who's played transport tycoon??

i'm getting back into it quite a bit thanks to windows xp compatable versions getting around.. damn that game is fun..

the fun you have setting up train networks getting them to go to the right place and keeping the goods moving.. gets a bit difficult having 27 trains going to 1 station tho.

Re: who's played transport tycoon??

www.tt-forums.net

d/l locations for a win2k/xp compatible versions there.. and the famous 'ttdpatch to mod the game so it runs under 2k well and make it easy/hard with cheat switches(or switches to increase the max no. of trains etc).

i got one game where the inflation has gone right up.. but it means i've got 4 bil in the bank :) .. this is a game with 100+ trains and 40 or more planes i think, and they're all running full length, big loads, across long distances..

by the way, those 27 trains are all running either wood, or goods. all to the same sawmill. (from three different forests) and i want to have just one station, coz its more challenging that way. thing is, i used a cheat to skyrocket the production of wood, so i probably still need another 5-10 trains, then another few trains to cart the extra goods. argh!!

Re: who's played transport tycoon??

good to see this game make a comeback.

There used to be some sort of limit on the number of buses / trains . . . have they revised the limit upwards ?

Re: who's played transport tycoon??

I thought Win XP was meant to "mimic" the older operating systems

Re: who's played transport tycoon??

yeh it does mimic all prev versions of windows, and it does it reasonalby well (ever tried to play redalert2 on a P4 HT or dual CPU computer? then set it to 98/ME mode) but it cant do MS-DOS stuff.

Re: who's played transport tycoon??

Great game
if there is a patch to run under winXP, i'm there!!

I got held up with the limit as well on trains etc. I think there was one on stations as well??

One thing I never really bothered with was buses. too slow, not enough money in.

Once you get up and running, money isnt a problem.
