How do you get ostriches?
I am really suck on the level where you have to go with the old guy to and do the stuff with the barrels and dynomite (sorry not sure of the name) anyway is the a way to go about it i have restarted like 5 times becuase bandits keep shooting up the town before i can earn enough money to hire someone from the saloon.
Does anyone know how to get past this problem!?
Chezza; if you have issues finding it, let me know, both times I went searching for the hidden stash was a pain in the you know what.
Unfortunately, one of the clues you get to its location is something like three stones, and the map is littered with three stone groupings.
am totally stuck with the saving of lumberjacks and stopping the lumber mills not working?? Have read above how to save the lumberjacks only , North is a female right? only can't seem to see where to build the bridge? Also, do I put the 2 people to work on the lumber mills? AND, is there a way of getting out of quests to go back to my town? So with the lumberjacks I need more info who and where? :-(
Help.. I am at Earthquake quest .. have done everything .. but can't keep happiness over 103.. I have even added an extra building.. Church and graveyard..but nothing. I added flowers.. but everytime the earthquake hits they disappear. Right now all I am doing is keeping everything repaired and buying trees to be able to keep repairing building..lol. I am working two mines and still a just able to keep up. Any help out there...
I need to build a bridge, but don't have enough experience to get to build a lumber mill. Also running low on gold, and my panning mine is petered out. What do I do?
I am at 14 experience. :(
How do you water the flowers I have tried everything, building a well, water tower, and fountain...thank you for any help
Just chose a person, then right-click the flowers.
thank you for the info on the flowers
The Lumberjack one takes a lot of practice, and a little trial and error to figure out where you can put your bridges and where. The most important bit, though, it dynamite. There's one place you can get to by building a bridge that has two charges of dynamite, and that can be used to get to one more place with dynamite. The third charge of dynamite is not absolutely necessary due to the fact that there is a back way or a long way to get around one of the blocks, but the two water blocks have to be destroyed.
My advice on this is to collect what resources you can before you trigger the actual quest, there won't be enough, but there could be enough to let you get a jump start on building bridges. (The first person you talk to gives you the resources to buy one bridge, and the second gives you a good chunk of resources, but the more you start off with, the further you can go).
Initially, you should take all the lumberjacks that you save and put them to work getting you gold and wood, and perhaps have one or two scurry about picking up random supplies like food and the pick up wood and gold.
But once you get a few under your belt, you can use the ones that aren't busy to also build bridges and go searching for other lumberjacks, that will save you some time.
As for the rest of the management, don't worry too much. You just need to keep resources coming in, if you run out of food and or water, it won't matter too terribly much because you shouldn't be in this quest long enough to have people quit on you or become drunks. Just make sure you have a fresh lumber camp running, and that you have someone mining gold at all times. If your panning mine goes under, find some minable rocks, and get to it.
If you are low on experience points, you can build them in small increments by completing the small quests provided by the Trading Post and the Sheriff's Office. Each completion gives you gold, food, wood, and/or points, depending on the level. Completing other side quests, or building/upgrading your town can give you experience points too. Increasing happiness gives you some as well. Keep trying! Even little things can help.
Any ideas, I have all 3 ranches and have not gotten the ostriches, is there something else you need to do to trigger the event?
Hats - I am missing 5, 6 & 7.
Any one know what the two other general store items are?
Can someone please help?I am at the town's treasury quest....i have to find out who is stealing the town's money and i don't know what to do.....how can i find out who is stealing the money?
you all have been a great help with your posts but i got stuck lol . i have found 14 easter eggs but just can't seem to find the last one i have looked all over the map and can't find the landslide to look for the tree stump to the right side.
I am stuck. I have to build a bridge for two lumberjacks however get build a bridge without a lumber mill. Don't have enough experience points (only have 11). Any help I have been stuck for hours
Nope still can't save all the lumberjacks or the lumber mines and I used 2 dynomites up at the top of the screen to save 2womenjacks, so couldn't blow up bolders in water, saying that couldn't see how to get into water anyway?? So what I need is who 1st etc!! pls and what to do about the lumbermills?? it's driving me crazy now...
Where is the Mechanic? Is he hiding or could the bandits kill him off?
JIGUEST .. this was listed earlier and may help you To find out who is stealing the town's money......fire the mayor, but you have to fire him twice.
I am not there yet still stuck on building a lumber mill to get a bridge.
i have no idea what to do in the pumpkin head town. He turns everyone before I can figure out what to do. Can anyone help me?
