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've been having some crash issues. Whenever I try to siege certain towns or forts, it just crashes my game. Here are the places that have had the problem so far:
FORT Pulaski
FORTS Henry and Donelson
If you need to know some more infomation:
I have 120 Plains Indian Warchiefs in my party.
I'm an officer of the USA Federal Gov.
I'm level 24.
My equipment is as follows:
Roughman Hat Beige
Sheriff Outfit Long
Light Leather Boots
Superb Horse Chestnut
Volcanic Rifle (Metal Cartridge)
Doublebarrel Shotgun (Paper Cartrridges)
2 Quick Reloading 36 Bullets

I hope that helps. If you need anything else, just ask.

thx mate and thx for rating my mod! I will go over those things that u pointed at!

Actually, I crash too when I lead my soldiers into assault at Fort Henry and Donelson. I don't think it matters what soldiers you have or what equipment you have. Also, how can you get 120 Warcheifs? None of the companions can upgrade the Warriors. I now have all the companions, 80 CSA Elite Cavalry, and 20 CSA Best Shooters for infantry support. And I have to build Rum Distilleries in every town to pay my troops. How do you pay those Warcheifs which cost like hundreds of dollars each?

Trust me, man. It took a lot of progress. My save file has almost 3 in-game years on it.

Perfect mod! just perfect and so well done.
Only thing that could be better are some textures still old and ugly but they are very few with this last update.
The fun is absolutely huge and it makes other mods centered on the same period time really booooriiing! and none of them are sp.
They are all mp only
gabrilduro's mods are a must for all those gamers that want action and fun in a well done history mod and that is not a common issue since most games and mods fail in one side or in the other one
In this mod a big and important piece of american history is very well represented and I already played and enjoyed the other mods that gab made such as 1755 old frontier, 1776 american revolution... btw you promised to upload here your last updates of thos old ones
The first thing that hit me in this new 1.1 version was GUNS! wow...I mean....WOW! you fixed in one shot all weapons and gave a final and definite great sensaction of reality and sense of handling a real old west heavy, slow, d-e-a-d-l-y gun!
and I think that I am one of the most informed within the many gamers that play western games and it was the occasion were I firstly encountered gab, speaking about western films.
Guns are lethal at short distance, like in real life but only few of them are really mortal at long distance. Now the difference between them are really detailed and nothing was left undone in my opinion and that is the reason why it took me so long to post an official comment even if we were always in touch wit GABRILDURO.
I also apreciated the choice of assigning to less troops the new henry, spencer, martini and volcanic weapons which were multiple shots guns but not much sold in that period of time and expecially did not have yet a solid trade on their ammunitions.
That is a very important matter because troops and partisans would n-o-t carry guns that had not a fast and sure ammo supply and that was one of the reasons why they were not so often used even if you would find them on dead enemies.
Also reloading is really well done and the time that it takes to make some revolvers to shoot again is authentic if not still a little too short. forget about those games and movies that show gunmen shooting and reloading like magicians... using and reloading them was an art and not many could do it.
Horses speed is reduced I saw and that was a great idea because it takes longer now for monted troops to hit infantry with a cavalry charge and I can organize my men in a longer time
Another thing that is very noticeble soon is the large modification of most battlefield and those many internal scenes in towns villages and forts...not so many in the french territories that are in Mexico, though but in the great part of the map there were many and significant add-ons

All in one I can say that it is a great work Gab and I admire your perseverance considering your many personal problems in life famyly and work and I never forget that you are basically a o-n-e p-e-r-s-o-n t-e-a-m with many players that act more like haters than supporters.
Long life to GABRILDURO and thk you for your immense work and dedication!

^^ ei gabbo...certo che potresti creditarmi per il supporto video che sai eh?! ^^

o yes yes yes the last update is so full and graet and make it a fantastic mod is a fantastic mod. the music and the atmosphere are wonderful and siege battles are so much fun! I like American Civil War but not boring mods and if you like action and gore you will love this mod lol
in a large battle against the CSA(playing as USA black soldier)I got sourronded and we all were rushing at each other, bullets flying close to me and my horse got shot but I got up and an enemy was reloading and I had no ammo myself so I pick up a rifle with bayonet and killed him in the stomach then got his rifle and shot the CSA general and I winned the battle lol
I love this mod and I never have crash at all

This is a cool mod and this is a question:
How did you do the overland map/what map editor you used for the overland map?

(not scene making i mean the OVERLAND 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.

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…
