I would agree to the renaming.

I think Owen should shorten the name to:
"A veritable goodly internet location wherein to discuss the techniques, merits and mechanics of Chris Sawyer's Transport Tycoon 2013".

The question will be whether we should open up a whole category for Transport Tycoon Mobile, I guess. Something along the lines of:

General Discussion
Problems, FAQs and Tutorials
Beginners

Obviously "Scenarios and Saved Games" and "Graphics, Modifications and Tools" forums won't be applicable to TTM (at least not on iOS). Although saved games may be interchangable, I suppose. I wonder if you can take an iOS saved game and use it on Android...

I think a new forum category would be acceptable. TTM is unique enough from TTD and Locomotion that it doesn't need to be a subforum.

I don't think it generates enough traffic to earn its own category yet. I'd suggest waiting until the amount of posts/topics is high enough that spreading it out over multiple forums is necessary.

We all know you hate the index being rearranged. I think a new category called Transport Tycoon Mobile works. I presume it would go as a sub category within the existing Transport Tycoon category?

1. A forum set up similar to that for Locomotion has my vote.
2. Do it now to avoid the rush.
3. Buy me an appropriate device so that I may join the party.

Yes, I thought about updating it, but figured I'd just wait until I rename the forum. ;)

It need it's own category IMO but that won't cover everything, save games are interchangeable.
I think it should something like:
General Discussion
Official News (as there is a lot of talk of more features in future updates)
Problems, FAQs and Tutorials
Saved Games and Modifications (modifying the Android version should be quite possible)
Beginners

That's still a grey area as of now, so it's irrelevant. If it gets its own forum, then I'm sure that will be added if the possibility arises.
I've been able to change some graphics in the game very very easily...

If you make a program / app for Android, once it's released / leaked you can't give strict control to it anymore ! (thanks to root mostly)

That may be true but they could refuse support for people who have modified the game using methods not provided by them. I would say we should avoid mods for now.

Since there are official forums for this mobile iteration of Transport Tycoon, perhaps it is not wise for us to try and compete with that. As it is now, not many topics have been created about this game. I see no reason to clutter this further, at least not before things start taking off.

Name it what it is:

Transport Tycoon 2013

Then make the first post locked and stickied with Official Links pointing to the web site, forums and store.

After that, let the topics fall where they may.

If there is to be a subforum, Strategies might be appropriate for game play discussions.
Problems and bugs should go to the official web site, considering that they have apparently made provisions for these.
Another stickied topic might be Reviews where tt-forum members could post their impressions.

Name it as what you believe your eyes, your memories, and your logic sees it :

LoMo (Locomotion Mobile)
