Vacationer Task Achievement⇓

To achieve the Vacationer achievement task in Virtual Families 3, you need to go on a family trip. Here’s how to go on a family trip in Virtual Families 3: –

How To Go On A Family Trip In Virtual Families 3⇓

Virtual Families 3 Family Trip

First of all, you need to wait for the family trip event. An RV van will appear on the gravel driveway (right side of your home). Drag the character from your home to the RV van in the gravel driveway for a family trip. If there is no RV van in the driveway, that means the family trip event is not yet available. Devs release new family trip events now and then, so keep an eye on the game updates, driveway, and their social media handles. 

When you drag the character to the RV Van, you get the option to take a family trip. Tap that button to enter the trip plot, where you will have some activities to do to earn trip points, which you can exchange for other items. 

Getting Married In Virtual Families 3

Right after creating the character in Virtual Families 3, you can find your partner online and get married. (an email icon appears in the top-right corner) All you need to do is drag the character to the computer table(tap + hold the character and take it to the computer table). Then, the character will use the computer, go online, and look for a partner; you can help the character in selecting a perfect partner. After that, the partner will move into the house and they will start celebrating the wedding!

Have Kids In Virtual Families 3

How to have kids in Virtual Families 3 Our Country Home? It’s pretty easy; all you need to do is drag an adult character onto an opposite-gender character(adult male -> adult female or vice versa). If both characters are willing to have babies, they will try making them by going to the bedroom(you should buy a nice couch or bed before you take this action).


If they are against procreation, you can adopt a baby. Tap the store button in the bottom-center -> upgrades -> adoption services. How many kids can you have in the game? Max 12(approx.). Comment if you have crossed this figure!

Guide To Careers In Virtual Families 3

Characters in Virtual Families 3 work in the kitchen, office, and workshop/workroom. Based on their career, you can drag them onto the station; keep sending them, and they will work on their career. Tap on the character, and at the bottom, check its career. For example – if it’s a kitchen-related job(like mustard bottler, personal cook), send the character to the kitchen. 

Career Progress Of Characters

To check the progress of characters, first select the character; at the bottom, tap its icon(appears when you select a character) -> this will open its profile where you can check the career progress; career level – beginner, novice, apprentice, licensed, practiced, accomplished, exceptional, and master. The higher the level, the higher the pay. 

How Long Does It Take To Receive Salary

Every 24 hours(daily, real-time), the salary is credited to the character’s bank account. Even if the character does not go to work, he/she will get the salary. Note: characters are also paid after each work cycle – so make sure to encourage them to do the career work(drag them to the appropriate station; based on the career – keep pushing them until they start doing it). This way you can earn more coins for free without any sort of cheats! 

Increasing Character’s Income

As said above, the characters in the game get their salary even if they don’t work! That does not mean there is no need to encourage them to go to work. If you want them to drive more income, encourage them to do the work, praise them while they are doing work, give them candies and fruit, and get them a promotion – this will help you earn more coins! 

Characters Would Not Work Much

Most times, characters don’t go to work and refuse to work when they are sick, hungry, suffering from any sort of depression, or there is a distraction like fixing things, cleaning home, etc. Try working on these aspects if the characters refuse to visit the work. 

My Characters Would Not Get a Promotion

The characters only get the promotion when they focus on their career work. Make sure to encourage them to work, praise them while they work, and give them fruits and candies – this way, you can promote them quickly. You can check their progress in the profile menu; tap their icons after selecting them.

Where Is Workshop In VF3?

In Virtual Families 3, the workshop is not available at the start. You will need to save the coins and buy it; tap on the store -> home improvements/renovation -> tap on the wrench/tool icon -> you can build a basic workroom that costs 3850 coins, a deluxe room for 12k coins, and a hobbyist workroom for 6.5k coins. 

“Fixing Things” Virtual Families 3 Walkthrough Guide⇓

Note: this article/guide is in development. New information will be added later 🙂 Got questions? Ask in the comment section below. 

Check Out The Flee Market Regularly For Certificates

Tip: make sure to check the flee market in the Virtual Family 3 game now and then. You may get a good deal on certificates that allow you to access special functions in the game. For example: to collect special collectibles from the dirt mound, you will need a rockhound certificate. Without this certificate, you will not be able to dig; it will say something else is needed. You need a rockhound certificate to dig items and collect them from the ground.  

