For those of you that missed my earlier threads: I've embarked on a long-term project to create a working virtual model of British Railways using OpenTTD.

I do have better things to do with my time, but this is how I avoid doing them.

Bumping with Hambleton Junction.
Do the roads also conform to the real thing?
Not really, no. There are a few bus routes running, as well as the National Express long-distance motor-coaches, but that's all. Maybe I'll improve the roads later on, with motorways and such.

I don't know anything more specific than this, but it sounded like the Innsmouth Look to me. Intriguing that they both agreed that the place was creepy, even though they didn't know each other before that day and definitely hadn't been there together.
Whoops, I'm fucking retarded and got my tabs mixed up. Sorry for the inconvenience

Hey, good to see you're back, openttd uk guy!

Any chance of a peek at clapham junction and waterloo? I'm curious to see if you're including every platform considering the geographic and space constraints of the tile based gameplay

wtf happened to this thread? when did /n/ get so cancerous

Australia woke up.
/pol/ linked us after the AoC thing. it's turning into a fast board, the days of a single thread lasting for a year or more are over, and every thread will eventually devolve into screeching about niggers and trannies
/pol/niggers. Thinking about jumping ship to 1chan.

Seconding that question. I see you're working with a patch to include the time of day, but you'll still have to manage building the correct distances and travel times with OpenTTDs tile grid system.
And a full-day timetable would also require the trains to be stabled somewhere.
Look at the screenshot properly you dunce.
But I like that

I will admit that the geography is slightly fudged in places.

But depots and stabling sidings and suchlike have been included.

In my simulation, London Underground, Galsgow Metro and Tyne & Wear Metro are monorail. DLR and High Speed 1 are maglev.

Although, thinking of replacing sub-surface Underground lines (District, Metropolitan etc) with ordinary tracks, so as to enable accurate replication of LU/BR interfaces like Point Pleasant Junction. Thoughts?
Give us a peek at Glasgow.

I have no idea how terrain editing in OpenTTD works, were you not able to edit the rivers so that Govan and Renfrew weren't north of the Clyde?

Terrain editing is a piece of piss, me learning the exact course of every river in Britain is a little bit more difficult. As I've said before, a lot of the geography is fudged and the whole project (especially in the vicinity of large cities) should be regarded as a work-in-progress.
Have you got round to doing the West Highland Line?
I've just recently gotten into openttd and I'm surprised it isn't discussed more outside of transit discussion circles. Also does /n/ have a server up?
Tbh I'm more of a Simutrans guy myself, but that's an even smaller community. I don't quite like the OpenTTD system of being able to transport cargo anywhere, whereas in Simutrans pax and goods have a set destination you have to deliver them to.

Alo pak128.Britain is life.
There used to be a thread on /vr/ but it kept dying due to inactivity.
>Although, thinking of replacing sub-surface Underground lines (District, Metropolitan etc) with ordinary tracks, so as to enable accurate replication of LU/BR interfaces like Point Pleasant Junction. Thoughts?
That would mean replacing all of the tube lines as well, since aside from the Northern and W&C they all connect to each other.

I'm a massive hypocrite anyway in terms of striving for accuracy, since I'm just pretending that the Channel Tunnel doesn't exist (otherwise I would have to do all of continental Europe and parts of Asia and my poor 10-year-old PC would definitely not be able to handle that). One more little bodge won't hurt. I shall assuage my conscience by telling myself that this is an idealised representation of Britain's railways rather than a perfect one.

Pic related.
Cheers, even the station gfx for Luton and the Parkway Station both look accurate, that's good stuff.

Might do.

Sheer coincidence, I assure you. Or maybe a half-remembered Driver's Eye View film by Video 125. I like those.
I’m not very good at micro-management games, is this micro-management? Is it easy? Because I can manage grand strategy, I’m usually a 6-8/10 with that but micro-management was just never my thing.
how good is openttd? how does it compare to simutrans?

The game is more set up for macro-management, it's true, but with the assistance of a few spreadsheets I am choosing to micro-manage. For my own pleasure.
