Amy,

Look above #12 in the alcove. I think...The numbers are off on the walkthrough hints for some reason.

Please Help with Sandbox Mode

Is it at all possible to get the...

winery and butterchurn

... in sandbox mode?

It would be more fun to build it all.

Also, after the bandit showdown, is there a genuine end? It says "You can keep playing to see how long you last."

Does that mean there are no other quests once you complete the main one?

Reply

Can someone please tell me what the last special item to be sold in the store is? I have the boots and the cheese. thax so much.

Reply

amy - the other item is

wine. Access to the winery is opened by completing the Resource Smuggling quest at the beginning of the second town.

Reply

elle - i believe that after you complete the main quest, it leaves the game open to finish all the side quests and open the secret items.

Reply

Either I've ran into a glitch or there doesn't seem to be any side quests after you complete bandit showdown. And without the other quests, there is no way to get at least one of the hidden luxary items. That's too bad.

When is Westward IV coming out?

;)

Reply

Elle, what hidden luxury items are you referring to? Do you mean the three items sold in the General Store? Or the ostriches, wineries, and butter churns? Check the walkthrough guide for tips on how to get these items.
Once the sandbox quests are completed, that is is for trophies.
And yes, they can't create WW4 fast enough for me, too!

I am having a really hard time with the rusty bucket challenge. I lost count as to how many times I re-started! My gunslingers keep getting killed by the bears, and the bears keep destroying the farm and granery! The wolves aren't much better. The bandits are bad too. Please help give me some tips!

Reply

JIGuest - How many gunslingers do you have? I tried to have my hero help with the fighting as much as possible in this quest. You might want to heal your gunslingers between fights if you can afford it too.

Hi,
I'm new to Westward 3 and I was wondering what ways can I gain experience points. Right now I'm on the Con the Swindler quest and I'm just confused.

on the westward trading quest what foods do u need to make for the first one an how in only 3 mins iv treid it all an never win.

Reply

Is there any other hidden character/object aside of the hats, headless horseman, winery, butterchurn, ostriches and grapes that can be unlocked by doing certain things suring the game?

Does anybody know if something happens by hiring several $150 gunslingers? Same inquiry about getting several chubby woodcutters.

Cheers.

My town keeps starving. Can anyone help me with that? I've fished all of the rivers/ponds and my farm and ranch don't seem to be producing. I have a windmill and a smokehouse. HELP!!

Reply

joe - usually for the food quests i just build enough granaries so my storage capacity is high enough, and then fish or hunt until i have enough food. good luck!

Reply

katie - can you say more about what's happening? maybe your water supply isn't sufficient, or you don't have enough workers? try changing your crop to corn to increase your output.

Hey. So Im on the quest to deposit 800 gold in the bank but I am at 27 experience and need 3 more experience to build the bank. Ive finished all the side quests including the sheriff quests and trading post quests...I also built all of the buildings I could and I still don't have the needed experience...Tips please? Thanks : )

Reply

Kimberly - Unfortunately, all the things you listed would have been my suggestions... you may have to back up and be more careful about how you spend your experience points... But please post if you figure out another way to get experience!

Regarding "Problems with the well":

I believe this is a user error, not a bug. If you don't have the key yet, the hero will not go down the well. I made this error the second time through and was getting very frustrated when I realized I hadn't retrieved the key yet. Once you grab the key, the hero goes right down.

Reply

I am doing the quest with the fires and earthquakes and have done pretty well so far, but despite having room for 20 people in my hotels, no more than 15 people will come to town. I have plenty of food and jobs, but can't figure out how to get more people to come so that I can get up to 20 and get rid of the "low population" counting against my town happiness. Why won't more than 15 people come?

Reply

Meredith- You need a sheriff's office to have a population of more than 15.

Reply

We have just added screenshots for the locations of all the Easter Eggs. Check the walkthrough at the top of the page under "Location of Easter Eggs."

Thanks to Eileen for providing the screenshots!

Reply

Twish,
To kill the bears, hire a sherriff and deputies, and/or a couple of gunslingers and take ALL of them to gang up on the bears. I only got the lawmen and we killed all three of them. I suppose we can only gang up on them because they are so big. Hope this helps!! Oh, be sure you have a tannery built and employed so you can get the pelts for the bears before you go shooting them!

Happy Gaming!!

Reply

callalili - to get the pirate hat,

complete both treasure quests.

Reply

I have all of the hats except, apparently, the fruit one. How do I get it?

