End of lite version?

So, I need to know if I'm at the end of the lite version. I have got the alchemy lab set up and I need a master builder to draw plans on the chalkboard. Where I am in the game you need plans to progress further. However because of a population limit or something I can't build more than one hut and one hut is not enough to turn someone in to a master builder. My adept builder's skill bar shows that he's almost a master though but his bar hasn't moved for two weeks.
Is the lite version over? If not, how do I make my builder a master? If you can help labor title: Master Builder help.

find five pitchers and drag an adult on them. They will bring them to the alchemy. One pitcher is located under the bath, one where the kids go on the left of the alchemy, one in the dirt near the tree,.
collect dry wood and dry grass. Add wood to make it last longer
Lotus, black orchid, tiger Lilly= to feel light and jumpy , then place them under pink key located in the dirt area on top of ledge
Must have master builder and completed alchemy. Drag builder to chalkboard and they will draw a plan, put them on bath and they will start to build . Any builder can work on te bath once master makes plans
use cactus, cactus, lotus
Rose, rose, cactus
pitcher (unlocks at level two of nature, appears on left of lab where the kids go), black orchid, black orchid
plant the seed for a tree that appears in the dirt, once every 24 hrs drag chief to food bin and he will creat 160 food magically
To get rid of, have the person take a drink then eat

More hints to come. Hope this helps:)

Awesome! And some comments...

Ok so, I love this game! It's pretty cool. But, there are some questions and comments I have.....

1. Where is the last pot for alchemy? I have a master scientist that is repairing it but I can't find the last pot btw, the other pots are up on the hill by the green thing where the chief stands, by the beach, where the kids use the bath room, and by the huge mud/dirt patch.

2. If your villagers are hungry, calm the bees and/or plant the seed and you will get a fruit bearing plant.

3. This is funny. I have a 2 yr old chief, and she runs around doing "kid stuff" but it says she is "contemplating tribe".😋

4. My suggestion to the makers is to do island events more, and to give more hints on how to advance the civilization later in the game. Also that nursing mothers can work

5. Question. What do kids that are apprentices do? I have a child apprentice farmer, but she just runs around and doesn't work when I set her to a farming task.

Peace out!✌️
