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.
