FriendlyFox plays OpenTTD!

Post by harrydouthwaite »

Hi everyone! Wow... looking at my history it's been over ten years since I last posted anything on these forums. Every now and again I do enjoy diving back into OpenTTD. On my desktop I'm running an older version (1.3.2) which I finally decided to make some gameplay videos. There are eight up now, with more possibly coming at some point. Please forgive me for the quality of them as I was still getting used to Bandicam at the time.

So yes, I go by a few aliases. One of them is FriendlyFox.

I had intended to start this series from the very beginning of the map, but my earliest savegame wasn't until 1958 so I had to suffice for that, switching over to an inactive AI company to start with "Humble Beginnings" - followed by "Paying off the Debt" and "Motor Mania". "Junction Function" returns to the main company for upgrading the main line between Brudingville and Albertborough, with a new branch and improvements to the junction at Brudingville. This is followed by "Expanding the Network", split into two parts, upgrading the rest of the mainline to the terminus, with new trains and destinations to the west. "New Opportunities" returns to the former fledgling AI company with a new mainline intersecting the existing one with the main company, just east of Albertborough. Lastly "When Industries Close" reveals hard times in the 1970s with closing oil wells, as well as other industries not serviced by the two companies.

Here are some screenshots for the general progress of my OpenTTD empire. It'll have to be three images per post as that's all that seems to be allowed...

Just adding in some YouTube links for the videos... Here is Episode 3, titled "Motor Mania".
Sometimes, Road Vehicles can do a better job than trains. Especially where an industry's production is moderate, but the distance isn't too far away. Buses can make good money too between towns!

Episode 4 of my series with a return to Brudingville Transport, for a necessary upgrading of the junction from the main line to the Linnley branch - complicated by nearby tunnels and stations. Junction Function!

I wasn't particularly happy with the first recordings of 'Expanding the Network' previously in two parts, so I rerecorded it with some minor improvements, and showing in full detail what I did. For a full list, see the description on the YouTube video!
