The OpenTTD 12 Title Screen Competition

image

Hello everyone, and welcome to the OpenTTD 12.0 title screen competition! This is your opportunity to design and help choose the savegame which plays behind the main menu of OpenTTD; pictured above is Chrnan6710's winning entry for this spring's 1.11 release.

New feature: Camera control

There are no major gameplay changes feature in version 12, but there is one other new feature: The title screen can now change between multiple views of the background game, and even have the view pan across the world, or follow a vehicle.

We want a title screen savegame that uses this feature to good effect.

This means the game you submit should have a well built-up world that can show off many sides: From bustling towns and busy industries, to quiet countryside and lonely roads.
Since there are no major new features, this means you can easily choose a game made with version 1.11 and add your camera angles to it. Just remember that title screen savegames are not allowed to use any NewGRF at all.

Title screen guidelines

  • This will be a first impression of the game for many new players, so create something which you feel summarizes the game. This is usually a busy, exciting scene showing off many modes of transport, but there are no rules about what must be shown. Also consider that new players can learn about the game by watching a realistic, well-running transport network.
  • A traditional part of these title games is featuring new features of the release. There are no new gameplay features between 1.11.0 and 12.0, but the ability to have multiple views on the title screen is new, and must be used.
  • A map size of 256 x 256 is ideal.
  • Use camera control signs to show many views of your game. Remember to test the commands you write, and that the player's screen resolution or window size can affect what gets shown and does not get shown. Test on multiple different resolutions if possible.
  • Note that any signs you place will be visible. This excludes signs used for the camera control, which are removed when the game is loaded.
  • Breakdowns will automatically be disabled. Cheating for money is OK. Unprofitable companies are OK. Building with multiple companies is OK. Building the game in the Scenario Editor is OK.
  • Do not use AIs, GameScripts, or NewGRFs. These are automatically disabled.
  • The game must be created in a clean, master branch version of OpenTTD or its official binaries. The game cannot be created in custom modified versions of OpenTTD or in popular patch packs such as JGR Patch Pack, LtJoker's Patch Pack, Reddit client, CityMania client, etc.
