You need to make the potion to calm the sharks so you can fish

if you have children wandering around, use them to gather herbs! they're fast, and if you have a couple, you'll have all the herbs you need in a few seconds!

there is a new one. 1.04

need to switch the ingrediets for ridding of the sharks. 116 for nature and 226 for magic

I just remembered a help that I used in Villagers 2 to get more food and tech points using the kids. When you see a mushroom or a collectible, put the game on pause and drag and drop every kid onto that item. Most of the time more than one of them will pick it up and not only will it give you more food, but if you haven't collected that item yet, you'll collect it AND get tech points for it at the same time.

Has anyone started putting together a list of the different vials and boxs that are found? I have had a couple but forgot to write down what happens. Only one I remmeber is that someon saw a stranger working in the lab and just watched ... that tribe gained 1000 tech points.

In VV1 you could pause the game to gather up children to get several mushrooms. In VV2 you couldn't use that "trick". In VV3 I have been able to pause and get 2 children near the mushroom, ot on it, then I unpause and very quickly grab one child then the next and have been successful in getting 2 picks. Also as soon as I had found all of my alchemy fixes the 4 pots and the stirrer stick I was able to make the potion for light and springy to get the pink square at the top of the hill. This was the 5th puzzle I solved, not having any 2nd level techs.

What upgrade do you need to be able to do the clam part? My master builders won't pick it up right now.

I upgraded my leadership so my Chief can teach children. How do I get him to do that? If I drag him to a child it says he will only do it every 24 hours like the magic food. I haven't even had him do it once yet.

if you take your cheif to the amphitheatre and put him on the black podium he will start to lecture, it seems that all villagers not just the children come when you do this

Testing Testing.. None of my posts are showing up. It's been several hours.

1x Pitcher + 2x Orchid = Vial to Ocean (Fishing)

Anyone knows how do i actually take the diamond from the fire. It keeps on saying that diamond is hot.

drag a villager onto the waterfall that they usually drink from, the villager will carry a bowl of water to the firepit to cool it off.. you have to do it about 10 times (+ or - a few)

it doesnt work for me.. may there are additional task to be done.. is there?? any qualifications for the villager to achieved it??

HELP HOW DO I GET ANOTHER BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think you can. I think you have to wait for the children to age.

how do u get rid of the sharks

At the top of this page click the strategy or hints link it will walk you through it.

OK I have had more than one fire burn for more than 10 hours on normal speed. The help says that you will get the diamond even if you have it burn for 10 hours on fast speed. What am I doing wrong?

We're starving here...

I've lost 3 villagers to starvation even after harvesting honey & fruit. The fishing trick doesn't seem to happen fast enough in terms of buying levels. I've tried turning clock back 2 days. Bodies everywhere! Help! Can we get fruit out of the hanging trees before fixing the lift?

If you have selected your chief and have level 1 of Leadership...Drag your chief to the food hut and he will magically create food. He can only do this every 24 hours.

So, I always tried this in VV2 when I was in dire need of food: I pause the game and then look around for mushrooms to pop up (they still appear and disappear when the game is paused). Then I unpause the game, grab a kid to get the mushroom and then after he/she has put it in the food storage, I pause the game again. Doing this over and over allows you to accumulate food, albeit VERY slowly. But like I said - in dire need. Haven't tried this yet in VV3, but may be trying it very soon: 16K pts away from level 2 Nature and only 730 food.

Nope. You have to have the lift fixed. Have you had your chief magically create food? If not drop the chief on the food bin and he will create food every 24 hours. It's not alot but enough to not starve and die.

Hey - does anyone know how to get more seeds to plant trees? I only have the one that was given at the beginning of the game. Thanks in advance!

You have to have 3 builders repair the lift at the same time. Then, when it rains, have a villager stand on the lift. The bucket will fill with rain and it will lift the villager to knock down more seeds to plant. You only get 3 trees.

Where can I found the magic Herb?

Thank you

greeting Chelly

how can i download a v.1.03 ?? can anyone give me the website and url ~~i can't find it....thank you...!!

i have mixed the potion of 2 black orchid and i pictur plant and got an adult todrink it and go into the ocean but nothing happens HELP

2-black orchids, 1- picher plant-children are better, they fill the red jug and run to the ocean and poor it in. I only had 1- child to do this it worked!!

It takes Several tribes people to walk the potion to the ocean. As soon as you make the potion grab and drop several villagers onto the alchemy pot. Once you do this you will see them walking away carrying containers. They will walk straight to the ocean and pour it in. I would recommend 7-10 villagers, it only takes a few seconds so you can take them from whatever jobs they are doing. Good Luck

I solved the honey and they were harvesting it. However, they now refuse to harvest it. Does anyone know why? I have tried to re-light the fire near the honey and they won't do that either. Also, how do you get the fruit trees to bear?

The fruit trees take a long time to bear fruit. If you click on each individual tree, it will tell you how long until they mature. The villagers have only between 100-200 food percentage for a long time. I thought mine were going to starve and die :(

The honey runs out after a while. The tree will fruit in time, collect mushrooms to keep you going until then.

As soon as you find the 1st piece of fruit lying on the ground and plant it it can take 4 hours to mature, thats on 2x the speed.

What is milestone number 4


Go all the way to the right and have your villagers clear the leaves. A stone appears. You write the names of the dead on the stone. It's like one big head stone.

How can i get more food? my tree is out of fruit and my hive is dry:(

You need to banish the sharks i think.(Magic/nature level two and puzzle 3 done to do that) Then you can fish. The other way is repair the lift.Put a adept builder on the lift and they will repair it.(You need restoriation level 2)
I have a question: My adept builder has been building for at least
3/4 years. She is nearly master, but she has not progressed.(She
has been building constantly) Is that a bug and is there away to
repair it?

3 adept builder is required to repair the lift.

Has any body finished it yet? I have its sooooo fun!:)

found a crazy potion. Cactus + lily + rose =Blannesamagawa loomajoobamooga!!

My Chief died,now the new chief wont direct the statue move.Please help.

me too..i don't know why!

My Tribal Chief died, then got new one he wont direct work. Help!

how i do to rain??
i need to use the lift or they starv

Drop a villager on the lift. Take your tribal chief and 3 adept or Master farmers. Drag and drop them around the fire and they will do a rain dance. This also completes your lightning puzzle piece. This will only give you a small amount of food.

My master builder picked up the pearl and washed it and now it says my chief doesnt have the skills to finish the task....In puzzle 15 please help The chief wont pick it up to take to the clam any suggestions?

a master scientist has to polish it
