Here To Help

So I heard that many of you are having some trouble. I completed the game so if you need help just ask. 1. Many of you need a different food source, and there are 2 common ones. But first you will need a level 2 in construction. Once purchased drag adults on top of the rocks. They will take some time to clear the debris so be patient. Once the rocks are cleared heat up some rocks on fire and place in pit. Cover with banana leaves from the tree by the berry bush. 2. You can also fish but I you will need to fix the piers and get level 2 science. So when you build your clothing, hut you can make the stew for cloth. Get salt water with those dishes by the water fall or once dry waterfall. Cut pulpy vines which are by the firewood. Heat up rock. Dump in water. Have one of your people cook it then lay the cloth on rock and pound. You have created fishing nets your people will just have to build them. Hope this helped:)


Things I need HELP with:
How do you finish waterfall puzzle i cleared all the debris but then what. Also when you drop villager onto the trees it says fruit needs to be cooked so i cleared the stones haeted them on the fire and placed the on the box but still says i need to cook the fruit.?
Things i can HELP YOU with:
I you dont want it to restart hit cancel when it comes up and to keep your villagers alive for 1 day vy theirsekves make sure you have over 100 food and a stedy sorce ( not black berrys they run ouy) and a adept healer and 2 adept farmers to keep the village going check at least every 2 days recomended 3 every day. Wiman can have childeren as long as it says HEALTHEY at top but fertality decreses after 50 snd reaserch MEDICNE to increase fertility rates. Also will not let you have childern if you have under 50 FOOD. Tip if you put fire wood on the fire while its still burning it will come back as 9 hours plus howerver longer it had to burn and if u put dry grass to it goes to 18

Helpful hints part 2

CUT VINES: you have to make tools ( by placing a person on the fish bones, they'll do the rest -bring to fire etc). Then if you're doing it to make cloth, you have to be on level 2 of building so you have the cloth hut. Then get a bowl of salt water and heat it up with rock, then place person on vines, they should go grab a tool and then cut it and add to stew. Look at other reviews for further explanation about cloth.

WATER FLOW: first you have to keep putting someone on the blocked stream and making sure they clear it. Then you need someone who is adept in building and research to go to the beach the north part on the sand there is a flat rock shaped like a "C". Put person on it, it should say keystone. Drop them on it, and they'll do the rest to make h2o flow.

PURE BODY : grab someone and put them on the soap( they will add it to the river & water will get bubbly) then drop someone inside it. When they come out, they will have white circles around them. They have pure bodies. You can put more than 1 person in at a time.

FAST CRAB: get two kids and place them on the crab, it'll "distract it" and then place an adult on the grab an they should grab it.
