I see quite a few people who change their computer clock in an attempt to increase their food or tech points. I always advise against it, but it still happens. It's a really really bad idea. Most of the time, it messes up the game. Villagers die, tech points disappear, etc. That's all bad enough, but the thing that worries me even more is how changing the clock can mess up lots of other computer functions.
Think about all the things that rely on the computer clock. All documents are date and time stamped. System recovery is marked with dates and times. Calendar and scheduled events. Pretty much everything on the computer uses the clock in one way or another.
On top of all of that, you're missing out on the game itself when you cheat your way to more food or tech points. What's the point of playing a strategy and "real time" game if you're just going to change the clock to to "beat" the game?
So, please please please... don't change the computer clock when playing Virtual Villagers.

Here is a screen shot of the Chief teaching the children (note that they all have black hair, heh). The white sparkle on the child's head is an indicator that they have gotten experience points from the teaching (red arrow).

This is a screen shot of my black-haired tribe having their Blessings Day Celebration. It's not often that all the village comes together like that, so I wanted to get a shot of it. I'm nearly at the max village capacity.

I found a fun site called Jay Is Games where folks post in a forum about the Virtual Villagers games. I've posted some stuff in the comments section and thought it would be fun to start my own blog to post pictures and anything else Villager related. I don't want to take up too much space on the host's blog. I appreciate that they let me comment and answer questions. If anyone makes their way here to my own blog... WELCOME!!!