For chopping down the largest tree rather than blowing it up you can just build a woodcutters there and employ someone who will cut it down for you, it takes longer but at least you save on some gold, and to kill the bears you first need to build a tannery, hope that helps.
Do you need three people plus yourself to do the "maze" quest for the engine? I had two people with me and I'm kind of stuck that everyone is standing on a hatch to open a door and now I have no one to walk through to the last one. How can I get out of this quest to go get another person?
I had that problem too, for a bit. All I had to do, was back my hero up, then go back to the bridge. Basically, your hero may not be positioned correctly.
Hope this helps!
Hi I need help please. I am stuck on the family rescue mission. I got the horses out of the pen and the smell of the food.. now I need to do something with the wagon. I can't figure it out... Anyone know?
re-tried again and again .... with lumberjacks quest, but nope, even thou reversed things, either don't have enough dynomite or one bridge short. it takes 2 bridges to get the womanjack top of screen, if you do her 1st then you have to use 2 dynomite sticks to get the 2ns womanjack left of her! if you leave her till last, am a bridge short! HELP, pls I need a more info on where to go and who 1st,2nd etc..
I just figured something out! If you want the Easter Egg Quest, buy and employ 2 chicken farms.
I got through the maze quest with me and one other person. You just have to go back and forth between the triggers. It takes a little time to figure out.
1.How do you give Betsy Jackson a new hat at the "Fancy A New Hat" Quest?
2.How do i recover the drill?
Hope someone can answer me....thanks a lot
I am having problems "repairing the outpost". I don't have an option to build a new one. Next to the bridge on my third page of build options is the hat shop, not an outpost. Is the man's broken down cabin the outpost, or is the platform the outpost? Either way, I can't seem to do anything to either.
Also, where is the silver to make a silver ring for Cletus?
Thanks for your help!!
After you build the hat shop, drag Betsy to it. She will get her hat.
Check other posts for the drill.
I have two questions, 1) I have white rabbits in town, but the first one to appear was hiding behind one of my farms, so I destroyed it, built a new one, and now I can't get the rabbit in a box. In fact, the rabbits are now controllable by clicking on them, and are counting when I tab through my lawmen/gunslingers! Am I bugged, and need to go back to a prior save? 2) I failed the smuggling task (I took too long trying to get up lots of extra resources, and he walked off right as I was going to give him the supplies.) Do I need to go back to a saved game there too, or do I not need to finish that one?
Thank you for any help.
Blow up the wagon.that will draw the gunslingers over there. then you can kill them.
I still need help with pumpkin head if anyone can help.please.
I 'm sorry to repeat questions, but I can't seem to increase my population past 40. Also I have all the farms, but not ostrich option. I've done the purple flowers, but no grape seeds. Please could I have some help...Many thanks in advance, Amanda.x
How do you get the last 7 votes and win the election?
I cannot find the blue rocks...help please.
you need a Tannery (with someone employed) before killing bears (you need a blacksmith before tannery). Take some gunslingers with you.
I need help on saving family. I get all distractions done, but when I try to sneak up on horseman with ma/pa, they get killed. Cant seem to move them behind wagon. thanks... love this game!
I didn't finish that one either and it hasn't made a difference.
I can't get to the easter egg in the water by the waterfall. How do I get there?
I had built a bridge and now I can't blow it up so I can walk in the water to get there. What do I do?
The blue rocks are on the right side of the screen above the pond with the submerged cabin.
How do you start a fire to be a distraction on the baron family rescue?
Keep gathering wood. When you have enough, the fire starts.
I really REALLY need help on fools gold!?!
every time a get anywhere bandits come shoot up my town.
Before you seed the gold, build the town with a Saloon. Hire gunslingers for protection. After the town is established, then seed the gold.
I'm on the Resource Smuggling quest, and that Clark guy keeps asking for resources. I've given him all three once, and then he comes back asking for more food. How many more times do I have to give stuff to him?
I have no gold. 2 of my mines are controlled by someone else and the one I did control is out of gold. I am suppose to save the 2 lumberjacks by building a bridge to them but I can't get the mill. So, I guess my question is how do you get more gold when there is no gold around. Also, how do you stop people from being drunks? and lastly, how do you overtake the gold mines so we can pan for gold? Thanks.
Katzchen, he'll keep coming back at least a half dozen times--I lost count, but eventually he does get what he wants and goes away. Just keep giving him what he asks for when you have it.
I'm having fun reading about all the other quests people have gotten to that I'm nowhere near yet. Looks like I have my work cut out for me this weekend!
