Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 05/16/18 07:54 PM

Hi, everyone!

We're pleased to let everyone know that the Chapter 2 update for VVO2 is rolling out to players now! It should be reaching all players on Google Play soon, and on the App Store for iOS players after Apple approves it for release.

We hope everyone enjoys this new chapter and the challenges of all-new puzzles!

So, has it been approved by Apple by now? I'm playing on iOS and see no update as yet.

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 05/18/18 03:11 PM

Yes, it was approved yesterday. It takes time for Apple to roll it out to every region. Sometimes you need to refresh the updates list on your device to see it. If you're running iOS 11, go to the updates page on the App Store and pull down, then release the screen to force a refresh. That's a quick and effective way to see all available updates for your device.

Many android users have not received the update including me. We are in the USA does that matter.

I did some checking and learned that this update is being rolled out a bit more slowly than previous updates, since it has so much new content. That way, if there are any major issues that we didn't catch during testing, we can fix them quickly, before everyone who plays the game experiences them.

It shouldn't be too long before it's rolled out to everyone, and we appreciate everyone's patience.

I got my update today. Is there somewhere that explains a step by step what to do.

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 05/25/18 04:01 PM

I don't know of a walkthrough, but basically you just solve the puzzles (like you did on the first chapter). There are new tech levels and resources, along with the new puzzles.

I have had V 2.0.3 from iOs for several days now.

For whatever reason the update failed to show up for me. Had to delete and redownload, but it's working now. smile

Is there going to be anything else after chapter 2, I've finished chapter 2 and just wanted to know if I should hang on or if that is it, it's getting pretty boring now with nothing to do.

Hi JacqyB! There have been some reports of an issue on the VVO2 Facebook Page, along with a reply that says:
Quote:
Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

We're aware of this outage and are working with our service providers to resolve it as quickly as possible. While we don't have an estimated time of resolution, we appreciate your patience while we work with them on this and encourage you to check back on your game later today.

My game is not having any issues connecting. Perhaps yours is fine now. smile

I love playing all the VV games, but the VV Origins game is just to expensive for me to keep up with. None of the others required anything more then the cost of the game. I will not be playing this game anymore. It takes too long to get tech points and gain lava stones.

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 01/31/19 06:43 PM

I'm playing VVO2 on my pc laptop. I purchased through Big Fish Games. I'm assuming, since I have the puzzles for both Chapter 1 AND Chapter 2, that I received both chapters when I purchased the game.

I just finished the last puzzle on Chapter 1. How do I open Chapter 2?

never mind, I'm on chapter 2 now...

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 02/06/19 07:17 PM

Do updates have any impact on BigFish purchased versions?
Posted by: KeeganAdministrator

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 02/07/19 08:41 PM

The paid versions of the game (including the Big Fish Games version) are the most up-to-date versions in terms of content, containing all the same puzzles as the free-to-play versions. If there are updates to the paid versions, they will be distributed by the third parties they were purchased from.

If you have any technical questions about the game, please forward them to Big Fish Games' support team for resolution.

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 02/10/19 11:02 PM

Is there another third party vendor for your games (PC or Windows Tablet)? BigFish issues a code for a free game rather than resolve problems. I just got lucky VV Origins 2 had come out on a day when another BigFish game crashed. If I could purchase it anywhere else, I still would and I only have 2 or 3 puzzles left in Chapter 2.

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 02/11/19 03:48 PM

Keegan posted some other places to get the PC version in another thread. Maybe that will help you?
Posted by: RudyToo

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 02/11/19 08:16 PM

The other pc versions are "free" so you have to buy lava stones and other items, I bought my game on a half price sale day so I consider it a good value even with a couple minor glitches that don't effect the overall game play to much, I think in the long run it is better to buy the game than to pour money into a freebie. If there are any new VV games coming in the future I hope they are made for the pc player to buy like the great older VV games, it seems the devs and game sites are catering to the facebook crowd who only play free games on mobile devices and us pc players who prefer to buy a good quality game are getting the short end of the stick. I don't like this trend in gaming, I don't have a facebook account and never will.

BigFish put out an update yesterday to fix the collection/mausoleum freeze issue.

Were frogs and heron omitted from the BigFish PC version? If so, is it possible they will be in a future update?

