Version 1.20

16-07-2009

After the update it will be possible to construct forts and take part in fort battles.

Forts: Every sector now has three spots to build forts. They can be built by a town's councilors. Several buildings can be constructed in the fort, each of them giving different advantages. Constructing buildings in a fort requires products, like wood, iron and stone.

Fort battles: It is possible to try and take over the fort of another town in a big fort battle. Such a battle can be declared by a town's councilor. The fight begins 24 hours later, and the town's members should go to the fort in time to help attacking or defending the fort. The defenders have to hold the fort for 100 battle rounds, or defeat the attackers. The attackers have to take over the fort's flag that is located right in the middle of the fort and have to hold it for 10 rounds, or they have to defeat all defenders. If the attackers win, the attacking town takes over the fort.

There are still a few things that do not work as intended but are being worked on: So far no experience points are gained in fort battles and no items are found Constructing towers, gates and walls has no effect yet The store cannot be constructed yet

You can find more info about forts in the help.

Guns: A new weapon class is now available. Guns can be bought at the gunsmith and will be added to the already constructed gunsmiths. During fort battles only guns are used, dueling weapons have no effect. If you don't have a gun while taking part in a battle, you will use rocks that are lying on the ground. Dueling weapons are exclusively used in duels, guns just in fort battles. The easy way to differentiate between the two is: Guns are equipped in the slot to the right of the clothing slot, dueling weapons are equipped in the slot to the left.

Other changes: The background and the towns can be hidden on the mini map The ranking is now not sorted by name anymore, but by the date the town was finished. Shortly there will be another change that will take fort points into consideration The job "Constructing a fort" has been changed to "Constructing a manor house" to prevent confusion. The job's settings were not changed The travel speed is now shown in mph. With that we make it clearer to show if a percent bonus is relative or absolute New screen-shots have been created for the front page Health points, experience points and energy are now also displayed with numbers Dollar amounts are not shown in the Saloon anymore so that spies are less valuable

The forts are a very new feature. They are very complex and are still being tweaked. Please understand that over time we will have to change calculations and settings to create a good game balance.

Features and Improvements

  • Adventures affront system
    • It is very important for us to maintain a nice and fair environmet. For that, it is needed that players who are not playing according to the rules can be reported and will get punished. Now, bad language in Adventure chats can be reported just like in the general chat and our team will take care of working on the reports.
  • Shop Sale notifications
    • Every weekend, from Friday to Sunday, we have a random discount on our item shop. Now, there is a notification on the left-hand side that informs about Sales on the shop. Also, the shop icon on the bottom of the interface is now highlighted stronger.

Then you can merge these three items into a "1-star item" with higher bonuses. Three 1-star items can then be forged into a 2-star item that is even stronger. This works with almost all items, a few rare items are excluded. A couple of achievements for the item upgrading are waiting to be discovered as well. Important for script developers: We changed all item ids to a new system that represents the item's level directly in the ID. You might need to adjust your scripts.
    • Read more about the Item Upgrading on the wiki page
  • New Adventure Achievements
    • We added more than 20 new achievements for the Adventures that reward very active and skilled players. For many of the achievements we just started collecting the stats which means that we cannot reactively unlock them for players who have fulfilled the requirements in the past already. Sorry!

Now, videos are bigger and not permanently available which means that you sometimes might need to come back later to check if a new video is available. On the pro side, you should not be spammed with the same video 5-times a day anymore.
  • Preparations for Easter Event
    • We are implementing a couple of preparations and items for the new Easter Event. We might change stats, balancing or even functionality of the items still though.
  • And a lot more...

  • It is now possible to craft several items at once
    • This saves time and more importantly, doesn't cause the server to block your account because of too many requests. We are looking forward to your feedback on how to improve this little feature even further!
  • New Shop category sorting
    • We merged three categories into one that we thought were pretty similar already. This way, we have two tabs less on the Shop window and it is easier to keep an overview of all categories. Instead, on the new category "Add name here", you will find all Buff items, crafting items and a few more like the tent and energy and motivation bags. Since one of our last updates already, you can also find tooltips on the category tabs.

