@beth

you need someone working at your general store, then it wil replenishes thestock in a couple of minutes.

Bears
You need to just keep shooting, they don't die easily, I let me hero take care of them and he'll get killed about 4 times before the bear finally dies.

Haunted Town

You need to place a lamp post outside the entry to the cave that will allow you to enter

Silver Mines

They look the like the gold mines (the ones you can mine by hand) and they are grey, there is one in the SE corner and one in the NE corner, there may be others but these are the ones I can remember

I feel crazy asking this question but....in the trading post quest how do you gather water....thanks for the help

Reply

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.

Rescuing the Baron family

I've blown up the wagon, released the horses, collected the supplies and firewood, started the campfire and tempted away all but one bandit on horseback. I don't seem to be able to get rid of him, or approach him from any direction. What am I missing?

Reply

I'm stuck in the final quest of trading post challenge, after playing it over and over, I still get the notification from the lady that I should collect in O second and the pop up message appears like a menu to try again or back to town (something like that).
Please help.

Ps: Sorry about my language. I'm from Indonesia.

I would appreciate anyone who could help me. I am stuck in ghost town. I cannot rebuild the cemetery. Bandits are killed. Church is ok. Someone mentioned headstones, but I do not know where to find them. Have a good year everyone. Thank you in advance

Sorry for the multiple posts--my computer froze and then decided to post the submission multiple times.

I'm doing the sunken treasure quest, found the key in the water cave and built a well in the ring of blue rocks, but nothing's happening. Am I missing something?

Also, what is the first treasure quest I've seen posts on? Where is the rabbit that drags the chest out of a hole and how do I find him?

Thanks for the help!

Reply

The first treasure is in the first town. You have to build three farms and have them all grow carrots. Once the rabbit appears, drag it to the small hole on the left by the gold pile. The rabbit will drag out the treasure chest. You can then go about finding the three keys.

How do you get the key out of the water cave?

Are you talking about the town McAlister and Willy swindled the townspeople out of or the new one where they resettled? If the first town is the one everyone was evicted from, then I'm sunk because I'm way past that and working on the second town where the Barons settled. Have I lost that quest without realizing it?

yes, it's the first town we were swindled out of.

hi everyone.. loving the hints and tips..

i have a problem which i hope someone can help me with

i am at the stage where i had to research a gold mine.. got the mine the blacksmith and i dont have the bridges yet. my question is the only gold mine i see is right near the edge of the water with a rock in front of it.. the last time i tried to use dynomite on the big rock the gold mine vein disappeared.. now i am there again after restarting and i need help on how to build that mine. unless i am in the wrong spot to build the mine... again no bridges yet.. i dont want to try and blow up the rock again and have to start over yet again.. can someone please help .. ty ty ty

You need a sawmill and be able to build bridges first.

I restarted so I could do the treasure quest but the treasure chest no longer appears be hind the gated area in the first town. Can I do the quest without opening the chest?

Reply

Grace, you can try putting the dynamite further away from the rock, that worked for me on WW2. Look for rocks w/veins in them jutting out from the sides of cliffs also. You can put the mines there. Usually you will be able to find a couple around the map.

Boopbug, i am big on the tycoon-type games, and love both Chocolatiers and all 3 Build-A-Lots. i haven't tried Nancy Drew yet, but i'm always up for new games to try. Thanks for all the help, i saw posts about putting a lamp outside the cave, but wasn't sure what everyone was talking about.

ok, defeated Mr. Pumpkinhead, got the votes and won the election. now all i need is the sunken treasure quest, but it's 1am and i'm calling it quits for the night. feel free, anyone, to post any suggestions for me on how to complete that quest. i'm totally grateful for all the help, thanks!

Hi there, I have read all the comments but I really need someone to tell me step by step how to get through the Earthquake quest and the one where you have to dynamite the barrels for the fake gold.

In the pumpkinhead man quest you have to build a cemetery around the graves where you defeated the bandits. There are 3 such spots. Its important to build them there.
On my first try i build them randomly and then it doesnt work.

Nevermind I got the rabbit got the treasure... still need hints on how to get an extra prospector?

is this a clitch in the game...the trading post quest ask me to gather 20 water....how do you gather water? thanks a bunch for the answer...

@Liss

When there is no prospector running around anymore in your town, you only have the possibility to blow up one or more of your houses. When the people get mad and leave the town. Rebuilt the houses and hope the best, that now a prospector is coming into the town

Hi all,
Am loving WW3. Thanks to Kayleigh for all her help too....She's a wiz at this one!

For all of you having trouble with groups of bandits (and perhaps not enough $ to buy any)

I found that if I went up to the group slowly I could get one bandit to follow me a little way from the rest. Shoot this guy and then go get another and do the same. Saves money on gunslingers and really helps in the Wanted Poster missions.

Good luck all.

Earthquake Quest

  • Save very often, specially as soon as you builded something. After an earthquake, you can restart at this point. Some people saved every minuit. Like this is will take long, but its a safe way.

  • Make sure that you have plenty of wells so that you can put the fires out fast. That is really important

  • Start with the basics. Farm, lumber and gold. Work your way up to having 2 at farm 2 wood and 2 gold. When you have enough, build your lumber mill and do the fortification. This will help a lot.

  • Slowly build up and fix everything as soon as you can. . Then when you have your 20 people and a good supply of wood and gold, build as many luxury items as you can to make the happiness. Do the luxury items last since they get destroyed really easily.

Tips on the haunted town.

The one tip on the haunted town that seems to help the most people through is the realization that you don't have to feed the people.

Build tents to get a nice stock of civilians up, but don't worry about feeding them, or even employing them beyond what you need to keep your wood and gold coming in.

You may worry about people getting mad and leaving, but if they do, they should be replaced with another citizen, so you should be in the clear.

Still, keep an eye on your population, and if you get down to two or three uninfected, build a few more tents to bring it back up some.

BOOPBUG tnx a million, the comment on how to rotate the view helped me find my last easteregg.
Don't suppose there is a way to keep it rotated so i can get to gold behind buildings where i killed bandits?

GRACE: in case you had the same idea i had : the little veins on the ground are for manual mining. the goldmines go up against the walls of the mountains and show different veins.

Reply

Gold Mine Research: I'm pretty sure that you have to be able to build bridges first since all of the gold mines are across the river (in either direction).

Hiring gunslingers: you need a saloon (and someone employed there) to hire them. You can only hire three at a time. But when one dies, you can hire another one (a replacement basically). AND, you can hire three gunslinges per saloon. So if you build three saloons you can hire nine gunslingers. Same goes for deputees (but you can only have one sherriff).

Save the Farm Quest: I didn't find a way to beat it (I'm pretty sure it's impossible given the storyline). BUT, in one of my attempts, I discovered that if you have all of your money in a bank, McAllister can't take the 200$ from you when he comes to claim his gold mines and the gold you've already taken from it.

anita i see the small deposits of gold mines on the ground but i have to build a gold mine on one of the cliffs and the only jutt out of a gold mine i see is blocked by a huge rock. when i try to blast the rock away the gold mine vein disappears and since i have not gotten to the bridge quest yet i don't have bridges to build. so i am totally lost and stuck on the mind buidling quest until i find the right mine to build on... the only one i see that i can get to without the bridge is the one near the water's edge with the huge boulder blocking it.. if there is another one can someone please tell me. if not then how do i remove the boulder without destroying the mine. can not continue with game until i get past this.. please please help.. been looking all over the map where i can go.. ty ty ty

I know this might be easy for a lot of people but how the heck do you forge a silver ring?

You have to do the bridge quest first. Once you can build bridges, you can then build the mine.