Finished the game no problem...except for the silver ring...don't know what to look for. Greedy little guy changed his mind on the red flowers...after the whole level at looking around for hours...till I figured I'd start messin around to get em.
To get rid of drunks you need a sheriff's office and a sheriff or deputy.Drag the sheriff or deputy to the drunk and handcuffs will appear. The drunk will totter off to jail to dry out.
You have to have a blacksmith shop and have mined some silver, then you can make the ring.
I am stuck. I am about to go on the find the mechanic quest for about the fourth time, and I keep having trouble because my gunslingers keep being killed (I have 5 including my hero lady). I can't get enough gold in the main town to hire another one, because all my panning mines were taken, and the one in the west is out of gold, and all the rocks and stuff filled with gold are gone. I don't have enough experience to buy the thing to build a goldmine, and every time I go on the quest anyway, the bandits kill all my gunslingers, and then destroy the town. Any help will be much appreciated. Cheers.
Oh and by the way, i dont have enough gold to build a trading post to go on those mini quests either. Cheers.
Start over, but only build two of the gold mines until you get the rest of the town built, then build the third one. You should have the gold to build the saloon and store first, then the saw mill. Build the farms first, be sure you have water. Good Luck!
To rebuild the outpost, left click on the remains of the outpost, it will show the picture of the outpost with a button showing a built outpost (bottom right of your screen). Click that button. You will have to have some gold and wood to repair it. After you rebuild it, you can then also upgrade the outpost to a railroad for faster delivery of resources, AFTER you do the resource quests that is.
Thanks for the tip on the eggs, my last one was completely obscured by a tree I blew it up and there it was! YEY!
So I'm missing the Pirate Hat & the Indian Headress.
The only task I have left is the Earthquake one, then that will allow me to get the votes for Mayor...
I'm trying to play through the whole one this time in one go rather than coming back and doing it all again for unfinished quests.
Thanks for all your help once again.
How do I get a Winery? I already have Grapes.
Also, how do I get a Butter Churn?
You are welcome :)
Did you do the two treasure quests? For them, you should get the pirate hat.
The indian hat you will get after the elections
For the winery you have to complete the smuggler quest
For the butter churn complete all trading post quests
Rescue 5 lumberjacks
First build a bridge to reach the island with two dynamite sticks.
Then build a bridge to the north and save the first lumberjack
Head to west. Blow up the boulder and save the second lumberjack
From there build a bridge to the island with one dynamite stick, you have now two sticks left
Go back to south. Build a bridge to save the female lumberjack
Go in the river and blow up the boulder next to the gold mine and you can save the fourth lumberjack in the south
Continue in the river. Another boulder, use your last stick and blow it off. You can now reach the fifth lumberjack
Someone please helps me!
I can't find hidden supplies. I can't unlock the dynamite or the bridge to go south.
I just finished the game and I'm still down the Pirate hat... what was the second treasure quest? As far as I know I completed everything but if there's one hat missing I have to have missed it, I guess I can't go back now? Man I do not want to start over. I got the one down the well, were they both in this town? One darn hat!
I just looked at my trophies and I didn't complete it. Gees! Also what is the secret trophy?
Your population wont go past 40 it's the max for the game.
I had this issue too you need to plant more and more flower pots till the lady comes to sell the seeds, I had to plant 6, it's purely random
You need to collect all the Easter Eggs, and you must have 3 chicken ranches to trigger the easter egg hunt
You need to mine some silver, have a blacksmith and the rest does itself, it will tell you when you have mined enough silver for the ring
The secret trophy
You have to toss 10 coins in the fountains. For this you will you get the "Generosity Trophy
For me it sounds, like you have the second, but not the first treasure.
The first treasure you find in the first town
A rabbit pulls the treasure chest out of the hole and you need 3 keys to open.
To get all three keys
1. Dynamite the rocks to get them to fall on the switch in the enclosure behind the bandits. The switch will open the gate. Walk into the gate and walk up to the scarecrow. Get key #1
2. Blow up rocks in river in front of pool with fish swimming around the crate. Then build a bridge to the pool. Catch all of the fish swimming around crate. When they are all caught, open crate for key #2.
3. Go back to the area on the left side of the river. Go to a white tree on a hill toward the bottom and near the far left side of this area. Blow up tree and crate falls to ground. Open crate and get key #3.
