Building FAQ

Some of this is from memory, so I may get is slightly wrong

  • Town Hall (starts at level 1)
    With every level of the town hall the difficulty to build other buildings is reduced by five points.
  • Residence (starts at level 1)
    With each expansion of the towns residences five new town members can be accommodated.
  • Bank (starts at level 1)
    The higher the construction level of the bank, the more money can be put into the bank accounts and by that be protected from being lost.
  • Hotel
    With each construction level of the hotel new, more luxurious rooms are added.
  • Gunsmith
    With each new construction level the gunsmith offers new and better weapons.
  • Tailor
    With each new construction level the tailer offers new and better clothes.
  • General store
    With each new construction level the general store offers new and better items.
  • Mortician (max level of 1)
    Every town needs a mortician. Without a mortician in your home town you cannot challenge other players to a dual. They can still challenge you though.
  • Church (Cannot be built, starts already assembled)
    In the church you can say a quiet prayer.

Each building level has a point value of 100*level, so a level 3 building has a point value of 300.

It costs 6 energy and $60 for each 30 minute build.
Each 30 minute build, is approximately 5-6 building points (not sure of this).
The money can come from your personal account, or the town treasury.

How to take a Screen Shot, and post an Image.

Now, I know how to do this. This is more or less a FAQ because I've seen some people ask it already and I know a lot of people will be asking for it in the future.

How to take a Screen shot, and post it on these forums.

1. Take a Screen Shot. (PrtScn/Print Screen, If not possible, use software, Irfanview for example)
2. Paste it into paint. (To Paste into Point Press Ctrl + V)
3. Save it to your computer (Desktop is the easiest to find)
4. Go to Tinypic or Photobucket or Imageshack, upload the image you just saved on your computer.
5. It should show a code, Copy that code (Direct Link or right click the image and Press Copy Link). Put it in between the img code brackets
PHP:
[IMG] , [/IMG]
The IMG code is:
PHP:
[img]http://forum.the-west.net/images/misc/header_thewest.png[/img]
6. Is the image you want, already on the internet? If so, right click on it and go to properties. Copy where it Says Image Location and paste it in the same place like you normally would.
