Aw, forget, this again?
We do this like every 18 months or so, it was bound to pop up again.

What is this game again?
It's a tycoon game involving logistics and urban planning. It's a bit complicated. You can read more about it on Wikipedia.

Fine, where do I get it?
The link to the download page is here.

Server hosted by TomTheGeek. Any issues or requests, just relay them through me.
Password: borrowedtime

Server start date is set to 1950, end date is 2050 at which point the server will automatically restart.
Vanilla, no mods, temperate climate map at 512x512.
Default rules for now; we may experiment with a change to smooth economy rules on the next restart.

  • Don't be a richard. Don't grief, remove signs when asked, etc.
  • Excessive terraforming is discouraged unless it's within 5 years of restart date. Clear foothills and flatten terrain as needed, but use discretion.
  • Competition is encouraged, this is a free-market simulator after all. Just don't go overboard.

hello everyone

i live in west broward county and am currently under a hurricane warning until monday

i'm here to give live updates and answer questions while i still have power

at the moment, rain is coming down pretty steadily and the wind is gusting, but things haven't gotten super terrible so far

so, AMA i guess i'll post updates as things happen

here are some frequently asked questions i've gotten in various threads:

why didn't you evacuate
logistically, evacuation was never really an option—i fully expected to be present for the storm from the very beginning and never considered evacuating, not because i didn't take the storm seriously but because by the time evacuation became a very real possibility, a good portion of the county had decided to evacuate, so i wasn't quick enough to the gun

the eye isn't coming at you so aren't you basically going to get away with no bad weather essentially
not necessarily because the storm is just so wide that i'm going to pick up strong winds up to 100mph; sustained, it's going to be around 50 or 60, which is a lot better than what i was originally projected to get (120+), but i'm going to get wind regardless

can i have your stuff if you die

Games / OpenTTD [ONLINE] - Real-time parcel company inefficiency simulator
« on: December 29, 2015, 10:26:43 PM »
clicking leads to OpenTTD website

What is OpenTTD?

Long explanation (from Wikipedia):
OpenTTD is a business simulation game in which players try to earn money via transporting passengers and freight by road, rail, water and air. It is an open source remake and expansion of the 1995 Chris Sawyer video game Transport Tycoon Deluxe.

OpenTTD duplicates most features of Transport Tycoon Deluxe and has many additions, including a range of map sizes, support for many languages, custom (user-made) artificial intelligence (AI), downloadable customisations, ports for several widely used operating systems, and a more user-friendly interface. OpenTTD also supports local area network (LAN) and Internet multiplayer, co-operative and competitive, for up to 255 players.

Short explanation:
OpenTTD is a tycoon game where you run your own logistics/parcel company and try to adapt to the changing market through the use of different means of transport. It tends to be hard.

Server Rules and Details

Map size is 1024x1024.
Company auto-cleanup is on.
Start year is 1950, game ends and auto-restarts in 2075. A two-thirds majority vote of all active players can warrant an early restart.

1. Don't excessively terraform unless the game is about to end (like within 5 years). Clearing small foothills is okay, but don't make a massive river spanning the entire map. Transcontinental railways are fine if you're responsible about it.
2. Delete signs if someone asks.
3. Acts of corporate espionage and competition are encouraged. Just don't go overboard.

Come on in and watch me complain about systems that have nothing in them.

I'm playing some classical music at the moment while I get everything ready. I should be ready within ten minutes of posting this.

Nope, never mind. It doesn't want to cooperate.

Off Topic / Trying to find the name of a song or its music video.
« on: March 04, 2015, 03:55:22 PM »
Every day, my school's announcements play a music video before the announcements actually start. On Monday, they played this music video that featured different shots of animals from Africa and South America interspersed with shots of the landscape, including a specific panned shot over the top of a waterfall. It sounded like an electronic/dance song, and must be somewhat recent.

I've asked people at school about it, but nobody seems to know. If any of you guys happen to know, that'd be great.

Happy Oscar Sunday! For those of you in the United States, the ceremony starts at 8:30 PM EST/5:30 PM PST on ABC. Alternatively, the livestream will be available here to select areas. You'll be asked to confirm your location.

Unfortunately, if you live outside of the United States, options are kind of sparse. I'll look for a stream for you guys if I can find one, and for anyone in the US, as well.

If you would like a bingo card, you can grab one off of Reddit from here. Post your cards here if you want to play. Or don't. Up to you.
