The point of this challenge is to get to 100000000$ as fast as possible time wise playing Transport Tycoon. I have included in this post my own score. It is pretty weak in my oppinion, but it's only a start to get you started on beating me!

What you need to do to enter: play TTD and get to 100000000$ worth of money in your company value. You will notice that in my screenshot I have 100000000$ but 16000000$ more in company value, this is because I realised later on that someone could just sell all or most of his vehicles to get to 100000000$ early and would go beyond the point. Better not bother and go directly for the Company Value instead.

When you provide the screenshot, you will need to open the window showing your Company Value at the very least. All other interesting points, like for example my HQ could be interesting also, but is not needed.

Let the challenge begin!


In the hall of fame, we have so far:



1.) Luxurious with 100,059,492$ on November 21th 1973 (August 22 2005)
2.) Luxurious with 100,047,228$ on July 12th 1983 (October 4 2005)
3.) Hkizzle with 100,072,084$ on October 14th 1983 (May 8 2005)
4.) Another Guest with 100,058,758 on April 23th 1984 (July 2 2005)
5.) Eagle of Fire with 100,232,082$ on August 3rd 1985 (May 7 2005)
6.) Bjarte with 100,068,130$ on September 7th 1989 (April 15 2005)
7.) Eagle of Fire with 105,247,152$ on October 18th 1991 (February 8 2005)
8.) Another Guest with 100,011,494$ on December 7th 1991 (June 26 2005)
9.) Eagle of Fire with 116,489,644$ on August 1996 (November 1 2004)
10.) planecrash with 200,041,902$ on January 16 1999 (February 3 2005)
11.) Shrek with 100,054,380$ on June 2003 (July 12 2005)

It wasn't posted in the wrong section, you can't post images here!

Unless you use your moderator power to allow this thread to have images posted... Then it would be fine by me! k:

Ships can be very profitable when oilrigs start appearing on the map because they can carry lots of oil, they usually make me ?20,000 ($40,000) per year so you just build them and leave them to it while you do other things and use the steady flow of income.

In that game, I got ships earning around 160,000$ a trip. Granted, they did not make many trips in a year, but as soon as I get a steady flow of ships coming from the rig to the dock, then the cash can't stop coming in!

The best part is not the ships. It is when I build an airport or a train station to get all the goods from the Oil Refinery... Then the cash really flows in!


Edit: here is a screenshot of later in the game since I continued playing and are now 20 years later than the first screenshot. I wish to take your attention on the cash the boat at the dock just sent in my bank account... And I hope you get the point.

hehe, I'm still trying to get above 20 million. It keeps going down because as I get faster trains, I hate building bridges, so I build causeways so they can go full speed. Only problem is that building up land in ocean is very unprofitable. Does pretty good later on though.
