At 1st upgrade stage everything breaks and everyone dies

Recommended Posts

I just bought this game a few days ago.  I do enjoy it while it lasts.  Yet, I have tried playing several different games and no matter how I play it once I get to the stage where I'm ready to upgrade buildings (water, farm, engineers and eatery) EVERYTHING starts breaking and they aren't getting repaired AND I have a serious population drop.  Nuggets are dropping like flies and the one and only gravedigger can't possibly keep up, which causes even more nuggets to die.  I run out of God powers because of all this.  Also, the God powers aren't what they say they are.  The rejuvenate one says it's only 1, but it drops my points by 10 every time.  This whole issue is very frustrating.  I even tried moving past all this to see if maybe it gets better, but how can it when everyone is dying so fast they can't get any upgrades done???

 

Even though I'm pretty new to this game, I'm not new to gaming, nor am I new to Village/Civilization games as they are my favorites.

Also noticed that - either the nuggets stop mating, or they don't build up anymore or starve to death. Is there any chance to get a fix for this, soon? It just spoils all the fun, right in the middle of the game!

Today, I noticed that the school has something to say about getting your nuggets educated or else everything will crumble, so I tried that on a new game.  Things seemed to be going well, but now my gravedigger is frozen "In Shock and Awe" and Kickstarting him won't do anything.  Plus, if I reassign another nugget to be the gravedigger, he immediately going into shock AND this is with a lot of my younger nuggets being educated.  I searched the forum and haven't seen this.  I love the game while it lasts

Oh, I wanna try the schooling aspect next game then  :)  But I have noticed this rapid decline in the nuggets/game after getting the refineries up too.

The schooling didn't get me much further -- just a little bit.  That's when I started having the issues with the "shock and awe."  I've been restarting my game when it happens only to have some other nugget go into "shock and awe."  Can't wait for them to fix this.  

 

I did the schooling before the cemetery, but I also pushed through the blue researches as fast as I could.  I can't tell who's educated and who isn't or whether "everyone" gets educated even if they aren't in school IDK.

I found telling apart educated vs non-educated nuggets confusing also, however I've only played 2 games so far to get schools up and running. I figured I was missing something obvious.  LoL

I can't tell you how many games I've played.  I'm stubborn like that.  If I thought I did something wrong, I'd just start over and over and over.  Right now, I have 3 saved but deleted a bunch of saved games knowing I wouldn't go back to them.  I'll probably keep playing even if I can only get to that stage when everything collapses...maybe.  Waiting for the next update too.

Thank you for the info, but where?  Is it just on their info when you click on them or is there a way to see en mass (ie from the nugget list). It seems very tedious to try and find an educated nugget out of 33 uneducated if the only way to tell is to click on them.

Click on the nugget and in their info panel you will see a duck on the right I think :rolleyes:

I'm not too sure where the communication breakdown happened, but I'll try again.

 

I see the duck you're talking about (and I assume that the duck changes to a book when educated) but is there any way other than randomly clicking on nuggets to find an educated nugget when you need one?  I feel like looking down on my population and picking one at random trying to find a book icon rather than a duck would be frustrating (even going through the list and zooming in, then clicking would be tedious)

Same, and it is always around the time of the refineries / when you start upgrading the buildings of your village.

 

Could it be a question of the lifespan / childhood-to-adult age range ??  Something about this critical point in the timeline makes it very difficult to progress much further in the game

just if nuggets do freeze, I find using telekinesis and moving them resets them to continue with their job

I think this is exactly the cause, because when you build those every new building you will need will require the refined materials, but if you follow the work progress there you will see no work is getting done. The nuggets assigned there will just come there and do nothing.

It's been this way since the first beta I test, until the address it there is no point adding more content, sadly playing it at this point is a waste of our time until they fix it.

 

It's nothing to do with the schools, I build them pretty early and it makes very litte difference.
