- Tech points are often acquired by your villagers, and can be used to purchase upgrades that your villagers can use.
- If you tap on the “Tech” menu off to the left side of the screen, you can see the different abilities available to you. Each upgrade will allow you to have more skills in the different categories.
- Farming will allow you to harvest from several different crops, ones that are not necessarily just the berry bush.
- Upgrading Medicine will decrease the possibility of disease hitting the island. Your villagers will also live longer with this upgrade.
- Fertility will increase the likelihood of a baby being produced each time you make villagers breed with each other.
- Upgrading the Construction skill will allow your villagers to solve more complex problems on the island, and build more advanced buildings.
- Science advancements allow you to gain tech points faster each time an activity is completed.
- Spirituality is important to your villagers, and will bring them additional happiness when upgraded.
- Additional tech upgrades you can purchase include Time Warp (advances time on the island by 3 years) and Island Event (will immediately cause an island event to occur).
And to add some personal note:
Make sure to give your villagers some task and strictly monitor them that they are doing it (they tend to leave the task and rest). While your villagers are doing your designated task, exit the game go to your Phone's Time and Date menu, advance the time maybe about 24 hrs then go back to the game and you'll see that the tasks are done and theirs a big difference with regards to the Tech points, mastery of task etc.... :-). This will do the trick advancing the game, specially if you are impatient.... like me... ;-)*** These are all combined reviews*** :-)
