Hallo. I am Gabrilduro, the Developer of this Western Mod of M&B WB v. 1.153/1.158. 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

First Official Review from Batong 92
I have played thrugh 100 game Days on new 99t and wb 1.153 and there was not even a single crash with this mod, one of the most stable i have ever played. The new viev limitation feels great once you get used to it. Most of the items are great and the revolver pairs wich show 2 guns and 1 can be drawn, is among the coolest. The great number of diffrent good looking rifles are awsome. I like the village battlefields most of all other battlefields and those around Richmond are very good.The best ways to avoid problems in village battles is to have small Groups instead of one huge line,
I play as a CSA vassal vs USA.The scenes are verry good and the random bandit attacks and prisonbreak missions allows high quality street shootouts.The showdowns are great and they are not won to easy thanks to the high Close quarter pistol damage with makes them both hard and intresting.The units for each faction, bandits, hunting terretorys, manhunters and secret hideouts all over the map makes travel much more exiteing.The overall gameplay are better then any other warband mod and the battlefields, formations and tactics fits the time period perfectly.And i shuld not forget to mention all the great caracters for example G A Custer and Stonewall jacksson with you can even recognice on the battlefields becuse they have personal faces. Also the companions are awsome and its verry funny to se Django in a game :) Summary. This is the greatest mod for WB and its verry stable with the 1.153 verson.Thank you very much Gab for creating and sharing this masterpiece with the comunity. :D
-- 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...Lost Island CREATURES !!
-added FORMATIONS and ORDERS! Amazing job (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?!
-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!
-Added ALL resources for making Scenes (pls, define Map ONLY the World strategic Map, folks! )
So now more modern and Western PROPS, Houses and buildings...Trains...and military SHIPS can be added in the scene!!!
-Added all weapons and.... improved skills for a great weapon: the Remington (Admy, happy? )
-MODIFIED A LOT OF THEM AND A LOT OF STUFF, creating NEW Horses, Guns, Outfits, etc
-poisoned arrows with high damage to kill instantly!
-NEW Horses FULLY EQUIPPED!!
-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!!! )
-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!
-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!!! )
-ALL weapons show perfectly in Inventory, now!!! (GAX will love it, hehehe )
-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! )
THINGS STILL TO DO or FIX
-explosive arrows with dynamite on them
.....some bugs that still occur, sometimes...
Hallo everybody and sorry for long absence.
Playable new v.1.0 will be done within next month.
It was really a killing job but many of you supported and motivated me a lot lately and it is a pleasure to see that still so many players and friends are close to me and encourage my work.
I don t want to always sound sad and tired, but my life changed completely on a personal side and modding did not have the old appeal and free time is smaller and smaller.
But what the heck: GAB NEVER DIED and is still alive and modding!!!
Thx to all those that wrote nice words and gave positive REVIEWS.
PS: write suggestions and ask for changes in the mod quickly...one more month and all those that showed interest and apreciation will be able to play the new version, soon!

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…
