I didn't play the game since some time now and I have alltogether around 10 Hours of gameplay. But I want to do more and more, so I'm looking for addons/mods that add a lof of new stuff to the game, so that I have a big goal (Expanding Cities and Industry, transport as much as I can, make a megacity and so on) so what are the most essential mods/addons for the base game?
Base Music Sets: OpenMSX | Scott Joplin Anthology | Traditional Winter Holiday Music | Modern Motion Music
Other Projects: 2CC Trams | Modern Waypoints | Sprite Sandbox & NewGRF Releases | Ideabox | Town Names | Isle of Sodor Scenario | Random Sprite Repository
Misc Topics: My Screenshots | Forgotten NewGRFs | Unfinished Graphics Sets | Stats Shack | RoadTypes?
Alternatively, you can try using some NewGRF's that add earlier transportation methods and use an earlier start date. For example, with eGRVTS, 2cc tram set, and Sailing Ships, I really enjoy starting 1850-1900.
The real takeaway is: Figure out what you enjoy most in the game, and find NewGRF's that expand on that
I disagree. AI is an essential add-on that is important for singleplayer. Without AI, you will play singleplayer with 0 competition, which might not be really challenging. That's a glaring omission in OpenTTD IMHO, because even TTD had a built-in AI.There are no essential addons or mods. OpenTTD in itself is regularly updated (at least annually, frequently 2-3 times a year) to fix bugs and add new features. Any mods or addons provided just add different things, none of which are necessary for gameplay or fix anything that's broken.
Sadly, OpenTTD does not ship with any default AI so far. It would be great if a default AI will be added to OpenTTD. Maybe it could be a (semi-?)official side project like OpenGFX. That would greatly resolve a lot of potential confusion that newbies get.

I suggest SimpleAI for a start. It's not perfect, but it does it job OK and does not crash.
Definitely SimpleAI is the most essential mod/addon for the base game.what are the most essential mods/addons for the base game?
