    It depends - when do most people go on? If people are connecting during the day, by the time people get home from work, they will be stuck in the same situation again.

    Also, how about a larger map? 512x512 becomes crowded very quickly.

    Try to make it quick to load, I tried the largest size map but then you had to wait an age to download the huge map. Let me know if anyone wants access to the openttd.cfg.

    Good point. My tests at work had a 2096x2096 sized map taking about 60 seconds to load on the LAN, so over a net connection, its going to be pretty bad. How does a 1024x1024 map fare?

    Muahaha, my empire has sprung from nowhere! Have to admit, I've taken the easy route of air travel though, instant profit really!

    Have been playing this a bit single player. Conclusion: I suck.

    Any advice? I don't like trains much as they get lost and the signaling is a bit opaque... but is it possible to turn a profit on a road network?

    Road profits are minimal really. Airplanes make massive profits - especially if you go for the 2500km/h jets.

    Trains are great fun - but it can take a while to get a design down and working properly. Spent a couple of hours designing a central interchange and then RORO stations across the map with mainlines and branch lines.

    The signalling works well, have you looked at the wiki for details? Loads of examples on there.

    I had a nice little mail/valuables company going.

    For signals, the OpenTTD Wiki is a must if you want to use them properly. There are two types, block and path. Block defines an area that is impassable if another train ocuppies that block. Path will attempt to create a route from Signal A to Signal B and proceed if clear.

    Path is easier to use as you place one facing the train at the platform and one at the junction where you want another train to wait (preferably so it doesn't block everything else!). Path signals can also designate a track as one way and they are defined by the signal with the white and red square on the rear.

    Signals are a game in themselves but easy one you figure out how to make places to wait and know what signal should go where.

    Just reboot the server, slight change to the settings, 10241024 loaded ok, but by connect kept getting issues losing connection, ok it recovered but… anyway, have set it to 1024512. See how that goes. He is a screenshot of the final results.

    I should ban myself from using air transport... It is just far too easy to make money, but then again, as I joined when so much land had been taken up already, there was very little else to do.

    Towards the end, I just started making my own islands around the edge, lol.

    This map, I've started badly! Overspent and now trying to recover.
