    Has This Been Posted Before?Yes/No
    This is a grand idea I had yesterday

    There is already a stage in front of the post.
    My idea is: you can click on the building that is currently the post,
    A screen would popup similar to the hotel screen.
    (example)
    1st class seat:500%speed Cost $500-1,000
    2st class 400%speed etc...

    Then you could select the town/fort you want to go to.
    The cost would vary according to the distance.
    (example)
    $50 per mile.

    Also you could send supplies to your fort without going there.

    Reason
    Expenditure of game money.
    Faster traveling
    Easier transporting

    Abuse Prevention
    I don't see how this could be abused

    If you have a problem suggest a way to fix it.
    I'll redo it as many times as I have to.

    You already have traveltime shortening premium option.
    So - no.

    But I won't undermine it because maybe, if worked on it a bit more, maybe it would become good.

    You believe developers care for nonpremium players?

    By trying to kill the premium you'll gain nothing. That's why I'm suggesting you work some more on idea.
     
  5. I agree with Joker this would kill the dosh they get from premium users, I've seen alot of idea's to move around the map, trains, planes and automobile's :laugh:. I added one myself which i thought was reasonible. Though atlast it seems for free players buy a quarter horse and all the best horseback ridding skill clothing and even add afew to the skill. I can move around at 12 MPH, I don't know if there is a maximum speed though thats alright with me.

    (Nothing wrong with the idea, just can't see it fitting around exsisting game)

    ok
    But I still think it's a good idea
    cuz there wouldn't need to be any huge changes.
    all the pictures are there.

    I like the idea, I would love to see this added to the game. :)

    This is a good idea. But one way that it could also be done is by have players buy 2 quarter horses and then buy a stage coach from the General store. That way you can have your own stage coach instead of paying to ride one. This (if you buy the stagecoach) would replace your riding animal with 2 quarter horses and a stage coach.
    The speed for it could be around 300% but, I really don't know how fast it should be.
     
  9. A wagon can't go faster than a man on a horse thats just crazy talk :D

    Well, hey? you never know! (That would be funny to see if they put this in the game and it went so much faster!)

    I like it! But I still say that it should be that you can go and pay for a ride in a stage coach or you can buy one your self.

    As mentioned earlier this takes away from the premium feature of waypoints which undermines the use of gold nuggets.

    Closing topic.