Also, for trading post challenges where you have to round up people:

If you destroy the tents after the trading post worker collects them, you can frequently get wood out of it and then you don't have to worry about feeding 12 people. I usually destroy tents so that I only have housing for five people and that's what will fill up.

I've found that this helps, especially when you need to gather wood.

Reply

@Gill, regarding not being able to find any deer: it didn't look like your question had been answered and I had the same problem, so here is my solution:

To get more deer:

To get deer when there are none, I've found that killing rabbits works. Perhaps there is a wildlife quota or something, but I killed several rabbits and then deer appeared to replace them.

Thus, I finally finished that quest. Hope this helps, and this site has saved me loads of headaches over the past few weeks, so thanks to everyone who contributes!

This may be a silly question, but in the New Trade Route quest, it says I have to rebuild the outpost. Ss there a specific place I have to rebuild it? I tried rebuilding an outpost just anywhere and it doesnt work! Help!

There is an old outpost on the wagon trail to the north. Click on it, and an icon will pop up that lets you rebuild if you have enough materials.

How do I choose the best profession? I have completed all three tasks, but can't figure out how to choose the best one? I have trie clicking on each person, but that doesn't seem to work.

Reply

Angusbaby: to pick the best profession,

Each one should have a speech bubble and when you click on it, the person will ask you whether you think their profession is the best and you click "Accept" (I think) to choose their profession. It doesn't matter really which one you pick, although the lumberjack will give your lumber camp a slight boost if employed there. If there are no speech bubbles, have you sent your hero over to where they are?

Reply

Hi, everytime I finished rescuing the lumberjacks, I returned to town finding that the "Save the Farm" quest failed (with a big X in the box). What could I have done to have got that?

Thanks a million

(Please forgive me if someone had already asked this and answered.) I don't want to read too much and spoil the game. Thank you.

You can also kill a bear if you have got a lot of time with your hero alone. The hero "dies" three times but then the bear dies. This saves on the hired guns. T

there is a chest in the small cave IN the river. drag your hero there and it will appear.

to rebuild the outpost,

Yes, I have the request to repair it. I just don't know where the outpost it??? There is a shack at the upper left hand of the screen with a man standing by it. is that it?

Reply

Yes I've planted the trees. I must be blind. There is a station, but when I click on it I can't do anything.

Also, the key.....I blocked the small cave with a bridge. Can't blow it up or move it. Is that the cave your talking about?

Reply

Hi. I'm having a problem with defeating McAllister at the very end of the game. I defeated the bandits and destroyed the wagons at 4 of the places: the west side by the tall tree, the southwest side, the south side, and the east side in the trees near the cave to the haunted town. My problem is I destroyed the bandits on the road to the north, near where the train crosses the river, but it won't let me destroy th wagon. When I click on it, it doesn't do anything or have the red enemy line over it or anything. I tried closing Westward and starting it back up, but still the same thing. I had saved at different points, but all of my saves were after McAllister started attacking the town. I'm not going to restart the whole game over just to get to this point. :(

Reply

How on earth do you gain knowledge points?

Reply

Katie - when you click on the outpost, it should open an options menu on the bottom part of the screen. it's similar to when you click on a farm and can choose the food type. this is actually how you can destroy your bridge as well - click on it, and a demolish button with a bomb icon should appear in the menu.

Also my town is starving despite having two farms and a pig farm as well. I'm assuming the starving is caused by no water.

I am in the side quest for the Trading Post, and they are asking for 45 food. I start with 20 and to increase the base number I have added a farm, but that only gave me a total of 25. If I try to get enough resources to build another farm the time runs out.

Also, when I have acquired over 20 food, it does not show. Help please!

I just started Westward 3 yesterday and I'm having a problem with the 1st trading post challenge. I apologize if this has been asked before, but if I read all the posts I'll find out tons of things that I DON'T want to know yet. Spoiler tags or not, you find out how to do things you didn't even know you were going to need to do, just by seeing the answers to other people's questions. I know it can't be helped, it's just the price of getting questions answered, but I just started and I don't want to know all that stuff.

Anyway, my problem is this: I am supposed to get 25 food in 3 minutes. I built a farm, 2 graineries and have been hunting and gathering and fishing. When the final second of the 3 minutes ticked off I had 45 food, yet it still said I failed the challenge. What am I missing here? Is this a glitch of some kind?

BTW, to gameyjane, I had the same problem until I realized there was another arch at the very bottom of the screen. it leads into a round area where you can climb up the ridge. The boulders are on that ridge, not the ridge by the river.
