I actually have issues with the fact that they have capitalised the F in forum on their forums. How do we distinguish between theirs and this site without adding (un)-official to the name? :roll:

Actually, from a marketting viewpoint, "unofficial" might be an advantage. The searcher sees it and thinks "AHA! It's unofficial! They will be revealing secrets!". 8)

Well, we've never been official in terms of the actual Transport Tycoon games, no.

Never been so, probably only OpenTTD. We're just the "most preferred".

I meant when referring to either site on either site or in spoken conversation.

Ah, yes right. Maybe we should rename our lovely forum to TT-Forums.net as the large picture on the left top said it ?

EDIT : or assuming that at last there's a whole new forum for this thread, we can refer it as TT2013 forum / TTM forum...

That could work. Lets see what Owen has to say.

Also, it seems like we need a wiki that contains what's between basic - advanced part of this game, also specific game mechanics. I think that many newcomers are either totally new to the game or only remember it from a short memory of the past or so...

It's very strange that there are suddenly two "Transport Tycoon Forums". One from the early 2000s being the unofficial, and the official one being from 2013. Of course, having these as the official forums would also not work since we heavily feature OpenTTD and the like.

I did of course offer our services, but understandably they would more than likely prefer to maintain complete control over their own forums.

On Facebook, Transport Tycoon asked people to give one tip for beginners. I said 'go to tt-forums.net' and it got 2 likes (thanks orudge and LocoRoller!) but it was the only message that didn't get a like from TT. Also TT then replied about going to their forum. Hmmm...

Nah, +1 on that case.

Wouldn't it be great if Transport Tycoon (2013) was available for Nintendo 3DS? :roll:

You seriously think this was a joke?! :shock: It wasn't! I would build a shrine to Chris Sawyer in my backyard :bow: if this actually happened!
