**CAUTION: SPOILER ALERT!**

General Tips:
• Virtual Families is a real-time game; meaning the game is progressing even when you quit the game. Pause the game by pressing the space bar or by choosing the pause option under the options menu.
The time in the game coincides with your time. If it's 8 AM your time it's 8 AM game time unless you select the "reverse day/night" option under the options menu. If you reverse the day/night schedule; 8 AM your time will be 8 PM game time.
You can leave your little friends alone for a couple of days usually without too many detrimental issues as long as there is enough food in the refrigerator. Should you need to abandon the game longer than 2 days; it's best to pause the game.
Praising too much cause your people to run away and say STOP NAGGING.
Let your little friends sleep on their own for a full continuous 6-8 hours at night by quitting and exiting the game for 6-8 continuous hours.
You can cycle through some of the behavior options for your little friends by selecting them and then releasing them until you receive the behavior/action you're looking for.
Your adult friends have to have a child in order for the game to continue...the game ends when there is no next generation to pass the house and bank account to.
• Parents decide when it's not too soon for a 2 child.
If you're playing more than one family at a time in the game, your little friends must complete their actions for those actions to take effect before switching to a different family. If your family is in the middle of sitting down to meal and you switch to a different family or exit the game... the family sitting down to a meal will not increase their "fed" level.
Virtual Families is a non-linear game; meaning most of the goals don't have to be completed in a specific order.
It's recommended to not leave your family without your direction until the house and weeds are picked up; they have plenty of food in the refrigerator and the adults have completed several work cycles.
You can't have twins/triplets until after your 1st child is born.

Your first adoptee:
There are many people to choose from for adoption. Once you pass a possible adoptee/candidate by choosing the "try again" button, he/she will no longer be a possible candidate to adopt. The adoptee candidates do not recycle.
Each adoptee will be between 20 and 30 years old. It's best to choose a candidate that is between 20 and 27 years old for your first adoptee.
Each adoptee already has a job making $15 - $105 a day. You may want to adopt a candidate with a high daily salary initially of $70 or more per day initially. The candidates will either be a beginner or novice at their jobs.
Each adoptee will also have some money in the bank $15 - $200. An adoptee candidate that has $200 or more in the bank is considered rich. When choosing your first adoptee for your first generation it's best for your adoptee to have at least $100 in the bank.
Each adoptee candidate will have one of the following desires for children. An adoptee that has a "No Way" desire for children can still have children with enough persistence.
1. Definitely
2. Would be nice
3. Maybe
4. Not Really
5. No way
• Each candidate may also have some likes and dislikes. The likes and dislikes slightly impact the game when a dislike involves his/her job. Such as your adoptee or candidate dislikes computers but has a job that requires using the computer. You may find it more difficult for this adoptee/candidate to work at his job. The likes and dislikes may also have a very slight impact on choosing a spouse for that adoptee/candidate. You can purchase a desensitization kit from the store when available to cure a random dislike when used on an adoptee. Should you want your adoptee to have a like or dislike, you can purchase the encyclopedias at the store and a random like or dislike will appear.

Your first home:
Have your adoptee pick up all the wrappers as the cleanliness of the house greatly impacts their happiness. A pop-up window will appear after a while stating the house is free of debris and dirt when all wrappers and the TV remote is picked up...you'll receive the Spring Cleaning Trophy.
Have your adoptee pick all the weeds in the yard as this also greatly impacts their happiness. Some weeds may be difficult to see...so look closely. You will receive a pop-up window stating the yard is free of weeds and you'll receive the Weed Obliterator trophy. Pick up any random collectables in the yard. The adoptee will place them in the Collections Chest.
• It is important to keep the house picked up to keep your families happiness up.
It is equally important to keep the weeds pulled as this also has influence on your family's happiness. You will also avoid paying fines for having weeds in your yard. And who knows...your family might receive a financial reward for having a nice yard!