How Do You Get Rid Of The Items That You Don’t Need In Virtual Families 3

Many players replace their old furniture items with new expensive ones to make the house beautiful. To get rid of the old furniture items or any item that you don’t need, tap on the inventory option at the top of the screen(food inventory, furniture inventory, clothing inventory, etc.). Then tap on that item and hold it -> drag it to the game’s entrance and drop over the garbage bins. This way you can sell items and get free coins. 

Walkthrough To Cure Sickness Of Characters

Virtual Families 3 game simulates not only a real-life career and tasks but also ailments. As a player, you need to make sure that every family member is happy – not in the ailment status. You can check it by tapping the character and then looking at the “status” at the lower right. In this walkthrough guide, we have shared a cheat list to cure all sorts of sicknesses. If none of these work, you can consult an in-game doctor by navigating to the store -> food & medicine -> look for “Doctor Consultation“. Doctor Consultation costs 495 in-game coins. 

My Character Is Tired

If the family characters are exhausted or tired, you must let them rest. Don’t push them to do activities like work, cleaning, fixing, etc. You can drag them to the couch or bed when they are tired and let them sleep. Since the game simulates real life, your characters must sleep at least 6-8 hours. Close the game for 6-8 hours to do so. 

My Character In The Game Is Depressed

If a family member is suffering from depression, then it could be because of these things: did someone die? Are you praising that character? Do you give candies and fruits? Let’s say if someone from the in-game family dies, then other members/characters might get depressed for some time. In this case, you can wait a bit, and they will get out of depression automatically(or use the method mentioned below). Other reasons could be not having babies; go to the characters’ profiles and see if they want kids or not. If yes, then go for it. Read the “kids” part above for more details. 

How to cure depression: –

  • Professional Counseling: select a character, tap its profile icon -> then tap on “upgrade me” on its photo -> use the arrow keys to check upgrades; look for “Psychotherapy”. Use this upgrade to cure depression
  • Praise: praise the characters now and then. Also, give them fruits and candies
  • Make home improvements
  • Have kids

My In-Game Character Has Cough

Walkthough: In Virtual Families 3, if someone has a cough, you can give them Antitussive Syrup, which you can buy from the store – food & medicine -> spend 65 coins. 

My In-Game Character Has Headache

Walkthough: give that character Analgesic. It’s a medicine that you can buy from the in-game store -> food & medicine. 

My Character Has Hiccups

Walkthrough: tap on that character + hold it -> drag & drop it over the sink -> keep doing this until they drink the water. 

My Character’s Status Shows Itchy

Walkthrough: go to the store menu -> food & medicine -> look for “Cortisone cream” – it costs 40 gold coins. Buy it and use it on the character that’s feeling itchy. 

My Character’s Status Shows Sore Thorat

Walkthough: In Virtual Families 3, you can get Thorat Lizenges from the store -> food & medicine. Use it on the character that has a sore throat. 

My Character’s Status Shows Sneezing

My Character’s Status Shows Upset Stomach

Walkthrough: – turn to the store menu -> food & medicine -> look for “Peptic Syrup” – buy it with 35 coins. Use it on the character that has upset stomach. 

Walkthrough To Garden Beds, Lawn

(1) You can buy lawn and garden beds from the store -> home improvements. You can have a variety of garden beds in different-different locations outside the home; northeast cactus garden, flower bed, lawn, west cactus garden, west flower bed, lawn, etc.

(2) Lawn and flowers require watering; make sure to sprinkle water 3-4 times a day. Otherwise, the grass would not grow and flowers will be in poor condition. 

(3) You can buy an automatic sprinkler by spending 1000 coins. Go to upgrades -> buy automatic sprinkler. In Virtual Families 3, automatic sprinkler helps you keep the flower beds and lawn in good condition – you would not need to water them manually. 

(4) Gardener – The gardener is one of the service workers just like the maid who helps by pulling weeds for you. You can hire a gardener by spending 1000 coins/day. The service workers leave once the task is completed. 

(5) In the store -> furniture -> outdoors -> you can buy a riding lawnmower to mow the lawn. 

