For the last six years, I have been using OpenTTD to build a working virtual replica of the UK rail network.

Are there really so many patches of green in London?

Are you including the tube, light rail etc.?
>>
>>1048097
Those are all very good questions.

1) Cheat codes, bro. I'm not playing competitively, so why care about in-game currency?

2) No, but the game forces you to leave a gap of a certain number of tiles between every town that you place (or in this case, parts of London that might as well be their own town). I'm going to expand the towns, which will fill in the gaps, later.

3) Yes, I plan to include all of the following transportation systems:

National Rail
High Speed 1 (as far as Folkestone)
High Speed 2 (maybe)
London Underground
Docklands Light Railway
Crossrail
Croydon Tramlink
Tyne & Wear Metro
Midland Metro
Manchester Metrolink
Glasgow Metro
Sheffield Supertram
Nottingham Express Transit
SEWM (if it gets built)
Greater Bristol Metro (if it gets built)
London Buses
National Express Coaches
Local buses in various areas

How'd you got the idea to do it?

Also, my deepest respects for you.
>>
>>1048091
If you actually let the game run, do the networks return a realistic profit? Because as game mechanics go, it looks like you've got brutally overbuilt infra. that won't be able to handle many trains. Your junctions are ugly as sin.
>>
>>1048106
When I was 10, my dad took me to the Transport Museum at Covent Garden. I was immediately hooked. He bought me a tube map poster which went on my bedroom wall and I've stared at it every day ever since. (Until it fell apart, that is.)

That was when I started to think about having an entire railway network to run myself, like loads of little boys do. However, I couldn't afford to do conventional model railways, so I turned to computers. Since then, I've been building this thing mostly just to see if it could actually be done.
>>
>>1048107
My PC can't handle running every train in the country at once, so I don't know whether they make money. But they probably do.

What's wrong with my junctions, though?

>My PC can't handle running every train in the country at once
>What's wrong with my junctions
This doesn't really apply to your case since you're not trying to build something that works according to gameplay mechanics - but your system can handle more trains faster if you use signals properly, design junctions so trains don't have to slow down or stop - and doing this means even a pretty basic computer can handle running a large network. Path signals are what chew up CPU time.

Pic related is an optimized connection between a station and a mainline track.
>>
>>1048135
But real railways don't look anything like that. I'm trying to emulate how they do trains in the real world.

And I don't use path signals, just block signals.
>>
>>1048135
And here's what happens when you take optimized design to its logical conclusion - it may not be pretty or realistic, but it will handle as many trains as you can fill with cargo and allow them all to keep moving at maximum speed.

>>1048131
All of 4chin, even the blue boards are 18+, see the global rules.
>>
>>1048139
Mmkay. You're right, that is neither pretty nor realistic. And I don't want that.

The way I see it, if the real railways work the way that they do, surely I can get my network to work if it's laid out the same way?
>>

So you have no life?
Are you confined to a wheelchair?
Do you have no immune system and have to live in a plastic bubble?
Is there ANY reason that you'd waste so much time on something so useless and pointles, rather than GOING OUTSIDE and playing with the other kids? Maybe even (shocking idea!) TALKING TO GIRLS?

This is even worse than sperging out about riding buses.

For fuck's sake go get a life already.
>>
>>1048118
Power level aside, this is actually pretty fucking awesome. Three questions:

1. For how long have you been playing OpenTTD?
2. How often and how obsessively do/did you work on this?
3. Have you played other transport simulation games?
>>
>>1048168
I do do other things, you know. This is just something I'll do a little work on in my free time, that's why it's taken years and years to get anywhere.

>>1048173
1. I only found OpenTTD because I was trying to find the best train simulator with which to get this idea off the ground. So six years.

2. As mentioned above, I don't treat this like a full-time job or anything, I'll work on it for an hour or so every couple of days, sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less.

3. I briefly dallied with Transport Giant and Locomotion, but OpenTTD just felt...right. I think that's because I loved Rollercoaster Tycoon as a child. Chris Sawyer is an excellent game designer. Yes, I know he made Locomotion too, but that doesn't have such a dedicated development/modding community, as far as I know.
>>
Why OpenTTD, specifically? Is that really the best rail network sandbox?
If you could have written your own sandbox specifically for this project, what would you like to have done differently?
>>
>>1048256
That's a very good question. As mentioned earlier, I think I settled on OpenTTD because of my affinity with the games of Chris Sawyer. However, if I was /g/ enough to mod it myself, I would make it so you can have more than 15 transport companies. Some of the train operators have to share a slot, which, as I'm sure you can imagine, makes me feel very uncomfortable.
>>
Impressive work OP, good job.
>>
>>1048257
You should probably hit up the OpenTTD IRC and ask a developer to bump up the company limit. I suspect the only reason the limit is so low is because no one has shown a need for it.

