OpenTTD “Birth of Industry” Tournament

That’s right, it’s time for another OpenTTD Tournament! After the voting has concluded, the community on the Megacycle Entertainment Discord server have selected a scenario I came up with called the “Birth of Industry”. This one is pretty interesting, so let me tell you about it.

“Birth of Industry” is going to start everyone on a pretty standard map/loan/settings load out but with one significant difference: there won’t be any industry anywhere on the map. Players will need to start off with passenger lines and will be manually prospecting and building up industries (and raw materials) across the playing field. They then will have to have at least one transportation line per industry. For example, one line that takes wood to a sawmill would count that as completed.

Here were the rules of the match:
– Map Size: 512×512
– Max Loan: $500k USD
– Duration (Game): 1980-2000
– City Layout: 3×3
– Fund New Industry: Enabled
– Duration (IRL): 4 hours and 30 mins to 5 hours
– Tournament Duration: 2 Weeks (Sept 11th – Sept 26th) 2023
– Players must build each raw material and industry (except bank) and have one transportation link setup.
– NewGRF: Raised Landscape Costs

When the tournament wraps up, I’ll include a link to the summary video. Want to join the next tournament? Be sure to join our Discord server and meet some new friends along the way.
