I don't know of a way to blow up rocks. You need to mark them for harvest and they will eventually be used up and disappear.

To Sharon:

It won't show a quantity for the berries in the lab. They go from being grayed out when you don't have any, to being bright red when they are available. They are an infinite source and don't have a quantity written in their box like the others do. Ironwood is the same way.

You can have moons &/or stars coming down all the time...

Build the lunar &/or celestial tower and as soon as you set it down to be built, demolish it. Then get ready for the shower!

To Judy and Mimi:

You can get some extra science points by putting Stardust or Moondust on the science building. Also, I believe they gain science points faster after you buy science technology.

If he deleted the entire game from your computer, you'll just need to download it again at the website where you originally purchased the game.

I just wanted to say that i found a NEW WAY TO SOLVE THE RED ROCK MYSTERY

I had one of my tribespeople acheive the rank of legendary scientist (she opened a crate and it made her science stat go all the way up) then i used stardust on her to get her rock gathering stat up then after awhile she opened another crate that maxed out her rock gathering skills. then go to the rock and it will be solved

hope this helps!

Why is it, only one person at a time will work on the ark? I tried to get as many as i could to work on it, and every time i put a new one on, the first one quits. Everyone I try to put on there, is marked for construction.

If it still does the same thing after rebooting the game and your computer, I would suggest going back to the site where you originally purchased the game and download it again.

To Divagirl118:

There's not a quick or easy way to get science points. Putting Stadust or Moondust on the science lab will help. Other than that, just put as many people on the lab as you can and leave the game for awhile.

To grammajoe:

I noticed the same thing. However, even though you can't seem to drop more than one person on the ark at a time, if you have others set to construction as their preference, they will go to the ark on their own. It also helps to close the game for awhile on the larger buildings. Construction time speeds up when the game is closed.

I was just wondering whether or not you can return to the Island you strated with initially.

Reply

When preparing to move to a different island, you do not have to build the ark. All you have to do is place the ark on the map and demolish it. This allows you to immediately start building the boat without having the ark and saving a lot of time!

there is a crate that will give your villager energy. This energy lasts forever I guess, because she is still going after 5 hours. This energy helps because they will go faster than everyone else in the game doing whatever you want them to do.

Glitch - For building an ark without building a shipyard!

Build a shipyard but DON'T start constructing. Demolish the shipyard. A message will come up saying that you've build a shipyard (when you actually demolished it). Build and construct the ark! You are now ready to leave the island!

Just a few things I've noticed that might help!

Adults stop calling the stork at 45.

After a female has a baby, she won't have another one untill the baby turns in to a kid.

If both parents were twins, they're more likely to have twins without a potion.

If you want to build up your supply of Moondust or Star dust quickly.

Build a celestial or lunar tower. Progress it's construction slighty (it need only be 1%). Then demolish. I choose to do this with a dose of stardust for speed. You will get the usual astral shower associated with completing the building - but without all the effort and time!

How do you keep a person alive for the full 969 years when you move islands. Above it says that all living tribe members move with you, but when I moved it only took about 15 of them and left the person I had at 150.

Everyone who is alive at the time you sail is supposed to make it to the new island. The tombstones of the ones who have died stay on the old island.

Carol Barlow January 2, 2009 8:42 AM

I wonder if anyone can help me, I have read the whole of this forum and no-one seems to have had the same problem as me.

I maxed out my population on my first island and when i tried to make my tribe mate it said i already had the max amount. I have moved island twice and some of my tribe have died so i now want to have more babies but if i drag two people together it comes up with the "do you want them to mate?" message but if you click yes they just carry on doing whatever they want and don't mate.

I have got plenty of free huts so thats not the problem, and they are old enough (not too old) to have children. I can't work out what else I can do to make this happen and i am worried that my tribe are going to all die if i dont find out soon!
Thanks

Reply

To Stephanie:

I know for sure that giving the scared gray person the youth potion when they get old doesn't change their hair back. It stays gray. You can try one of the hair color potions to see if it will work. And try a moondust. If it stays gray after all that, then it's going to stay gray forever.

To Carol Barlow:

Try restarting your game. Make double sure that they are the right age and everything. Double check your population. If you drop them onto each other and get the baby message, click yes. Then be sure not to touch either of them. If you click on either of the parents-to-be, it can interrupt what they are doing and they'll go back to working. If none of this works, you may want to go back to the site where you originally purchased the game and download it again.

I don't know whether anyone else has had the same issue as me, because I just sat down and read all six pages and didn't see it mentioned once.

This happens constantly for me. I can erase one or two flowers, but the instant that I try to get rid of the third or fourth, my game crashes.

And it's not like an alert that it crashes, either. It goes back to the main screen, has that "sailing to your tribe" graphic, and iot stays there. I've tried to wait it out, but after about 15 minutes of that I got bored. When I right click on the My Tribe button thing on my task bar and click close, then the screen pops to the "pick your island" thing.

It's not really something to get in a tiff about, but it's frustrating for me because I like adding little mosaics occasionally, and I can't fix them at all without crashing my game. ;(

Reply

I am trying to increase my stardust. I created a new celestial tower, used moondust to make the construction 1%, then demolished it (again with a moondust). But nothing happened, no shower of stardust. Is this because I'm already building another celestial tower on the island?

Also, I read several times on here that items aren't used up when you make potions. I know lodestone is hard to come by so I watch my level closely. When I use it in a potion, it uses one up.
Thanks for any help...

To Casa:

There is no guarantee that you'll get a shower of stardust when you demolish a tower. That's not the way the game is designed to work. It's more of a glitch than anything. If you continue on with building the tower, I'm sure you'll get the shower of stardust.

As for the ingredients used in potions, it's only the liquid and catalyst that doesn't get used up (unless the potion blows up). The element part of the potion (mushrooms, vegetables, wood, rock, lodestone, etc.) does get used up with each potion you make.

We started to build the dock (1%), when my son decided he didn't like the placement. Hit demolish, then hit build again, but then the dock was no longer an option to build, yet the ark was!! Not knowing what else to do, we are building the ark on the beach. My son is very upset thinking we ruined the game, and our lille tribe will not be able to sail to a new island. What do you think?!

To Mary:

Your game will be fine. The ark is actually the thing you need to sail to another island. The game thinks that you built the shipyard, so you got the next step, which is the ark. Just keep building the ark and when it's done, your tribe will be able to sail to a new island.

Let me know if you have any problems. :)

Stardust and Moondust does have an effect on the ark, it's just that the ark is such a large building project that sometimes it doesn't show up in the complete percentage. Actually, the best way to get large buildings done is to close the game for awhile. When you open it back up, it's done or almost done.

The thing with the dust showers upon demolishing the tower foundations is just a fluke. Who knows why it happens or why it doesn't.

Regarding the issue of the game crashing when you erase more than a couple of flowers, I got this information from the developers -

"Yes, that's a bug, and unfortunately we have not been able to track it down as it only happens on some machines (not on our test machines!).

However, there is a workaround. Apparently when it says "sailing to your tribe", you can still move your mouse around and click the "menu" button at the bottom-right corner of the screen. You can then click "Save and Exit" and go back to the main menu. You can then click "Play" again to go back to the game and continue to play.

Also, if this happens to you a lot, you can erase flowers using the "erase all" button, rather than by erasing them individually.

Hope this helps!"
