Coopetition – and the Winner is: Yexo

Hi there,

a long time since I blogged the last time, huh? Well, as I always pointed out, I’ll always stay in touch with ‘coop – and so I accidentally ran into a coopetition challenge at Sunday 4th!

As many of you may know, there is a cool mod out there named “Head to Head” for some reason: it features a map-generation logic which duplicates a landscape in order to offer a fair head2head competition gameplay! The mod is created and maintained by Yexo. Further information is to be found at the TT-Forums, the binary itself may be obtained at

Well, the game itself turned out to be a disaster to our #openttdcoop members! As Ammler went bankrupt at the very beginning of the session, planetmaker decided to keep the gameplay on a very slow pace and I made several wrong decisions in the first game year, thus giving Yexo a good opportunity to outperform all of us! Eventually, we did not even find a plausibly reason to disqualify him so we had to admit his total victory over planet ‘coop – see the screenshot at the bottom for further details πŸ˜‰

Finally, I want to thank Yexo (although he degraded us ingame) for this great mod and I have to add that I will definitely be around for a new coopetition session in the next days or weeks!

    I really enjoyed this game – even though I came only 3rd. I started with the wrong cargo and didn’t expand competitively enough and it was amazing to see the speed with which Yexo developed his company

    Thanks Yexo, Mucht and Ammler for this game πŸ™‚
