Wild West 1.14.4. Ya hear me partner? It’s time to grab yer stirrups and yer spurs because this is one rootin-tootin' sort of PVP map. Yee-haw!
What is Wild West 1.14.4?
Wild West 1.14.4 is a minecraft minigame map designed to bring the classic ‘Cowboys versus Indians’ game straight into the Minecraft world.
The game works like any classic team deathmatch. Players will choose one team to side with, namely, the cowboys or the native Americans. The cowboy team spawns in a sturdy wooden foundation stocked with guns (bows), bombs (creeper eggs) and horses, while the native Americans are given caches of tomahawks (hatchets), bows and arrows.
What is the Wild West 1.14.4 map like to play?
There is a nice and balanced variety in what each team is given to battle with. While it might first seem the Cowboy team has an unfair advantage, the opposing side has a few little unique items to use to balance the playing field.
The map itself is definitely well-suited for a wild west cowboy map, and there are a few nice touches that keep the gameplay from getting stale and prevent any meta-strategies forming too early. There are few map features that allow for some strategic formations to take place. Even the most direct and obvious route of the wooden bridge has gaps to fall through, so gameplay is always changing.
The build quality however, is unfortunately not all that impressive. The terrain, though very appropropriate and thematically striking, is just the vanilla Minecraft badlands biome. A little creative terraforming would have been a great way to make the map a bit more visually pleasing. I felt as if there was a lot of potential in creating custom sized mesas, cacti and even mine shafts that unfortunately don’t make more than a brief appearance.
Invisible blocks also give this map the structure it needs to prevent the action getting spread too thin. However in some areas, particularly in the cowboy spawn, the invisible walls got a bit annoying and felt very restrictive. On a minor note, on the map’s very little amount of signage and text there are numerous spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. Not a massive deal, but certainly not a positive either. We may be cowboys, but we take spelling seriously, dagnabbit!
To summarise, despite its basic structure and game mechanics, this little minigame still has its charms and is certainly still worth checking out. It would definitely make a great addition to a server that already has a collection of minigames to choose from. And in combination with some other custom content, I think this map would flourish with a healthy amount of players to duke it out with.
