I need a little help, please. I have 16 stables, and I don't know how to get my sherriff off fo his horse! Will the black horse be in the stable when I build it? Or do I have to check out each stable individually?

Firstly I would like to thank everyone for all the helpful hints that have been posted on here. This site is fab!

I am a little stuck on the Jake for mayor quest. How do I get him to become mayor in the first place? Do I have to build him a town hall or a bank?

And a huge warning to anyone who has just started playing this game....it's totally addictive! Love it though ;o)

Hi everyone, I am having some trouble with the Find McAllister quest, I have destroyed 3 wagons so far and Polly keeps saying not here lets check the others but I have scanned my map completely and the fourth wagon is not there, do I need to do something else before it will appear or what.

Please help me!
I cannot get through the stupid maze. I got to the other side of the bridge. Thought I was done, but it won't move on. This is really frustrating!

[Have you checked the cave maze instructions in the Tips and Hints section located at the top of this page? -Pam]

Not sure if this went through already.
I REALLY need help getting through the maze! I make it the other sude of the bridge but thats it. What do I need to do? It's really frustrating!

If you are having trouble starting the game again try restarting your computer. I had this problem and restarted my computer and was able to start the game again with no problem.

Help Please....
Free the horses: I've tried this many times. I shoot at the water tower and cursor turns into a gun but nothing ever happens. I love this site!!! Thanks....

Reply

Diane and Jess39 - When you are rebuilding the outpost you don't select the "repair" action from your hero; you click on the remains of the outpost, then in the lower right of the screen where the action box is, there will be a square button showing a built outpost; click on that. If you have the 140/140 supplies needed to rebuild it will automatically rebuild the outpost. Your hero isn't needed to rebuild the outpost. Hope this helps.

RE: Drilling for documents

I am totally stuck! Please help...
how do I drill into the bank vault??

Reply

can someone please help me with a simple quest but i can not figure out how to do it.

i need to get the crate away from the bandits.. it is locked up and i can not figure out how to get the crate.. it is on the pages with the professional jobs. there are alot of tasks there i have to do which is the silver ring which i did.. the biggest tree which i did.. etc etc..

please help me how to get the crate..
ty so so much
grace

Reply

premorie, you have to either right-click on the target so your hero will shoot it, or click on the gun and drag it to the water tower so your hero shoots it. the target has to be indicated or nothing happens.

ej, drag the mechanic to the side of the bank and the drill will appear and start drilling.

grace, once the bandits are killed, there's nothing stopping you from going up to the crate and clicking on it to take it. i'd recommend you have a posse with you when you do this, otherwise it will take forever. more guns will get the job done faster. post again if you're still having trouble, someone will try to help.

Hey, everybody,

I'm on my third incarnation in this game (the first 2 attempts were without help), and I'm stuck on a couple of things in the first town.

The black horse --

I got the black horse with the very first stable I built, and put the sheriff on it. I got a trophy for sheriff on a horse (or something like that). Is there anything more to this?

The Easter Egg hunt --

I've got 2 chicken farms but I don't see any prompt about starting the hunt, nor do I see any Easter eggs. Am I missing something? Is this maybe for the 2nd town?

The silver ring --

I have a blacksmith. I waited until I had him to mine the 4 silver deposits around the first town. Now they're all gone, but there's nothing about a silver ring. From what I've read here, the ring is just created spontaneously when there's enough silver. Am I missing something? Is this also maybe a 2nd town thing?

Thanks for your help! You guys are the best!

you should have built a trading post. that way you could have traded some of your other resources for food, wood or gold.

I know there are already a million posts about the hidden supplies, but I simply can NOT find them. I have blown everything up. I have walked throught the entire river, all around the stone arch, etc. Exactly where is it? There are several posts that say different things. I have tried everything and can't find it. I'm sure I'll feel stupid after I do find it, but I am baffled!! HELP.

You go through the stone arch to that small area. On the north side there is a little hill to the plateau just above. If you walk up the hill to the cluster of three stones on the plateau, you will get the hidden supplies.

Misspurpleladi:

Yeah, I should've. But I restarted it so things went better this time.

But I have a new problem: Fool's Town quest. Bandits keep attacking the town and shoot down buildings. It's the worst when they shoot down the Trading Post, which is the only source of gold. I don't have enough resources to rebuild any of the fallen buildings or to hire gunslingers.