It’s Dark In Night

Most people play Virtual Families 3 in the night and in the night, everything gets dark around the house. What you can do is use the reverse day/night function. Go to menu -> settings -> toggle the “reverse day/night” and turn it on. This will reverse the day into night and night into day. This way you can enjoy the game at night. 

Virtual Families 3 Ghost Girl

In Virtual Families 3, A little ghost girl often appears inside the house or sometimes outside the house; the light will start flickering upon her appearance. To make this ghost girl disappear, you will need a doll toy. 

Virtual Families 3 Ghost Girl & Doll Toy

How to get the doll toy for the little ghost girl? It’s a random event/discovery in the game when an adult character finds the doll in Virtual Families 3, you can not discover the doll toy manually by yourself – Doll Toy Event story; X has been thinking about the footprints that have been appearing in the yard and decides that they must lead somewhere important. He decides to do a little investigation in that corner of the yard.

The family decides that the best place for it is on the toy shelf. Maybe the girl will find it there?

  2. Kaj naj naredim če sta se moja mala človeka (mož in žena, z 2 otrokoma in brez živali) skregala. Vsakič ko ju dam skupaj, da bi dobila še enega otroka se začneta kregati in nekaj kazati z rokami (kot bi kazala potko)? Ali bi bilo možno da bi se ločila in bi se en odselil?
    Translation: What should I do if my little people (husband and wife, with 2 children and no animals) had a fight. Every time I put them together to have another baby, they start fighting and pointing something with their hands (as if showing a weft)? Would it be possible for them to divorce and for one to move out?

  3. This has probably been asked before, But, How many levels does it take to Master a career? My little person is now at Level 16 and still has not mastered it, instead it says “Acomplished”.

  4. So in virtual families 3, I bought a flat screen TV and have a loveseat and couch in front of it and ever since I bought the tv they sit on the floor, why?

  5. Even WHEN i don’t know much about computers, i never believed I could have TOTAL access to my spouse’s iPhone, TEXT MESSAGES ,snapchat, call logs , INSTAGRAM ,FACEBOOK, Line and WHATS APP without having physical contact until i was recommendation by my best friend to a professional *hacker*. He only asked for little information and the phone number of my spouse i never wanted to contact him at First because i was so scared but trust me it was worth the RISK because i was happy to get proof for my lawyer to file a divorce.
    Contact him via email: [email protected]
    Call or Text on +1(747)345-9036..

  6. My dog won’t eat it says he’s starving and food down in the bowls every time I drag him to it nothing he won’t eat in his own I even brought the 3rd food bowl and more food for him from the shop he’s not sick or anything he just won’t eat what do I do

  7. I can’t place my fire works stand anywhere. Do you need a specific thing to be able to place it like the back deck or a patio?

  8. in this game it takes a really long time to earn money even when they’re encouraged to work. in the second version of the game it was easier (but not too easy) and faster to earn enough money in the game. it seems like 2 was more fun because every-time you open the app you had enough money to do a house upgrade or something but now i’m 3 it’s impossible basically to do one upgrade at least a day. it gets boring and i tend to lose interest. can anyone help?

  9. How much money do you get when you watch ads? I’ve noticed from other people online that they get $200. I only get $30 each ad?

  10. I was receiving interest from the bank and one day it stopped. What’s up? This game is a step down from VF2. It took them years to develop a game that is essentially the same with the good parts removed.

  11. How do you use the toys with the pets? You can buy them, but the only one pet that seems to use anything is the cat on the scratching post. They don’t even like the beds. They rather sleep on the cold hard floor. Also, how do you go about with training?

  12. I just got 13 kids! I went to adopt a 12th and had to wait for the adoption to be confirmed, the email popped up so I had my parents try for another child and they had one at 49! And then the adoption was approved in the email so now I have 13!

  13. How come my when my 1st character got a promotion, he got a higher pay. And when my 2nd character got her promotion, she dropped from $105 to $60? They are both novice now. Help please.

    • The salaries are different for every career. It might drop and then get much bigger once they level up. Up to six levels in careers.

    • You have to log into Facebook or your apple account with your existing game, save it. Then log into your new phone with the same account. Hope this helps!

