The new mobile version of Transport Tycoon for iOS and Android devices has been released. You can download it from the App Store, Google Play and Kindle Fire stores. See the official Transport Tycoon web site for more details. I played with the game during the beta, and found it quite enjoyable – I’ll hopefully find some time to play it more soon, and will be able to get some new content up about it in the not too distant future!
Today it was announced that Chris Sawyer, in conjunction with Origin8 Technologies and AppyNation, will be releasing a new version of Transport Tycoon for iOS and Android devices. You can find out more information on the new game at the official Transport Tycoon web site, and you can discuss new developments over on the forums.
It’s quite exciting to hear of new official developments regarding Transport Tycoon, and it’ll be interesting to see how the game is adapted to suit mobile platforms. The press release suggests “every element of what made the original such a prestigious and enduring piece of entertainment” will be retained. I’ll post more updates when they emerge, and I look forward to a new generation of players discovering the excitement of Transport Tycoon!
Following in the footsteps of December’s Saved Game Manager update, I have released a new version of TTDX Editor, the first since 2004! The main feature is improved compatibility with modern versions of Windows (although TTDX Editor was less broken in this respect than the Saved Game Manager). The new version also includes a handful of bug fixes and some other minor improvements. If you’re interested, you can download it here.
I’m intending to release a new version of TTDAlter with similar improvements at some point in the future (although I’ve yet to start work on it, and TTDAlter was by far the most complex of my Transport Tycoon utilities). In the longer term, I also would like to work on versions of TTDAlter and TTDX Editor that work with OpenTTD (manipulating GRF files in the case of TTDAlter), but those will both basically involve complete rewrites. Maybe in another 8 years, eh? 🙂
Two updates in 4 days? I know, a rarity these days! I’ve completely rewritten the music page, and you can now browse a selection of recordings of Transport Tycoon music, including some new OPL-2 and OPL-3 recordings by Jezulkim on the forums. You can also choose to download most of these recordings, either from the music pages themselves or from the Downloads page.
Plus, don’t forget about the new version of the Saved Game Manager!
First of all, Merry Christmas!
Well, believe it or not, I’ve released a new version of the Transport Tycoon Saved Game Manager, nearly 10 years after the last version was released! For those of you who still enjoy playing TTDPatch, or even the original TT or TTD, the Manager helps you organise your saved games and scenarios with ease. I’ve updated it so that it works well on modern versions of Windows, as well as implementing a number of new features, including:
- Support for modern versions of Windows and user restrictions
- Win32 DLL plug-ins supported
- More detailed game information available
- More currencies
- Refresh option
- Plug-in installation improvements
- New “Play with OpenTTD” plug-in
- Assorted new plug-in functions
- Updated TTDIR utility
- New Setup program
- Plus other bug fixes and improvements
Check it out and download it on the Saved Game Manager page!
A happy new year to you all, and with a new year comes a new update! Nothing much, admittedly, but a few new links on the links page, and a couple of small updates elsewhere. Enjoy!
Well, ten and a bit years ago, my Transport Tycoon Station was launched! (The anniversary was actually in July, but I’ve been a bit busy lately and didn’t notice, I’m afraid.) Since then, the site has grown enormously, with the development of several useful Transport Tycoon utilities, a comprehensive strategy guide and reference, saved games and scenarios, and, of course, The Transport Tycoon Forums, which originated as an offshoot of the site. The Transport Tycoon “scene” has also changed significantly, with the rise of TTDPatch in the early 2000s, and then the creation, release and further development of OpenTTD in the second half of the decade. Will we still be playing Transport Tycoon in 2020? I’ve no doubt the game will live on, and I’m sure the Transport Tycoon Station will still be here then too. And who knows, maybe I’ll have even finished the new Repository by then! 😉
EDIT: And, as a little tenth birthday present, I’ve updated some of the pages on the site, and even finished a couple of those pages that weren’t yet finished. Enjoy!
Just a quick message to wish all visitors to my site a very happy new year. 🙂
Yes, just five years after Chris Sawyer’s Locomotion was released, my new Locomotion site has launched! To be more specific, I have taken over the site from Stephen Brandwood, who hadn’t the time to maintain it, and relaunched it. The site’s content has been updated, the design improved, and I intend to provide more updates when I can in the future. If you have any comments or queries on the new site, please get in touch!
I have finally got the Depots page in the Rail Building section complete. I’m hoping to get the Check Points and Stations/Ports sections finished shortly, too, which are I believe the last remaining pages to be completed here. It’s only taken several years. 😉
Don’t forget about the OpenTTD setup guide if you’re new to the TTD world and want to get the game installed!
I have added a new guide on how to set up OpenTTD to the site. I get many e-mails asking me to how to set up TTD, and simply don’t have time to answer them all. Hopefully this guide will help people set up OpenTTD, which is probably the easiest TTD-based game to get up and running. If you have any comments on the guide, please let me know.
I have uploaded an updated version of Mircea Pavîlcu’s rendition of the Transport Tycoon Deluxe soundtrack. You can download the MP3s here.
Well, after many years, I’ve finally completed one of those pages that said “This page will be completed soon.” 😛 I’ve also uploaded some new, high quality renditions of the TT Music, and performed a few assorted updates here and there. Enjoy!
Happy new year everyone. I’ve updated various pages on the site, including the Links page, the Where To Get It page, as well as an assortment of other updates here and there. As for when the various incomplete pages here will be finished… I honestly can’t say just now. But I do intend to finish them sometime. Eventually…
TTDAlter 4.3 has finally been released! Get it from the TTDAlter page.
Don’t worry, I am still alive! Sorry about the lack of updates recently, I’ve been rather busy – I’m starting university in September, and we’re moving house soon, and so on and so forth. I have updated various pages on the site today, including adding some information about OpenTTD to the Where To Get It page, and making assorted updates elsewhere. Feel free to get in touch if you have any comments or queries, although please note that I do receive a very high volume of e-mail from this site so I may not be able to reply to your e-mails immediately. If you have a problem with TTDPatch or OpenTTD, please do check out the respective manuals (TTDPatch, OpenTTD). Thank you for your support! A new version of TTDAlter will be on its way soon, by the way!
I have decided, due to the general difficulty experienced in finding Transport Tycoon to buy, and due to the overwhelming number of e-mails I get asking for download locations for the game, to provide a mirror of the game downloads here. If anyone has any problems with this, please contact me.
Back in April, Chris Sawyer announced Locomotion, the “spiritual sequel” to Transport Tycoon Deluxe. I will soon unveil my Locomotion site – keep an eye out for it! For the latest news on Locomotion, visit The Transport Tycoon Forums.
I have released an updated Norwegian translation of TTDAlter 4.2 – get it from the TTDAlter page.
I have released TTDAlter 4.2. This has many, many new features – see the TTDAlter page for more details!
