Totally not true. In TTD, you can't do crossing, bridges, stations, or hills in the diagonal direction, but as long as the land is flat and there's nothing in the way, you can build in a straight diagonal line as far as you want. So if you have two towns that are diagonally opposite each other, you can easily connect them, you just have the actual stations diagonal to the direction of the mainline track connecting them. In TG this will be very much harder. But it's too late to try to fix it now I guess.

Agreed, which is why I may not buy TG.

:( In Industry Giant II, it's also not possible to do diagonals, which really annoys me. But since that's about industry and not transportation, it doesn't make as big an impact.

this is about industry too!

Passengers are just another type of goods, thats the way the game sees it.

I know that, but transportation is a sideline in Industry Giant II, making the diagonals less important.

Wasn't the goal of the game to connect industries by vehicles and then transport the produced goos to the cities? What do you mean with transportation as a sideline then? I think your remark derailed somewhere.

While a train is taking the coffee beans to the roasting house, a cargo plane is already waiting to take the freshly packed coffee to the consumers as quickly as possible.

The thing that gets me about this screen is the engine shed at the back of the station with a Loco sticking out, It cant go anywhere. Just seems odd to me

That must look mighty odd!

And imagine what the passengers must think, they get onto a nice spacious plane, stretch out their legs, but then wehn the plane gets to the runway it suddenly shrinks. I don't think I'd fly with that airline again!

Hmm, can't find the thread anymore about the starting and landing :?

But here are two pics so you can see what I mean:

I like the grafix of TG but, look carfully, the airplane has no wheels, its just floating next to a odd placed engine shed, Louie pointed out :?
