Time for something or rather someone new: welcome aboard to our newest team member, Taede!



We know him as friendly and helpful occasional player on our servers. And recently he started to work also vigilantly on the other side of the servers which players usually don’t see (or which they only see the server’s nick name on the IRC channels of). Thus he proved himself already very helpful in maintaining our servers and started giving them a decent cleansing with a good amount of soap so that they become easier to maintain, more flexible and future proof 🙂

So tremble in fear before the new all-mighty one 😉

Welcome, Taede!

New member: Jam35


The Union Of Brainmelt is growing by one more person to the pack!

Jam35 has made considerable appearance on all of Public Server, Welcome Server and ProZone. His building style is not just learning (even though he already managed to know everything necessary), but also improvisation and improving with his own taste.

Apart from being a building machine, Jam35 is exceptionally friendly person with very good sense of humour (when he is not teaming up with others to accuse Slugs of being fat), and does not hesitate to contribute with things outside the game, be it providing savegames, editing sprites or other things.

If you need to track Jam35 down, just go by the smell of madness, and if you see overflow depots with PBS signalled priority around the depot, you know you have found him!

Congratulations and a lot of beer!


My OpenTTD Story

Hello, this time I am not going to write an article which would attempt to describe some part of building, or any other kind of documentation helpful for learning directly.

Through the time of me being around, it happened quite a few times that I was asked questions about things from the past, about history of openttdcoop, about what I myself did, what happened here and there.

To be entirely honest, I just got a new keyboard and I am just in the typing mood, which means I will not be paying too much attention to proper well thought out structure of the article or similar things, I will just put it as it comes and one more thing … and do not expect images! 😀

Alright, now we lost 99% readers by not including images, we can continue… It might be short, it might be long, it might be useful, it might not. Either way I hope you enjoy reading as much as possible and perhaps the article will help you understand how the things around here work.

I wish you a good read of the random nonsense which follows :>

Bring it

Ladies and madmen!

It is the time for a party again! Our inner circle is growing, adding a very nice person who has been around for a loong time, managing not just to learn a lot of things in various kinds, but also to build them very solidly, and placing them in situations where they suit best.

All of you know him, all of you love him (except people living under a rock), without further introduction, grab a beer and come raise even more madness with him!


Scheduled downtime of DevZone 28 August 20h – 21h CEST

On Wednesday 28 August 2013, starting around 20h CEST and estimated to last till 21h we will conduct maintenance on the DevZone server.

We plan to update the database server and the redmine frontend which allows management of the projects, thus access to the repositories will be limited during this time as well. Assuming all goes smoothly as in our tests, update will be done in 60 minutes, but we will need to check whether all things really go as well as our tests so far show.

We appologize for any inconvenience it causes.
