Use the following trick to get unlimited Water Miracles
on the first level. At the place where there is the
first silver reward, scroll on land one. After completing
it, knock over the rock again and it turns into a
Hold [Alt] and press 1 to slow down time or hold [Alt]
and press 2 to speed up time.
South Park spoof:
Leave the game running without taking any actions.
Eventually, you will hear the advisors in a spoof
of South Park.
You can teach your creature some miracles easily.
Take either Food, Wood, Water, Lightning, Fireball,
Teleport, or any other miracle you can use and use
some/regrab it. Then put the rest back in the dish at
the worship site. You will get the same amount of prayer
power, so you can use it again.
Finding one-shot miracles:
You can sometimes find one-shot miracles under
trees and rocks.
Dice and a teddy bear:
In land one (the first island), go above the cache (the
location where many children live), and zoom in until
you are "in" the house. You should see two big dice, a
small die, and a big Teddy Bear.
Unlimited Lightning Miracles:
Take the Lightning Miracle and go the the edge of your
influence. You can win whole towns by jumping out long
enough for a brief shot and back in before it is used up.
Did you know, that if you search for the file names.txt
in your Black directory, you will be able to edit this
list of names that are allocated to your villagers.
Make sure that you type how many names are in the list
on the first line of the text file, so if you had 50
names in your list, the first line would read 50. Add
the names of your friends, or the names of your enemies,
it will add a new level of villager interaction.
Custom villager names:
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file;
create a backup copy of the file before proceeding.
Use a text editor to edit the "names.txt" file in the
game folder. You can change the names contained in the
file as desired, for example use friends or family.
However, the number of names in the file must match the
number listed in the first line.
Dizzy evil conscience:
Start the tutorial and wait for your conscience to stop
talking. Repeatedly move your mouse in circles and your
evil conscience's head will eventually start spinning.
Unlimited food and wood:
Activate a Food or Wood Miracle. Then hold the Hand
over the door of the village store or workshop and
quickly and repeatedly press the Right Mouse Button.
If done correctly, a large amount of food or wood will
be created for very little mana.
Beach balls, bowling balls and bowling pins:
Go to the God's Playground (press [F2] during game play)
and exit out of the first tutorial by pressing [Esc].
Then zoom all the way out. Look for the small island off
of the larger one. When you find it, zoom in on it.
Rotate the camera so that you are looking at the small
island and can see the large island in the distance.
At the base of the small island you will see two beach
balls, two bowling balls and some bowling pins with smiley
faces on them.
Smiley face footprints:
Set your system date to April 1 and being the game.
Your character will leave smiley face footprints in
April Fools Trick:
During the game on April 1st, Your monster will leave
smiley face foot prints in the ground instead of their
regular foot prints. You do this change your computer's
date to April 1st.
Since navigation is such a big part of this game,
personalizing control is key to your success and
enjoyment of the game. While point and click control
is well developed, we found that it is quicker to assign
movement to the keyboard. Map the movement controls to
the AWSD buttons, like a first person shooter.
Set Q and E for camera rotation, and R and F to change
pitch. This will make controlling your god hand quick
and easy, and keep your other hand free to use the two-button mouse and zoom wheel.
Double-clicking is another great way to move around the map
and quickly zoom in on action you want to be a part of.
Whenever moving around the map, zoom out and tilt down to
get a bigger perspective. It will save you a lot of time
and frustration to see the whole island and simply click
to the region you want to be in.
While your powers only work within areas you control,
you can affect areas outside of your domain for a very
brief period of time. By quickly crossing outside of
your realm of influence, you can grab valuable resources
and even rival villagers that you can convert or sacrifice
to gain more Miracle power.
