Village Life fans rejoyce, below you will find a list of tips and tricks, some of them quite unique. Before you ask, no, these are not cheats, but help you get the resources you need much faster though and avoid some in-game bugs.
1. HOW TO LEVEL UP FASTER IN VILLAGE LIFE
Believe it or not, one bug that seems to be affecting lots of users is the fact that you won’t collect any happiness if you stay logged off the game. We tested ourselves and you can quickly level up if you stay logged in to Village Life (maybe using a second browser for that purpose and just letting the game run on its own). However as soon as you leave the game, the happiness gathering will almost completely stop. It seems like the game is paused when you sign out. Consider this a quick fix that allows you to level up much faster at the same time.
2. HOW TO GET MORE KEYS AND GEMS IN VILLAGE LIFE FOR FREE
If you are patient, you will soon realize that as you reach higher levels, the amount of free keys and free gems you get each time you level up end up exceeding your unlocking needs. By level 50, you should have already unlocked almost all the items available and start gathering keys that you will not use. You get at least 1 key and 20 gems each time you hit a new level, just use it wisely when a quest requires you to do so.
Marry your villagers as soon as you can. Yes, some people opt to leave their villagers single, but they forget that right now, lost villagers show up very often, compensating the loss. You get plenty of happiness (which takes you to more keys and gems) and lots of gems from the ceremony as well.
3. DO NOT GET MARRIED IF YOU ARE CLOSE TO LEVELLING UP
If you are quite close to filling up the shrine, do not get married just yet. This is because the extra happiness bubbles after the shrine is full will get wasted, they are not gathered and go to the next level meter (remember that you need a manual action to reach the new level).
4. REDUCE TO 0 THE WORKING HOURS FOR ANY GIVEN TASK/QUEST
This Village Life tip goes to those that hate marriages (even though the developers changed the game balance, a lost villager seems to find your village each time you lose the newlywed).
Before ACCEPTING a marriage proposal (we’re talking about accepting and not sending, since you can control the first one). Accept a quest/task that you know might take lots of hours (buried squirrel, gingergread house, etc) and put the villager that has been requested to get married to work on that specific task. As soon as the wedding ceremony is finished, whether or not the couple leaves the village, the task will be automatically completed.
5. PAY ATTENTION TO RED THOUGHT BUBBLES
As we told you in our first tutorial, villagers have core needs, being shelter, fire, water and food. Now, if they start piling up several core needs, specially the big white thought bubbles, you risk them producing less happiness and you will certainly start seeing the big red thought bubbles to the right of the character profile, indicating he/she can’t have fun. In a few words, expect that villager to produce a lot less happiness bubbles if you don’t satisfy first the core needs. Green thought bubbles are different, since the villager will soon be doing that activity with not many core needs in the way.
[box type=”shadow”]Tools Break Too Often: Indeed, specially those made of wood, flint and tin are the ones that break really quick just after a few uses. This is not a bug and the problem is that you keep needing them for harvesting certain type of wood or foraging some bushes.[/box]
[box type=”shadow”]Fun Buildings Lifecycle: All these buildings wear off after a certain amount of uses and you must remove them from the village since they wear off. For many, the lifecyle of such facilities is very short, but nonetheless is not a bug.[/box]
[box type=”shadow”]Need to POST some items in order to get them from neighbors: Not a Village Life bug either. We believe the developers made a mistake by doing this, since nobody looks at the game feed to see what others are posting, they will surely replace “post” for “ask” soon. It’s only active negibors that can actually help you.[/box]