    • Make sure there is food in the refrigerator. Cure sickness if they are sick. Give them fruits, vitamins, antibacterial hand gel to improve their health

  14. Money making tip: just keep looking around the backyard and having your kids pick up collectibles. They sell for about 100 gold each, super helpful!

  15. A tent showed up in the backyard on the right side, did anyone know what that’s about? My people don’t do anything when I drag them to it. I didn’t buy it, it just showed up and had no explanation ?

  16. When I buy food it says my fridge is empty, and my characters are starving and then they die even my kids died is there something wrong with my game, I have tried to delete it and reinstall but I am still having the same problem help please,

      • buying the girl the doll is NOT how to do it. she is a ghost and she lost her doll before she died. you have to wait for a notification message/diary about: soandso has been thinking about the footprints in the back yard… [that is the ghost girl searching for her doll.] THEN you take your person and drag them to the bushes/trees just past that circus looking tent in the middle/right of the screen and yard. drop them there and they will or should go into the woods and come out with the doll she is looking for [the doll has a blue dress]. leave your person alone and he or she will take the doll to the shelf and then the ghost girl will go away.

  17. One of my parent family members continues to be stuck at age 27. How do I fix the problem? I looked online and it said this happens if you fast forward time but I haven’t done that. Unless they consider starting a new generation when both parents pass and leave an 11 year old adopted child. Then I usually start over.

    • You can buy food at the store and place it in the fridge.
      How you do that is going to store buy groceries
      Then pull down the decor bottom and you see the bag with food then press the grocery you bought and place it and the table.

  18. One of my characters refuse to take a shower. He shakes his head every time. This been going on for 2-3 days now. Is there something I can do?

  19. the little ghost girl is the dead daughter of the little people you’re taking care of. that’s why it keeps coming around.

    • She’s actually the daughter of the previous tenants of the house, who moved away and unfortunately accidentally left the doll at the house, causing the poor girl to forever wander and continue to haunt the house, searching for her favorite doll

  20. There is a rock/ gravel road looking thing on the left side of my house. I don’t know what it is and where is came from. Can someone help?

  21. My characters won’t pick up items when dropped on them.. it’s like they don’t even know they are there. Is this a game glitch or what?

  22. Where does the new goals fit into
    1. Achievementmorevacationertitle
    2. Achievementseetheworldtitle
    Does it perhaps have reference to the tent in my yard, and is this olso about the holiday ornaments that still have to appear?

  23. I’m in my 11 generation and I still haven’t had the phone call about finding the ghost doll what exactly will happen before so I’ll know what to do. I get strange calls but that’s it how much farther in the game will I find her doll

    • I don’t think you will get a phone call. My characters randomly noticed footprints in the yard and after about an hour of looking they just ran inside with the doll and put it on the shelf. Then the ghost girl stopped coming.

  24. How do I gather the collection with the brown spot on the lawn? I place a person on it and it just keeps saying something else is needed! What is needed?!

  25. Hi,when i started playing virtual famillies 3 i used to see the status of “want kids” for my kids, now i cannot see. Why is that? I can see only status for the mum and dad.

  26. I already had the call from grandma and my discovery where you get the ghost girls doll I didn’t go get it cause I was curing my people that was sick my question is will it pop back up will I get the toy

    • Yes it will pop up again, u just need a little child in your home, I believe the game uses the little child to kick start the event, try to always fix the house issues that pops up time to time by using the phone, my virtual child actually got cut off from the toy search (following footsteps) twice because of the repairs pop ups….I finally got it the third time ….so, yes it will pop up again just be ready when it does

  27. How do I stop my characters being extremely weak? I tried to make them sleep, eat, even gave them multivitamins, but nothing work.

    And also, if a married male loose his wife when he’s still young, like 20-30, will he go marry someone else or just stay with no one?

    • they usually have an infection. but to be sure get them the doctor. the stethoscope under the food and medicine. buy that and place that on the extremely weak person. get the results which come in a pop up message form and do what the results say. usually its penicillin or the other Vancomycin.

  28. Very rarely will my VF3 characters pick up socks or wrappers. Most of the time they won’t pick up the items in the yard either! What’s up with that how do you get them to pick stuff up consistently? I never had an issue when I was playing virtual family 2.

  29. Best way to make money at the start is to collect all collectibles even if you know u have it. when they sell repeat collectibles you will get 100 coins each time and collectibles show up often enough to make some good money and watch the ads. Free coins better than no coins.

