    This game is infinitely fun.

    You might also like Simutrans (also open source):

    http://www.simutrans.com/en/

    It does, however., play a lot different to OpenTTD. Passengers / cargo for instance, have a specific location they wish to be taken to, so you can't just dump them anywhere.

    Thankyou for the tip! I'll give that one a go too, because while it doesn't frustrate me gameplay-wise in TTD, it does frustrate my pedanticism a bit haha. It would add that degree of complexity I think is missing.

    I had a good run tonight, still coming to terms with the basics bit was able to afford my first plane which was a bit of fun. I've dialled a few things up to make it a bit more challenging, but I'm really liking it so far.

    Is there any way to have some AI competition offline in a random map game? I'd like to build against someone other than myself for a change!

    played this years and years ago, when did he finally decide to open source it? I remember the author keeping it pretty close on the forums.

    Anyone got an Aussie server to kick around on? I keep joining random games, and then getting booted for not being "registered" or for not profiting enough when modifying my train network, and it's a real blow to lose 30 minutes of game play... :(

    Have you played factorio? definitly fills the same gap (I play with biters/enemies off so its just sandbox logistics problemsolving)

    You know, I was about to say that I thought it was war driven (I'm more peace, love and mungbeans baby these days), but as you suggest, if I can turn that stuff off...

    about a year ago they removed the war requirements (and added space/infinite science to make the game effectivly open-ended). No reason to play with the aliens enabled if you dont want them

    Anyone still play? I am up for a game next week.
    I also saw a similar game on the forums somewhere. Not sure it was the one mentioned here though. Something similar to ttd.
