OpenTTD 12.0 - Open Source Transport Tycoon Deluxe Gets a New Multiplayer Experience

We haven't featured many open source games lately, so here's an update you might be interested in, is the latest open source build for Transport Tycoon Deluxe ' as 'OpenTTD 12.0 '. Although this was released over the weekend and didn't appear in our inbox, I thought it still worthy of a mention, especially as Transport Tycoon Deluxe by Chris Sawyer was one of the highlights on the PC in the mid 90's.  This open source version makes the game so much better especially if you enjoy running your very own transport company, such as bigger maps, stable multiplayer mode for up to 255 players in 15 companies and much much more.

We've featured OpenTTD for many years now, and this version was certainly worth a write up, as according to the team behind the game, this is a huge update to OpenTTD as a massive improvement to performance on the video drivers on all platformers have been made, and 12.0 makes setting up multiplayer games painless. And that's pretty much all there is to say, but do be aware for OpenTTD you can use the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe data files IF you so wish but there are (free alternatives without the need for TTD: OpenGFX (graphics), OpenSFX (sound) and OpenMSX (music). These can be installed automatically by the Windows and OS/2 installers.
