QuoteI have played Simutrans for a long time, but I have never been very successful at running a transport company. I play using the beginner's setting. I always begin in the 1950s, because I was born in the 1950s. If I have a large city I begin with a bus line connecting points within that city. Then I create a bus line from that city to a nearby small town. Then I create a bus line that connects the first small town to another small town. Etc etc.If I don't have a large city I create a chain of bus lines connecting small towns. I buy small buses with a low maintenance cost.
QuoteBut after a few game months my bus stops are very crowded. I add buses to handle the extra passengers. Soon, I am losing a lot of money. Eventually I add truck lines to move products around, but not long after that I am losing so much money it's useless to continue, so I just start a new game.
QuoteI have a lot of fun playing Simutrans, but I'm not very good at it and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Maybe expanding too fast? I don't know. I watch YouTube videos where players have large, beautiful transport networks, but I wonder how they do it.

QuoteI downloaded Simutrans-Extended recently, but I read that it has a "steep learning curve," so maybe it is not a good idea to even try to play it.