When you have all keys go to the chest and open it.
help i am stuck on the baron family rescue can someone please tell me how to take out the water tower
Rescue The Baron Family
Try picking up the dynamite in the canyon just above and to the north of where you and your posse appear, you'll need one stick to blow up the wagon and lure some of the bandits away, and the other to get into a corral further round for supplies - not the one with the horses in it, there's one past the bandits camp with medical supplies, guns and wood in it. To open the horse corral, shoot the water tower above it and the doors open sending the horses off and the bandits come to check on them. You need to keep out of sight of the main bandits at all times or you get busted
So... I am stuck on the pumkin head horsey one. Before i get any where all my ppls are turned into pumkin heads. Help Me please!
How do i get the treasure and the key? I've already build a well at the blue rocks.....but nothing happens
For the first treasure please have a look at the post for Liss three posts above yours
For the treasure with the well please have a look at the first page of the comments. There is also a spoiler called treasure
Im not really sure, if I got it right, but if you mean the headless horse man:
You have to fill 3 cemetery with headstones. Buy gunslingers and let them fight the bears till they die. Once 3 are full he will come out.
Please Help!!! I am on the trading post quest where you have to gather 25 food. I built two granarys and gathered 40 food but it still says for me to try again. What am I doing wrong???
help please. i still don't know how to kill bears. please please help. i'm stuck! thank you so much!
This quest has a timelimit - you have to gather the food within 3 minuits
Ok..I figured it out. You have to talk to the guy after you get enough food. For the person wanting to know how to kill a bear, I just shot at him until he killed me and then when I regained my life I did it all over again, I think it took about four times.
I have recovered the drill pieces and am currently fighting off the bandits, only problem is that i dont have a clue on what i should do next?!
thank you so much for the help with the bears. i have 2 more questions please. which part of the map should i plant trees to stabilize the hillside and where are the supplies that is needed for Redd Baron? Thanks a bunch!
1.How do i get in the haunted town?
2.I've found the key.....build the well(about 10 times) at the blue rocks...but i can't find the treasure.......What must i do?I can't enter the well.....
To add on to GaGirl a little bit, if you bring some deputies or gunslingers, it will end up being much faster when you go bear hunting.
hi i love the westward series so glad to see that WW3 is out and we are all enjoying the game. i have a few problems i can not get passed.. any help would be so appreciated and ty in advance to all that help me out.
1. how do you research the gold mine.
2. how do you rescue the lumberjacks.. i already rescued 5 of them and now it is asking to rescue more.
3. where are redd's supplies..
again i say thank you so much.
help again.. i can not find a spot to build a bridge to rescue willy.. where do i put it.. i tried everywhere on the river. ty so much
Help! Where is the rabbit hole and how do you get the rabbit to drag the chest out?
I only have 2 prospectors. How do I complete this trophy?
I, also, realize that I missed the first treasure and I only have the cowboy boots in the general store.
Is there any way to succesfully complete the Save the Farm Quest?
Answers (hopefully) to some other questions:
Not enough points: Sometimes when you build something for the first time, you get points. So try building things that you are able to, but haven't built yet.
Bridges: you can't build bridges until you do the Lumberjack Rescue quest. Once completed, bridges will automatically be unlocked.
Problems building bridges: sometimes when I start a bridge, my hero starts and then suddently it says my hero can't get to the bridge. Back them up and then click on the bridge again.
Redd's supplies are to the south of the river. You can only get there by building a bridge. You can only build bridges once you've completed the Rescue the Lumberjacks Quest. If you've just got his note, keep playing. There are several quests that must be done (and the story has to progress) before you can do the lumberjack quest even. If you've done all that and build your bridge. Near the southeast corner is a gold mine (well, a vein in a wall, you can build a gold mine on it). Redd's supplies are on the platform above this mine. There is an arch just south of the mine... go through there then up to the north onto the platform. There is a rock cluter (the middle one is kind of unusual looking), and as you approach your character will recognize it as Redd's stash.
Lumberjack Rescue Quest:
There seems to be a few ways to go about this. This is mine...
1. Employ the lady that asks for help at the Lumber Mill. Employ the man that offers to help right at the start at the logging camp. Collect the resources that are lying around the immediate area.
2. There is an island with a man on the south side of it and supplies (dynamite, gold) on the north side. Build the first bridge to the north side of this island. Collect the dynamite and other resources.
3. Go into the water by the gold panning. Blow up the first set of rocks with one bunch of dynamite. You are now able to rescue the southmost man. You can just walk up onto his island (the "ramp" is on the north side I believe). As soon as you rescue him, I employ him at the gold panning.
4. Go back into the water, continue north(ish), blow up the second pile of rocks with your remaining dynamite . You can now rescue the man that was on the south side of the island you built your first bridge too (just walk right up onto his island... "ramp" is on the west side). I will usually make him harvest a fallen log or a vein of gold.
