I am seeking advice on how to get twins & triplets. I have went through over 16 generations and have over $3.7 mil in the bank with no luck.

Also I have 3 bugs that I havent even found one of - all the ones in the 2nd row. Any suggestions other than to continue making it rain?

Only other tropy I need is for the serious infection? Any ideas on that?

Thanks!

Diane -

Twins and triplets are a random event, so there's not much you can do except keep trying. As for the bugs, I have found that some of them come out more at night when it's raining, so you could try that.

Serious infection is a random event. Keep an eye on anyone who gets multiple minor infections and whose health is steadily declining. Buy the doctor's visit to check on those folks, the constant minor infections can be a sign of a more serious underlying condition.

Dianne:

About finding bugs:

Sometimes your neighbor will send you an email that there is a rare collectible in your yard and you should hurry to get it. If you open that email right away, pause your game and go looking.

I assume you mean the dragonfly, the brilliant blue butterfly and the moth are the ones you are missing? If the moth alights on the gravel, it can be very hard to see.

To increase your chances of getting multiple births:

Use the baby boost -- but only once! -- on one of your little people. I've found that it works best with a couple, both of whom want children, although I don't know if that's relevant.

To crystluncrn24: Did you ever get your remote from the red flower? My remote is in the same place and I can't get it! Frustrating! Anyway, I tried to get the maid to come by not cleaning for a week and it didn't work. Does anyone know how to get the maid to come?

Maid service is a random event, it happens when it happens. Have you tried dropping a very small child on the remote? They can sometimes get it when it is in an inconvenient place.

Does anyone know what the 9 good behaviors are in order to get the trophy? I have 7 and wanna know what the other 2 are. Thanks

Hi,

I am having real problems with this app! I originally tried the lite version 1st and enjoyed it so downloaded the full version (both to my ipod touch) Since downloading the full version, everytime I exit the application I lose all my progress, I tried waiting til they had children as previously recommended on this site but to no avail!
Any help is welcome as it now becoming frustrating starting again everyday!!

Miss Y:

The nine good behaviors are the ones listed in the trophy list immediately before the trophy for praising:

Fire Stopper (putting out an oven fire)
1000 Strokes (brushing hair)
Lotta Latte (making a grand latte)
Funky Smell (throwing out rotten fish)
Go-fer it (chasing gophers)
Everything in its place (cleaning the nightstand)
Sleeping Dragon (practicing Kung Fu)
Care and Feeding (making a meal)
Boob Tube (turning off the TV)

when you start out in the store area is there only the groceries, med, and upgrade, then does the varied items and home improvement come in later on..? cause these 2 spot are empty on mine, FYI playing this on the iphone.

I agree with the page in that twins and triplets are natural. I had twins in my first generation after one baby, I have five kids in my second generation using no baby boosts, so I think that if you have perscitance (and young parents, mine are 31) you can have multiple kids with no help

Thanks.

C - medicine

In the 2 lower rows of the shops you will find every kind of medicine, your people need. Starting with throat pills, antitussiv sirup , peptic sirup and so on.
When you cant see it, you might have a technical issue and should try downloading the game again. You should see the complete shop already during demo

I was wondering if one of your parents die if the other parent will remarry? is there any divorces between marriages? what is the age that the children will go to college?

i also kept the children on studying/homework, putting them into the office kitchen, and workshop, and had them do all the take out trash and pick u trash and laundry....one of them loves doing the cooking, cleaning and chores of the house, the other loves to read, study and take tests.

best tip start them early on copying what mom/dad do b4 children were born and then you have good obeying kids instead of lazy.

Reply

Thanks Kayleigh!
I can see everything, but when I click on the medicine it says "not everything in the store is available in the trial version" I was wondering if there is some way to get it in the trial version or some way to help my people get better without the medicine?

Are you playing the computer version or the i-phone version? If it says you can't access it in the trial version, there may be nothing you can do except buy the full version.

Bella,

By "gradge" I assume you mean the shed behind the house and beside the workshop, right? Well if you take a look at the "Repairs and Household Items" section you will find your answer. You have to click the little "Hide Spoilers" line, then read a little bit, then click the next "Hide Spoilers" line and find the bit about the "Locked Shed Door."

I hope that is easy enough to understand. The only reason I write it all the way out is because you seem to have trouble with words like, please and garage so I really tried to make it as clear as possible.

Good Luck!

The mother of my family died (36 old ) and the father is now 38 with 4 children. Can he receive a marriage proposal and get married again or is this impossible??
Because I have read on some forum that players had their parents re-married after the partner died, they even made more children with the new wife or husband. So I was wondering could this really happen or should I just give up on this generation and start a new generation soon?

I just had to start over on one of my families. I was sad, and a little mad. I work so hard to make it to 21 generations. Now all of that is gone. That sucks. When that happens you should be able to take from past people and use them.

My people will not have babies. I have had over 15 families die off because they will not have babies. I have tried baby boost, which did nothing.

I heard that there can be adoption before marriage, and i so much want to try this, so I adopted this girl when she's 26 and I refused 3 marriage proposals till now, and I am hoping that she will adopt a little kid before she gets married. But now she is 31 and no adoption offers appeared and am afraid she will lose the chance of getting married and having babies of her own, so should i just let her get married now or wait longer? I mean what are the chances of that adoption before marriage thing?? Please help!

eileen October 15, 2009 12:45 AM replied to littlegirl

littlegirl - Both marriage proposals and adoptions are random events. Marriage proposals will continue to come in anytime your peep is single, even when they are older, so I suppose it doesn't hurt to wait. However there's no guarantee you will get an adoption offer at all!

