Transport Tycoon Deluxe inspired game OpenTTD has a new release coming

By - | Views: 14,467

OpenTTD is a free and open source sim based on the classic Transport Tycoon Deluxe, and the team have announced a new release is coming with a first Beta. While based on TTD, OpenTTD had a wide array of improvements including bigger maps, better multiplayer, dedicated servers, better AI and so much more.

Version 13.0 has a first Beta release out with these highlights:

  • Build NewGRF objects over an area with click-and-drag.
  • You can purchase land multiple tiles at a time.
  • Wider rivers on map generation.
  • Improved handling of HiDPI and mixed-DPI screens.
  • Improved layout of the finance window.
  • Some more GUI improvements like a cleaned up finance window.
  • Many bug-fixes (over 50 of them), tweaks, changes, and other additions.

One of the biggest and longest-running open source games, OpenTTD is simply magnificent for those that love the classics. A good reminder it exists if you somehow haven't heard of it.

Wider rivers? Color me interested! I don't understand that first bullet point though. How do you build things "over an era"? Oh, wait, is that supposed to be "area"? (Honestly not sure if that's a typo.)

It has to be area – era doesn't make any sense.

Recently made sure that Chris Sawyer and John Broomhall (composer) also got their dues by buying transport tycoon mobile. Not touching that version with a ten-foot pole, but the remastered music is a great drop-in for openttd ^_^

If it's a typo, it's also in the original release notes.
