Any tips or strategies?

[Post New]by Ariinya on Oct 18, 10 7:46 AM
I was just wondering if there was a good way to go about this game... how to assign jobs and the like. Do you take people off to do other jobs briefly (such as this one task where someone put all this JUNK on my nice clean beach!)? At first I had one person doing one of everything that was available - or that I knew was available.

Catching salmon, picking berries, doing tech points, tending crops, getting mushrooms.

What about the fields? Do you have only one person per field?

I had to move people around when I got a task that was heavy on one or two items.
Two people on milk when the cheese task came up, for instance.

Always have cooked food in your inventory. This way the workers feed themselves. I had 20 each of spring vegetable and cooked fish. They were easy to make and I could easily sell the extra for $. You will need lots of money to build things and get more workers.
Near the end have 3-4 people on wheat and 3-4 people on the water mill to get flour.
Be careful to have a slot open in inventory so that the workers don't recycle the items you are working so hard to get.
Leave the mushroom picker alone if he is picking, otherwise you can lose that mushroom. When workers are "looking" (eggs, mushrooms, garbage) pick them up and move them to the item. I once saw my mushroom picker walk right past a mushroom when he was "looking for mushroom". THAT was frustrating.

Thank you! I am stuck and was starting to wonder what else could happen, but now that I hear mention of wheat and fields and such I know that it's worth continuing. I cannot get past the "open the totem in the rain"---anybody remember how they did that?? Thanks!

I am stuck at the cooking task for the salads-I get one or two but there doesn't seem to be a way to collect alot of them to meet the goal.

Also, how do I meet the goal of getting another building and a worker?

To get another building or worker, go to the shop menu and purchase them - if you have the money, that is.

Once you've build the bridge across the river, wait for rain and then check the grass over there. There will be a sparkling area (a little below the banana tree), just drag one of your workers to the area while it's still sparkling.

Tips:
check your workers regularly, click through them and check health, mood and hunger

move your workers depending on the tasks you get, put a lot of people into producing

or finding things you need to accomplish a task, let other things rest for a while

always keep food stocked until you can build the diner (and build it as soon as you can), then rely on the diner for feeding your workers (selling food brings more money, usually, then you need to feed your workers)

I found it was worth it to keep one person on tech points the entire time and anytime a building was being built always the same one person...but along with others. When building huts - move all your workers to build at the same time so it gets done faster and then you can buy more workers to help with the previous tasks....

also... I also found that giving them coffee sure helps when I need a certain crop to be picked faster or a building built faster.

Spoilers I think. If it is sorry. Just trying to help.



debbiet5 & honeybee51:
I discovered the hard way about the feeding them thing. Do this whatever worker in your sights when you get that quest take them to the food storage and feed them. THEN you use your spacebar to go to the next worker. Grab him/her and feed them do that until they are all fed and you will be done. I believe it is to teach you about the spacebar shuffling through your workers.

Nitesha25:
I took my builder to the rock and he solved the problem. To open totems ALWAYS use your scientist.
