Welcome to the wonderful world of YoVille! There are many things you will learn throughout your time in YoVille, and these are some of the basics that will help to get you started!
Once you have finished choosing your gender and your home, the next thing you should do, is get familiar with the different places in YoVille. The different places you should look for are the Widget Factory, Alton Towers, the Casino, and the many different stores. You can go to these places by clicking on the world icon on your screen. Clicking on this icon will open the YoVille map. Hover around the places in the map to know what they are.
Changing Your Clothes
Once you have taken a peek at what the Yo World looks like, it is time to dress up your character. You chose starter clothes when you created your Yo Person. These clothes can be changed when you head to the Clothing Store and buy new clothes to change into.
If you want to change into the clothes that you bought, simply click on the sunglasses icon . Once you click the icon, a box will show up with your YoVille avatar on the right and your options for changing your appearance on the left. When you are in this screen, you will have two options to choose from. You can either change your clothes or change your body appearance, or perhaps do both at the same time.
The first tab you will see will be called “Change Clothes“. This is where you can add accessories (purses/handhelds), change your clothes, change into a costume, or just simply change your hat! There will be categories listed on the left which are able to be clicked and viewed. This will help you decide what you have available to wear.
Changing Your Appearance
Changing your appearance is a simple task and can be done by hitting the sunglasses icon on your YoVille screen. To change your appearance, simply click on the “Edit Face” tab.
This is where you can change your skin tone, eye color, lip shape/color, and even change your hairstyle, and put on make up. There are many different hair styles and colors available when you first start out. If you haven’t found something you like, you can always check out the Salon and “rent” hair or purchase a new ‘do to keep. Also, another feature Zynga added was the ability to shop for clothes anytime while trying to change your appearance. On the right side, above your YoVille avatar, you will see a box that is labeled “Shop for Clothes“.
If you click it, you will be able to see the clothes available in the Fashion Store and try them on. If you like what you see and have the yocoins or yocash to buy the stuff, you can purchase it right from that screen. The same thing is available for purchasing hair in the “Edit Face” screen, provided you clicked on the “hair” tab.
Collecting more coins is important as well. There are many ways to make coins in YoVille. However, the most common one is collecting pay in the Widget Factory. You can take yourself to the factory by clicking the the world icon on your screen, and then clicking on the Widget Factory on the map that pops up. Once you are inside the factory, you can click on the time clock to collect your pay. After you collect your pay, make sure you click on the little icon on the top of your screen (if you are playing via Facebook) to ask for more energy. Energy will help you be able to clock in more than once every four hours, provided your friends send you those Nitros (energy drinks) you asked for. When you first clock in, your pay will be only 200 yocoins. As you progress with adding neighbors, the pay will increase up to 600 coins, but this will only happen if you have 200 neighbors. You can ask your friends to join your crew, or you can Looking For YoVille Neighbors by clicking HERE.
Coin Running/Visiting Your Neighbors
The Widget Factory isn’t the only way to make yocoins. You can visit your neighbors daily. There is a cap on collecting coins at 25 neighbors though. When you are first starting it is important to do your friend visits and leave messages. When you leave messages, you will receive between 15 -20 yocoins per visit. That adds up over time! The message you want to leave will depend on you. You could leave something simple like “cr” (coin run) or use a funny quote. YoVillians use all sorts of messages for their coin runs, so be creative!
Another easy way to collect yocoins is to visit the Casino. Each day you log into YoVille, you will collect a free spin (or many if you log in daily). Definitely go to the Casino and use that up! If you can manage to collect at least 3 spins, your payout will be much better. The payouts range from 30 yocoins (using three spins) to a million yocoins! Who couldn’t use a million yocoins?
You can also visit the YoMotor Speedway, to take a chance on winning a race against your crew mates to win yocoins. You can also wager a bet on a Yorace and make even more yocoins, but be careful not to gamble all your yocoins away!
The last way to collect more yocoins is to head to the Pier at the Beach. You will have a chance to “out fish” two people on your crew.
Decorating Your Home
Once you have your pay, you are now ready to start decorating your apartment. You will notice the chair icon at the bottom part of your screen. That is the “Edit Room” icon. You can use that to open your inventory and move things in and out of it. You can also shop from home using the Edit Room icon. The only things you cannot buy from shopping at home are wallpapers and floors. You can, however, buy these at the Yo Depot. When you start leveling up, you will get more rooms added on to your apartment. For now, you will have the four basic rooms; living room, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom.
Now it’s time to get out and enjoy the world of YoVille!
