I do not see how this relates to the fairness (i.e. balance) of the game - can you explain?
I fully understand that but I build lines which are realistically meant to be ran at 75mph and not any faster (for example 90mph+)

I think I do things quite differently in Simutrans than I did in Transport Tycoon. It might have something to do with having matured as a planner, but I think the rather fundamental differences in how signals and routing work are more to "blame".

The principles in Simutrans are very simple. Vehicles go from waypoint to waypoint along the easiest possible route (simply put: shortest and straightest). Other individual vehicles have no impact as to which route is chosen. Once a route is chosen at departure, a vehicle will stick to it stubbornly unless you remove the road in front of it, block it with no-entry signs or similar, or change the schedule. So just make sure two trains will never meet head-on, and then start experimenting with how to make things flow best. Regular one-way signals are the bread and butter of a Simutrans signaling system, and virtually any railroad network with more than one train will need signals. Other signal types, even two-way regular signals, solve very specific problems. It is always possible to do without them, although it might be more expensive. (It is possible to do without any signals at all, but the workarounds would be far more obvious and tedious.)

Nah, if you don't know how to write it, just write it with an S. It doesn't matter if the later part of the word is correct or not, once you replace the C with an S it becomes a reference, and any misspelling would seem intended.

In my case, I really just wanted the word to miss a letter for aesthetic reasons, and if possible, one should always remove a letter that is not required so the clarity is not obstructed (unless you want to obstruct clarity, see laughterhouse)

(And that's not lava, that's just a crack in the earth with a red light shining through. I originally used purple, so there would not be a liquid to associate with it and a bit more mysterious, but I was told it needs to be red to be evil...)

That is the cleverest way of covering up not knowing how to spell "cemetery" I have ever seen. ;-)

A un bon tas de dixaines de jours près, oui ;)
Mais même si c'est un peu une modification de me*de, ça permet de suivre l'actualité... ;D

But as for track layout can the openttd wiki be used as a reference in simutrans?
All that you have to do in that case is upgrade the weight of the track - I do not understand how this relates to the fairness of the game.