  30. I have bought multiple designer outfits but when I check the trophies it says I have bought none.. but it didnt do that for the discount and department outfits? anyone else have this problem?

  31. I just found 2 new collectibles in my yard that are not part of any collection listed on the shelf. One looked like a giant purple glittery egg and the other one looked like a heart. Any ideas?

  32. My gardens look like they are filled with dirt, after I water them they are pretty, but then I come back to the game, they are messy and filled with dirt? It’s strange any way to fix

  33. Hi. I keep getting this round collectible on my lawn, im assuming its minerals but I’m unable to collect. I get the message “something else is needed”. I dont know what to do.

      • After a few hours, the cactus garden looks untended. It appears wilted and covered in dirt. Nothing happens after dragging characters onto the garden. I have the automatic sprinkler and also hired a gardener but nothing restores the cactus garden. Only removing and replacing it using the home improvement tab but then it goes back to the wilted and covered in dirt stage—anybody have any advice on tending to the cactus garden?

  34. I was setting up the dating profile for my person and my game crashed. I loaded it back up and it never popped up again and I’ve had no emails and it’s been almost two days since that happened. How is my person supposed to get married if they get no proposal emails. My character is 35 so I really don’t think waiting is going to solve the problem. Please help, thank you! 🙂

    • idk but i saw her and started loooking for a answer im guessing u have to make her happy or something cause it always says she is disturbed and looking for something

    • I’m attempting find stuff on it, So far I’ve found out that the ghost girl most likely died after drowning in the pond behind the house where you would also find the doll that the ghost and the old lady are both looking for.The pond is mentioned in a call from the Realtor It states “X decides to tell the realtor about the strange happenings.She seems a bit surprised at what X tells her, but she remembers something about an accident involving a little girl at the old pond a few winters ago.You all wonder if they could be related.” Which would also explain why some of the little girls are scared of the pools. That’s all I’ve got on it I can update you if I find anything else.

          • I was playing and got another call, But I was surprised to read that the little girl had called. I will rewrite everything said on the call,’Hello… Hello? X hears a lot of static, but not much else. He can just barely hear make out a girl’s faint voice rising over the static before the line goes dead. That was weird…’ At the same time the phone rang the sink began to leak, ever time I get one of these phone calls/email it something in the house breaks.. Could they be connected? Once again I’ll continue to do these until I find the doll but this is my first gen so I hope we can find out more ^^

      • i’ve had all of this and more happen to me, i read about having to go find the doll in the bushes or something but i don’t understand where. like where is or was the pond that is talked about? anyone know?

  35. Hi, so I’m trying to get all of the encourage task things, and one of them is dusting furnature, how do u get ur characters to do that? And also, how do u dig up the dirt things on the ground? Plz respond

    • In Virtual Families 2 you had to wait until the digging certificate randomly popped up in the flea market. It might be the same for this one, I’m not sure yet. Just installed the game today and trying to learn it too

  36. Does anybody know how to dig when outside? I keep finding patched of ground that have something in but when I put character over it says something else is needed!

  37. This is silly, but I can’t figure out how to get rid of furniture I don’t want anymore. I know it said in the beginning, but I kind of skimmed through and missed it. I put it in the top bar, but now I’ve just got a junky couch and dresser hanging out in my top bar and I don’t know how to get rid of it lol. It’s driving me nuts!

    • You need to enter the decorate mode first. Tap the “furniture” icon at the top of the screen to open the furniture inventory and enter the decorate mode -> then you can select the furniture item by tapping; drag & drop to the inventory area(at the top).

    • There is a garbage bin near the entrance; to get rid of the furniture that you don’t want; open the furniture bar at the top -> select and hold the furniture item -> drag & drop it over the trash bin(near the entrance). You will get a few coins

    • Make sure you’re in decorate mode grab the furniture you don’t want and bring it to the fence once you get over the fence it’ll ask you if you want to sell it

  38. Hello, so I was trying an experiment..

    I bought bottled fog and deployed it at night time, now I don’t know if it’s coincidence but shortly after, a rare picture piece appeared along with other picture pieces that I’ve previously found. Also another uncommon item was around that time too from digging. So assuming depending on weather conditions and time of day you get certain items, sometimes more frequently it seems. Also to note too, when I changed the weather and found the rare picture piece the little ghost girl appeared to the collectible shelf so I don’t know, again just a thought! 🙂

  39. Does anyone know why my praise button won’t work? I click on the “hand” icon and then click on one of my little people and it does nothing. I also tried dragging it. I wanted to praise for working on their career. Thanks!