I've restarted this quest 3 times. Help?

Reply

charmous:

I had to patiently wait for my town to grow. Here's one tip: when you start, start out with only a few neccesary buildings. Rack up on resources. As soon as you have enough to expand and prosper, build more bulidings and increase your population. You should have no problem by then. Also, remember to keep wells near your buildings.

ok here is a question for you all.. hope someone can answer it.. on the page where you have to build the hotel.. find the white rabbit.. where you go for the haunted town..et etc there is a guarded post with a box in it that has gold.. i notice there is a switch to step on to get the door open but dont know how to get to it since it is inside the fort.. how do you open the door to get the gold box.. does anyone know.. ty so much

Jae, look for a cave entrance in the upper left area of the map. drag bunny over there and he will go inside and bring out the chest.

Blow up the tree to the left of the area where you see the switch. The tree will fall and you will be able to get to the chest.

Does anyone know where the 5 gold barrels that you purchase for $50 so that you can blow them up and how to place them. In the quest where you are rebuilding a town to look like it has gold? I have done everything I can think of and replayed this 4 times but I still don't see the gold barrels that I purchased from him.

Reply

here are a few tips i have learned on the first town since i had to restart once or twice before you build the tents for anyone gather the resources yourself chop the logs mine the gold etc set up the well,granery farm and lumber camp. when the guy comes and you have your farm and lumber camp setup he asks for either 25 food or 50 wood the food gives you carrots which is 10 exp points
the wood gives you the log cabins which is 15 exp points wait til you gather the wood give it to him your saving an extra 5 exp points and i also leaned to setup a genral store as soon as possible and plant trees unlock that early to keep lumber guy in business
hope this helps someone

Reply

you don't see the barrels til you take them to the red arrows and have a stick of dynamite to blow it up with and another tip for that town is save often so when bandits come restart after you rebuild any building and hire 1 gunslinger

Reply

Jillian...you walk thru that stone arch and up the hill to your left.There is a large boulder...just click your guy to go there...click right ON the boulder.it should say that you've found the stash. Hiope that helps!!! Now onto me...I have read EVERY possible post I can find about the lumberjacks....and I still can't find em. I have met the guy and gal on the little island and they have given me the quest. I have SCOURED the whole map and all I see out of the ordinary are the bandits hideout, a large wooden wall with a door and behind that what looks to be a steel trapdoor in the ground, and a pond with a large red fish in it guarded by a wolf...where in the world are these traspped lumberjacks?!

Okay, I've played the entire game through twice and gotten stuck at the same point. I can't get to the haunted town. I have one of every building, one of each type farm and ranch. I have built a slew of lampposts all around the train cave and the other cave slightly to the south and east of the train cave. I've completed all trading post, outpost, and bounty request missions. Now everyone just goes about their daily business but it won't send me to haunted town for those last 7 votes...Ack...help me!

Reply

Hi Kim. There is a tunnel, and if you go there it says something like "it's too dark to explore here'. It's near the top of the screen (in the heavily wooded area with all the animals and the pond). Put a lamp post outside of there and it will let you explore. It leads to the haunted town.

Reply
Misspurpleladi January 11, 2009 4:24 AM

To Friday:

Try to restart the quest. Eventhough the quest recommends that you have six civilians try getting seven or eight, if possible, by building tents. You can't mine gold so your going to have to use wood as your main resource and use the trading post to exchange for gold. You will need to build two lumber camps. One camp will be on the far right of the map, the other will be on the far left. As soon as you build up enough resources and trade them to buy a gunslinger that should be the first thing you buy. Then your gunslinger can help with bandits and animal attacks. And save the game frequently. So whenever there is a bandit attack you can restart from point before the attack. You will be better prepared for another attack. And for five gold your gunslinger can get a health boost from the saloon.

Hope this helps!

Hi Gamingmom,

I hope this helps....

The black horse part is for the guy who wants everything for his wife...silver ring, red flowers etc, you have to build stables until a black horse arrives...I had to build 6, but I know others have build more and less, as soon as a black one appears, he takes it and you get a brown one in return......

The silver ring is with the second town as is the horse, you have to mine silver ore and blacksmith takes it and makes a ring, and man takes it.

If you are reading 'spoilers' to help you with your town try not to read too far on, or you'll get confused...I did!!....

And have no idea about easter eggs as haven't done that bit yet....

