Some of you might remember the two screenshots I posted in the Random Screenshots thread a while (page 27) ago - I finally decided to create my own screenshot thread. Here I'll continuously post screenshots of my games that I usually run as multiplayer games with a few friends in OTTD CargoDist with as many NewGRFs as technically possible.
The current game is a 2048x64 game used by 3 players in total (including alluke, another member of this forum) with a special focus (well, at least my personal one) on developing a cross-map main line with a few branches and a high-speed railway. It's quite old already (and pretty saturated), having started roughly 500 in-game years ago from an automatically generated map using French town names. A total of three companies are active:
1) Azurian Railways: operator of the intercontinental airports at Cognac and St. Flour and the railway network
2) STT (75% owned by Azurian Railways): low-cost carrier for passengers using buses, ferries and mid-size aircraft, and generic cargo company using road vehicles and ships. Operator of the St. Flour Metro and two freight trains on a short, isolated railway.
3) Silly Line (75% owned by Azurian Railways): small cargo company operating 11 trucks, 23 industrial trams and 3 freighters, but also 5 passenger ferries in the Toulon area.
I'll start with the technical stuff - a map overview and the GRF list - and will then show you where everything began in this first post. Further pics (partially showing the development) of the main line itself will be added in a couple of hours.
Of course, comments, criticism and suggestions are welcome.