Version 2.23

Features and improvements

  • It’s time for “Relentless” quest line.
    • Good news for all you quest lovers! After issues we had with the “Relentless” quest line in the previous update and our decision to deactivate it until all issues are fixed, we can now inform you: WE DID IT, the problems are fixed. The quest will be active and hey…just enjoy it!
  • What’s better than a shop? A better shop!
    • We decided to modify the shop, so we reworked the first page as well as the display of the category tabs. We removed the big banner from the first page to have more space for presenting the most interesting offers. That’s not all, do you see the top left side of the first shop page? Now you will find special offers there in a banner that can contain several items and automatically rotates them. Cool, isn’t it? The banner shows all information about the sold items like limited time, count or discounts.
  • Player’s wish is our command!
    • Sometimes I would like to have longtimer ice cream that grants 300% more ice cream, but a longtimer in The West which is now called "Higher Speed" bonus has to be enough. Everybody can buy it, regardless the character class or level. You just buy it and scoop 200% movement speed, easy as pie.

Bugfixes

  • Holiday spook was not available on December the 31st, now it will
  • Bag of hearts from 2014 was still usable during this year’s Valentine’s Day event. Sorry Guys, not going to happen next year

Features and improvements

    • We decided to add small arrows to the rotating banner to make looking through current offers faster and easier.
  • “Join town” premium feature removed.
    • There was a premium feature that allowed to switch from town to town without the cool-down. Now, the town-hopping will be possible only with a proper break. So whenever you leave a town and want to join a new one you will have to wait. The more often you hop the longer your cool-down will be.
  • Theater daily quest removed.
    • Because the theater is currently not available there is no possibility to watch videos and as a result complete the “Theater daily quest”, therefore we decided to remove it.
  • BBcode button bar is back to the in-game Town Forum.
    • Editing a Town Forum message without bbcode buttons was difficult, and because we want contacting with your friends nice and easy we added the bbcode button bar.
  • Town councilors pin your towns to the blackboard!
    • As a town councilor you are able to invite other players, but you were not able to pin your town onto the blackboard. It will be possible now!
  • Friends in telegram address book.
    • Previously you could send telegrams only to town or alliance members and leaders. From now on you will also have your friends in the telegram address book, just to be in touch with them.
  • The “new” tag removed from the report menu.
    • The "read" status of a notification is connected to a related report now, so when clicking on the job/duel/etc. completion notification bar you will have your reports marked as read without even looking at them. This option will be useful if you prefer to check the duel or job results in notifications rather than in reports.
  • “Equip” button on the cloth calk.
    • At the moment, the cloth calk presents the best items which can be used to complete a job. You had to click on every item one by one to equip them. Thanks to the “equip” button shown items will be quipped directly after just one click.

Bugfixes

  • Portal registration.
    • Registered via Portal? So probably you did not receive welcome mail with email address confirmation. This is fixed now, and all you Portal registered will receive welcome emails for sure.

    • There was some trouble with not working crafting “+/-“ button after opening the skills menu but we want to inform you that it’s working properly now.

Version 2.25

Features and improvements

  • Item count
    • We know that some achievements require items counted in thousands and because of long numbers there was a problem with displaying the count between 1k and 99k, now it will be presented in a nicer way.
  • Rotating banner sale icon
    • When you hover over the rotating banner sale icon it will show you the time left for the sale. So now you will know how much time you still have to buy goodies.
  • Overlapping longtimer
    • When we added a new collector’s sale category to the shop, the search bar was overlapping the longtimer which did not look good. It is fixed now and the view is much better.
  • “Heal ALL the people”
    • We decided that “Heal ALL the people” achievement icon should be more of a western style so we have replaced it with a brand new one. But you have to check that on your own.
  • Inactive shop tab icons.
    • Previously our shop categories when not selected were quite dark, now they are going to be displayed in a clearer way.
  • Horseshoe and footsteps icons
    • Previously when you had to reach a certain destination to do a chosen job you were informed about time needed for that via text "transit time" and hours/minutes/seconds information, we have replaced the text with horseshoes or footsteps icons, depending if you are using a horse or your feet.

Bugfixes

  • HP bonus
    • Before the fix the HP bonus was way too big on the upgrade level 1 and there was no bonus for the next upgrade levels. We have corrected the calculations for item upgrading and now there is a proper bonus for each upgrade level, with the initial bonus being lower than before.
  • Quarter horse
    • The quarter horse will be an upgradable item from now on.

