Speedy: Modified OpenTTD Server

OpenTTD is an open source clone of the Microprose game “Transport Tycoon Deluxe” by Chris Sawyer. It adds new features and even a multiplayer mode but stays very true to the original.

This was a really cool game back then and today it’s even better.

Shortly after I had found OpenTTD I started to play online and opened my own server.

However, after a while I found that the multiplayer mode lacked of an important feature: there was no goal, and the game just kept on going. Usually for more than 10 hours.

This inspired me to modify my server’s source code to include a goal and high-scores.

After about 1000 lines of C++ code, I was finally finished: Players can register in-game and there’s a public high score list on the website.

The game restarts automatically a few minutes after someone has won the round. The goal consists of getting a certain company value, usually 1 to 5 million pounds. Participating players get points according to their ranking in the match.

    Is your code available anywhere? The goal servers are the best ones to play on so I’d like to see more.

    Hello Rosco, sorry to ask, but… Can we have the script or if you know, where we can find a tutorial for writing one.

    We are trying to run a OTTD server with Goals, but I am short of information about how to do this.

    Thanks for your answer man.