An earlier iteration did include all of Ireland, but having now expanded Britain to fit in all towns and villages that fell foul of our dear friend Dr Beeching, it's no longer possible. My PC can't render a map big enough.

Both the dutch station and metro tracks GRFs you're using also have the option of covering tracks up with concrete tiles so the lines and stations only appear as large plazas, which actually looks somewhat decent.
>>

But doesn't that turn the entire line into one long station? And does it even work on diagonals?

I just tried it out myself, the metro tracks have a setting to enable covered tracks, both with grass and concrete. And those are normal tracks, not stations, works with diagonals and tunnel entrances.

In this screenshot, the station tiles themselves are uncovered metro track, there the cover comes from the dutch stations.

will you also get houses or roads on top of the tracks or is it just cosmetic?

I wish i did but i probably havent heard anything that you wont have heard before, they have been talking about re-opening one or both of them for years now, personally i cant see it happening or it would have started by now. Over summer when i do alot of cycling i know a path that can lead you do one of the curves so you can climb up the embankment to the old track bed, everytime its been raining it feels like its about to have a landslide up there. As for the Skem branch, if they re-build the station in the same place and run the track to Rainford Junction then it will either have to go through, or around a housing estate built over the original route of the track and over/under the motorway, if you ask me Skem will just end up with another guided busway like what happened from Leigh-Manchester, im guessing that will happen alot more around the country instead of actually bringing pre-Beeching railways back

Do you plan to use trams? I was thinking (very briefly) about doing actually working replica of Prague, just trams plus maybe trains, but I figured I'm not autistic enough. City transportation is cool to look at, and it's not even all that hard to make it work, if you use timetables properly.

I think the council in Bristol were thinking of a plan to have a tram which goes to the airport from the city centre, lines going to the east and north of Bristol from the centre and one to Bath as a tram train. I think they want to increase the frequency of trains on the current network and reopen the Portishead line and a few new stations too. Then again it's the UK so nothing will probably happen, here's the link anyway to the plan, there's nothing solid yet though.

>>1070747
>City transportation is cool to look at, and it's not even all that hard to make it work, if you use timetables properly.
Trams are fine, underground lines are a bit more tricky in OpenTTD due to the game's engine but OP has managed it to an extent in London, and this >>1049277 anon built a "subway" too. OP said earler that he wants to add all the tram networks in the UK in the future, so it will come soon.

Also OP do you know about the upcoming 4chan Spring Babby Cup? It's a football tournament that we play in a modded version of PES between different boards a few times a year, and /n/ are playing this weekend on Friday and Sunday. We had a poll here a few weeks ago and you got on the team as a defender under the name of King of OTTD. To celebrate that post a station which is near a real life football stadium, maybe even one specifcally for a stadium. More information can be found on these links if you're interested in finding out more about you being on the team.

>1) Do I actually have to do anything, or is this just a fantasy football thing?
No, you don't have to anything, it's controlled by AI but we have managers who make tactical decisions for the AI players, those managers are listed on the /n/ page and have names and trips on the right hand side of the page that they refer to themselves as, either on their boards or a general thread on /vg/ for the cup called /4ccg/. You don't have to do anything but it would be cool to possibly watch yourself play in PES, the times we play at are listed on the wiki.
>2) I said here >>1049605 that I'd like people to call me "rail-chan".
The /n/ manager is in the /vg/ thread now, I'm going to ask him if it's possible to rename you. Come around to watch the matches this weekend, they should be fun.

Have you used a height map, or adapted a flat/random world into UK?
Have you ever restarted from scratch during these 6 years? How long have your current save been running for?

Actually no, the limit is due to how the game engine works, bumping the limit would require reworking basically half of the game, including NewGRFs.

Nah bro. 8192x4096.

The world is mostly flat, with hills and mountains and what-have-you put in whenever I have a rough idea of local terrain in a certain area.

In answer to your third question, see pic related. About half of those savegames are iterations of this project, and of those, about two-thirds are corrupted from my computer running out of memory during a save attempt. Which means I have to start again.