Version 2.26

Features and improvements

  • Automatic renewal of premium features by bonus medals
    • Bonus medals that give temporary premium features are given out on special occasions like events or the traveling fair. When used these also activated the automatic renewal for the equivalent premium feature.
    • Because you did not expect the badges to work like that we decided to remove the automatic premium renewal from all medals.
  • Free third set slot in the item manager
    • Some of you suggested that it would be great if we could add a free third set slot to all users in the equipment manager. We agree and decided to add one more slot and hope that it will make your playing experience a bit easier.
  • Thousand separator in the player statistics
    • Because we have a thousand separators in most our screens but not in the statistics, and many players asked for that, we decided to add them. We hope that this will make the numbers easier to read.
  • New daily tasks
    • The pool of daily tasks has been augmented with two new ones: “Win one Adventure” and “Jobs done”. Check them in the game and see how they work!
  • Item number font shadow removed
    • After getting a lot of Community feedback on this we took the decision to remove the text-shadow from item numbers, as it made some numbers on certain backgrounds too hard to read.
  • Hope Dies Last: Level requirement change
    • We decided to increase the minimum level requirement for the questline "Hope dies last" from 100 to 104.

Bugfixes

  • Tutorial clouds not disappearing
    • Sometimes the clouds did not clear properly after finishing the tutorial. After this patch they should disappear and present you with a variety of destinations.

  • The timer that gives players a penalty when they leave adventures early was not resetting properly under all circumstances. This has been fixed. The penalty timer now resets properly once the player has finished an adventure.
  • Chat window not working properly after finishing an adventure
    • After finishing an adventure the chat window stopped working properly until the page was refreshed. This issue has been fixed.
  • Replacing one set without one without a gun
    • When replacing an equipped item set with a set that did not include a fort weapon in the equipment manager, the set was saved but the player was unable to equip it. Replacing a set with one without a fort weapon works properly now.
  • Item upgrading bonuses not added to the interface
    • When you equipped upgraded items the bonus was not added properly to the stats and the work windows. Now the correct bonus values for equipping upgraded items are shown.
  • Wrong skill amount shown for level zero items
    • When wearing some level 0 items an additional skill or attribute point was added to the skills menu. After the fix the values of level zero items are correct.
  • Premium "cash pay-in" icon removed from worlds with reduced premium options
    • There is a premium feature in the game that lets players transfer money to their bank account from anywhere on the map. This feature is not active on all worlds. The button to use this feature was shown on all worlds and clicking on did not work. Now it is shown only on worlds where the feature is active.
  • Item loss during world migration
    • Under certain circumstances it was possible that some upgraded items were not copied over when migrating to a different server. This issues has been resolved and all items will be properly delivered when changing your hunting grounds.
  • Eastwood's vest misaligned in the player profile
    • Eastwood's vest was not properly aligned when looking at the player profile. The vest has been brought back into shape and will now fit you nicely. (WEST-10111)

Now you will be able to properly play Adventures without the need to refresh the page.

Version 2.29

Features and improvements

  • Buy the set with no name with bonds!
    • Due to the price of 2100 nuggets and the 2000 bonds limit players weren't able to buy the chest with bonds from the shop. The price of the chest has been reduced to 2000 bonds.
  • Improvements for new high level crafting items
    • The new crafting items introduced with version 2.28 have been given buffs. Make good use of them! Please give us feedback on the buffs and/or any additional buffs you want to see in the future!

Bugfixes

    • Some of the new crafting items introduced with version 2.28 were not auctionable which made creating certain recipes impossible. This was not intended and has been corrected.
  • The hotel no longer displays wrong duel times
    • Due to our changes with the duel system the hotel was displaying wrong times, resulting in KOed players under duel protection being displayed as being duel-able. This has been fixed.

  • The Oktoberfest 2015 items are now auctionable

    • The previous description was a bit misleading to new players, so we changed it to be more accurate.

    • Some players were wondering if and which buffs from fort battles also worked on adventures. We adjusted the texts to include that information where applicable.
  • Chase away highwaymen did not give any money

  • Inventory filter for fort construction
    • When depositing items for fort construction an automatic filter will now show you the valid items. Just as you know it from the traveling fair.

Bugfixes

    • Under certain circumstances the server was not responding anymore and the user interface did not update. Many of you fixed this issue with the "The West Connection Booster" userscript. This should not longer be required.
  • Longtimer end date being displayed wrongly
    • Due to a bug the end date of longtimers was displayed wrongly under certain circumstances. Their runtime was correct and this was only a display bug; which has been fixed.

Version 2.32

Features and improvements

    • The changes to the duel formula we have been testing on the beta server have been implemented on all markets now. Please visit our devblog (http://devblog.the-west.net/) for more information.

    • Similar won auctions are now grouped together in the current bid tab of the town market. You may collect them all with just one click.

Bugfixes

    • Under certain circumstances the boxes to deactivate the auto extension of premium features disappeared. This has been corrected.

    • Enjoy your presents. And remember: don’t open it early!

