Hello i am newbie on the forums! so it is nice to meet all of you. I have played tons of tycoon, and comupter games in genral, and i have been playing the transport tycoon serise for agggges, i have just recntly moved on to locomotion! With is ok, but for me northing will beat open ttd anyway, what i would like to see in this game that you are making are these things:-
1>Don't go over the top on the 3d in fact i think that the graphics in locomotion for example are fine! If anyone remembers roller coaster tycoon 2 graphics, there where prefect for that game, and then number 3 came out, and it was like FAIL!
2>BIG MAPS! like the bigger the better i say!
3>Have a mode with is just a sandbox or do what ever you want, and give us a ton of money to start off with. I hate waiting and building up my founte when all i really want to do is create the ebst transport network ever, If you don't people will jsut demand a trainer or make a cheat progam etc.
5>able to custom trains, singles track building etc.
6>I would put a heavy enfurise on making a rebus rotue system for the vehiles and a give the player the chance to make complexs train network if there want to. Do you know a progam called Bahn? that is the a good example of how you could make complex, but easy to use train networks. The basic idea is that you can give a train a unique name, or a number of trains a certain rotue, ie these 5 rote are on rotue 5. And then in bahn the points and even the singles act as waypoints, so basicly you say route 5 go left and these points and route 6 you go right. How it works with the singles, is that when route 5 goes through a single to turn it red it can turn another single somewhere eles green, or red. So you see you can create extremelly complex networks this way, Cheek out bahn as well here is the link http://www.jbss.de/hpg_eng.htm
