It's still pretty easy to make money, but there are some new features which can slow your roll. If you enable inflation, it will likely bankrupt you as its pretty broken. To compensate for this, there are now variables for both infrastructure maintenance and airport maintenance costs, you can tweak them to what you like. NewGRFs give you new vehicles, new industries/economies which can make how much money you have to sink into something go up. If thats not enough, there are NewGRFs that simply allow you to increase the base costs.

Lots of AIs out there now, some will play against you in a friendly manner, and some will most likely clobber you. AI's can't cheat anymore, either, so they do it fair and square.

Hey everyone,

I'm not new around here, but in a way this is a new beginning.


I am consolidating everything from multiple usernames to one, (I was sapphire united, here)

I started out as War_Party in the openttd universe and all I would do is go around and grief.

I spent a lot of years spamming videos on these forums and being a dick, but I'd like to put all of that past me if you are willing to give me a clean slate.

I think Dave will know what I am talking about.

Moving into the future I will be working on my cross-platform tabletop/online game called orbit and printing various models through my 3D print lab series.

Good to meet you all again.

Hello Sapphire United,

Please include a line in your signature stating your old username for the next couple of months, say half a year. Thank you :)

Greetings, as the user name implies I'm greeter. I'm 28 years old, living in Canada, and I'm an apprentice electrician. With any luck I may get to work with trains for real some day. In the mean time though, it's fun to play OpenTTD. I never did play the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe, but rather found out about this game through a Wikipedia article about Linux gaming back in 2013. I was on an ancient computer back then and, well, OpenTTD was one of the few games in the list that actually ran on it, so I became hooked rather quickly. I have a newe computer now that can handle the much more demanding games, but I still play this one frequently. Hoping to get a little more involved in the OpenTTD community now. Cheers everyone.

Hello guys!
I have joined the forum few months ago, but overlooked this thread. Anyway, I'm stravagante and I have been playing this game on and off for quite some time, but never really got into it. Anyway, I'm learning a lot...just recently started my first proper game with MLs and SLs, and I'm still learning about junctions and signaling (priority's are really giving me a headache :evil:). But one day, when I grow up, I hope to be good transport tycoon. :D
Oh, and yes, I am not patient person so I cheat. 8o

Evening all,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but I just wanted to say hello to everyone and thanks the forums for the help I've gotten so far by lurking and all the great content that you create.

I played the original TTD when I was 14 in 2001 I think and then have flirted on and off with open ttd. I'm just a casual player really, but enjoy the game lots and keep coming back to it.
Keep up the good work!

Stu

Hi there, I am a new person. I decided to join as I love OpenTTD, so I guess that's why I'm here! Sorry if I sound a bit vague.

Hey,

As someone who loves chemistry, I came up with the username "chemie", which is Dutch for chemistry.

I have been playing openTTD for a couple of years on and off, never de-installed the game though :mrgreen:

Cheers!

Hello, I'm Thomas (call me Tom if you want), I'm 11 years old (12 on the 20th) and I live, and am from Hull in England. I recently (last Wednesday) started secondary school. I like trains, cars and politics, and I joined because of Locomotion, but I hardly play that now. I instead play MSTS (because it's fun and I don't want to get stuck in the vicious cycle of capitalism that is Dovetail Games' Train 'Simulator'), The Powder Toy (because you can blow cities up with nuclear weapons, which is great fun), OpenTTD (but not that much in honesty, as you'll find out later. I'm working on a map of Hokkaido (fictional)) and, the game that I play the most, get your spears and pitchforks ready, Simutrans. I enjoy watching Top Gear, fiddling with photos in paint.net, making up pieces about why Tony Blair should go to prison, and imagining things up (mostly ridiculous things that wouldn't happen in the near future). I am rather pessimistic (that's just me all the time) and am in real life socially awkward, which means I struggle heavily on social matters. I can write on a computer though, mainly my political views (either socialist propaganda or the real thing, depending on where you come from) and jokes.
Please support this cause - it's for a train enthusiast friend of mine.

After lurking for some time, I figured I'd create an account here as well. I am Michael, I'm 26 and I'm a programmer from The Netherlands.

If you think you recognise my user name, you probably saw it in relation with OpenRCT2. I am a long-time team member of the project, having joined it in May 2014. Joining that project is one of the best things I have ever done, even though it takes up a lot of time - and every now and then frustration. (Mainly about users treating us like servants. Luckily, it's a small minority!) I started playing RCT1 in 2000; RCT2 in 2003 and never really stopped. The project allowed me to fix things that had bothered me for years. Along the way I learnt an incredible amount of stuff, like the C programming language, mastering Git, working in a team and dealing with the process around software development in general, like dealing with bugs, feature requests and users.

Besides OpenRCT2 I regularly play OpenTTD. Looking at the forums it's incredible what's possible with the right NewGRFs. My own saves look pretty dull in comparison.
Many people around the OpenRCT2 project also play OpenTTD and the lead dev and I at least also play Locomotion. OpenTTD is frequently used as an example, and we have also taken window code from OpenTTD 0.1, for example. In some areas OpenTTD has taken the chestnuts out of the fire for us, although RCT2 is quite a different beast, so not everything is directly applicable.

I also have an interest in trains, mostly Dutch ones, although I like the IC125 and the Londen Underground as well. (I have a fondness for underground rail in general.)

I'm a PHP programmer in daily life, working for a company that has runs the on-line loyalty programmes for Campina (the largest diary chain in the Netherlands), Heineken, Texaco and some other companies.

I'm not sure how often I'll post here, because my schedule is pretty packed as it is with a full-time job, a 1:40 commute (x2), a long-distance relationship and OpenRCT2 all competing for time. (That is not counting stuff like cooking, cleaning and shopping. And sleeping.)

If you have any questions about me or about OpenRCT2 in general, do not hesitate to ask!

Hello there :D

Sylvain here, 25 years old french men. I'm currently living in Paris, and I have been playing this game since my father has his first PC (in mid 1990-ish).
I'm also a volunteer in railway perservation in France : I'm training to become a fireman on a steam locomotive, like in the old days of railroad.

Cheers !