Bugfixes

  • Quest-log issues
    • Under certain circumstances players were no longer able to use the quest-book anymore. We applied a temporary fix for that on Tuesday the 3rd of November. One change needed was that the amount of quests that can be accepted simultaneously had to be reduced to 30. If you have more than 30 quests active you need to remove quests (until you have 29 active) to be able to accept more again. We are looking into a long-term solution to be able to raise the quest cap again.
  • A Western Nightmare
    • We readjusted the requirements of the repeatable American Nightmare quest-line which occurred to players trying to repeat it a second time. These changes should solve the problems for most players. There might still be players having issues as different players are stuck on different parts of the quest-line. We will monitor this and adjust it accordingly. Quest starting too early
  • Repeatable quests
    • Due to a bug with our content tools all repeatable quests were starting too early (same date as they do on beta). This has been fixed with this patch. Any repeatable quest-line that started before the patch will still be available too early and might therefore not work properly (e.g.: items not dropping) for seven days.

Version 2.33

Features and improvements

  • New repeatable Christmas quest
    • We implemented a small and easy quest which players can do every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. A reward waits for those willing to help an grumpy old man during Christmas!

    • For players to be able to buy the Christmas Sale chests for bonds we raised the bonds limit from 2000 to 3000. The new cap is permanent.
  • A sea of flowers!
    • We retroactively added the "A sea of flowers" achievement to all worlds who reached the achievement reward level in this years Day of the Dead event. This also included the new title "Guide of the dead".

    • As it was confusing for our players to have the base and repeatable questline start on different days the "Crispy Cold" quest-line was adjusted. The base quest-line will now also start on the 2nd of December, the same date as the repeatable version of the quest-line.
  • Polishing pistols
    • The "Precise Peacemaker" and "Precise army revolver" had wrong or blemished graphics. These have been corrected.
  • Fort Battle performance improvements and trouble-shooting
    • With the start of our "International Fort Battle Championship" we gather a lot of data on our Fort Battles and we are currently using this to improve the performance of our Fort Battles, primarily in the field of server-load. Additionally have been fixing other issues that came to surface during this event. We continue working on this to make sure the championship can run smoothly.

  • Gold Rush questline
    • Due to issues with the gold rush questline we adjusted the quest giver and questline to run from February 14th, for 30days, to allow players to finish it. These times will be reverted to the old values with a future patch.
  • Adjusted the drop chance of the third key
    • The third key is obtained from the jobs "Grave robber" and "Travelling merchant". The drop chance for finding it as a grave robber was significantly lower. This value has been adjusted to be more in line with working as a traveling merchant.
  • Improvements to the chat system
    • We worked on several technical improvements to the chat system. It should now perform and work better, sending out messages faster and more reliable.
  • Valentines quests

    • A technical error readout was displayed. This has been changed with a more helpful message.

Bugfixes

  • Fixes for several for repeatable questlines
    • Due to the recent issues with repeatable questlines we found out that there were several problems with how the quest system worked and individual quests were configured. These conditions made them impossible to complete quests or would have broken them in the future.

    • Under certain conditions it was possible to be stuck on the New Years questline. This should not longer be the case.
  • Rounding issues for upgraded items

    • On some markets the Nightcap and it's description were shown in the wrong language. This has been fixed.
  • Burned down hut not available after December 31st
    • The quest giver was not configured correctly and therefore did not show up. This has been fixed.
  • Collect dollars from the market for nuggets is now possible again
    • Due to a bug introduced by changes in the market system this feature was not working anymore.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause a server crash
    • Under certain conditions this issues was able to cause a world to crash. This has been fixed.

    • The Easter questline in which players have to find the three eggs for Maya was confusing for some players. Since they missed the quest "Save the Saloon, part 2" the quest was showing up for them but the quest locations did not. We added a hint to the quest so that players know how to proceed.
  • Dynamic quest timeframes for Easter questlines
    • We implemented a new way to handle our Easter quests. The start/end times are now set automatically. This way we no longer need to manually adjust these every year.
    • The quest "Easter" from the "Little things" questline (quest ID 165) now runs from 72 hours (3 days) before Easter Sunday (midnight) until 96 hours (4 days) afterwards. The new timeframe for 2016 is: 24.03.2016 at 00:00 until 31.03.2016 at 00:00.

  • The Easter Bunny's hide
    • To complete the achievement "The Easter Bunny's hide" players were asked to wear the items from the Easter bunnies set. The quest is now available again and players will find these items in the UBP shop during Easter for the price of 10 bonds/nuggets each.

Bugfixes
