Are you playing as Anne? If you are, look to the right of the rat cave. You will see two cone shaped rock formations. They stand on either side of the opening to the lower half of the screen. There is a tree to the right of these rock formations. Blow it up.

Hi, my quest log still says that I have to expand the tracks to brockway. But i finished brockway town already. Do i have to actually add tracks somewhere in my town? or is there another railroad repair quest i need to finish? I cant find anywhere else in my main town where to lie new tracks. this is dumb.

yes i am playing as Anne. What rat cave?? Can you give me a location? (like NE, SW, whatever) I feel so dumb.

For the rat cave...

About half way down the screen in the middle, you will see a small hill with a little opening facing west. This is the rat cave.

And your not dumb. It took me a few tries to figure it out.

Good Luck!

Dixie,
Check the map to see if there is something you need to do. If not, I'm stumped.

River Clean Up
The man you sell the barrels to is across the railroad bridge. Pick up the barrels and drag your person to him and set them down.

Thank you so much!! I finally found him and got rid of the barrels!!!

I am at the part of the game where I need to make the town worth enough to sell to get into the railroad competition. What do I need to do to move to the next step. I have over 205 in town happiness.I blew up the rocks and built the railroad at the bottom of the screen. someone came and said something about 1500 dollars and just to follow the tracks. I went the the end both ways and nothing happened.

If you are playing as Henry, where do you find the chest that goes to the fat rat?

To follow Paris Hilton, click on the map at the top middle. You can't follow the tracks.

The rat treasure as Henry is

To the right of the lady who wants you to get the animal furs. Blow up the dead tree next to the river and dig.

I need help with the noise ordinance section. No matter what I do a bandit shows up whenever I try to get near, even when I "engage" them first another bandit appears out of no where and the townsperson drops the bomb!! Please help!!

Hello All (^w^)

I wanted to ask how do you open the wooden bandit door in the upper left of the map?

Also is there anyway to access the broken wagon and pond that's a bit south from the rat cave? I tried building a bridge but I wasn't able to.

Reply

To open the bandit door, you have to reach the hostage quest. It won't open until then.

See the walk through for the fish treasure to get to the small pond and broken wagon.

Thanks so much for the quick reply Boopbug!

I have one last question. What does the train track that you uncover after blowing up the huge rock for? I built tracks from it as far as the map would let me but nothing happened.

Eventually someone will show up on that track, unlocking a new area on your map to go to.

How do you get dynamite? I got the upgrade. I have a general store. I've clicked on the store and the clerk. Nada! I have my license cos I built the bypass quest. ???????????

Did you unlock it on the upgrade menu? Once you do, it will take a few minutes for it to show up in your general store.

I'm in the Rodent Flu scene. I have gotten the cheese and caught the rats in the cave. I have found the necklace and spoken to Westley. Now where do I find the ROUS? I have seen the big red rat a couple times but was more concerned with getting the plague over so I didn't stop to shoot.
Thanks!

Search for the big rat and shoot him. This will end that quest.

BTW in Noise Ordinance the chest in the pit that you have blown up with TNT only contains about 40 gold. I spent the time to build a general store to find this out. In retrospect, it wasn't worth it but ya never know.

You don't have to start over.

Wait a bit for the dynamite. It takes a few minutes after you have employed the general store for it to show up.

Lasso the buffalo. He will follow very slowly.

You have to carve two different figures. Go to the menu to the 3rd build and click on the log. Then drag your hero to the log to carve it.

HennaDancer December 17, 2009 1:20 PM

I know I need to shoot the big rat. My question is where to find the bugger. I've looked all over the board several times, shot all the little ones I can find, dug up and opened everything, etc.

As to the buffalo, you click on him just like you'd click on a townsperson and he will follow you.

Just keep looking for him. The rat will show up.

The heavy log is for the logging quest. It won't trigger until the man come to challenge your hero. Look in the walk through for details.

Is there some way to tell what skill a worker already has?

Yeh it says 2 skills but which 2 do they have? This is bit annoying, would have been better to list which skills they had.

Am I right in thinking they can't get more skill points on the same job?

Click on your person. Look at their menu. There's a little white "paper" on the right middle. Click on it, and it will tell you what they are skilled in.

Michelle - barrels
Hard to say, which one your are missing. But:

Have you tried picking all the berries on the nearby bush? Also, there is a well nearby that you can blow up and get a polluted barrel out of it. One was right in front of the mayor's house on land. One by the wheelbarrow thing over near the factories and you will need to to blow up everything that's in the river (including the things you cannot interact with/pick up) such as the bottles and crates that were thrown in the river.

Greetings, Kayleigh

Thanks Kayleigh, sorry though I guess I forgot to put in that I'm in my main town... all of the crates are supposed to be in the river and I easily found 6 of them but the 7th eludes me for some reason.. it's frustrating because I now have 2 quests I can't complete lol, the river one and the fur trader.. can't find any more wolfs yet. Anyhow hopefully someone has an idea what I might be missing. Thanks

Michelle,
Did you get the two barrels that are in the pond? Start at the top of the screen and "walk" down the river. That's how I found them.

