Villagers can produce children once they are fully adult (age 18 & up). Once a female villager reaches the age of 50, she will no longer be able to have babies. Male villagers do not have an age restriction on their ability to have children. This article will answer the most frequently asked questions about babies and children in Virtual Villagers Origins 2.
How do I make new villagers?
Drag an adult male villager onto an adult female villager or vice versa and wait for them to go to the Love Shack to try. Remember that villagers have personalities just like we do, so they may not be interested in each other on the first few tries. Keep trying and good luck! :)
Why is my female villager not pregnant after trying for a baby?
Just as in real life, villagers will not always become pregnant. You may need to send your villagers to the Love Shack a few times before they welcome a new life into the village. Don't give up!
Why do my villagers never try to have a baby on their own?
If you'd like your villagers to become parents, you will need to select "Auto-Breeding" for at least one adult of each gender in the Villager Details menu. If nobody visits the Love Shack for a while, make sure that at least one villager of each gender is selected as your auto-parent. Also bear in mind that, as in real life, the health and food supply of your village will affect villagers' ability to bear children.
How long does it take for my villager to stop nursing the baby?
It will take 4 real time hours for the baby to be able to walk around on their own. You do not have to keep the game open during this time; however, if you pause the game, the nursing timer will not count down and it will take longer for the baby to be "born".
