Upgrades are a new feature in Virtual Villagers: Origins. It currently consists of three different upgrades, which are bought with tech points. To upgrade a villager, the player must click on details, and select their villager. Once they have decided which one to upgrade, press the "Upgrade Me!" button and buy any of the upgrades, if you have enough tech points.
The "Grant Youth" upgrade is available for 50000 Tech points. It lowers any villager's age by 35 years!
Grant Full MasteryEdit
The "Grant Full Mastery" upgrade is available for 100000 Tech Points. It masters all of the skills of any villager.
The "Grant Running" upgrade is available for 40000 Tech Points. It makes any villager like running, and it will run instead of walk.
