January 26th, 2014, 22:03
Version 1.4.0 (http://binaries.openttd.org/releases/1.4.0-beta3/openttd-1.4.0-beta3-linux-generic-amd64.tar.gz) of the most intellectually challenging OSS game out there (IMO), OpenTTD (http://openttd.org/) (Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe), is near at hand. Of course, most servers are still running 1.3.3 (the last stable (http://www.openttd.org/en/download-stable), major version change, from November/December-ish). N-Ice.org (http://n-ice.org/openttd) typically waits until a stable release has been around for a minute to implement the changes into its online client (which is as yet unavailable as a binary for Linux; it varies only slightly from the official release and non-Windows users are able to interface with it no problem), but there are exciting developments coming down the pipe for OpenTTD. 'The new SSE blitters were also further improved. Not immediately noticeable but useful in the future, are the new string codes to display amounts of cargo in NewGRFs. For our Korean users, the separators in numbers were fixed.' Here is some information on the history of OTTD (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenTTD#History)."
