i can only find 3 peices of the gong I'm missing the upper right peice if anyone can help? I found the one in the pond and now i'm stumped.

Reply

amy, are you sure you have level 3 of farming? Be sure you have a villager set on their master skill in detail before you drop them in the pond. I don't know what else could be wrong.

potion to restore the villagers to full health

big orange herb at the bottom, and 2 lilac ones from the grave yard

To get the gong in the stream

make sure that you have faming 3 and a master scientist then make the herbs that allows them not to breath... 1 black one from the grave yard and 2 orange ones from the bottom then get the master scientist to eat the potion and drop them in the stream.. voila!

you only need one totem for the mosiac piece... I gave up getting the totems as they take up too much room and hide collectors pieces too... only need one

:O)

I think that you will need all the collections b4 you get ur congratulations too!

Well I've got all the gong pieces and have been playing for a few weeks. Only need a few pieces of the collections. It seemed that everything was done and getting pretty boring. Then today, they had a day of celebration and all 95 of them are walking up and down the beach whistling. Its kind of weird actually. Now I can't wait for them to get in a raft and explore the south side of the island. I wonder if they come back? I hope there are more surprises that make it worth continuing to check on these self sufficient little guys.

I have everything done except 3 bugs and a butterfly. You can only ring the gong every 24 hours(it will glitter when able to ring it.) It will tell you what the gong did at the bottom of the screen(sometimes it's not good)I have 50 totems and that must be the limit because I have 4 or 5 other villagers with 3 masters but they don't turn into elders.

I finished the game but was letting it run to get totems. Well I am quiting now. I was cheated. I got another esteemed elder, number 9, but no totem.

Another thing that happened twice. There is a new tomb stone and the name on it is someone that is still walking around. Like I said that happened 2 times now. So I quit for good.

Has anyone else had their village's children line up in formation and it says they are "attending classes,"? I don't know how I did it. They were all sitting around to "listent to a story," and I was trying to have a couple of adults "go indoors," very near the fire where the story telling occurs. When the children lined up in 2 single file lines and they were "attending lessons." can anyone tell me anything about this?

Careful with the stews (I've finished the game so yay) - three black vine herbs in one stew managed to kill (with two times eaten) and halfway kill (once eaten) several villagers.
Two of the purple flowers above and to the left of the cemetary and one orange flower from the left middle of the bottom of the screen is always good (you should see a rainbow when you make it correctly).
Good luck.

Reply

Suza, I wish I knew, I am in the same boat as you are with the duplicates. I need 2 rocks, 2 bugs, and 1 shell.

lillyj how to pick herbs

first you need the cauldron, if you don't have that you cannot pick herbs. Put a person on the cauldron and they will put it on the fire, then put the person on it again and they will get water for the stew. That is when you can put people on the herbs to make them pick them. Oh, and after, and only after the water is in the cauldron and you pput a person on the pot again to get the veggies in the stew.

Virtuallyinneed: Check on your details button for the villagers and see if any are in Parenting carrers. If they are, switch them. The only way I can think of to get tech points faster is to put ALL villagers at the research table, or put your game on high speed through the options. I can't think of anything else for that.

Reply

jessica: everyone works at their own pace. Most people have done more in a week than that. If you want to get going faster on your game, read the posts above and see if there is anything you can do.
growing villagers, I think that means babies? If so, just put a woman on a man villager. You don't have to wait for them to go to the "love shack", just keep putting them on each other until there is a baby. You can do this very fast.

Lottie:

Puzzle 5 is completed when your villagers learn mastery of six special plants located in various parts of the village. Drag a villager to each of them and watch for the message that each has been mastered. The plants are (beginning in the northwest part of the village and moving clockwise): the odd-looking plant immediately to the left of the very dry grass, the blue flower between the thorns and the rocks, the small lavender flower at the northern edge of the graveyard, the black flowers near the waterfall, the bright reddish flowers south of the dam site, and the large orange-red flower at the south edge of the village.

A quick trick for teck points. When you see a collectable pause the game with your space bar then get as many kids as you can on the object, then hit the space bar again. This should be done quickly the object will still disapear in pause mode. It doesnt work all the time and seems to work better on rare or uncommon ones.
The most kids ive seen get the collectable at the same time is 4 but still it bumps up your teck alot faster.

Reply

Carla, to make a master farmer without fishing you have to keep dropping a farmer on the garden space and they will plant crops or water the garden. This adds up to improvement.

top left corner, there is a purple flower bush, dry grass is there. put villager on the plant to get dry grass. Also, they will not get it if you have not "discovered" the fire pit yet. Put a villager on the fire pit.

You need level three farming to get the fish out of the pond. Look at your tech options, see on the farming picture the third level has a fish with a contiuing arrow around it.

Do you have to put a village up to the gong before you can ring it, or do they ring it on their own. I have tried for 2 days to ring the gong but I can't ring it. In the past I have just put a villager up to the gong and if the 24 hours is up they ring it...however...that's not working any longer.

Some of my villagers stopped learning, and the others learn much slower than they should too! what the heck?!
For exapmple I've got one, who is an adept builder since ten years, she is nery close to be master but she doesn't reach it, she is in the same level at research an farming too, but I can't make her to master any of them! I've got a treinee builder who is a treinee since 5 years and just refuse to upgrade to adept. And anyway, almost non of my people upgrades! What shall I do, my masters will die soon!

Rhiannon, all the beetles show up in the cut down thorny patch. The rare bettles (bottom row) are very hard to see they blend in with the flowers. Just keep watching for them.

I played with the system time becouse I didn't want to wait the time for the improvements. I shouldn't have: I reseted the clock, and it fooled the game: it made ridiculus farming times and my tribe almost starved to death. And what is even worse somehow it incresed the nursing time to about a year (not ingame, but real!). And since I had no children and all my fertile women were pregnant this meant the extinction of the tribe.
So I recommend strongly, do not bother the system time, becouse you may end up like me!
