The route 87 highway connecting Wolverhampton, Leeds and Westminster can be expanded or upgraded but it must remain there.

Due to noise pollution no Airports are allowed on the northern island.

No construction is allowed on the Prince Jeremy Islands for historical reasons. (Except stations) (No station extensions) (No additional roads, rails or canals allowed.) (No upgrading existing stuff) (No Garages, cars must be shipped in)

The one way to and from the Prince Jeremy islands must remain the Prince Jeremy bridge.

The Prince Jeremy Bridge must remain where it stands for historical reasons.

No land altering in National Parks.

The only way in and out of National parks must be through the gap in the fence or by open sea boating.

National Park Limits:
Max road speed: 80km/h
Max rail speed: 110km/h
No Airports
Max Station Size: 8 tiles total.

The winner is the one with the most points when they submit their save file. You must submit your save file by the game year 2050 and April 30th. If there's a tie then factors will be considered:
Date
Net Wealth
Cash

Have fun and good luck!

Sounds like a very interesting challenge. Very ecological and pretty different from the non score-based ones. It's the new Challenge of the Day at the official blog. Good luck for all participants.

I find it entirely appropriate that you can get 87 points maximum!  ;D

Does this means that it is not allowed to build ports in the natural parks ?
It would seem the logical way to connect Bath and Newcastle ....

So far no problems, my game is in year 2012, generating good profits and I am busy expanding the network. Still a long way to go to connect all the cities.

Oh, sorry if there was some confusion about that. Yes, you can build ports in national parks except for prince jeremy islands.

I forgot to mention that as it has the Challenge of the Day status, the winner(s) will be included in the Simutrans Hall of Fame. Another extra reason to participate and try to win... ;D

P.S: @Fuzzy Peach, I've edited the score board, to make it more clear.

Run a bus line connecting Leeds, Wolverhampton and Westminster via the route 87 highway.

It should all in a single line? The same bus should stop in these three cities? Or can it be done with different buses... Fo exemple one bus does Leeds - Wolverhampton and another Leeds - Westminster.

Sorry, real life had me by the toes, ankles, and wrists.  I know it's after May 1st, but I'll be downloading it tomorrow and giving it a shot shortly afterward.  I saw that leader board wasn't updated yet, and thought you might appreciate the little extra interest in the contest, Fuzzy Peach.

I gave the challenge a go. I think I completed all the aims but I went bankrupt for quite a while before going back to being on loan. Is this cheating?!
