Hallo. I am Gabrilduro, the Developer of this Western Mod of M&B WB v. 1.158/1.167. I always dreamt of a Western videogame or of a ACW videogame and this Mod has them both and is an Rpg in 1st/3rd and strategic view. It is for a Single Player Campaign, but has also Custom Battles and a cool Multiplayer (even in Coop mode!) with playable Factions of the American Civil War and Wild Frontier, Mexican Second Empire and Indian Wars.DOWNLOAD LINK for 1860s Old America
Please go to the main Homepage on Talesworld Thread and post a comment there....to get all the explainations, watch Videos, Pics and posts.

Updated the Mod and the POLL

Go to the last 1.1 version DOWNLOAD LINK and enjoy this last version

-- NEW THINGS in the Mod --

-CUSTOM Battles changed scenarios and fixed ALL
-MULTY-PLAYER on a Lan or alone , (NOT on internet)
Playable now with TEN different Factions, including France and..Mexican Bandidos!! :shock:

-added FORMATIONS and ORDERS! Amazing job :mrgreen: (THX to Super HARLY!)
-named all French Centers, Lords and Ladies (THX BB for great help!!)
-new troop tree and names/items for France
-all indian Towns look the same, as an Indian Camp
-all Western Towns have a western town scene.
-fixed ALL Centers COORDS in ALL the Map, as well, pard' ! ...some have to be assigned, cuz of some errors?! :wink:
-Richmond Battlefield and most ACW scenes FIXED
-Miners Village (close to Denver) had some cactus_c that caused crash and some entry points were missing
-Some Centers (Towns/Forts and Villages) will look very close or even IDENTICAL.
To speed up the process of updating 1860s, I decided to "group" some centers and give a more "western and 1860s LOOK to the Mod, even if they very seldom random, see? I liked the final result, enough ....and I m sure u guys will as well.
GREAT NEW SHOWDOWNS (old Arenas) . Real Western and Mexican SHOOTOUTS!!!
Some ppl promised to work on some rough scenes and they will fix, or even create, new ones! 8-)
-Added ALL resources for making Scenes (pls, define Map ONLY the World strategic Map, folks! :twisted: )
So now more modern and Western PROPS, Houses and buildings...Trains...and military SHIPS can be added in the scene!!! 8-)
-Added all weapons and.... improved skills for a great weapon: the Remington (Admy, happy? :wink: )
-MODIFIED A LOT OF THEM AND A LOT OF STUFF, creating NEW Horses, Guns, Outfits, etc
-poisoned arrows with high damage to kill instantly!
-added all uniforms!!!
-made new troop trees
-made new assignements for troops guns and items
-deleted Canada and made a new faction for France, with full new troop tree
-placed many new French Centers in Mexico-Deleted Indian raiders and added APACHES!!!...........YESSS!!!!!!!!!!
-Comanches are now mixed Indians/Mexican COMANCHEROS
-improved many skills and assignements
-made new faces for most troops....and some characters. THX a lot to JOE!!!
-made new Companions and Merchants with names of friends and Supporters (...wait to see Marecone the Rebel!!! :twisted: )
-changed some Text at start (...and a lot has to be changed yet....but that damned work KILLs my eye!)
-Some new great sounds
-Wanderful Music according to Factions and....circumstances!!!
-swords drawing sounds are intended to be associated to charging trumpet music....and the effect when ordering to switch to melee is a massive and contagious charging effect! :P
-reverse handling of some knives are one of my inventions and is based on the fighting habit of most indians and white adventurers.
when I trained ppl in self defense, that is the best way to use a knife, due to shortest and quickest moves that are not easily predictable...and is very difficult to take it away from the owner...hehehe

--many other things that I cannot remember or that are still in my...hands.
Hope that all Testers will post comments on the many new issues that will find in this last update.

Things that I just fixed now:
-DELETED "Hurry Become master of the field" during Multiplayer Battles ( I HATED that!!! :roll: :roll: )
-ALL weapons show perfectly in Inventory, now!!! (GAX will love it, hehehe :mrgreen: )
-Ammos show on troops as Holsters or ammobelts. Choose the right belt for Your revolvers
-Military reverse draw for revolvers, in Usa and CSA Troops (very realistic! 8-) )

-explosive arrows with dynamite on them
.....some bugs that still occur, sometimes...

I am so sorry to admit that I was not able to add Battle Continuation, Freelancer and Diplomacy neither to the latest version, due to several and Killing main errors that I would meet in towns and Lords Halls.
The pic that I posted in the main title of this article is just ONE of the MANY and different error messages that I got...
My suggestion to the lack of battle continuation is :

-to stay far enough from shooting, because I tweaked values toperfectly balance the air friction effect on projectiles that U ll get instantly killed at a distance of 0-30/70 mt, according to the gun shooting at u, hurt differently or even missed, at a longer and much longer distance. The so called "Out of Reach".

-press ctrl+f9 to slow down time and get a slow motion effect, every time that u are in danger

-press ctrl+e as soon as u get killed (within 2 seconds or will be too late) and u will see the battle continuing IF u got enough men still alive. Press H to clean the screen from values and indicators while u are watching.

Pls consider that I spent a lot of time in trying to please every single request that u fans asked kindluy to me, but I could not do them all and some were really impossible for the way my mod is built.