Ok so am now on the 10th generation of family. I have got ALL the trophies apart from the collecting ones! I have still got 1 rare photo piece + 6 bugs to get. I am constantly checking it (at all times of day) + constantly making rain storms but havnt found a new item for about 3 generations. I do want to complete the game, but for the last 4 generations at least it has been boooooring!!!
Anyone have any tips or hints on how to get the final pieces to be found???

Reply

I have noticed a lot of posts about the bugs over the course of the 19 pages. Has anyone collected all of them to where they can post a picture showing the rest of us what they all look like?

I recently had to start over due to a no heir contingency and never completed the bugs to begin with because I was unsure what they all looked like.

Also, as most posts have indicated, when it rains the bugs come out. Well, even though I have the latest version, when the rains come, the only things that come out are the coins! I can collect coins left and right, but have not been able to collect more than a couple of bugs (red butterfly, some sort of worm, and the ladybug) through all of my trials (old one was 20 something worth of generations and $300 million in the bank). Any help would be appreciated as to what they look like.

Thanks!

Some of the little buggers are very hard to see, so you may just be missing them. I know there have been several posts to the comments that say some only come out at night, but I have found them all during the day.

There is a small gray dot under a parent or a kid, when trying to pick-up say two coins use the little gray dot like this: When the gray dot under a person it tells where the person is going to land ( the dot is only there when you pick the person up ) use the dot to make sure that to kids don't have a giggle party or play train.

I need help mixing the compound. I have already fixed the hose. I bought the compound, when I put one of my adults on it they just walk off doing something else.

Megan - Getting an adult to mix the compound is just trial and error, there is some very specific spot they need to be dropped on. I had to try many, many, times before I could get an adult to do it.

Reply

Once the hose is fixed and you have purchased and placed the compound, what you need to do is drop an adult on the green bucket, not the compound itself. Drop an adult (or someone over the age of 14) on the bucket and they will mix the compound.

Jen -

The smoking oven, the making a latte, and throwing out the fish are all random adult behaviors, you just have to watch for them. Usually you will only see the latte one in the morning, between 6 and 9:30 am.

Jacki -

Having the remote stuck there is tough. Sometimes if you drop a very young child (2 years old) on it, you can get them to pick it up. Otherwise, you can wait until you get the random maid service e-mail. If you pay for the maid service they clean up the house and return the remote as well.

Vanessa -

The gopher thing is a random behavior amongst the children, you just have to watch for it. Listen carefully while in the game, if you hear the kids making that sort of laugh/screaming sound (like they do when they're playing in the dirt) then check the yard quick, they may be chasing the gopher.

Here's a tip for fixing things like a clogged toilet and leaking showers if you don't have the right supplies:

I just wanted to say that this game is most definitely my favorite game. It took forever to get started, but now that I'm into it, I'm getting really sad that my kids will be gone soon. My oldest kid (a son, imagine that.. :) just left for college, and my next kid, a girl, she's 17, so she'll be leaving soon. Thankfully, though, my parents just had another kid, although they're both 43. I was able to adopt a kid even when my mom had a baby, so I don't know if that's known or not. :) Thanks for the hints.. very helpful!

I was also able to get paid for 1 item twice... double-dropping... thanks!!!!

If you drop a young child into the yard over and over eventually they will "dig a hole to china" If you wait till a hole appears and praise them it should give you the Gophers trophie. I have done this with 4 different families.

When you are trying to stop the water pressure so you can fix the hose you don't have to have someone get a drink. In one of my families the daughter brushed her teeth and it worked and in another I had one of them take a shower and it lowered the water pressure. You don't have to wait for them to get an actual drink as long as the water in the house is running.

The refresh the store by pressing R. Works for me frequently. I changed the clock on my computer a couple times to see if I could do it again and I could. I did it 4 times and I only changed the clock up an hour.

You don't have to close the game to change the clock you just have to take it off of full screen.

The funniest thing just happened. I hadn't gotten the "Kung Fu" trophy yet so I gave my guy the energy drink... Sure enough he did Kung Fu and I go the trophy. Well I didn't think about the fact that he was still hyper but I wanted to make him and his wife have their first baby. So they started to walk to the bedroom. He RAN. He was dancing, on the bed and gone before she even got on the bed! It was soo funny. He was out of the room before she got on the bed. But they did have a baby! So that's good. I wasn't expecting it and I just thought it was sooo funny, I'm sure it wont be as funny next time.

Everyone keep saying not too use the baby boost more than once. But does that mean don't use it on the same person twice or don't use it on the husband and the wife at the same time.

How long should I wait before giving her baby boost again?

Hello! If this question has been asked, I apologize in advance for asking... I tried searching through the posts here and came up empty. I just had a question in regards to some of the careers, and where my family members needed to be/go to work on them. In one family, I have a lyricist, the other a poet. The known work areas (kitchen, workshop and office), don't seem to work, which makes sense. Is there anywhere in particular that I need to place them? They are advancing when I'm not playing, but I wasn't sure if I could get them to work while I WAS playing. Thanks in advance!

You may need to keep dragging them to the work areas. For the lyricist, I honestly don't know where you should drag him or her, but I am assuming maybe the office? Anyways, the poet should work at the office. And nope, that question was not asked! Pleased to help you!

im wondering if there is a list of things that needs to be done to go further in the game because it seems to be coming a bit redundant... I've unlocked the shed, watered plants, cleaned some cobwebs, fixed the leaking sink, extinguished fires in the oven, fixed the leaking bath, extinguished the fire in the dryier, but still I am missing many puzzle parts and many bugs. For the workshop wall and the holes in the floors I tried many times and they try to fix it but it doesnt get fixed and then the compound becomes hard...
