I have always been a fan of these games, but, like others that have been following the LDW games, I would like to see a change in scenery, maybe new people ideas, and definitely new challenges.

One problem that bothers me is when I download the free version, and get to the max population, it tells me I need to buy full version. Being the VV fan I am, I do. Why do you make me restart when I buy it??? I wish I could keep my free trial tribe with the fuLl version benefits. PLEASE HELP WITH THIS!!!

Best Game Ever!!!!!!! 😄😄😄😄

This is my all time FAVORITE game ever!!! Here is how u get the soap:
Pick three of the soapy smelling plant. Get salt water from the bowls by the waterfall, and then they will take it to the pot. The put a villager on the pile of rocks by the bridge that leads up to the research area. They will take the rock to the fire. U hav to wait a bit 4 it to turn red, but wen it dos, put the villager on it again and they will take it to the pot filled with salt water. You will get boiling water!!! ☺ Then drag a villager to the table next to the pot f they will start "cooking". when it starts making black smoke and the water goes away, put them bak on it and it will say "stacking soap".
Here's how u make cloth!
U might need more learning tech or something, I'm not sure, but here's how I did it! Drag a villager to the big fish bone and they will make a cutting tool. When they are done, drag them over to the pulpy vines by the firewood. They will cut the vines and put them on the cooking table. Then do the same thing u did for the soap for the salt water and rock. Next drag a villager to the cooking table again. I bet u can figure it out from there!😝😝😝
Now can somebody help me???😳

I don't now how to get the puzzles with the crab on it, the puzzle with the frog on it, or the puzzle with the butterfly on it!!!! HELP!!!!!!!!!! 😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢

I love this game!!!

Help needed REVISED to help

Ok so I only have 4 puzzles left and I am not sure how to complete them. One looks like a crab with grapes and apples next to it...the others are the very last three puzzles on the bottom row. Can anyone help me? I have tried so many different things to figure out the crab but nothing works. Tried so many different types of stew and nothing!!
Also, I LOVE this game and when I'm finished I will probably start all over again!!

Ok to get the butterflies, of course u have to clear all the debris and place the rock so the water flows down by the blackberries first. Down there u will see the blackberries, a palm tree and leaves coming out of the water. once those leaves turn green and the butterflies show up, go to them, then get a knife and cut the leaves, a green cloud will be on u...slowly go to the tree, do not lose the butterflies, move ur person on the tree until it ur person wipes the cloudy off on the tree then the butterflies will stay there.

As for the frogs, u have to wait for the rain to built up next to the stairs, it's where all the kids jump in the puddles...if u look closely u can see something moving, take as many of ur people as u can over to the puddles (adults only) and they will pick up the frogs and place them in the water in front of the tree.
