    Cool Open TTD

    Anyone else playing Open TTD?

    I find myself totally addicted.

    I played a substantial amount of it single-player prior to its first "full" release, back when it still relied on a number of Transport Tycoon files.

    (I actually own the Deluxe version even.) I've downloaded the last few releases, but haven't gotten around to installing let alone playing it... with Thanksgiving weekend upon us, for you and I and others living in Canada , I may finally do just that. The pre-1.x versions certainly had me feeling a need to see a newer release of TT come about, and am hoping for a similar if not even stronger sentiment now.

    You will be pleasantly surprised.

    They have kept the feel of the original while providing better signals and a lots of useful management tools.
    .
    There are a lot of mods available too that can make the game totally different.

    I played this game as an elementary school kid, and I find myself totally back into it.

    I played a lot of TTDPatch and even did some work on US train set.
    With my new screen I can't play OpenTTD without extra zoom levels, and they aren't done yet.

    OpenTTD is enjoyable for a while, I'll play it here and there occasionally. It doesn't take me too many games to tire of it though -- it seems like every game I end up making the same moves.

    Transport Tycoon on steroids.

    It's really good, but as Jonny said, it's enjoyable for a while and then you kind of get tired of it.

    I loved Railroad Tycoon; I assume this is similar.

    It's a bit different; you have to build your networks tile-by-tile, while in RRT, IIRC. you just drag the rail, and the path is laid out automatically.

    You have to try NewGRFs (that is, mods).

    I got a bit lost, but then tried a couple.

    Some don't seem to work with OpenTTD, only TTDPatch, which is annoying.

    Get NARS or DBsetXL, and then either the ECS or Pikka's industry set.

    yeah, I was using the ECS set.

    It's sort of intended for huge maps with little industry, right? otherwise it gets too crowded (normal or more industry) or there'll be only a few instances of each industry (regular-sized maps)

    I just activated NARS as well... damn that's an awful lot of engines. I think I'll start earlier than 1950.

    NARS is meant to start in the 19th century. Be careful if you mix it with ECS industries though, they only behave properly starting in the 20s.
