Wild West Mod

I love the idea of Wild West Buildings (big fan of Deadwood) with nice Saloons, General Stores, Sheriff's Office & Jail House, corals with horses etc, pioneer style farmhouses and to be able to utilise the Choo Choo train with Old West type stations bridges and yards, horse stables and newspaper printing shop. Maybe different cowboy style clothing for the bannies? Any takers? hehe

 

You all do such good work which is very much appreciated

@Kralyerg have you ever seen (in Victoria): Sovereign Hill (Ballarat); Central Deborah Gold Mine (Bendigo) and the ever lovely Port of Echuca (Echuca/Moama); they have always been on my wishlist when it comes to Western theme / Gold rush theme :)   

Both Bendigo & Port of Echuca aren't replica towns, they are still the original towns & centres, Sovereign Hill is a replica, but it's a working town, everything is built & working as it originally did.

Port of Echuca is Australia's largest working inland port, and has one of the largest collections of working, original (some replica, some new) paddle steamers (I had previously requested a model a few months back, haha :D;) ) and I think any of these towns would be ideal to fit into Banished :D It fits a lot of the landscapes, and the themes. 

Just some ideas ... :)

I've been playing non stop for 3 days lol....really like the look especially with the wooden sidewalks. A Sheriff would be nice addition though and I could stick the gallows outside it :) Perhaps a barbers for health and of course a livery stables for stabling the horses and horseshoing (perhaps that could be instead of the smith or included with it) ....not that I've any clue if those are workable.

Loving it @Kid123

to make the wildwest town more complete, EB has some wood houses and the saddle maker as well. if you go back through the mod section there are some that were posted as individual mods you might find useful.

Oh, I would love all of this! And if you tie this in with the request someone else made for a Mars mod then we could have a regular old episode of Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars (The Thrilling Adventure Hour) I've already created several towns and named them after other PodCasts (such as Night Vale) but this would be the happiest world I can imagine making! Yeeees please to all of this!

Kid1293 has created a mod with some Wild West Buildings. It's available from WorldofBanished.com.  There are some existing buildings that go really well with this, such as the Old Market, the Log Cabin, etc.  As with the "Space Colonization" mod, it would take a lot of time for someone to create all of the buildings needed to really change the look. I think this would be easier than the space mod because the buildings could function the same. The problem is finding someone who is excited enough to want to spend the hundreds of hours needed to create all of the buildings needed and test everything.

Yeah, I found some links to his Wild West buildings a moment ago and now I feel like a kid on Christmas. I've only ever downloaded my mods straight off of steam and I suddenly feel like a whole new world has opened up to me.

Hey, any tips on some good medieval mods that are compatible with Colonial Charter. I had been using one from Red Ketchup before I managed to get CC up and working (was having crashing issue that was more to do with an error on my end than with the mod) but when I added CC I had to remove Red's mod since the two hated each other.

Sounds like you might have been using Red Ketchup's Medieval Town that hasn't all been updated for Banished 1.0.7.  He has updated portions of that mod and they are compatible with CC 1.75 and Banished 1.0.7. The updates can be downloaded from WorldofBanished.com.  While you're there, go shopping for other 1.0.7 compatible mods.  BTW, a new MegaMod is being worked on (maybe will be out in 3-4 weeks???).  Red Ketchup is also working on a mod that combines many of his favorite mods. I think it will also be out before Groundhog's Day - but I'm not sure.

You definitely need Despo20's houses. There are only 2-3 but they are gorgeous!

you can use the NMT with the compatability 1.07 mod added.then the NMT items will work for CC or vise versa as well. RED is in the process of remaking a ton of stuff. since you like KID's wildwest mod,be sure to check out EB's mods. there are some farmhouses and leather shops.you can make saddles now.
