Hello,

First of all. For those working on development of Openttd, Newgrf’s, scripts... Keep up the great work! After all these years, and hours and hours of playing ttd en openttd it stays addicting. My name is Martin, 33 years old and I work in the Dutch rail maintenance sector.

It's been nearly 10 years ago I first paid this forum a visit, so I think it's about time for me to introduce myself :P

My name is Gsor Snoitasilivic Llafo Dog, currently 32 yo. When I was still in highschool I used to play TT, after which I decided that I should built a website at my own based on Transport Tycoon. Although it never came to a spin-off that you guys here would be able to compare with TT in any way, TT had something that you can still see in my weblog. My weblog is called Tycoon Newspaper (Dutch). And as I made it I was inspired by the (anoying!) popup newspaper-messages that you could see in TT when some crazy opponent decided to launch a transportline where you where just about to do the same thing. When a UFO landed on your railtrack something similair did happen, again there was a headline. My weblog www.wsnoi.com/tn formed the base of what is now my game-website www.wsnoi.com (also Dutch). The website is still running and after recreating it in 2008 I'm still designing the games myself.

Feel free to ignore my website or weblog if you're not Dutch or not interested at all, I just felt like sharing my good old memories on how one Chris Sawyer-game played a huge part in my life.

Oh by the way: I might someday try to published a book with the name Tycoon Newspaper (based on my articles and monsterstories, but actually on TT :wink: )
Wrong is always wrong, no matter how you would write it...

Hi all,

New here. Thought I'd introduce myself :)

I'm a guy from The Netherlands and I think I'm addicted to OpenTTD :) Played the original TTD first when I was still a kid, about 14 or 15 years ago :D Still playing today, and in recent years purely OpenTTD. Love all the additions, enhancements and upgrades of the game!

I'm just looking around the forums to find new interesting ways to build my empires and maybe give some advice myself too. Looking forward seeing you!

Yours truly,

Crashit.

Hello,

I'm Erik from the Netherlands and I have lived a while on the tt-forums :lol: I mostly play Locomotion and have made a few mods for the game. Like most early members I too started with Transport Tycoon and it's successors in 1994 and I loved it. But when Locomotion came out in 2004 I started to that game (and never stopped) because there was finally a game wich had normal turns instead of turns in a triangle...

I've been into videogames for a very long time, I started with an Atari 2600 and a Commodore 64 in the early eighties...Later I also started to play on the MSX 1 and 2. In 1984 I turned to the NES and later to the SuperNES and Sega Megadrive. My favorite Nintendogames are still the adventures in the Mario-series and I currently own a Nintendo Wii, a Playstation 2 and an XBOX360.

After all these years I still love video-games and I still like some games in the Tycoon-genre, my most favorite game being Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 and Locomotion...

My hobby's are video-games, model-kits, cars, star wars, music, the titanic and trains.

Well, even though I'm a member here since 2006 I hope that you got to know me a little better and to see people back on the forums...

Regards,

Erik

Well, ok. My name is Štěpán. I´m from Czech Republic. I´m 20 yo student (studying railway transportation at Pardubice university). I play OTTD - respective TTD from my grammar school, it might be 10 or 11 years back.

When I´m not at school or not playing OTTD, I play other PC games - such as Terraria or Eurotruck Simulator II. Or play guitar - in a band.

And I´m active member of czech tycoon community :)

Hi, everyone! I really should have started here instead of those thread-killing mega posts about space transport sims...

I'm a long-time PC gamer (the first PC I bought I upgraded to 4 MB of RAM, woo!) and a fan of many genres, especially strategy, RPGs, and simulation. My professional background has taken me through the military, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, and now distribution sectors, handling documentation, production and shipment planning, and data management. I live and work in the Chicago region, although I grew up in Missouri. I still have my original CD for Transport Tycoon, but I've only been playing the Open TTD versions for a couple of months now.

I am eager to contribute whatever ideas I can, although I am sorely lacking in the graphics and programming skills that would likely be necessary to help in the actual modding. Thanks for having me!

Hello,

More of a 're-introduction' than anything, as it's been a good 3 or 4 years since I last touched TTD or this forum.

Anyway, I've thought about the game a few times over the past few months and due to an empty weekend I finally re-downloaded and re-educated myself, hopefully will be playing often again!

Hi there.

I just joined a couple of days ago and missed this intro thread.

Introducing myself: Well, I'm rather impressed to realize I've been playing this for almost 20 years! Back from the TT days, pre "deluxe". Despite having made the switch to open ttd at some point I have been away for a few years -- something like 6 or 7. And boy am I surprised to come back! I'm also realizing how much I didn't get "into" the open ttd world (no idea why I didn't at the time though) and am still a bit lost amongst so many awesome newGRFs people have created, not to mention all the other amazing features added to the trunk in the past few years. It's mind blowing! It's easy to see this is an amazing community.

One little dirty secret about me: I've never played a multiplayer game! I was always (and still am) a bit afraid of the "persistence" thing. Being able to play for an hour or two, create a company in this time and just have to abandon it because one needs to take a break? I'm still unsure. But I need to try it at some point I guess. It does seem perfect to play with friend(s) though. Just unfortunately I don't know any who plays it. I tried to get my girlfriend into it recently but not much success. She didn't like fiddling with trains because "signals are too complicated" (although we only had one line), and road only didn't exactly amuse her either. But I'd assume this story might repeat itself with other couples? :mrgreen:

I'm at the moment trying to find ways for the game to be more challenging in every way I can. I don't like snowballing after the first successful train line and then money is never a problem again. On the other hand, I like competition and I didn't find a way for the AI to properly survive in very harsh difficulty settings yet. And I've tried quite a few. At this point I'm thinking it would be a godsend to have different difficulty options for AI and for the player. For example: High running costs for humans and low running costs for AI. And maintenance costs on for humans and off for AI. I think those two would already help a whole lot to make the game more interesting to play single player!

On a last note of introduction: Yes, I write too much. :mrgreen:

tl;dr: Hi, and a big thank you for all those who contribute to this awesome game that just never gets old.

Hello everyone,

I'm a 32 year old guy from the Netherlands. I've played TTD on the old 486-25 of my father, and subsequently on the pentium 1, pentium 3, my own athlon2500 and now the dual core I replaced the athlon with. At first I played the original. For modern windows pc's I needed a patched version by Fish you probably recognize. Ever since I had to upgrade to windows 8 the patched version didn't work anymore, so I googled for a new version, and I found OpenTTD.

You guys actually created your own version of the game.

Whaaaaaaat? That is awesome in so many ways I can't begin to describe!

Downloaded it. Created a map. How big would I like it to be? How about maximum size? So, what do I have? Map. Scroll, scroll, scroll, scroll... It's freaking endless! I could have the full seven competitors in here and never actually meet any of them! And then the game tried to launch one. It failed. Apparently I had to download an AI. So I did. Curious to see how good it is. There were two major flaws to the old TTD: 1. It was too easy to create a profitable company. 2. The AI was not smart enough to be anything remotely close to a challenge. It'd be awesome if you guys managed to tackle those two.

And even if the AI is still weak, there is multiplayer! Not that I have the time for that, but oh my, am I going to make some, and organize a LAN party with a friend of mine to play this old baby again! Together! Never done that before. That's going to be epic!

Thanks a lot! :D
