The Saloon Bar


When I first started playing The West I found this great addon for Firefox, like first developer Bevoir sad for lazy guys... Well with game updates this addon becomes less and less useful, so I've decided to take my time & repair missing & updated items in addon. Many thanks to Bevoir, it was he's idea in the first place.


1. Download the extension from official Mozilla site
2. Follow the instructions given by Firefox

Once you've followed the installation steps and restarted Firefox, The Saloon Bar will be ready to use.

Displaying The Saloon Bar

To open The Saloon Bar, select the View menu, followed by Sidebar. This will provide an option which will allow you to toggle The Saloon Bar display. Alternatively, press Ctrl-Shift-S whilst in Firefox to toggle the sidebar.


Before you can use The Saloon Bar, you need to provide it with information about your character and your character's equipment. To initialize the system:

1. Log in to The West
2. Open your Inventory screen
3. Click the Update Details button in The Saloon Bar
4. Wait a little
5. Wait some more

Whilst you're waiting, The Saloon Bar will be calculating the optimum equipment for all jobs. The more equipment you have, the longer this will take. During this time, Firefox will not respond to any actions so please be patient.

You will need to re-initialize The Saloon Bar if you find or buy new equipment. You will also need to re-initialize if you change your skill or attribute levels. However, The Saloon Bar will store information across sessions: you do not need to re-initialize if you shut down Firefox, turn off your computer or buy a new car.

Displaying Your Job List

After initialization, the list of jobs your character can do will be displayed in The Saloon Bar. Four buttons at the top of the bar give you the option to order your jobs by money, experience, luck or total. Each button will order jobs in descending order (for example, clicking the star button will display all possible jobs with the job giving the best experience at the top of the list).

The default behaviour for The Saloon Bar is to hide jobs which your character can't do. By removing the tick from the box marked "Hide Impossible Jobs", however, you can set The Saloon Bar to show jobs regardless of whether you can actually do them.

Displaying Job Advice

To receive advice on the best equipment to wear for any given job, click on the job within the job list. Images will appear indicating the best hat, neckwear, body clothing, boots and weapon to use when working on the specified job.

The Saloon Bar will also show you the predicted labour points for the specified job.

Please note that The Saloon Bar does not calculate data for combinations of item sets. The Saloon Bar provides advice but this advice may not be 100% accurate if you own items from multiple sets which, in conjuction, provide the best bonuses to the specified job.
