Villagers lifecycle

Baby (days 0-2): your villager haven't any hair yet, and he seems to do nothing except crawl around.

You can still earn vitally important happiness points by crafting a baby creche for him to take daily naps at. Keep an eye in his thought bubbles, and don't treat him less worth because actually he is at this life stage even more worth to your happiness points creation.

He isn't half as picky: while adults need to be given all five items they fancy that they would use even one, only item baby will need to start producing points is a baby creche (which is fast to build), and only food he needs to have to keep producing them, milk.


Maybe he doesn't work for goods he spends, but on the other hand there isn't any cheaper way to produce happiness points than feeding him (takes only 2 lowest wood pieces and spends zero energy). 

Unlike your adult villagers who are building village, he also got plenty of time to activities that produce lot of happiness points - as newborn that is taking naps in a baby creche so build it as soon as possible.



Toddler (days 2-4): your villager has learnt to walk and needs rather toys than day naps. He also got some hair now.

Craft a toy rattle and remember to start task again immediately once he has used first rattle to end.

Feeding him time to time is still good idea: it's again plenty of nearly free happiness points that you can't enjoy long anymore.



Child (days 4-13): Your baby has grown up and demands for sure every possible free time activity there is. It's very hard to keep him happy anymore, because he got adult villagers wishes and demands, but on the other hand he still can't do a thing himself. Good side is that he doesn't neccessarily need own bed slot from villages houses yet, and he still keeps producing happiness points while adults work.

Teen age (days 13-18): Child can't date yet, but you can already start searching for spouse for him, because he will be old enough in 5 days, which is short time to search. Good places are Village Life official facebook page, and Village Friends community page.

You can finally start giving him some work to do, and for now on hardest time is behind - he will only help you. He also needs own bed slot from house, can be this happens already at age 12.

In the picture teenager is building a house for himself and his future spouse. He is now little older than 14 years, so will take about same 3 days for him to grow up, than to build the house. Planning is the key with teenagers.

Young adult (18-40): This is best time to start having babies as soon as possible so start dating at least in 2 days after aging up. This will prevent your village dying to lack of people. Of course, couple can also end up to spouses village, but don't be afraid of this because you still need to marry to keep population growing, and earlier the better.

There is rumours about villagers possibly being able to come pregnant even at 50+, but you can't choose when couple wants to have a baby (except by paying for game), and it can take long before they do. So only way to have 2 children for sure, is to marry around 19-21 years.

Adult (40-60): Your villagers physical appearance changes a little bit. Hair gets lighter and can look little different than before - although hair cut doesn't change.

Elder (60-85): Appearance changes again and villager can't certainly have any children anymore. He will pass at age of 85 or 90, and you will have some gems. Villagers don't have graves so far, so you can only see them in family tree - if everything gone as supposed and they formed family, or if they have siblings - and remember them with warm thought when using your gems obtained.

  1. Village Life sees players growing virtual villagers from the moment they’re born, helping them fulfill their needs and guiding them through life’s large events. These events may include their first date with Village Life another villager, getting married, having children and eventually going into old age. These villagers can have relationships with villagers from other players’ games, offering unique social play not usually seen in other “city-builder” social games.

    2. It takes five days for the baby to become a child and then, once they're 13 they'll be able to complete tasks and such. They'll want to find love when they turn 18.

  5. Real days, and if you cannot see the baby just leave it for a few days or restart your device

  6. My villager became pregnant at age 51. Maybe it's because her husband is really young.

  7. My couple had had the twins from the beginning game, then one an hour later, then one the next day. I have a house that fits six villagers, I only have the married couple moved in. It's been two days and my couple haven't wanted kids, is this because it's not coded in the game, or b cause the house is technically full. I saw online that married couples want to try for a kid each day.

    1. My original villagers had children every single day and it increased my population so much that when their children wanted to date I had to find people who where higher in star ranking so that they'd leave my village. In total my original couple had 22 kids and then they left my village at age 54.

    3. My first couple had about 10 kids and I've lost 3 to marriage and now I have 39 of 39 so then now I can't marry anyone or have any kids for the couples who don't have any kids and they age so fast, then I have to wait for my 50 year olds to die before I can have anymore people or kids, but I have at least 1 kid from each couple. I'm level 28

    1. Sadly, he is never going to have kids. The wife is past the prime age for having kids (which is 18-40). It is also said in the game FAQs that when villagers marry, they marry for life (meaning that they cannot divorce or remarry).

  10. My parents are both only 30 years old and they only have 3 kids but it's been 3 days since their last baby was born and my population isn't maxed so can families just stop wanting to have kids even before the age limit?

  15. I'm on level 52 and i had 216 people and in the 8 months I haven't played until now and I only have 4 people left. The rest died. WHY??

    ReplyDelete
  16. if you go over your population limit through marriage or quests for a few days older couples tend to leave after age 55. I have had four couples leave so far doing that on accident.
