Can we do anything with the big yellow gift boxes they keep putting in the chest at the foot of the bed? Seems they do this whenever a new baby comes.

For everyone who still uses the money/aging cheat, YOU SHOULD NOT MESS WITH YOUR COMPUTER CLOCK! Not only does it mess up your game, but all of your date and time related programs, if you really want money, don't be lazy and just wait for your people to make it!

I am strongly with grinnyp on this :D

I bought the imported candy and the mom got super sick and she threw up and wont stop. What do i do?

Reply

Anna -

I just figured out, that the imported candy can be anything from a

baby boost, to a laxitive, to a sleeping pill, and something that makes you sick, (many, many more too)

If they get sick, just buy a doctor consultation, the doctor will know what to do.

I think I posted this, but it was deleted or something, anyways, I found two funny easter egg/cheats, The first:

If one of your little people is reading email, before the screen comes up, give them a (tasty) candy. Their action will be: "Unknown string id!!!"

The second:

If you have a pregnant woman, and a man, have the woman try to repair a floor, keep trying over, and over. Then, while she is shaking her head, pause the game, make the husband fix the floor, and (This does not always work) she will repair it!

hi, there are alot of comments! I just read some of them and i have 2 things i want to share with you guys. About 2 of my families have SOOOO much money! it goes off the bar thing for money. its so cool. I have all the upgrades for kitchen, office, and workshop and the pinball machine and all the rest. now all my little people dont need to work! All I did was get one of my generations to have one kid and then make them work work work untill they finnally passed away. I fed them and stuff but when they worked i praised them so much all they did was work no breaks or anything. So ya, that how i did it. Also a strange thing happened. One of my people was lying in his bed waving to me and i clicked on him and dragged him and he lived. he stopped dying! It was really weird! Okay I write wayyyy to much! Thanks for reading my comment!

Do you know if there's a limit to marriage proposals? I got 3, but all of them said "no way" to kids, so I refused them. Now I don't know if I'll get any more. It's definitely affecting Sophesse's mood. Help?
And by the way, in regard to the game, I actually like being able to focus on the one person. It adds something the VV games didn't have, though those are great too. It may seem kind of like a bad version of Sims, but it's kind of a Virtual Villagers version. Does that make sense?

JIGuest-

Yes, it has worked for me numerous times. It gave one of my families EVERY upgrade/household item there is.

Look here for how to make money with this cheat:

Buy as many baby boosts as you can, (Using the cheat) and then sell them, and repeat if you like. Since they're 500$ each, you can get rich quick. I've made oodles of cash with it :)

Hope it helps you make money without using the computer clock

People always argue, and sometimes women just don't have kids, it can take time, if they don't have a kid by their 3rd try, give the woman some baby boost. Sometimes if you give the woman a doctor consultation it will say that you may need some baby boost if you want kids

P.S. the fridge had 687 food.

Virtual Villager Lover -

687 food won't make them starve, but you will need to buy more food, I suggest using the cheat,

Where you click the item you want, but cant afford (Baby boost) and click ok, then bring it up again, and Alt F4 the game

once you go back into the game, you should have it (Baby boost) then just sell it, 500 easy cash. And about the "very weak" problem, you just need to give them some candy or fruit, and make them happier is all. Also give them energy drinks

Tape and floor kits are cheap...grab them right away, no matter how little cash you have (unless you're starving) they will show up....even if it takes afew generations. One thing you can do is buy the other stuff, to leave blanks at the store...then after a couple of hours, it is replaced

Hey,
I was just wondering about another cheat I saw on two sites when I googled "virtual villages + bushes" and apparently there's a cheat where you can move items from one family to another.
I know this would be very VERY helpful for thoose who have zero patience and want items from the shop to refresh sooner.

The sites say if you move to the left bottom corner of the screen and click about the blue box (where your character face would be) then everything moves without clicking and draging, then you can drag items into the bushes go onto another family and drag them out! Sorry this is so long but if anyone knows about this please help because I cant find the spot their talking about, try it and see if it works for you, if it does SHARE!!

SORRY THIS SO LONG!!!!

To win the lottery, you have to wait for the program to notify you.......by e-mail or by an announcement when you turn on the game. You don't actually go out and buy a ticket.
Sam, that doorknob problem seems to be a re-occurring complaint from players with the hand-held versions. It's supposed to be in the sandbox.

Thank you Bradis! I was looking for a ticket in the store and wondered why they'd never show up.
Anyway I have another question! How do you make a fire in the oven? It happened a couple of times already that there was a fire in the laundry room, but never in the kitchen. In also tried to make the dad cook and then stopped him halfway, but the oven won't start a fire!

Oh and anyway, I don't know if it's already somewhere but I've discovered that if you click a bit up "Detail" button, some hints pop up. It's a little spot over the "e" of detail.