Have fun ;o)

This game is indeed addicting. Have appreciated the hints and walkthrough which have aided me along the way. Just got Jake elected Mayor, completed all the pop up quest so far except for finding that last dern easter egg. I did refer to the list and checked every of those locations but still no luck. Know this is a longshot but is there any that are especially hard to find, or not visible when doing the search? Any tips appreciated.

hi to kill a bear you bring your hero near the bear.. click on your hero and his box will come up.. click on the gun icon.. and then on the bear or animal you want to kill. your hero will die many times before the bear is killed.. it takes a bit of patience.. but the bear will die.. just repeat the steps i told you and you should be fine.. hope this helps.. gl

The rabbit hole is really a cave entrance not a hole

Top of river running north/south is wide pond - below that is recessed area with cave entrance - this is the rabbit hole.

I also went to scarecrow and saw no response but when I had gathered the other 2 keys it said solved and allowed me to open the chest.

Designer trophy - hats - you have to get people to buy one of each hat then you get trophy.

Reply

TRADING POST QUESTS

Best advice

1) get items needed early
2) save game
3) resume game and click for next requirements
4) load saved game and use remaining time getting head start on next requirement
5) repeat above

PLEASE help me get boots - been thru game completely 2 times with maxed out bank and population of 44 and can't get boots

SHERIFF POSTER QUESTS

Create multiple sherriff offices and hire multiple deputies.

Each deputy increases your town happiness and ensures victory on your quests.

I usually have 20+ deputies and they raise the happiness about 60 points.

After the quests are done I destroy all but one office.

Cate, thanks for the tip on the hats! Now, another question--can you get the three prospectors trophy playing sandbox or do i have to replay the game from the first town to get it?

JIGuest, i think i got the butter churn after doing all the trading post challenges. if anyone can confirm, i'd appreciate it. i've been playing this game for weeks and it's all starting to blur together!

Reply

I don't think sandbox accomplishments count in trophy areas - I have tried same thing and it didn't.

Start of town 1 - where prospector is in river - DON'T take his nugget (the one next to his supply bag) and he will stay in town.

Only other way to get prospectors is luck of the draw - keep making houses until you get them.

BUTTER CHURN AWARDED ONLY WHEN YOU HAVE DONE ALL THE TRADE POST QUESTS - Only way to get it - and then if you have 3 cow ranches and build 3 churns you get cheese hat and cheese in store -

STILL waiting for someone to tell me how to get boots - I can't be only one with that glitch.

Unless there's one dark colored easter egg out there, or if you can blow it up think I'm going to have to restart and try again with the list in front of me this time. Problem is I had found all but 2 before I printed the list so hard to remember where I got them from. Did a small grid search and finally out of frustration sent my hero out with loads of dynamite and blew up every tree and rock in the place and never saw a sign of any eggs, and yes I already got the one from the water. Anyone else lose an egg? I'm still trying to figure out if there's any way I possibly missed it, or if it's a glitch.

Have some other character click on it - it goes easier and rabbit is crated. Then you take your main character click on crate.

BOOTS IN STORE

I finally figured it out - to get boots in store you need manned blacksmith and manned tannery and 1 cow ranch.

Reply

HAT/DESIGNER TROPHY

After you have all the hats - you have to get people to buy all of them - then you get trophy.

Reply

HARDEST EGG/OSTRICH EGG

14 of the eggs are brightly colored and fairly easy to find.

The hardest one and the one that gives you ostriches is square white egg - I usually find it in the water under rocks or at the entrance (in water) where you got the treasure key.

One hard to find egg is found by blowing up tree/rock that is near railroad track/water area - across from the hillside worrier - the messy cabin with man that does nothing ?

Reply

STORE ITEMS

1) BOOTS - Get manned tannery and manned blacksmith and 1 cow ranch

2) CHEESE - do all the trading post challenges and get the cheese hat and the butter churn - create 3 cow ranches and build 3 butter churns and cheese for sale in store - may not need 3 cow ranches - so try 1 then 2 then 3

3) WINE - complete successfully the smuggling challenge and you will get ability to grow winery - build several (1-5) flower beds and change them to purple flowers by dragging anyone to it (they will water flowers and change colors). Once you have several purple flower beds you get ability to buy grape seeds. Build 1-3 (again not sure of number) grape farms and you will be able to build winery - Once winery manned - wine for sale in store.