Getting Married:
You'll probably receive an email alert shortly after your new adoptee enters the house. Your adoptee will have an unorthodox marriage (email) proposal without any romance. The adoptee may choose to get married or wait for another proposal later. Getting married has a HUGE positive impact on their happiness.
If you choose to marry someone with less than $100 in the bank you marry for love. If you choose to marry someone with $200 in the bank, you marry for money.
Marriage proposals will become more infrequent as time passes...so you may want to take this into consideration before rejecting a proposal.

• After the doorknob is on the shed, transfer one of your friends to the welcome doormat outside the front door where they will pick up a key and open the shed door.
• The shed contains fire extinguishers and watering cans.
• The fire extinguishers are used to put out oven and clothes dryer fires.
• The watering cans are used to water the flower boxes after the leaking hose has been repaired.

Repairing the Cracks in the Floors:
Purchase a floor repair kit from the store.
• Place a floor repair kit over one of the cracks in the floor; the repair kit will remain on the floor next to the crack until the crack is repaired.
• Place one of your adult friends on the crack where you placed the floor repair kit.
• Continue to place your friend over the crack until the repair is completed; the crack will be gone and the floor repair kit will disappear when crack is repaired.
• You'll need to purchase a minimum of 3 floor repair kits. One for each crack.
• Repeat the steps above for each floor crack.
• Additional floor repairs may need to be purchased to repair the floors again if your friends suffer an earthquake.

Fixing the Leaky Hose:
Purchase the all-American repair product...duct tape.
• Place duct tape near the leaky hose at the back of the house.

• Have one of your friends lower the water pressure in the house by washing hands, getting a drink, using the toilet or taking shower.
• Take an adult friend and place them on top of the hose at the back of the house. Your little friend will repair the leaky hose while the water pressure is lowered.

Oven Fires:
Place an adult or a child 14 or older in front of the burning oven (there will be smoke emitting from the stove) so they take notice of the fire. The action bar will indicate your friend is aware of the fire.

STORE:
The Home Improvements increase your family's happiness.
The Career Room Upgrades increase your family's happiness and boost the salaries if the upgraded room matches their job; they also advance in their careers faster.
The Varied Items change every 4 hours and can be returned if not used:
1. Delicious and Various Candy: good for praising
2. Salty candy: good for scolding
3. Energy Drink: gives the selected family member an energy boost.
4. Mega Chamomile extract: lowers the energy level of a selected family member. Best used when a family member is weak, it will help them to rest so they may recuperate a little faster.
5. Pets (dog, cat, and turtle): they really don't do much.
6. Encyclopedia: Will give the selected family member a random or changed like or dislike since they have accumulated more knowledge.
7. Desensitization Kit: Changes a random like or dislike of the selected family member.
8. Professional Magazines: Increases the selected family member's job rating and gives them an immediate monetary bonus if the magazine matches their profession.
9. Children's Books: Increases happiness and builds a stronger parent-child bond. Also puts children to sleep at bedtime.
10. Fragrances: Just makes your little friend smell better and you get a trophy if you purchase 2 and use them on your little people.
11. Fruit: Will make a weak person slightly stronger; also good for praising.
12. Clothes: Gives the selected family member a different outfit to wear if it's different than the one they currently have.
13. Sunscreen: keeps them from getting burned if they're in the pool too long or lying in the hammock too long. Since they don't tend to stay in either place very long, it really isn't needed.
14. Bottled weather: the bottled rain will make it rain, the bottled sunshine will make the sun shine used to receive some trophies.
15. Anti-spam software: your family will no longer receive spam emails.
16. DVD's: Increases happiness and builds stronger family bonds.
17. Anti-bacterial hand gel: helps keep family members from becoming ill and increases their hygiene if they're not "not feeling so fresh".
18. Towelette: Freshens your not "not feeling so fresh" family member.

