Nope, don't think so, TTD is nice. I think even a successor made by Chris Sawmill himself wouldn't be more popular than TT(D)...

Are you redesigning TT(D) ? Remember what happened to games that tried to copy ttd and failed....
I have one suggestion for you - do not change whatever is working perfectly in TT(D). Try to implement those things in your game.
The other projects that try to imitate TTD, AFAIK, are all the same: Largely unfinished, and closed source. Closed source == has limitations that won't be overcome - you just get back to the same problems as TTD, just different . This shows promise. Yeah, it's still unfinished, but the promise of open source means that I won't be stuck with limitations like the others . Also, the promise of configurability is good also.
The fact that there's a video of a train on a track tells me that the internal engine has already made much progress, and that the authors are paying attention to getting the important things done first, and that the authors are actually determined to finish it.
I hope to contribute to its source code after the source is opened . I like TTD, and I like to program .
I wont read all the 9 pages with lots o text, but i fast-forwearded thru it, kinda, and no screeneys!
Cant nobody post a screeney?

That video was a big Joke!Prof. Frink wrote:Look at the site.
It's very early in development, but theres a video demonstration thing there and lots of screenshots...
What's so great about four engines driving thru each other at the track.
But why do some stuff for other programmers?
As i think, They make this game for all, not just for programmers?
So there was nothing to see if you are not a programmer. Actually there is nothing to see in sceenies either.
Right time to publish anything is when you got something to show for them who maybe should play the game. They said that programming help is no needed, so who the hell is one who should get anything about these pics and video?
