Hello all, i'm new to TT-Forums yet a very early player of TTO and now on TTDX/Patched, the best game in the world :D (after Tie Fighter :P)

yup it's very great, i also love the trams in the city where i live in czech republic, we have there a Skoda factory producing trains, trams and buses. Here's the last trams we have :

"The low-floor tram "Astra" by Skoda Dopravní Technika, Inekon, Kolejova Doprava and Elin EBG Traction. You see that CKD Praha is not the only Czech manufacturer of trams! Innotrans 1998, Berlin."

Old style Tatra / Praha-CKD:

I want ask ... I posted it on newsgroup but I curious what people from TT-Forums think about that:

Do you play Railroad Tycoon 2 ??? There was a nice stations ...
Was it better if stations would have diffirent graphic ?? for example in 1920-1940 very old graphic 1940-1960 old graphic, ... , 2040-2060 very futurisitc style ...

I'm asking because I found many graphics of stations on that page (look 3 post up)

well i dont think tt2 is very appreciated around here, first because i think some people cant play it on there computers and in second i think its crap, the ttd is a lot better, even if the graphics are not that good it is way better.

I've bought RT2, and i didn't like it... the locomotives graphics are fine, but the game is too impersonal, don't you think so ? I prefer 100 times better to play TTD. And i hope that one day we'll get a TTD game with improved graphics... but still, i don't like RT2. I've played it no more than one hour each time...

The idea is fine, yes, when train designs change, why not stations too :)

Greetings. I am what we call in french an "expat" (expatrié) which means practically that i'm a french living in the czech republic (for love and work reasons) :) I'm system administrator for the French Institute of Prague (depending from embassy) and approved system administrator for managing the network of the french ministry of foreign affairs in the czech republic.

These forums are cool and i'm an old tycoon die-hard :)

little precision: i'm not old, just 24 :)