I am infact the only modder that is still not using module_python but I only tweak texts in all their values and that is much longer process and does not allow too many changes once is done...

Hey Gab I kinda have another question. Why is the Mercenary\Village troops scale so low? When I hire some mercs in a tavern, they mostly give me only 1 to 3 guys! Anyways this mode is great. Also, could you add the recruitment thing from towns into this mod? You know, like the thing from 1776? That would be best imo.

Gab...this last update 1.1 is really an
New things and issues all over:
flare and smoke for weapons
skills for troops
skills for npgs
skills for tavern mercenaries
factions colors and ratios
scenes in towns and villages and forts
scenes in taverns
scenes in governors rooms > and that was needed!
proficincies on weapons, revolvers rifles and muskets
reloading time for guns
3 different classes of shot sounds for revolvers repeating guns and old cap&ball; weapons
new custom battles
new mp troops and scenes
and so many other things that I am discovering step by step and I cant stop playing this addicting moooood!
The mod is absolutely and incredibly > s t a b l e < and you fixed in a record time so many issues and bugs that is incredible. All alone?!
Be proud of your own work my friend, great job once again.
I cannot believe that so many players and fans pushed you in such a hurry time ago and now they can only point at some small issues and nobody wrote a long and deep review on the many things that were accomplished and expecially in the very last 1.1 latest version...
Once again, I rated it 10 because it is a full conversion mod and based on history and it deserves a special apreciation
but also because I noticed an insane action of trolls and haters against gab
I already said that I know what is behind modding intensively as GABRILDURO did here and he deserves full respect and support
i also helped him long time ago on 1755 and i know him deep enough to say that he is a very kind and very very special person...and if I say that I am a female he will understand who I am lol
About the mod, it is a lot of pure fun and you can play as you want:
farmer, soldier, cowboy, mercenary, american native, outlaw, and so on
And it is single player! I mean...how many good sp musket mods based on history were made for wb? ...total conversion?!
Honestly, I find myself playing more custom battles and mp battles with ai.
bots are not very smart but I love to create battles as i like
and I adore arenas as gab made them he called them shootouts or something like that
also I read about gabs recent issues, heart problems and I wish him all the best
thanks for all your efforts made for the community, gab
keep up the good work ....when you can

Hi Gabrilduro! Out of all the mods I've ever played, this is the one I spent my most hours on. I've played Gekokujo, Full Invasion 2, and a LOT more, but out of all of them (Execpt Nova Aetas) you could change the uniforms of your army. That is one of the best functions in my opinion. So could you please add it to this mod? I know it might take some time, (I'm a game dev myself) but I'm sure it might attract a lot of attention to this mod (Not that there isn't already) Thanks!

Hi Gab!
I did take the time and I played the latest version. Unfortunately, I found a few annoying bugs. It is possible that there is a problem with my computer. In this case, I please your advice about what the problem is.
Minor problems:
1) Shoutouts: Nobody in my game shoots - only fists and knives. In Indian cities, shoutouts: NPCs running around in confusion. Sometimes without boots.
2) Relationships: The Indians have no war with the settlers at the beginning. The settlers and the Indians but yes - corrects itself during the game.
3) When you raise taxes and peasants revolt - I had in hand an invisible blunt weapon.
4) The fortified village - you can go through some houses.
5) The game occasionally crashes when entering the eastern cities (Boston, Washington). But only rarely and help restart the game.
These, however, are details that do not prevent the game.

Major problems:
1) The game immediately crashes when I speak with guildmaster in Cincinety.
2) When I try to enter some Mexican fort (St. Vincent and St. Carlos and many more), the game immediately crashes.

It is not affected by the graphic settings. I tried everything. I have new computer and mod works without any problems at maximum details - except these.

Otherwise, there is a lot of work that you did. The game is much more stable and I appreciate the unification of weapons (pistols, rifles vs muskets). Thanks for any reply.

PS: I apologize if I report bugs in the wrong forum. I do not have an account on talewords.

Thx fot answer. :) I found, that crash also appears in Presidio de loreto - when enter or attack.
Also i noticed, that some Mexican forts have oppositely spawn points of attacking and defending armies. When I siege fort, than I start inside. Problem occures in these type of forts (all what I found yet):
Presidio de cerro gord
Fort Cancuen
Fort Sayil
Fort el Camaron

Wittek Nov 16 2015 replied:

To be accurate - attacking army is inside fort and defending is inside and outside in several groups all over the map.

Never playing regular Mount and Blade again... this mod is awesome, it plays much differently to native Mount and Blade where I wouldn't dare take on another force if it was greater than my own where as in this mod I would go in guns blazing and take em out. I would rate it 10/10 but I can't because I'm a new member, that's right I made an account just to say how good this mod is.

Lowest Rated (95 agree) 1/10

I'm submitting this low score not because the mod is bad. It's an ambitious mod witch fails in the expected areas. I'm giving it a low score because the author insists on selling the final release in return for good reviews. A complete disregard for any creative criticism and an extremely disrespectful practice to both the community that supports it, and those who intend for and use the review system for it's intended purpose. NOT being used to blackmail users into giving the mod good press. Despicable…