ILLNESSES AND MEDICINES:
Your little friends are bound to become ill from time to time; it's best to cure the illnesses as soon as you notice them as a prolonged illness will make your little friends weak and may spread the illness to other members of the family.
All medications are available at all times in the store.
Each medication is for one dose for the selected family member.
1. Sore Throat - use the throat lozenges.
2. Upset Stomach - use the pink peptic syrup.
3. Headache - use the anti-inflammatory pill in the white bottle w/green label.
4. Coughing - use the Antitussive syrup in the brown bottle.
5. Itching - use the cortisone cream in the white tube.
6. Sneezes - use the antihistamine in the white bottle.
7. Hiccups - have your friend take a drink from the kitchen or bathroom sink.
8. Doctor Consultation - will tell you if your little friend via email if he/she has an infection.
9. Infections and persistent illnesses - cure them with the penicillin...if that doesn't work within about an hour try the Vancomycin. These antibiotics will tire your friend.
10. Infertile couple - use the baby boost one time only on the family member that needs the baby boost...using the baby boost more than once on the same family member will cause the infertility to worsen instead of improve.

COLLECTIBLES:
There are 4 collectible categories with 12 items in each category to collect. All collectibles are randomly placed outside at different times throughout the game:
1. Picture Pieces: are found to the left of the house behind the workshop and between the shed and the workshop. These are usually rare pieces.
2. Old Coins: Some are rare and some are not.
3. Bugs: Appear after if has rained or while it's raining. Just because it's rained or is raining doesn't always mean there will be a bug. The bugs can be difficult to see in the lawn. Most bugs are rare.
4. Nuts and Twigs: Some are rare and some aren't.
• There is usually a chiming sound when a collectible is placed in the yard.
• Duplicate collectables can be sold on-line.
• Too double the on-line payment of a collectible- Place a family member on the collectible...press the space bar to pause the game as the family member is bending down...place another family member on the collectible...press the space bar again to resume the game. Both family members will pick up the collectible (magic-that makes 2 collectables in one!) and sell it on-line. This may take some practice. For a real challenge try tripling the amount by placing 3 family members on a coin.

The collectables only need to be picked up to be put into the collection or to receive payment. Your friends don't actually have to sell them on line or put them in the collection chest. This comes in handy when there are more than one in the yard at a time.
Profession and Careers:
Progress: gives a red bar indicating when your adult will receive their next promotion and salary increase. Each level progression in your adult's career will take longer to obtain.
Your adult friends will work in proportion to the amount you have them work while playing the game when your not playing the game, except when their sleeping, in proportion to the amount you have them work while playing the game.
Magazines from the store will give them a progress career boost along with an immediate bonus if the magazine matches their career station.
It can be challenging to get your adult friends to work initially. Place an adult friend on their career station...sometimes they'll shake their head and say "no". Place them back on their station and praise them with the hand, sweet candy (not salty) or fruit from the Varied Items department in the store.

Happiness:
• Gives a blue bar indicating how happy your family member is. The longer the blue bar, the happier they are. The happiness level can range from depressed to elated.
What makes your friends happy:
1. Food in the refrigerator.
2. A house that is picked up with no wrappers, socks or TV remote on the floor.
3. The yard is free from weeds.
4. Money in the bank.
5. Having children.
6. There is a distinct correlation between the health of the family members and their happiness. If they're healthy they're happier.
7. House upgrades.
8. Career promotions and making money.
9. Selling collectables on line.
Should one of your friends become depressed, help them out of their funk by praising them often for any positive behavior you desire; even if it is picking up a collectable, purchase an inexpensive upgrade if possible and defiantly put food on the table to store in the refrigerator. Time will be the best healer for a depressed friend. Try not to scold a depressed family member.

