[OTTD] Emperor Jake's Epic Screenshots and Videos!

Post by Emperor Jake » 13 Jan 2010 05:41

Hi everybody,
Here's something I've been meaning to put up on the forums for a while: my epic screenshot story of a transport company through time.
Anyway, enjoy, don't be afraid to ask for stuff because I still have ALL savegames, and please leave comments!

EDIT: I've restarted this thread because I have some other screenshots I want to show everyone. They are not related to the previous story.
There are also a few videos - take a look at my YouTube channel. :)

Here we go...

In the year 1820, Edward C. Pick founded a small company which provided horse and cart services between the cities of Ponsford, Futway, Brinton and Tenningville. The coaches were built by the world-famous coachbuilder Zephyris, who would contine to provide road vehicles for E. Pick and Co.

The city of Ponsford is the capital of whatever state it's in. It is currently 1820 and the company has just been founded.

(Please excuse the cropping fail)

In 1824, E. Pick and Co. , being very successful in their coach business, decided to expand their reaches. A rail line was built to carry coal from a nearby mine to the ironworks in Tenningville. The Industrial Revolution is in full swing.
THe next year, from the relatively fast income from the coal line, an iron ore route was constructed. However, the ore was high up on the tablelands, and so a steep pass had to be built to access it.

The horse-hauled coal line to the ironworks was a huge success, even if it was a little pokey.

The horses hauling the empty wagons up the steep pass. The brake van is for coming back down, so the heavy iron ore loaded wagons don't run over the horses.

Steam traction has arrived. And with it, a new passenger railway line Ponsford-Brinton-Tenningville.

(edit) Oops the first one got left out somehow!

The train pulls into Brinton rail stop. It is right next to the town's cathedral, which annoyed some priors. But Mr. Pick sad for them to be glad they have a passenger service now. And glad they were... until some time later.

The food plant in Brinton wanted to distribute its wares better, so a new train was built to carry the food to supply Brinton and Ponsford.

Happy 10th Birthday, E. Pick and Co.!

The company is 10 yeas pld and already we have 6 trains (4 in service) and 19 road vehicles!

Ponsford, vehicle lists and a network map. Happy New Year 1830!

This Clipper transports mail to some distant towns. Well, distant for 1830's times. Also, why do the horse drawn trams need catenary? Well, Mr. Pick added them in case some rams of the future might need these "wires" to run. Many people think he's crazy, but then he runs the business so well.

Brinton Railway Station has receives a second platform and passing loop to accommodate the second train due to increasing traffic.

Sorry DanMack, didn't see you there.

The trains are from an Early Rail UKRS extension http://www.tt-forums.net/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=41132
which, interestingly, you posted in! You must have forgotten! lol

Thanks,
Jake

By the way, i like the new feature that downsizeds images automatically so i dont have to crop them. :)

You could just choose to take pictures in 800x600 format. (Game Options -> Screen Resolution ->800x600)

Well, it's too late for that, I've already made all of the screenshots up until 2030 or so. So this won't be one of those short-lived companies that only go from 1920 and get sold before 2000. No, the story will continue :D

Thanks for watching, we'll be right back.

Expanding more and more... The sawmill at Geningwell, west of Ponsford. Passenger services also extend to more towns and villages in the region.
E. Pick & Co., 1843-03-02.png
The horses didn't last very long on this line. Shortly after opening, they were transferred to the trams in Ponsford and replaced by Norris 4-2-0's now puffing through the forest.
E. Pick & Co., 1843-07-11.png
In fact, horses are being completely phased out on all of our lines. The coal and iron ore lines are now steam hauled too. The horses are waiting in the siding to pull their last load of coal into the station.

Ponsford in 1844. It has grown considerably due to the regular and reliable services it is receiving from E. Pick and Co.

A new railway line has been built to transport finished timber from the sawmill to Ponsford Factory.
E. Pick & Co., 1848-05-20.png
An new type of passenger carriage that runs on bogeys enables the trains to reach the breakneck speeds of 61 km/h. Dr Dionysys Larder was not impressed that everybody made it through alive without dying of asphyxia.

The new mainline starts in Fawood and goes through Futway, Sarningville, Ronningbury and finishes in Dretown. New 4-4-0 Americans operate the line more powerfully than ever.

In 1849, construction began on an entirely new mainline and a new station in Futway. Here it is 1851 and the trains are on their first public run.

Where did you get...

a) The map(less important)
b) The sailing ships
c) The steam/horse trams
d) The roads

They just look really interesting!

nice! regarding the eGRVTS, I don't usually see the horses and all, because I play in a later (1985+) time frame. I ought to try playing in an earlier time zone. And again, nice screenies... wot wot!

Try playing with vehicles never expire on, I always do. I feel it can add variety to a game when I can choose between more vehicles to suit my needs. For this reason I also like the engine pool. Indeed it is interesting to play a 19th century game once in a while :)

Thanks for watching,

A new iron ore deposit was found near Brinton, so this siding was built to transport it to the ironworks. Loading at the farm is the company's first steam powered truck.

Here are the first steam buses and trams. The steam buses are too slow at only 4 km/h but the trams were a success.

Here is a network map as of 1866. You can see the wide expansion of new branchlines, the distant cities of Dretbridge and Lardston.
