I have been around openttdcoop for a long time, built a lot of stuff, made some plans, wrote a lot of blog/wiki articles. Now my number one activity is making NewGRFs.

Blog article about my earlier times around OpenTTD

NewGRFs I make

NUTS Unrealistic Train Set

My first NewGRF was this pixel-drawn train set. I started working on it because of missing functionalities in other train sets at that time.

That makes it very focused on functionality, so it lets you do all kinds of stuff like:

  • universal tracks allow autoreplacing between any track types
  • works with any industry set
  • allows for any refit
  • huge variety of engines fits every network to the max
  • recolouring for city networks
  • vehicles expire sensibly
  • coloured tracks useful for orientation in your tracks

YETI Extended Towns & Industries

In order to extend OpenTTD gameplay in functionality, the best way to go is NewGRF industries. (I do not want to code game scripts :P)

YETI is systematic and different to any other - both functionally, and visually. Key features are:

  • 17 industries creating a 3-chain system
  • Workers cargo - no random productions
  • Cargo gets processed over time - dynamically
  • 32bpp/ExtraZoom graphics, some with animations

YETI 0.0.1 release

RAWR Absolute World Replacement

And because I am quite happy with how the game works, yet I still want to create graphics, I started putting effort towards purely graphical replacement of game sprites.

  • no functions means you can use it as static NewGRF
  • no functions means it can eventually become a base set easily
  • parameters allow to force a landscape visually
  • 32bpp/ExtraZoom graphics

BRIX Realism Is XXXX

I was not happy enough with RAWR and it was easier to start a new project instead of continuing it, so I started BRIX.

  • no functionality means you can use it as static NewGRF
  • 32bpp/ExtraZoom graphics
  • fully functional 8bpp graphics
  • available versions without 32bpp or extra zoom
  • focus on x1 zoom level and clarity
  • parameters to disable individual features

My Ancient Savegames

Here you can download some of my savegames. There are four, TL5game is the oldest one and then it chronologically goes wit hTL3, TL1 and RV game. These games are much like my Top games as they were completely finished. The train games were finished when I just felt like it, the RV game ended when I reached my goal of 5000 vehicles with no jams. Enjoy it :)