HAVING BABIES AND NURSING MOTHERS:
Your adult little friends need to have a baby naturally or through adoption (random chance card given in game) to pass the house onto the next generation in order for the game to continue. Should your adult friends not have a baby the game will end with that generation.
All adults can have children naturally or through adoption even if their desire for children is "no way"...it may take more persistence.
The adult family members can generally be persuaded to attempt to have a child by placing them together. Should they argue...try again...and again...and again...they will usually be persuaded to attempt to have a child.
When your little friends have attempted to have a baby, you'll know immediately if they have been successful as the mother will be carrying a baby.
There are 3 times in the game when your little friends can not have children.
1. When your mother is nursing a baby, your adult friends can not have another child until the mother is no longer nursing.
2. Your little friends have to wait awhile to try to have a baby when they have recently attempted to have a child was unsuccessful.
3. When your adults are too old to have children at around age 50. As your adult friends age, it becomes increasingly more difficult for them to have a child.
Use the baby boost medication only one time on an adult to assist in baby making if they have been unsuccessful for a year or two. Using the baby boost more than once on an adult will decrease their chances of having a baby.
Nursing mothers can not work at their jobs; they are still receiving their daily income while nursing. They can receive additional income by selling duplicate collectables on line or by reading a professional magazine in their career field while nursing.
Mothers nurse until the child is 2 years old or about 4 hours of game play.
Nursing mothers can prepare meals; pick up wrappers, socks and weeds along with any other household chores they initiate.
Nursing mothers can extinguish fires and repair leaking sinks and clogged showers or toilets.
Nursing mothers will not make any of the house repairs.
The children will start having homework at age 14.
When children turn 14 they can do all the adult tasks except work and make babies.
Your children will leave around age 18 and will not return unless you choose them as the predecessor to inherit the house and bank account at which time they will be 20 or older.

THE NEXT GENERATION:
Most of your little friends will pass away on the bed in their 60's.
When one of your friends passes away, everyone in the house will go through a grieving process. You can gradually up their happiness by purchasing groceries or purchasing house upgrades from the store. Praising them with the hand, good candy and fruit from the Varied Items department of the store will also increase their happiness.
When one of your adult friends passes away, you have 2 options.
Keep playing the game with the people that remain in the house. Children will be able to survive if you have enough money for food and medicine. The children will not be as happy though.
You can start the New Generation by selecting the family tab and selecting the New Generation button. Choose 1 child that you'd like to inherit the house and the money in the bank account. A small child that is still at home will be an adult under the family tab. All the children will be adults whether adopted or natural birth will be in their 20's.

If your child is offered a vacation or business trip, they will be gone forever. However, you can still pick them for your next generation.

Another way for money: Set your computer clock back 2 years, go into VF and have your peeps do a couple things like take out the trash, swim in the pool, ect. Exit and set your clock back to the current date, you should now have 1,000,000. **CAUTION!!! THIS CAN KILL YOUR FAMILY, MAKE THEM DEPRESSED, ECT! You will also have A LOT of wrappers,socks,dirt smudges, and weeds.**

Deliveries: If they charge you a small amount, it will be paintings or the cushions for a discount. If they are not charging you anything and only shows up, the box is full of ants and will empty the fridge. If the Girl Scouts try to sell you something, take it. You will get 100 food free in your fridge.

You can choose your favorite KID to be your next generation, just give him 2 o 3 encyclopedias, and if you want him to bee a Cook, for instance you can start giving him the Cooking books after the encyclopedias So, when you start the new family, he will not only be a cook, he will be in level 6 in less than 24 hours. If you don`t give him an specific book he will become a “Rocket Scientists” earning 105- Novice.

Don’t buy more food than necessary they only spend about 250 per day. (Cooks spend more)

Once they reach level 8 Keep on giving them the books and you can make someone do as much as $1000 per day.

When they are old, in their final week make them only WORK !!! since this is when they earn more !!! this is the best moment to save for the 3rd Levels!!!

If some students come to your house and ask if they can use your kitchen, they make a mess, use all your food, leave a meal on the table.

After 4 hours, if your store supplies have not changed, press "R" and they will change.

Another way to get money: Leave your family with plenty of food (1000 or above is best) and move your time ahead a few days. Open the game and your family should be aged (possible downside) but they should have a lot of money. Be sure to close the game and change the time back.

If your 1st spouse dies, you should get marriage proposals for a second marriage. But if your adults are over 60, you can't have children.
