OpenTTD is a simulation game for transportation and a clone of the proprietary game Transport Tycoon Deluxe ("TTD"). The game's source code is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 2.0.[3]

At this time (December, 2010), proprietary data files from the original TTD are not required to play the binary packed game. Nightly/trunk build contains free media files. [4]

OpenTTD has many improvements over its inspiration, TTD, such as larger maps and online multiplayer play.

It was written in the C++ programming language using the SDL or Allegro library.[5][6]

Development[edit]

Branches of OpenTTD releases are divided up into nightly, testing, and stable releases.

History[edit]

OpenTTD originated with Ludvig "Ludde" Strigeus when he started reverse engineering TTD in 2003. Eventually, the project bears fruit in 2004.[7]