  40. I got a letter saying we heard about what happened to your daughter and it was sent to the previous owner so I think the girl is the previous owners daughter that died

    • I got 2 calls and a letter, one from the grandma of the little girl, wanting to know if a toy had been left behind, the letter said the same as yours, addressed to the previous owners, and a second phone call from the realtor who explain she believe the little girl died in an accident at the pond a few winters back. The picture pieces found I belive once put together Will show the girl and her family and possibly explain the ghost girl more.

  41. There’s a little ghost girl that appears around my house. At first she would just appear in random places but then i bought a children’s toy and she started appearing at it. It always says she’s looking for something. I think the little girl is looking for a particular toy. Who knows though? Any ideas?

      • I was thinking that too. But maybe it’s one of the collectibles from the toy section? When my resin first moved into the house they got an email about some ‘stories’ they could tell about the house. And then one of the things to collect is some family portrait. Maybe the little ghost girl used to live there and is just looking for her doll?

        • So i finished the toy collection, and what happened was the doll item was found in a random event AFTER the foot print one- kid decides to check out where the prints were leading and he finds a doll… after that the ghost has stopped appearing, and nothing else has happened yet

  42. How do I get the adult to use the green lawn mower? Also why do they take so long so move around. They walk so slow. Now, I know in VF2 you praise them multiple times when working so they can get money until you get back on. I did that is VF3 and the money in my bank is the same when I get back on to play. Lastly, how can I get them to advance in their career? It takes forever and they never get a promotion unless I pay for the advancement. Please help, thank you.

    • Put them to work daily and praise them while they are working – that’s what I have been doing for career promotion. Keep patience, they eventually get promoted if you keep doing this

    • store -> flee market -> starter tool box(175 coins) big red tool box(475). As far as I know, level means career progression; beginner(level 1), novice(level 2), apprentice(level 3), licensed(level 4), practiced(lvl 5), accomplished(lvl6), exceptional(level 7), and master(level 8). When the character gets promotion, it’s raised by 1 level. Tap on it, then tap on its icon in the lower-left corner -> there you will see the level info.

  43. Hi, I jsut got the game in my country and i have two people who have 3 young kids. They have very little money so i bought the dad a Workshop magazine but it says he’s confused?? I spent 300 coins on it and he won’t even use it it!!! Help!

    • You bought him a magazine that’s not related to his career. If he worked in the workshop it would make sense, but you need to get him something that helps him progress HIS CURRENT career, not a random one.

  44. Dude, I’ve loved these games since they came out. Shame the AI for the characters has remained the same. I’ve been having trouble on one part. The bathroom sink burt’s, so they’re constantly screaming about the burst pipe. Alright, easy. I already had the toolbox so I thought I could drag them there and they would fix it. Well, they won’t fix the sink/pipe at all. I even dragged them to the toolbox and they just shake their head but don’t say anything. I’m stumped. I don’t have the workshop yet and don’t have enough money to get it. They won’t do anything except scream about the pipe and they’re already hungry. I’m pretty sure that they’ll probs die of hunger if I don’t fix the pipe

    • You character gets their “salary” once an hour, whether they work or not, However, when you make them work they only get “Extra” cokns

  45. I can’t get my people with kitchen based careers to work no matter where in the kitchen I drop them. They’ll start looking for a snack or preparing a meal or getting a drink of water, but they will never work. Do you know the secret?

    • It happened to me too. I just kept dropping him over the kitchen stoves ? but he would not work. Then I started dropping him over the sink area in the kitchen and he started working on the career eventually. I don’t what causes this problem, but you just keep continuing this and the character eventually starts working

    • Hold them near the kitchen counter next to the refrigerator. Don’t drop till you see ‘character sees the kitchen counter’ then drop them but make sure that dialogue is still on the text box (or whatever it is where you get information). See if it works?! 🙂
