I want to build a server like btpro.nl.

Discuss the new AI features ("NoAI") introduced into OpenTTD 0.7, allowing you to implement custom AIs, and the new Game Scripts available in OpenTTD 1.2 and higher.

Now that's an ambitious goal.

The BTPro community runs about 20 games at any given time. Can you devote time to oversee this many games?

BTPro relies on donations to cover the costs of infrastructure. Can you secure a source of funding?

And all that multitude of games lie barren most of the time. Do we really need another bunch of empty servers? Is it worth your effort?

Start just by hosting a public multiplayer game. Try customizing your games with GRFs and game scripts. Tweak the settings. Eliminate griefers. After a month or so, reconsider whether you still want to put time and effort into it...