Hi I am playing the PC version of VV origins 2. I am almost done with the game but there are still puzzles that I haven't been able to start. I am about to get rid of the kracken, I have level three of everything. How do I get to chapter 2 puzzles? I don't want to lose all my progress eek eek frown
Posted by: Thiablue

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 02/23/19 04:07 PM

I've maxed out skills, built all buildings and completed all puzzles through chapter 2. I don't want to quit. I'm now making all craft combinations so that everything will be filled.

Is there hope for another update for the PC (BigFish) version? Love this game and the series. Going to keep going until I've outfitted my people in the pricey full set outfits...just for kicks.

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 02/23/19 04:13 PM

Hello kir--Once you defeat the Kraken, the volcano erupts and you are in chapter 2. New skill levels, new puzzles, new things to find and craft. Hang on and enjoy the ride!

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 02/24/19 06:16 PM

Has there been any complaints about the cursor not working to move the people around or to move from one side to the other of the village? I got on today and I can click on the "x" but can no longer maneuver around the village? I put new batteries in my mouse, rebooted my computer, pulled the mouse fob out and put it back in. Still can't move???? Help!

What version of the game are you playing? If it is the free to play it could be a server issue, if it's BF version one of the things they would tell people is to clear their browsing history, you might also try going into the game settings and change the resolution.

Thanks so much Rudy. I will try those and see if it helps!

SPOILER ALERT!
Rudy, I got to the last piece of glass (red glass). Made it and now no one will pick it up! Does it have to be a special kind of person to get it? After it took so much time to make the thing, now I can't use it? HELP!

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 02/28/19 07:19 AM

I used my leader to place the glass.

I've finish chapter 1, but the volcano does not explode, so I can't do chapter 2

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 03/04/19 08:06 PM

I can't even finish chapter 1. I'm stuck. I have alot of villagers running around with a light bulb above their head but it's not helping me.

I'm playing the BF version, and no heron but I did get frogs which the kids will take care of if you drop one on a frog

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 03/13/19 03:33 AM

Can anyone tell me how I upgrade? I have more tech points than I know what to do with and cannot upgrade. I must say this Virtual Villager game is the most frustrating of all of them. I have many of the first ones and loved them. This one leaves a lot to be desired.
Posted by: KeeganAdministrator

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 03/13/19 06:10 PM

Hi Lori, if you're unable to upgrade your technology levels further, then it means you've reached the maximum possible upgrade (either for the chapter or the game itself).

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 03/14/19 10:42 PM

I am playing VVO2 on PC. I also purchased through Big Fish Games. Is there no way to get tech points quicker. It takes forever to get them as well as getting the lava stones. There should be a faster way to get these! Very frustrating to be stuck waiting on both to be able to proceed through the game.

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 03/16/19 04:34 PM

spoiler alert!
The more villagers that are set to research in the lab (section in back of the anvil) the faster you will make tech points. Scientist that become experts make more points. The only other way to gain tech points that I have done, is to go to the boat at the dock and create items to fill the required objects.When done and filled, you win tech points.

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 03/23/19 12:49 PM

Can I
Click to reveal..
complete puzzle #12 (Destroying the Kraken) before I complete puzzle #8 (The Clay Hut)
or
Click to reveal..
does puzzle #12 trigger the volcano
?

Also, addendum to previous reply regarding tech points and the trading boat, there's no point making multiples to try for multiple trades to get extra tech points as it only accepts one lot of items per trade offered (I found out the hard way). So really, no there's no way to speed things up other than set as many villagers as possible to research (make sure you have enough farmers though). On the plus side, it doesn't take a lot of farmers to feed the village (so far).

Extra question: why does it not display everything the lemur finds when I get back? Sometimes it displays something, more often it doesn't. (After hours, not minutes.) Also, it found at least one collectible and a necklace piece while I was away without notifying me. Why?

Hi Kir, feel free to ask questions of your fellow players right here in the forums by creating a new post (if you're unable to find the answers you seek by searching for them)!

We can also help point you in the right direction with puzzle solutions, crafting combinations and much more!

Well does this mean chapter 2 is not available yet? I cannot find it.

Re: Virtual Villagers Origins 2 Update is rolling out! - 05/13/19 05:14 PM

Hi Lori, Chapter 2 will automatically unlock as soon as you complete all 12 puzzles in Chapter 1!
