I was wondering if any one plays Transport Tycoon Deluxe here still, For people who don't know about this game its was a game released in 1995 and is a 8bit 2D isometric game where the objective is to build a transport company with trucks, buses, Plane, boats and Trains.
Any who, For who don't know there is a thing called OpenTTD where you can customize the game and add in new features and also Play online, I was playing this game till 5am this morning and it is an Addictive game for me and was wondering if any one from the L4Y community happens to play this as it is still popular online, i hosted a server last night and had 7 of us and looked in other servers that where maxed out even though its a old game alot of people still customize it, Maybe we could add it in here?
For Open TTD client check out http://www.openttd.org/en/

Amazing game, I had the original as a demo wwaaaaaay back when in the early 90's, got the full version followed by Deluxe not long after.

Brother and I had many a game via serial cable, always working together to make the best transport system possible. He was always good at the little runs whilst I could easily setup the huge interconnected bulk lines where you'd have a single trunk line with multiple offshoots going to each of the industries. Great fun

OpenTTD is the first game I fired up on both my new laptops... just to see if Vista could run such an old game. Does perfectly... might have been designed for DOS but it runs fantastically with OpenTTD.

Not played for a while, its even installed on my work PC

I saw this a while ago and thought it looked good. Never got around to buying it. Shame really seems really good, a Precursor to Rollercoaster Tycoon me thinks. I know its by the same person, just cant remember which came first.
Trying to find old players. Anyone about? Drop me a PM or reply to this thread:

Well transport Tycoon came out in 1995 while roller coaster tycoon was released in 1999, i was going through a whole bunch of my step fathers game when i came across Transport Tycoon Deluxe (PC) and Transport Tycoon (PS1) I have been playing it for the last few nights now and got right back into the game play, So far im sticking with the trains and the Primary source for my Income in the game and do i make crazy tracks, some times i get lost in what iam doing.

Iam also running it on Vista with Open TTD, It is a great game online as you can also do sort of team work and helping if you know the set password on the Company, Recently we did a LAN of a map and spent from 5pm Tuesday to 11am Wednesday building up all these tracks etc really fun game play

For people who want to get into the game with changing things like textures etc check out this site which has a download section for Transport Tycoon goods http://www.transporttycoon.net/downloads#ttdalter

Guy who did the game was 'Chris Sawyer'. The sequel was 'Locomotion' back in 2004 - got that sitting in a draw somewhere as well. Basically took TT and made a 3D version of it - the front of the manual of Locomotion states something like Rollercoaster Tycoon started off as a 3D TT or something like that...

Sadly whilst I liked the game (well worth checking out if you like TT but fancy it in 3D instead) it couldn't beat the fond memories of the original. I find myself playing TTD (via OpenTTD) from time to time but Locomotion sits gathering dust...

it isnt just Rollercoaster Tycoon and Locomotion which are 3D if you own a version of the PS1 version of transport tycoon you can do a 3d view of the game etc isnt that great but you can zoom into towns etc all 3d and watch your trains etc in 3D views, Makes it alot better for making train tracks behind things as you can see them with out going into the options and selecting transparent buildings check out the video for the 3D mode on PS1

But even with the 3D version i prefer the 2D isometric style for this type of game

Same, for me there was a demo that came on a CD (novel back then) that had a limited (2 year playing time) before it stopped the game. I must have spent weeks playing that first two years over and over... back then 2 years took the new (back then anway) PC about an hour to go through... 2 years on my laptop now can be skipped through in a few minutes