Energy Levels

When your little person is exhausted they may take naps on their own or go to bed, and although you will put them to bed they will only do so for 5 to 10 minutes, like previously stated you can buy energy drinks. But if you cant get energy drinks you will have to let they game play on for 6 to 8 hours since the game runs on real time. The only way it will work is if you have turned your game off not while it is still up and running. Do not pause and make sure you have plenty of food

If you drop a parent on a small child this will tickle the child and the child will giggle. When you buy the story books from the store give them to the parent or an older sibling. Then drop the parent on one of the younger children(this might take more than one click)until it says telling a story. The younger child or children will run to the living room and sit on the floor to listen to the story. p.s.this must be a glitch. If the parent tries to tickle a child of the opposit sex after he turns 18,this will result in an embrace and they will procede to try to make a baby. If the parent tries to tickle the same sex at 18, the parent and child will argue.

I have read a few posts about the pets. A lot of people were dissappointed that you can not interact with them. I have also noticed you can not directly interact with pets however on one of my files I have a single woman and she has a cat. I have noticed that the cat will follow her for example if she is in in the kitchen preparing a meal the cat will walk next to her wherever she goes and when she stops moving the cat sits next to her feet. Also when she is working (she works in the office) the cat will sit next to her feet as she works and follow her to the bookcase and back. Do all the pets do this or just the cat?

The dog is very much more like a realistic dog; it will beg while you eat, jump up on your lap while you are napping, follow you around.....I've even seen it jump on the bed during the 'rose petal fest'. My dog must be about 2,000 years old by now (I have been going through generation after generation trying to get the last 4 trophies......there have been 3 collectible bugs that I've never seen, even on 3 different profiles after dozens of generations. One generation has almost $3 million. Also, I'm still waiting to win a lottery.)

There are occasionally energy drinks in the store which can boost exhaustion. If those are not available you need to put your people down for a nap or to sleep. Once they go to sleep, quit out of the game for a couple of hours. If you stay in the game they won't stay asleep long enough.

Jess -

I presume you are talking about the cracks in the floor? There is a floor repair kit that randomly shows up in the market, you need to buy one when it comes up, then use it on one of the cracks. Once the floor repair kit is down keep dropping your people on the crack until the crack is repaired and the kit is gone.

Bella -

If your child goes to Europe (or Japan), they will not be coming back until the parents die, then you will see them as possible next generations.

You can get a million dollars quickly by fowarding the time on your computer, up to about 10 years! I got 4million actually for doing this. Your house is going to be a mess though and the people are most likely going to be very sick and miserable because it's going to seem like you have not checked on them in 10 years but you can nurse them back to health. I suppose it is up to you though if you want to take the risk.

Bradis-
Messing with the time is bad for your "little friends" as sasha said "Your house is going to be a mess...the people are most likely going to be very sick and miserable because it's going to seem like you have not checked on them"

Babygurrl:)-

Above, if you go to "Holes in the Floor" under "Repairs and Household" it says:
"1. Purchase floor repair kit in the store (good for only one repair each).
2. Click it beside one of the holes in the floor.
3. Drop an adult on the hole to begin repairs.
4. Note: This is a long-term project and takes awhile to complete."...So you pretty much have to wait for kits in the in total you will need 3 though I have heard that earthquakes can happen and cause cracks.

Amber-

Once when I was playing virtual villagers I accidentally made a person drop a pot or something and it disappeared. It reappeared where they picked it up from after I closed and reopened the game. If that is not the problem, are you sure you know what it looks like/what you're looking for?

flapjack whichsand-

You can restock that section by pressing R but that only works if the section has not restocked in the last 4 hours like it is supposed to. If you use more then one baby boost on a single person it can have the reverse effect and make it harder or even impossible for them to have more kids.

There is no limit to generations. the parents' stats won't go away still? Weird. They are dead? Hmmm....you've only got 10 years to reproduce (what an ugly thought in real life!), so, you either have to hope for an adoption, or kill off the parents' stats to initiate a proposal letter.

Okay I don't know if anyone has already posted this but having twins or triplets is not random!!!

Remember the tip the more in common a couple has the more likely they will have children? Well that's the secret. The parents both have to want kids definitely and have similar careers. (Working in the same area) The best is to have excatly the same job.
Oh and when it's not working the first time remember the task-manager trick and try it a few times! All my five families had triplets.

Good Luck!

Mammutland,

....but how can you get them with the same job? ....That is one of the 3 trophies I can't get; there are over 50 careers and the odds of getting the same one on a marriage proposal are against you heavily.

Bradis-

Yea thats true, the time cheat can help for the cleaning trophies and others but I hope people don't think it's needed to earn enough money for the family to survive. When it comes to bugs, you have to be there to collect so if you speed up time won't that make you miss some of the collectibles.

Mammutland-

Both parents don't have to definitely want kids it's probably a better chance for triples of they do though. For the generation that had triples the mom said no way to kids and I don't remember for sure but I'm pretty sure the dad wasn't a definitely on kids. I've been keeping track of the kids who i adopted and pass the home on to (age, career, desire for kids, and salary) but not the spouses (till now).

I always use the "Virtual Families Careers and Salaries" list to help me decide on which child to adopt.
