Red Dead Redstone is an open world, western-themed adventure map. It features gunfights, pig-racing, and a massive map with over 20+ unique towns and locations.
Is Red Dead Redstone just Red Dead Redemption in Minecraft? Nooooooooooooo. Considering Red Dead is a series (Revolver and Redemption), I thought it would be interesting to sort of make a Minecraft-alternative version of the series. As you can guess, I'm a HUGE fan of both games.
Is there a resource pack for it?
Yes, and it is required to play Red Dead Redstone, as well as Westward Expansion. The latest version is v03. What version of Minecraft is required to play? Minecraft 1.6.1 How long has RDRedstone been in development?
I first started development on June 15th, 2012. I used MCEdit to make ALL of the landscape, and when I started, I had little experience with MCEdit. With that said, I had to re-do large parts of the game after figuring out certain techniques in MCEdit, making those locations look much better. Also, I'm the only one actually building the game, and a great friend of mine is making the texture pack by himself. Westward Expansion took about 2 months to build.
Are you worried about copyrights issues from Rockstar Games for using Red Dead in the title?
I'm not making any money off of this, so I doubt I'll have any problems, and Rockstar still gets credit where credit is needed for making Revolver and Redemption. Also, Rockstarloves Minecraft.
The State of Denton
Red Dead Redstone takes place in 1891 in the fictional state of Denton, which is largely based on Colorado and Wyoming. The state of Denton is divided into 3 distinct regions, each of which are filled with a variety towns, settlements, villages and other various locations. Almost all structures/buildings in Denton can be entered. Denton's regions are:
This is the mountain region of the game, where snowy forests and hills are everywhere, not to mention the war being waged between the new settlers and the natives who call Neai home.
This is the more civilized portion of Denton, where redstone mined from the Neai Ridge is being used to power nearly everything, and it's citizens are obsessed with it.
This is the rural plains region of the game, where the many different native tribes live like they have before the settlers came to Denton. The settler's influence can still be seen here, however.
The map is about 20,726 blocks wide and 15,360 blocks long, or 1296 x 960 chunks.
Westward Expansion takes Daniel Wade into the San Bravo Territory, a rugged place where danger is always close. It includes four new towns and several other locations. Westward Expansion is heavily combat focused, and it features many new exotic weapons. The DLC also adds the opportunity to ride horses.
What is Westward Expansion?
Westward Expansion is a free DLC for Red Dead Redstone that features an entire new map that has many locations. This includes towns, farms, and gang hideouts. The DLC also adds horses, as well as improved mission mechanics and combat mechanics.
Can I use the same resource from Red Dead Redstone? Yes, but you will have to use the latest resource pack to play (Red Dead Redstone Resource Pack v03)
The town of Wheeler, below the Grayrock Mountains
Mineral, the mining town
And of course, horses.
