With expansion limit on, RailwAI doesn't want to become larger than other companies around. If you would join the game and build your own routes, it might expand again. It can sometimes occur that planes aren't used, depending on the shape of cities. It might decide later to start with planes, but it requires at least enough cash. Thanks for your bug reports, those will be solved in the next release (and I found 2 more bugs myself that were already longer present).

The AI seems to be confused by narrow gauge tracks. It builds dual tracks (which have a speed limit) and attaches narrow gauge wagons (which have a still lower speed limit and very low capacity) to a normal engine; as a result, the train goes at 20 km/h when 120 km/h would be possible with normal wagons.

It was indeed confused by the fact that only some carriages and track types have speed limits. I have fixed some bugs and added more options to regulate the company expansion. Therefore version 25 (now available) should always work better than 24. The changelog:
  • Bugfix: loading a savegame while creating a new service with ships
  • Bugfix: do not send helicopters to hangars instead of the terminal
  • Bugfix: repairing pathfinder was sometimes unable to restore paths along diagonal tracks
  • Bugfix: savegames while using the repairing pathfinders sometimes caused bad behaviour after reloading
  • Trains: better support for narrow gauge newGRF
  • AI Settings: more options to limit company expansion

Hi. Where can I download this AI? Or where can I download AI: trAIns

What is the best AI for Railway only? I´m looking for Railway AI because i like to play with ships and Aircraft. So i´m looking for AI which will build Trains instead of me. Admiral AI sucks. Admiral AI build only simple trains.

Hi Jacobian,

This AI is available via the in-game content. After starting openTTD, you can choose the option 'check online content' and search for RailwAI. When you select RailwAI, you can press the download-button on the right to download it.
In order to play with/against RailwAI, you should tell openTTD to use it. After downloading, you can select 'AI/Game Script Settings' from the main screen in openTTD. Here you can select the artificial competitors and configure them.

Enjoy!
