarm-harvest* the crops to build up a food reserve, with the hope that the coconuts will tide over between harvests. But with good crops in the field, my farmers are going after the coconuts.
And hint for the algae:

when you master the required tech, get every Master Scientist and Master Farmer, drop them in the lagoon (pond?). It took me 10 fish (two trips with 7 masters, and 4 were still walking).

Last: the site moderator should start deleting the comments that have been asked 40 times. If people would READ the hints and walkthroughs, or even the spoilers there wouldn't be 27 'HELP my villagers are dying and my ocean has algae!'

Reply

I read the comments but I didn't see this...sorry if I missed it though. But I have

two people with a master in farming, researching, and building but no totems

and I don't get what I did wrong.

Reply

Alright, I really enjoy this game but I think a flaw is that you can really only build up the 'building' skill in the beginning, and then if those master builders die before you have three...you can never solve one of the gong puzzles. unless i'm missing a way of increasing building skill, besides actually building.

Reply

hi Eighth-1der,

what do you mean with kids playing with blocks? where do u find these blocks?

martin

Reply
Eighth-1der January 1, 2008 11:21 PM

Another hint - this isn't really a spoiler, more of a walkthrough, as it uses information on the strategy guides, but with a twist.

Faster doctors:
make a stew with a green cloud that "Makes the Villager very ill." (there are 5 recipes) Any other villager can heal the sick one, and will gain healing skill as s/he does. The best use of this seems to be to take several children and have them eat the sick stew. Then have another child heal the sick ones. Keep doing this and the "healer" will gain significant skill. It is possible to have a 3-4 yr old with the healing skill of Adept although it will show as "Apprentice." This can get you a really big head-start toward a master doctor.

Since doctors don't seem to study the plants on their own like they did in VV 1, you can also use this hint to make better doctors as adults

Some more hints on island events

Bottles of liquid on the beach

Drinking anything will reduce skill or health. Always pour it out

A child that claims to be the fastest runner:

Letting her race will make her sad and never run again.
Telling her she is the fastest will make her run during every task.

- - - - - - - - - - - - -
Ittleos (Martin):
Sorry, the child with blocks is an "Island Event" One of several random occurrences that pop up with a yellow window with two options. A regular event seems to be the vial with some color of liquid. Options are drink or pour it out.

If anyone else has seen more Island events: I would love to see what things I can expect.

-Thanks Confused 1

Reply

I figured out how to keep the villagers alive during a food shortage. two things: one, if you have atleast 10 food points, make a stew with 2 purple herbs and 1 orange. This will restore their health if they're weakened. Two, whenever you get a child to pick a mushroom, pause the game and drop every villager on the food bin at once and then unpause. They will all get a full meal off the one mushroom.

Reply

To get more mushrooms/ collectables:

I thought I was imagining it, but I tested it a couple of times:
In the top right corner above the graveyard. Little pink petals float down. if you get a child to catch them (in the circle around its feet) either a mushroom or a collectable will appear on the island when they have all been caught - handy when you are low on food.
Also there is a little white blob that looks like a stone on the patch of brown grass between the farm and the hut that you have to repair. The same thing happens if you drop a child over the stone five times or more. As soon as you have done either of the above, take a child to search around the island. They usually appear on the beach.

Reply

You can also put all the villagers onto the coconut-palms to harvest them, even if there are only 8 left. while one villager ist harvesting the last coconuts, all the others climb the plams and will come back with coconuts too.

Another island event:

One of my villagers found black seeds beneath dead plants. Eat them oder plant them. I plant them and other plants nearby died too, the text said. but no obvious result on the island

Reply

q deni's hint (mushrooms/collectables):
i think those things appear more often when you drop children whereever you want. maybe the game recognizes when you play active and gives you the possiblility to do something.

Reply

To the person asking about mastering building skill later in the game

, it doesn't need to be at the begining... after everything is built, your builders will continue to examine/fix the huts that are finished and go up building skills still. To train them, just keep dropping them on a completed hut

Reply

I had a weird island event once. The villagers found a ball (white opaque, I think.) I chose for an adult villager to take it. Then "a couple nights later on a full moon" the ball started glowing. When the villager approached it, her body was switched with the body of another villager! The scientist became a farmer, and the farmer became a scientist.

I just started my tribe yesterday and thought I could safely leave them alone - I had 10. Today I checked on them and there were only 2 left, the others died. They are trained level 2 in Sciend, Tech, farming and exploration so I don't want to abandon them if I don't have to. They have a successful farm and scarecrow. I made a nice stew and nursed them back to full health. Here is my problem...

They are both female! Is there anything I can do or hope for? Will any males come to the village later besides the wild boy (not sure if he is one of the dead or not)?

Thanks so much...

Try putting whichever is more experienced with parenting to the inexperienced one OR change their "job" to parent then they'll breed with anyone.Also try to brew the embarcing stew of Orange/Orange/Red flowers then they'll all be in the mood & also they'll be more fertile so they won't run away.I'm not too sure why they won't grow but it takes approximately 1 hour to 1 year.

Here's my problem. I can't fish, I'm out of coconuts and my village is only sustaining itself with crops which is only about 800 food every hour r half (forgot) Thing is that i want to grow the amount of ppl but there is'nt enough food to last them until the next harvest. So far i've got 19 villagers and when the next crop is allmost due i only have 20 food left. So if i add more ppl my villagers will have to start going hungry until the next harvest and so on until they can no longer survive and die. Is there something i can do so that i don't have to wait for my villagers to gain 90000 tech points so i can clear the algae in the ocean? Or am i doomed to waiting for my small group of scientist to beat their brains out and gain those 90000 tech points?
