OpenTTD “City Builder” Tournament

That’s right, it’s time for another OpenTTD Tournament! For this one the “City Builder” was the theme that had the most votes. I’m really excited about this one as I’ve never given this style of gameplay a try, at least not in a tournament setting.

The “City Builder” is fairly straightforward. Players claim a town that is under 800 population by building their headquarters within city limits. Once that happens there is a script that will walk the player through what commodities, goods and products the population center requires to expand. The demands should be pretty easy, at the early stages, starting with passengers and mail. As the city grows, goods, coal, valuables and other items will need to be shipped in to keep everyone happy.

Here were the rules of the match:
– Map Size: 512×512
– Max Loan: $500k USD
– Duration (Game): 1980-2000