5. Back in the water, head north west. There is a ramp that leads out of the water. Go north until you reach water again. Build a bridge to the North side of the water. You can rescue one of the female lumberjacks now and collect the resources around her.
6. There is an island that has resources (more dynamite, gold, lumber). Build a bridge to that island and cross it (south). Collect the resources there.
7. Go back (north) over the bridge. Head East. You will come to a ramp that is blocked at the top by a boulder and two logs. Blow them up with dynamite. Go up the ramp and continue east until you find the 4th lumberjack.
8. By this time, I usually have enough for the last bridge, and since I'm so far away, I just have one of the other lumberjacks build the last bridge to the female lumberjack who is on an island right near the lumbermill.
*** The key for me is to have everyone else gather my resources (except at the very start) while I'm busy rescuing. If the logging camp or the gold panning sinks into the ground, I have the people there chop up fallen logs or pick gold from a vein. And remember, anyone can build a bridge, not just the hero
Rescue the Barons:
1. Blow up the wagon surrounded by dynamite (there's some dynamite west of the wagon).
2. Open the gates to the horses by shooting down the water tower.
3. Head to the camp northeast of the bandits. It will prompt you to collect firewood. When you collect enough, the game will continue (the fire will start).
Researching Gold Mine:
This will be available to research once you've built 3 river gold panning operations and MacAllister has taken over 2 of the 3 of them. One of your townspeople should say something like: "We need more than a river panning... we could build a mine".
You must rescue the Lumberjacks first. Once you have, the two lumberjacks who asked for your help to begin with will ask you to build THEM a bridge to get off their island. You build this bridge to the west (it's the only option I think). Go straight west and Willy is on the West edge of the map.
How do you plant trees?
What key do you use to rotate the view? Are there keyboard shortcuts?
Hold the space bar and move the mouse to rotate the scene
does anybody know how to build a campfire ?
i have to build one for access to the cave!
This question have been asked before, but with no answer, so please answer ?
You need a lamp post to enter the cave
But do you actually get anything good for helping Clark out?
And is anyone else having their game glitch when they try to load a game?
Yes I'm having problems loading. Also it seems to freeze during the game at times.
How do you beat the haunted town quest. Have tried a couple different ways and cannot beat this quest. HELP!! stuck and cant move on
Where do you find the Silver mines to mine silver for the Ring?? I saw the post saying you need the blacksmith and when you mine enough silver it does the rest. However, I dont know where the silver mine is??
Planting trees requires a general store. From there you can research planting trees from the experience screen. Then all you have to do is buy the tree saplings, and use them like you would use the dynamite.
How can i trigger the haunted town quest? I only need seven more votes but the side quest won't show up. I have all other quests done up to this point even the sheriff and trading post quests but it won't show up. I have the headless horseman too. Can anyone help?
The silver is on the ground and looks like gold only silver.
I am having difficulties in the Mines Maze. Obtaining the dynamite is not a problem and blowing up the mine entrances are all completed. Found Dow Jones gravestone while exploring.
My questions is this: What is the correct sequence for completing the Mines Maze (2nd Town) in order to advance and rebuild. Any help or "spoiler" would be helpful.
To access the cave in the second town, you need a lamp post not a fire.
Anyone know how to increase your population past 40? I can't figure it out. Thanks
The exact sequence is a little tough to describe, but...
The correct starting point, from the trapper who offers you dynamite for pelts is the entrance with snow blocking directly to the north of where the trapper is hanging out.
From there you are going to want it's trial and error, but you will come to one point where, when you go through the mine entrance, it'll drop you directly into an area with another mine entrance in the wall not far from where you entered, and a little to the northeast there will be a little depression with a mine entrance in the middle of it (sans wall).
When you get to that part, instead of entering either of the two new mine entrances, you want to go back into the one you came from. It will not take you to where you came from, but instead will drop you to another area requiring another mine entrance that needs to be cleared. Going through that mine entrance will take you to the way out.
I hope that helps, and apologize for it being so vague.
I am stuck on the Mechanic quest. I have repaired the town but now I am supposed to blast the blockage to distract the bandits away from the gate so I can get in the gate. I can't get any dynamite, why can't I buy it in the general store? It says "sold out" and there is no dynamite on the ground anywhere.
Thank you for your help!
Beth, give it a little time and more dynamite will become available to sell. The stock replenishes itself every 3-5 min or so.
JIGuest, isn't 40 the max population? i know i read it here on a previous post. i think.
