Quote from: Isaac.Eiland-Hall on July 30, 2016, 12:08:31 AMI like it, but I have a big concern: The example bus with two stops will never be profitable in Simutrans.
Quote from: Ters on July 29, 2016, 08:31:20 PMI had to smile a bit when I read "Do you remember OpenTTD?", because I don't. I remember the original Transport Tycoon that was before the "sequel" that OpenTTD is a clone of. I must be getting old.
Quote from: Ters on July 29, 2016, 08:31:20 PMThe first is that Simutrans is not really an engine either, as the code itself is feature complete and pak sets do not alter how the game works. Scripting is slowly adding some customization, but I don't think you can make as drastically different games out of it as is possible with a game engine. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a word for what Simutrans is.
Quote from: arroyoc on July 31, 2016, 05:37:08 PMI thought is was like an engine because paksets alter economics, and each pakset has different roads with different speeds so they aren't just "resources packs".
Quote from: arroyoc on July 31, 2016, 05:37:08 PMOne mistake is the "lie to sb" one. Are there any more easy-to-fix mistakes or is the problem related to how phrases are in general?
Quote from: An_dz on August 03, 2016, 07:27:31 PMWhere you say "Enroute" it's "Schedule", this word does not exist in English.
Quote from: Ters on August 03, 2016, 08:05:11 PMMaybe not, but close enough that Wiktionary has a page for it. But even the, it's the wrong word.
Quote from: An_dz on August 11, 2016, 09:41:22 PMAnyway, the big point is that the last person to use En route on daily speech in English has probably died in the 18th century.
Quote from: Isaac.Eiland-Hall on August 12, 2016, 02:49:39 AMEr... I use "en route" commonly. Although that's different than "enroute", I suppose.
Quote from: Ters on August 12, 2016, 05:35:12 AMI didn't realize Transport Tycoon was that old. Which would make it a science fiction game, I suppose. No wonder it was written in assembly.