Michelle,
To get more wolves, shoot all the dear, bunnies, and rats. You will get more wolves once they are all gone.

Good Luck!

Thank you for the tip about the wolves Boopbug.. as for the crates, I've been up and down that whole river and can't see a single other crate.. the only other thing I have left to do is destroy my fish farms and bridges to see if anything appears. I did get the two at the bottom of the river.. not sure if it's a glitch in the game or my eyes!! I'll let you know what I find after I destroy them.. taking a break to go back to the real world for a bit!

Does anyone know the value that the town should be in Railroad Repo? I've played the game twice to this point and then nothing happens. I'm up to 100,0000. Sheesh how much do they want? I hate not having a detailed goal. Any advice to the requirements at this point would be appreciated.

I'm on the rescue father with Annie the train crashed but no bandits showed up so the bandit shot the father, so what went wrong? the only difference I did from the walkthrough was to get the tnt first then went back to feed the rats.

Be sure you have a lot of lawmen in the main town before you try to rescue your father. If you don't have lawmen in the main town, none will show up.

I have the same question as OffRoadHoney - how do I unlock the last build item? It's under "Luxuries." I unlocked the Wood Lock, and built about a dozen and they all were carved into bears. How do I get her to carve something other than a bear? It's driving me nuts!

Where the hll did the dinosaur come from????

I finished the game as Anne and now have gone back to start over with Henry. I skipped the tutorials and after the train arrived, just before Henry appeared, a dinosaur popped in. I can move him around like the dogs... so I guess he's like them... but--anyone else get the dinosaur???

The spilt bucket is an indication that you are out of water and/or a drought has hit. The drought will eventually end. Or, build more wells/water towers.

Keep carving logs. It's like the stables in Westward 3--eventually you'll get something else.

Reply

Have your hero carve a log and a skilled lumberman carve a log to get the different sculptures.

You got the dinosaur because you finished the fossil quest as Anne.

Reply

About the dinosaur:

Once you've collected all of the fossils, come back to the archaeologist in your main town, and talk to him. He finds an egg. A little while later... it hatches, and you get a dinosaur (which is oddly cute).

Hidden trophies:

Lumberjack

Knock down 50 trees.

Sorry, I don't know what the second one is, but I thought I'd put this up to help other people. I didn't see a point in listing all the trophies, since the vast majority are uncovered from the start. :)

I am having a hard time building gold mines. When I try to build them I always get a message that says the mine is blocked (these are mines that look like a rock stuck in a hole). I have tried irrigating but that has not made a difference. What do I need to do differently?

Reply

The spoiler tips for Rodent Flu location are incorrect. What I mean is -- the order they are laid out makes the level more difficult.

When I play this level I definitely do things in a different order to get done faster and easier.

I un-employ the butcher and the baker and put them to work growing food on a farm.

Then, I go to see Wesley as the ranch right away. I go next to kill the giant rant and find the necklace. This will give me the ranch and 2 more workers to produce food.

When the doctor gets sick, I quickly put another worker in his place as the doctor.

To accumulate gold quicker, I try to keep putting the same workers back at the gold mines after being sick and cured. Skilled Miners produce gold quicker.

After moving all cheese to the canyon, make sure to ONLY use your HERO to blast the pile of logs to close the canyon. A regular worker will get trapped inside the canyon from the dynamite blast. This will freeze the game and you will have to repeat the level to fix it.

Also, to make this level a bit less annoying, set the volume level of sound effects way low. The sound of vomiting workers may drive you crazy mad otherwise.

Kidnapped Sibling Tips

You need an employed clothing shop.

You need three deputies or two deputies and your sheriff. You cannot use hired gunmen.

If your deputies are on horses, they cannot complete this mission. Therefore, do NOT put your deputies on horses until after completing this mission.

To get rid of deputies on horses, let them get killed by bears so you can buy new deputies.

To change their clothing disguises, you have to put them one at a time into the clothing shop. You have to left click for this to happen.

Ogdenville tips

See the main spoiler tips for this level.

However, I do things in slightly different order.

I demolish all the factories FIRST and use the workers to help with the mission.

Next I buy two dynamite from the General Store, then remove that worker and use to complete the mission.

I send the general store worker immediately to dynamite open the path to the disposal site.

Upgrade your lumber camp as soon as possible and then use the Fortify upgrade again as fast as possible.

Build a doctor's office as soon as possible and emply a doctor. When the doctor gets sick, quickly put another worker in his place.

Use your hero and one or two workers to collect the waste barrels and take them to the disposal site quicker.

This level is not too difficult.

I do not buy ANY of the buildings until I have finished building up my own buildings. I do all my own fishing and mining and farming.

Then, I walk around town to find out the cost to buy all the pre-existing buildings. Then, when I have enough resources, I quickly buy them all and end the level.
