I've got an idea that would be cool if the wild west game had a couple of levels from movies you know what I mean, like The good the bad and the ugly or For a few dollars more if you've seen them like from a TGTBTU movie the cemetary if you seen this you'll know and from For a Few dollars more the town near the end just an idea I hope you don't think this is stupid

You got WW installed ok then ?
I think you're ideas are sound, infact you'll notice that WildWest town has a lot of buildings that were taken from a few dollars more :)
We could do with a couple of more mappers to start on new maps... perhaps if 1.4 proves to be a hit I'll invite a few to have a go :)

I wouldn't mind having a bash at mapping. I think the last game I ever did was an adventure for an Amstrad 6128! Now i'm showing my age. :D Is there a lot involved in mapping and what tools would I use to create a WW map? Answers on a postcard please.....:D
My idea is for a Fort map, the objective being get into the fort, blow two ammo caches, kill the captain and steal his ceremonial sword. I was also thinking of a few escape tunnels in and out of the fort, both of which would be well hidden. A gate and a window wall to blow plenty of open space with rocks and hills to hide behind, and also a dry river bed. The fort itself would have a higher viewing deck behind the wooden wall surrounding the fort. Within the fort itself it would have a big court yard with plenty of buildings to explore, but only two doors would take you any futher into the map. I was also thinking of plenty of things to shoot at and either explode or break, besides windows and chairs. Shoot a barrel and it explodes, shoot a support leg under the viewing deck and the support would break and some of the deck would come crashing down. I know a map like that would be for a large number of players but I think it would be a winner.

I kind of like the idea of maps w/ multiple routes. Both Drab Town, and Hasienda have many possible routes (I keep finding new ones all the time). I'm not sure what all is involved w/ mapping but if Hewster or Boltyboy would list the types of programs needed and some tips for newbies that would be a great help.
