    Lol, yeah. You can get a loan of 1.4mill now though, so that should be plenty to get something started.

    Does it need a restart?

    Possibly. The connectivity seems to have been a bit stuttery - every minute or two it will lose connection for 10 seconds and everything pauses.

    Also, could you consider running the extra zoom version - it makes dealing with directional signals on diagonal rail much less prone to mistakes.

    If there was a possibility of arranging the same start time for all players, I'd then suggest that using a very small map would be better. Large maps are quite fun in a therapeutic way but the competitive aspects of the game play only come into their own when people are being forced to compete for the same limited resources.

    Thanks BTW for hosting this.

    I think you've got the auto-save period set too often. It seems to do it every 1-2 minutes, and as it takes 8 seconds each time, it is jarring at the moment.

    I like the idea of an 'everyone start at the same time' idea, but the only way I could think of doing that would be something like a weekend tournament or something.

    The extra zoom I was hoping to wait till for the new version of openttd - it's in the beta so hopefully it'll stay.

    I thought that was just me, it's defo not connectivity as it's not even hit the 100kps, I burst to 1mbps when I got the os files, it could be the fact the cpu too high, it's only a low-end server (PC Engines alix3d3 product file). Was trying to fix munin on it but I've yet to fix it since I've rebuilt it, to prove it.

    OK, will change that, what's a better option?

    If it's still dropping out after changing the auto save I'll go back to 512x512.

    I'd say set it to every 10 minutes. That way, if something fails, you only lose 10 minutes of changes.

    Might change the name as well to "Edugeek OpenTTD server" or something, thoughts? Would EduGeek be happy if it used it's name?

    Same here, although I could tether laptop to phone and have some fun. Might be hard to explain if someone walks into my cupboard though.
